Where would we be without concealer? It's a handy thing to have on hand. It's zaps the look of zits. Hides away redness or pigmentation. It can even help to highlight your skin by brightening up areas like the under eyes, nose, chin and forehead. It's a little tube of magic. Of course, not all magic works as well as others - so which concealers get the Top Rated* tick from our fabulous Beauty Review members? Check these out...
They say: Crease-resistant, opaque coverage in a creamy yet lightweight texture. The long-wearing formula camouflages darkness under the eyes, redness and skin imperfections.
You say: I adore the LA Girl Pro Concealers! For the price they are amazing! They are sheer to med coverage. I use a lighter one to brighten my under eyes and highlight my face, then use a darker one for my contour as they are very blendable. Because of the price, these concealers in various shades -along with the correctors - are an awesome addition to my kit.

They say: Active Formula and Micro-Corrector Applicator erase dark circles, puffiness and fine lines instantly. Awarded the 2012 Gold Good Housekeeping Seal in Beauty & Anti-Aging.
• Micro-Corrector Applicator micro-fills and smoothes.
• Active formula with Haloxyl reduces the look of puffiness and shadows while fading the appearance of under-eye circles.
• Apply neutralizer shade for extreme dark circles.
• Brightener shade adds a luminous touch.
You say: This little tube is like Michelangelo painting a fresco on your face. It lights up my face like a halo but not in a too-much-highlighter way. The little sponge applicator applies a luminous veil over your darkest (eye) days. I've also used it to cover blemishes really effectively. It took me a while to find as word has spread of its miraculous properties so I recommend grabbing it on sight. It really is one of these 'great drugstore finds' we all love finding.

They say: Maximum Coverage Concealer provides blendable, wearable, customizable coverage for body and face. The Oil Free formula is perfect for hiding tattoos, birth marks, dark circles, blemishes, scars and more. Highly pigmented for for long-lasting, ultimate coverage and confidence! For extended wear, finish with the e.l.f.
You say: I use this to cover my under eye circles and some light blemishes, and it does the job great! It has a smooth creamy formula and blends well into the skin for a natural finish. The bottle is huge for a concealer (which I LOVE!) and the squeeze tip applicator is very sanitary and great to use.I would for sure recommend this to everyone, it's a great product for under eye circles and blemishes, and best of all only costs $10!

They say: Coveted by artists for its luxurious texture and luminous finish, new Radiant Nars Creamy Concealer evens skin with lightweight medium to high build-able coverage. Enriched with hydrating, multi-action skincare benefits and light diffusing technology, it creates a softer, smoother complexion while instantly obscuring imperfections and diminishing fine lines and signs of fatigue.
You say: It is quite a thick concealer but it's creamy enough to use under the eyes as well as using for blemishes. It blends well and even highlights the undereye area slightly. It doesn't crease under the eyes for me at all and blends in with my foundation really well!

With a few strategic strokes of this award-winning complexion highlighter—dark circles, fine lines and signs of fatigue virtually disappear. Powered by the radiance-boosting Luminocaptide Complex, skin is instantly illuminated, so you look rested and refreshed—even if you’ve been up for hours. Sleek and sophisticated, it discretely slips into a makeup bag for quick touch-ups anytime. It’s the one beauty essential no woman should ever be without.
You say: A simple must. It tricks everyone into thinking you are fully rested when you have been up all night, my absolute favourite makeup without any doubt. I have colour 2 and apply it under my eyes every morning and it'll last all day. I like that its light enough as to appear as natural as possible, doesn't even look like I have any makeup on! Thus achieving the elusive, makeup- no makeup look. Win.

They say: Wonder Pencil…the essential pencil that fulfills all of your beauty desires. Conquer 3 critical make-up tasks with one product: CONCEAL flaws and blemishes with creamy precision; LINE your lips against lipstick bleeding and fading; and BRIGHTEN your eyes along the water line. Will wonders never cease? Not with the Wonder Pencil in your bag!
You say: It hits the right balance between being creamy and blendable, but not so much that it slides right off. It works for concealing, highlighting, reverse lining the lips, and brightening the eyes. I can't recommend it enough.

They say: A lightweight fluid concealer that provides medium to full coverage with a comfortable, natural matte finish. Colour-true formula lasts up to 15 hours. Helps conceal and correct the look of under-eye circles, and discolorations.
You say: This is a cult product and I can see why. I'm on my second bottle already. It is one of the few products that lives up to its 15 hour claim. I've found it doesn't crease and even though the shade I have is marginally "darker" than my foundation, it does appear lighter on my skin and brightens the under eye area, and there's certainly some dark eyes to hide a lot of the time! I set this with a damp beautyblender and some Laura Mercier translucent powder and spend my day looking awake when secretly, I'm asleep at my desk.

And the number one Top Rated concealer, beloved by Beauty Review members is...
They say: Collection Cosmetics Concealer conceals flaws, imperfectionsand blemishes for up to 16 hours. Water resistent and transfer proof available in Light, Fair, Medium and Dark.
You say: This concealer is AMAZING for the price. I have quite fair skin and the lightest shade works really well for me, it works extremely well on any redness or blemishes as it is quite full coverage. I have been through 2 bottles and I never feel guilty buying more because it is so cheap! If you are new to makeup and want to try new things out this concealer would be perfect for you as it has amazing quality and is super cheap!
