Most Helpful Positive Review Good Concealer - Not Great
*I received this free in exchange for my honest opinion.* There is nothing inherently wrong with this product. For someone seeking a sheer coverage concealer, this is perfect. However, I fail to see the glowy aspect of this, which is the main marketing push.
I typically use Kat Von D's Lock It concealer, which I believe is a medium to full coverage formula, so this was underwhelming to me. I have a slight blue/purple tinge under my eyes and one pass was not enough hide it entirely, I definitely needed to build up coverage - which, I do believe their marketing refers to this as buildable, so they are not dishonest in that regard. As a preference though, I prefer a one pass product.
As I mentioned above, I did not see much glow to this product. I usually set my under eye concealer with an hourglass ambient powder for that glowy effect, and I most definitely still had to use it over this concealer, because on its own it just looked like regular concealer.
Compared to high end sheer concealers, I find this product to be on par with the best. It does work well over blemishes, it blends really nicely into the skin, and it doesn't give that cakey appearance.
Most Helpful Critical Review Its good but...
I went to Ulta the other day looking for a new affordable concealer, I use Tarte's Shape Tape and as you know it can be kinda pricey. I spotted this and decided to give it a try. Pretty much this product depends on who is wearing it and how they like their makeup to be. Anyways I went home and decided to try it on. 1: It looked pretty cakey, now i dont use foundation because i feel like it doesnt work for me and it makes me break out, with Tarte's shape tape I could use a small amount of product and it would look like my natural skin which I love! With this product i tried usuing a little but it made my skin look greasy evern after setting it, and it looked cakey and it was pretty heavy on the face. Not only that but it can be somewhat sheer even after building it up which just made it feel heavier on problem areas such as dark spots, eyebags, etc. Now I do really like the applicator on this, im a sucker for aplicators like this one, just be careful when squeezing because alot and i mean ALOT! can come out. Now if you're a person who loves to wear foundation with a good amount of concealer and like the dewy look this is definitely for you or if you have super dry skin. I'd just recommend being careful about the amount you use since a little goes a long way!

I am super picky with concealer and none of NYX complexion products have done it for me in the past- until now. I use this with the Colourpop pretty fresh concealer which is hydrating and put this on top for my under eyes, perfection! Great coverage without looking cakey or dry! It works perfectly on blemishes too, let it sit for 30 seconds before blending and you get the ultimate coverage! Hate the sponge tip, but I just remove it anyways.

I really like using this in combination with the glossier stretch concealer. My under eyes are pretty dry, so I use the stretch concealer to hydrate and correct since it has minimal coverage and then use this to brighten and add more coverage, then follow with a basic powder. Someone left a review saying there seemed to be glitter, but I haven't noticed an issue with that. Overall, really nice!
A New "Go To" Product in My Makeup Bag
QueBee from Jonesboro, AR
I bought the Born To Glow foundation and fell in love with the formula. It blends and wears so well on my skin type. I had been using the Can't Stop Won't Stop concealer and wanted this formula for its hydrating properties. I was hooked from day one. I host video interviews for my podcast and wanted a concealer that would not show out under the bright lights. I tried to pick a color close to my foundation. This shade is not too yellow and gives me just the right amount of coverage. I use it on top of my foundation. I love how it dries down and blends out. I must note that I use a color correcting shade under my foundation. I don't use powder because I have aging skin. But I really feel like I don't need it. This formula sets fairly matte without drying my under eye skin out. This will be a staple in my makeup bag.

I've been using this all the time. It blends out great and doesn't cake or come off with wet blending sponge. It's a great concealer for contouring and brightening . Def worth the buy.

I made sure I moisturized first and then applied this spongy wonder starting at the inside corners of my eyes and worked down into the baggage area. It went on light enough so there was no caking or settling into the deep creases of my wise old wrinkles. LOVE it.
An average product
Shramana from KY
I did not feel the concealer to be as creamy or radiant as described. It is lightweight, light to medium coverage but does not blend out smoothly on my skin. It looks separated under the eyes and does not look moist or creamy at all. I do have dry skin, so I always apply makeup products after thoroughly prepping my face with hydrating serum and moisturizer. I did not feel it dried out my under-eye area but the product itself felt dull and dry. I liked Nyx born to glow radiant concealer more than this.
Good for all day
Kacey from Portland
It works all day and does not make you feel like you are wearing foundation.
My new go to concealer
Nei from South Carolina
I love love love this concealer. Definitely my go to. And the price is so reasonable.
Good formula but has many negatives :/
Sarah from CA
So I LOVE the formula and the way it blends, etc. However! The "light diffusing particles" are literally glitter. Like its not super noticeable but if you look in a mirror or its super sunny out you will see little specks of literal glitter. I was not excepting that from a concealer. Besides that I loved the formula but the glitter is a real issue for me.
Nice coverage, hydrating look and feel 👍
Evo from Arizona
purchased this on a whim and I actually enjoy it. Uts hydrating so it's great for under the eyes but doesn't look greasy if set in fine lines. Sets well with powder and the color range was awesome. I could live without the puff but overall a great concealer.
Ashley from Chicago
Love it, makes my under eyes look smooth and bright!
Yes, I would buy this products again

Great for dry skin
Shelbidiah from Charleston SC
It's been so difficult trying to find the right formula for my dry skin. I've also struggled the last few years with acne. I love this. I love it I love it I love it. I can't rave enough about it.
Shelbyh from undisclosed
I really loved the color pay off of this product. It set so easily under my eyes, and lasted an entire day in the heat. However as the days have progressed the applicator has been harder and harder to use. I've had the product for less than a week and the bottle already feels significantly empty. Hopefully I can find a close color in another NYX concealer with a different application tool.

their lightest shade is too dark for my undereyes.
It Does Its Job, but...
FutureMisery from Corona, CA
First off, this product does help lighten my dark circles and the sponge is very soft and not stiff at all so it definitely helps to spread/smear the product. Downside to it though is because it smears the product, wherever you swipe the sponge at, product will keep coming out (sorta like if the sponge absorbs too much of it). Perhaps I should tap instead of swipe, but it was hard to blend out wherever I placed the concealer because more and more would come out. I would recommend having a beauty blender sponge on hand (damp, btw) to blend the concealer out because the sponge connected to the tube isn't going to help with blending it out.
This is the best for under eyes brightening

I make a upside down triangle under each eye and use a blender sponge or brush, instantly brightens and conceals

Nice under eye concealer
Taylor09 from Georgia
I have combo-oily skin but like a more hydrated, radiant makeup base so decided to give this a try. It makes my under eyes look hydrated without feeling too heavy or oily. I don't have super dark under eyes, but I do have some darkness and veins and this covers them very nicely.
Shade, formula, price...win!
Lakeparknorth from Milwaukee
You can't beat the price for what you get in this product. I normally buy the more expensive lines of makeup. Without being able to try anything (thanks Covid) I decided to gamble on this concealer. I bought the Beige, matches my light/med skin tone. It conceals and brightens without settling in fine lines or looking cakey. I will buy a few more to stock up. Also love the sponge applicator.
I would continue to buy this product.
Shelly from Los Angeles California
I use this concealer for under eyes. It is a fantastic concealer and proved to be better then any concealer ive used in The past 11 years!
I would definitely purchase this product again!
Queen Julez from Fresno, CA
I have no complaints about this product. Since I am starting to grow my makeup collections because I like to keep it at a minimum. Overall I love this product.
Neen421 from Chicago, IL
Been on the hunt for a better, less messy concealer than shape tape. I love this applicator, way easier. It totally gives me a little glow and helps contour like shape tape does. It lasts better too!
Simply excellent, especially for the price!
Cora from Lafayette, IN
Put this on for a night out of town, ended up drinking a few too many and crying at the bar. Woke up the next morning (after not washing my face, remind yourself of the evening I had lol) and this stuff was still in place even after not powdering. Lovely shade. No creasing on my typically creasy as all get out undereyes!! New fave concealer!
Great coverup especially for aging skin
Pickles from Georgia
Love the consistency. No cons at all
