Review | Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer

One of the most talked about concealers in the beauty world has to be the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. So when I went to purchase my favourite concealer (the BareMinerals BareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer) but my shade was the only one out of stock, I thought I would try out the much raved about Nars HG concealer.
I've only heard a handful of disappointing reviews and as we all know, the only true way to know if it's going to work for you is to try it yourself. After looking at swatches online l finally decided on the shade Vanilla.

Great Coverage - The website describes it as medium to buildable full and I would completely agree with that. It's full enough to help hide those pesky dark circles and help brighten the under eye but not so full that it looks cakey.
Good Colour Range - Available in 10 shades, you're more than likely going to find a good colour match. Although I would say the easiest thing is probably to go to a counter and get colour matched, I fortunately got it right online but you don't want the hassle of having to return it.
Long Lasting - When I saw long lasting, I mean once it's set just like with any liquid product. But a light dusting of a setting powder and it was there all day which was the first product I've found that's managed to do that.

Price - One of the main turn offs for me is the price. Yes it's a good concealer but £22 is quite steep for 6.5ml of product.
Application - I don't know if this is down to the doe foot applicator or when it comes out the tube, the product gets scraped off but I find that I have to keep redipping the wand back into the tube to get more product out. I love the bareMinerals BareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer applicator which is similar but more flat so you don't lose too much product when you pull out the wand.

The pros far outweigh the cons so I will definitely be repurchasing this concealer again, I'll just be on the look out for discount codes!!

Have you tried this concealer? What are your thoughts?


  1. This is by far my favourite concealer and it actually lasts me a really long time, since I don't need much of it due to its high pigmentation. I really can't see myself being without it any more, I actually just repurchased it. The only cheaper concealer that comes near to this for me, is the Maybelline Fit me one :)

  2. I agree! This product is probably one of the most talked about concealers, besides the collection 2000 one, in the world of beauty blogging!

    I have never tried it personally, but would love to! I love how you have done this post in pros and cons too!

    Lovely blogpost!
