Nicka K HD Concealer | Light Brown & Coyote

Nicka K HD Concealer  Light Brown & Coyote
A $1.99 concealer that promises to instantly cover imperfections? Count me in. I saw this concealer in a youtube haul and the youtuber said she liked this and that its a dupe of the LA Girl HD Concealer which is also a dupe of MAC Prolongwear concealer. I've tried a few Nicka K products before but I have never tried any of their face products. I was intrigued by this concealer's claims.

Nicka K HD Concealer Light Brown & Coyote review

This concealer has a brush tip applicator just like the LA Girl Pro HD Concealer. I'm not a huge fan of brush tip applicators because they can get bacteria since its in constant contact with the skin. The packaging is long and slim and it brings 0.51 fl oz of product. As the swatches online were awful and somewhat misleading since most of the shades looked the same to me I ended up settling for Coyote and Light Brown in the hopes that one of those two shades would match me.
Nicka K HD Concealer Light Brown & Coyote review nc42

For reference, I am NC 42 in Mac and I like NC42 concealers as I am not a fan of the "three shades lighter gotta highlight" concealer club. I like concealers that cover up my dark red under eye circles and that don't settle into fine lines. I find that Light Brown is a great match for NC 42. Consistency-wise it is very similar to LA Girl Pro HD Concealer in that it is very creamy and it blends well. This concealer is medium to full coverage and it does not settle into the fine lines under my eyes. I do notice that this concealer does somewhat fade during the day- around 10 hours of wear but it is not very noticeable. Setting it with powder helps keep the concealer in place.
Here is a pic with the concealer on. It definitely covers my undereyes but I feel as though it does not brighten my undereyes. I understand why it doesn't since its basically the same color as my foundation but I feel like the Mac concealer does give a slight brightening effect. Anyway, I really do like this concealer; this concealer does its job well and its so inexpensive. If I desire more color correcting for my undereyes I'll just resort to using a corrector underneath this concealer. I definitely recommend this concealer.
Have you tried this concealer before?
