The lowdown

The hydrating formula: Our members loved that the hydrating concealer didn’t sink into any fine lines or dry out through the day, meaning it didn’t accentuate tired eyes or blemishes. 

Perfect for no-makeup makeup: A number of our members mentioned this concealer has become their go-to for no-makeup makeup days, due to the lightweight natural finish that blends seamlessly into their skin.

The affordable price point: Our reviewers really loved the uber low price point of this concealer as well as the fact it’s stocked in supermarkets, making repurchase a breeze. Simply add to cart on your next weekly shop – sorted.

The verdict

“I've tried it on some recent hotter days and it still seems to last. I get quite dark circles and some fine lines under my eyes but this does a great job of blending and hydrating that area without accentuating the lines. It also has good coverage for blemishes and scars. I was previously using Tarte 'Shape Tape' but I would say that this Covergirl concealer is as good and for a better price. I especially love that the brand has gone cruelty-free and I'd say this will be my new go to for under eyes.”

“The packaging is cute and lightweight, with a curved doe-foot applicator that picks up the perfect amount of concealer from the tube. The shade 530 works well on blemishes, but I would prefer something slightly more pale for under the eyes. In saying that, I prefer how this covers my eye bags and it doesn’t crease on me. It leaves a natural finish on the skin and blends in seamlessly. It’s definitely one that I am now reaching for on a daily basis as it’s right up my lightweight, no makeup makeup street.”

“I’ve always been a big fan of hydrating products, and this concealer did not disappoint! It is long lasting, has a sheer to medium coverage and definitely feels hydrating. The concealer doesn't crease or dry out under my eyes which is something concealers usually do. My only issue is I had to use a fair bit of the product to give me a medium coverage under my eyes to cover my dark circles. But it is perfect for those no makeup - makeup days.”
