Very happy with this product sans cost of course
Can really just use this and skip the foundatoin
Love the texture, blends right into my skin, covers beautifully and I do not even need to set with powder
Will re purchase
At first I wasn't too impressed...but after using this for weeks, I do have to say it's much better than most concealers in that it doesn't get cakey - even when building up layers - and it does cover well. If the tube lasts me a while then i'll definitely buy it again when I run out. It's too expensive to repurchase every month or 2 months...
I have the worst dark circles from birth! Tried everything, even Bobbi brown in light bisque.... Too cakey. This is my HG!! Vanilla is my perfect shade ! Not too drying and I don't need to pack on the under eye cream either where I feel greasy! Lasts all day with setting it with bare minerals well rested or my favorite Laura Mercier powder in the under cover pot. Job well done NARs! I will def be repurchasing! Very creamy! Like the doe foot applicator. There's nothing I don't love. Just 3 tiny taps under each eye. Then I take my pinky and lightly tap it in until it is mostly gone. Then I reach for my Eco tools concealer brush and tap some more. After that, I take my other Eco tools powder brush and lightly tap some powder ontop to set and voila ! Done!
Finally my perfect concealer! I've used Mac studio finish concealer in NC20 for years and its still a great concealer, but as my skin has changed/dried I find it can look cakey and settle into creases. I tried Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier, Benefit, Collection 2000, Bourjois...but nothing worked for me in the long run. I tried this in vanilla and it's made a huge difference to my dark under eye circles. The colour match is just right for me (Mac NC20, Laura Mercier mineral powder in Real Sand). I love the creamy texture, its thick enough for great buildable coverage, but not too much that it goes cakey or settle into creases. I use this regulary and its lasted months and months and still there's no sign of it finishing yet. I've already repurchased for when it does though. The only bad point I can think of is the packaging. Although it looks great, I have a feeling there will be a lot of product left in the tube that the stick won't be able to reach so it'll go to waste.
I love the consistency of this product. It has phenomenal pigmentation, good staying power and (applied carefully), I don't have an issue with it settling into lines (which are not particularly fine, if you get my drift).
The biggest surprise for me was that I didn't need the lightest color, even for my NW15ish skintone. I picked up the 2nd lightest shade, Vanilla, and it is a great match. The pigmentation, as stated before, is phenomenal. I have some pretty serious under eye circles and this product covers them better than anything else I've tried (include LM SC and MAC Studio Finish) without needing to apply a ton of it.
I generally set the concealer with Laura Mercier's Under Eye Brightening Powder and it lasts a solid 6 hours before it starts to break down at all and a good 9 hours before it needs touching up. I use this under my eyes, but I really don't ever use it to cover blemishes, so I can't really say how it performs there.
As I said, I do set it with powder, but even if you don't use powder, it dries down to a matte finish. I think it's fairly unique in this as most of the really creamy concealers I've tried tend to not dry down well.
Overall, I'm incredibly impressed with this product and will definitely repurchase when I run out.
I have used this for a few weeks in Vanilla and Honey and I am not a convert. Vanilla is a good shade for overall concealing and Honey works well for counteracting undereye discoloration. The thing is that I found this to look very dry, especially under eyes. If it works for you - great! Else, save your money.
I have some serious dark circles so the true test of a concealer is how well it covers them. This one falls a little short because it's not 100% opaque when blended in, but it looks very natural and covers any redness/blemishes really well. Sometimes I wear just this on problem spots, without foundation.
I have never used a concealer before, I remember trying the stick in high school and it looked horrible - caked on! But there I was in Sephora trying on my new foundation and the makeup artist applied some and I noticed an immediate difference. It lightened my dark circles and made my eyes stand out. It was smooth and it didn't look like I was wearing a concealer. Loved it!
Not too impressed. I don't have severely dark circles and this didn't even cover mine too well. It says it's creamy but it's drying and doesn't blend well with my concealer brush. It doesn't brighten. It doesn't conceal. so it's good for nothing. I'm going to repurchase fake up from benefit (in medium which is the same shade as custard but brighter). The colour is too flat so I don't think it's meant to brighten but the term "radiant" is misleading as that's what I thought it would do. £21 is not worth it I'm afraid and I have to get through a tube of something which doesn't brighten my eyes at all. The advisor actually recommended vanilla to me (and Punjab in sheer glow) but I went with custard as got light yellow tones like I do. I thought vanilla would be too ashy in natural light but it seems custard just doesn't brighten at all. I'm annoyed as so many people love this but unfortunately I won't repurchase again.
I already liked the stick concealer in the NARS line, but I tried the creamy concealer after reading rave reviews. On the first use I knew that this was THE product for brightening the skin under my eyes. The medium coverage is similar to that of the stick concealer, but the creamy texture makes it easier to blend and quicker to use overall. The finish is light and seamless. As a sleep deprived mother of a newborn, this is my secret weapon when I need to look normal! ;)
