My readers often ask me about concealers and which are the best ones! Well, it depends on your skin and what you’re looking to accomplish! For example, some are better for masking blemishes, and some are meant for brightening dark circles. So let’s dive in and compare some of my top picks, and then you can decide which will work best for YOU!

As always, all of the products I suggest in this post are clean and use safe, non-toxic ingredients. If you want to learn more about ingredients to avoid in your cosmetics, you’ll definitely wanna pick up a copy of The Ultimate Clean Beauty Ingredient Glossary!
Erin’s Faces Radiant Firming Concealer (⭐️ Becca’s favorite!)
$29.50, use code ORGANICALLYBECCA for a discount
Shades Available: 7
Coverage: Medium, satin finish
Notes: Silicone free, vegan, cruelty free, glass tube, doe foot applicator
These come in a big glass vial and are my personal fave concealer! It’s breathable, buildable, and has a satin finish. It’s a thicker, cushy cream and I use it both for concealing breakouts (it actually has ingredients like tamanu oil that will help heal them) and also for under eyes. I mostly use shade Magnolia but Cottonwood also works under my eyes for brightening. Plus it has hyaluronic acid so it’s very hydrating as well 💦 Since it has sort of a silky feel to it, I’d suggest using a setting powder over it if you have oily skin.
Pro tip: I even use this as an all-over quick foundation! So good. Erin’s Faces also offers $3 samples of the concealer if you wanna try it.
FitGlow Conceal+ Concealer (Reader favorite!)
Shades Available: 18
Coverage: Full, natural skin-like finish
Notes: Cruelty free, contains organic beeswax, doe foot applicator
This is the clean beauty community’s top concealer (seriously, I polled my readers and it was an outstanding fave!). But, I happen to agree that it’s awesome! It is on the pricey side, however, it does have added skincare benefits so it helps skin AND conceals. It’s got amazing coverage and this is one of my go-to’s for hiding breakouts. The texture is on the drier side and not as velvety as some of the concealers in this post so it stays put. I wear shade C2.
FitGlow also has Correct+ concealers which are color correctors that neutralize certain skin discolorations! They are less coverage than Conceal+. I use the Green corrector which offsets redness, blemishes, and scarring. And you can try samples of each in FitGlow’s Try Me Bag.
Honest Fresh Flex Concealer (Budget-friendly pick!)
Shades Available: 16
Coverage: Medium, natural second-skin finish
Notes: Vegan, cruelty free, glass tube, doe foot applicator
This one actually reminds me a bit of the Erin’s Faces concealer! While I prefer Erin’s (it’s silkier and has higher-quality natural ingredients!), the Honest concealer is a good budget-friendly option that still works well. They’re called “Fresh Flex” because of their lightweight and flexible coverage that also nourishes skin. It’s made with hyaluronic acid, shea butter, and niacinamide. I wear shade Sand and even use it as a quick foundation. It does feel comfortable on my skin and is pretty long-lasting!
You can use code HONEST10 for a discount on your first purchase!
Shades Available: 11
Coverage: Very full, non-shiny natural finish
Notes: Vegan, silicone free, cruelty free, glass jar
This is hands-down the fullest coverage natural concealer I’ve come across. Like, it can cover tattoos! Yet it’s not cakey and still feels lightweight. This one is a go-to for when I want to cover a big blemish (it’s non-comedogenic). It can basically be used for all sorts of concealing, however, I would not really recommend it for under the eyes as it can crease there (it has a slightly dry/powdery finish to it especially if the container has been open for a while). It contains jojoba, castor, aloe, and Cupuacu seed butter. This concealer is quite spreadable, too!
You can grab $6 concealer samples from Hynt too. I wear shade Light.
Shades Available: 28
Coverage: Medium, smooth and dewy finish
Notes: Vegan, silicone free, cruelty free, flexible doe foot applicator
Concealer meets eye cream! This one has caffeine, hyaluronic acid, and peptides so it’s ideal to use as a hydrating, plumping, and brightening under-eye concealer. I would recommend this one if you’re mainly looking to cover dark circles and liven up! ✨ It does hide mild redness and discoloration, but this is not one I gravitate towards for concealing a raised blemish, for example. I wear shade 2.5 and can go up to 03 in summer.
Kosas also has sample cards of the concealer!
P.S. If you’re looking for a similar brightening under-eye concealer but want lighter/sheerer coverage than Kosas, you might like the Saie Hydrabeam Concealers! The formula is comparable but has less coverage.
Best Brushes for Applying Concealer:
Erin’s Faces Double Concealer Brush: This brush is amazing because one side is perfect for covering and intricate application, and the other side helps blur and buff. The bristles are vegan and the wooden handle is made from FSC-certified well-managed forests. You can use code ORGANICALLYBECCA for a discount!
Sappho Concealer Buffing Brush is another wonderful option! It’s denser and has an angled tip for a slightly different application process. This also uses vegan bristles and sustainably-sourced wood.
As you can tell, there are some fabulous concealers on the market! Let me know in the comments if there are any of your faves that should be on this list! 👇
