Here is my updated roundup of the best drugstore concealers available in 2019!
Drugstore makeup isn’t what it used to be. Not that long ago, I would have bypassed the drugstore entirely if I wanted anything close to full-coverage or long-wearing. I am thrilled to report that it’s no longer necessary to spend $25+ on concealers from high-end brands, when the drugstore offers plenty of comparable options.
I’ve listed why top concealer picks in no particular order, so be sure to skim through the entire post for the full spectrum of concealer favorites!
*UPDATED: New drugstore concealers have been released since this post was originally published. In order to keep this info current and super helpful, I have changed some of my top drugstore concealer picks to keep up with the times. I plan on updating consistently as new products are released!
e.l.f. Cosmetics 16HR Camo Concealer // Obviously, has to be first on the list because I am so excited to try it! Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to get my hands on it yet, but I have no doubt that it will be amazing. I mean, it’s “Jeffree Star Approved,” and it has been sold out everywhere for weeks. I think this is new everyday concealer… as soon as I get it.
Revlon PhotoReady Candid Antioxidant Concealer // Revlon has some surprisingly great launches lately after a long streak of lagging behind other drugstore brands. This one is a great no-to-heavy option for natural days when you want to look fresh but not overly done up. Plus, the shade range is awesome, especially for a drugstore brand. *For the deets on this concealer’s foundation counterpart, click here!

Wet N Wild PhotoFocus Concealer // The Wet N Wild PhotoFocus line has been killing it lately, and this is another one where the foundation is great and so is the concealer! This concealer blends beautifully and is can be built up for more coverage, making it great for natural days and glam days alike.

L’Oreal Infallible Full Wear Waterproof Concealer // If you want full coverage at a fraction of the cost, then I think this is your best bet! This formula is super pigmented and covers just about anything. Apply just a little for high coverage without the weight, or go all out and wear a flawless face all day with confidence!

ColourPop No Filter Concealer // A new option on the block that can now be purchased conveniently at Ulta Beauty. This is another great option for lightweight coverage that stays in place all day. Just a tip, though: it does oxidize a bit on the skin, so perhaps choose a shade lighter than usual.

Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Full Coverage Concealer // If you have trouble finding a concealer shade that is just so, then you’ll probably find one here. Makeup Revolution offers one of the best shade ranges at the drugstore, aside from Colourpop. The formula is high-coverage and awesome for long days at the office or glam nights out.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer // An OG favorite that is, in my opinion, the originator of full-coverage concealers in the mainstream. The applicator isn’t my favorite, but the formula makes up for it. It is mousse-y and thin but still covers darkness amazingly well.

NYX Hi Definition Photo Concealer // Check out NYX if you have issues with concealer breaking apart on oily skin. It’s a bit on the dry side, but it holds up when you need it more. Blend this one with a damp beauty sponge for best results!

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer // Well, hello there, old friend! This has been my go-to for years, and it’s going to stay that way. The formula is lightweight and gives me medium to full coverage. I love it for days when I don’t want to mess with a full face of makeup. This is great for brightening up my under-eye area while also matching the rest of my face for spot concealing. I don’t know how it does it.

Pacifica Liquid Full Coverage Lasting Concealer // If you’re looking for something more natural, this is the most highly-rated option I have found at the drugstore. I haven’t tried it myself, but reviewers say that the coverage is medium to full and it’s hydrating, not drying.
