NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer Review!

I just want to preface this post by saying...

I am in love with this concealer. 

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is a creamy and moisturising concealer. It works typically well for dry skin, but I would recommend moisturising beforehand for times like these. Despite its hydrating nature, it does not crease and does not accentuate fine lines. It has good lasting power and dries quickly.

The packaging is very practical. It comes in a clear tube with a doe-foot applicator. The black matte cap has the typical NARS packaging finish however... a dirt magnet. But otherwise, it is perfect! 

It has a great highly-pigmented formula that provides medium to full coverage. I find it adequately covers my dark circles with one layer, giving a luminous bright and wide-awake look. It can also be used to cover blemishes and red patches of skin, around the nose and mouth.

I have yellow-toned skin and typically MAC NC30. I use the shade Custard and the colour looks very natural on my complexion.

I apply NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer straight from the tube with the doe foot applicator and place a few dots on areas that need concealing. It can be blended with the fingers, but I prefer blending it out with a brush. I use either the fluffy MAC 224 Brush or the Real Techniques Contour Brush to give an even finish.

I know I look a bit startled in this photo, but promise I didn't intend to! It just shows how brightening this creamy concealer is and the glowy finish. This is a fantastic concealer and I think it will take me a while to finish this tube as a little goes a very long way. I will probably repurchase when that happens!

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (£22) is available from your local NARS counter.

  1. I want to try this concealer, but I'm worried about it being too creamy or dense for me!

    Ahhh! Audacious is a perfect color. I hope these come to Korea.

  3. Hi Lou, it is quite creamy, It's in the name! But the consistency is not so thick as you'd expect and it dries off quite quickly for a creamy concealer. Try it!

  4. Can you wear this concealer without anything else? I do not wear foundation but have dark under eye circles.

  5. Yes you can wear this alone on problem areas such as spots and undereye circles. If you choose the right shade, it covers them nicely.

  6. Thank you!!

  7. The colors are so pretty!! But the formula did not appeal me

  8. I have been meaning to buy this concealer for a long time but the thing is the availability. I loved your review
