If there’s one thing every beauty junkie (or well, anyone, really) has in her makeup bag, it’s a good concealer. Perfect for covering up dark spots and blemishes, creating an emergency nude lip and fixing many an eyeliner disaster, it’s arguably the most versatile makeup product you can own. Recently we’ve fallen in love with concealer pots for their thicker, creamier consistency and full, flawless coverage. They also stay put once applied and don’t settle into the lines and creases of your skin like more liquid formulas. Even though they offer super full coverage, they can be used for both full glam beats and no makeup-makeup looks. Basically, they’re the best. See whichn ones you should add to your beauty stash, ahead:
At $5, this concealer is one of our faves. It’s perfect for evening out your skin tone (we love the color correcting shades!) and the consistency ensures that it stays put all day. It comes in 24 different colors, and is a favorite of beauty junkies with deeper skin.
If you’re looking for something that’s pigmented yet lightweight, this is the concealer you’ve been looking for. It comes with a corresponding foundation (hence the $40 price tag) and is hidden in the cap so you can touch up your look on the go. It’s longwearing, water-resistant and is available in 16 blendable shades — you’re bound to fall in love.
For starters, this product is not only effective, it’s good for your skin, too. Formulated with organic ingredients and sensitive-skin friendly, this is a concealer you can feel good about putting on your face. It truly melts into the skin and doesn’t leave you looking greasy or shiny throughout the day. It also doubles as a light foundation (as many concealers do), so you can get the no-makeup makeup look with ease.
Lots of concealers are full coverage, but then there’s the Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer — a product that is the epitome of “a little goes a long way.” It’s on the pricier side of concealers, but totally worth it. Here’s why: It’s so pigmented that it will last you nearly a lifetime and mimics the look and feel of skin. It doesn’t look heavy or cakey and really gives you a flawless finish.
If you’re a fan of the Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer, you’ll love its sister product. Formulated with skin-loving, anti-aging ingredients like hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants, it’s basically a no-brainer. We love that it’s good for the skin and hydrating — and at $28, it won’t break the bank.
