Yah, maybe you had a shitty morning. Maybe you partied a lil too hard on a Tuesday night. I know it was Taco Tuesday, but the bags under your eyes from lack of sleep and the chin zit that’s forming from sleeping in makeup and drooling on yourself (thanks, tequila) are not doing you any favors.
A betch needs an ally, and concealer is just that. It hides our deepest darkest secrets, be they zit, cold sore, or bruise from tripping and falling into a bar. Because we’re amazing, we rounded up the best drugstore concealers for you to dab on your face without breaking the bank.
1. L’Oreal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Concealer
This shit comes in about a billion shades ranging from warms to neutrals to cools. You can dab on a teeny bit for a zit or you can slather on lots for dark under eye circles. It’ll hide all your secrets.
2. e.l.f. Concealer Pencil Brush
If you haven’t bought into the e.l.f. line yet, get on that shit. They don’t test on cute fuzzy animals and their products are actually legit. The concealer pencil brush is neat since it isn’t a liquid and works really well for concealing redness around your nose from snorting Adderall, discoloration near your eyes from all the shots you took, etc. Plus, it’s only $8, so, win.
3. Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser
Check the interwebs and you’ll find this shit on every list detailing amazing concealers. Why does it rule? The haloxyl (lol wut) helps de-puff your under eye circles and the micro-corrector smooths over fine lines without settling in. It’ll literally make you look bright and full of life AND it lasts for about 6 hours.
4. Rimmel London Wake Me Up Concealer
If getting “the London look” is on your agenda and diminishing large red pimples is part of that, grab this eight-hour concealer. It lasts all day and works especially well on acne and scars. It does a bitchin’ job on under eye circles too, if you suffer from that issue.
5. Neutrogena Skinclearing Blemish Concealer
What’s better than a concealer with zit meds literally in it? Nothing, betch. Neutrogena is a fave of dermatologists for a reason. This shit goes on smoothly and is amazing for dabbing on a zit so you don’t feel like you’re making it worse by adding makeup for the day.
Now go forth and hide thy zits.
