I bought this to use as a spot concealer early this last summer and while it was alright for zits, I wasn't in love or proposing. I figured that once winter came and I went back to nc20 I would use my mufe full cover. As an nc30-40 in the summer I used custard.
The doefoot applicator is skeevy but there's only so much product so it has lasted me only four months with occasional use.
WELL, I was getting reeaaal tired of slogging foundation on my face and tried this:
I applied a dot under each eye. I slide it on the sides of my red nose area. Another dot on my zit at my chin. Then I used a finger to blend everything out and set with MAC msfn in medium. There is a luminosity to my skin that is unrivaled by any other concealer. My DS lumi concealer is alright but not a color match for the whole face and is too sheer.
It looks flawless AND natural and I've already bought it the lighter shade. I won't be using liquid foundation for a while...it basically covered my pores, discoloration and slight undereye darkness. The formulation is so creamy and opaque without sliding around or creasing (tried mufe under my eyes and it caked in a second.)
The price is rude but for a flawless look I'd trade a thumb and my first born every purchase.
I don't really enjoy this product. I've been using it for about 3 months now, and I would not repurchase. I have been using it under my eyes and it doesn't do much for my dark circles. It's also quite drying which is in conflict with the title of the product with states it is 'creamy'.
I'm still searching for the HG undereye concealer. This wasn't it.
I bought this product at my local Sephora looking for a new under eye concealer. I wanted something that would brighten up my eye area and I was debating between Nars and Bobbi brown's concealer. I ended up picking this one as they are both the same price but Nars has more product so I went for this product instead. I'm pretty much an NC30-35 for reference and wear the color Vanilla as my under eye brightener/concealer. I believe Custard would have matched my face, but I wanted a lighter color to brighten the eye area. The color in between Vanilla and Custard (don't remember the name) did not match close to my skin tone at all. I can blend Vanilla in with my skin no problem. I used my fingers at first to blend under the eyes, which worked well, but started to blend using a stippling brush as I watched gossmakeupartist on Youtube and decided to use his method of blending concealer, which works great as well. This product comes with a doe applicator, which obviously isn't quite hygienic, but the product works well and I'd purchase it based on the product itself. I apply 1-2 dots under each eye and blend, brightening the dark areas. There is no scent to the product that I've noted. The product is quite creamy and blends well. It doesn't crease on me and works well and holds up for quite a long time. Although sometimes, I do end up wiping it off as my mascara sometimes smudges under my eyes and I end up swiping it away with my finger. Other than that, I think this product works well if you can find a right color match. I believe the Maybelline FitMe concealer is a dupe of this but I have not tried it yet as I was not sure what color I was. I typically use Sephora as my color finder matcher in case it doesn't match, then I can return it, whereas drugstore items, it is hard to do so, and most people touch and degrade the drugstore testers so I opt not to test them. But so far so good. Would repurchase if I run out, but this seems to last for a long time as I don't use that much product at a time.
Oof, well this was a bit of a disappointment. It's a highly hyped product, sure, but I've been waiting for this to be in stock at the local Sephora since it came out. I finally got frustrated enough to order it online (the Canadian site is still a little schizo with credit cards). Since I'm currently deathly pale, I ordered it in Vanilla. People (internet people) tend to say that NARS always leans yellow... well Vanilla ended up being too pink. Not only that but it's slightly too light for my face and too obviously dark for the blemish scars on my paper-white chest. The lightness isn't a huge issue under my eyes and on the cheekbones, in fact it lends a subtle highlight there... until it dries down completely and looks greyish. It is thick and stays put so I love it over blemishes. Layered under foundation the colour difference doesn't matter at all. I don't wear foundation daily tho so I can't wear it very often. I'm sure Honey would work much better for cancelling out the dark circles
the main thing I find disappointing about this concealer is that when it completely dries down it makes me look OLD, really old. It leaves my skin looking crepe-y and heavily lined, fine lines galore, the grand canyon of undereyes while being ever so slightly metallic in daylight, eugh. The real wake-up call was a few days ago when someone guessed my age as between 31 and 40 - I'm twenty-freaking-five! Not only that but I moisturize every day, wear eyecream religiously and at night I apply a facial oil and serum before climbing into bed. The darkness is covered but it looks dry as the Sahara. Switching back to my beloved stick concealer, which does crease, and often gets me carded.
Only docking one lippy since even tho it is very drying, it stays put and covers well. It's on equal footing with MUFE Full Cover, if a more reflective version of it. I am keeping it to wear under foundation on special occasions since it honestly does not crease.
Edit: To be clear, if I were a teenager this would be absolutely perfect alone.
I love this concealer. Great creamy coverage. I have dryness under my eyes, most other products I have tried only make it worse. This is the only concealer I have tried that has left my under eye area flake free for 8 hrs + of wear. I have the lightest shade which is perfect for my porcelain complexion.
I LOVE this concealer. The area under my eyes is very dry and sensitive and this is the only concealer that I've tried that does not irritate it. I also have very dark circles around my eyes, and while it does not cover them completely, it does a pretty darn good job - better than any other concealer. The only things about this are that the price is pretty high at $30 and I'm not too big a fan of the applicator. I wish it was a squeeze tube that way less product is wasted. Those are minor things, so I will DEFINITELY by repurchasing this.
I have really mixed feelings about this concealer. It's a wonderful consistency, coverage, and pretty good finish. I was initially matched to the shade Custard. I'm neutral - yellow undertones and it seemed a pretty good match. After getting it home and using it I would need to blend extra well for it to not look too gold/orangey. I decided to take it back and try my luck at Vanilla. This was too pale and oddly enough (given the rosier undertones) had a reverse effect on my under eye circles. If Custard and Vanilla could be mixed I believe that would be a perfect color for me (and many others). I think if it came down to it I would return the Vanilla back for the Custard and deal with it. However, I love my Lancome concealer for all the reasons above plus the color so I will just stick with that for now. However I do still highly recommend this concealer and if I had to I would repurchase Custard and deal with extra blending. Definitely give this a shot. Good stuff!
I just bought my second tube. I don't want to run out. There's is nothing about this product that I don't like. Love the doe-foot applicator. This product is truly a two-in-one. It conceals and illuminates. Holy-grail status!
I am so lucky I got the right shade!
I had always been curious about Nars foundations and concealers, having never tried them out and stuck to MAC products, but a relative of mine was going to the US and of course I had to ask them to pick me some stuff up from Sephora while they were there. Anyway, when I finally got it I immediately tried it on and knew I found the perfect concealer.
I got the shade 'Custard' and ever since I got it i've been wearing it.
At first, I would wear it with foundation as I was obsessed with obtaining a porcelain look but quickly wizened up and used it by itself with a dusting of powder to set. The outcome is a lot more natural and feels much lighter.
It's a product I use every day and I will definitely re-purchase!
I love this concealer soooo much because it's fits my skin shade perfectly which I sometimes have a problem with that but it's just a lil bit too dark but it's okay because I use this for covering my pimples. After a few hours, the concealer looks dry on my skin and there's some crack on top of that.
For reference, I'm nc 15-20 and use Custard.
