Ahh....the highly coveted Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer with its hefty price tag of £22. I expected it to be high coverage but at the same time does not make my under eyes look cakey. These are the qualities I look for in a concealer.
Packaging: Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer comes in simple black box with Nars logo. Inside the box, the packaging of the concealer is sturdy and clear with black rubberised screw top. I think the packaging is okay, it's sturdy and due to square tube shape it doesn't roll around on your makeup table. However, there is a problem with this packaging as you continue to use the concealer, the concealer will gather up at the lid and makes it all messy. I hate when things get messy in my makeup bag.
Applicator: Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer comes with a doe-foot applicator very similar to the Collection Concealer (which I really like and it is very similar to Nars'). It does its job of distributing the product but I don't find it to be anything special.
Texture & Consistency: As the name suggested, this concealer is very creamy but at the same time it is quite light. It doesn't feel heavy on your skin and it is easy to blend. It also has a fairly high coverage.
Finish: The shade I've picked is Custard as I find this to be perfect match for my NC25-30 skin tone. It has yellow tone and it is perfect for people with light to medium complexion. The concealer does cover my dark circles very well and it also brighten up my under eye area too. However, my problem with this concealer is that if I accidentally use a tiny hint too much, my under eye can look very cakey.
Use: Apply 2-3 dots under the eyes area and blend either using fingers, concealer brush or sponge. I prefer blending this concealer with a brush because it just gives better finish.
Problem: It can be cakey. I don't think that it works that well with people with dry skin because it does make dry patches more visible. I am also not a fan of how pricey this concealer is either. I would suggest getting the Collection Last Perfection Concealer instead if you are looking for something similar to this.
Would I repurchase or recommend this?: I won't repurchase it because I have found a better concealer that fits my high coverage and non-cakey requirement. I don't think I will recommend it to anyone either due to the price. Dry skin girls, please step away from this concealer, it is not meant to be for us.
