I love this product. I have a lot of blemishes and this is the first concealer that actually matches my skin tone; I wear the color Custard. However, for what you pay ($24), you get so little product in the tube. The tube doesn't allow you to get all the product either, so I feel like you don't get everything you pay for. BTW, THE DUPE FOR THIS IS THE REVLON PHOTOREADY STICK CONCEALER.

I love this concealer. I d been eschewing coverup and foundation for a while (laziness, ha) but redness and some acne scarring has caught my attention. I like NARS products, so I just picked this up Sephora a few weeks ago. I got Vanilla, which turned out to be a perfect match! I dab it onto my chin in the morning after my moisturizer sinks in, and then blend with my finger...but I'll probably pick up a concealer brush soon. I set with powder and this stays put all day. I have noticed that it gets a little oily - chin is in the T-zone, after all - but it doesn't look bad or bother me (I blot if it does). I don't have a problem with cakiness/dryness, but if you have dry/flaky skin, test a sample first. I also love the sleek packaging on this product...I hope the stick doesn't break off, haha. Definite repurchase.

The color selection, which I believe is the same as the former version of this product, is very good. I'm a neutral PPP and have worn "honey" for years. Although the new skinnier tube takes up less room in your bag, I prefer the older, creamier, more buildable version. Looking forward to trying the "radiant concealer" -- a creamy non-stick version. Very good coverage. If don't like the new version, would probably repurchase.

Several reviews have mentioned cakeyness and dryness. I do find my face needs to be really well moisturized for this to apply well, but as long as my face is good and primed, then I like this concealer a lot. I rub it on my finger and then pat on my face where needed. I really like the buildable coverage this way, and it can cover a lot where needed. In fact, I often use it instead of foundation, just patting it over my face on my red spots and blemishes. Seems to wear well on my skin too, and it doesn't cause me to break out. It also comes in a colour fair & pink enough for my nearly-transparent skin.

This is the best stick concealer I own. I think it's pretty easy for almost anyone to find a shade that fits her without too much trouble. The formula is long-lasting and it will cover just about anything. If you're having problems with it feeling tough when you apply it straight from the stick, try running a couple swatches on the back of your hand to warm it up. I use this lightly and I don't have any problems with cakiness whatsoever. It's such a nice formula, you don't have to apply too much. Mine has a nice pink undertone which is perfect for my under eyes. Plus, it's only just a little over $20, which is a lot for a stick concealer, but not for one that's so high quality. I love it, and I'll buy it again and again.

Not the greatest, but it's decent. One thing I like about this concealer is that I found a good color match (Biscuit). NARS provides an excellent range of shades. Also, I prefer stick concealers to other types just because they're so easy to use and I'm a big fan of idiot-proof makeup. Just dab on and blend with fingers. Low-maintenance.
Now I don't use concealer under my eyes, just to cover blemishes and dark spots when I have to. So I don't know how this performs as an under-eye concealer. But on the spots that I cover I find this product is a little too sheer and doesn't last long enough either. Has a dry and cakey appearance as well, which just draws attention to whatever it is you're trying to cover up! I guess I had high expectations because it's NARS. Overall, this product is just okay and I won't buy it again. Will continue to shop around until I find the perfect concealer.

Mine does nothing. Iím very pale, but maybe I needed a darker color (I have this in the lightest shade, Pure Ivory); however, this product seems to be sheer, period, regardless of the tone. It hides dark circles and evens out skin tone a teeny tiny bit, but no way would I repurchase. I thought it would be handy and effective, but it goes on too dry and too lightly. For me, it isnít heavy enough to turn cakey, but itís not at all moisturizing and doesnít feel good going on. This would be okay if it was dirt cheap, but really it does virtually nothing on my fair skin, so . . . no repurchase and no recommendation.

This was a generally caky concealer. I wouldn't say it's plainly "horrible", because it provides quite nice coverage and matched my skin perfectly, but it caked up so much it looked "obvious", especially under my eyes. The packaging is chic and slim, perfect for travel, but on a person with oily-combo skin, I was surprised at how thick it looked on my skin. No, it didn't break me out, and yes, it kept me matte, but it was very thick and noticeably on my under-eyes, nose, and smile lines around my eyes. It didn't crease on me though, but it did look very "powdery" on the skin, and was one of the most driest concealer sticks I've ever used. I believe you can get a way better deal for the amount of money this costed...heck, even the Maybelline "Fit Me" concealer might beat this! Check out brands like Sonia Kashuk (I love their concealer palette), or Revlon (they have an AMAZING stick concealer), and if you're looking for a higher-end brand I recommend Benefit's "Boi-ing", Bobbi Brown's "Creamy Concealer Kit", Make-Up Forever "Full-Cover Concealer", or Amazing Cosmetics famous "Amazing Concealer".

Imo, it's notoriously difficult to find the "perfect" concealer. I've been moving around to different concealers over the years, remaining loyal to a particular product for maybe 1-2 tubes but then moving on..
I love this concealer for UNDER EYES - great color match for my skin, great coverage without being cakey (just need to be sure to moisturize), and highly buildable. I use this only for undereye circles and maybe a dot here or there on my face -- for around my nose and chin I use a more liquid-y concealer pen because that area of my skin can be quite dry... So I wouldn't dare use this product there as it would look cakey.
I just repurchased my second tube, because it's that good for my undereye circles, which I absolutely MUST cover every day before leaving the house (one of my few daily makeup rituals...) HOWEVER. the biggest con for me is that it barely lasts! I used my last tube up in about 2-3 months, I think? Max... which is virtually unheard of for me. Over the years, my concealers have lasted at least 6 months, usually 1 yr... So that is very annoying. I'm going to be more careful this time around, instead of applying the stick directly to my eye area I'm going to dab it on my fingertip and apply it carefully and sparingly, even if it takes a bit longer... I can't afford to re-purchase this damn thing every 2 months! Wish they would make it in a bigger tube.

I love this concealer. This concealer is a perfect match to my skin so its great for just spot coverage when I don't feel like wearing a whole face of product. I use a brush when I'm not crunched for time to apply and then I stipple with my fingers. I am very happy with this product.

This concealer is pretty terrible. I have it in Chantily; it does little to conceal and wears away so easily. I find it cakey (despite having oily skin) particularly under the eyes. I do, however, enjoy using it to lighten up my foundations and other concealers, thereby making them the perfect colour for concealing dark circles. At least there's a silver lining.

I was matched to Chantilly by the SA at SEPHORA, which made me surprised because it looked so light in the tube. Apparently I am though. Okay LOL It's nothing special. There are no special ingredients and special effects, it just does it's job as a concealer well. I never tried it for the under eyes though.

I think this concealer's selling point (at least, for me) is its unique texture. It's not waxy/greasy like all the cream concealers I've tried. It's actually quite dry to the touch, but it applies very smoothly without dragging. I expected this to dry very matte. Surprisingly, it kind of 'melds' into a semi-matte finish that does not look cakey at all. I would say that this gives medium coverage initially. It can definitely be built to full coverage, though. For reference, I wear NARS Sheer Matte/Glow in Fiji. I use Honey to brighten my under-eye area and Custard for blemishes. I do wish that the concealer duos came in these two colors, though!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Very Dry, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
Coverage is mediocre.. finish is great but I find that the wear is poor. I also find that this creases under my eyes within an hour or so, so I ultimately have to restrict use to blemishes and hyper pigmentation.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination, Fair, Warm Hair: Brunette, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
I have really dark circles under my eyes and severe acne, so I picked this up because it is labeled as full coverage. I just swipe a little over the area I want to cover and BAM, it's gone.
Very Opaque and smooth. It blends really well and with very little effort, and covers almost everything, while still feeling lightweight. My only complaint is that it sometimes cakes slightly if the skin underneath isn't moisturized.
I wear the color Vanilla (yellow toned with a small amount of pink in it) but for winter I'll probably have to switch to Chantilly. For now though, Vanilla is a perfect match for my skin.
It comes in a slim, lightweight tube, similar to a lipstick or gloss. It has a twist-up stick of product inside and weighs 0.07 ounces.
All things considered, this is a great concealer and definitely worth the money. I'd buy it again, but if Nars could keep it from caking it would be absolutely perfect.

Purchased in Custard for my NC30/C4/Barcelona (SG) light tan Asian complexion. It has a unique texture: dry to the touch, but creamy when you pat it on. It starts a little chalky, but then my skin soaks it in and looks dewy and natural in a couple hours. Nars foundations and concealers are the only skin bases that look better the longer I wear them throughout the day. The Concealer stick is great for redness, uneven areas, and blemishes. Not great under my eyes since it's a bit drier than I want in that area, but will use in a pinch. The Custard color is spot on for me when I wear with SG in Barcelona or the Nars TM in St. Moritz.

I have started likely more and more Nars products lately.
I do like this concealer. I use two shades depending on what I want to cover. Vanilla and Chantilly. Vanilla for covering darker spots, days when I have had less sleep, or as a highlight. I like the Chantilly shade as a corrector for brightening the inner corner of my eyes or covering a blemish that is mostly healed.
I actually use a lip brush to apply them. And smooth out with fingertips or a damp sponge depending on space. I find they apply smoothly this way. I do think they crease a little more under my eyes than say the Kat Von D tattoo concealer. I always use a primer and a setting powder.
However I think I like Nars Concealer with Nars Sheer glow foundation. I think they blend well together.
Has any one else noticed how this is the exact same packaging for Nars Concealer as for Nars Matte lipsticks? I looked at the ingredients list on the packaging and they contained the exact same base (obviously different color choices). I just thought I would mention that. I have to read the labels to see what color I am about to apply when I want to use my nude matte lipstick (Madere) because the shade is only a smidgen peachier than Chantilly concealer. Ha.

I bought it during winter time thought that i would use it for under eye. However, it gave me a drying feel and didn't do much conceal my under eye area.
But!! recently i took it out again and start using it as my brow bone highlight. I LOVE how its look!! It didn't give a super frosty finish, more like a satin finish. I am grad that i started to use it again. Just bought my second one.

Oh, I love this stuff. With Nars Sheer Glow I need no concealer, but I need it just a little with Nars Tinted Moisturizer. I have a red mark that stands out just a bit with that, IMO, especially as the rest of my skin is relatively flawless . . . . . This just eliminates the mark completely. It hardly needs to be blended, it doesn't need powder, and it looks really natural. It also works on bare skin. I am totally sold on Nars foundations. Who knew? (I was matched in the Nars store here with Vanilla; I also use Mont Blanc in Sheer Glow and Finland in tinted moisturizer.)

This product was recommended to me at Sephora. The colour match is the best I've every found for a concealer. However, after using it for a few months, I noticed the area under my eyes were very dry. It also can be cakey.
