Don’t we all love glowing skin without any blemishes, acne, discolorations and dark circles. Spotless skin gives us more confidence to take over the world. But it is always not possible, as not all of us are blessed with flawless skin. I believe that a concealer is a girls best friend by all means.
The time has come to share with you my Top 5 Concealers from the drugstore (high street) and high-end, for dark circles, blemishes, spots, scars, highlighting and redness. These are my top favourite concealers I’ve tried so far, and they work well on my dry skin.
Also, my skin tone is medium with warm undertones, and I generally choose concealers that are 1 or 2 shades lighter than my skin tone.
- INGLOT FREEDOM SYSTEM CONCEALER-
Inglot Freedom System Cream Concealer provides medium coverage. Positive points would be blend-ability and good staying power without creasing. It just blends in and looks natural. As far as the texture goes, its highly creamy and moisturising, so dry-skinned beauties are gonna love this! The pigmentation again is fabulous but its not an extremely high coverage concealer although its buildable. It spreads very well and even though its creamy, it does not crease or settle in fine lines.

- MAC LONGWEAR CONCEALER-
A lightweight fluid concealer that provides medium to full coverage with a comfortable, natural matte finish. Helps conceal and correct the look of under-eye circles, and discolorations. The texture is fluid, its slightly runny but not overly so. A small amount of product gives plenty of coverage and it dries down to a matte finish. The only thing we don’t like about this concealer packaged in a glass bottle is its pump applicator, which makes it really tricky to dispense only what you need. Inevitably, you end up getting much more than you need, and trying to put it back in is a chore, which adds up to a waste of money.
Shade: NC 42

- KRYOLAN DERMACOLOR CRÈME-
Dermacolor Camouflage Creme is an especially highly pigmented make-up which is designed to correct and cover skin disfigurements, discolorations and tattoos. Once Dermacolor Camouflage Creme is fixed using Fixing Powder and Fixing Spray from Dermacolor it will be waterproof. The texture is a bit hard so you need either warmed up fingertips or a damp sponge to blend this onto the skin. What I like about this product is that it covers quite well and gives a flawless look to the skin. It looks natural on the skin if you choose the right shade and is a good value for money.

- L.A. GIRL PRO CONCEAL-
It’s a magical thick formulated concealer. Crease-resistant, opaque coverage in a creamy yet lightweight texture. Its very hydrating and is perfect for girls with dry skin but works well those with oily skin as well. It settles into a semi matte finish which does not look cakey or heavy. It does feel slightly tacky so I highly recommend setting it with a loose or pressed powder to prevent it from budging or creasing later in the day. The L.A. Girl HD Concealers provide medium to buildable coverage which covers dark circles, redness, pigmentation and marks extremely well. The only problem with that the brush applicator soaks some product every time.
Shade: Medium Beige

- LOREAL TRUE MATCH CONCEALER-
Loreal true match concealer is a super blendable, liquid concealer. The applicator picks up quite a bit of product so I just put a few dots around my under eye and use my fingers or a dense fluffy brush to blend it out. The consistency is like a creamy liquid and it blends beautifully into the skin. It gives a very seamless, natural finish without streaks or uneven patches. The coverage is about high which is great for my dark circles. The fluid texture feels hydrating in the under eye area as well. Once I set this with powder, it stays well with minimal creasing.
Price: INR 940/-
