I bought the NYX concealer in green, since it had such
a great price point for any color adjuster, hoping that it would tone down the
red on my cheeks caused by rosacea. The packaging was simple but did not
contain a seal, so make sure it hasn’t been tampered with before applying. As
with most NYX products there is no distinct odor or chemical smell and the
texture was tacky and a bit on the oily side. It went on smooth which was a big
plus and a little goes a long way.
I love NYX products but with most relationships you
take the good with the bad. Although this was the first adjuster to actually
work on toning down the red tremendously it still fell short. Even with proper
blending (I found using my fingertips worked best) it settled into the large
pores even with use of a primer. It also smeared over a period of time mixing
with the makeup I applied and natural oils creating a mess.
If you are going natural and looking to tone down the
red this is the product for you. Those with normal to dry and blemish free skin
will enjoy using this concealer. But if you have oily skin or have a full
coverage makeup routine especially in the summer you may want to think twice.
