Forget Trial and Error: These Are the 10 Best Concealers for Dark Skin
We can all agree: Beauty products are the funnest. But color-matching products? Not so much. It’s hard enough testing all the Sephora samples and walking around with ghost eyes—before spending your mortgage on makeup you’ve realized you’ll never use. That’s where Rank & Style comes in. It takes reviews, buzz and best sellers into account when coming up with its foolproof lists. So keep this one handy: the internet’s top ten concealers for dark skin.
#1: Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer
Number of available shades: 16. Amount of reviews on Sephora: 7,711. And "loves": 470,000. Fair to say that this one lives up to the hype.
#2: Lancôme Effacernes Waterproof Protective Under-eye Concealer
One reviewer puts it best: "This is perfect for my dark skin! Buildable coverage that doesn’t settle into fine lines as much as other concealers I’ve used."

#9: Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer
Urban Decay is known for its rich range of makeup colors, so it only makes sense that it would put out 14 shades of concealer. But the coolest part is that it's infused with Litchiderm, which uses the lychee fruit to hydrate.
