Full coverage concealer for hyperpigmentation

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I just got my skin under control and am now dealing with the hyperpigmented spots left behind. I want to stay away from a full face of foundation to give my skin a break, but I'm too self-conscious to go with a naked face.

As a brown skinned girl, I get very dark spots that take a long time to fade, and there are a lot of them right now. I'm using AHA's to try and speed the process up and SPF to not make them worse, but in the meantime I want something to spot conceal with.

What have you guys had the best experience with to cover hyperpigmentation? I'm torn between Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer and MAC Studio Finish. Both have good things going for them: Bobbi Brown with the vitamin A which is good for cell turnover, and MAC with the SPF 35 to protect the spots from darkening. Any other good options you can give me?

mufe full cover, cover FX concealer or cream foundation, and amazing cosmetics are all my suggestions

I'd recommend MAC Studio Finish or MUFE Full Cover (if you can find your shade, it has a more limited shade range). I am not familiar with the Bobbi brown creamy concealer.

dermablend.


also, clarins has a skincare line called "bright plus" that evens out the skin tone. it works on only the spots that are darker. it's great stuff

Dermablend as well. I've seen people work wonders with it.

Re: Full coverage concealer for hyperpigmentation

I have both the Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer as well as Studio Finish, and can tell you that the Studio Finish is definitely higher coverage and longer lasting. The Creamy Concealer is nice, but the consistency is, well, creamy (!), so it tends to wear off more quickly on me. MAC Studio Sculpt is another nice option for high coverage, this is what I tend to use day to day to cover my pigmented spots (I currently have a few small scars that need good cover). I've not tried Dermablend so can't compare.

Re: Full coverage concealer for hyperpigmentation

Thanks for the suggestions, girls. Really appreciate it. I found myself in the mall the other day, so I went ahead and picked up a MAC Studio Finish concealer. It works alright, doesn't conceal the really dark brown spots, but I guess I can live with that while they fade.

LC, I'll have to look into that skincare line, thanks.

I really have to second cover fx even though you've chosen the mac one. I can cover anything with it. Tricky to apply at first but it's great.

I've been in your situation and used MAC studio finish to conceal. It took almost a year for everything to fade completely, but by then I'd become a concealer master, lol. For those extra dark spots, you may want to put a thin layer of corrector (Bobbi Brown has some good ones, so does MAC Pro) down and put the concealer on top, and then set with powder. That should camouflage the spots completely while you wait.

Good luck

Oooh, I have a salmon/orange corrector in my Pixi Eye Bright wheel. I'm going to try that. Thanks!

I really want to try Dermablend, but they don't have a counter anywhere in my town. Ordering online would be hit-and-miss, since I have no way of knowing what my shade would be.

I heard great things about Kevyn aucoin concealer on youtube. It's expensive but I am going to try it.

Re: Full coverage concealer for hyperpigmentation

I have hyper pigmentation to from adult acne. I love Mac Stuido Finish in the little pot. I also like the Coastal Scents concealer palettes, they come in a palette of 10 but you can also get them off of Ebay. Both concealers are good enough for me to go out with just concealer and not foundation.

Has anyone tried the Kat von D tattoo concealer? I got a sample in a swap and am really liking it.
