9 Concealers Which Won’t Break the Bank06.09.2022
NYX PROFESSIONAL MAKINGUP BARE WITH ME CONCEALER SERUM
Concealer for dry skin from the best drugstore
This concealer by NYX Cosmetics won’t leave your skin feeling dry. It contains nourishing tremella mushrooms and green tea extract to keep your skin hydrated all day. The only problem is the fact that the pump applicator uses too much product. This means that concealer can go to waste. A doe-foot applicator is preferred to get the best marks.
The weightless formula is great for those with dry skin. Although we couldn’t achieve full coverage, the product has a serum-like consistency and is easy to reapply throughout your day. Its lightweight texture makes it less likely to crease if it is worn under the eyes. It has a light, dewy finish that isn’t oily and can be used for days without makeup if you are just trying to even out your skin tone.
BLACK OPAL TRUE TONES BRIGHTENING CONCEALER
Best drugstore concealer for melanated complexion
A concealer that can remove dark circles, pigmentation, and blemishes is the best, but not at an affordable price, is the only thing that’s better. This concealer from Black Opal is less than $10 and boasts a formula that’s so good it should be twice the price. This concealer is specifically designed for melanated skin and promises to not give the skin an ashy appearance. Its creamy, light consistency creates even skin tone and conceals any blemishes. The formula is easy-to-use (read: doesn’t dry too quickly), and offers buildable coverage that doesn’t feel caked on.
We love a good combination of skincare and makeup. This one offers the brightening benefits of vitamin C and turmeric, both known to be effective in treating hyperpigmentation for dark skin. We also get the moisturizing benefits from vitamin E and the soothing, hydrating effects of cucumber extract. This concealer is perfect for those days when your skin needs some coverage and a little boost.
NEUTROGENA HYDRO BOOST HYDRATING CONCEALER
Spot concealing with the best drugstore concealer
You’re likely to be sensitive to acne breakouts. This concealer by Neutrogena is ideal for concealing spots of acne. It contains hyaluronic to combat those side effects, and it will keep your skin hydrated while it heals. It’s also oil-free, non-comedogenic, so it won’t clog pores, or increase the amount of sebum production.
This concealer offers both a smooth, slip-resistant and flake-free finish for oily skin types, as well as a thirst-quenching, refreshing formula for dry skin types. There is no risk of the concealer looking cakey or accentuated lines. Instead, the creamy consistency melts into skin with your fingers, sponge or brush.
MILANI CONCEAL + THE PERFECT 2-IN-1 FOUNDATION + CONCEALER
Multi-use concealer from the best drugstore
Your concealer must be able to withstand oil, sweat, and water, as well as cover up any blemishes. This Milani concealer is extremely long-lasting and can also be used as a foundation.
To spot-conceal, we tested it under the eyes and all over our faces. It worked best when used all over the face. The concealer has a thicker consistency and may not look right if it is only used in small areas. The concealer was still very durable and looked great for hours after application. This concealer has the largest range of shades, with 45 colors to choose from.
NO7 LIFT AND LUMINATE
Best skincare drugstore concealer
The No7 Luminate Triple Action Concealer won’t leave any lines, such as crows feet, in your skin. This is due to its unique anti-wrinkle technology. To brighten and moisturize the skin, it’s also enriched in vitamin A and Vitamin C. It transformed dry and crepey skin into a brighter, more illuminated appearance during our trial. This was especially helpful for areas such as the cheeks and under eyes where we spot-conceive.
Although the formula is light and provides medium coverage, there are only five shades available, making color matching difficult. The shades we tested were also susceptible to oxidization and slight color changes throughout the day, making it difficult to get a natural look.
NYX WON’T STOP, CAN’T STOP, CONTOUR CONCEALER
Shades of concealer from the best drugstores
Although this concealer line is not the most popular in terms of shade, it was a great choice for those who want to be able to choose from a wide range of colors and undertones. The colors we tested were true to their original color (read: didn’t oxidize) and the undertones were varied to suit different complexions.
The formula was light and easy on the skin, covering imperfections such as age spots, marks, or fading blemishes. We would prefer a more hydrating formula. The formula is more liquid than it looks, but it will not do any good if there are lines or wrinkles under your eyes or elsewhere.
THE ORDINARY CONCEALER
Concealer that is crease-free
This concealer is lightweight and yet provides high coverage, so you can say goodbye to dark circles or pesky blemishes. The brand’s patented spreadability technology allows for the smooth application of the concealer’s silky texture. It’s packed with color pigments and blends in like butter to give you a natural, flawless skin finish. This concealer is not like other concealers that settle into fine lines. We found it to be flexible and crease-resistant.
There are 21 concealer shades to choose from. The numbers are divided into four numbers that indicate the shade’s depth and four letters that distinguish the undertone. There are concealers for pink undertones, red undertones, neutral undertones and yellow undertones. The shade selection was impressive and we were able to find the perfect match quickly. This concealer is an affordable option that can withstand concealers twice as well as those three times its price.
RIMMEL KIND, FREE HYDRATING CONCEALER
The best concealer from a vegan drugstore
This concealer is a great addition to any makeup collection that focuses on vegan products. The conscious concealer is 100% vegan and cruelty free. It also doesn’t contain any animal-derived ingredients, such as mineral oils or fragrances. It also contains 80% natural ingredients. The formula is packed with skin-loving extracts (such as aloe, vitamin E, and provitamin B5) to moisturize and nourish skin.
This lightweight, dewy formula is a great choice for dry skin. It gives skin a radiant, glowing finish that will get you compliments on how “you look good”. We recommend using spot concealer (a small amount goes a long ways) before applying the cream to the skin. Blend it in with your fingertips or a brush. Although the coverage is not very large, it worked well with our best foundation. The problem? The limited color range was disappointing. We would love to see more options for everyone to enjoy this winning formula.
GLOSSIER STRETCH CONCEALER
Best drugstore concealer for mature complexion
Do you prefer to use a tinted moisturizer over a heavier-duty base? This creamy concealer is lightweight and natural-looking. This concealer is one of our favorites. It melts into the skin and conceals redness, dark circles, and blemishes without looking powdery or caked-on. This brightening miracle is great for all skin types, but it’s especially good for those with mature skin.
This concealer is flexible because it’s packed with micro waxes. It doesn’t create fine lines thanks to its flexibility. It blends seamlessly into skin to create a second-skin effect that is undetectable. This product is a godsend when you need a quick boost. It can transform your skin from dull to radiant in a matter of seconds. This product is also great for those who prefer natural makeup. Although it is hard to fault this Glossier must have, some may find it too light.
