Can't Stop Won't Stop is a bestseller in the NYX Professional Makeup portfolio. This tool is ultra-resistant and also multifunctional.

Firstly, it perfectly masks all skin imperfections, whether it be pimples, post-acne red spots or dark circles under the eyes (this is clearly visible in the photo).

Second, Can't Stop Won't Stop Liquid Concealer can be used to sculpt your face. To do this, you need to take two shades, light and dark, apply them along certain lines (how to do it right, we wrote here) and carefully shade the borders. The texture of the concealer is dense, but very plastic, lends itself well to shading. It is especially convenient to perform nose sculpting with concealer, as the small applicator allows you to evenly draw thin lines along the back of the nose.

It should be noted that sculpting done with cream textures looks more natural and beautiful when properly blended.

Thirdly, the Can't Stop Won't Stop concealer contains shimmery particles that give the skin a slight glow and scatter light. And of course, it can be used as a highlighter, applying to the areas under the eyebrows, on the checkmark of the upper lip and the bridge of the nose.

  • Don't use oily concealers, they tend to roll off quickly.

  • So that the concealer does not clog into wrinkles, it is advisable to mix it with a makeup base.

  • Draw an inverted triangle with concealer under your eyes - this is the most successful application technique.
