NYX Concealer in a Jar – Orange and Yellow Review

NYX Concealer in a Jar

I have had awful luck with concealers, I am never able to find the perfect shade. Also depending on the weather and the sun, everyone’s skin color changes few months, so any one concealer does not guarantee concealment all year around. So taking inspiration from Mickey contractor’s duo concealer I got the NYX concealer in a jar in orange and yellow (Rs 475 each). It’s not the exact dupe, much light in color but in my opinion, works just fine. Also it’s not limited edition and the quantity in the jar is much more it seems. I read online it’s also a great dupe for the MAC Studio finish concealer.

The concealer comes in an array of colors, ranging from light flesh toned colors to dark colors, and lavender, yellow, orange and green for particular problem areas as correctors.

The consistency is not as creamy as the Mac duo one, but its decent creamy and will provide medium to full coverage. I was never much of a concealer person as I previously did not have too dark circles, but this just completely changed my mind. You start by applying orange with a concealer brush (or even a small flat eyeshadow brush might do the trick). The orange by itself might work for many of you, as it camouflages the green under our Indian skin tone. After that if you need it, you can pat the yellow concealers lightly and blend it to match your skin tone. I think after just 2-3 tries, anyone can figure out the right amount of each concealer to use. Otherwise another method would be to take an empty container and mix the two colors to achieve your perfect shade and keep it for daily use.

Swatch with two colors blended on the top (this is just my first try), orange and yellow :

To sum it up-

Pros of NYX Concealer in a Jar

-Easy to achieve your perfect shade.
-Good quantity, will probably last a year.
-Good price.
-The formula is creamy but not very runny nor very hard.
-Can be used all year around, even if your skin tone changes.

Cons of NYX Concealer in a Jar

-Needs a good brush.
-Need moisturizer before applying under the circles for perfect coverage.
-Does not have a wand( which is good for me since I actually find the wand unhygienic at times, since it can’t be washed after use).


I liked the concealers and it lives up to its good report. I can finally stop looking for the perfect concealer color. It can also be used to darken areas if you have light pigmentation on your skin. It all depends on the ratio of each color you use. I find it more hygienic than the wand since the wand tends to pick up color when you try to layer it on another color. For those who don’t own the duo concealer and want to experiment they can give this a try.

    1. I am liking this concept. You can work as per the change in your skin color. I hope some other brands also come up with this kinda product. I have Oriflame concealer brush Rati!! And I really like it a lotttttttt!! :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

        1. er….it is a bit thick, and kind of flat..it resembles a lot like a foundation brush, just that it is smaller in size.. And it is not very stiff but works quite well in applying and blending the concealer…and I like its handle too.. Since, my dark circles are reduced somehow now, I have started using the garnier roll on concealer under my eyes..I simply dab the roll on over the dark circles and use the concealer brush to mix and blend them..it works pretty well!! 😀 😀 😀 😀

            1. oh okay.. I have similar brush for Sigma. 😀 😀

              Btw very funny question…do you get this urge to sneeze after you have done your full makeup? 😛 😛

              Since two days I have been doing full makeup and I have been sneezing exactly after my makeup is done.. It’s so irritating :pissedoff: And then I sneeze in squeeky funny way do that I don’t mess up my eye makeup. :silly: :silly:

              I have no idea what I am talking about bt it’s very irritating..oh I somehow want to sneeze after I have just applied my mascara…and then i sneeze and my mascara is all over.. 😐 😐 😐

              1. 😐 😐 Thats a weird development…I think its because of the change of season…you already have a sensitive nose and I think because of pollens and everything, you have become hyper sensitive to external things like makeup!! 😛 😛 ,…Take some vicks inhaler and inhale well before putting on the makeup!!

                And I refuse to believe that poutmati can get allergic to makeup!! :smug: :suspense: :suspense: :suspense: :suspense: :suspense: :suspense: :suspense: !!!

                1. No I am not allergic to makeup. :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: I think it’s the change of season only. But it’s so funny. First I want to sneeze and then I want to laugh and then I get tears in my eyes and then I do funny action of tilting my head back , pressing my nose and taking my tears in…dont ask. Since two days I have been doing this drama. :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2:
