When TikTok user Aliyah (@aliyahwears on TikTok) got into a car accident, she decided to make the best of the situation. She used the opportunity to experiment with various concealers, giving each a rating from one to 10 based on their ability to hide her black eye.

An Instagram account dedicated to beauty tips and tutorials (@makeupxlooks on Instagram) posted her video, which quickly went viral, racking up an impressive 46 million views and 15,000 comments.

The comments on the post were filled with people expressing worry about the black eye she had in the video, with many assuming she was a victim of domestic violence.

Aliyah’s TikTok reviews provide valuable insights into product effectiveness, but they also inadvertently contribute to the concealment of domestic abuse. In a world full of online resources, it’s crucial for victims to break the silence and seek help rather than resorting to covering up the problem with makeup.

She also tested the concealers highly requested by TikTok users, as well as provided ratings for drugstore brands, making it a thorough and comprehensive review.

We’ve compiled the top-performing concealers from Aliyah’s three-part TikTok review here:

The NARS concealer was also featured in her latest TikTok video, where she made a comparison with Haus Labs and drugstore brands such as e.l.f., Maybelline, and L’Oreal. While it has slightly less coverage than the L’Oreal concealer, she emphasises that the NARS concealer still provides a good amount of coverage.

Aliyah’s score: 9/10

Kylie Cosmetics also made it to her top five list, providing significantly better coverage compared to the other concealers she tried in her original TikTok. Although it didn’t impress her as much as IT Cosmetics’ concealer did, it deserves recognition for effectively concealing her bruise, as compared to the other concealers featured in that video.

Kylie Cosmetics Power Plush Longwear Concealer retails from RM105 and is available at selfridges.com.
