Battle Of The Concealers: Which Of These 5 Offer The Best Coverage?

Aw, concealers.  It’s a complete world all it’s own.  We’re all looking for that perfect formula that will make our imperfections look like, well, perfection.  I tested out 5 different concealers and here’s what I found.

*I should note that I primarily need concealer for dark circles so you know what area of my face I was testing these out on.*


The It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer

Grade: B

Pros: It covers circles quite well and lasts pretty long.

Cons: It creases and has a sticky feel to it, making it a tad difficult to work with.


The Kat Von D Lock It Concealer

Grade: D

Pros: It’s packaged very pretty and has some use as a brightener.

Cons: It actually seemed to accentuate rather than conceal my dark circles.  I can’t use it as a concealer but I do use it to brighten my inner corners and on my brow bone as a highlight.

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer

Grade: A+

Pros: It hides dark circles flawlessly and was the best of all those tested.  It doesn’t crease and lasts for hours.  It also delivers a bright radiance, as the name suggests.

Cons: It’s the most expensive of all those tested, at $29.


NYX Dark Circle Concealer

Grade: B-

Pros: It covers dark circles pretty well.  It’s peachy in tone so it seems more of a corrector than a concealer but that may vary according to your skin tone.  It’s very affordable so if you’re on a budget then this’s the one to go for.

Cons: It can crease somewhat and may not last the entire day.  It’s a bit ‘wet’ feeling but does a fairly good job, especially for the price.


Bobbi Brown Corrector

Grade: A-

Pros: Covers circles well and is long lasting.

Cons: It lacks the radiance I was hoping for.

There you have it, ladies- my 5 reviews on 5 top concealers and color correctors.  I hope it’s been very helpful to you.  I’d love to hear what concealer works best for you. I’m always looking for new and improved when it comes to this product!
