Concealer by Barbara Daly for Tesco Review, Swatches and Photos

April 22, 2007

Because of its ยฃ3.50 price tag and the tacky-looking display, I swear I must have walked past Concealer by Barbara Daly for Tesco 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.

    Oh cool I will look out for it net time I go Tesco’s. Is it good for concealing spots? Cuz I need one that doesn’t make it obvious that I’m actually wearing concealer to hide my spots.

    BTW excellent blog keep it up =)

    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?

    is it the best undereye concealor you ever used? Can you cp it for me, thanks! I live in the US.


  • Reply Phyllis April 27, 2007 at 2:58 pm

    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).

    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

    • Reply Phyllis November 17, 2008 at 1:12 pm

      Hi Dinkybinky,

      You canโ€™t get the concealer on Tescoโ€™s website. You have to go to a Tesco superstore where they carry the whole line.

  • Reply YONGWONHI October 21, 2008 at 7:33 pm

    is there a way to buy this online..? and in what shade does this come?

    • Reply Phyllis November 16, 2008 at 10:12 am

      Hi Yongwonhi, the Babara Daly concealer is only available at certain Tesco stores โ€“ you cannot get it online anywhere. It comes in 3 shades: Fair, Light and Warm.
