Best Concealers

Updated on January 12, 2013

Pros and Cons!

So there are many different reasons to use concealer and they all can vary from light coverage to a full coverage. But there are pros and cons to both. Pros with light coverage: no cakiness, looks more natural, doesnt 'overblur' your face but the cons: you can still see dark circles or scarring. The pros and cons with full coverage .. pros: whatever your trying to hide is almost/completely covered up, gives an airbrushed perfecting look, cons: can be too thick, can appear chalky, sinks into fine lines. So this article I have personally tested the products below and have reviewed them for everyone.

No. 19: Cle de Peau Correcteur Visage Concealer, $70

Many call this the "gold standard of concealers," and that's why readers and celeb makeup artists alike want to carry it in their makeup bags. One reader suffering from acne claims "this concealer is amazing, smooth, creamy, and will make you look absolutely flawless." Expensive? Yes, but one reader sums it up by stating "$68 is a high price for a stick concealer. BUT … if one of the four shades matches your skin tone, this will be the best $68 you ever spent on a stick concealer. It covers completely, it blends perfectly and it stays put all day long."

No. 18: Smashbox Camera Ready Full Coverage Concealer, $20

One reader makes the sentiment that each line under her eyes "has a story," but that when it comes to dark circles, they "MUST GO!" and this product does the job. Others love that it's "not too yellow" and that it offers shades in a vast array of skin tones. Despite having a thick texture, readers say, "it has the power of a concealer, with the 'spreadability' of a moisturizer."

No. 14: Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer, $23

The light but creamy formula glides on with a finger or a concealer brush and erases imperfections from blemishes to broken capillaries to under-eye discoloration (which it excels at concealing). It doesn't cake, crease, dry out, or wear off," exclaims one reader. Others agree calling it "The Holy Grail of concealers!"

No. 11: Clinique Advanced Concealer, $16.50

A longtime favorite, this concealer "is particularly good for blemishes" and "not greasy at all" according to one reader. Many claim a little covers a lot of ground; in fact, one reader claims it's, "the only concealer that covers [the brown spot on her jaw line] effectively."
