NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer - group shot

Where have you been all my life, NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer??? Whoa, talk about a concealer that can do it all. While it has been mostly touted as great covering under eye darkness, I have found it is a fantastic spot/blemish concealer as well. The balanced, buildable formula is a true go-to for me these days.

The formula is creamy and hydrating, hence the radiant properties. While it has a thin texture, I’d say the coverage is moderate to full. A little bit goes a long way. Plus, it is buildable, so you can always add more if you feel you need a bit more coverage.

The formula also contains hydrating skin care. Light diffusing technology helps blur imperfections. And the pigment blends seamlessly into my natural coloring.

I can get a full day of wear out of this. While it is crease-less, I’ve found it does best on freshly moisturized skin – any dryness can interfere with its blendability.

SHADES INCLUDE (from lightest to darkest):
  • CHANTILLY: true ivory shade for fairest complexions
  • VANILLA:  tiny cast of pink for the fair complexion
  • HONEY: warm peach tone for light to medium complexion
  • CUSTARD: yellow tone for light to medium complexion
  • GINGER: golden undertone for medium complexion
  • BISCUIT: medium dark natural balance of pink and yellow undertones
  • CARAMEL: medium dark yellow and golden undertones
  • AMDANDE: medium dark with golden olive undertones
  • CAFÉ: dark shade with warm red undertones
  • CACAO: dark shade with deep gold to brown undertones

note: Ginger is my preferred shade. I wear Santa Fe in the Sheer Glow Foundation and St. Morti in Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 (although this winter I should lighten up with the new Terre Neuve). I was surprised I was this dark on the spectrum, but I prefer a concealer that matches my skin tone instead of one shade lighter.
