NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer | Review

Have you ever noticed how few concealers when you apply them on your dark circles end up looking sort of grayish? That happens to me all the time. Concealers with yellowish tones don’t cancel out the purple or blue areas and they end up looking gray like I’m zombie.

Peach color correct (works best for medium and dark skin tones) cancel out those purple or blue tones leaving the under-eye area looking brighter, more refreshed and definitely not gray, LOL!

I am in the shade Ginger and it works great it cancelling out the darkness around my eyes without having to use any corrector. I have been hearing so many good things about this concealer from the time it released and finally I gave it a try and I absolutely love it. The texture is neither too thick nor thin and it has medium consistency and blends so easily into skin without creasing and that’s the best part I like about it.It’s so creamy like the name suggest and glides on easily. I have tried so many concealers and this one has been my most loved from high-end side. You just need a tad bit of this concealer and it gives a full coverage. In terms of longevity, it lasts for a pretty good while; I would say about eight hours without creasing. I highly recommend using a loose powder to set any concealer as it avoids any concealer to settle into the fine lines and also it gives flawless airbrushed look. This has become my go to concealer and pretty much using every single day.

There are so many shades for each skin tone to choose from. The packaging is very simple like any other concealer. It comes in as tube with a applicator which makes it easy to use and how much product to use is in your control.

I highly recommend this concealer to everyone if you are looking for a full coverage concealer as it totally worth every penny. Have you tried any other full coverage concealer? Which is your favorite concealer? I would love to know your thoughts. Thanks for reading!

My Review:

Hands down these are my Holy Grail concealer. I am literally obsessed with these concealers. L.A Girl for providing a huge range of concealers for every skin tone on earth. You can literally just pick one to cover your blemishes (I can guarantee you will find your exact match) to conceal under eye bags, to contour, and to highlight–ALL from this concealer line alone.

It has a thick formula but it’s not too drying on the skin. It sets really well and you can choose to further set it with a setting powder. It blends out easily. The brush-like tip helps target the application better and I blend it out with my Real Techniques Miracle Sponge. It is medium-full coverage concealer; a little dab goes a long way and does the job well. In terms of longevity, it lasts for a pretty good while; I would say about six hours without creasing which is pretty good for a drug store concealer. I mainly love using these for highlighting and contouring. I apply my NYX Dark Circle Concealer to cancel out the darkness under my eyes and then apply this concealer in the shade Pure Beige. It gives amazing highlighted look and covers my dark circles as well. For my contour, I use the shade Beautiful Bronze which is a nice warm bronzy brown shade and suits my skin tone well as a contour shade. I am NC 40 and this shade look lovely and perfect for contouring.

Although, the product looks small (it is only 8g), it has lasted me for a while. These are so inexpensive and work just as MAC Pro Long-wear Concealer.

About the packaging, it comes in a basic squeeze tube with a secure cap. The brush-like tip which is useful in spot application but I think it might get little messy.  Personally, I find it difficult to dispense the product from the tube, sometimes I get a decent amount, sometimes none and other times too much. It’s a bit of a hit and miss. But overall packaging is cute and travel friendly and the good thing is it comes in a clear/transparent tube so you can see what shade you need.

 

I highly recommend these and you can finally get a great concealer that won’t make you have to miss a partyor dinner!!

Pros:

  • Inexpensive
  • Blends out easily
  • Gives good coverage
  • Long lasting staying power

Cons:

  • Messy packaging

Price:  Price varies from $2.99 to 4.99

NYX Dark Circle Concealer

One of the major beauty problem are Dark circles. I have used many concealers of different brands and recently I came across NYX dark circle concealer and thought of giving it a try and I am glad I did.

Description:

A serious solution for one of beauty’s most challenging problems! No fancy names just a product that can be counted on to do the job. The product glides on without looking thick or obvious. Coconut oil provides intensive moisture and ensures no caking. The subtle hint of orange counteracts the appearance of dark circles while natural skin-toned pigments work in unison to provide the ultimate coverage.

My Verdict:

The product comes in a mini compact jar which is good for travel and also not much of product is wasted but it can be unhygienic to directly take from jar so I make sure my hands are clean before using it.

I got this NYX Dark Circle concealer in the shade Medium. It has a slight peachy orangey color which counteracts blue and purple in the under eye area.  In my opinion, it’s more of a dark circle corrector, rather than concealer because it cover ups my dark circles which is amazing but doesn’t brighten my under eye so I apply a shade lighter of any concealer to highlight my under eyes. When I want to go minimal look I apply this product which hides my dark circles like a dream and apply a BB cream or a tinted moisturizer.

I have been using this product for a month now and I must say a little product goes a long way. I take my ring finger and just tap firmly under my eye to blow the product out and the darkness disappears. The most important part is always set you’re under eye with a powder when using a concealer to avoid creases.It lasts all day long with no smudging or creeping into fine lines.

I love the texture. It contains coconut oil which makes it smooth and creamy so it gets very easy to blend. There are only 4 shades available so not too many options. I’m dead chuffed with this product for correcting my dark circles and it’s so inexpensive.

Pros:

  • Easy to apply
  • Blends well
  • Covers well
  • Goes on smoothly
  • Travel friendly
  • Inexpensive

Cons:

  • Unhygienic packaging
  • Not  many shade options
