7 Concealers That Prove 2019 is the Year of Hidden Eye Bags

BRB, off perfecting that under-eye triangle.

If 2017 was the year of color corrector, and 2018 was the year of blush, I’m left wondering what 2019 will be crowned the year of. My prediction is concealer! Since Tarte’s concealer, Shape Tape, lined beauty counters and brightened the under eye hallows of beauty lovers across the land, competing brands have been trying their best to topple the top-selling, top-rated, cherry-on-top concealer. Even Tarte! After Shape Tape, an Ulta exclusive, was a major success, Tarte released their Creaseless Concealer. It wasn’t a smash hit like Shape Tape. Nothing has been. But a new year means new beauty launches. Some of the most highly anticipated launches are concealers. Here are a few that will have you clicking ‘add to cart.’
