Huda Beauty are one of my favourite beauty brands, and I bought the Huda Beauty The Overachiever Concealer last year, however I’m only just getting round to reviewing it. I love, love, love the Huda Beauty #FauxFilter Skin Finish Foundation Stick, so I’ve been on a mission to try all of the brand’s base products ever since..
“Packed with 31% pure pigment, and multi-action skincare actives – the Overachiever not only covers and conceals, but also soothes the delicate skin around the eyes with every application.
Inspired by the hustlers and those who do the most, Huda set out to create a multitasking formula that go-getters could trust to work as hard as they do.
Developed with tired eyes and long nights in mind, the formula works to disguise the appearance of dark circles, redness, hyperpigmentation, age spots, and discoloration with a beautiful luminous-matte finish.”
The Huda Beauty The Overachiever Concealer is £24 / $30, and contains 10ml of product. There are twenty shades available, and the concealer appealed to me because the formula is said to be infused with skincare actives.
The Huda Beauty The Overachiever Concealer has a creamy formula which is infused with green tea, which is known to erase signs of discolouration and stress, while also helping to protect the skin against external aggressors and discolouration.
The formula has been designed with the fragility of the under-eye skin in mind, with Jericho rose extract to its soothing and moisturising properties, and is also known to promote cellular regeneration as you wear.
Huda Beauty claims the Huda Beauty The Overachiever Concealer is enriched with long-wearing polymers which fuse to the skin, giving you water-resistant, transfer-free coverage all day long.
The Huda Beauty The Overachiever Concealer is packaged within a matte, black plastic tube with a ‘luxurious Zamac tip’ to help instantly soothe and de-puff around your eye as you apply, which leaves you looking brightened, refreshed and awake.
To use the concealer, you squeeze the tube, and the concealer squeezes from the hole in the centre of the metallic tip. You can use the metallic, slanted tip applicator to apply the concealer should you wish to, but for me personally, I prefer to use a beauty sponge to apply my concealer.
I can’t believe how pigmented the Huda Beauty The Overachiever Concealer is. You only need a tiny, tiny amount of product, and it spreads very well over the skin. The formula contains 31% pure pigment, and that’s very evident when trying to blend the concealer into the skin.
It covers absolutely everything. Freckles, blemishes, acne scarring, redness, dark circles – you name it, this concealer will cover it. It’s one of the most pigmented concealers I’ve ever tried.
In the swatches above, I only applied a very sheer layer, and it covered and blurred nearly half of my hand, so this 10ml tube will last forever.
I bought the Huda Beauty The Overachiever Concealer in the palest shade which is Whipped Cream, and is described by the brand as being fair with golden undertones. It’s such a great shade for super pale skin like mine.
I can use Whipped Cream straight from the tube, without having to use any lightening drops, which is very rare for me. I like to use the concealer with a dampened beauty sponge, as I don’t need super high coverage, and I like that this concealer is versatile in that it can be applied very lightly for sheerer coverage, or full cover everything coverage.
My skin is very dry and dehydrated, so fuller coverage formulas don’t always look the best on me, and I do find the Huda Beauty The Overachiever Concealer can look quite dry when applied under my eyes.
So I personally prefer to use a more hydrating concealer for my eye area, and just keep the Huda Beauty The Overachiever Concealer for concealing my face, which it works really well for.
I would so love Huda Beauty to launch a sheerer, more hydrating concealer in a formula which is similar to their #FauxFilter Foundation Stick, and hope we will see the brand launch more concealers in the future!
