Drew Barrymore is an avid cosmetics lover—she loves makeup so much that she even created her own line, Flower Beauty. Lucky for us, she’s always willing to share her favorite products. From $10 mascaras to hydrating eye creams to moisturizing hair treatments, the 47-year-old only uses the best of the best, which is why we’re always keeping an eye out for her latest recommendations.
Her latest pick? The Flower Beauty Light Illusion Full Coverage Concealer.
In a recent Instagram reels post, Barrymore revealed she swears by the concealer to brighten and cover dark circles.
“This has been my absolute go-to for years,” Barrymore said in the video. “I want something that is really creamy but has a ton of coverage. I have dark circles and I’m going to just demonstrate what this bad boy can do.” She then applies the concealer directly to her under eyes using her fingers and then pats the product into her skin until it blends.

The award-winning smoothing concealer comes in 12 various shades ranging from cool to warm tones. Unlike many traditional concealers, this one is formulated with exclusive blurring pigments, which help to minimize the appearance of fine lines, signs of fatigue, and imperfections, according to the brand.
It’s also infused with hydrating ingredients like jojoba esters (to soothe the skin) and sunflower seed wax (to lock in moisture). The best part? The formula dries down to a nice soft-focus finish and doesn’t settle into fine lines.
“I tend to conceal with a little bit of a lighter layer than my shade because I’m looking for that illumination,” said Barrymore. “But there is great illumination in the creaminess of this product. It just doesn’t crease, not even with powder—it doesn’t crease.”
When it comes to concealers, experts recommend opting for formulas that will not only cover dark spots but also help to improve the skin. “Consider going with a concealer that also contains ingredients that can help your skin while it’s covered,” said Desireé Delia, a professional makeup artist based in New York City, in a previous interview for Prevention.
Ulta Beauty customers have also been loving the creamy concealer giving it a four-star rating and hundreds of stellar reviews.
“Make up for a 46-year-old is challenging at times. The concealer does an amazing job of feeling light, creaseless, and hydrating to the skin,” wrote one satisfied customer. “You can’t beat the price either! I would highly recommend it.”
“I’ve never been one for a ton of makeup so this concealer is perfect! It’s nice, light, and blends in perfectly! It doesn’t crease and gives you a nice all-day natural coverage on those dark circles,” added another reviewer.
