In my book, creamier is usually better. This applies to how I like my coffee, my desserts of choice, and most of the time, how I prefer my makeup products. This is definitely the case when it comes to concealer, where anything less than the perfect creamy texture is almost guaranteed to lead to caking, flaking, or just plain looking bad.
Now fresh off the New York Fashion Week circuit, artistry brand NARS has released its new Radiant Creamy Concealer — a build-able and (very importantly!) ultra blend-able concealer that passed the backstage, runway, real-way, and up-close photography test all with flying colors. The product is crafted for all skin types and provides medium to high build-able coverage in a natural finish with light diffusing technology that adds radiance and blurs imperfections. Despite the heavy duty performance of the concealer, the actual texture is light and silky and doesn’t add any kind of weight.
I tested a dollap of the concealer on an super fair patch on my wrist so I could monitor how the product and color wore and faded throughout the day. The color absorbs into the skin very quickly upon application so it never sits on top of it, therefore eliminating any concerns for creasing or looking ashy or dry. Once blended, the concealer also does. not. budge. making it super easy to apply and then forget about for the entire day. I’m someone who always feels the need to wear foundation or BB Cream, but I actually felt confident enough to go without after a strategic application of this new NARS concealer. Another winner from the brand and definitely a new staple product for me!
