NYX Concealers

I bought two different types of concealers from NYX. I bought two because with me trying to cover up my acne everyday I need to find a good concealer that lasts all day. 


The first one I'm going to talk about is NYX Concealer Magic Wand.  It's a part of their HD line. It promises: 






  • this lightweight cover-up obscures imperfections, discoloration and under eye circles, but does so without ever looking cakey or obvious. Little wonder the Concealer Wand is one of our best-sellers. The concentrated, emollient-rich concealer formula goes on like a dream, is non-comedogenic and creates medium to heavy coverage. Available in 12 shades. Use the lavender for sallow skin, the green to neutralize redness and the yellow for under-eye darkness. 
So does it live up to it's boosts? No. I found myself reapplying a few times in a day. It blends too well. I also bought it in a shade too light. But even with it a shade too light, it didn't do a great job covering up the redness. I honestly don't have much to say about this other than, it blends too well and doesn't last long. 


NYX Concealer Jar was the second concealer I bought from them. It promises:


  • A moisture-rich, emollient formula designed to conceal discoloration, dark circles and blemishes. Applied with a brush, the concentrated concealer goes on like a dream, is non-comedogenic and creates medium to heavy coverage. The Concealer Jar will last a long time. Available in 13 shades. Use the lavender for sallow skin, the green to neutralize redness, the yellow for under-eye darkness and the orange for under-eye darkness for those with olive skin tones. 

Well does this one live up to it's promises? Sorta. I ordered this in a shade too dark. Yet it was still usable because it's not that noticeable once blended, and a thin layer of powder to set my makeup is added. My thoughts on this concealer, blends nicely. Covers pretty well, I'd give it medium at most, not even close to full(heavy) like promised.  I have to reapply at least once a day. If I seem to be a little more active then I would have to apply it more than twice. 


So my thoughts gives decent coverage, blends nicely. Applies really nicely, but doesn't last all day. 


VERDICT: I would not recommend the NYX Magic Wand Concealer $6, the NXY Concealer Jar $6 is something that you might want to give it a shot. It might work better for you than mine, due to my oily skin. These products can be found in Ulta, or cherryculture.com or the NXY website.
