NYX Concealer In A Jar – Review, Swatches & Photos

 

 

Product Description
Our Full Coverage Concealer hides the villains of dark circles and blemishes with a vengeance. Available with an arsenal of shades and an advanced formula that provides long-lasting full coverage.

The NYC Concealer In A Jar is a prime example that paying more doesn’t always mean better. I have been using this concealer for about 6 years and although it’s a hit or miss with some people I still love it and it’s still a concealer I often recommend. The Concealer In A Jar is available in 12 shades, 8 flesh tone shades and 4 color correctors in Yellow, Green, Lavender and Orange.

Packaged in a small plastic jar the NYX Concealer in a jar offer medium to full coverage foundation. It feel creamy on my dry skin and dries down to a powder finish once it’s set.  Although it does feel creamy I would recommend applying a good moisturizer before application sine it does set to a powder finish.

 

Packaging
The concealer is packaged in a clear plastic jar that has a black screw cap. The packaging is thick and sturdy, it’s not bulky like a glass jar would be so it’s great for traveling. Of course since it does come in a jar it’s not as sanitary as a squeeze tube packaging would be.

Formula
This concealer has a grease paint like texture that is thick and applies smoothly and is easy to blend out. It feels super creamy and doesn’t feel drying. Since this concealer sets to a powder finish I would highly recommend applying  a good moisturizing cream underneath the eyes before hand.

Coverage
Considering this concealer retails for $5 I am impressed with the pigmentation and the ability it has to cover up my dark circles, especially paired with the orange color corrector. I apply the orange color corrector and then top it off with this concealer in the shade Beige. I don’t find this concealer accentuates my fine lines and wrinkles but I do apply a good moisturizer before hand.

Staying Power
This concealer lasts a good 4-5 hours on me which is pretty decent for it’ price. You might need to touch it up throughout the day depending on your skin type.

Beautetude Approved

If you are looking for an affordable concealer that hides blemishes or imperfections I would highly recommend giving this a try. The wide shade selection is very helpful and I love that NYX has color correctors in the same formula for a price you can't beat. This concealer doesn't settle into fine lines under my eyes and works well with my dry skin.
