Both Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer and Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer are very popular and often mentioned by many bloggers. Since I went through the trouble of trying many concealers in the hope of finding 'the one'. Although, they are not 'the one' but they are still amazing concealers nonetheless and it comes as a no surprise to me as to why people like them. However, as we all know Nars concealer is fairly expensive at £22 whilst the alternative Collection's concealer is only at £4.19. So before you think about forking out £22 for the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer give this comparison a little read because it might save you a lot of money.

Applicator - Lets start with the wands, shall we? Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer's and Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer's wands both have doe foot applicators but Nars' version has slightly larger and longer applicator. This doesn't affect how I apply my concealer though. Although, I find that Nars' wand collects way too much concealer and I have to scrape the excess product off every times I want to use it. This can get very annoying as the product collects around the lid, making it very messy. Whilst, Collection's version has a similar problem but I don't feel like it collects excessive amount of product per use and I have never felt the need to scrape off the product before using it.

Shade - Undoubtedly, this is where Nars wins hand down as it comes with a vast range of 10 shades. The shade I went for is Custard which has yellow tone for light to medium complexion. At first I was unsure between Custard and Honey but I went with the sales assistant's suggestion, which seems to be quite an alright fit. On the other hand, Collection only has the depressive 4 shades; light, cool medium, warm medium and dark. It would be absolutely fine if your skin tone goes well with one of their shade. I normally use medium which is fine most of the time but sometimes I've noticed that it added a bit of grey tone to my face which I didn't like (one of the main reason why I strayed from Collection's concealer).

Consistency - Both Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer and Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer has the same thick creamy consistency that is very easy to blend. In all honesty, I can barely tell them apart and I am sitting here with them on either side of my face.

Result - Excuse the scary red looking under eyes...I have very sensitive eyes and I surely do not get enough sleep. As you can probably tell that they are both very similar. They don't completely cover my dark circles but they make my eyes look a hella lot better. Although, with the thick creamy consistency they tend to settle and crease under my eyes a little bit. Nars appears to have a more radiant looking effect and it has a slightly yellower tone which I think looks better with my skin tone. 
Repurchase? -  I don't think Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer is different enough from the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer for me to ever repurchase. Especially when it's £22! Although, I think it would be understandable to buy Nars concealer if you have unusual skin tone because Nars has so many more shades for you to choose from. However, for now I will stick with my Collection's one.
