I am a concealer junkie(see post for my concealers' comparison). I have tried so many concealers and there are ones better for covering blemishes and redness and others for under eye area.
I have been using Graftobian corrector palette for almost 2 years now. I use mainly two shades to mix the right shade of salmon to cover my dark under eye area before applying other concealers.
As much as I love Graftobian, as it is the creamiest and easiest to blend for under eye area, the product is not easily accessible. So I have been looking around and saw NYX dark circle concealer at Target at $7.99.
There are 5 shades available and I got DCC02 Light.
Top: Graftobian Corrector Palette
Bottom: NYX Dark Circle Concealer
Left: Soft Orange(Graftobian)
Middle: NYX DCC02 Light
Right: Pink Hi-Lite(Graftobian)
I would say NYX light is between the two shades I use from the Graftobian Corrector Palette. The texture is very comparable. Only the NYX is not as creamy as the Graftobian one. Since I usually mix the Soft Orange and Pink Hi-Lite shades together all the time, NYX 002 looks like it is dead on when I mix the shades together.
First impression of NYX dark circle concealer: since I am so used to using a creamy corrector from Graftobian and apply with a concealer to help blend easier, I find best to apply the NYX one is to use fingertips. Just dab it on and use a sponge/beauty blender to help blend it in. I have only used it a few times and it hasn't creased on me. I have the habit of always setting my under eye concealer with a powder so maybe that helps a lot. The shade is a bit too light for my purpose. I think a shade darker and more salmon would suit better. But the Target I went to were out of the shade.
Have you tried NYX dark circle concealer? What is your favorite under eye concealer?
