Review: NARS- Radiant Creamy Concealer

Leave a Comment

Hey everyone,

I have had this concealer for a couple of months, so it has well and truly been road tested. There has been a lot of hype around this product- and it really does live up to it.
There are 10 shades available, so it's a fair bet that your shade will be covered. My shade is 'Custard - Medium 1' which is a yellow toned concealer for fair to medium complexions. I had to do a lot of research online to make sure I got the correct shade, as the nearest NARS counter is over 100 miles away from me (yep, I really do live in the middle of nowhere!). The match is absolutely perfect- so I got lucky. The finish is quite glowy without looking sweaty, and if used with the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation, the results are flawless.
The packaging is sleek, with the NARS signature matte lid, and the clear tube means at least you can see when you're getting low. The downside to this, is the £21.00 price tag- which, for a concealer is pretty extortionate, would I say it was worth it? HELL YEAH!
The coverage is definitely medium, and if you needed slightly more coverage, it definitely is buildable without looking cakey. Even though its a higher coverage, it doesn't at all look or feel it. I use it on any blemishes, around my nose, and a small amount under my eyes. I blend it in with my deluxe crease brush from Real Techniques (THE best concealer brush ever)- and away I go.
It claims to be long wearing and crease-proof, the first I definitely agree with, but I would say it is 70% crease-proof. Sometimes, if it is a hot day, it does crease a little but its easily blendable to even things out again with a warm finger.
This concealer is paraben-free, alcohol free, synthetic fragrance free and non commedogenic. So its perfect for those with sensitive skin that don't want to miss out, or are worried they may react.
I would definitely buy this again and again, but if you like a more inexpensive concealer, a dupe for this is the Maybelline Fit Me concealer. Or failing that- the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer is amazing too.
I adore this concealer, and if you're looking to splurge- I can't speak highly enough of this.
Have you tried this concealer? What are your thoughts? Why not tweet me @amiisteward or comment below :-)
