What is the best concealer for over 45 year olds? Need moisture...

Started 1367363838.26 in Beauty Banter | Last reply 1367502066.727 by Peg55

I bought the It bye bye concealer and I hate it. It is so so dry and showed lines I did not even know I had. It is so dry and chalky. Is there a concealer that spreads easily and covers brown spots, but does not accentuate undereye wrinkles?

I'm another fan of Maybelline's Age Rewind. It's not drying at all. The other one I love that doesn't get a lot of attention is the Cover Girl & Olay Simply Ageless Eye Concealer. Glides on, creamy, great coverage and never chalky. Sometimes when you buy it, the Olay part looks separated from the concealer part, it's perfectly fine. That said, Benefit's new Fake Up Hydrating Concealer is too hydrating for me. Very emollient.

A complete beauty addict who enjoys herself immensely!

Another vote for Maybelline Age Rewind. I wouldn't say it's the perfect concealer, but it's one of the best I've found, especially for the price.

For those of you who love the Maybelline Age Rewind concealer, how do you know which color to chose when you can't try it on first?

This too shall pass.

I purchased Stila's Perfecting Concealer and it is my HG. I am in my early 60's. It does not settle in lines or wrinkles, it's full coverage and it applies easily. My search is over for another concealer. I like the design of the tube and opening because it comes out easily but no waste because the tube part is small. It's $23. You can also wear it as your foundation or add to your foundation. Comes in 8 shades on Stila.com. ULTA, Sephora and Nordstrom also sell it but I believe they do not have all 8 shades.

I really like Josie Maran's concealer a lot! It has 2 colors in each palette. One color is for correcting and does wonders for my dark circles and dark eyelids. I have some fine lines under the eyes at 52 and this concealer doesn't settle or define them at all. I love all of Josies's products, haven't got a bad one yet. Btw, I am medium complexion and I got the light color.

I used Josie's concealer and liked it but Stila blows it out of the park. Just saying.

Physicians Formula "Circle RX" circle control concealer , 9$. Is liquid, dries to a powdery finish within a minute, covers up amazingly dark circles or anything else.

Thanks Katcat, I'd like to sample the Stila. I looked on Josie's site last night and the only color they offer now is the dark concealer shade. {#emotions_dlg.sad} I'm going to call cs and see what's up with that.

Boy, did I make a mistake. Nordstorm has about 15 shades (free shpg). It's best to get a sample or try it out at ULTA or Sephora. You are welcome, mamadukes. Take care.

I think the key is to apply a thick layer of moisturizer under the concealer first. Otherwise, most concealers seem to show lines.

My favorite for years has been Mac Moisturecover. It's a tube with a doe foot and is illuminating and not cakey at all. Suddenly it seemed to irritate my dry eye problem, making my eyes red but that's cuz of medical conditions. I do recommend it still, as I had no problem w/it for years (used in 40s), and if I can clear up the eye problem I may return. Now I'm using Nars which covers well but is drier.

I'm appalled, appalled to find that sanctimony is going on here.

I am 56 and gave up on using concealer. Now I am rotating between It CC cream, Clinique CC cream, and Urban Decay Naked foundation. With either of these products I find concealer is not needed. I make sure I apply moisturizer and apply any of these products and get good coverage. All the concealers I tried made my under eye area dry and cakey.

I took a guess at my Maybelline Age Rewind concealer and it was perfect!I think they have cards out or something like that so that you can try to color match!I am pretty good at colormatching so I got it right the 1st time!!!!!

I don't think it is dry but it is Laura Geller's makeup that comes in the tiny tube. It is a tiny tube but will last for probably 2 years. I put a drop of it on top of one of my jar lids and use it for several times. It doesn't dry out but it covers up all of the red blotches I have. I have Roscea that comes and goes. It used to be so bad the Drs were suspecting that I had Lupus (which I didnt).

Anyway, try that.

Glam O Phauge by Hard Candy. Sold at Walmart for $6.00!! Best one I've found. Runs very light, I usually buy light, but in this Medium light is perfect. Comes in a tube, need just a pinhead drop for under eye, covers birthmarks, tattoos, etc. Doesn't settle into my over 50 yo lines.

I just like to smile! Smiling's my favorite....Buddy the Elf

Maybelline age rewind. I actually just use the brightener one, because I'm so fair/light!

Whichever one you choose, I find the key to lessen's the look of fines lines, is to use eyecream, set then dab your facial primer under your eye's. I find that using primer is key under concealer for lessening fine line's.

I use Maybelline instant age rewind concealer & I also have Studio Gear Hidden Agenda in a pot which has a bit more coverage and it's light & creamy sold at Ulta for 15.00 & like them both.

i agree! I just bought a new one in Fair and also their neutralizer for dark circles; you can put that one on first.

I tried so many and just went back to this! Its even great for those of you who don't need tons of moisture; just a great product at a reasonable price. sometimes the drug store products turn out better
