I had to jump on the bandwagon and order this concealer as soon as I saw the claims:
‘Soft-focus blurring with high-performance coverage. Optimal Diffusion Powder helps maximize light diffusion with spherical surface powders designed to absorb and refract light for soft-focus perfection. High coverage with weightless wear. Advanced powders with a unique structure lay flat, staying in place without settling into fine lines and pores.
LONG-TERM BENEFITS: Softer, smoother skin. Collagen-boosting peptides and hyaluronic acid reduce the appearances of wrinkles and pores by helping plump the look of skin. Antioxidant Daily Defense delivers a protective cocktail of Vitamins A, C, and E.‘
I have highlighted the bits that made me buy it lol! I’m a sucker for anything full coverage and weightless. The skincare benefits for the under eye area sound amazing too!
Packaging & Price:
I love the Nars packaging but the matte velvety packaging always gets dirty SO easily. This concealer comes in a round glass jar/pot with a velvety matte lid. It is a similar size to the ABH dipbrow. I have inserted pictures below for comparison! Retailing at £23 it is the same price as their Radiant Creamy Concealer.
With 16 different shades to choose from I went with the lightest – Chantilly. I love a bright under eye and Chantilly is a good match considering I opt for NC20 in Mac concealers. Chantilly is a tad lighter than my Mac NC20 prolongwear and not as yellow but definitely bright. I will be ordering more shades for my kit because I have fallen in love! I think this may replace any other concealer I’ve ever loved!
As mentioned, I absolutely adore this concealer. I have never tried any other Nars concealer so I cannot compare. A little goes a long way, it is definitely full coverage, creamy and blurs the skin beautifully. It doesn’t cling to dry patches and if you know me, you know I suffer from really dry under eyes. I prepped and set as I normally do and my under eyes looked flawless effortlessly! I am honestly so obsessed and been raving about it ever since I first tried it! I have tried this with my ring finger, beauty blender & a brush and it works beautifully any way I choose to use this which says a lot because some products work better with a sponge or brush or fingers.. This looks amazing no matter what I use. It blends seamlessly with minimum creasing.
The concealer looked flawless all day & photographed beautifully! Below is a picture of me wearing this concealer & the picture was taken with my iPhone back camera (with flash & indoors):
I can’t recommend this concealer enough and will be picking up more, if not all the shades for my kit! If you don’t like your undereye area as bright as I do and you’re around my skin tone I recommend you opt for shade – Custard.
