Top 10 Concealers

We Used Industry Data To Find The Top 10 Concealers—Here Are The Results

Like many products in the beauty world, concealer has evolved quite a bit over the years. Available in a huge range of finishes, formulas, and shades, having just one will no longer cut it. Pick a matte option that matches your skin tone, and it's excellent for covering up blemishes and redness. Pick something a few shades lighter with a peachier undertone, and it's perfect for canceling out dark circles. There's also the fact that concealers aren't just for concealing anymore. Want to sculpt or contour? You'll need a color that's deeper and cooler than your usual.

Point being, there are tons of options out there when it comes to concealers, and they all have their strengths. To clear the confusion and help you find your go-to for every makeup need, we've rounded up a list of the most popular concealers on the shelves. From brightening formulas perfect for waking up the eyes to multipurpose options made to perfect, highlight, sculpt, and retouch, we're breaking down the 10 picks reviewers love most and why.
