3 Concealers That Actually Cover Up Dark Circles

3 Concealers That Actually Cover Up Dark Circles It's Cultured
All across the beauty industry, every concealer declares that it will hide dark circles or blemishes. Although most concealers I have tried do a great job at hiding blemishes, they are not great at concealing my humungous dark circles. I mean the odd spot isn't hard to cover but the dark and sleepless circles are much harder to conceal. I have found that it really comes down to the pigmentation and longevity of the concealer. If it has little pigmentation, your dark circles aren't going to be concealed. And, if the concealer is renowned for creasing or wearing off after 2 hours, again, your dark circles are not going to be concealed. Having said that, the longevity of a product sometimes does depend on your skin type and whether you need to set it with a powder. I do have oily skin so I do need to set my under eye concealer. Having said all that, I have found 3 amazing concealers that do conceal dark circles, hide your blemishes and stays on all day. I have tried and tested these concealers without powder, worn them all day and they do a great job. Here are the 3 concealers I recommend that actually do cover up dark circles...

Firstly, the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Honey (Light 3). When I went into Space Nk and requested a concealer at the Nars counter that specifically covers up my dark circles, I was recommended, Honey. Honey has a pink undertone, which ultimately counteracts the darkness within my undereye circles. The best thing about this concealer is that it is extremely pigmented and will cover up any imperfections you want covering as well. It does a great job in covering up my undereye circles and I can't help but think it's because of its pinkish undertone. The consistency of the concealer is quite thick and creamy so I tend to save this for the Autumn/Winter months. Having said that, this is my go to dark circle concealer. I use this quite sparingly, not because of the price tag, but more so because of the pigmentation and thickness of this product. So, a little does go a long way.

Secondly, the Maybelline Fit Me! Concealer in shade 20. This has been widely compared to the Nars Creamy Concealer, which I do agree with. Having said that, the array of colours is not as vast but the price tag is much more enticing. I wouldn't say the Fit Me! Concealer is as thick as Nars, however. It is a much thinner creamy consistency. Yet, the Fit Me! still does do a great job at hiding those dark circles. So in the Spring/Summer months (or if you have are going on holiday), I would highly recommend this concealer. If you are like me and do get oily skin, however, I would recommend highly setting this one. It doesn't crease terribly but, by the end of the day, it will begin to without powder.  This is the concealer that still hides the imperfections and the dark circles but doesn't feel packed on or cakey. As I said, it is much lighter in consistency, which makes it the perfect undereye concealer for the Spring/Summer months.

Lastly and something I have discovered recently, the L'Oreal True Match Concealer in the shade Beige (Shade 4). Although this product is actually one not raved about as concealing dark circles, it actually does an amazing job at concealing them. As a result, this concealer has in fact become my recent favourite. I have been suffering from breakouts as the temperature is changing and having sleepless nights due to the humidity. So, a concealer that can conceal both is something I need right now. Although I could have carried on using the Maybelline Fit Me or gone back to the Nars Creamy Concealer, I decided to try something different. I came across the L'Oreal True Match Concealer as a bit of an experimental option and I'm so glad I did try it. I was so shocked at how amazing this concealer is and I'm very surprised it hasn't been spoken about more than it actually is. It is super blendable, extremely pigmented and lasts all day. It conceals imperfections, blemishes, dark circles and evens out your skin tone perfectly. If anything this concealer feels more high end than drugstore. As always, L'Oreal brings out a product that feels more high end than drugstore. It is also Oil-free and non-comedogenic, which makes this even more satisfying as I suffer from very sensitive and oily skin at the moment. Having said that, I still do set it with powder (just in case). Overall, this is my favourite concealer to cover up my dark circles and imperfections. You need to try it!

  1. I struggle with dark circles majorly but am yet to find anything to make much difference! I'm super tempted to go out and buy the L'oreal one this week now and give it a go x

  2. I don't particularly have a problem with dark circles but concealer is still the first thing that I reach for! I am currently using the rimmel match perfection one and I find it really nice

  4. The FitMe one works really well! I've never got along with Nars one, I've tried it twice and just can't grow to love it! I will definitely try the L'Oreal one though!

  5. I love Nars Creamy Concealer as well, been trying them for two months now. Bobbi Brown's Creamy Concealer is still my holy grail tho, it's thick and pigmented, but doesn't crease.
