If you’re on the hunt for an amazing cruelty-free concealer to seal the deal, I’ve got you covered. (See what I did there?) Within this roundup, there is a great mix of products from high end to drug store, sorted by coverage.

As an added bonus, all 16 of these concealers are vegan-friendly! All products mentioned here are from cruelty-free brands, but some are owned by parent companies that aren’t cruelty-free. Those products will be indicated with an asterisk.

Full Coverage

These first eight concealers are ideal for maximum coverage without being too cakey or drying.

  1. TARTE SHAPE TAPE

The much raved about “radiant coverage” concealer almost needs no introduction. It is long-wearing, hydrating and very well-loved. As with most opaque high coverage concealers, a little goes a long way! Read our review here.

  1. NARS SOFT MATTE COMPLETE CONCEALER.

This is a fuller coverage cousin to the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer with a thick creamy consistency and a matte finish. Its formula is oil-free yet non-drying, making it an excellent option for people that struggle with concealer creasing.

  1. OCC SKIN: CONCEAL

The OCC Skin: Conceal is my personal favorite! It is super hydrating and formulated with natural ingredients like cocoa extract, aloe leaf extract, and vitamin E. It is also versatile as it can be used for spot concealing, highlighting and contouring, as well as for a full coverage all over foundation. It also takes me forever to use up the entire product.

  1. KAT VON D LOCK-IT CONCEALER CRÈME

This long-lasting, highly-pigmented concealer has an impressive shade range, including a pure white shade, perfect for highlighting the fairest skin tones! It also doubles as an eye shadow primer.

  1. PHYSICIAN’S FORMULA CONCEAL RX

This is a great high coverage concealer you can get from the drugstore! It is also available in color correcting shades. However, the shade range is fairly limited and lacks options for darker skin tones.

  1. NARS RADIANT CREAMY CONCEALER

A cult classic, the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer offers buildable coverage with a very creamy formula. It starts off “radiant” but does dry down to a more matte finish, without clinging to dry patches.

  1. MARC JACOBS RE (MARC) ABLE FULL COVER CONCEALER

This Marc Jacobs concealer has a creamy texture similar to that of the NARS Soft Matte concealer. It is also infused with antiaging and nourishing ingredients, which makes it great for keeping skin hydrated.

  1. WET N WILD PHOTO FOCUS CONCEALER

The formula of this concealer is like a perfect marriage of the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer and Tarte Shape Tape, making it an absolute STEALS at under $4! This being said, Wet N Wild could definitely benefit from widening the shade range on both ends of the spectrum.

  1. SHEA MOISTURE CRÈME CONCEALER

This is a creamy lightweight concealer designed primarily for use in the under eye area, but it works for spot concealing as well. It is formulated to set quickly so it won’t move around throughout the day.

  1. PACIFICA TRANSCENDENT CONCENTRATED CONCEALER

This is another great concealer option for the under eye area. It has a nice creamy buildable formula, but the shade range is pretty limited and lacks options for darker skin tones.

  1. CARGO HD PICTURE PERFECT CONCEALER

The Cargo concealer is said to be a “concealer and wrinkle eliminator in one”, and some people have described it as “liquid botox”. While I’m not sure if I would go that far, it is a great option to double as a concealer and primer.

  1. 100% PURE 2ND SKIN CONCEALER

Best vegan concealer  from 100% Pure is formulated with natural ingredients, including vegan olive-based squalane which gives it a hydrating finish. This is a great option if you are looking for a natural and non-toxic concealer!

  1. COVER FX CREAM CONCEALER

Although it is a medium coverage concealer, it can definitely be built up to full coverage where desired. The texture of this one makes it perfect for covering acne, though it can crease when used under the eyes.

  1. NYX HD PHOTO CONCEALER

This is another one of my favorites. It reminds me of a less full coverage version of the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, and the price makes it pretty hard to beat! It comes in a great shade range, including options for color correcting.

  1. URBAN DECAY NAKED SKIN WEIGHTLESS COMPLETE COVERAGE CONCEALER

The Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer is another cult favorite which provides medium coverage. It’s creamy, luminous and easy to blend, ideal for using under the eyes. It isn’t ideal for covering blemishes, due to its coverage and luminous finish.

October 3 is National Boyfriend Day. In case you’re feigning exacerbation, all of a sudden inclination sickened, and pondering what this world has come to and why, you are not the only one. Are connections not being praised enough on Instagram and Facebook? Are men seeing someone not given enough consideration? Do we truly require one more day to make single individuals feel awful about themselves? Have we not been esteeming connections enough as a general public?

National Girlfriends Day, additionally a made up occasion, is really multi day for closest companions to praise their fellowships, not to respect ladies who are coupled up. So there’s no comparable phony occasion for ladies seeing someone. So truly, for what reason do we require National Bf Day?

Certainly, it’s a good for nothing occasion yet its reality reflects the manner in which we organize connections as a general public. We treat single individuals — single ladies, particularly — as if they’re fragmented, desolate, and as if there’s a major issue with them. Not exclusively do we neglect to recognize the mental and physical advantages that originate from being single, we tend to slight the way that for some, individuals, being single is an existence decision — and one they’re glad about.

Our way of life overlooks being single might be precisely what a few people require. “You can realize your identity as an individual, and not as a team [when you’re single],” analyst Dr. Nikki Martinez tells Bustle. “This is a vital separation. Our identity alone, as a one of a kind individual all alone, is frequently altogether different than what we progress toward becoming, or what we enable ourselves to be seeing someone. This is your opportunity to get a firm feeling of self, and to guarantee yourself to always remember it, or let go of it, regardless of your identity or are not with.”

It’s imperative to begin recognizing that there’s not only one street to bliss. “In case you’re cheerful, at that point there’s no motivation to drive yourself to be seeing someone since society expects it,” Kali Rogers, Founder of Blush Online Life Coaching, tells Bustle. “Bliss is certifiably not a one size fits all, and must be estimated by the individual encountering it. So if being single makes you cheerful, remain single! It’s as simple as that.”

I as of late got into a relationship following five long periods of being single, and keeping in mind that I’m content with my sweetheart, I can’t state that my life is that very different at this point. Be that as it may, I’ve unquestionably observed the manner in which individuals have been treating me distinctively since we began dating — as though, FINALLY, I’ve achieved this significant lifetime objective. Companions say, OMG well done! Let me know everything. Relatives appear to be more satisfied with you, as though you’ve gotten everything in order the majority of the sudden. Colleagues who haven’t seen you in quite a while reveal to you how cheerful they are for you. I know they’re all benevolent, yet to act like I discovered this missing piece I had been scanning for my entire life is simply false — and really hostile. I don’t characterize myself by my relationship status, so for what reason do individuals treat each other contrastingly as a result of it?
