Aside from the famous Nars Sheer Glow foundation, I also decided to test one of the most popular concealers of all time: the Nars Radiant Creamy concealer. I’ve heard literally everyone talk about this concealer so when I got the chance to buy it, I felt like I just had to. Today it’s time for the review. If you’re interested in finding out whether or not this is actually worth the hype (and the money), make sure you continue reading!
The Nars Radiant Creamy concealer comes in a gorgeous and classic packaging. It’s very simple, clean and elegant like we’re used to from Nars and I really like the look of it. The concealer comes in little tube and a slanted sponge applicator to apply it with.
There are lots of different shades available in their range, ranging from nearly white to darker colours. I, once again, decided to buy the lightest shade I could find which is called Chantilly. This colour matches my skin perfectly. It’s a tad bit lighter which will create a brightening effect but it’s not too light in a way it looks kinda funky.
The Nars Radiant Creamy concealer has a very nice, yet unique, texture. It’s not a very thick concealer, it’s not very runny and it’s also not in between. It’s something completely different from what I’m used to. It’s slightly sticky and tacky but not in a bad way. This tackiness actually makes sure this concealer stays in place all day, which is obviously what you want.
Because it’s slightly tacky it does require you to blend it in really well. If you don’t do this, it might start looking weird and cakey. While working with this concealer I also recommend quickly setting it after completely blending it in to prevent it from getting into the fine lines and accentuating that. If you powder on time, this won’t happen.
Coverage wise it’s quite okay. On the picture it looks worse than it actually is, but because I did feel the need to add in some kind of picture showing the difference, I inserted it anyways. As you can tell by looking at the inner corners of my eyes, it really takes away the blueness and makes you eye area look way more bright and alive. It actually kinda lifts the eye which helps making you look awake and alive too.
Like I said this concealer is a bit sticky and therefore it stays in place really well. This is obviously a great thing, however, when I wore this in combination with the Nars Sheer Glow foundation which didn’t stay in place really well, it did look quite weird at the end of the day because most of the foundation was gone but the concealer was still there. Of course using another foundation is a quick fix for that, but I felt like I did need to mention this aspect of the concealer.
If this really is my favourite concealer ever, I’m not sure. I guess it’s equal to my beloved Lancome Softening Long-Lasting concealer, which is about the same price. Colour wise I do prefer this one and therefore I’d recommend this one over the Lancome one if you’re really pale like me and want something in a shade lighter than your complexion or if you’re just on the hunt for a really light concealer in general.
That was it for today’s review. I hope you enjoyed reading it and be sure to let me know if you have ever given this super popular concealer a try, and if so let me know how you like it!
