If there’s any big surprise in the budget-friendly makeup category lately, it would definitely have to be the superior quality and coverage offered by the variety of NYX concealers. I’ve been extremely impressed by their Waterproof Concealer, HD Concealer, and now I’m bananas for NYX Above & Beyond Full Coverage Concealer in Glow.
This is $6 of amazing coverage right here, y’all, AND with a pink undertone. For those of us who battle under eye darkness and hyperpigmentation on the rest of our skin, that pink undertone is a MUST have.
NYX Above & Beyond reminds me an awful lot of MAC’s Studio Finish Concealers, which is what I’ve been using for years. If you’re trying to find a cruelty-free alternative to MAC, or you’re just looking for something a little lighter on your pocketboo, you’re more than in luck with NYX’s option, which is also a bit more emollient and easier to work with than MAC’s Studio Finish. Also, I found that NYX Above & Beyond has a tad more pink than MAC’s NW25, which was surprising to me.
I’m most impressed by how well NYX Above & Beyond helps cover my hyperpigmentation, which is fading a bit but still needs a little help in the concealing department.
My Final Thoughts: It was on a whim, but I’m sure glad I picked up a jar of NYX Above & Beyond Full Coverage Concealer on a recent trip to Ulta, because it’s rocking my concealer world! This offers beautiful, natural coverage and comes in a variety of skin tones and color correcting concerns.. It’s a win!
