Today's post is on, you guessed it, NYX Gotcha Covered Waterproof Concealer. I picked these up because they were reasonably priced at right around $5.99 (if you shop through ebates you'll even get a % back!) I wanted to widen my selection of good quality concealers, because as we all know what works from some may not work for all. Since I am a Makeup Artist, it is my job to have a variety of products for people's different skin types and of course different skin tones. I picked up every color on the website ( I purchased mine at Bed Bath and Beyond and took advantage of ebates 2% cash back- looking forward to receiving that check in the mail). And as soon a I received them, like a kid on Christmas, I tore through the boxes and swatched them for you, for me, for everyone to see.

  This first picture is a swatching from light to dark in artificial lighting. Anyone who tells you that there isn't a difference between natural lighting and artificial lighting, please show them the picture below! From lightest to darkest:   (01) ivory, (02) light, (03) beige, (04) medium, (05) medium olive, (06) golden, (07) tan, (08) sand, (09) deep, (10) ebony .
This picture was taken in natural light and boy is there a difference! Lets talk about texture... These concealers are thick but blendable... #8 was a bit more oily and more runny than the rest of the concealers.. could be a slightly different formula or it could be because these concealers were brand new, never used, never opened. Think of a ketchup or mustard bottle the first time it's used in a while and that liquid comes out before the actual ketchup or mustard, that is what the #8 concealer came out like. Having said that, once I got past the liquid of #8, I really I love that they have a wide range of colors to choose from. At first swatch I thought I would be more of a level 3 or 4 but I am actually comfortable with #5. For reference in MAC Cosmetics I am typically an NW25-30 depending on the time of year and how tan I am. In Maybelline's fit me concealer I am 25-35 again, depending on my tan.

Here is a picture of my husband and I the first time I used this concealer in a real life makeup application. I grabbed #5 and applied it under my eyes. Keep in mind, I was tired from long weekend of celebrations. I had terrible allergies and within a few minutes of taking this picture I had a coughing fit with running eyes. My makeup didn't budge! Through the exhaustion, the allergies, the coughing and tearing eyes, my concealer did me well! I am happy to add these concealers into my makeup kit! xoErika
