Unhygienic packaging


I have read and heard so much about NYX Professional Makeup Dark Circle Concealer, and it seemed very promising, so I thought I’ll give it a try. To be honest, I wasn’t sure how well it would work because I have very prominent dark circles and the products I have used on it never worked.

The concealer comes in an outer box with all the information on it. It comes in a small round jar with a black screw lid. Overall, the packaging is travel-friendly but not hygienic.

The texture is creamy with orange pigments which are perfect for diffusing blue tones of dark circles. The consistency is semi-thick, so on my combination skin, it glides on very smoothly and easily. I got the Light shade because I have fair skin tone.

I use my ring finger to dab around my dark circles and use my fingers to blend it. The application is very easy. One layer does not really conceal so I apply three layers. Since this concealer is buildable, it works great!

NYX Professional Makeup Dark Circle Concealer has decent longevity when I apply it alone, but I have long working hours, so I brush it with a translucent powder to prolong its stay. The concealer does an excellent job of covering dark circles. However, it doesn’t brighten my under eye area.

Overall, I am really happy with NYX Dark Circle Concealer. I am so glad I finally found a concealer that works! It is a must try!

Gives good coverage and has a long staying power

PROS

Easy to blend

Long-lasting

Creamy consistency

Does not cake

Reapplication is not required

CONS

Unhygienic tub packaging


NYX Professional Makeup Dark Circle Concealer is the first concealer I have tried so I can’t really say where it stands in terms of its efficacy. But the experience I am having with it definitely sets a high bar.

I really like how creamy it is. As I roll my finger on the jar, it starts to melt on the tip and that way, it is so easy to blend on the crease of my eyes. The lasting time is also amazing, and reapplication is not required.

Although NYX Professional Makeup Dark Circle Concealer works very well, I want to explore other concealers so I won’t be repurchasing it. But I will recommend it. The reason I want to see other concealer is that I don’t really like the tub. Only my finger can fit, instead of using my finger, I want to use a sponge or a brush.

PROS

Affordable

Easy to apply

Lightweight

Smooth and creamy texture

CONS

Moderate pigmentation

Drying for dry skin


This concealer from NYX is very lightweight. The texture is smooth, creamy, and super blendable. As my skin is dry, it gets too drying sometimes. So before applying this concealer, I use under eye cream. If not, it does not work for me. Also, I was not so happy with the pigmentation because I need to apply a certain amount of layers to get full coverage. Otherwise, it is comfortable to use.

Settles into fine lines

CONS

Too thick


I tried so hard to make NYX Professional Makeup Dark Circle Concealer work on me, but it is just too thick and cakey. It settles into my fine lines and makes my eyes look weird.
