The Best Drugstore Under-Eye Concealers, According to Our Editors
Whether your concerns are dark circles and puffiness or fine lines and dullness, a heavy duty concealer can tackle just about anything when it comes to the under-eye area. The right formula, texture and coverage can camouflage discoloration and imperfections with just a few swipes, a little blending and some setting powder. Plus, given that we haven’t been getting a ton of sleep during social distancing due to the stressful times, all dark circle help is appreciated. Thankfully, getting your hands on a great under-eye concealer doesn’t have to break the bank. Ahead, we’re rounding up our favorite concealers for under-eye concerns — from full coverage to radiance boosting — that are available at your local drugstore.
Make your dull, dark circles look bright and radiant with a single swipe of this concealer. The sponge tip applicator glides onto the skin and the creamy formula provides an instant pick-me-up. It won’t settle into fine lines or wrinkles, either — it’s a must-have.
If puffy eyes (read: lack of sleep) are your main concern, then this Garnier option is perfect for you. The product uses a roller ball to reduce under-eye puffiness and swelling. The gel-like, cooling formula is also infused with caffeine to brighten skin in just one use.
For a concealer that won’t sink into fine lines, look to this L’Oréal Paris pick. It’s infused with a hydrating serum and glycerin, and the silky texture provides a radiant full-coverage finish that minimizes the appearance of dark circles. We also love adding this along our nose and forehead to give our complexion some added brightness.
This NYX option does it all. It covers blemishes, brightens your under-eye area and blurs imperfections. Infused with micro-pearls, it’s the perfect product to amp up your glow. Plus, if you stock up on a darker shade as well, you can use it for contouring. The puff-blender makes blending easy as can be.
Dry under eyes? Make sure your concealer stays flake free with the E.l.f. Hydrating Camo Concealer. It’s a lightweight, full-coverage option that moisturizes the skin and provides a silky, satin finish. Use the doe-foot to apply the concealer directly to the skin. Then, blend it out with your finger, a makeup sponge or a brush.
This concealer pencil and liquid concealer duo is perfect for hiding dark circles, blemishes and even tattoos — it’sa full-coverage with a flawless finish. What’s more, it’s under $10, so adding it to your cart is a no-brainer.
