2018 was nothing short of a year for many beauty brands but with the new year ushering in at full speed — one that’s rumoured to feature more fragrances, skincare and cosmetics, 2019 has the potential to be even bigger. While news about new fragrances and skincare products are still slowly seeping in our inboxes, there’s one thing that we can be certain of — the introduction of a ton of new cosmetics, and in this case, concealers.
Naturally, you’d think that concealers make up a small fraction of importance when it comes to your beauty routine. However, at this point in time, you would’ve been bombarded with so many options to choose from, you’d pretty much be confused as to which concealer could match up to your standards.
We rounded up the most exciting new releases. From dewy finishes to concealers that give some coverage, each of these is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser, including some cult ones that are finally arriving on our shores. Find out more about your next go-to concealer from our picks below.

Just hours into 2019 and Rihanna has already dropped another bomb.

The addition comes with 50 different shades to match her ever-growing range of foundation shades.

We all got a lil’ something to cover up! Blemishes, dark circles, bags, and even hangovers, #PROFILTRCONCEALER is #THECURE to hiding it all in a creamy formula that’s longwearing and creaseproof. Who’s ready to get it on January 11?? Available at fentybeauty.com, @Sephora, @harveynichols, and #SephorainJCP!
Sure, Rihanna may have already created her own line of concealers in stick-form, but if you’re the kind of gal who prefers something creamy and thicc, look no further. These concealers pretty much follow through the same shades as the Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Foundation that is already available in 4̶0̶ 50 shades (yes, 50! Fenty Beauty’s also adding 10 more tones to their expanding range of shades). Seems like there’s no stopping Riri this time ’round.
The main question is: Is it really worth the hype? Well, there’s only one way to find out.
TARTE SHAPE TAPE CONCEALER
All hail Tarte’s Shape Tape Concealer! This groundbreaking concealer has earned its title on the lists of celebrities, YouTubers (and everyone else) alike for its superb formula. The highly coveted concealer by Tarte has been gaining a lot of attention over recent months, especially in the U.S.
P.S. Did you know that one tube of Tarte’s Shape Tape Concealer sells every 12 seconds in the U.S? Well, now you do.
Thankfully enough, these Tarte Shape Tape concealers have made it and have officially arrived on our shores, in sunny Singapore. YASSS! These concealers are available in 28 different shades (with five undertones) and are retailing at $42 at Sephora.
Apart from its wide range of shades, instead of using it solely as a concealer, it doubles as a contour and highlighter for your face. Plus, it has a creamy formula so you won’t have to worry about it creasing or flaking.
NARS RADIANT CREAMY CONCEALER
Voted to be the No.1 concealer in the U.S, NARS has just released their new range of Radiant Creamy Concealers and is named the latest must-have to add to your beauty collection.
This concealer is well-loved for its luxurious, silky-like texture as it glides onto the skin seamlessly, providing medium-to-buildable coverage for that natural, radiant finish without creasing.
PIXI CORRECTION CONCENTRATE
Had a long night out partying your time away? Ugh, the struggles of having to deal with a hangover, especially when you have work the next day is indeed a struggle itself. Instead of letting all your co-workers know about your ratchet night out, try concealing any signs of fatigue with this correction concentrate by Pixi! Buff in this silky concealer into your skin and you’ll look as if you’ve had a whole night’s worth of rest! #staywoke
Also, it’s formulated with anti-ageing properties to protect your skin from any signs of ageing.
BECCA LUMINOUS PERFECTING CONCEALER
For a flawless, airbrushed finish, try Becca’s Luminous Perfecting Concealer. With 9 shades to choose from, this luminous concealer works great if you prefer something that’s moisturising for your skin. It’s formulated with light-reflecting technology so it also helps to conceal your dark eye circles, hide blemishes and conceals hyper-pigmentation — talk about the woes of puberty. Eek!
PRETTY VULGAR UNDER COVER CONCEALER
We often find that some concealers actually do weigh down on your skin despite being one that’s of high coverage. For a blemish-free, bright complexion, try Pretty Vulgar’s range of Under Cover Concealer.
TOO FACED BORN THIS WAY SUPER COVERAGE MULTI-USE CONCEALER
Every beauty lover knows that one of the most important factors when it comes to concealers has to be its high coverage. Think about it — if you can’t conceal those dark under eye circles or that scar that’s been there for the longest time, what’s the point of using a concealer? For a flawless, blemish-free complexion, apply the Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Concealer by Too Faced.
When you think of a concealer that offers high coverage, needless to say, you’d first assume that it comes with a thick and heavy consistency. But, that’s not the case with this concealer. For an option that’s light and weightless on the skin, this blendable concealer checks all the boxes if you’re one who has dry, flaky skin problems.
BY TERRY BRIGHTENING CC SERUM (LIMITED EDITION 2018)
Yes, we know that CC serums aren’t exactly everyone’s definition of concealers but before you go ballistic, let us explain. By Terry recently launched their new Brightening CC Serum and well, we have to say that it works as a colour corrector for your skin. To create a soft, glowy look with a flawless-looking base, apply a few pumps of this brightening serum to your beauty regime and you’ll be looking stunning in no time.
With the introduction of all these new concealers, you would’ve already been overloaded with a ton of information (that you may or may not have digested). Nonetheless, the all-time favourite concealer that hasn’t failed us on any occasion, would undoubtedly have to be Clé de Peau Beauté signature concealer.
We’ve been raving it for the longest time and it hasn’t disappointed us one bit. Yes, it might be a little more pricey than the other concealers we’ve mentioned but we’ve got to give it creds for living up to all our expectations. If you haven’t got to know about this holy grail must-have beauty item, then check out the previous post that we blogged about earlier last year.
