For coverage that keeps you shine-free.

by Nicole M. Arcano | Jan 3, 2019

No one deserves to have their concealer fade without warning, but that's sadly the reality for those with oily skin. That's why for hiding dark circles, acne scars, or any unsightly part of your skin, always consider what will work on your tricky skin type.

Best Concealers for Oily Skin

Generally, products that are marked as matte and longwearing would seem like a good fit, but it could take some trial and error before you find the one that suits your needs. Luckily, we've done all the trying for you, and below, we round up 15 of the best concealers for giving slick skin extra coverage—without the greasy after-feel, of course. Ready to shop? Keep scrolling!

1. MAC Studio Finish SPF 35

High coverage and SPF? It seems to good to be true, but this concealer really does have both. Meaning, you can camouflage dark spots and active breakouts while protecting it from the sun. This also sets to a matte finish, so you won't have to worry about it rubbing off after setting it with powder.

2. Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Concealer

3. NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer

Most concealers tend to slide off raised blemishes quite easily, but the formula in this NARS pot has a dry (but not drying) consistency that'll stick and stay where it's applied. That said, perhaps its best feature is it that it has a flat finish, so your blemishes won't reflect light and attract more attention.

4. Revlon Photoready Concealer

This stick is the perfect blend of creamy and dry so it can smooth over imperfections without caking up. In fact, you can use it over both dark circles and acne given its buildable coverage and blurring finish.

5. Smashbox Studio Skin Flawless 24-Hour Concealer

Although a waterproof concealer does come in handy at the beach or a wedding (tears can smear makeup, FYI), those with oily skin need that kind of staying power on a daily basis. This one from Smashbox has a flexible doe-foot wand for all-over use and the liquid feels lightweight enough to use as a cream contour or highlight.

6. Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Crème

If full, opaque coverage is your priority with your concealers, then this is the one for the job. Because aside from being matte and budgeproof, the Lock-It Crème has the ability to hide pigmentation as dark as tattoos.

7. Clio Kill Cover Pro Artist Liquid Concealer

Clio's entire Kill Cover line has a big following in Korea, but this liquid concealer stands out with its non-cakey finish even those with non-oily skin will like. If you do struggle with shine, don't worry—this will stay on throughout an entire work day and fade gracefully from there.

8. Ellana Loose Mineral Concealer and Foundation

Believe it or not, you can conceal your skin using powder. For one, this loose powder from local mineral makeup brand Ellana is known for having high coverage that isn't harsh on the skin (it's talc-free!). To cover with it, dab a generous amount of the powder on the spot with a brush, let it "bake" for a few minutes, and then lightly dust off the excess.

Have a full day ahead? Get a concealer that'll keep flaws camouflaged during those long hours like Urban Decay's All Nighter, which offers creaseless coverage that also controls shine on your problem areas. The slim tube it comes in is the perfect size for traveling and popping into your makeup bag for skin emergencies.

10. The Saem Cover Perfection Tip Concealer

The beauty of this concealer is that despite its coverage, it's creamy and blendable enough to look practically invislbe on the skin after blending. Although long-lasting on its own, it adheres well on oily complexions when set with powder.

11. The Face Shop Concealer Dual Veil

If you have oily skin but dry undereyes, this dual-ended product has two types of concealers for your covering needs. On one end is the concealer stick, which color-corrects dark circles without drying out the area. Meanwhile, the liquid concealer end conceals face discoloration and sets into a flattering semi-matte finish.

12. Benefit Boi-ing Industrial Strength Concealer

This product was created for heavy-duty concealing, and it definitely delivers on its promise. The bouncy cream formula works on all kinds of skin discoloration, but it eventually sets with a matte finish. Adjust the coverage by warming it up with your fingers (light-medium coverage) or patting it on using a brush (full coverage).
