Concealer TestingNext to foundations, concealers are my favorite complexion products to test. I am not heavy handed with concealer but I do like to use something every day to brighten up under my eyes and help minimize any darkness. Occasionally I will use concealer on other parts of my face, but mostly apply concealer under the eye area. I haven’t done an updated blog post on all the concealers currently in my rotation with a review on each so it is easy to find all the information in one place. My skin is normal to dry and I prefer concealers with neutral undertones. Here is my current concealer lineup (and a few ones I just finished but plan to repurchase) and my thoughts on each one.

Concealer reviewsNatasha Denona HyGlam Concealer

As soon as this was launched, I immediately ordered it. The shade range is amazing (50 colors + 6 correcting concealer shades). And it is formulated to be a serum-like concealer with medium to buildable full coverage. You can instantly feel the serum texture as soon as you swipe it on the skin. It’s incredibly creamy, hydrating and smoothing yet still covers anything and everything I need. It contains biomimetic pigments and texture-perfecting microspheres which gives it a flawless and slightly blurring aspect. I wear the shade N1 and it’s perfect for under my eyes as well as to conceal dark spots on my face.

It’s incredibly long-wearing and does not crease. It is suitable for all skin types but especially if you struggle with dry under eyes, this formula is perfect! I can see why it has become a favorite amongst makeup artists AND consumers too. Read my full dedicated review post here.

Kosas Revealer Brightening Concealer

I really love the Kosas Revealer Skin-Improving Foundation so I really wanted to try the concealer and see if it performed as well. I really enjoy this concealer and love the color though I’m not sure I would repurchase. It’s creamy and hydrating. But I still prefer the Natasha Denona HyGlam Concealer or the Hourglass Vanish Concealer. It does have caffeine in it which helps with puffiness and dark under eye circles as well as arnica to calm any blemishes. It’s a great concealer to use anywhere on the face and gives a nice radiant finish. I wear shade 01N and love how bright it is for under my eyes.

Hourglass Vanish Concealer (discount code: MAREE)

I need to repurchase this because I recently finished mine. I wanted to include it in this post because it is one of my favorite concealers of all time. It’s medium to full coverage but manages to feel weightless on the skin. It never gets cakey under my eyes and blends effortlessly. It also contains microspherical powders that blur imperfections and makes the skin look flawless. A must try for everyone! I wear the shade Creme (which is close to my skin tone) or Birch (which is a shade lighter than my skin tone).

Rare Beauty Positive Light Under Eye Brightener

Most of the other concealers in this post are designed to conceal and provide coverage, but this Rare Beauty Under Eye Brightener is best used for brightening only. It comes with a metal applicator that feels amazing and immediately cooling under the eyes. You can use it on other parts of the face, but I prefer to keep this for the eye area only. It gives very sheer coverage so it illuminates, brightens and makes the skin look so fresh and radiant. I wear the shade Light. Read my full dedicated blog post here.

Laura Mercier Real Flawless Perfecting Serum Concealer (discount code: MAREE20)

This is the newest concealer addition to my collection and it was an instant hit! Much like the Natasha Denona HyGlam Concealer, this one from Laura Mercier is a serum-like formula that feels super creamy and lightweight. It gives medium coverage with a subtle natural finish. It’s incredibly long wearing and works well on any parts of the face. The shade range is extensive but the deeper shades could be expanded ever further so I hope they do that. The shade I wear is 0N1. Read my full dedicated blog post here.

Haus Labs Triclone Skin Tech Hydrating Concealer

I recently tested this and thought I would add it to this post even though it was not a hit for me. I had really high hopes for this because I have read and seen so many great reviews on it but it performed horribly on my skin. It’s designed to be hydrating with medium coverage but it was so thick and incredibly drying for my skin. It felt like paste, was hard to blend and began to break apart after only a few hours. I wear shade 01 Fair Neutral which was a good match for my face but the formula did not work for me.

Tarte Shape Tape Ultra Creamy Concealer

This concealer was incredibly good and I managed to finish it which says A LOT! I wear the shade 12N Fair Neutral and while it was a touch light, I could blend it out easily and it really brightened under my eyes. I never tried the original Tarte Shape Tape concealer because it’s a full coverage formula and seemed like it would be too much coverage for my liking. When they launched this creamy option, I immediately wanted to try it. I can confirm it is definitely creamy and really melts into the skin effortlessly. It last long and gives a nice medium coverage that can be built up a little. I didn’t end up repurchasing it because once I tried the Hourglass Vanish Concealer and Natasha Denona HyGlam concealer, I preferred them a bit more.

Jones Road Beauty The Face Pencil

I thought I would include one last concealer in this post because I am a HUGE Jones Road Beauty fan (you can read my review on the entire line here) and wanted to give my thoughts on the Face Pencil. This is a pencil concealer that can be used under the eyes or anywhere else on the face to conceal and even out the skin tone. I tried shade 01 and while it was a good match for my skin, the formula was too dry for my liking. Even when I warmed it up on the back of my hand and used my finger to apply, it still never looked right on my skin. Overall I prefer a liquid concealer over a stick or pot.

Hope this post was helpful if you are looking to try a new concealer and I will try and update this post/add to it regularly as I try more formulas.
