8 Best Concealers for Melasma Hyperpigmentation

Best Concealer for Melasma

If you are looking for the best concealer to cover Melasma, you are in the right place!

Finding a concealer to hide hyper-pigmentation and dark spots caused by Melasma can be a tedious task. The trial and error process of finding the right coverage, the right color and one that stays on long enough is darn right expensive! Below I’ve made a list of the top 8 concealers loved by women with Melasma.

1.Dermablend by Vichy Quick Fix Concealer

Dermablend Quick Fix concealer is one of the most recommended concealers for melasma. As you can see in the review below, it does a great job at covering hyper-pigmentation on the face.

2. Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Flawless Wear Concealer

The Estee Lauder Doubler Wear line of cosmetics is a fan favorite amongst women with melasma. The Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation is also on our list of best foundations for Melasma..and the concealer is just as good! If you are looking for the best coverage, pair those two products for the perfect application.

3. Benefit Erase Paste

Benefit Erase Paste is another favorite amongst melasma sufferers due to it’s peachy color. The peachiness does a great job at hiding the pigmentation caused by melasma on the mustache, cheek and forehead area. This concealer can be applied with a brush or your fingertip.

4. Revlon Colorstay Concealer Stick

At under $10, this is a great low-cost option for covering your melasma. The Revlon Colorstay concealer stick is great for spot treating the melasma blotches on your face.

5. Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer

The Creamy Concealer from Bobbi Brown is great because it comes in a variety of shades which some of the other concealers do not. You can easily visit your local makeup counter and find the perfect shade to match your skin.

6. Kat Von D Tattoo Lock-It Concealer

If it’s good enough to cover know it’s going to be good enough to cover your melasma. Kat Von D’s Tattoo Lock-It concealer is a favorite because of it’s full coverage and also that it’s easily applied with your fingertips or a brush.

7. Hard Candy Glamoflauge

If you are looking for a lower cost option for concealers…Hard Candy’s Glamoflauge is a great bet! It gives great coverage and lasts a while. The nice thing is that you can pick it up online or at Walmart for under $10.00. It also comes with a concealer pencil which you can use to get into the tight spots that your fingertip may not be able to get into.

8. Pixi Color Concentrate

As I’ve mentioned before, the Pixi Color Concentrate is my absolute favorite concealer and I use it everyday. The peachy color of this concealer does a great job at hiding the gray-ish tone of my melasma. I apply it to my upper lip melasma mustache using a small brush (like this one) and then cover with my favorite foundation for melasma.


Disclaimer: I am not a doctor :) I'm just a girl who suffers from melasma and I'm on a quest to find out as much information about the disorder as I can and hopefully rid myself of Melasma once and for all.

    My melasma’s sooo dark already this summer, despite me religiously wearing spf 50+ and a hat 🙁 I’ve had to double up on my foundation, I use Revlon Colorstay as a base (it’s nice and light with good coverage), then on top I apply Vichy dermablend to the areas that need it most. For the first time ever a few people have commented on how good my skin looks lol ;D Both these foundations have spf in them too. The overall finish isn’t too cakey and stats on all day! X
