For the past two or so years, I have been on the hunt for my perfect concealer. As someone who struggles with acne, I wanted to find a product that covered anything and everything and made me feel confident and like my skin was good, even though it is far from flawless. I have tried no less than twenty different concealers, everything from Benefit Boing to NYC Cover Stick, high end to low end, stick to cream. Nothing was really working for me.
That was until a few months ago. I was just watching through my usual subscriptions when I saw a favorites video from Ingrid, MissGlamorazzi, on YouTube that mentioned the Physician’s Formula Conceal RX. I had tried a few Physician’s Formula products, eye shadows and eyeliners, but had never ventured out into their line of face products. But Ingrid spoke so highly of the product. I was about to go to Sephora and shell out $36 for the Makeup Forever Full-Cover Concealer, when low and behold this product is mentioned.
Claim: “Concentrated concealer expertly covers such skin imperfections as blemishes, scars, birthmarks, bruises and more. Non-oily, non-drying Conceal RX by Physicians Formula provides full, comfortable coverage while allowing skin to breathe. Lasts up to 12 hours.”
I went to Ulta the next day and purchased the Physician’s Formula concealer in Fair Light (because I resemble a ghost) which is actually one of the few concealer shades that has ever been light enough to match my skin tone. I paid $8.99 for the product, not bad at all really. There, unfortunately, aren’t a ton of shades, but there are several options, so most can find a workable shade!
The next day I applied it to my skin and was absolutely blown away! It covered everything! I do mean everything! Every blemish seemed to vanish, redness was vanquished, and even my dark circles (which I must admit are so dark that it looks like someone punched me in the eye) were hidden. I thought that this was too good to be true, surely it wouldn’t last through a long, hot school day, right? Wrong! This concealer stayed in place all day (about 12 hours) with no need for touch ups or anything, remaining in place, natural-looking, and flawless until I washed it off!
This concealer has remained and will continue to be my holy grail for blemishes and redness. However for under the eyes, I find that it can be a bit heavy, cakey, and drying. Don’t get me wrong, it looks all right, just not amazing. Nonetheless, this concealer is probably the best makeup purchase I had ever made. I have used up most of my tube and I intend to repurchase this for years to come! I love it! It is the one product that I know can count on! I highly recommend this to everyone!
At A Glance:
Color Selection: Not fantastic for darker shades, but for light skin tones there is a good selection
Coverage: Full without looking cakey
Finish: Matte and natural
Staying Power: All day (waterproof, sweatproof), I have gone as long as 14 hours with this on with no real issue other than maybe one touch up at the eight-hour mark

Bottom Line: This is the best concealer I have every tried! I recommend this to anyone and everyone with any sort of skin insecurities from acne to rosacea to dark circles to hyper-pigmentation to dark spots!
