When I first embarked on my natural beauty journey and made the decision to switch all of my products over to only non-toxic options, one of the main products I was the pickiest about replacing was my concealer. Between chronic under eye dark circles and allergy-induced redness around my nose, concealer is something I have always relied on.
I can and often do go without foundation but I love to have a concealer with me just to cover up the basics: darkness, redness and the occasional breakout. My staples used to be MAC Pro-Longwear and Benefit Bo-ing concealers. They were what I used on a daily basis and they worked at covering up what I needed to so I was very skeptical about finding a decent natural alternative to them. I decided that I would try out as many all-natural concealers as I could get my hands on (and afford) in order to find the best clean replacements.
I can honestly say that I have found absolutely fantastic concealers that do the job and don’t leave me ever missing my old chemical-filled choices anymore! I narrowed my picks down to four staples of mine and will give a quick review of each so you can decide which would suit you best if you are looking for a good natural concealer!
1.) RMS Beauty “Un” Cover-Up -
“Formulated to reveal and enhance healthier looking skin…not just cover it up. Completely lightweight and hydrating to the skin, the ‘un’cover-up will reveal more youthful and radiant skin. Minimizes the appearance of pores and rejuvenates the skin.”
I use the shade “11″. I love this product and enjoy using it as an all-over foundation as well as a concealer. The only complaint I have ever had with this product is that it is a tad bit too yellow for me. I have very fair skin and sometimes when a concealer is too pink or too yellow it comes off as a little dark on my skin tone. But if you are a fair-skinned girl like me you will be excited to hear that RMS is coming out with an even lighter shade soon! The main ingredient in this concealer is organic coconut oil. For me I find it helps to moisturize my skin and gives a beautiful and natural glow to the face. The coconut oil has never made me break out, if anything it seems to help with breakouts which I think is due to the anti-bacterial properties found in coconut oil. This product is a must-have for me and one that I will always recommend to everyone.
“sukicolor is active skincare meets pure mineral color. this super light concealer begins with sukiface balancing day lotion plus 100% pure mineral pigment & adds advanced actives – caffeine for anti-puffiness, redness & circles & salicylic acid for reducing bumps & swelling. whipped matte formula creates a line-free look, providing flawless coverage without a greasy feel.”
I use the shade “Buttercream”. This concealer is my latest purchase and discovery. I love Suki’s entire skincare line and am very impressed with the sukicolor line as well. The tinted moisturizer is one of my favorite products so I was tempted to try out this concealer. Firstly the packaging is wonderful. It comes in an easy to carry and portable compact with a mirror (love that!). The product itself is very creamy and has an almost mousse-like texture. When applied to the skin with fingers, it blends beautifully and when set with a light powder, lasts all day with little to no creasing. It also contains salicylic acid which is great for fighting bacteria so it is ideal for applying on blemishes. I also love that this contains caffeine which is wonderful for those with puffiness!
“Duo-Phase Concealer is a nourishing spot treatment that provides opaque coverage to any discoloration, including acne, age spots, and dark circles. This lightweight formula offers amazing coverage and blendability in any area it’s applied. This product has the perfect slip that melts into your skin and has the capability to adjust to your skintone.”
This was the first all-natural concealer that made me believe in natural concealers altogether! I truly fell in love with this product immediately after using it. It offers the highest amount of coverage of any other natural concealer I have used thus far. If you are looking to really cover up something, this is your best bet and definitely the best at covering my under eye circles! It doubles as both a foundation and concealer. This concealer also lasts all day and has never once creased on me.
4.) MyChelle Concealer -
“This heavier coverage concealer makes flawless skin a simple reality. Its convenient compact design and creamy, non-powder consistency ensure an easily accessible, on-the-go spot treatment that blends perfectly with your skin’s changing needs. Therapeutic ingredients such as grape seed oil and passionfruit extract boost its effectiveness by protecting and nourishing the skin.”
I use the shade “Creme”. Though described as “heavier coverage”, I find this concealer to be extremely natural looking and is one I would recommend to those who are looking for a lighter coverage. With that said, this concealer is very buildable and layers well over other concealers. This is probably my favorite concealer out of the bunch for specifically brightening my under eye area. It also smells delicious. Like fresh fruit. It’s super convenient for travel and carrying around in your purse. It is my favorite for on the go touch-ups.
RMS Beauty “Un” Cover-Up is my favorite all-around base product for coverage and hydration.
SukiColor Correct Coverage is my favorite blemish and redness treating concealer.
Christopher Drummond Duo-Phase is my favorite higher-coverage concealer.
MyChelle Concealer is my favorite for brightening and touch-ups.
