Most Natural Finish: Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear Camouflage Corrector
Why It’s Worth It: Tioseco says this Lancôme formula is her “go-to for clients with redness in their skin.” This full-coverage corrector also comes in shades of lilac for brightening sallowness, yellow to combat dullness, and a range of oranges for all skin tones to address dark circles and acne scars. Even better, this pigmented formula works for all skin types.

Best Multitasking Formula: Live Tinted Huestick Corrector
Why It’s Worth It: We love a product with range, especially one that glides on as easily as this does. While you could use the Best of Beauty-winning Huestick for dark, blueish areas, it also acts as a four-in-one eye, lip, and cheek multistick. Chock-full of hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, squalane, and vitamin E, the Huestick Corrector has a soft, semi-matte finish that won’t look cakey. It also introduces a dose of vitamin C to help brighten dark spots over time.
Editor Tip: You can blend out the pigment with your (clean!) fingers or, as associate news editor Gabi Thorne prefers, use a concealer brush. “Everyone blended out so easily and I also loved that I could control how much product I added with the stick’s pointed tip,” she said in her review.
Key Ingredients: Hyaluronic acid, squalane, vitamin E, vitamin C
Who It’s For: People who love a true makeup-skin-care hybrid product and/or want to streamline their routine | Finish: Semi-matte | # of Shades: Five
Best Budget Color Corrector: L.A. Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealer
Why It’s Worth It: You can’t go wrong with a $5 price tag, especially when that product is approved TikTok’s own Mikayla Nogueira, who uses this exact product to address red spots. In her video, she suggests using a small, dense brush to tap the green concealer into the areas you want to neutralize, setting it with loose powder, and then going over with your regular, skin-tone concealer before applying foundation.
