Lady Gaga explaining further to Forbes “I really wanted to take your complexion experience to the next level. We had such a beautiful time formulating our foundation that it needed its little sister, but we wanted to make something that did a little something extra. This concealer brightens under the eyes the way you want concealer to but even better, it uses niacinamide. [It] conceals in the most beautiful way with a creamy texture, and then it blurs as well. It has a wonderful way of going into your fine lines and wrinkles. But the extra thing that our concealer does is it depuffs underneath your eyes. “Keeping with the Haus Labs mission of inclusivity there are 31 shades to choose from.
