Review: Huda Beauty Overachiever Concealer

Hi Beauties,

So I caved and bought the Huda Beauty Overachiever Concealer. It was popping up everywhere on Instagram and if I’m completely honest I just added it to my cart to get free shipping haha!!

Anyway, let’s actually see if its worth all the hype. What does Huda Beauty say about the Overachiever Concealer;

“Launching our new full coverage creamy concealer, armed with skincare actives and a cooling zamac tip.  

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.”

Overall Thoughts:

  • Retails for $30USD or $44 AUD
  • Available in 20 shades
  • I used the Find Your Shade function on the Sephora website and found that the shade they matched me to would have been a better match if it was a foundation. Using the shade that they recommended I then decided on a lighter shader about 5 shades lighter to ensure it would be highlighting under the eyes. Just something to keep in mind if you use the Find Your Shade function. I also googled swatches as well which really helped with deciding that Graham Cracker was the right shade for me.
  • The shade had a bit of a pink/ peach undertone which I found really helped brighten and neutralise the under eye area.
  • I like that it has a cool applicator and it comes in a squeezy tube which makes it super easy to apply.
  • The coverage is medium to full- buildable without being cakey.
  • However I do find it can cling to dry patches so make sure you moisturise before applying the concealer. I also make sure to prime with the Becca Under Eye Primer.
  • I also make sure to set the concealer with a powder and with this combo I find it doesn’t crease or look cakey at all. It also lasts all day and night long.

While I do think its a great under eye concealer I don’t think it warrants the price tag. I still prefer my Maybelline concealer, or maybe that’s just me being stingy. If you are wanting a new concealer to try and don’t mind spending a bit then you should check out the Huda Beauty Overachiever Concealer, otherwise just stick with what works well for you.
