6 Drugstore Concealers That Offer Range For Women of Color

Beauty & Fashion

Finding the perfect drugstore concealer used to be a major challenge for me, so much so that I gave up on drugstore brands and made Nordstrom my destination for all of my beauty purchases. Since my skin tone is not only dark (while not the darkest on the spectrum), but has a yellow undertone, finding a product that didn't leave me ashy and red felt impossible.

Before diversity and inclusion became buzzwords in the beauty industry, many brands weren't making space for us on the shelves of our local drugstores. We're in a new day and age in the beauty world (though there is still a ways to go) where brands are making concealer options for us that speak to the nuances of our skin tones.

Here are six drugstore concealer options that offer a range of shades for us brown beauties:

ColourPop No Filter Matte Concealer

ColourPop Cosmetics Instagram

Makeup lovers everywhere have probably found a ColourPop lip color or eye shadow they can't live without — their concealer seems to be no exception. With a range of thirty shades and a $6 price tag, this matte concealer will be a staple in your makeup bag.

Black Radiance Perfect Blend Concealer

I have been using this concealer since I was a teenager. One of my favorite things about the foundation-concealer duo is that I have options. I use this to cover dark spots hormonal pimples leave and to add a natural contour to my cheekbones.

L.A. GIRL HD Pro Concealer

Color correcting is the name of the game with budget-friendly concealer. Beauty bloggers often shout this product out during their tutorials, and thanks to its range of shades and color correction options, you'll get the flawless coverage you're looking for without a high dollar price tag.

Black Opal EVEN TRUE Brightening Concealer

If you're looking for an under eye concealer, this medium to full coverage concealer gives you the coverage you need without the creasing. The packaging also comes with a roller ball that some users seem to like while others find it gets in the way, but we'll let you decide for yourselves.

IMAN Second to None Stick Foundation

IMAN's foundation stick is another go-to product I have used off and on since my teenage years. It's labeled as a foundation, but I use it as a concealer to cover dark circles, as a spot treatment for dark spots, and as a contour stick.

Maybelline New York Fit Me Concealer

Maybelline recently added four new concealer colors: honey, caramel, tan, and hazelnut to their Fit Me options. Since there are only twelve shades, you may not be able to find your perfect match, but this non-comedogenic, fragrance-free option might be worth a shot.

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
