My top 5 Drugstore concealers

Who doesn’t want the closest thing to perfect skin especially when dealing with dark circles from a long dreadful night. Resisting the temptation to layer on foundation to hide dark marks: the lighter consistency of concealer allows you to create a flawless base, as well as give a quick cover up just to run an errand. Here are my top 5 drugstore concealers:

Maybelline New York Fit Me Concealer
After hearing from its customers, Maybelline New York has finally added more shades of its top-rated concealer to the selection, including both lighter and darker hues, as well as more undertones, too. Hallelujah — now even more people can reap the benefits of its lightweight, flawless-finish formula.

MY NOTE: Not my current favorite but still around for a backup or when I’m low on other products

Nyx Cosmetics HD Photogenic Concealer Wand
Don’t let the price fool you: This 2015 Best of Beauty winner stands up against even the priciest department store buys, thanks to its flawless, my-skin-but-better coverage, long-lasting wear, and richly-pigmented formula, which covers even the most stubborn blemishes with ease. The high-quality concealer also scores major points for its shade range, which features 20 “nude” shades for all skin tones, plus green, yellow and purple versions for color-correcting.

MY NOTE: Very pigmented so I normally wear this one during the winter
E.L.F. HD Lifting Concealer
This lightweight concealer can’t be beat. The long-wear fluid provides sheer, yet buildable coverage, while the inexpensive formula — infused with vitamin C, green tea, and mulberry extracts — works over time to brighten, smooth, and tighten dull complexions. Our only complaint? The shade range, which includes three colors for light-to-medium skin tones, isn’t nearly as extensive as it should be.

MY NOTE: Light weight and also combine with L.A. Girl Concealer
L.A. Girl HD Pro Concealer
If you didn’t know, this creamy, ultra-pigmented cover-up was one of Walmart’s best-selling color cosmetics last year, which has to say something considering the competition. Nonetheless, this affordable option continues to garner rave reviews, especially amongst beauty bloggers and YouTubers.

MY NOTE: Use this almost everyday, works well with many foundations

Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer
This Best of Beauty winner doesn’t just cover undereye circles — it treats them. The thick, medium-coverage concealer camouflages discoloration, while the high-tech goji berry and peptide-infused formula works over time to plump thinning skin, erase fine lines, and reduce puffiness for a more rested, youthful appearance.

MY NOTE: My new favorite undereye full coverage
