NYX Concealers Review

I have purchased several concealers from NYX, and I decided to review them in 1 post. At the end of this post, I will include a comparison swatch of all the concealers.

 

NYX Wonder Pencil: I purchased this pencil as part of my NYX Cosmetics Haul in the shade Light, which is a matte light skin tone shade. In comparison to the other shades of concealers, this one is the lightest, but it has good pigment. This pencil is versatile and can be used to conceal blemishes and flaws, line lips, and brighten eyes. I mainly use this pencil to touch up and correct my makeup, and I will occasionally use it to line lips. Even though this pencil can be used as a concealer, it only provides light coverage, so this is not my go to concealer. However, since this is a pencil, it allows for precision and it can easily be sharpened without breaking. This pencil also applies smoothly, blends well, and has good lasting power when used with primer, powder, and setting spray. I would not recommend the Wonder Pencil as a concealer, but I would still recommend purchasing it because of its versatility. However, there are only 2 other shades available in Medium and Deep.

NYX HD Photogenic Concealer Wand in Light: I purchased the Light shade of this liquid concealer, which is a light beige with pink undertones. In comparison to the other concealers, this shade is the darkest, but it also has good pigment. I mainly use this concealer to cover imperfections, and it provides full coverage. I also use the shade Fair, which is a beige shade with pink undertones, to brighten under my eyes, but the Light shade can also help with dark circles. This concealer applies smoothly with the applicator and it blends easily with a beautyblender. The concealer also lasts all day when set with finishing powder. The concealer comes in 23 shades including yellow, lavender, and green. I would highly recommend the HD Photogenic Concealer in the skin tone shades because this is my go to full coverage concealer.

NYX HD Photogenic Concealer Wand in Green: The pastel green shade is used to counteract redness, but it is very pigmented. This concealer applies easily with the applicator, but it is difficult to blend even with a beautyblender. This concealer also leaves a green tint on my skin even after applying foundation. Like with the previous HD Photogenic Concealer, this concealer lasts all day when set with finishing powder. I would not recommend the HD Photogenic Concealer in the Green shade because even though it does cover redness, it leaves a green tint on the skin.

NYX Incredible Waterproof Concealer: When I purchased this concealer as part of my NYX Cosmetics Haul, it was on clearance on NYX’s website, but it is now no longer available. I bought this concealer in Light, and unlike the HD Photogenic Concealers, this one is a stick that twists up. This concealer applies easily, blends well, and lasts all day with primer and setting spray. However, this concealer only provides medium coverage for blemishes and fine lines, and it does not help cover dark circles. This concealer also claimed to be waterproof, but it will come off with water and most likely sweat too. This concealer was available in 11 different shades including lavender, green, and yellow, but I can only find them for sale on Amazon and eBay. I would not recommend the Incredible Waterproof Concealer because it is not waterproof and the HD Photogenic Concealer provides better coverage.

Overall, I would highly recommend the HD Photogenic Concealer, but not in the Green shade. The Wonder Stick is great, but not as a concealer, and I would not recommend the Incredible Waterproof Concealer.wp-image-1347141986jpg.jpg NYX Wonder Pencil in Light, NYX HD Photogenic Concealer in Light, NYX HD Photogenic Concealer in Green, and NYX Incredible Waterproof Concealer in Light
