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.

This I bought at Ulta. It was I think 6$, but the buy one get one 50% off deal applied, so for like 3$. I like it for my nose, and undereyes. it really helps minimize pores and the dark circles! I would definitely buy it again. It makes me want to try the other concealers that NYX has.

I purchased the shade Fair and it was a good match to my complexion (MAC NC15). I only tried this product once after purchasing it and it didn't go over very well. This product has a very strong perfume scent that instantly made my eyes water and feel irritated after applying it. I immediately washed it off and I noticed for a few days that the skin under my eyes remained irritated, very dry and flakey. I wouldn't classify myself as having sensitive skin or eyes, but this product just doesn't agree with me.

I have this in medium. It looks a lot lighter in the container then it actually dries to. Light was too light for me and Medium is too dark. I do like the fact that it is more of a pink undertone rather then a yellow. The concealing power wasn't that good and it irritated my eyes and turned them pink. It did however not crease on me and I have a problem with products creasing badly on me.
Note... this is the new HD Photogenic Concealer.

I bought this concealer 3 months ago in light, medium, and green. I got them mostly for under eye darkness and redness coverage. These concealers cover really well. I like how creamy they are and the texture. That's about it for the likes. They crease like crazy under my eyes no matter what kind of powder I use, or without powder (and my eyes are moisturized nicely). And the worst is that they don't last very long and practically slide off my face when I'm applying them and I don't have really oily skin (and certainly not around my eyes!). I would definitely not be buying again and am actually looking into returning them to NYX. I know they're not that expensive but having 3 of them that are useless to me just sitting there reminding me of wasted money drives me nuts. I can use that money towards something better. I don't recommend this for under eyes.
UPDATE: I contacted customer service and they are sending me a free return shipping label and refunding me for all 3 concealers, even though I've had them for so long. Yay for NYX customer service. It really helps when a company wants to please customers.

This is good for covering dark circles and stuff, but I wouldnt say its very good at covering redness. Its still a good concealer :)

Someone on the makeup board recommended this to me so I ordered it from Ulta. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality, considering how inexpensive it is. The best thing about this concealer is that it is quite thick - does not just completely wipe off when you're trying to blend it in - but not at all cakey. I got the lightest shade since I am very fair, and although it is very light (a little white on my skin) it blends in fine under my powder foundation. It has good coverage and a natural finish. It lasts well (4-5 hours) and doesn't turn orange. Has not caused me any skin problems, and I didn't experience any smell or blending issues as some of the other reviewers did. Great for under the eye, blemishes and redness - an "all in one" concealer.

this doesnt last long. its runny but its cheap i guess its good for beginners. there are better ones out there. ive tried using it for under eyes and blemishes. its better for blemishes.

For reference, my skintone is about NC20-25 depending on the season. I have used this product for a little over a year.
Obviously Fair was too light for me, so Beige was my best match. Even then it was a tad on the light side.
Even though this is a liquid concealer, this is definitely thicker than most liquid concealers that I've tried. It's almost as thick as concealers in a jar, except inside a tube with a wand instead! Therefore, it's about medium-full coverage. For that reason, it does a very good job at covering dark spots and scarring. I find that it covers my dark circles well but is quite drying for that area, plus it creases (but I haven't found a concealer that doesn't do that yet). Make sure you moisturize very well before using. I don't notice a particular scent with my concealer.
I honestly think the glass tube packaging sucks. I've actually had the packaging crack, yikes! Be careful if you are packing this for travel. I wouldn't repurchase this, since there are much better liquid concealers out there and pot concealers will give more coverage if that's what you're looking for. I suppose this can work well in a pinch if you're tight on money though.

Okay, so I bought this concealer for one reason only. I have really fair skin, and this concealer was the only one I found that actually matched. So I thought I would give this a try!
The first thing I noticed was the scent, it's got this really strong perfume smell that I just don't stand. Luckaly the smell fades quickly after putting it on!
Now to the acutal concealer. The consistency is quite thick, and is hard to blend into your skin. It also tend to look cakey if you take to much. But, it does cover up real good, pimples, dark cirkles, and scars almost disappears!
I hate the packaging, and it's not really as much product as you think. I don't really think this concealer was worth the money! But if you don't mind that it's scented, thick, and expensive, maybe this is the product for you!

This concealer covers quite well, although I do experience creasing in the undereye area. Great colour match for my skin. Was very happy, until about two days of use, when my skin broke out very badly. Am still trying to get my skin under control. That's the only reason I wouldn't buy this again. I love the packaging; the wand is very user friendly, and the formula is lovely and creamy, but a concealer that makes me break out so badly kind of defeats the purpose.

This is my first face product from Nyx, and I certainly don't hate it but I don't love it. My elf tone correcting concealer does better and it is only one dollar. I bought this last minute, because I swatched it on my hand and saw it was creamy. (I haven't owned a cream concealer.) When I got home, it didn't match my color, a tad bit pinker. The color in the container is not the color inside, which made me a bit disappointed. The way it covers can be cakey and you can see it, what i usually do is just get a sponge, wet it with some water, and where I applied the concealer, I'll just kind of stipple it there so it looks less cakey but still has coverage.

I have bought a lot of cheaper stuff than this that works a lot better. To me this comes out all gloppy and gross. It barely covers anything. Plus, it has kind of weird smell to it. I love other NYX stuff, but for me this is just a big FAIL. Definitely won't buy again.
UPDATE: I threw this in my drawer after this review, and came across it again last week. I was in a hurry so for the sake of time (and not having to dig through my drawer looking for another concealer), I used it to cover up under eye circles. BIG MISTAKE! The next day the skin under my eyes was so dried out and flakey. That's never happened before. Tried it again a few days later - same result! This is going in the trash!

I've never really used concealer prior to this but I tried out some stuff in Ulta and I thought it made me look so ashy and dry. However, when I tried this out, I loved it. It didn't feel sticky or fake on my skin, it feels like moisturized skin. It has awesome coverage but I recommend getting rid of dead skin on your face before applying this because it will color the dead skin making it obvious you're wearing concealer. However, I loved the product. I don't think the packaging is cheap. I don't know what everyone else is talking about but the glass tube and the plastic applicator is fine. The glass makes the tube sturdy and the plastic applicator just makes applying so much easier. It was $5.99 when I got it at Ulta so it wasn't a bad price.

A little goes a long way with this product. You only need a few dabs. The consistency is thick and creamy, but not greasy. I like that because the under eye area needs moisture. After blending it in the finish looks natural. I didn't experience any creasing. The packaging is cheap, but that's ok. I think I paid around $5 bucks for it. Great product for the price.

I think this is a hidden gem, I bought my second one a week or two ago. It lasted me three months prior to my new one! It's creamy, easy to blend, and has great coverage. It doesn't crease, and it truly sticks. I also haven't broken out from it. The packaging is kind of cheap, but it's what's inside the bottle that matters.
Over all, this will forever be my concealer.

I've tried SO many concealers for my bad undereye circles and this works wonders for me. It is really thick and a little goes a long, long way. I noticed that some reviewers said it's actually too thick, and I think it's all about the way you apply it. I don't swipe the applicator across the eyes at all. Instead, I VERY gently touch the tip of the applicator to my undereye area 4 or 5 times and use my ring finger to pat it in. It is so thick you don't really need more than that, and I could see how adding more could get messy and go into fine lines and wrinkles or look fake. I got it in ivory which is VERY light, but it's perfect for me to cover up the darkness. The only complaint I have about it is that it smells really bad...it's a really cheap flowerly,chemical-ly scent of some sort. It fades after a couple mins though, so I don't mind that much. I'm also very impressed with how long this lasts. Definitely worth the money, especially since it's so cheap!

This is an extremely thick concealer, which is a good thing. It helps with covering unwanted blemishes and such. It is also creamy and not very watery like some of my past concealers. Overall, it provides good coverage, I haven't noticed a smell or anything and when not applied to heavily, it isn't cakey or anything. It's pretty good, and for the price, you can't go wrong. I got it for 3.60 US. Definitely a deal!

I bought this as an undereye concealer as i wanted something more creamy than my mac studiofinish.
First of all this smells really odd and chemically BUT it is amazing. It lasts and lasts and has amazing coverage, even better than my mac concealer i think. i wear so much less foundation and i will definetly be stocking up!
