I bought this on a whim because I needed a quick fix for my face. We all know how that goes. It actually reminds me a lot of the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer--just not quite as good of a product. It goes on like a dream, and does its job well. It just has more of a tendency (and I'm comparing it to the NARS product here) to cake/crease a bit. I might buy it again if I'm in a pinch. For the price, you really can't beat it.

I am very conflicted with this product. I would purchase this again solely because it is pale enough for my very porcelain skin. But it just gets DRY after a while and doesn't blend as beautifully as when you first open it. It also empties very quickly and I tend to have a light hand when applying it. This was also not a good one for covering blemishes since it didn't blend out well and it dried up all flaky. I would buy it as a last resort but definitely not my favorite one on the earth.

I love this stuff!!! It has been what I use to conceal under eye circles, blemishes, and even highlight my face all in one product. I bought the porcelain shade the first time, but it was a tad too light for what I wanted. So when I re purchased I decided to try the Fair shade and it is a perfect color. The wand applicator I like better than a pot concealer. I hate having to dip my finger in products. I swipe it on in a few places and blend either with a brush or fingers. This has good coverage and a creamy feel .It lasts me all day which is the best part of this stuff. I cant stand when I look in the mirror three hours after application and there are creases around my mouth and under my eyes. With this stuff I have yet to find a single crease or fade. I will continue to re purchase!!!! Very inexpensive too! I have yet to find another concealer from the drugstore I love more than this!

Ahh-mazing!! Cannot express how awesome this product works. I have tried almost all of the high-end concealers and this out-performs them. It can even double as a highlighter and wear it over another concealer, like the touche eclat from YSL. It is truly photogenic too! It spreads heavenly and has the right amount of pigment. It is a Staple in my make-up bag and I always have two or three handy. You cannot beat the price, too. It does not crease and it blends perfect with the rest of your makeup. But, the best quality of this concealer is that it does not look dry, flaky, or cakey. Must Have!!

So for the price, I don't think that you can find a better concealer out there. I've tried numerous high-end and drugstore brand concealers, and as far as the drugstore goes, this is the best one I have used thus far.

What I look for is a concealer that doesn't try me out, crease, or settle into the lines around my eyes. I like to do a triangle under my eyes for the highlight effect; therefore, I do use a bit of the product. Also because of this, I did buy the fair color to off set my medium complexion (and foundation).

This does the trick well enough, but I am very interested to try the NARS creamy concealer (not sure if this would be a dupe for that or not) and see how that fairs. When it comes to this type of product price really does not matter to me.

I would repurchase only because it does the job, and the price point is amazing.

This concealer was so-so for me. It wasnt horrible but it didnt wow me. Like with all NYX products it was really affordable which is great. This was just not extremely impressive, I kept grabing for other concealers and this one slowly sank to the bottom of my makeup drawer and I forgot about it. Maybe ill revisit this concealer and edit my review later!

I've tried dozens of concealers and almost given up completely b/c they all settle in my fine lines and wrinkles-- this one covers my dark circles and does not instantly settle in my creases :-) I'm a very happy girl!

I was born with very fair skin and thin, translucent under eye skin that shows the purple and plum shades under my eyes straight through. In other words, I look tired.all.the.time, even when well rested. If I fail to wear concealer under my eyes in public, people stop and ask if I am ok. I am not kidding. I had been using the Cover Girl and Olay under eye potted concealer and really like it - which of course means that it was discontinued. I bought up a couple of pots which will last me for a long time but realized I was going to have to seek out something else that would not be taken away as soon as I started loving it. Hence, this NYX HD Photogenic Concealer Wand. In my makeup drawer I have the following concealers: Benefit Bo-ing, Revlon Photoready, Rimmel Perfect Cover, Almay, and Maybelline Eraser. This blows them all out of the water. This is a light and very creamy concealer with a doe foot applicator. I apply it just to the inner corners of my eyes, extending above and below in a sideways "V" formation, and let set for a few minutes before patting with my ring finger. This covers my eye "bruises" amazingly well, with no caking. I am quite surprised by how pigmented this is considering that I traditionally hate wand concealers because they are never heavy enough to cover. This is different. I will absolutely re-purchase and would recommend this to anyone looking to cover heavy undereye circles. It is very light so make sure you have fair skin if you plan to use this shade or you will get a reverse raccoon look!

This review is actually for Porcelene which is one shade lighter than Fair.

I bought this after seeing a youtube review by ShadesofKassie who has very fair skin. I wanted my undereye area to look a tad bit lighter than the rest of my face but I couldn't find a color light enough until now. LOVE this for winter when I'm most pale. I'd probably give this a 4 for how it feels putting it on. I like something creamier. The result is a 5...so it's all good.

I have dry skin and some wrinkles. This doesn't settle on me and lasts all day. I do use eye cream before I put this on.

My young teenage daughter just started using it as a touch up concealer and it matches her skin perfectly. The other concealers she borrowed from me seemed to oxidize or were too dark.

Must try for very fair complexions :) Thanks MUA

There were limited shades, so I had to get the shade that's significantly lighter than my skin because the next shade darker was waaay darker than my skin. A good thing about it though is that I don't have to put too much concealer on my face, so I just need to spread out the product well. Today was my first time to use it along with a new primer that I had recently bought. I can't tell yet whether it causes break outs (for me, at least) or not. But generally, iIt does what it's supposed to. It's not too great on the under eye because they crease on that area. Also, my eyes got itchy a lot when I applied some of this product on my under eye. But overall, I think it's a good product. Very portable and easy to use. I just wouldn't use it on my under eye anymore.
