I'm loving exploring the NYX makeup range, being able to get it in the UK still feels a bit novel for me, especially as my local Boots doesn't have a stand. Choosing products has been mostly about listening in to other people's conversations (thanks to the girls shopping on Princes Street, Edinburgh) and picking out my favourite types of products to use. One of my absolute essentials is concealer and NYX had 6 different concealers. I struggle with under eye circles so the obvious choice was the NYX Dark Circle Concealer. The straight-forward name actually made this something worth picking up.
It's a cream concealer with coconut oil to add moisture, orange pigment to counteract dark circles and skin-tone pigments to provide coverage. It's a lovely, creamy concealer and though some people say it's hard to get the shade right with the orange pigment added in I feel like I made the perfect choice. This does such a good job at cancelling out any blue or purple under my eyes. It's quite creamy but doesn't seem to crease or dry out, thanks to the coconut oil. If I'm in a bit of a rush I can get away with using this as my only face concealer but it also works well in partnership with other concealers. This is also quite a good concealer to layer up if you're looking for a full coverage.
The worst bit for me is the pot packaging. I've got long nails so getting this concealer out is a nightmare. I have to use a makeup brush which takes a bit more work to get right. I suppose that's the downside to a cream concealer but a shallower pot would help with this long nail problem.
