NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (Vanilla) Review

Product Description

Ideal for all skin types, Radiant Creamy Concealer is a multiaction formula that instantly obscures imperfections, blurs the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and hides dark circles and signs of fatigue. Hydrating and luxuriously smooth, it layers lightly for buildable medium-to-full coverage and a natural luminous finish. The multiactive botanical blend hydrates, firms, reduces redness, and strengthens the skin by helping its barrier retain vital moisture. It also delivers antioxidant protection to protect the skin against damaging free radicals.

Skin becomes visibly smooth, soft, and more even-toned. Mineral tone balancing powder works to optically correct, not mask, imperfections to keep skin looking flawless. A single stroke of Radiant Creamy Concealer keeps the complexion looking fresh and creaseless. It goes on smoothly, blends easily, and stays in place all day. Comfortable and hydrated, skin glows with new radiance over or under foundation and looks beautiful—even when bare.

Thoughts

Previously I was using Tarte for my undereye concealer. I actually quite liked using it but wanted to see if there’s a concealer with better coverage and longer wear time. Part of the problem might have been that I needed a lighter concealer for my eyes compared to the rest of my face.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer comes with a sponge tip. I usually don’t really like sponge tip applicators because it seems gross to put something on my face and then put it back into the product. I also find that it applies too much in one spot when using sponge tips. I usually have to dab a bit onto my finger and then pat the product a bit at a time onto my face.

I chose Vanilla since I was only planning on using the product for my eyes. It would be too light for the rest of my face. The times that I used it on my face to try it out though, it seemed to really bring out the dry parts of my skin. Which deterred me from wanting to buy the right shade just to apply on the rest of my face lol.

It does a good job concealing my dark circles but I wouldn’t claim that it’s hydrating. I have dry eyes and without a good amount of moisturizer underneath before application, it brings out all the lines. I definitely wouldn’t apply this concealer on without proper priming beforehand. It also drags on the skin if I apply it as is so it’s not as creamy as I would like it.

Coverage-wise it’s pretty good. I think it does a better job than my Tarte concealer. Definitely at least medium coverage. I found that it lasted me a pretty long time too. But I’ve been using it during spring/summer, which are the seasons for allergies so I’ve been rubbing my eyes from time to time.. So that’s the only time that it hasn’t lasted me for hours LOL.

I find that the Tarte one was more moisturizing so it looked more dewy whereas NARS dries to a matte finish. So I recommend NARS to anyone that is looking for higher coverage with a matte finish. But I would suggest that you properly prime your eyes if you have drier skin. If you have oilier skin around your eyes than it might work better for you if you like to apply the product as is.

4/5
