  • "this concealer was my favorite until i tried tarte shape tape. i have severe under eye circles so i need a lot of coverage. i could get full coverage if i layered this under my eyes and set with a brightening powder, but i can get full coverage with one go with the tarte concealer. this concealer was fine on my dry skin, maybe a little drying but not enough to keep me from using it. i bought this specifically for under eyes so i'm not sure how it is at spot concealing. i've switched over to tarte because it works better for my needs but if it creases on you or is too full coverage this would be a good option. i also didn't find a perfect color match but i wanted to try the mini from sephora first which drastically limited my options. bisque was good enough of a match for me to use for a few months and i love that mini versions are available" in 1611 reviews

Review for: Custard more...
Let me start out by saying I'm a creature of habit when it comes to certain products. I have always stuck with one drugstore concealer for YEARS because I absolutely love it, and nothing compared to it (even high end concealers). I don't know why I was always hesitant of buying this one; the price definitely had something to do with that. Well, I finally gave it a shot. Oh my good gosh. This is THE BEST concealer I have ever tried, and that is a HUGE statement for me to make. I have the shade Custard, and my skin tone is light/medium to medium. This is such a good shade for me. It's light enough to highlight my features but doesn't make me look ghostly or pale.
The formula of this concealer is, of course, amazing. I have normal skin, which can lean slightly dry at times. I'd say the texture is slightly thick but also lightweight (does that make sense?). It blends like a dream on me. I personally like to blend my concealers with a blending sponge. The coverage is perfect. I'm not a fan of super full, cakey looking coverage. This gives me medium to full coverage and looks very natural. A little definitely goes a long way. It just looks so good! I don't have issues with it creasing badly on me, and it doesn't emphasize any fine lines. It doesn't look drying on me either. And it stays put all day. I've worn this for 10+ hours, and it looks the same by the end of the day. Very little fading.  
I really don't think I have anything bad to say about this concealer. It's worth every single penny. I'll be reaching for this constantly, and consider it as one of my new go-to concealers.

10 stars. I have terrible dark circles- not the wimpy ones most people complain about, but the hereditary ones that are really just skin pigmentation. This is the best concealer I have ever found. I was previously using the Benefite Boing concealer and thought that was pretty great, but it was too drying for under my eye area during the winter. Tried this NARS concealer and WOW- I didn't know what I was missing! This concealer is so incredibly pigmented so it provides amazing coverage, and you do not need a lot at all. A little goes a super long way. It's pretty moisturizing as well, which is great for winter. It is very long lasting too. I definitely don't need to re-apply for like 8-10 hours, but I could definitely go about 16 hours if needed- I'm probably the only one that even notices that I need a touch up. I wish I could prevent everyone from buying any other concealer ever again--don't spend your money on any concealer except this one! I have naturally light/medium skin and use self tanner on my face daily and get about a medium skin tone, and the shade medium custard is perfect. In the summer with a tan I will likely have to mix it with the next darker shade.

Review for: Chantilly more...
I have tried a lot of concealers and recently and finally got around to trying this NARS one. For years, I have heard great things about this concealer. I am very fair skinned and sometimes have a tough time finding a shade light enough for me to use as a highlighting concealer. If I do find a shade light enough, often times it is too cool toned and I have a neutral to warm undertone. Chantilly is the perfect shade. My current holy grail concealer has been Tarte’s Shape Tape, but this one is right up there with that one. I like that it’s slightly lighter than my Shape Tape concealer (which is the lightest shade they offer). It’s also a lighter formula but still has great pigmentation and coverage. The wand is a bit thin which makes spreading it on slightly more difficult. I think I’ve just been spoiled by the Shape Tape thick doe foot applicator. I haven’t noticed any creasing and it lasts long on my skin. I’m really impressed by this one. I think it’s a great alternative when I want good coverage, but a lighter formula.

I purchased this after my shape tape was not working for me. (It was way too drying!) I love the formula, but it's more medium coverage. So when I wear a full coverage foundation it just doesn't look right. I perfer using this on days I just want to throw on some mascara and lipstick. Or like a tinted moisturizer and this for dark circles. It looks so natural and blends in so well. The doe foot I pretty small and not a whole lot of product comes out so I usually do two or 3 dips to conceal. Which seems like alot compared to shape tape. But it's nice cus your way less likely to do way too much. Overall this is a great concealer. It didn't replace my shape tape (I actually got the soft matte, and it's exactly what I needed for full face days) but I finally found a natural way to look on days I'm just not feeling full face!

Review for: Chantilly more...
This is hands down the best concealer I have used. I wear it alone often because it just melts into the skin and blends flawlessly. The coverage is incredible and full, but looks natural. You hardly notice it’s there, and could even get away with not setting it with translucent powder because it dries pretty matte. I did not give it four stars however, because the way the packaging is designed, SO much product is wasted because you just can’t reach the corners, or the bottom of the tube with the wand! Normally with a concealer that has a stopper, when I get to the end of the bottle, I use tweezers and pop the stopper out so I can scrape out as much product as I need. This stuff is not cheap, and runs out pretty quickly when used daily, and the stopper was nearly impossible to pull out, but once I finally got it out, I was able to make the most of what was left.

Review for: Custard more...
I held off on getting this concealer because of the price tag and because I had a really hard time finding my shade! I ended up getting Custard and it works for me, but looks different blended out compared to swatching it. 

I do enjoy this concealer, but I won't be repurchasing it when it's finished. It is medium coverage, that can be built up to full coverage without looking cakey. It doesn't crease on me terribly, but eventually starts to after about 5 hours of wear. 

It is very creamy and I prefer to blend it out with a beauty sponge, which does sheer out the coverage a little. If you use a brush you get more coverage, but this works well with either! It does have a radiant finish, but once set with powder this goes away. It works well with different foundations and setting powders. 

The packaging is classic NARS packaging with the soft matte top. It has a standard doe foot applicator, but not enough product comes out on it. Having to keep dipping in makes it seem like I'm using a lot of product. 

If you haven't tried the  NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer I don't think you're missing out on much, but it is still a reliable, consistent product.

Review for: Chestnut more...
I tend to use this concealer when I know my picture is going to be taken. It's a really nice medium to full coverage concealer depending on how much you build it up. It was a dream to blend when I used my  Flower Ultimate 3-in-1 Blending Sponge, MB1 damp. I use it to brighten my under eye and highlight the lightest parts of my face. The longest I've worn it was 12 hours and when set with powder, it still looked great and smooth. 
It is certainly a pricey product at $30 a pop but I think it's worth it considering how much coverage you get with so little amount of product. I've had mine for a little under a year I haven't even begun to reach the bottom of it. Additionally, NARS in general has a great shade range and this concealer is no different, it's always difficult finding a concealer that's deep enough for my complexion but isn't super red in undertones. The shades offered allowed me to have options in my concealer and that alone is worth the price tag. I would absolutely recommend it!

Review for: Vanilla more...
This was my go to concealer for quite a while. Nars has always been a hit for me, and this was no exception. It did a fine job of concealing dark circles, and especially blemishes, but one of my favorite uses for it, and what I use it for now, is as an eyeshadow base. Pat it down with your finger or an eyeshadow brush and it will hold eyeshadow like a dream.

The picture included is of when I still used it for both my undereye and eyeshadow base. There are no filters, and it's taken in natural lighting. I did powder my undereye after using the concealer so that there was no creasing. Hope this is helpful! NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

Review for: Creme Brulee, Cannelle more...
I am 31 with combination skin. My undereyes are dry unless I use an eye cream right before application of any concealer. 

This is still my holy grail concealer. It is creamier than Shape Tape and less drying. It is better coverage than any Becca highlighter. There are dupes, but the dupes do not last as long for me and they crease up quicker than this concealer.
All concealers do crease on me, eventually. This may be because I am VERY emotive with my facial expressions or because I have 31-year old skin! This concealer is no exception but I can get a good 3-4 hours without any creasing. I set it with RCMA powder or the Kat von D lightening powder and it does not look cakey. You may be able to get away with not setting it at all. 

My perfect shade match for foundation in the summer is Too Faced's Born This Way in Porcelain. Cannelle is brighter and appears a little more yellow but it looks really good against my skin tone. I was hesitant to choose that shade because of how yellow it looked under the lights in Ulta but it was a great match. Creme brulee is much pinker toned compared to Cannelle so if you are in between shades and you have yellow undertones, I would go with the latter.

Review for: Vanilla more...
I love this concealer but had to stop using it for multiple reasons. It has a lot of pros though! For example, it illuminated my face and was perfect for highlighting/contouring. It was also very long lasting and didn't crease on my under eye area. It wasn't heavy and I could layer it on top of any foundation without it looking Cakey. I ended up switching to another brand for a few reasons: it is super expensive and does not last long at all. I would go through a full size concealer every month and a half. Also, the lighter shade range for olive/yellow toned skin is abysmal. I settled with vanilla which was definitely a little pink but was the only shade that even remotely matched me. I would probably go back to using this if they expanded the shade range, even despite the price

I own this concealer and am looking for new ways to experiment with it. Do you think it's best applied with fingers, brushes or a beauty blender under the eyes for a natural finish?
