I do like this product a lot. It covers my acne blemishes and hyper-pigmentations pretty well. This product does not work well with dry skin; I get dry skin in the winter, and it shows significantly more with dry skin. It also doesnt work well under my eyes, shows my lines too much. Overall, this product is good to cover blemishes and redness, but not under eyes. I might buy this product again if I cant find a better one.

I was looking for a stick concealer that gives excellent coverage for the occasional pimple without looking cakey. This works really well and conceals ALL DAY. We're talking 9+ hours. And in terms of natural coverage, people have commented on my "flawless" skin and asked me if I'm even wearing any makeup when I had this on over a pimple or two! But, as with most sticks, it's a bit chalky/dry and requires some careful blending. It does not seem to irritate my sensitive, acne-prone skin or exacerbate the blemishes I apply it on. It also perfectly matches my Asian (yellow undertone) skin tone, which is exciting in and of itself. I would not use this under the eye, as it's kind of too dry to give convincing coverage, but for skin imperfections, this does the job. This is a keeper.

I have this in the new stick form and it's the best concealer I've tried.
I like that it's smooth enough to glide around the eyes but substantial enough to cover redness around my nose. It never cakes or dries under the eyes and has very good staying power. As far as I can tell it has no scent.
I sweep it right on to my skin, then blend it with a Sephora #29 blending eye brush.
It's hard for me to get wildly excited about concealer, but this really is a great, multi-use product.

A fabulous blemish concealer: no movement or pigment change once applied and followed by light dusting of powder. Colour match for my light yellow based skin was near perfect (wear Nude in Chantecaille Just Skin). For me, consistency, application and blending of this product hands down better than same from Shu Umera's Mark Concealer, Laura Mercier's Secret Camoflauge and YSL's Anti-cernes.

I purchased the custard/ginger duo concealer. I do like this product, however, I don't think I would purchase this again. I have dry skin and break out occasionally. I find that this product covers redness well, but settles into lines hours later. My tool of choice to apply this product are my ring fingers. I am curious to know whether the texture of this differs from the concealer in stick form. I do like that the colors blend well into my skin and foundation (I wear Nars Sheer Glow in Punjab). The packaging is nice, but rarely do I use the mirror that the compact comes with. Also, I have found that even after applying an eye cream, this concealer is too heavy to wear under the eye.

The concealer I have is the one that is in a lipstick type tube. I have broken capillaries on my cheeks and wanted a concealer that is not too opague or too sheer. The woman at Sephora recommended this product. My tan is starting to fade and I needed a lighter concealer. Custard has yellowish undertones but I don't find it on the extreme end of yellow. I have to moisturize well otherwise if you build it up, this product can cake a bit in my opinion. Overall happy with this concealer and would buy again.

The color match was perfect. I wear Nars sheer glow in Punjab. I found this to dry to a powder finish. I loved it to conceal hyper-pigmentation. But I wasn't able to use it under my eyes. Even though the color was perfect, it seemed to crease. I love concealers in this lipstick form. So easy to use.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
This product has the best color match for me (I use sheer glow foundation in Fiji, I'm also NC20).
It is light textured concealer and I think it can be used more of like a foundation touch up than covering all your imperfections. But I definitely like this concealer the most of all concealers I own.
I use my fingers to put this over peach colored concealer to cover my undereye circle.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Oily, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Brown
This concealer was nice and light and the color matched my skin perfectly. I wanted to use it for my dark circles under my eyes, and it did not help. It had a lot of yellow undertones. It was too light to cover anything anything.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I'm Asian, therefore I have Olive and Yellow undertones and it's really hard to find a perfect color for me. I've been using this concealer for over a year. 3 sticks later and 1 waiting for me to use later, I do not regret my purchases. As long as my face is moisturized, the concealer blends in well. In the summer, it's almost the perfect color, in the winter it's a little dark, but like I said, it blends in well and it doesn't look like I am wearing a concealer.
The only problem I have with the concealer is that it's a tad bit expensive, so every time I'm in the states, I buy 2 sticks. Plus, each stick only lasts me 2-3 months. Also, it doesn't go on well without moisturizing my face (for morning I wake up without my makeup).
And the coverage is not very heavy, but it hides my dark under eye circles.

I got this in the Custard/Ginger Duo. Again another favourite from NARS, which I think they are discontinuing.
I love the coverage, and I love how blendable and durable it is. Dont need to set this concealer because it dries almost instantly. Doesn't run or look cakey, and the packaing is awesome, great to keep in your hand bag.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown, Wavy Eyes: Brown
This is my first concealer. I was debating between MAC and NARS and went with NARS and this product works fine for my under eye circles. Thats my main use and an occasional blemish. Works great. I cannot really compare it to anything else but will add that it does not crease under my eyes or crease near any fine lines near my eyes which is nice because I have seen how makeup can crease in these areas. This did not do that at all! I do recommend.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Oily Hair: Brown Eyes: Green
This is a great color for those with yellow, gold or peachy undertones but with light to medium skin tones. The coverage is better than others like Stila, Covergirl or Benefit. matches well with NARS Punjab Foundation.

I bought this as well, when Sephora had the duo deal. I love that it does cover my under eye circles, and it doesnt crease much. But I do feel like the consistency of the product itself is a bit difficult to work with, I have to apply a lot of product on my concealer brush in order to put a good cover on my eyes. I feel like it kind of dries out my under eyes a bit as well. I am will try get this another try, maybe after I buy an eye moisturizer.

good coverage, matches my skintone, creamy, not worth the price
Age: 30-35 Skin: Normal, Fair, Neutral Hair: Red, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Brown
I was surprised by this product. Even though I have very fair skin, it blended well enough that I could actually get away with using it. However, because the color is too dark for my skin (NC15) and requires too much blending for my taste, I have been using it as an eyeshadow base, and for this, the product actually works extremely well! So, any of you girls who purchased it through Sephora at the special price but found the color not to suit you, don't let it go to waste - it works really well as an eyeshadow base.

this is a pretty good concealer. i purchased it in custard, which wasn't a bad color match for my yellow toned nc20 skin but was still a little too peachy to use anywhere other than under my eyes. it applies smoothly, feels light and blends well but has a tendency to highlight any dry or flaky patches. coverage is decent, it neutralizes my dark undereyes quite well, but again, it's a little drying so i can only use it when i'm having great skin days. on the plus side, it stays on all day and doesn't crease or settle into my eyelids. i can see this product being great for people with oily skin.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination, Medium, Warm Hair: Red, Straight, Medium Eyes: Green
This concealer covered up my under eye circles, my acne, and my redness and lasted for a long time. It didn't look cakey and had a large amount of it and too colors that I could use, i love to try many types of make up but this is a concealer I will stick to because I've tied many before but NONE have worked this well! Recommend to everyone who has dark circles and/or blemishes that they wish to hide, you will NOT be disappointed!

Like others, I bought this when Sephora was clearing out its Ginger/Custard duos. Custard is the perfect shade to conceal my acne scars and dark circles.
The dry consistency means that the concealer stays on all day--I don't need to touch up at all. However, it also accentuates my pores. I always feel like I need to go over the concealer with a dab of moisturizer, which then makes me worry about oxidization/it all sliding off.
This is especially a problem under my eyes, where I can never seem to warm the concealer up enough. I'm not about to start rubbing at the area, but no amount of patting and pressing with fingers or brushes seems to coax the concealer into letting go and blending.
In all, it's not a bad concealer. It's as pigmented as anything Nars makes is, it's long lasting, and it comes in a beautiful little compact. I just wish the formula were more creamy so I could actually blend, and my pores aren't left for the world to see.

Finally, a concealer that I love. Before this concealer, I tried LM Secret Camouflage in SC-2 and Benefit Erase Paste in Medium-2. The LM was really chalky, dry and hard to apply. It was also on the grey side. The Benefit was a good color match, but it was a tad too emollient and would smudge my mascara if I tried to wear it under my eyes.
I have the concealer duo in Custard/Ginger. I prefer the Custard side, but the Ginger side may come in handy when I get tan in the summer. It's easy to apply with just enough slip even in the cold of winter, but also stays put. It looks very natural and conceals without that cakey look. I wear Nars Budapest/Ceylan and Custard was a perfect match. I'd definitely repurchase!
