I’ve been seeing pictures everywhere lately with people applying eye makeup on to their hands and I thought it was the coolest thing ever.
I decided to try it out and was so surprised with the results.
Here’s a list of the products I used to create this look:
Eye lashes: For the eyelashes I used the black liner from Sephora. It’s the the Mickey and Minnie Collection from Spring 2016.
Eyeshadow: For the eyeshadow I used the Naked Palette 3 from Urban Decay.
Outer Lid: Darkside and Mugshot
Brow Bone: Strange
Middle of the Lid: trick, dust, and buzz.
Concealer: I used my NYX HD Photogenic Concealer Wand in the shade C7. I used the concealer for the middle of the lid to really make the glitter pop.
Eyebrows: For the eyebrows I used the Revlon Eyebrow Pencil and to fill them in I used the brow powder from Annabelle.
Hi everyone! I’m so so excited to be reviewing this product for you guys. NYX is one of my favourite drugstore makeup brands so I was really excited to try out their concealers.
Before buying this product I heard amazing things about it so I was so excited to test it out for myself. I must admit I was pretty impressed with how well this concealer performed.
When I bought this concealer I was looking for something that would be able to highlight my eyebrows, and under eye.
This product retails for $8 at NYX, and it comes in many different shades.
I bought the colour CW 07: Tan and this is what the packaging looks like. I was impressed with how pretty the packaging is. It feels sturdy and looks like an high end concealer. If you guys own any of NYX’s liquid lipsticks from their Lingerie line, the packaging feels exactly the same. This concealer has 0.11/3g of product in it which is standard for a concealer.
I was impressed with how creamy the consistency is. It applies, and blends so easily. The concealer I owned before was difficult to blend because of how thick the consistency was but NYX definitely nailed it with this concealer.
I was a little disappointed with the colour. The lady at the NYX store suggested I got Tan because she said it would be great for highlighting. However, when this concealer is blended out it appears to be the same shade as my skin. I know this isn’t the concealer’s fault but next time I do purchase this product I’ll go a shade lighter. I find that the colour on the packaging is lighter then the product actually is.
This is what CW 07 looks like swatched on my hand
Overall, I give this product a 4.5/5. If the colour had worked for me it would have been perfect. This is definitely a product I will be buying in the future, and would recommend to others. If you guys are planning in buying this concealer, I would suggest to really pay attention to the colouring.
