REVIEW // NARS CONCEALERS
[blog list image by: Fablouise]
I’ve been raving about the NARS concealers on instagram and I’ve used them quite a bit on shoots. So I feel like I’m finally ready to give you the full run down here 🙂
I bought the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Ginger & Custard. This is my all time favourite concealer! It is medium coverage but builds very quickly. It has a velvet finish and has a little dewiness which is nice. It works wonders under the eyes because it’s light enough for that delicate skin, it doesn’t crease or move easily, it doesn’t have a powdery finish and it lasts.
I use the Custard concealer and it has the perfect tone to help reduce the look of my dark circles. I like a dewy finish in my foundation too, so I can even use this concealer on my face.
I bought the Soft Matte Complete Concealer in Custard & Caramel. This concealer is max coverage and has a matte, powdery finish. It does not move but it does crease and it is waaaaay to heavy to use under the eyes. This concealer is for discolouration, acne and younger users who have more support in their skin. I don’t use this nearly as much as the Radiant concealer and I don’t use it on myself at all.
Nars offers two opposite products that absolutely do what they say they’re going to do. No “middle-ground” nonsense here! Both concealers definitely have a place in a makeup artists’ kit and there are a range of colours to choose from although, as usual, there could be a MUCH wider selection of darker shades.
Nars UK offer a Pro Program which makes their products really affordable for your kit, especially given the quality of the product.
For most people just wearing makeup on a day to day basis, I’d recommend the Radiant concealer. Much easier to use, more forgiving and buildable if you need it.
