The Make-Up: NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer


If you follow me on twitter, you will have seen that I have been hunting down NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla. At one point, I rang every NARS counter I could reach in London and it was sold out everywhere. I was pretty much giving up finding it until I was browsing Space NK late at night and saw they had it in stock. I had to have it so I put a cheeky order in, along with something else but that will be revealed soon!

A month or so ago, I ran out of Origins Plantscription concealer and have been using Bourjois Healthy Mix concealer until now. Before I bought it, I had tried the NARS one on a counter twice and it was love. I have no idea why I didn't buy it the first time I tried it because it was hell once I realised how much I loved it. It's a lightweight formula, which is buildable with coverage, depending on how you like to wear it. They put 'radiant' into the title for a reason as because of the light diffusing technology, it has a luminous finish. Concealers have a tendency to go patchy and cling to any dry patches on my face, particularly underneath my eyes. Except this one. When NARS say it's creamy, they mean creamy. I use the doe foot applicator to dap it on anywhere where I might need it before blending it with the Real Technique Setting Brush. This shade matches me perfectly, for both on the face and underneath my eyes. But I have a feeling for darker skin tones, people might struggle finding a shade to match.

I don't think any concealer can beat this one in my eyes, have you tried it yet?
