5 Full-Coverage Drugstore Concealers That Actually WorkJanuary 31, 2019
It’s no secret that we love drugstore beauty products. In fact, we’d happily build our entire collection using drugstore products alone — starting with eyeshadow palettes and working our way down the face (ultra-glossy lip gloss anyone?). They’re an affordable way to try a new trend you’re not quite sure about or to, well, just do your makeup. These days, drugstore products perform just as well (if not better) than pricier beauty buys and are equally exciting. That’s why we’ve rounded up the best full-coverage concealers money can buy at your local drugstore — from the holy-grail concealer hiding dark circles everywhere to the buzzy new launch with 24 versatile shades.
See our picks ahead:
A fan favorite, Maybelline Age Rewind is one of those concealers that instantly replaces all others and hides dark circles with ease. It’s perfect for concealing discoloration and contains skin-loving ingredients like goji berry and haloxyl to diminish the look of dark circles while also helping to decrease puffiness. Basically, it’s the solution to all of your discoloration woes and at $10 a tube, it’s practically a steal.
The L.A. Girl HD Pro Concealer has made its way into countless beauty bags and beauty-lovers’ hearts. It’s full coverage, crease resistant and comes in 31 shades, so you’re bound to find that works for you. They have matching color correctors, too, so you can create a flawless base using coordinating formulas. You can find these at drugstores for only $5, so do yourself a favor and grab two (or three).
After the success of Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Foundation, NYX introduced the Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Concealer, a lightweight, matte formula that doesn’t transfer and lasts up to 24 hours. With 24 versatile shades, it’s likely you’ll find a contour shade in addition to your concealer, so you can paint and blend your way to a more chiseled look. It’s also $8.50 a tube, so really — there’s no excuse.
If you need your makeup to last through a cry sesh, workout or any other liquid-inducing situation — give the L’Oréal Infallible Waterproof Concealer a try. It offers full, waterproof coverage, will only cost you $16, dries down to a matte finish and comes in 25 hues.
For when one concealer just won’t do, palettes offer versatility while still being easy to carry around. The NYX Color Correcting Concealer offers six color-correcting hues that can be mixed and matched to help conceal any discoloration or skin issue you might have and at $14 a palette, it’s practically a steal. The lightweight formula is smooth and easily blendable, making this one you’ll definitely want to add to your cart.
