Zao concealer helps blend in imperfections, dark circles or puffiness as a corrective cream and provides coverage with a perfectly natural look. The stick format is easily transportable, allowing you to touch up any time during the day.

This newly reformulated concealer now has a vegan formula, using organic carnauba wax, candelilla wax and organic cocoa butter instead of beeswax.


491 - suits those with fair skin who need a yellow-toned base to conceal visible under eye circles

492 - suits those with medium skin and neutral undertones

493 - suits medium skin, concealing violet under eye circles with its yellow undertone concealing violet under eye circles

494 - suits medium skin, concealing blue under eye circles with its orange undertone concealing blue under eye circles

499 - suitable for all complexions, this shade colour-corrects redness

Ingredients highlight:

Organic castor oil (RICINUS COMMUNIS (CASTOR) SEED OIL): This oil is emollient and so facilitates softer skin. It is also moisturising, increasing the water content of skin to keep it soft and smooth.

Organic carnauba wax (COPERNICIA CERIFERA (CARNAUBA) WAX): Secreted by leaves of a palm tree native to Brazil, this wax is a film-forming agent that protects skin via the production of a continuous film; this helps makeup to last for a longer duration.

Organic bamboo macerate (PHYLLOSTACHIS BAMBUSOIDES RHIZOME EXTRACT): Bamboo macerate is extremely rich in organic silica, required by the body for the production of collagen, the body's anti-ageing weapon. Our bodies require silica to maintain elasticity of the upper layers of the epidermis.

Packaged in a unique, varnished bamboo case and attractively presented in a bamboo pouch with drawstring, Zao makeup is both a beautiful gift and an item to treasure.

This product, as with all Zao products, is free from talc and parabens (synthetic preservatives), using instead micronised silver as an effective and non-toxic preservative. Zao does not use nanoparticles in their products, with the micronised silver being larger than nanoparticle size, making Zao products safe and free from toxic chemical preservatives.

Instructions for use: The Zao Concealer is the indispensable first step to achieving a perfect complexion and eliminating imperfections. It comes in different shades to suit different skin tones, with its stick format allowing you to apply the product directly and locally. Select a shade one tone lighter than the colour of your skin. To soften dark under-eye circles, start at the inner corner of your eye, move along the edge of the dark circles and blend towards your lower lashes. For a fast finish, apply the corrector directly or on your finger; for a more precise application, use a brush. To minimise imperfections using your finger, apply the cover stick to the area to correct and dab around it to even out the complexion.

Zao beauty tip: To balance and clear up your complexion, apply concealer on blood vessels, redness on the nose or deep lines of expression.

To hide spots that stand out, choose a darker tone than your skin tone (fashion rule: dark thins = make-up rule: dark softens).

    Great concealer

    Posted by Laura on 18th Jan 2021

    Blends easily, and lovely natural colour tone so that you can’t tell afterwards where you’ve applied it. Good range of colours to select from, and the refillable packaging is fab too. Have knocked it down to 4 stars as like many other concealers, I don’t find it stays in place all day so needs to be reapplied.

    Okay but a little drying.

    Posted by Amy on 12th Jan 2021

    I have loved the zao compact powders, mascara and foundation. I absolutely love the packaging, that they are organic and refillable too. So I was really excited to try the concealer. I chose the lightest shade they had, which is okay but still a little too orange for very fair skin. The concealer I normally use is almost white in comparison. So I think if they had a wider range of colours - especially lighter, that would be better. I did also buy the light touch complexion which I put on top to lighten up the concealer but the texture becomes a little cakey and the two different products then separate on your skin which doesn’t look good. The concealer is also very very dry. Which I didn’t mind about the foundation as I can mix with moisturiser. But in a concealer you need it to be blend-able which this one isn’t. As soon as it’s on your skin you have to blend with your finger quickly before it dries. I prefer the light touch complexion colour but unfortunately this doesn’t have enough coverage to be used as a concealer and again is too dry once on the skin. I will continue to use and love other zao products but unfortunately the concealer and light touch complexion I won’t be using. Will keep my eye out for an improvement in colours and formula though and look forward too trying again in the future.

    So impressed!

    Posted by Virginie Ferguson on 1st Oct 2020

    I think this has to be the best concealer I have ever tried in a stick! I bought 2 shades-494 and 493 as I wasn't too sure which would be best, 494 is perfect juts now as I still have a little tan from the summer, and I think 493 will be good in the depth of winter! I love that I can interchange those colours within the same bamboo case! As for the concealer itself, I love how it just glides on effortlessly (some sticks I had before were too hard and ended up breaking at the base with a little pressure needed to apply it!), it has great coverage and feels almost powdery. It blend in super easily by dabbing with my fingers. I like a super natural non make-up look and can't be bothered with sponges and brushes, so I'm delighted how this goes on quick and easy!

    Really lovely concealer. Matched me skin well, nice creamy consistency and plenty of product. Medium coverage.

    Fab concealer

    Posted by Lucy on 10th Aug 2019

    I've been really impressed with the concealer - it goes on well, lasts well and definitely covers up my dark circles. Would like to know how to recycle plastic part?

    Great texture to this concealer, it blends beautifully and I love that the packaging is refillable. BUT.... the lightest shade is far too dark for fair skin. It has a yellow, almost orange tone to it, making it impossible to cover dark circles with. It left me looking really tired. Disappointed, as this was advertised as being for fair skin tones and isn’t cheap for a concealer.
