Review | NYX HD Concealer Wand in Porcelain

A make-up routine is not completed without a concealer. I use it to cover up blemishes, scarring and dark circles. Since my other concealers, sadly, ran out I was on the hunt for a new one.
My eyes fell on a concealer from NYX. I have never really tried anything from NYX, so it seemed fun to explore this brand. I was contemplating between the HD Concealer Wand and the Concealer in a Jar. In the end I went with the HD Concealer Wand, since it's more hygienic and it's mend to give good coverage as well.

I ordered mine online so I had no idea if the colour was right for me. I went with the lightest colour they had, since I am very pale. The packaging is really nice and looks more expensive than it actually is. Now on to the product inside, since that is the most important part.

The concealer is a little bit lighter than my own skin. NC15 from MAC is also a bit too light, so I think the colour is most comparable to MAC NC15. When I blend it with my foundation the colour difference isn’t noticeable. For under the eyes it's perfect because you want to highlight your under eye area. So colour wise, it's a good match.
It has a super creamy consistency and it blends very well. The finish is semi-matte to satin. Since I have combination/oily skin I prefer a concealer that has more of a matte finish.
Coverage wise I have to say I am not very impressed. Yes, it does cover well, but I know other concealers that do a better job. I had to apply more than I normally do, which means it has almost ran out. I have been using this concealer for about six weeks and normally they last longer. I do really like the applicator of this concealer. 

Will I buy this concealer again? Probably not. It was nice to try it out and it does work well, but I want something with a bit more coverage. I am hoping that Collection will finally come to The Netherlands. I need to stock up on there Lasting Perfection Concealer ASAP. My hunt for the perfect concealer goes on and I will inform you every step of the way.

What is your favourite concealer?
