NYX HD Concealer

NYX HD Concealer

Recently, I was kicking around the Ulta, on a hunt for the perpetually sold-out Tarte Shape Tape in Light...which I will have one day. Of course, they didn’t have it, but I was getting pretty desperate for some concealer. I spotted the NYX HD Photogenic Concealer, mostly because it was on sale. Even at full retail, this baby is only $4.99. I figured, hey, it’s only five bucks, and I can’t get the one I want anyway.

My primary use of concealer is for...drum roll...concealing. I don’t use it for highlighting or contouring like many people I know do, so my main thing for concealer is high coverage and a natural finish. This concealer has both. Now that I know I love it, there are also some color correcting shades that I think I might look into.

Swatched here is CW02 Fair. Slightly lighter than my skin, but great for undereyes.

It’s extra blendable and never cakey. It’s also the rare consistency that is easy to blend with fingers, a brush, or a beauty blender. The only thing that I don’t really like is the applicator. The doe foot is a pretty standard concealer applicator, but the applicator holds so much product. It’s easy to goop it on without thinking when I’m in a hurry or not paying attention. Especially because the product is so high-coverage, this can be a problem.

Overall, I’m still waiting on my Tarte Shape Tape, but this is a great concealer (and at a good price) while I’m waiting for them to finally restock. Someday, right?
