The newly launched NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer boasts a paraben-free, alcohol-free, fragrance-free and non-comedogenic formula to give you medium to high coverage in a natural, radiant finish and long-lasting results.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer review

Packaged in a portable tube the same size as NARS Larger Than Life Lip Gloss, the Radiant Creamy Concealer comes with a long, flat sponge applicator. There are 10 shades available that range from fair to dark shades in both cool and warm undertones. On my NC30 skin, Light 3 Honey and Medium 1 Custard were both great for the undereye area while Medium 2 Ginger was the perfect match for other areas. I also liked Light 1 Chantilly and Light 2 Vanilla for highlighting the bridge of the nose and Med/Dark 3 Amande to contour the sides.

Thanks to the hydrating skincare benefits, the concealer had the creamiest texture that felt lightweight and not the slightest drying. It blended into my skin seamlessly without creasing, caking or highlighting dry patches.

The medium and buildable coverage reminded me a lot of MAC Select Cover Up and Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Concealer. A few dots instantly brightened up my undereye area and wiped out any redness around my nose.

Finally, the finish, which was almost skin-like, meaning you could use the concealer alone or over foundation. Plus it did not require powder to set yet stayed on really well without fading on my dehydrated combination.

Definitely a new HG!

  1. Hey Phyllis – Although I’m interested in this concealer, I read a lot of criticisms about it mostly for its pigmentation. Do you think it would work well for my NC 20-25 dry skin with acne scars and hyperpigmentation?

    • Hi Susan,

      I’m surprised you’re seeing rants about the pigmentation since it worked beautifully on me and a few other bloggers too (makeupandbeautyblog, shadesofu, beautezine, vampyvarnish etc) so yes I would still recommend it.

      • I’m a dummy lol I read the wrong reviews. Thanks for letting me know…the one that struck me in particular was Musings of a Muse. The others were my bad reading. I’ll check this out. Thanks again.

        • No problem :)

  2. hi! on my NC25 skin which would be a good shade for highlighting my nose bridge as well as for my under eye area?

    • Hi Sam,

      I think you can use both Chantilly and Vanilla as highlighters as well. I’m just a teeny bit darker than you (I wear NC30).

  3. I dont know what to pick between Honey and Custard. I am between NC 25-30. TIA

    • Hi Anne, Honey is definitely more peachy than Custard. On NC25-30 skin, I would recommend Custard or Ginger instead.
