Worth the Hype? Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer

As some of you may have noticed, I am turning into quite the little Narsissist! I love their bases: both the Sheer Glow foundation and the Tinted Moisturiser are great. The other product Nars is renowned for among beauty bloggers is their Radiant Creamy Concealer. So is it worth the hype?

I wasn’t much of a concealer girl, to be honest I never quite understood them. They wouldn’t cover my dark circles at all and some creased horribly making me look a lot older than I actually am. Until I tried the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer: I finally understood what all the fuss was about!

This Nars Concealer actually covers up my dark circles, except on the most horrible sleepless nights. It just makes my face look flawless. I use an eye cream underneath to make this slide on smoother and prevent any creasing. It just look great and I finally understand why women can’t live without a proper concealer.

I happen to have two shades of the concealer: Light2 Vanilla and Light3 Honey. I was color matched in the depth of winter to Vanilla, but it is just a hint too light so I picked up Honey during my trip to San Francisco. This is too dark on its own, but I combine the two to create my own perfect shade. Next time, I will probably try Custard for my summer shade.

I absolutely love this concealer, I haven’t found anything like it in the drugstore. Let me know if you have any concealer tips? Which should I try next?


Het is sommigen van jullie misschien opgevallen dat ik ben verandert in een kleine Narsissist! Ik ben dol op de basis van Nars: zowel de Sheer Glow foundation als de Tinted Moisturiser zijn super. Het andere product waar Nars echt op bekend staat onder beauty bloggers is de Radiant Creamy Concealer. Is die ook de moeite waard?

Ik was nooit echt een concealer gebruiker, ik begreep nooit zo wat nou precies de bedoeling was. Ze deden weinig om mijn donkere kringen weg te werken en sommigen kropen erg in de fijne lijntjes rond mijn ogen waardoor ik er veel ouder uitzag. Tot ik de Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer probeerde: toen begreep ik eindelijk wat nou het voordeel van concealer was!

Deze Nars Concealer bedekt echt mijn donkere kringen, behalve op de meest verschrikkelijke slapeloze nachten. Het zorgt ervoor dat mijn gezicht er echt vlekkeloos uitziet. Ik gebruik een lichte oogcrème om te zorgen dat de concealer makkelijk aan te brengen is en minder in de lijntjes trekt. Het geheel ziet er gewoon verzorgt en af uit: ik begrijp eindelijk waarom vrouwen niet zonder concealer kunnen.

Ik heb twee kleuren van deze concealer: Light2 Vanilla en Light3 Honey. Ik werd midden in de winter gematcht met zvinalla, maar die is net een tintje te licht dus tijdens mijn trip naar San Francisco kocht ik Honey. Die is dan weer net te donker, maar als ik ze combineer heb ik de perfecte kleur. Volgende keer probeer ik waarschijnlijk Custard voor mijn zomer kleur.

Ik ben echt dol op deze concealer, ik heb niks vergelijkbaars kunnen vinden bij goedkopere merken. Hebben jullie nog concealer tips? Welke moet ik volgende keer proberen?

    I have heard so much about this concealer! I really enjoy concealer when I want a bit of coverage but don’t feel like wearing foundation. I really like Elizabeth Arden’s Ceramide Ultra Lift and Firm Concealer for that. NARS products in general sound amazing and I love the packaging. It’s so simple but so sleek. 😀

    I bought Custard and didn’t like–returned it within the week. I tested out Ginger and it seemed like such a better match and I might go back and buy it.

      As you can tell from the fact I have two, I also struggle a little with the colors. It is a little tricky to pick the right one 🙂

    I love this stuff! I got my makeup done at the Nars counter recently and they gave me a tip: gently tap your concealer into place instead of spreading it with your fingers or with a brush. It takes a bit longer but apparently helps it look more natural and doesn’t settle into fine lines as much 🙂

      Nars staff are just great right?! I loved all of their advice and they were so patient 🙂
      The patting really helps and I have also learned you should apply a little triangle in stead of a half moon…sounds a bit weird but I might do a post on it soon to explain better.

        I think I may do in Belfast Anne, so I’ll have to pop up over the next few weeks and check it out – I’ve went through a few drugstore concealers and they just aren’t cutting it at all, even the ones that seem to get alot of hype aren’t great for me. Maybe I just have weird expensive-product-craving skin lol x

    This is my ride or die concealer forever lol! I use it in the ‘Custard’ shade. I can wear it on its own and it’s still amazing but I usually mix this with my Mac Pro Long Wear Concealer and they just create the perfect mix for me. Yay so glad it worked out for you! Nars is the best.

      Exact, de meeste zijn echt zinloos. Heb Essence nog niet geprobeerd en lekker goedkoop dus niet zo erg als t niet helemaal werkt.
      Deze is natuurlijk wel even wat duurder maar wat mij betreft wel de centjes waard.

    Lovvee this! I too wasn’t much of s Concealer girl until I tried this! Coincidentally Vanilla is in the post somewhere on its way 🙂 I currently have Custard & think it will be perfect for you if you’re mixibg these two. Another amazing concealer is the Mac Pro Longwear one. Only drawback is that it comes with pump & not an applicator but the coverage, creaseless finish & colour range is great!

        Yes it’s worth a try! I’m not much of a fan of their foundations too :/ some have too light coverage, others make it break out… but that concealer is really good 🙂 the Nars one is easier to apply due to the applicator though.
