Make Up And Hair (MUAH) - NYX HD Concealer in Light/Pale and Beige

by - February 25, 2016

Concealer is one of the most used items in my makeup kit.  A close runner up is brow pencil.  How about you?

Anyway, the reason I have two shades is because, back in December, I've used up the first one without posting a product review.  It's nice though because I can share a swatch comparison.  Yay!

When I was at NYX store, I asked for something darker than my current shade since I noticed that CW03 is a bit too light on me.

It retails at 360 php but I got one of these at a discounted price because of a sale back then in SM Department Store.

there's silica and wax

Now, you'd think that "wow, a concealer below 400 pesos" but after running out of my first tube after  roughly 2 months and having to buy a second one, I realized that it's not too affordable for its size.

A tube contains 3g of product and two would cost you 720 php.  Some liquid concealers are priced pretty much the same, maybe not too cheap from drugstore brands but they hold more than 6 grams.  There's even the L.A. Girl PRO Conceal which retails below 300 php but has 8g.  You get the idea?

Let's talk about the color.

Light/Pale has a pink tone to it.  It kinda reminds me of salmon concealer bases, which are good for neutralizing dark circles.

Beige has a typical skin/foundation-like color.

I don't have photos wearing Light/Pale and the swatch here looks very faded because there's barely any product left.  Sorry!

They are both super pigmented so coverage is great.  It could conceal dark circles, pores and blemishes very well.

It doesn't give me troubles when I blend it using my fingers or a brush.  Formula is a bit creamier than common liquid concealers.

Obviously, it comes with a doe-foot applicator but there's also a pot/cream version.

I also noticed that once it sets, there's no way you can move it further.  No budging!  So make sure you blend fast.  Maybe that's one feature of HD concealers.

There's no glue-like scent as well and it applies very evenly.

For someone who doesn't have troubled skin, you can really skip foundation for normal, everyday makeup.

My only gripe is the creasing.  Ugh.

I don't have dry skin but this still creases like there's no tomorrow.  Worse, it starts by the time I finish my makeup.

With primer and eye cream underneath, it's better.  However, it still dries up the area a bit and even though it's long-lasting, it doesn't look very even on skin after several hours.

I also tried putting BB cream or foundation on top just to make it dewier and to prevent dryness but the product would just settle in the fine lines.

Overall, coverage and formula is very impressive but if you go for this concealer, you have to deal with the drying and creasing factor.

Well, maybe I'm just not doing the set-it-with-powder part correctly or I need a better setting powder.  So again, it might work differently on somebody else.
