Review of NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer by UrrUrr
I am on the fence about this..My shade should be Vanilla but I went up one shade to Honey as my brown dark circles are quite bad and I prefer to use a darker shade to conceal them.
The bad thing was..Honey is quite orange and much too dark on me, it reminds me of Bobbi Brown's corrector in light peach. (note: I bought this online, so I was not able to test it in real life.) It probably suits very warm-toned people more. I am neutral toned and the colour sits strange on my skin even when blended out so there is no way I could use this as a spot concealer. The concealing (correcting property in my case) power is average and nothing much to shout home about. I have to put another concealer over this because my circles are not adequately covered.
This concealer doesn't do much on my skin but at least it doesn't crease or cause dryness. However, I feel that it's not suitable for people with lines or dryness at the undereye because the formula itself doesn't have much slip and is kind of "heavy". It will probably sink into lines and emphasise dryness. Guess this is better for people with who are looking for a light coverage concealer. :)
Edit: I bought Vanilla just for the heck of it. Vanilla is pink toned and I would eyeball it as being around NC20. It is definitely darker than my skintone and but acceptable once blended out on my blemishes. But it's okay for undereye circles - no pink tint. I think it is far closer to my skintone than Honey. Therefore, I do prefer Vanilla to Honey...at least I don't get weird orange splotches. Although Vanilla & Honey are next to each other in the shade selection, they are two vastly different colours. I would highly recommend anyone with a NARS counter near them to try these two in person if you're dithering between the two shades.
