Review: Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Medium 1 Custard

On a recent trip to Sephora (to pick up the new Nars all day luminous weightless foundation) I decided to try out the Nars radiant creamy concealer. If you haven’t seen my review for the Nars foundation I will leave the link here:Nars foundation

I have heard so many people rave about this concealer.  I was always hesitant to pick it up because it is a little pricier at $29.  There are ten shades offered in this line. It is meant to give a luminous finish while evening out skin.  It claims to be:

  • A lightweight medium-full coverage that is buildable
  • Hydrating
  • Contains multi-action skincare benefits
  • Contains light diffusing technology to create a softer, smoother complexion while instantly obscuring imperfections and diminishing fine lines and signs of fatigue
  • Long wearing
  • Crease proof
  • Paraben free, alcohol free, synthetic fragrance free
  • Non Comedogenic

Wow!  That is a long list!!!  Does it live up to all of those claims?

  1. This concealer is definitely lightweight.  I love that it blended seamlessly and looked so natural yet covered so well.
  2. It didn’t cling to any of my dry spots and did really well underneath my eyes.  I didn’t feel the need to add any extra moisture because this did so well.
  3. This definitely brightened my under eye area and made me look wide awake (even when I wasn’t).  It didn’t settle into my fine lines and didn’t crease at all throughout the day!  I’ve had concealers settle into fine lines and it ages me, but this kept me looking young and wonderful!
  4. It wore beautifully all day and did not crease.
  5. It did not give me any kind of allergic reaction and there was no hideous scent.

I purchased this in the shade Medium 1 Custard and I think it is the perfect shade for me.  A little bit goes a long way with this.  I use one swipe to cover both eyes and blend in with my fingertips.  It blends so easily.  I was shocked at how much it covered and how natural is looks considering how thin the consistency is.

Even though this is a little pricy, I really do love this concealer.  My go to concealer has a high spf in it (which I love), but makes it bad for flash photography.  So this is perfect for those events when I know pictures will be taken.  Plus, the fact that I need so little of it at a time helps me justify the price.  Have you given this a try?
