Bags belong at the department store, NOT under your eyes.

Your best defense against dark circles (outside of sunglasses) is undereye concealers, especially as we try to cover those dark, bluish-purple signs of fatigue, aging, or simply genetics.

Since many of us women (and men!) experience the fight against dark undereye circles, we rounded up some of the Hip2Save teams favorite concealers along with input from the Hip2Save community to list a few of the best options out there.

Check out this list of our favorite undereye concealers:


1.) IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye

best undereye concealer — it cosmetics bye bye undereye

Available at Ulta | $24

This concealer packs a punch of pigment along with skin-loving ingredients like hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, vitamins, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants. It covers the deepest dark circles while improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles at the same time! No wonder why this concealer has such great results — it was developed alongside plastic surgeons!

“The small tubes which are only .11oz at $10 seem spendy, but a little goes a long way with it! I probably never would have bought it because of the size and price, but I got one in my Ipsy bag and discovered how long the tube lasts!” – Nicole


“I have very deep, very black/purple under eyes that get very oily. I use a primer and [Bye Bye Undereye] in my makeup regime” – Christine


2.) Estée Lauder Double Wear Concealer

best undereye concealer — estee lauder double wear concealer

Available at Macy’s | $28

This long lasting, non-drying formula gives the look of flawless skin all day long — through water, perspiration, and humidity! It’s medium coverage but buildable for days when you really need to hide the fact that you only got 5 hours of sleep.

“Estée Lauder Double Wear Concealer covers dark circles without caking and settling in fine lines. YSL Touche Eclat radiant touch concealer brightens around the eye. I use both, Estée Lauder first and then YSL on top. I have dark circles and this combo covers and brightens them up perfectly.” – Elaine


3.) Makeup Forever Full Cover Concealer

Available at Sephora | $34

This is not your mother’s concealer… this is extreme! Meant to cover up major imperfections like scars, hyperpigmentation, major discoloration, and burns, this water-proof, full coverage formula contains a high concentration of pigments with serious staying power. It’s so effective, it can even cover tattoos!


4.) YSL Touche Eclat Radiance Perfecting Pen

Available at Sephora | $38

Don’t just conceal your dark circles… brighten them! With this lightweight concealer (in a super easy applicator) you can boost the luminosity of your undereyes. Don’t worry, it’s not full of sparkles or glitter — it has ultra fine micro-pearls along with hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, and antioxidants to fight dullness and signs of fatigue. Still not convinced? One of these award-winning concealer pens is sold every ten seconds!


5.) Tarte Shape Tape

best undereye concealers — tarte shape tape

Available at Ulta | $27

This cult-classic contour concealer (say that 5 times fast) can do just about anything! In addition to masking dark circles, acne, and redness, it works as a contouring stick to highlight and sculpt when used with lighter or darker shades. Its nutrient-rich formula is powered by Amazonian clay along with mango seed and shea butters to promote skin elasticity and illumination. It’s also cruelty free, gluten free, and vegan!

“I love Shape Tape! But be sure you blend in the Shape Tape very well or it will end up looking uneven.”  — Angela at Hip2Save


6.) BeautyCounter Touchup Concealer Pen

best undereye concealer — beautycounter concealer pen

Available at BeautyCounter | $33

Similar to YSL Touche Eclat (they actually look identical), this concealer comes in a click-pen design with a brush applicator allowing the product to glide on with ease. The buildable medium-coverage formula also contains knotgrass extract which reduces the appearance of fine lines and photoaging, making skin look brighter, firmer, and flawless.


7.) Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer

Available at Ulta | $29

If you’re looking for something a little more lightweight, this concealer is for you. Like the name implies, this formula melds like a second skin and can be layered to build fuller coverage. It also has nutrient-rich ingredients like anti-wrinkle peptides for elasticity, Japanese green tea for wrinkle reduction, Litchiderm for hydration, and sodium hyaluronate for moisture retention.

“Blends in a snap!” — Cass at Hip2Save


“It blends soooo well and has great coverage. It doesn’t feel/look like I’m wearing makeup” — Andrea at Hip2Save


8.) Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer

best undereye concealer — nars radiant creamy concealer

Available at Sephora | $30

Talk about a fan favorite! This creamy concealer has a pretty big following, whether its from the 9K reviews or the 590k loves on Sephora’s website! And understandably so — it’s available in a whopping 22 shades with a multi-action formula to mask imperfections, blur fine lines and wrinkles, and even out complexion. The botanical blend also hydrates, firms, reduces redness, and strengthens the skin barrier to retain moisture.

Need more proof of its effectiveness? In a clinical independent study, 93% felt the product effectively conceal dark spots, blemishes, and dark under eye circles, and 89% felt the product left their skin looking firmer!

9.) NYX HD Studio Concealer

best undereye concealers — nyx hd studio photogenic concealer

Available at Target | starts at $3.50

This concealer is my absolute favorite, so much so that I wear it every day! It has a pretty light consistency so it blends like a dream to provide medium coverage, though it is buildable should you need more. It also has a decent shade range along with color correcting options like lavender for sallow skin, green to neutralize redness, and yellow for purple/blue undereye circles.


10.) Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser

best undereye concealers — maybelline age rewind eraser

Available at Walmart | $8

Erase away dark circles, fine lines, and puffiness with this super concentrated formula made with goji berry and haloxyl. As if that wasn’t enough, the applicator on this concealer makes it so worth trying! It’s super soft and helps distribute the product easily and evenly, so all that’s required is a few taps with your fingers to blend for medium coverage.

It has great coverage while still being lightweight… I don’t want anything that sinks into my wrinkles, I’m not in my 20’s (or even my 30’s) anymore!” – Jennifer
