Hello my lovelies,
More recently, I have been investing more money into my make up. Not buying more but investing more money on specific products and moving more into the world of high end brands. As I am getting older, I feel rather than having 100’s of products I’d rather have less but products from brands I adore and love. This is one of those products, I have wanted it for a super long time and I finally went ahead and brought it. Concealer is something I don’t change up much but more recently I have been trying out new concealers, like this one.
For years I have stuck to my Collection – Lasting Perfection Concealer which I absolutely adore I have gone through tube after tube but I thought it was about time I try something else. For me, NARS do pretty well at base products. I have a foundation of their’s and I love it, along with the Laguna bronzer, which is a cult classic and their blushers.
I have heard a lot of people rave about the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer and I thought it was about time I tried it out. I brought mine for the Space NK website, see here I was colour matched to Light 2 Vanilla which is actually the perfect match for me.
First off, lets start with the packaging – it’s beautiful. I don’t think I have been disappointed with NARS packaging ever. It’s just so simple, but just looks inviting. I love it, although one slight niggle, the black lid is made of a material that allows everything to stick to it and is a bugger to remove so I always seem to have concealer all over it – whoops.
The applicator is a doe foot applicator which is my personal preference. I find it the easiest to apply onto my skin and I have a lot more control. As the name suggests the concealer is very creamy, it is so soft and is easy to apply and blend into the skin. I use a beauty blender to buff in my concealer but you really could use anything to buff this into the skin and it would work just as great.
I find this really comes into it’s own under my eyes. I suffer with lovely bags under my eyes and this covers them amazingly. I don’t find that it is too cakey which I sometimes find with concealers and as the name suggests it gives a lovely glow. This for me, gave it major brownie points. I do have products that I can use to brighten my under eye area on top of my concealer but who wants to use 2 different products when you can just use one!?
I was a little worried about the radiance on the rest of my face I didn’t think it would work with redness/spots but actually it covers everything up and doesn’t really bring much attention to the area. I do always powder after applying foundation and concealer so I think if I didn’t do this I would certainly be self conscious of everyone looking at areas of my face that I didn’t want them to look at.
Overall, I blooming love this concealer. It is everything I want in a concealer and I think it may of just beaten my Collection Lasting Perfecting Concealer to the top of my list. I can’t actually really find flaws in it. It works with every foundation I own, especially with my NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation see here for a review of another NARS product.
Let me know if you have tried this concealer and your thoughts of how it worked with your skin!
