Today I’m sharing my impressions of NYX HD Concealer Photogenic in the shade #02 Fair/Clair.
Concealer is a very important product for me. I have very active dark circles as well as visible blood vessels in the outer corners of my eyes. This NYX concealer didn’t manage to conceal everything but still I want to use it. Let’s move on to a closer look of the packaging, action etc.
It’s typical for a concealer with a top cap to hold the sponge applicator. (It also looks like a typical lip gloss product). The new concealer was packed in a transparent tape. The tube is see-through. The lettering is applied with paint that smudges with time and stains my hands.
THE APPLICATOR is soft and of very good quality. I find it very easy to work with. I usually blend the concealer with my fingers/beautyblender/brush
SIZE 3ml (0.11 oz)
SHADE #02 Fair/Clair. It’ll compliment your skin if you have a fair complexion but the downside here is that this shade will not conceal dark circles. My dark circles have purple/red undertones which can be neutralized only with yellow concealer.
THE CONSISTENCY is thick and smooth.
THE STAYING POWER is average. If I touch my face during the day, even if I set the product with powder, the product will still fade and disappear.
THE APPLICATION is okay. I apply the product on my problem areas and blend it out. Straight after the application the concealer creases in small wrinkles so I have nothing left but to set it with nicely milled powder.
COVERAGE. The product doesn’t cover up my dark circles fully. 80% I’d say. Blood vessels still remain visible.
Here I powdered my skin and shaped the brows.

It FEELS COMFORTABLE wearing this product. It doesn’t dry out my thin under eye skin BUT I always moisturize it in the morning as well as in the evening after I wash my makeup off.
It is very important to moisturize your under eye skin when you use a concealer.
OVERALL: Even though the product didn’t conceal all my blemishes and I’d like it to be better in coverage, I still love it. If you don’t have very visible or active skin blemishes, I think you’ll love this product. I use it everyday. It greatly suits for everyday wear.
Thanks for your attention!
