Best Concealers

So very few women have a concealer that they’re 100% attached to. Balancing out consistency with pigment is a delicate balance that for some reason isn’t often achieved. Many times what looks to be a good concealer upon application, becomes creased, obvious or just disappears altogether.

Of course there are a few that have achieved cult status like Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat for its airy light luminosity, Laura Mercier’s Secret Camouflage for it’s rich consistency, and Cle De Peau Concealer for its silky feel. So let me introduce you to a few more gems that hide discolorations, fight smudging and creasing, and last all day long.


When I saw a concealer by a company I didn’t know selling at Sephora under their ‘Best Sellers’ for $40, I knew I had to pony up the dough. Who is AmazingCosmetics and what’s so incredible about this concealer? Quickly I discovered that this full coverage, waterproof concealer smoothes over imperfections covering them completely without appearing cakey or the least bit visible while using only the prescribed ‘pin dot amount.’


Time Balm, a cream concealer from The Balm, touts itself as anti-wrinkle meaning it doesn’t settle into fine lines causing new imperfections while trying to hide the old ones. Even the most stubborn dark circles can’t stand up to the powder of this little pot packed with vitamins A, C and E. On several occasions, Time Balm has cut the dark circles that I would’ve otherwise used 2 separate concealers to cancel darkness around the eyes, and the creamy consistency is even appropriate for a more mature eye.


BECCA’s Compact Concealer has you covered in a few different ways with their ingenious little split pan. One side is a creamier version providing medium cover, while the other side gives full coverage with a slightly dryer consistency for bigger jobs. Find your perfect combination for what suits your face and eye areas. And with an impressive shade range of 34 colors, everyone is sure to find their ideal match.
