I gotta say, the best feeling in the world is when my concealer melts and slips into every crease and crevice of my face by noon. Oh, I also hate ice cream and puppies and fun.
But if you're into that whole long-lasting-makeup thing, you'll be pleased to know that I rounded up the absolute best drugstore concealers that actually stay put from the moment you blend them on. And that's a good thing, because you're about to need one for your sweaty happy dance.
Black Radiance Concealer Stick, $3
Usually, concealers and under-eyes don't mix, thanks to the zillions of fine lines that suddenly appear the second you start applying. But this creamy, castor oil–based stick glides over dark circles without caking into creases, and stays semi-matte all day long.
NYX Gotcha Covered Concealer, $6
Whether you're competing in the next Pipeline Bodysurfing Classic, or just planning to exist as a human in the spring humidity, you can rest assured this waterproof, high-coverage concealer won't melt off your face. And if the word "waterproof" strikes fear into your dry-skinned heart, don't worry—the formula is also loaded with moisturizing coconut oil to keep you looking dewy.
Iman Second to None Cover Cream, $11
Use a damp makeup sponge to blend a thin layer of this green tea–based concealer under your eyes, or grab a skinny concealer brush to home in on bumps and red marks. Either way, the long-wear formula doesn't budge once it sets, so you can go as sheer—or as heavy—as you want.
CoverGirl Outlast All Day Concealer, $6
Oily skin, meet your new BFF. This drugstore favorite is velvety and blendable, so it won't feel caked on when you first apply it, and the added pinch of talc in the formula helps it stay matte throughout the day, meaning it won't slip down your face by lunch.
L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Concealer, $10
The 16-hour claim on the tube isn't just lip service—the lightweight concealer seriously stays put from morning 'til night. Plus, its silicone base makes the formula dewy enough to blend over the driest of skin types.
Physicians Formula #InstaReady Concealer, $9
One pump (all you need) of this matte, full-coverage concealer keeps blotchiness, zits, and acne scars covered all day, while the included baby sponge helps blend away any excess around your eyes and nose.
