Top 10 Concealers.

Ahh, concealers. I am picky about mine. I use various concealers to cover dark circles, dark spots and imperfections. I also use them to even out my skin tone and to highlight my face. I have a few concealers that I depend on and use different concealers depending on the season. Coming up with a list of my top ten concealers was easy actually, because I do use a lot of them on a regular basis.

Top 10 Concealers

I have a a major concealer trick that I swear by. It seems simple, but once you try it, you will thank me for it. Mix your undereye concealer with a dab of eye cream. This not only helps to make your concealer go on more smooth and even, it prevents your concealer from settling into your fine lines around your eyes. Try it and let me know what you think.

Now, onto my favorite concealers.

Top 10 Concealers

1. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer - This concealer is not just for undereye circles, it is designed to be used anywhere you need a little cover up or even-ing out too. It is very easy to blend and it's buildable to get custom coverage.

2. It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye - If you need to hide a multitude of flaws, this long lasting highly pigmented concealer will do the trick. If offers full coverage so even the darkest of circles and age spots are covered with ease.

3. Benefit Fake Up Crease Control Hydrating Concealer - Fake Up instantly hides dark circles as it diffuses those creases (fine lines) for silky smooth, long-lasting coverage.

4. Smashbox Photo Op Under Eye Brightener - This creamy peach-tinted iridescent makeup perks up the undereye area making it look lighter, brighter, and over-all fresh. Just a few dabs under the eye does the trick, and it even works well on the inside corners of the eyes.

5. MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Invisible Cover Concealer - This HD formula gives medium coverage that is nearly invisible to the eyes. It goes on very evenly and covers everything from blemishes to undereye circles in seconds.

6. MAC Pro Longwear Concealer - A blendable, all-over concealer that provides full coverage, this creates a beautiful natural, matte finish that lasts up to 15 hours.

7. YSL Touche Éclat - This magic wand simply illuminates light and radiance, just where I need it. This is not just a concealer; it is a highlighting pen for the face. It can banish all signs of fatigue as it lights up the eyes and areas of the face with a few simple swipes of the built in brush.

8. MAC Studio Finish Concealer - This very lightweight concealer offers very opaque coverage for the most hard to cover areas.It is water resistant, yet blendable.

9. COVERGIRL and Olay Simply Ageless Concealer - Mixed with a serum, this concealer stay suspended over skin, so like my trick above, this one never settles into fines lines and stays put under eyes.

10. Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer - This yellow based concealer covers dark circles better than any other concealer I have tried. I blend it out with a brush so it looks very natural and makes circles disappear.

That's a really great list. I have been meaning to try the NARS concealer and the MUFE HD concealer! Now they are on my list!
I'd love to check out the MUFE concealer! Your list is giving me so many lemmings!
Of course we have many of the same concealers, lol! :) Love your list!
I've heard the NARS Radiant is amazing.
I love the IT Cosmetics bye Bye Undereye Concealer! It came free in a gift with purchase thing and I never would've tried it if I didn't run out of my MAC one. I'm so glad I did! It's the best I have ever used. I am glad to see it on so many best lists. It really is great!
I need to try BeneFit's Fake Up for sure!!!!
What a great list you have. I'm going to check out some more. I use the MAC Pro Longwear after switching from the Studio Finish a few years ago. It offers great just as good of coverage and maybe even better coverage then the thicker Studio Finish in a lighter better performing formula.
Pink - How have you not tried the NARS or MUFE?

Brooke - I can't believe that you haven't tried that MUFE HD concealer?

Nancy - I thought the same thing when I saw you list :)

Phyrra - Yes, NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is amazing. I can't believe that you haven't tried it.

Susie - Happy to hear you are a fan of the It Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer too.

Pammy - You'll love Fake Up!

Tracey - That is too funny because I used to use the Studio Finish concealer too, but like the Pro Longwear so much more as well.
No drugstore brands? I have a small budget for beauty.
I really want to try out the Benefit!
Great list (especially since I agree with so many of your choices). I never could find a good color with Cover Girl which is too bad.
I use 3 of these. Not at the same time, but sometimes I think I have dark circles, and sometimes I need highlighting and sometimes I need more brightening. Glad I am in good company! I trust your opinion so much. I like that a lot of you girls agree!!
Alicia - I do have COVERGIRL on the list! Check out that COVERGIRL and Olay Simply Ageless Concealer. I know you'll love it!

Christine - I can't believe that you haven't tried that one yet.

Marcia - It is funny how many similar favorites we had. It goes to show that we know a good thing when we try it. :)

Jane - I'm glad to hear that we are in good company too! I guess we know a good thing when we try it.
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye is my go to concealer for sure!!!!! Love it and it came with an awesome dual ended brush, one end to add the concealer with and the other end to blend with finishing powder to set it!

LOVE IT!
I like the Benefit concealer with the cores. It is good because it doesn't go into my wrinkles and I need it to stay out of there LOL.
YSL Touche Eclat really isn't meant to be used as a concealer, it's a highlighter. Watch the Youtube tutorial by MU Wayne Goss about this product. He talks about how most people (myself included until I watched his vid) use the product wrong (as concealer). I love the NARS concealer for under eye!
