Concealers -NARS - Soft Matte Complete Concealer

A good multi-purpose concealer. It has a smooth blendable texture. The coverage is around medium. Lately I've been using it both under my eyes and on blemishes and it's easy to just pat on my face with my fingers for fast daily looks. This really melts into the face with the warmth of your fingers best. I used to use the radiant creamy concealer but have come to prefer this. I feel this doesn't feel as thick and blends a bit easier. I don't find this creases on me. I generally set it with a loose translucent powder and this works well. The longevity is good. It's always going strong when I go to remove my makeup at the end of the day.
Overall a concealer I've come to rely on for my daily makeup and would definitely recommend.
Shade details: vanilla for this concealer (and radiant creamy)
Mont Blanc for sheer glow
Finland for radient tinted moisturiser
I have acne prone combination skin. This has not affected my acne.



Tinted Moisturizer -NARS - Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer

This has become my go to daily base product. It is light weight with a velvet finish that offers enough coverage to even my skin tone out. I have far from perfect skin so go in with concealer where a bit of extra coverage is required. This combination is one I have really been enjoying. It last on me all day (about 9 hrs) with maybe a touch up around midday, as I sometimes get a little shiny in the T-zone. It does hold up really well though. I rarely wear foundation now; before buying this I used it almost everyday so it's a nice change having a much lighter base that still looks polished.
Overall I absolutely love ❤️ this tinted moisturiser.
Shade details: I use Finland 🇫🇮 for this.
Mont Blanc for sheer glow.
Vanilla for radiant creamy concealer and soft matte complete cover concealer.
Skin details: acne prone (have not noticed this affect my acne) combination skin. I sometimes get oily in my T-zone.

NARS SHEER GLOW - SIBERIA

I'm one of those girls with super pale ivory skin with yellow (not orange or pink) undertones - which makes foundation shopping a nightmare because as we all know, most pale foundations are made for blondes with cool pink undertones. Often I just mix pure white foundation with pure yellow concealer

If you're a very pale-skinned brunette, dark red-head or asian, you'll probably find "Siberia" to be a great colour match. I was previously using Armani lasting silk in shade 2, which is a very pale neutral - this has a tiny bit more yellow in it. It's a FANTASTIC shade that is very, very hard to find

I prefer matt foundations as I live in a hot and humid climate, and the suncream I wear tends to make me a little shiny. I previously was using the more matt luminous weightless, but it's so cakey I had to switch

Sheer glow in Sibera is the same wonderful shade as Luminous weightless, and is definitely less cakey. Coverage is medium, finish satin. I

Packaging is poor - no pump, which allows bacteria and air into the bottle every time you use it. I screwed on the pump from an finished bottle of luminous weighless

I prefer matt foundations as I live in a hot and humid climate, and the suncream I wear tends to make me a little shiny. This has a powdery-matt finish and medium coverage, and is packaged with a pump which keeps it clean

However, my god is it CAKEY. It sits on every tiny bit of dry skin, every crinkle, every tiny pimple. I'd say you can only wear it if you're under 30 with normal-oily skin and no acne and no dry areas. It makes your skin look super uneven in texture. I have to exfoliate like hell before I attempt to wear it

I keep it in my makeup drawer but can only wear when my skin is nicely even


Concealers -NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer

Wow. Here I go hating on yet another product that gets rave reviews from almost everyone on the Internet! :( I really wanted to love this product...I really did. However, it made my undereye area look super crepey, regardless of my application technique. I didn't feel right throwing out such a pricey product, so I decided to try it on my jawline and cheeks to cover some old discolorations. Bad idea: it accentuated my pores and broke me out all 3 times I wore it on my face. :( Extremely disappointed.

The only good thing to come out of this concealer: I ended up trying and LOVING Maybelline Fit Me concealer after hearing that it was a dupe for this one! The Maybelline Fit Me is so much more affordable, makes my undereye area look smooth, and I can use it to cover discolorations on the rest of my face without breaking out! What's more, Fit Me shade 120 matches my skintone far better than Nars Radiant Creamy Vanilla.
