On the Right: NYX Gotcha Covered Concealer

Here’s my review on NYX Gotcha Covered Concealer! Next time, I’ll do a review on NYX Worth the Hype Volumizing & Lengthening Mascara. πŸ™‚ So, I’ve been usingΒ NYX Gotcha Covered Concealer for about 8+ months. I have the one in Ivory. I like the color. It blends into my skin tone and brightens it up on the spot. Loveeee!! The consistency of the concealer is thick and creamy. Even though it takes on that texture, it doesn’t provide much coverage. I would think that it would! Nope! It does a poor job at covering pimples and dark under eye circles. Whenever I apply it to my skin, I have to layer it on multiple times to get some coverage. In the end, very poor coverage. I’m left with nothing. The reason why I still use it is because I have it. I’m not big on buying more makeup products when I don’t have to. I would much rather use up what I have. 😜 If you’re looking for a full-coverage concealer that covers discolorations and imperfections, this isn’t it.

NYX Gotcha Covered Concealer does leave a nice dewy finish on the skin. I have oily skin, and I didn’t have a problem with that. Also, it didn’t cause my skin to break out in acne either, which is surprising. Sadly, even though it is infused with coconut oil for moisture, using this concealer on my face was a nightmare. It crept into every fine line, wrinkle and accentuated them like no other. I’m not liking it whatsoever. Is this concealer waterproof? Well, I can tell you that I swam in the ocean in Hawaii to test it out. No, it is not waterproof, lol. From this lengthy experience, I’m not impressed. On the bright side, it’s a cheap concealer that seems to last forever, haha. I still have a lot of product left!Β  But, I will not repurchase in the future. I would like a concealer that provides coverage, especially for dark under eye circles. I would also like a concealer that doesn’t accentuate fine lines and wrinkles!

What is North Shore?

You’ve already been introduced to parts of the North Shore in Hawaii — Waimea Bay and Laniakea Beach. But what is the North Shore exactly? The North Shore is a laid-back beach town at the northernmost point of Oahu (see map below). Think gorgeous beautiful beaches, gigantic untamed waves, and professional surfing!

Location:

North Shore. Oahu. Hawaii. Hale’iwa is the most popular North Shore town.

I love this picture. Peaceful, quietness, in the middle of nowhere.

There’s lots of food trucks and shaved ice here, so off we went to find Giovanni’s Shrimp Truck! Not for me, of course. πŸ˜‹

I’m feeling that laid-back beach, surfer atmosphere. It’s a whole different environment compared to the touristy Waikiki. I enjoyed my time here. Let’s come back when the sun is out. I want to feel the sunshine on my face on the North Shore. 🌞

Goodbye North Shore *waves*

Awesome place to be if you love being at the ocean, to surf, hangout with friends, and be chill. There’s nowhere else I would rather be than the North Shore in Hawaii. ❀ Have you been to the North Shore in Hawaii? How did you like it?

Travel Tips:

  1. Small roads and small parking lots.
