For those who have angry red blemishes like me then concealer is a gift sent from the heavens. Over the years I have tried to conceal cystic acne, blemishes, and even burns on my face (I thank Burt’s Bees for that one).
When NYX first came to Shopper’s Drug Mart in March 2016 I went out and grabbed a few of the cult favourites. This included their bestselling HD Photogenic Concealer.
The HD Photogenic Concealer retails for $4.99 CAD at Shoppers’ Drug Mart. Most of the lighter shades are sold out when trying to purchase them.
At the time colour correcting was just breaking onto the market in a big way. So I decided to get the green concealer. There was more curiosity to see if green actually cancelled out the redness that inflamed my face.
This product is pretty damn amazing. I would say its easily comparable to NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. When doing application a LITTLE goes a long way and it does effectively cancel out redness. It does stay on all day and does not fade on my combination skin.
However the one flaw I found this product to have was it does cling to dry patches and scabs. I also found when applied under foundation it did make the foundation look more pigmented.
This is a good cheap purchase for someone starting out in the makeup world.
