While lipsticks are eternal joy, concealer is a girl’s best friend! Long night out? A concealer will hide the dark circles. Breakouts due to a junk food binge? A concealer will cover the evidence. Sudden redness on your skin before an important event? A concealer will…you got the plot right? Basically, a concealer is one of the most versatile and useful products we have in our makeup kit, but which ones are great and which ones are meh? Here is my list of Top 5 Concealers in India in 2020, all under INR 1000!
1. PAC Take Cover Concealer
My absolute favourite concealer at the moment, the PAC Take Cover Concealer has a creamy, blendable consistency and provides decent medium coverage. This concealer comes in 23 different shades (including a few colour correctors), so you can rest assured that you will find a good match for your skin tone. The formula is suitable for all skin types and works well with both dark circles and blemishes. The price of INR 495 for a tube is great value for money in my opinion. 5 stars from me for this one!
2. Loreal True Match Concealer
An oldie but a goodie, the Loreal True Match Concealer is a dependable concealer for both the under eyes as well as blemishes. This too has a creamy consistency and provides medium coverage without feeling heavy on the skin. It is available in 6 different shades in India, which is quite a limited shade range for the Indian skin tone spectrum, but if you do find a shade in this range, you will like it for sure. The price is a little steep though (INR 999), hence I will recommend buying it during a sale.
3. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer
The Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer is primarily an under eye concealer, and it does a fine job at hiding dark circles. This concealer has a very thin consistency that settles down to an almost matte finish on the skin. It does not exaggerate the texture under the eyes as much as other liquidy concealers tend to do though. The sponge applicator may take a while getting used to, but once you do, you will find concealing the under eyes a breeze. 14 shades of this concealer are available in India, which is pretty good. The price point of INR 620 is not bad either. Will highly recommend it to those of you who suffer from dark circles.
4. L.A. Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealer
The L.A. Girl Pro Conceal HD takes the cake in the shade range department, with a whopping 38 shades to choose from (including colour correctors). Not a huge fan of the brush applicator, but I do like the creamy consistency and the almost medium coverage that it provides. I personally do not enjoy layering this concealer and find the Loreal True Match more suitable for layering. At the price of INR 595, it is a good option for everyday use.
5. PAC Spotlight Liquid Concealer
Last but certainly not the least, the best coverage award goes to the PAC Spotlight Liquid Concealer. This concealer has a thin, liquidy consistency that settles to a flat matte finish on the skin. As I mentioned, this concealer is super-pigmented and offers full coverage with just a couple of dots. Since the consistency is thin, it will exaggerate any texture on the skin to some extent, but this can be prevented by using the right primer underneath. The concealer comes in 14 shades which is not amazing but decent enough. The price of INR 765 is very reasonable considering how little of the product you will need for a full coverage look.
Hope you found this list of my top 5 concealers in India useful. Let me know in the comments which is your holy grail concealer!
