I had swatched this in store and was disappointed that none of the shades seemed to work for my fair, but olive under-toned (Asian) skin. A few months later, I chose a sample of this from Sephora and was again bummed that the sample only had one “light” color Vanilla 2, which I thought was way too pink and too light for my skin. I decided to try it anyway and was amazed how perfect the color was for undereyes, lids, and blemish coverage. I have been using Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer for years, but lately felt that it was creasing and highlighting any dry patches. NARS Soft Matte was creamy and soft to apply, which was surprising for it being so thick and solid at room temp. Just a dab into the concealer with my ring finger seemed to make it a spreadable consistency, I didn’t need to warm it in my hands first. It gave full-coverage over my dark circles but blended so well that it looked invisible. I apply this on top of Smashbox Original Primer and set it with Fenty Pro-Filt’r Setting Powder in Lavender (which I also love) and it lasts all day. I was so impressed. No creasing, caking, fading, or settling into fine lines. I have since bought a full-size pot. A little goes a long way and the sample lasted several weeks, so I think the full-size will last a long time.
