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.

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.
