If you, like us, covet all things Fenty Beauty, then you’re probably already buzzing about the brand new concealer they dropped to ring in 2019. Rihanna touts it as “the cure” to dark circles, breakouts, and other glow-busting remnants of all our holiday partying. What a way to say hey to the new year, right? According to the brand’s website, the Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer is “a creamy, longwear, creaseproof liquid concealer that delivers light-as-air, medium to full coverage in a groundbreaking range of 50 easy-to-shop soft matte shades.” At BeautyMNL, we’re big fans of Riri and we sincerely believe that everything she touches turns to Killawatt gold. To say we’d love to have her beauty brainchild in our assortment is an understatement. But until we’re able to swipe ‘em, we’ll be playing around with all our favorite alternatives. Below, we picked out 5 concealers we’re keeping in our makeup bags—we’d love these even if we weren’t waiting on Fenty!


1. Revlon ColorStay Concealer, P625

Revlon’s signature concealer may not be as high coverage as its Fenty counterpart claims to be, but it sure is long-lasting! As an unexpected bonus, it also wears beautifully over time, settling into a skin-like finish that’s virtually undetectable. 2. Wet n’ Wild PhotoFocus Concealer, P399

Now, this drugstore favorite is budge-proof and quick to set with crazy coverage. Its area of expertise? Dark circles! It makes ‘em instantly disappear like you sleep like a baby every night. Those with dry skin may want to steer clear, though, as it can emphasize dry patches when mishandled. 3. L’Oreal True Match The One Liquid Concealer, P245 (limited time only)

A go-to among the no-makeup makeup crowd, L’Oreal’s ultra blendable concealer comes in an impressive range of shades. It may not break 50 like Fenty, but morenas, chinitas, and everyone in between have plenty to work with here, too. And just like its foundie sister, it’s also comfortably lightweight enough for everyday. 4. L.A. Girl PRO Conceal, P349

Sure, this beauty guru top shelf-er doesn’t come with a doe-foot applicator, but its squeezable, brush-tip tube packaging makes it just as handy and easy to use. Simply apply the product straight out of the package, blend, and you’ll be looking at a flawless, crease-resistant base in no time. 5. Pink Sugar Our Lil’ Secret Concealer With Applicator, P349

With its medium to full coverage and formula that blends like a dream, this local find already does plenty as makeup. The fact that it’s also formulated with skin-loving ingredients like cucumber and chamomile is just the cherry on top of this beloved instant fix.
