Reviewers say that Cle de Peau Beaute Concealer is the Cadillac of concealers. The creamy stick formula is said to have a light, smooth texture and impeccable coverage. There are only four shades, but reviewers say that they match the skin perfectly, looking invisible on the skin. Users praise the formula for concealing even the most severe dark circles without creasing or sinking into fine lines. Several say that the price is a bit hard to swallow, but many point out that a little goes a long way and one stick can last for a very long time. If you prefer a more affordable option, MAC Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer (*Est. $16.50) is a top-rated alternative.
