NYX Can't Stop Won't Stop Contour Concealer

A few months ago I reviewed NYX's Can't Stop Won't Stop Full Coverage Foundation, but did you know that the brand also launched a concealer with the same name? Available in 24 shades, the Can't Stop Won't Stop Contour Concealer provides full coverage with a matte finish and is said to last up to 24 hours!

I have to admit, I didn't think I would love this concealer as much as I do. But I was wrong, the formula is even better than some of the high end concealers I've tried!

This product doesn't feel thick or heavy on the skin, the coverage is impressive for such a thin consistency! It provides medium to full coverage and has a satin finish (or more luminous if you use an eye cream with it).

It doesn't dry out my skin either!

This concealer is self-setting, but I always add a bit of loose powder because I'm a creature of habit.

It lasts all day and the creasing is minimal. It's quite surprising how well it lasts on me!!

And when NYX says the formula is waterproof, they aren't kidding. It doesn't want to come off with my micellar water, I can only remove it completely with an oil-based makeup remover.

By the way, it doesn't oxidize on me but it dries darker on my skin after a few minutes. When I'm not self-tanning, my skin is a bit lighter than NC15 and I use the shade 04 Light Ivory. When I'm tan (similar to NC30), I mix the shades 06 Vanilla and 07 Natural.

In comparison to L'Oréal's new Full Wear concealer, the Can't Stop Won't Stop concealer is slightly less opaque and the formula feels a bit more hydrating.

I prefer the coverage of the L'Oréal concealer but the formula is a bit dry (I need to use an eye cream with this one), while the NYX concealer is less prone to creasing but it doesn't completely cover the blue vein under my eye.

Both concealers are amazing in their own way, it all depends on what you prefer in a concealer!
