NYX HD Photogenic Concealer- Review, Swatches, Photos!

Hey Gurls...
Today Il review my favorite concealer of all times!!! Its the NYX HD Photogenic Concealer & im in the shade Tan. I cant stop raving about this product! Its the best in my collection. I have tried concealers in a jar, jumbo pencil concealers, twist up concealers, little pans, powder ones etc.. but this one is the best!
So let me start with the review...
Price: Rs 475/-
Qty:  3g

What It Says?
Concealer—who me? 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, and creates medium to heavy coverage. Available in 12 shades. Use the lavender for sallow skin, the green tone neutralize redness and the yellow for under-eye darkness.

 
Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Cetyl Dimethicone Copolyol,Phenyl Trimethicone, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Isononyl Isononanoate,Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Polymethylmethacrylate, Silica, SorbitanOlivem, Magnesium Sulfate, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax,Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, and Xanthan-Gum. MAY CONTAIN: TitaniumDioxide (CI 77891), Chromium Oxide Green (CI 77288), Chromium HydroxideGreen (CI 77289), Iron Oxide Black (CI 77499), Iron Oxide Yellow (CI77491), Iron Oxide Red (CI 77492) Ultramarine Blue (CI 77007), orManganese Violet (CI 77742).

What I say?
It does exactly what it claims! Im a medium skin tone & the shade Tan suits me best. It is a tad bit dark when I apply it, but after I blend with my fingers it suits me best.
It has a very mild fragrance. It is Paraben free! mineral enriched & talc free.
Its a light weight creamy concealer. Application is smooth, covers up every discolorations, acne marks, redness around the mouth, dark under eye circles almost everything! It doesn't looks cakey & as they claim even if you want a heavy coverage it doesn't looks obvious! Can be used for medium to heavy coverage.
It stays for around 8hrs on me, even if i have oily t-zone. It doesn't melts, or moves! so that's a yaaay!!! It dint break me out.


I have used a very light hand. But the coverage it gives is very good


How i use it?
Or
  • after using my Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer I use the concealer on the spots, blend with the fingers & top it off with the powders mentioned above.
In both the techniques it looks good, not patchy or cakey. But since its a little creamy it has to be set with some setting powder or it will crease. It doesn't settles into fine lines near the lips or under the eyes. blends with my skin flawlessly. 
The only thing that i dint like is the packaging, they could have made it in a squeeze tube just for hygienic purpose.

You might like it if...
  • you want a lightweight concealer that hides all imperfection
  • you want to conceal the discolorization near eye & lips
  • you a looking for a concealer that doesnt looks cakey even after a heavy coverage
  • you want a natural finish concealer
  • you want a Paraben Free product!
  • you are looking for a concealer that stays for quiet long time & doesn't melts
You might not like it if...
  • you don't want a concealer with a wand
  • you find Rs 475/- a bit too pricey
  • you don't like setting concealers with loose powders
Final Verdict: I'm so in love with this concealer! It meets waht they claim! & i totally recommend it to everyone. There are also different shades available like lilacs & yellow to cancel out the bluish or redness of the face. These shades are very difficult to find in the product available in India.

Rate: 4.8/5

Hope this review helped you!
Let me know which one is your favorite concealer? & what kind do you like?
