Concealer Make Up Help?!?!

I've learned in the blogging world, what better "go-to" for advice/tips than your blog or blogs you follow..

I'm on the hunt for a new concealer!

I strongly dislike (I do not like to use the word hate) buying new make-up.. Especially trying new make-up!

I have not been happy or consistent in purchasing a concealer for a couple years, I used to really like and use regularly the Bare Mineral's Powder Concelear

After wondering why I had these bumps on my face that looked like a rash for over a year... I finally realized I was allergic to Bare mineral's make-up, I stopped using all Bare mineral's and my face was clear within a few weeks!

Before that I used the MAC studio finish concealer

I didn't like how fast the MAC dried up..

Recently, my current concelaer is the Bobbi Brown

After reading several reviews and hearing ramps and raves about this concealer I made the leap and went and got it..... To be honest, I'm not that impressed! Especially for how much each little itty bitty tube cost..
This is a well known concealer but for some reason I'm just not a fan, If I remember right it was kinda watery at first and then now it's super dry.. And in the middle, it helped with my under eyes but not really any "cover-up" like I can normally get both out of a concealer
You can read about it here: Bobbi Brown Concealer

Does anyone know how long your supposed to keep make-up? I read a few articles but still unsure

So what do you use ladies, what's your FAV? I don't have to have the best of the best, I don't mind spending a little money just not too much!

You are on a roll! haha. I'm actually needing a lot of new make up myself,...but I'm dreading buying it, one for the cost and also because I never know what works best with my skin etc. I currently use smashbox concealer from Ulta or you can get it from Sephora. I have acne scars and it covers them up pretty well! I would probably purchase again....
Glad to know about Mac, I was actually considering buying it, but I need lots of coverage.

Benefit has a great concealer. It is able to hide the "new mommy" bags under my eyes. : )

I'm a Bobbi Brown concealer girl...did you get the one that has the loose powder and powder puff? I know it's super expensive... I wish I had more to offer!
