I’m not sure how I came across NYX HD Photogenic Concealer Wand but I was on a quest to find a drug store under eye concealer that works in concealing dark circles. Since I ran out of my usual concealer, I wanted to try something new.
I have not heard many people talk about the NYX HD Photogenic Concealer Wand but since I saw the words HD and Photogenic on the package I got curious. I’ve used other NYX products but never skin products and since it was cheaper then my previous concealer I went for it. They have variety of colors like bright yellow, peach and green plus the usual skin tone shades.
I was looking for a basic concealer in my skin tone, I chose the color CW05 Medium which matches my skin tone well. I also wanted to try the bright yellow one too, it looks like it would really brighten up the under eyes. If I do try that I will let you know how it turns out :)
This under eye concealer comes in a wand which makes it easy to apply on small blemishes and imperfections. On application the concealer is light weight with a light to medium coverage that you can build up and it conceals dark circles almost seamlessly. However, it doesn’t do a great job covering acne scars that seem to be a darker color. To cover dark spots you have to reach for something more full coverage. You might find yourself applying two coats to get enough coverage, personally I don’t like to work too hard to get my concealer to work.
If you have dry skin using this concealer alone without a foundation or under eye cream, might make your under eyes look a little dry. You can apply NYX HD photogenic concealer with fingers or a beauty blender and set with a light power to prevent it from settling in fine lines and wrinkle. Over all this product is okay if you don’t have major dark circle and imperfections. I personally wouldn’t purchase this again.
