Live tint color correctors for dark circles are on sale

If you have dark circles under your eyes, you probably know the difficulty of covering them up with concealer alone. No matter how pigmented the formula is, a little shadow usually manages to come through – which is why color correction to balance out the darkness makes a huge difference. And for today only, some of the best multitasking color correctors in the business are half off at Ulta.

Live Tinted Huestick concealers were born out of necessity; Founder Deepica Mutyala originally used orange-red lipstick as a hack to counter her dark spots, and after her 2015 video on the trick went viral (the effect is wild), she developed the flagship product of the brand to provide buyers with a more elegant solution. The brand’s Huestick concealers all contain orange pigments to balance blue and purple eye shadows and hyperpigmentation, but with ingredients you’ll find in any great skincare product.

Namely, it includes hyaluronic acid, squalane, vitamin C, and vitamin E, so you get skin-brightening hydration and antioxidants every time you doodle on the chubby stick (we’re still here for a quick fix that bears long-term benefits). And according to buyers, the instant effect is a godsend for their problems. “Especially brunette girls or girls with dark eyes or hyperpigmentation, you won’t find a better color corrector than this,” one fan wrote. “It makes such a big difference when I use [shade] Get up in front of my concealer.”

Others have called it an “absolute game changer” that makes their dark spots fade away, and because the shades work just as well as lipstick, blush, and eyeshadow, they can use it. like their whole routine. “Best under eye brightener for me, hands down,” added another user, and people have even used it to cover their forehead veins on the recommendation of a makeup artist.

Followers of famed makeup artist Allan Avendaño know it’s one of his favorite tricks. Jenna Dewan frequently posts on Instagram the bright orange patches Avendaño puts on her melasma before foundation, and the effect is seamless. The fear with color correction is always that it will shine through foundation, but that’s not the case with Huesticks – they blend easily into your skin and look undetectable under makeup.

And according to customers, they have one final benefit: Huesticks are so smooth that when worn as a blush, they easily mask “massive pores.” As the same person wrote, it’s a “surprise hit that’s become a staple.” One will normally set you back $24, but for Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty sale, they’re down to $12 for today only. If you’re interested, get on them before they disappear.
