Same experience as the comment below me! i was anticipating the arrival of this product and trying it in hopes of it being my new HG concealer. Unfortunately, i couldn't get properly colour matched, the shades were too dark or too light for me. First , i got chosen HONEY to match my nw 20 under eye shade, it was too dark. Then the mua applied vanilla on top but it still didn't look right. My mac concealer looked better than both colours from nars combined on me. A disappointment for an nw 20 gal :(
DANDRUFF PRONE PEOPLE BEWARE! IF there's something i learned from suffering from dandruff is that the one ingredient you should avoid is LANOLIN and guess what? this shampoo has that very ingredient, another factor to consider is that it's drying, and people with thick wavy hair shouldn't be too keen on that

to the person below me, you took the words right out of my mouth. I too, am honestly fed up of trying to find a decent concealer. Like many people i had high hopes for this concealer, but wow this concealer was a huge FAIL. I haven't used this on blemishes since i normally don't have any, but as an under eye concealer this failed in many aspects. For starters, the application was greasy, and a slight touch to the eye this slid right off. Forget primers, this concealer won't last at all. The only aspect about this concealer i was not entirely disappointed about was the shade. It actually was a pretty decent shade for my under eye circles. not orange like 100000's other concealers i've used, but rather had a neutral yellow to it which blended right into my skin. for this reason,it's a real shame this product didn't live up to it's expectations as an under eye concealer.
Let me start off by saying, this isn't a "full coverage concealer" as it states it is. for starters, anything that comes in a pen clicker, is sheer , and yes it doesn't cake only because it's too sheer to provide opaque coverage. I had to layer this a lot to get the coverage i wanted. if youre looking for something beyond just sheer, then this isn't for you. also, it doesn't even last very long. costing 32.00 for a product that doesn't even last for a month, is NOT WORTH IT. the only plus about this product is that the colour 1 offers a yellow shade which offsets that of reddish tones under the eyes especially for sensitive prone people like myself.
Having combination skin,i find it ridiculously HARD to find a foundation that's right for me, either it's too dewy which leaves my t-zone with a shiny surface or just too dry where my nose gets especially flaky . With nars, i found the price to be rather expensive and i didn't see any subtle "glow" which the product claims to give. The one thing i did like however is, the colour tone. it wasn't too dark neither too light, but generally speaking it dried out my skin which i wasn't a fan of.
