Review : NYX HD Photogenic Concealer Wand

Seeing that one of my favorite concealers from Revlon (Colorstay Blemish Concealer) is now being discontinued, it's time to search for a new one that will do the job. I searched high and low for a similar texture and found NYX's HD Photogenic Concealer in Beige. I've already included this in one of my monthly faves, but never posted a full review on it. Without further ado, here it is.

NYX HD Concealer Wand
My shade is Beige

It's hydrating, perfect for everyday use and one of the best sellers from NYX.
At least, that what the three symbols on top means.

How I Use It

I take a small dab and placed on the back of my hand. I take a fluffy eye blending brush, pat a little amount of concealer on the bristles and apply it on the blemishes present on my face.

What I Like About It
  • It's quite affordable, retailing at Rp 70,000 (prices may vary) at most online shops
  • The bottle itself is small and thin, so it doesn't take up much space in my makeup bag
  • It has 12 shades to choose from, also has color corrector shades (green and violet)
  • It doesn't break me out 
  • The texture is slightly creamy, but blends easily with either a brush or fingertips
  • Staying power is around 4-5 hours on my face when set with powder and around 2-3 hours when it's not set
  • The pigmentation is wonderful, so I don't need a lot of products for my blemishes, which results in a natural looking makeup
  • It provides a medium coverage on me, hence able to cover my acne scars
What I Hate About It
  • I wish it's packaged in a squeeze tube for hygienic purposes

I would recommend this to :
  • Someone who has mild, non pitted acne scars and wants to cover it, yet still looks natural
  • Someone who has normal/combination/dry skin type because it is a bit hydrating so the finish will be slightly dewy

  1. It sounds like a great concealer, especially considering the price point. I'm very curious about the green and lavender tints - never saw a liquid concealer in these colours!

  2. Nice review, aku dari dulu pengen beli concealer tapi slalu ga jadi, krn bingung mau beli yg mana sempet ngelirik baviphat juga, hihi :D. n kulitku kombinasi jd mikir2 dulu deh. lol XD

  3. Suki, price tag is pretty cheap and worth for this kind of performance. I haven't seen the color correctors here, tough. ^^

    Cominica, kamu tuh ga perlu pake concealer kayanya... --" baviphat yang mana concealernya?

  4. Its an amazing product. As a makeup artist i always have clients who ask for affordable products which are inexpensive not cheap. The brand NYX as a whole is amazing, but this concealer in particular has such a dewy, natural finish, and are flawless when paired with the color correctors and some powder.

  5. Where did you buy it??thank you:))
