I love NYX cosmetics! They’ve impressed me with their eyeshadows, their setting spray, and their lipsticks, which is why I thought it was time I gave their concealer a try. I picked up their HD Photogenic Concealer at CVS a month back, and have been playing with it ever since.
These concealers run for $5, come in 23 shades (including 3 color correcting shades), and are cruelty free. They come in your average tube + doe foot wand packaging combo and the design on the front is fairly basic. I would show the design label to you all, but, as you can see, it has almost completely worn off the tube, even though I’ve only owned it for a month and have never taken it out of my bedroom.
I usually like to stall on these posts, but I will say that I hands down love this concealer. On the website it claims that it “covers imperfections, discoloration and under-eye circles without ever looking cakey or obvious.” I feel like it did a pretty great job of living up to these standards. I use it under my eyes, and while I don’t have the darkest under-eye circles, I do have a lot of hyper-pigmentation and acne scarring in the areas where I usually highlight with the concealer. My foundations tend to be more light-medium coverage, and this is excellent at covering up what they leave behind, or I sometimes put this on first, so that I can use less foundation later. It’s also not cakey at all, even though I put a whole lot on.
The concealer has a nice luminous/natural finish to it, so your skin looks super healthy and hydrated once it’s blended in. The only downside, is that it does crease. This does not particularly bother me, because I’m cool with hitting that “hot mess chic” type of look. If you aren’t here for creasy under eyes though, you will need to set this with a powder immediately.
Overall, I am living for this concealer! It’s lightweight, hydrating, and leaves my skin looking so healthy and happy. Plus, it’s super cheap!
Thanks for reading!
Until next time, have an awesome rest of your day and an amazing rest of your week!
