6 Drugstore Concealers That Offer Range For Women of Color

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 way 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

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.

Are You Ready To Give Your Man Multiple Orgasms?

I’m telling you, as someone who has been writing on sex for well over two decades at this point, so long as you’re interested in the topic, you will always — and I do mean ALWAYS — learn something new. Take multiple orgasms, for example. Did you know that there is a difference betweenmultiples and stacked ones? While multiple orgasms are about experiencing more than one climax within a short period of time, a stacked orgasm is like well, it’s a lot like edging. The reason why I say that is because stacked orgasms focus on getting someone to the brink of an orgasm, then pausing so that when they return to that same place of stimulation, their orgasms will be just that much more pleasurable.
