Worth The Hype? NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

After hearing so many rave reviews about this concealer, I couldn’t resist picking it up while in New York a couple of weeks back (NARS is a bit cheaper over there, so it’s even more tempting!) It’s their Radiant Creamy Concealer. Every blogger worth their salt has been chatting about this recently, whether it’s on their blog or (the best recommendation of all when coming from one blogger to another…) through word of mouth.

I haven’t been overly taken with any of the NARS’ concealers I’ve used in the past, so was intrigued to try this new liquid formula…

The first thing I noticed about this concealer is that it comes in an impressive 10 different shades. The one I chose was Honey and it’s a great match for me.

The packaging is identical to their Larger Than Life lipglosses, but with a doefoot applicator. As the name would suggest, it is very creamy in consistency, and while it is thick, it blends into the skin nicely and isn’t cakey at all. It actually reminds me a lot of my Holy Grail concealer Collection 2000’s Lasting Perfect, but something about this is just better…

I think it may be just a smidgeon less drying than the Collection 2000 one, but either way, the coverage is high, yet it’s still light enough to be used under the eye as well as on any pesky blemishes. The staying power is great too, I only need one or two top ups throughout the day to keep my skin looking flawless.

Overall, it’s an amazing all round concealer that I would definitely recommend to anyone. In terms of skin type, I know people of all skin types who have raved about this product, so I would happily say it’s suitable for everyone.

It is rather pricey at £21 for 15ml, but I can safely say that this is my current favourite conealer. I reach for this one over all of my others and that’s got to be a good sign, right?!

Have any of you tried this?
