Most Helpful Positive Review Pretty nice!
I was very surprised at how much I loved this concealer! I had been using the LA Girl concealer during the summer and realized it was too dark for me come fall and winter, so I tried the Makeup Revolution one but it didn't have a light enough one with the right undertone for me (I have very yellow undertones) so I tried the lightest shade of this NYX concealer and I was shocked . . . . IT WAS TOO LIGHT FOR ME. I found my correct shade and have been in love ever since.
It dries fairly quickly (like how the Fenty foundation does) so I typically blend it with a brush and then a sponge since I'm a slow blender lol. I have pretty normal skin with occasional oiliness and dryness according to the weather, but it still drys very quick on me. I recommend wearing a good moisturizer underneath so the product can be blended easier and doesn't feel so dry.
It forces me to moisturize more (which is good for me since I forget to in the mornings because tiredness) and has a great shade range for paler people (I can't comment on the deeper shades since I'm pasty) with cool, neutral, and warm undertones in very light shades!
I recommend this product to everybody looking for a new concealer
Most Helpful Critical Review Not my taste
If you like the colourpop concealer, chances are you'll like this one too. I'm definitely in the minority with not liking it. Shade range is alright. I got light ivory, it is too yellow for my but the lighter shades are too pale & the darker ones are too dark. This looks so drying in me!! It dries down very fast so you have to apply it as you go, which is fine. But it settles in my fine lines so badly. I use a corrector & a very light hand with setting powder. This just doesn't work on my. It accentuates my lines so badly. It bunches up in my creases & pulls the powder into them. Just gross & heavy & dry looking. I've tried using only this with not setting it & it still looks so dry! I can't explain it. I'm only 28 but I do have fine lines. Most days I only wear concealer so I like it to work well for me & have good coverage. This didn't have full coverage even with my corrector. Idk. Just not for me. I still love the power play concealer. I have yet to find a drugstore concealer that has great coverage & helps to Camouflage my fine lines & wrinkles. People say this is a dupe for shape Tape. Um. No. Not for me. Shape Tape i can manipulate & make it work & look great. This nyx one. No thank you.

It isn't a smooth finish. I couldn't get it to bend in seamlessly
I would not buy this product again

This oxidized so badly on face. I literally looked like a orange
Amazing, just DON'T set it
Janelly from Miami
I use this concealer as an under eye highlight after eye cream ,and the key is to not set it with powder. It's already extremely matte so you don't need to! Setting it with powder will make it look dry and cakey. I blend it in with my fingers and I get the most gorgeous highlighted natural yet flawless looking under eye. I'm also 19, so I'm not sure how my method will work on older skin.
Light as it gets

I'm extremely pale, like when I'm in direct sunlight my skin almost glows and THIS is a tad light on me. Love nyx, its buildable and its cheap for the quality.
TERRIBLE for covering acne/hyperpigmentation
Allie from New York
Let me start by saying I NEVER leave reviews for products. The fact that I'm leaving this review says a lot. Buckle in, kiddos. I bought the shade Medium Olive after I ran out of my Maybelline Fit Me concealer in Medium. Well honey let me tell YOU. This is NOT a substitute. Not. At. All. It's actually great for the under eyes, so if you're looking to cover discoloration under your eyes, I would actually recommend this. But if you're like me and are trying to cover your red acne or purple hyperpigmentation, this ain't it, sis. After applying probably six layers to the same acne spot, it gave MINIMAL coverage. It blends out into nothing and doesn't even BEGIN to touch my hyperpigmentation. Very disappointed and will be returning. I wanted to give it 1 star, but left 3 since it performed so well in my undereye area.
I would buy this again.

I like this concealer a lot. It doesn't crease under my eyes and that was a problem before. Good coverage!
Felicia from TX
Bought this product outta good reviews, and I can't complain, it's nice and does it's job, I love how it lightens up under my eyes, chin, and middle of my forehead!
Always my go to concealer
Poptart from Lafayette LA
I use this product under my eyes. It is thick so you don't need much!
Broke me out all over &THICK/hard to blend under eye. Drying
Laeli from Houston
Mostly use for under eye. Tried it out on other parts of face I occasionally need to smooth out and now I have pimples everywhere. Only used it one day. It was VERY hard to blend in under my eye- left residue as it was super fast to dry- almost tacky feeling. Felt heavier than the concealer I'm used to. Returned it.
T.A. from Washington, D.C.
I got the shade fair in this concealer since I am very fair with cool undertones (for reference, I am 110 in Fenty and 0.5 in Makeup Revolution). It still was very, very yellow once I applied it but once blended out it looked nice and actually helped to cancel out my purple undereye bags. It's definitely a medium, not full coverage concealer, but it lasted throughout the day and overall I'd recommend.

I can't believe this inexpensive concealer is so good. Medium coverage but you can totally build up for better coverage.

I got a color too dark and it turned orange
Medium coverage but you can build

I use it mostly under my foundation in dots to cover any dark spots, but mainly on my eyelids. Colors like yellow don't show up very brightly on me but with this concealer it looks a lot better!

First time ordering and do not like it very much. It is hard to blend and really thick. Great for eyebrows and eyeshadow primer though
This is a drugstore gem! My new holy grail
Nessa from Miami, florida
Normally, I really hate trying new concealers (drugstore or high end) because it's really difficult for me to find a concealer that not only matches my skin color perfectly, but doesn't crease or accentuate the texture of my skin. The concealer i was using before matched my skin color well but I felt like it still didn't make my skin or under eyes look that great. I tried this concealer at my friends house and was totally blown away! It has a thin, smooth texture and once it's blended in it looks like skin. I have a lot of texture from acne and scars on my face and I usually hate putting concealer over it because most concealers will attach to the flakes and accentuate it even more, but this concealer was really smooth and just glided on. Over the areas where I have severe hyperpigmentation I did layer the concealer and found it builds really well without separating or getting heavy. I wouldn't say it has a really matte finish it really truly looks like healthy skin (not dewy or shiny at all). I feel like you can wear this concealer without wearing powder but I always powder a little bit over the areas I have acne. Even in the under eye area I didn't feel like I was wearing makeup and it lasted way longer than any high end concealer I have. I used a wet sponge to apply. I will buy this concealer over and over again, and may even buy a lighter shade for highlighting! The only con I could think of is that the concealer sets rather quickly if you're not using a wet sponge.
Great product for the price
Jasmine from Texas
This product was really great a little goes a long way with this at first I put a bunch just to test it out and it almost cover my entire face all tan so then I just used a few dots to contour and it worked perfect it was very creamy and easy to apply and love the way it made my contour look didn't smudge with my foundation just blend it in great would totally recommend
I. am. OBSESSED!!
Haley from Idaho
I'm obsessed. I have really pale skin with a yellow undertone, so it's really difficult to find a concealer for me that conceals AND brightens. Ever since I saw Cara Brooks' blog about highlighting and contouring years ago, I've been on the hunt for that perfect concealer to "highlight". It's finally been found!! I got the shade "Pale" and it is perfect. It's got that yellow undertone to match my own skin tone AND cancel out those purple bags under my eyes that popped up as soon as I hit the second half of my 20s. This is creamy, totally full coverage, and non drying. I do use Becca's under eye brightener underneath, but I do that with all of my concealers, so I've been able to compare them in the same situation. Love love love. And you can't beat the price!!!
Better than any other high end concealer
Amber from Seattle, WA
I've been looking for an under eye concealer that didn't make me look older and instantly crease, IT cosmetics, bare minerals, Maybelline, Tarte and this is the only one that didn't do that. It is a little drying which I think is unavoidable so it should be used sparingly on anyone, regardless of age or it will look aging (even on my tween)

Conceals well and also moisturizes well👍
I dropped mine in the sink, while it was open, so I immediately sat down and ordered another one♥️
Top Five go to Concealers
Neasha from New York
I love this product!!! Definitely my go to concealer!!! I have brought numerous concealers... down from the cheapest all the way to the most expensive and hands down Nyx's Cant stop wont stop have been my top 5!!! My skins is a combination of both!!! And Im a heavy sweater so this dry concealer actually works well with!! And Ive notice over time it starts to look better and better... I would say use a good Moisturizer like moisturizer like Ponds... and prime so it wont feel as dry!!!! But I do recommend this concealer..
Definitely worth it !
Blair from Charlotte, NC
I love this but I wish the applicator was bigger + more product! I feel like I fly threw these & my shade is always out in stores 🥺
tomadeupjazz from AZ
I LOVE this concealer. I use it along with the can't stop won't stop foundation in warm mahogany and setting powder in the shade banana. I have the color golden in the concealer. This highlights my undereyes and other places on my face since I don't really need to conceal anything and I love it for this. It does not crease or settle on me until LOOOOONG after it's time to take my makeup off and I can't complain about that. It dries and sets on it's own so if you don't have oily skin, or fine lines under your eyes you may not even need to set this. Idk if dry skin would like this concealer. It's not thick at all but it does dry down a LOT. Stays in place, wears flawlessly and tons of shades to choose from. I love this !!
Rosie from Texas
i'm dark skin so i use the darkest shade of this concealer to contour and i love it, blends really well with my fenty foundation and lasts quite a bit, the consistency is also nice and smooth which i rlly love and doesn't crease or look cakey but that might just be because i have a long prep routine and skincare routine before putting on makeup so it always look smooth
Creased like crazy
Mfb from Orlando, FL
I used it 3 times and threw it away. Really tried to give it a chance but wouldn't work. It creased every time I tried to blend it and would just get into my fine lines and dry.
