Product Review:

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.
