Need good concealer to cover broken capillaries

Started 1264614565 in Beauty Banter | Last reply 1264719676 by csv320
Hi, Does anyone have a tried and true concealer that works to cover capillaries on the side of the nose? My problem is staying power. I need something that holds up and will cover for at least 8 hours without retouch. Any good concealers out there that fit the bill?

Serious Skin Care has a concealer that covers everything...dark circles, broken capillaries....everything! Try it, it is not expensive....

This isn't a concealer, but, if I use the double ended brush, Laura Geller's Balance + Brighten cover's mine. I didn't think it would, but, it is doing a great job for me. My daughter commented that she did not believe how good of coverage I am getting.

Sorry ladies but the bisque doesn't work for me. I keep trying it and it only lasts for about 2 hours at the most. Which serious skincare concealer are you referring too? Is their more then one?

Just wanted to say Hi, Bixa and am wondering if you got your health thing worked out?
I have the same issue with caps next to side of nose and whatever I use always wears off. Take care~Peach

I used to use BE bisque but recently switched to BE summer bisque and it does a better job covering the red areas around my nose.

I just came back to the Philosophy concealer - comes in a case with three colors and a brush. I have the same problem - covers completely, stays on.

GoofyMom I totally second the Balance and Brighten.
I just started using this product recently, I too have a couple broken capillaries on 1 cheek and wow does it cover them. I apply lightly over my tinted moisturizer with a kabuki and then rub a bit harder on my cheek area and...gone.
I am finding this an amazing product. I had to cover a zit and used the lighter tone in the compact (with a shadow brush) and...gone!
So then I pulled out the lighter color again in the compact (with a shadow brush) for above my eye and the inside corner area and...gone also!
Dang BB covers all my needs.
LOVE THIS STUFF, I use the regular or medium I guess its called...
I bought a tube of Bye Bye Undereye that I was using in all these areas and now I don't need it, I feel like I wasted 25.00 bucks as I had this in my stash for a few years! Its her original formula.
BTW~ your nic makes me smile!!!

I have a lot of broken capillaries and Balance N Brighten really covers them well for me. I love this stuff.

Hi bixa,
I am the queen of cover-up. I agree with the posters that suggest dermablend. I use Clinique continuous coverage.
Whatever cream you use, make sure you set it with some kind of fine milled "powder". I like mallys powder that comes in a little silver square. I also like LG balance and brighten for setting. That should last 8+ hrs.
Let us know how it works for you. Good luck!

Thanks ladies I am going to look into the dermablend. I remember this product from years ago and the demo always impressed me so I will give it a try.
Luckypeach, All of my tests came back "normal" but I am still tired all of the time with no energy. I just deal with it as I really don't know what to do anymore. My bio lady had me try this herbal supplement to boost the adrenals but honestly it really made no difference for me. I really don't know who to turn too anymore. How are you doing?

I love Doris Dalton's new concealer. For something really heavyweight, I'd go with Laura Geller's Real Deal. Use sparingly. You only need a dot.

I so know what you're saying. I was SO sick of concealers that just don't stay on or settle into lines or just disappear after a couple of hours.
I use EL Double Wear and it's fantastic. I have major dark circles/broken caps, the usual and this one really does last all day without having to touch up. Best one I've ever found (and I've tried a lot)! Plus I'm a lt/med which is more difficult to find and theirs is perfect skin color - not too yellow/pink. LOVE IT! I also love Double Wear foundation which also lasts without caking, etc.
Good luck!!!

My problem is if I have to blow my nose, whatever is on the sides of my nose comes off.

Laura Mercier. Comes in a pot w/a jar of setting powder underneath.

Seagal, I am startled at how Laura's product cover's like it is. I never thought one product would cover the amount like it is. I have basically taken the need for concealer away, as, it cover's my undereye circle's + capillarie's + everything. I wouldn't have believed it. I use that double ended brush, not the foundation brush + it is super. I am just real pleased with this product + it make's my morning routine very easy now. My daughter picked the name for me. I am real goofy.

I love Diane Young's Redout. My feeling is that it is the best concealer on the market

My choice is Lauren Hutton's - high concentration of pigment plus packed with anti aging antioxidants.
