In the current blitz of hydrating concealer’s flooding the market, the Too Faced Peach Perfect Concealer stands alone. Packaged in a glass pot and with the word “matte” scrawled across the outer packaging, it’s a distinctive contrast to the latest trend of doe foot concealers, all promising added hydration.
While I’m usually all about the glow, I’ll admit I’ve got a weakness for almost anything that Too Faced releases (notwithstanding that awful “Pretty Rich” collection, #whatweretheythinking). Cute marketing strategies aside, I’ve actually found many of their formulas to work exceptionally well for me and several of their products have made their way to favorite status in my collection.
So when I saw this concealer discounted on Sephora’s website to $15, I couldn’t resist and promptly added it to my basket.

Too Faced Peach Perfect Concealer Review
Too Faced describes this product as a “matte, instant coverage concealer”. It’s supposed to be super-pigmented, waterproof, and crease-resistant with a comfortable matte finish.
The Peach Concealer has a solid cream texture that seems to melt a bit as it transfers to a finger. Though it doesn’t feel particularly thick, it doesn’t thin out and sink into the the skin, but rather remains pretty opaque as it blends.
It’s also not what I’d describe as sticky, it had more of a moussey or silicone feel to it. There’s a dryness to the consistency of the concealer and it sets very quickly on the skin. It leaves no tacky or sticky feeling so you wouldn’t necessarily need to set it with powder.
While the Peach Perfect Concealer doesn’t add any moisture to the skin, I didn’t feel that it was drying it out either, like some really matte liquid concealers do.
The texture really reminds me of the Nars Soft Matte Concealer, they both have a solid, mousse like consistency as they blend. The Nars however, seems to have a bit more moisture to it than the Peach Perfect and it feels a little less solid in the pot.
Compared to the Mac Studio Finish Concealer which also has more of a solid-gel consistency, the Peach Perfect felt drier and more matte.
The concealer tends to cling a bit to the skin so I wouldn’t recommend using a brush since it would tug at the under-eye skin. Instead, I used my fingers to initially apply the product and blended with a damp Micro Mini Beauty Blender.
Despite the brand’s description of “full coverage”, I’d describe the Peach Perfect Concealer as more of a medium coverage product. It managed to lighten my under-eye area but didn’t completely cover the darkness. I did a side-by-side comparison of the Peach Perfect and the Nars Soft Matte, and the Nars definitely provided more coverage than the Peach Concealer.
Because the Peach Perfect is marketed as a matte concealer, I was initially concerned that it would end up looking really cakey and dry on my under-eye.
The first time I wore the concealer, I set it with the Colourpop Loose Setting Powder and it seemed like it was emphasizing fine lines under my eye. As a result, I subsequently made sure to prep my skin with a hydrating eye cream used the tiniest amount of the Too Faced Peach Blur Powder to set it.
This combination worked well and left the concealer looking virtually undetectable. The finish is matte, however when applied over a hydrating base, it leaves more of a natural look on the skin, rather than a super dry one. By contrast, the Nars Soft Matte Concealer looked more obvious on the skin and seemed to collect the creases.
As with all of the other products in Too Faced’s Peaches and Cream collection, the Peach Perfect Concealer has the same artificial, sweet peach scent. The smell seemed to dissipate as it wore, and I didn’t notice it much after I applied it. If you’re one who is very sensitive to smells, you may find this bothersome.
The Too Faced Peach Perfect Concealer is available in 18 shades and there seems to be a variety of both cool and warm undertones that range from fair to deep.
I wear the shade Honeycomb which is labeled as light-medium, with golden undertones. It seems to lean a bit peachy on my NC30 skin tone but looks alright once blended in.

For me the Too Faced Peach Perfect Concealer really comes down to application method. It’s definitely matte and it can cake up if over-applied, so I wouldn’t recommend it for those with dry or very textured skin. That being said, I liked how it stayed in place and seemed not to crease when applied correctly. I think it would be a good option for someone who doesn’t want to set their under-eye with powder and I think it would work well on blemishes.
