Ideal for all skin types, new NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer boasts a luxuriously smooth texture enriched with hydrating skincare benefits. Light diffusing technology blurs imperfections and fine lines, and evens skin tone without masking skin’s natural coloring. Skin glows with new radiance over or under foundation – and looks beautiful even when bare. Perfect as a complement to Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF30 or layered with SheerMatte & Sheer Glow Foundation.
I originally used the compact duo – Ginger/Custard and I often wish it was a bit creamier, making it easier to blend. However, I did like that I could blend the colors together to get a personalized match. I was lucky to receive a sample of the new concealer from the NARS folks in both Ginger and Custard.
Ginger – golden undertone for medium complexion;
Custard – yellow undertone for light to medium complexion.
Here’s a swatch on my arms, for reference I use Annapurna, Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer and Syracuse Sheer Glow or Sheer Matte Foundations.
It has a long slanted doe foot applicator.
You can apply this directly under your eyes but I like to swipe Ginger on the top of my hand with a small dab of Custard added. I take my concealer brush, blend the colors together and apply under my eyes. It takes mere seconds to blend with my ring finger.
**Always remember to tap with your ring finger because it has the least amount of muscle**
I apply this over my tinted moisturizer and then use NARS Pressed Powder (Mountain) to set it. I get at least eight hours of wear time. I am very pleased with this new formula and tube. I have yet to try this alone without any foundation or tinted moisturizer. Also, I only use this to brighten the area under my eyes so I can’t comment on how well this covers other discolorations on the complexion. I will say this will help make you look awake when you clearly need another hour of sleep.
Mothers, like me, rejoice! Okay you single party people, you can benefit from this, too!
