[REVIEW] NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla

I know, I’m late in the game. When everyone been using the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer by now, and a couple of Beauty Vloggers with dry skin started to raving about the new Too Faced Concealer, I’m just starting to try this oldie but goodie NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, lol. Even the cheapskate side of me still went stingy and only purchased the travel sized one, lolll.

Well, without further ado, here’s my thoughts of the famed NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer!

What it is:
An award-winning concealer that provides medium-to-full, buildable coverage and corrects, contours, highlights, and perfects.

What it does:
Ideal for all skin types, Radiant Creamy Concealer is a multi-action formula that instantly masks imperfections, blurs the look of lines and wrinkles, and hides dark circles and signs of fatigue. The botanical blend hydrates, firms, reduces redness, and strengthens the look of skin by helping its barrier retain moisture. Light-diffusing technology evens out the complexion so that skin appears fresh and natural with a radiant finish. It also delivers antioxidant protection to help shield skin against damaging free radicals.

The Mineral Tone Balancing Powder works to optically correct, not mask, imperfections. Unique powders even the skintone and provide invisible skin correction so skin that skin appears radiant, fresh, and natural. It’s infused with a Multi-Active Botanical Blend, which is loaded with magnolia bark extract, grape seed extract, and vitamin E to help hydrate, reduce the appearance of redness, and improve skin resilience by promoting moisture retention. Light-Diffusing Mineral Powder reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and helps even out skintone.

I realized that it’s been a while since I’m experimenting with concealer. I haven’t buy a new one since a year ago because I want to finish all of my concealers first, and… since my The Saem concealer finally come to an end, I can purchase a new one, yay! During the first time I open the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, I was really digging the packaging. Even the travel size has the same quality and finishes to the original one. It has this doff matte finish like other NARS packaging, combined with acrylic, which makes it very chic, though the doff finish tends to catches our fingerprints.

For the actual concealer, well, I think it’s a wee bit thicker than the said dupes, Maybelline Fit Me Concealer it blends easily into undereye, but, I don’t know, it will crease whenever I set it with powder. Nevertheless, it covers my undereye really well, though, and I’m glad that I choose Vanilla shade because it suits my skin really well. I know my friend keeps telling me that this concealer is far far better than Fit Me, but again, YMMV, and I have to say that I prefer Maybelline Fit Me Concealer better.

Will I repurchase it? Probably not, because, again, I found that Maybelline Fit Me Concealer suit my skin better. But, I’m intrigued with NARS Soft Matte Concealer since everyone been raving about it. Well, have you tried any of NARS Concealer? Which one do you like the best? What do you think about it compared to Too Faced new concealer and Tarte Shape Tape? Please do leave your thoughts in the comment section below! 😉
