I love trying on new makeup products, and I’m mostly on the lookout for new products which people claim are promising. For the price NYX Professional Makeup Concealer Jar comes at, I did not mind giving this tiny jar a try.

It comes in 24 different shades, and I picked two - Yellow and Porcelain. I got the yellow shade to combat my dark ‘dark circles,’ and the porcelain one hides other imperfections. The kind of dark circles I have, no product has ever been able to hide them completely. However, I was hopeful about this one.

This product, as mentioned, comes in a tiny jar (something I don’t like). I have long nails, so I try not to dig them in. I mostly use a concealer brush or the back of my nails to get the product out. The concealer’s creamy texture is a little hard to blend with the brush, so I use my fingers to dab it in place and set it with loose powder.

The yellow concealer does a decent job in fading away my dark circles (impressive). And the porcelain one is great at hiding my dark spots and blemishes. I bought the concealer a couple of months back and have been using it almost every day ever since. For my dry skin, the creamy texture suits really well. While all this is good, setting the concealer with powder is very very important. The day I don’t do it, the concealer gets cakey and accentuates the fine lines of my dry under eye skin.

Overall, for this price, the NYX Professional Makeup Concealer Jar does a great job and can be used every day. A little product goes a long way, so you do not have to worry about the quantity also. I will surely recommend it to others.

Not the best concealer


Travel-friendly packaging


Not for oily skin

Can’t be used on the entire face

I always wanted to try a color corrector to conceal the redness around my nose and for my stubborn dark circles. I got my hands on this NYX Professional Makeup Concealer Jar and picked the yellow one. I have combination skin, part oily and part dry. Luckily, the area under my eyes is dry, but around my nose is oily.

When I first used the concealer, it did a good job on the dark circles, but on the rest of the face, it appeared to be very heavy and thick. Not the sight I liked. I tried setting it with powder, but after a while, it became worse.

Conclusion: I only use this concealer to cover my dark circles, and on the days when my skin is super oily, I don’t use it at all.

Accentuates what needs to be hidden


Not very expensive


Too creamy for oily or combination skin

Accentuates fine lines and pores

Feels heavy on the skin

Gets cakey

Concealer is supposed to ‘conceal’ imperfections, but NYX Professional Makeup Concealer Jar does the opposite. I got this concealer on a friend’s recommendation, and I have never been so disappointed. It accentuates the fine lines on my face, shines like a dewy, illuminating cream, and feels heavy. The setting powder also fails to set this concealer. I will not recommend this to anyone.

Average Concealer




A little goes a long way

Wide shade range

Easy to blend


Always needs setting powder

I like this tiny travel-friendly jar of concealer. The shade that I have (Fair) does a decent job of covering my dark circles and blemishes. Some days, I only use the concealer, set it with the powder and leave it on. It has a staying power of about 4 to 5 hours. Blending with fingers is easy. Overall a decent product for everyday use.
