Review: Best Concealers for Dark Skin Tones: Iman Cosmetics Cover Creams

As every dark-skinned beauty maven knows, finding a concealer perfect for your gorge skin is as tough as finding a man for keeps while you’re speed dating.

As a dark skinned lass, I’ve hunted for cosmetics like a CIA undercover agent, with the vain hope of snagging something that was my perfect shade. And you all know how impossible that can be.

Well, not too long ago, I fell in love with Iman Cosmetics and honestly I’ve been wearing these concealers on a daily basis. I feel they are one of the only lines that really understand that Indian skin really has yellow undertones and the available shades are beyond perfect.

Today, I want to discuss the richness and beauty of the Cover Creams. The texture, consistency and quality are second to none:

If you want something to erase those under eye shadows, puffiness or dark circles, these superheroes will truly protect you.

Available in two shades of Clay (medium and dark), two shades of Earth (medium and dark), and a light Sand these shades make the eye eclipse a thing of the past. Not only does it conceal, it protects and nourishes the skin with natural earth and marine minerals, botanical extracts like Goji Berry, Green Tea and Vitamin E. For Indian skins, I suggest the Clay concealers. For African American skins, Earth seems a suitable choice. For Mediterranean complexions, we definitely favor Sand.

They blend easily with the finger tips; or, of you’re particular, try using the Beauty Blender sponge. Here’s how they look on our bare hands:

These creams retail for $11.99 at
