NARS has created what could very well be the best concealer I ever got my hands on.
Thinking about the concealers that I used before: One brand I own, the formula was packaged into a pot that you dip your finger in, but the it’s so stiff, you can just dab it out. Another brand, the formula was too watery and applied very thin- when you are done blending it out, it was all but gone. Another issue I have ran into is skin matching. Most concealers on my skin are too yellow, too white, or too red. I’ve never put my hands on a concealer that honestly matched my skin… you know, the parts of my skin that have no freckles, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, dark circles and rosacea? Not until today.
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is a super creamy, well pigmented concealer that covers any and every flaw you have on your face. This one of those ‘a little bit goes a long way’ products. The more you use, the more
you cover, but if by change you have to conceal something like a little pimple, just use a tiny dab. I tested three of the ten shades offered: Ginger, Biscuit, and Caramel.
From top to bottom: Caramel, Biscuit, Ginger
Ginger is a shade for someone with medium light skintones
Biscuit is a shade for someone with medium skintones
Caramel is a shade for someone with medium deep skintones.
All of these are not only well pigmented, but buildable. They did not settle into the lines of my face (but then again, I did test using primer). but they have the potential to crease if you do not know how to set your concealer with a little powder. It would be unfair of me to review a product and give it poor ratings simply because people want them to be standalone products. Using this concealer, setting with powder, applying foundation and spraying with Skindinavia gives me a solid 12 hours of coverage.
Personally, Caramel was the best match for my skin tone.
