Concealer by Barbara Daly for Tesco Review, Swatches and Photos

Because of its £3.50 (~$7) price tag and the tacky-looking display, I swear I must have walked past Concealer by Barbara Daly for Tesco (£3.50) at least a million times without even noticing its existence. Thank God I read the last issue of Marie Claire in which a beauty editor RAVED about this because believe it or not, this is definitely one of the best and cheapest concealers out there!


Created by world famous makeup artist Barbara Daly, this is available only at larger Tesco stores in the UK. Similar to MAC Studio Finish Concealer, it comes in a black square-shaped plastic pot with a transparent lid that says makeup-up on it. There are 3 shades available – Fair, Medium and Warm. I ended up with the darkest shade, Warm, which is a yellow-based color for my medium MAC NC30 skin.

The concealer offers excellent coverage and its creamy texture makes it really easy to blend and perfect for the undereye area. It never creases nor accentuates fine lines and it works with or without an eye cream underneath. It also stays on for hours and I never have to touch up.

I have been using this every day ever since I got it and I am proud to have become a convert. Now I just need to stock up next time I hit up Tesco.

  3. Phyllis, can you recommend some look for prom?

    I need to get my makeup done and I want pictures to show the MUA.

    would you suggest getting it done by MAC? I was considering MAC, Dior and I’ve heard Bobbi Brown is really good.

    How much would it cost? Hopefully no more than $50?

  4. hello. i know this is totally irrelevant. but i was just wondering if u could give me some advice. my eyes are quite small. and its single eyelid at the front and double eyelid at the back. so it looks sort of like cat eye shaped. i know. totally weird. anyway its hard to wear fake lashes due to my eyes. i just canot wear it! =/ plus i really cant draw my eyes cus it looks really weird, cos i have to draw it really thick so it’ll be noticable. so im just hoping u’ll give me some advice. im DESPERATE!! thanks phyllis. =)

  5. Yessssss! :D I completely agree with you..this is actually such a great concealer, and so cheap! I always go back to this concealer, after trying other different ones..

    Love your blog btw :D You’re soo pretty too..*envious*

  6. Well it’s kinda hard to say which counter offers the best makeover since it all depends on the area you’re in. I personally would go for MAC because a) I LOVE MAC b) they have a wider range of colors and products.

    Sure I will be able to cp the concealer for you guys! Shipping and handling charges to the US will be $6 and $8 anywhere else (sorry my paypal account is US-based).

  7. I’m interested in this concealer, so how much would that be for 1 shipped (the total price)? And how can I determine my color?

  8. Hi, can you cp the barbara daly concealor in fair and light for me? maybe a boirjois regard palaitte glitter pencil in black too? Sorry for all the requests. Thank you so much for doing this. Let me know the total cost and I will pay you by paypal, thanks!

  11. Hey will u be able to cp me the concealer…? i live in australia and i dont hav paypal… so can i use some other payment?

  12. This is driving me crazy – I’ve been trying to buy it but it doesn’t show up on the tesco website. Flipping heck what a let down. I’m surrounded by ‘small’ Tescos too. :/
    Unless you’ve seen it hidden on Tesco’s website? Have you, have you?? lol

  13. Dinkybinky,

    You can’t get the concealer on Tesco’s website. You have to go to a Tesco superstore where they carry the whole line.
