Concealers are, without any hesitation, the one thing I will reach for if I have 5 minutes to do my makeup. When the weather gets colder, I like to switch my regular liquid concealers to cream ones. Or, when I want to do a full-coverage makeup look (especially for a photo shoot), I will use these full coverage cream concealers. These are easy to apply, saves time and do not make the dry area of my face (like under eyes or around the mouth) look drier. So here I am sharing with you my top 9 picks of full-coverage cream concealers.
How to Use Cream Concealers:
There are 3 ways to use cream concealers. You can A. use your fingers, B. use a damp sponge, C. use a small fluffy brush. Whichever way to choose, just use a small amount of eye cream, let it absorb, and then dab the concealer in a small amount.

You can always layer products for more coverage, and it’s best to use a little amount at first, blend it well and then use more if needed. You can use a fluffy brush and use a small amount of loose powder to set the cream concealer. Here are some of my most used products which improve the performance of the cream concealers:
My Top 9 Cream Concealers:
The fun thing about these cream concealers is you can use some of them as your foundation too. All of these are high coverage and a little goes a long way. So even if the price point tips you off, just know that you are going to get a bang for your buck.
INGLOT AMC Cream Concealer:
This concealer conceals, nourishes, and brightens. Its formula is enhanced with skin-loving nutrients like, Vitamin E and A. It utilizes pigments and light-diffusing molecules to deliver a soft-focus effect. It’s extremely blendable and the concealer can be sheered out to a foundation. It comes in 8 shades. You can buy these from online here.
FACE ATELIER Ultra Camouflage Duet:
FACE atelier’s silicone-based Ultra Camouflage Duet conceals imperfections and dark circles. Each Duet has two color-matched shades that will help you color correct and conceal the dark areas.

MAC Studio Conceal & Correct Palette:
MAC concealer palettes are great handy-dandy palettes to take off any blemishes on your face or body. These shades can be used individually or combined to match any skin tone. The emollient-based formulas deliver medium-to-full buildable coverage with a natural finish, helping to correct skin tone and conceal dark circles, blemishes, moles, tattoos and birthmarks. You can get them online here.
EVE PEARL Dual Salmon Concealer:
This concealer is probably one of the first full-coverage concealers I have tried. It’s a lightweight cream that helps to neutralize the look of dark blue undertones and then brighten the look of skin for maximum benefit with a matte finish. Dual Salmon Concealer has two shades with the ideal combinations to ensure the end result of a flawless complexion. Using a darker shade helps to neutralize the appearance of blue undertones under the eyes and a lighter shade helps to highlight/brighten the look of the inner and outer corner of eyes. The concealer can also be used around the lips, the laugh lines, and below the brows. You can get it online here from QVC.
FENTY BEAUTY MATCH STIX MATTE SKINSTICK:
These Skinsticks can conceal, correct, and contour. They come in 20 shades, have a buildable cream-to-powder formula, weightless, super easy to blend and long-wearing. The best way I have found to use them is by using clean fingers. The warmth of the fingers helps the product to blend well. I prefer these as undereye concealers, and skip the setting powder as they set pretty well & stay put on my skin. You can buy them online here.
BENEFIT COSMETICS Boi-ing Industrial Strength Concealer:
This is a full-coverage cream concealer that covers everything from heavy-duty dark circles to blemishes and discoloration. It gives a matte finish and you will need the smallest amount to cover your undereyes. I like to use it with my fingertip by lightly dabbing under eyes or onto the face and then blend with a damp beauty sponge. You can buy it online here.
BECCA Ultimate Coverage Concealing Crème:
This cream concealer is easy to blend and works better if you use a fluffy brush to blend out. Use a tiny amount as this is very concentrated and full coverage. You will need to set it with a loose powder to make it stay longer. If you have a dry undereye area, this cream concealer will be great for you. You can get them online here.
KEVYN AUCOIN The Sensual Skin Enhancer Concealer:
This is a full-coverage concealer that is highly pigmented for buildable coverage. This product is a cult-favorite that can cover, correct, and conceal. Sensual Skin Enhancer Concealer is formulated with jojoba oil and honey, which moisturize and smooth the look of skin. It’s great to conceal dark circles, blemishes, discoloration, redness, and hyperpigmentation. It has a highly concentrated formula and you will require only a rice-grain-size amount for complete coverage as a concealer or a foundation. You can mix this product with a bit of your regular moisturizer and use it as a foundation. Get it online here.
Clé de Peau Beauté Cream Concealer:
This is the priciest product in today’s cream concealer list. It’s a long-lasting, full-coverage concealer while correcting the appearance of dark circles, spots, imperfections and uneven tone without a heavy finish. The brand has now changed the formula into an SPF one but the product is still good. Use a little amount with your fingertips and dab it on your skin. Blend it gently with a damp beauty sponge. You can set it with your loose powder or if you have dry skin, you can also skip the powder. You can buy it online here.
