Bonus points, per the experts: This foundation has hyaluronic acid, a hydrating ingredient that gives skin a dewy, glowy finish.
One tester said: “The packaging is elegant, and the quality of the product is top-tier. The texture is smooth and you don’t need to apply a ton of product to achieve full coverage.”
The Best Buildable Concealer: Kulfi Beauty Main Match Concealer
If you’re looking to hide a pimple or dark spot, this Kulfi Beauty concealer offers all-day coverage. Testers loved how its creamy formula gave them a creaseless finish, especially under the eyes.
Bonus points, per the experts: This concealer contains licorice root extract—a great brightening ingredient to help fade dark spots and hyperpigmentation over time.
One tester said: “This concealer stayed on great through my yoga class. It never faded or felt streaky, which is huge. I 100% will be buying this again!”
The Best Full Coverage Concealer: Sephora Collection Best Skin Ever Full Coverage Multi-Use Concealer
This Sephora Collection concealer claims to be full coverage, and our testers agreed: It stands the test of time. It’s lightweight enough for everyday wear but thick enough to camouflage the reddest of zits and darkest of undereye circles.
Bonus points, per the experts: The hyaluronic acid in this concealer will moisturize your skin without clogging your pores.
One tester said: “This is a very good concealer: It covered the dark circles under my eyes and blended into my skin easily. It has a very good consistency, and stayed on all day!”
The Best Blush Oil: Youthforia BYO Blush Color Changing and Tinted Blush Oil
Our testers loved this blush oil—which actually looks a little bit different on everyone, thanks to a dye that reacts to your skin’s pH level. The reaction, in turn, creates a specific pigment—and that’s what you’ll see on your cheeks. Pretty cool, right?
If you’re concerned that this product may lead to breakouts, don’t worry: It’s formulated with ingredients derms say are okay for oily skin types too. (More on this below.)
Bonus points, per the experts: This blush has derm-approved ingredients like jojoba oil and aloe vera.
One tester said: “I was a little skeptical, but this product is really marvelous. They say to put it straight on the brush and then apply it to your face (rather than dabbing it onto your face and rubbing it in with a brush, which is more typical for liquid makeup), but it worked! It blended well and made me look kissed with color.”
The Best Cream Blush: Half Magic Cheek Fluff Soft Blur Blush
While Cheek Fluff comes in a compact and looks like a powder blush, it blends like a cream brush—truly the best of both worlds. Our testers appreciated how buildable it was, so you can use as little or as much as you want.
Bonus points, per the experts: This product contains dimethicone, a hydrating silicone safe for all skin types but ideal for dry, scaly, or patchy skin.
One tester said: “This blush is incredible! With each application, it gives a gorgeous blendable hue. All of the shades are pretty, and would work for a variety of skin tones.”
The Best Eye, Lip, and Cheek Stick: SUMMER FRIDAYS Blush Balm Sticks
This product truly does it all: Testers applied it on their cheeks, eyelids, and lips for a natural and minimalist daytime look, and loved that it’s super efficient and travels well.
