Great concealer with medium coverage that can be sheered out over skin for lighter coverage and built up to full coverage. I wear this in "Custard" (yellow tone for light-medium skin) and wear the NARS Radiant Cream Compact in "Fiji" and it's a perfect match (for reference in other brands I wear: MAC NC20-25, Bobbi Brown in Beige, Missha Perfect Cover in #21, Giorgio Armani Lumi Silk in 4.5, Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour in Light-Medium Sand). I sometimes set this with powder but it holds up very well even without it.
- semi matte skin like finish
- works well for dark circles, blemishes or any discolouration
- lightweight and smooth texture that blends easily
- highly pigmented
- doesn't dry out skin
- amazing staying power (up to 9-12+ hours - lasts me all through work no touch-ups needed!)
- no creasing/caking/settling around nose, eyes, lips
- None (except maybe the price, but it is NARS so to be expected)
Repurchase? Yes, I like this better than what I previously used for my under eyes (Benefit Erase Paste or Hard Candy's Glamoflauge) because the colour is a better match and it is less sticky and thick, longer-wearing, more natural looking than both the Benefit and Glamoflauge.

I wear Ginger in the winter and Biscuit in the summer. I love the texture and the finish. It is creamy but sets on it's own - powder can be used but it is not necessary.
It is a strong medium coverage concealer. I recommend looking at a shade lighter when you are trying to find your colour.

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!
