The quest for a concealer that works on oily skin types can often be challenging and disappointing, as you find your oils peeking through after mere hours of application.

However, there are definitely concealers that can still do a great job in maintaining a silky matte complexion all day long. Some of the important things to look out for are oil-free, lightweight and waterproof formulas that have better staying power without being greasy.

Here are some of the common tried-and-true formulas that have gotten great reviews!

With its super-matte finish, this full-coverage concealer is perfect for your heavy-duty covering needs.

The hype is well-documented with this one, as the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer has consistently been lauded as one of the best concealers in the market. Its medium-to-high buildable formula gives a luminous finish. 

As it does not crease, this makes it suitable for covering dark circles, lines and various skin concerns. Great for combination skin as it will not be too drying while still having good staying power for oily skin (of course, setting it helps as well!) 

5. FENTY BEAUTY Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Concealer

Best concealer for large pores

Price from SGD38.00
