Wow! I think I have finally THE concealer. I have tried multiple different types of concealers even using two different ones top of each other for extra coverage but with this one I don't need to. I was stuck on Mac's "select cover up" and "pro long wear" but not anymore. The price is a little much but this concealer goes a long way. Right now for summer, I'm a little bit tanner than usual so I bought 'vanilla' to give me that extra glow. The coverage is perfect and it last all day if set with a powder that is. :-)
Best concealer I have ever used, tried the LancÃ´me and used it for years until I discovered this one, using it for life now
I blame Estée from essiebutton and Lauren Curtis (both beauty youtubers) for this purchase.
However, I'm very happy I bought it. Very creamy, good coverage, very nice range of colours, long-lasting...overall an awesome concealer for under eye circles and blemishes.
I would totally recommend this to any type of skin!
I only have two cons: SO PRICEY!!! (at least where I live...) and I hate that the packaging is not clear so you don't know how much product you have left.
I believe I would buy this again...I'm not sure because I still can't decide if I like this one better or my beloved MAC Pro longwear concealer. Tough choice.
this is so good! I get excited just to swipe it on my skin cause it looks so nice :P
I don't smell a smell with this lol but then again my nose is jacked up lately so your experience may differ.
It lasts all day, I wore it for hours and hours and there wasn't even one indication of it fading :) so that's always good, plus its NARS, you know you're going to get good quality :)
Probably about the only concealer that is nice, creamy and pale enough to suit me, I bought chantilly, a wonderful colour (a little too pale in summer, but only slightly).
I find that the concealer cakes up a bit on my skin, but that's more to do with my dry skin and eczema than the concealer.
I would definitely recommend it for those who struggle to find makeup pale enough (like I do my entire life, and I'm not even the palest person I know).
Concealer is so amazing. I have the darkest, bluest circles. They are so bad that my brother used to ask me if I was punched in the face. And that was at 12 years old. So finding a good concealer is a struggle. I went on to the sephora website to look for a new concealer. According to them, this is full coverage. i completely disagree. It works fine and everything, but for my circles it doesn't work. The applicator is terrible. It's one of the doe-footed things. I never feel like any product is on the brush. It lasts for maybe four hours, which is not what I want from my concealer. However, since a decent, non-cakey concealer that costs less than $90 is hard to come by, I think I'll stick with this one until something better comes along.
This concealer is amazing in coverage, color, staying power, and application. I use the shade Ginger (MAC NC 40) and I am able to use it under my eyes to cover my dark circles and on the rest of my face. I have always used a lighter or peachier concealer for my under eyes but with this concealer, I don't need to. Yet, I'm able to use it around my nose and on the occasional spot which makes my makeup routine easier. I apply this by using one swipe on the back of my hand and using a brush. I do not apply this directly to my skin to avoid contamination of the product. If you are NC35-40 skin with golden undertones, it can be difficult to find a concealer that's not too yellow. Nars is brilliant with their shades-my skin looks flawless after using this concealer. I apply this either under powder foundation or over my liquid foundation. I make sure I use a good eye cream (with silicones) to prevent creasing. Otherwise, I find it doesn't have enough slip for that delicate area of the face. I also set it with my powder foundation or setting powder. I love this concealer and will continue to repurchase.
This is a mediocre product especially for the price. The color honey is spot on but I do find it a little tedious to blend because the texture is a lot drier than I had anticipated. I've been using Erase Paste for a long time and love how creamy and easy it is to blend but I can only use it under my eyes. I needed something a little more light weight for redness around my t-zone. This is longer and lighter wearing and the coverage is decent but around the eye I have to apply it over a thin layer of First Aid Beauty's Ultra Repair Concentrate for a smooth application and to prevent this from settling into fine lines. I may try to mix it with primer and see how that goes. This doesn't brighten as well as I'd like either so I end up putting a little Photo Op eye brightener on top. I do like it better on other areas of the face. While I don't love this I won't return it because the color match was great and I'm able to finally find a use for the Photo Op. It had been collecting dust under my bathroom sink forever. I won't go out of my way to repurchase but I can definitely make this tube work until it's finished.
Before buying this I had been happily using my YSL Anti Cernes concealer, which always creased a bit after application. So when Wayne Goss said liquid concealers did not crease as much as cream concealers, I went and bought this from Sephora. I have NC25 skintone and I intentionally bought this in the shade vanilla, which is about two shades or so lighter than my skin in order to highlight my under eye area. This concealer has a lovely creamy texture and is rather easier to blend with either fingers or brushes. I generally blend it with a combination of fingers and brushes and I apply two layers with this method. Then, I put a small amount on whatever spots of dark circle is still shower and I tap the concealer on with my fingers, no rubbing or buffing with brushes-tap,tap,tap...until its blended it, which usually doesn't take long. The concealer is in itself between medium and full in coverage, but doing the 3 layers helps me get full coverage. I have moderate dark eye circles and this concealers covers 90 percent with the three layer method I use. Even with the three layers, this concealer manages to crease less than the YSL Anti Cernes. Yess!!!
I generally look for full coverage concealers and my only complaint about this concealer is not enough coverage. I suspect that if I used the matching shade of concealer to my skin tone, I would get better coverage because under-eye circles are darker than skin, so a same shade or slightly darker concealer would conceal better than one that is much lighter than skin. I have also found a dupe for this, okay maybe an 80% dupe in the drugstore-Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. I bought it in the shade Fair i order to highlight the center of my forehead, top of nose, cupid's bow and chin in order to balance out the under eye highlight. I didn't want to use my Nars concealer for all this highlighter because its more expensive. Out of curiosity, I tried using it in my under eye area and found that, hot damn its pretty close to the Nars Radiant Creamy! I find that the Fit Me has a bit less coverage than the Nars and also the finish of the Nars is a bit more satin than the Fit Me. But the Fit Me concealer is more moisturizing than the Nars concealer. So if you're looking for something that is 80% similar to this an a hell of a lot cheaper, look to the Fit Me concealer. The shade Fair in Fit Me is close to the shade Vanilla in Nars Radiant creamy, I just went for Light because I didn't want so much of a highlight on other parts of my face.
I used to love this stuff until I found Hard Candy's glamouflage which works better and is way cheaper.
This stuff used to settle into my fine lines and I'm not a fan at all of the packaging. It's completely unhygienic. I love NARS and their products, but I won't be repurchasing.
