Huda Beauty #FauxFilter Concealer Review

Hi, dolls!
I'm very excited to share with you all about the new Huda Beauty #FauxFilter concealer. If you're interested to find out more about it, let's get right into the review!

This post may contain affiliate links meaning that if you click on the link and purchase the item, I will receive an affiliate commission at no extra cost to you. However, my reviews/opinions on products are always 100% honest and I'll only recommend items that I love!

Huda's newest concealer is here! It's a crease-proof, medium to full buildable coverage creamy concealer that brightens, conceals, and moves with you for a luminous matte, skin-like finish that lasts all day. Infused with conditioning sweet almond oil and vitamin E to care for delicate under-eye skin, this versatile concealer has a lightweight, blendable formula that melts into skin but doesn't compromise on coverage or staying power!

I have previously tried Huda's Overachiever concealer in the shade Whipped Cream, however I have always found it to be too pale for my skin tone. This time, Huda has expanded her shade range to 9 new shades and I finally found my perfect match - Royal Icing 1.1N. You can see above how it swatches comparing to my other favourite concealers.

This new formula is definitely the one for me - I prefer it much more than the Overachiever concealer. Instead of a zamac applicator, the #FauxFilter concealer has a large pillowy soft doe-foot applicator and you have to be careful when pulling it out of the tube, as some product tend to splash around if you do it too quick. However, I still like the old doe-foot applicator when it comes to my complexion products as it helps to apply the concealer exactly where you need it to. This concealer is definitely brightening and great at covering any spots, dark circles and blemishes. I set it with both, Huda Beauty and Laura Mercier setting powders and each time, it didn't crease or move. Similarly to Huda's foundation, it gives a beautiful Faux Filter effect - it's like wearing an instagram filter on your face in real life. 

To help you find your perfect shade, Huda Beauty has created their Ultimate Complexion Shade Matching Guide, which matches their new #FauxFilter concealer with both of their #FauxFilter foundations, GloWish skin tint and their Easy Bake setting powders! I recommend checking it out if you're someone who struggles to pick the right shade online without being able to swatch it in-stores!

Final Thoughts
If you like medium to full coverage, you will love this concealer! It does everything you need it to do - covers, brightens and conceals. It comes in a great range of shades making it so easy to find your perfect match. You can also grab the darker shades to use for contour - because why not? 

I also wanted to upload a beautiful campaign that Huda and her team have created for this product. It talks about toxic beauty standards and I think it's so important we all watch it and learn from it. I never attach beauty campaigns to my reviews but this has truly touched my soul and I feel like I have to share it with everyone. 

Let me know your thoughts on Huda's newest concealer and her beautiful campaign behind it. Are you planning to purchase? What's your #FauxFilter shade? Don't forget to share below and stay tuned for my next review!

  5. Fab review. I’ve been a fan of Maybelline’s for a while now but I do think Huda’s concealer sounds promising.
