If you are in the market for an under-eye concealer that doesn’t crease, obviously, the last thing you want to do is draw more attention to any under-eye flaws. Hence the word “concealer.”
Blemishes, dark circles, bags, wrinkles – whatever your ailment, it can be tricky to find just the right product to hide your imperfection, especially because the skin under your eyes is so darn sensitive.
If you have test drove a few under eye concealers only to find that your flaw has captured more attention and been made worse – well, we feel you.
Some formulas just crease more than others and it makes the whole situation more aggravating. You end up looking like you haven’t slept in quite some time, you are super stressed or you are aging quicker than you would prefer.
Thankfully, you don’t have to suffer much longer. Many makeup wearers have been experiencing the same situation for decades and the beauty industry has finally begun to come out with some all-star products you can rely on.
We went to work to test them all and here are the best recommendations we have discovered:
Top 5 Under Eye Concealers:
No ifs, ands or buts, this is quite simply the best, which is why it is beloved by beauty influencers and makeup artists. This high-quality concealer provides full coverage and won’t dry skin out.
It improves the elasticity of your skin without a crease in sight. It comes in 30 shades, which is almost unheard of. Shea butter, mango seed, and licorice root all work together to make this a “can’t live without” concealer. It blends super quick and with a $27 price tag, you will see what all the hype is about. One of these is sold every 12 seconds!
This five-star favorite is the MAC daddy of concealers. For 15 hours, this saving grace is waterproof and transfer-resistant. It provides “round-the-clock” realness and is suited for any skin type as it is hypoallergenic and won’t cause acne.
The comfortable matte finish comes in 15 colors and gives you a smoother, flawless-looking effect. You just tap a few dots under your eyes and lightly rub in a smooth, circular motion for a diffused look. It is $26 and can be found online or at your favorite MAC store – that is, if it’s in stock!
What can we say – we are big-time fans of Urban Decay at Organic Beauty Report. If you are a dedicated Naked line user, you won’t be disappointed with the Naked Correcting Concealer. And honestly, have you ever met someone who wasn’t a fan of the Naked line? Didn’t think so. This ultra-pigmented, lightweight concealer covers imperfections for up to 24 hours with its full coverage, matte finish.
With 25 vegan shades, this concealer features nine shade intensities, three master-tones, five undertones, and can be used for just about anything from eye primer, imperfection coverer, and cheekbone highlighter. It’s $29, but it will become an absolute necessity for your beauty arsenal.
The magic of Nars is unfathomable at times. Makeup artists rely on this award-winning Allure favorite for their top celebrity clients and anyone who sits in their chair. The quality of this concealer is incomparable. It’s so creamy smooth (hence the name) and can correct, contour, or highlight any skin type.
The 16 shades come in both full or mini sizes and use a multi-active botanical blend to hydrate, reduce the appearance of redness, and support skin resiliency. The light-diffusing mineral powder in the formula will help eliminate fine lines and wrinkles and result in a natural, not masked finish. It lasts up to 16 hours and helps your skin retain its natural moisture barrier.
Clinical results showed 89 percent of participants felt firmer skin and 93% claimed its effectiveness in improving any imperfections. Reviewers claim this to be “the best there is.” At $30 a pop, you will soon realize why this is such a great investment.

Clinical results found that 100 percent of wearers agreed it was comfortable and lasted all day. It feels fresh and leaves your skin feeling moisturized.
