After Huda Beauty’s foundation was able to completely cover my hives during an epic allergic reaction last year, I was eager to try the brand’s new concealer. The Overachiever High Coverage Concealer ($30) comes in 20 shades and contains 31 percent pigment, meaning it’s very opaque. It’s also fortified with green tea to erase signs of stress and aging and includes a cooling metal tip. Huda Beauty created the concealer to be multitasking, so you can hide acne, hyperpigmentation, under-eye circles, and redness with just one product.
Even when just running to Starbucks, I normally like to wear a medium- to full-coverage foundation to feel my best. However, I decided to skip foundation altogether to test out this new launch. If the brand could be trusted to cover hives, I was confident the concealer would be enough to cover my zits and under-eye circles. After using a Beautyblender ($20) to dot and blend the product under my eyes, on my chin, around my nose, and anywhere else I encountered discoloration, I was surprisingly happy with the results. While I felt the need to add a little bit of salmon-colored corrector under my eyes to get rid of the blue tone of my under-eye circles, my face looked pretty good.
I would highly suggest you try out the formula, especially if you prefer to go without foundation, because this concealer really will do the complexion-perfecting job well.
