Ever feel like you could use a little…. help… to combat that tired, worn-out, not-so-flawless look we sometimes wake up to?
Dark circles. Puffiness. Fine lines.
Blemishes. Uneven skintone. Pigmentation.
Say no more.
I know I’m not the only one.
Enter…(yes, men) the unisexxxy appeal of women’s concealer.
FOR THE BIG SPENDER: YSL Anti-Cernes Multi-Action Concealer ($37)
The YSL beauty line parallels the brand’s success and appeal in fashion and fragrance. I’m a big fan of this prestige concealer.
Offered in three shades, that work well with a range of complexions, it’s creamy, hydrating, blends and sets well. Nothing more to ask for.
FOR THE SELF-INVESTOR: NARS concealer ($24)
Had to try it after reading about it. And fell in love. Great reco, Trish!
Offered in 10 shades, I highly recommend this for anyone, especially if you’re concerned with the blending process. Match your skin tone perfectly first, then gently pat onto skin with your finger. No brush required. Ultra-light and undetectable.
FOR THE SAVVY SHOPPER: Neutrogena Healthy Skin Smoothing Stick ($6.99)
Available at most drugstores, it’s a safe and affordable go-to and great on the run!
Dermatologist-developed and approved for all skin types, this budget-friendly stick is formulated with pro-retinol and vitamins B5 & E to help condition while concealing.
As much as we want to believe it, sometimes we just don’t wake up looking like ‘dissss. Nothing wrong with a little facial enhancement #IMHO– when needed.

Question, Paul – why do you prefer cream/stick concealers to liquid? For sure I thought YSL Touche Eclat would be on this list. It’s a staple for me when I do men’s grooming to subtly brighten the under-eye.
Also, I think it’s important to note that men’s skin is thicker than women’s and often rougher, and proper skin prep prior to any makeup application is essential for the product to fuse with skin making the coverage “invisible.” Otherwise the product may sit on skin, looking obvious (particularly if the shade is not an exact perfect match).
Of course as someone who pays quite a bit of attention to skincare, I am sure your concealer always looks #flawless.
Yes, I agree with you on a few points. First, regarding your question, I suggested these three cream/stick concealers, as I feel their application is easier, and their range more versatile, at least for the average user.
Nars, to me is the safest route regardless of experience, especially because as you mention you want the ‘coverage to be “invisible.”
Funny you mention YSL Touche Eclat, I LIVE for it! In my opinion, it’s the best for under-eye, and though I could have covered it in this post, I will be highlighting it (no pun intended) in an upcoming one.
