Hi girls,

NYX finally launched in India and among their huge range I only picked this Gotcha Covered Concealer. I have two different opinions about this concealer. It has one good side and one bad side. Read on to know how it works on my oily skin.

My Experience with NYX Gotcha Covered Concealer:

The product comes in a pretty black squeeze tube with a black cap. It has a small dispenser that provides perfect amount of product. I love this cute tube and it is an affordable concealer as well.

In India it comes only in two shades and I have the shade Medium. It is nice warm highlighting shade for my skin tone. But there is no shade for dusky beauties. Indian people have various skin tones so they need a wider shade range. This is really sad about this product. But I am happy with the particular shade for my skin tone.

It has a super creamy glossy texture and it contains coconut oil in it. That’s why it looks and feels like an oil based concealer but glides smoothly on skin. It feels heavy and sticky also. If I apply it with finger or brush then it looks little odd and not smooth, so I prefer to apply it with a sponge. Sponge also helps to absorb excess oil and it looks smoother on skin. It makes skin smooth, soft and provides a glossy tinted finish. This concealer needs to be set with a compact powder; otherwise it makes skin super oily. But it never feels patchy or dry. This is really good for dry skin. Only a tiny amount of product is required each time; excess amount might look cakey. This is not a great one for oily skin or for summer at all.

But the most amazing part of this is the coverage. It provides that amazing full coverage that can totally hide my dark circles. It also hides my spots and any uneven skin tone. I am surprised with the coverage. Maybe it feels super oily but it gives the best coverage. Problem is the texture only; if I apply it just below my eyes then it settles in the baby fine lines within few hours. So to avoid this problem I mostly prefer to apply this little below my eyes and apply a good matte concealer right below my eyes; this way it works better. I also avoid applying this on my eye lid; it easily creases and settles in one place. So it is better to use it as a highlighting concealer.

It stays on skin for so long but during the day it looks shiny after a few hours; I need to blot the excess oil. It transfers little but as the coverage is so high so it never moves from its place. At the end of the day my skin still looks even.

Overall I have two different opinions about this concealer. On one hand I am just blown away with its full coverage, on the other I am feeling sad for its super oily greasy texture. But I can manage the problem with a good primer and translucent powder; but I can’t wear it during hot summer days.

Will I Repurchase/Recommend NYX Gotcha Covered Concealer?
Not exactly sure, it feels oily on my oily skin. If you have oily skin and hate that greasiness just skip this one. But if you have super dry skin and want a full coverage then you can try this.

  1. Hi Chayanti,
    I bought this concealer a few weeks back and I am just not able to use it satisfactorily. I see the issue with settling into lines too. Great review!

    1. Exactly Shweta, apply it with a sponge beauty blender and try to avoid those area where it has chances of creasing. Or Use the baking technique. It helps me. Otherwise I really like the coverage.. 🙂
