Ahhhh – I’ve finally managed to buy the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer that I’ve been after ever since I went along to the exclusive NARS pop-up event in Soho. I’ve promised myself to cut down on buying unnecessary makeup, but I suck at it! Especially when I know what’s on top of my makeup buying list. You know that feeling when you know or think you deserve a shopping treat because… you just do? Well when I walked into SPACE.NK, that’s exactly what I thought, I really knew what I was after and held on to the thought of purchasing that one beauty item. And fortunately, I managed to bin-off the splurge and contain myself. Yay!
I was first impressed by this concealer when one of the NARS makeup artist’s sat me down to pretty my eyes at the NARS event. As soon as I saw her twist open the wand of the concealer… well you know me, I got really excited. Couldn’t wait to see if this was the best thing ever! When I saw that my under-eyes were immaculate on top of the makeup I had been wearing since 8am that morning, you can imagine how impressed I was.
When first applied, it comes out in a rich and thick consistency, almost like a heavy coverage foundation – which is definite a plus! I’m not sure how you feel about concealers, but from the moment I apply it from the wand, I can definitely tell that it’s not a low budget concealer, oh no. It blends in seamlessly and gives me that flawless finish! It retails at £22 and even though it’s slightly pricey compared to the average price of concealers out there, I can honestly say that it’s worth every single penny.
I always apply my concealer before my foundation and then add a little more after foundation, before I begin to highlight and contour. This isn’t the typically recommended way of application, but it works best for me as I find that I get much better coverage this way.
I’m always on the hunt for a perfect concealer, let me know what you’ve tried by leaving a comment below 🙂 .
