My have oily/combination skin and found this concealer to be very drying. I tried using this under my eyes with with 2 different eye creams and alone and the result after a few hours were always the same - flaky, creasey mess. It looked like I had eye sand under my eyes and when I tried to blend it, the product would look worst.

I also tried it as a contour and it left my nose looking flaky / skin pealing effect.

I have now switched to It cosmetics bye bye under eye and love it!

Better than It Bye Bye Under Eye concealer that I own. It's more moisterizing, but sometimes it can be applied excessively because of the brush.

If applied with a light hand, this looks great on my NC 20 (maybe a bit lighter) skin - I have green eyes/blonde (sometimes strawberry blonde) hair.

It does emphasize pores, so I top off the cheek area closest to my nose with a very matte, very light pink shade, but just a dusting to disguise my pores.

I am cool-toned but this doesn't look too warm on me, which is always a concern. I can't use brown eye shadows or I look like a corpse - it hasn't been an issue with this shade.

Bought this last month out of recommendation of my co-worker for the oncoming Aussie summer. Gave me a rash and severe acne all over my face that took several weeks to go away. Last night, I did a patch test on the inside of my elbow, and sure enough, rash. Never going near this again. HOWEVER, the day I did wear it on my face, it applied beautifully, and made me look like a summer goddess, so theres that.

This is my best concealer, and I have re-purchased it many times. It blends out like a dream, and doesn't settle into any fine lines. However, it doesn't cover all of my dark circles - but nothing ever does, so I'm not too mad about it. I apply this under my eyes, and blend it out with a beauty-blender, before setting it with a loose setting powder.


Lip Gloss -NARS -Velvet Lip Glide

I have this in the red shade (a mini from a lipset of some kind I think) and I am not a fan. I don't think this formula is good for bright or dark colours. I think it was originally marketed as a moisturizing version of a liquid lipstick, "long lasting lip colour with a smooth semi-matte finish" is what the site says. I disagree. Quite a bit actually. Like this forum has categorized it, it's a glorified lip gloss. Sure it has a nice moisturizing feeling, but it is no way long lasting and it is not a semi-matte finish.. it's a glossy finish. I saw a youtuber once say, "if you want the matte finish just blot your lips with tissue". Well, duh? I feel like you could do that with the vast majority of my pigmented lip glosses and it would have the same effect. And those products aren't marketed as "semi-matte". Sometimes I really wonder about youtube.

Anyways, I do find the formula moisturizing and very smooth to apply. The applicator is a nice precise shape and makes it easy to apply with a good degree of precision, although that doesn't take into account that the bright formula bleeds after the fact so.. I guess you can't win them all.

I would think nudes would be nice in this formula, although from what I remember there weren't a lot in this collection. This is just an overpriced/over marketed lip gloss people. Nice formula but does not do what it claims. Definite pass and would not recommend at full price.

Pressed Powders -NARS -Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder

I figure I'd better put my 2 cents in on this product bc it was $37. I expected so much better for the money. First of all, as others have stated, I can't get any product up. I tried scraping off the top layer, using tape, using a dense powder brush, etc, but only a very tiny amount comes out. I can feel it on my skin too - it's drying. And I don't have dry skin - it's oily on the t-zone and normal everywhere else. After using this powder for several days, I now have dried out skin. My skin's dry on the t-zone area and wrinkled under my eyes where I put this powder to set my undereye concealer. I have tried a lot of powders both drugstore and high end and there are many, nicer feeling, radiant looking translucent powders out there that are better than this - like the Boots translucent powder ($12) and Mac's Next to Nothing powder ($28); both of which don't dry out my skin and create wrinkles. I won't be repurchasing this and I regret spending almost $40 for it.

Lipstick -NARS -Powermatte Lip Pigment

on 11/9/2017 8:14:00 PM

I resisted these when they first came out, but I shouldn't have waited so long to try them. These remind me of NARS lip stains, which were discontinued some years ago. My favorite was Sayonara, which was the perfect rosy raspberry. The new Powermattes are super pigmented and most importantly, have incredible staying power. They indeed are more like stains than liquid lipsticks, so they can be drying. American Woman wears off evenly on me, while Star Woman did not and was more high maintenance due to it being a bold deep red. They have a faint vanilla scent that doesn't bother me.

Powermattes have a fluid, runny texture, so I dab a stripe along my bottom lip and use a little brush to fill in my lips. I wouldn't apply this without a mirror or in a moving vehicle, but the overall longevity of this product is worth the extra time you spend upfront applying it.

Overall, the Powermattes are a must have for me and aptly named, which means they're long lasting due to their pigmentation, but can be a bit drying.


Lipstick -NARS -Velvet Matte Lip Pencil - Never Say Never

I love this and never want to be without it. I wear it the way most would wear a strong red lip (because 99% of reds looks terrible on my yellow/olive skin).

It's such a GORGEOUS color!

This color in particular seems to have a lot of traction with Asian women and I think I understand why. I'm half Indian and it's really hard to find good lippie colors. Mauves seem to work best and I guess that's because we have yellow and golden undertones and purple is opposite on the color wheel. So purple-y pinks really pop. This color isn't a true mauve, it's more of a fuchsia but there is *just* enough purple in there to anchor it so the pink and red aspects don't overwhelm yellow/olive skin tones. Other good points are that it is a neutral color- not especially warm or cool. And the best part? It's so buildable! A tiny swipe goes a long way and you'll have a nice berry stain for daytime. But if you line your lips and apply several layers, you'll get a really finished statement lip that's very pigmented and bright in a gorgeous, unique color.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is my HG concealer. I’ve tried numerous drugstore & high end concealers however they either are cakey, too dry, too oily or crease easily.

This concealer is amazing. The texture is very creamy, opaque & isn’t too thick. It glides on the skin beautifully, I use the Real Techniques Expert Concealer brushes to apply both under my eyes & on any blemishes. I notice if you apply too much product, it can get cakey so I recommend only using a small amount!

I purchased the two shades Vanilla & Chantilly as I wasn’t sure what would suit my fair skin. Vanilla is slightly too pink but I’m able to it use it for red areas or blemishes on my face. Chantilly is a touch too light for my skin tone, so it’s perfect for under eye highlighting. I usually set my under eye area with Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder however it doesn’t crease even if I don’t use it.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is one of the staples in my makeup collection. Vanilla is just a tad too pink for me but the Chantilly is perfect. I 100% would re purchase!

Great creamy concealer for under eyes, wears well and doesn’t crease! It’s the best all-round concealer I’ve found and its my go-to everyday concealer.
A little pricey but worth it.

Benefits oversold at the counter, I left with high hopes only to be underwhelmed by another ordinary concealer. Upon application, the product seemed promising with a smooth, silky texture, and moderate coverage. In under 10 minutes, the "luminous" finish began to crack, highlighting the slightest of skin imperfections. My eyes looked better without this product. Perhaps, this might work on younger skin or for use other than the eye area, but not for me!

Pros:
- sleek packaging;
- no useless brush included;
- it lasts from 9 to 5 without reapplying.

Cons:
- I don't love this color on my warm-toned light-medium complexion;
- there are lanolin alcohol, cetyl acetate (both highly comedogenic) and parabens among ingredients. I have breakouts when using it;
- I don't like shimmer, I find it looks cheap on me;
- packaging gets dirty and attracts all the dust.

Can't recommend, won't buy again.
