This usually comes in a pot and is perfect if you need to hydrate a normal to dry skin. If for example, you have a skin prone to breakouts or if you have a sensitive skin, choose a cream concealer that is oil-free, it should be alcohol-free and also non-comedogenic.
- Stick Concealer. (More Coverage; Normal to Dry Skin). Most concealer sticks have a semi-solid texture. This is a perfect choice if you need to cover up blemishes and dark spots.
