NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard
I was able to try a couple of the shades, namely Custard and Ginger. Custard is my winter shade as it closely matched my skintone. I am guessing Ginger will be my summer shade. Custard is described as a yellow tone for light to medium complexion, while Ginger has a golden undertone for medium complexions.
The product comes in a transparent tube with a rubber cap similar to NARS' typical packaging. It has a doe foot applicator that is perfect for applying the product on the undereye area and to dot over different areas of the face.
The texture is amazing. It is so creamy and very easy to blend into the skin. I also like that it is neither too cakey nor too sheer. It just gives the right amount of opacity to cover blemishes and dark circles, and it is not too opaque or thick that it is difficult to blend. This is especially important for the undereye area because too much tugging and pulling on this delicate area can cause wrinkling and sagging in the long run. You only need a light touch when blending the product (use your ring finger for just the right amount of pressure) on your undereye area.
I've worn this over both mineral and liquid foundations (including BB creams), and the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer just melds into the skin and blends seamlessly with my foundation. It has light-diffusing properties that blur imperfections, and they are crease-proof and long-wearing. NARS also claims that it is non-comedogenic, dermatologist tested, paraben-free, alcohol-free and fragrance-free. I like that Custard really blends seamlessly into my skin. It looks very natural too despite the good coverage. I am really loving this product.
I think this is a great alternative product to my favorite concealer palette from Cinema Secrets. My Cinema Secrets concealer is more of a cake product, while the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is more of a cream concealer.
I honestly like this product and would definitely recommend this if you are looking for a really creamy, long-wearing concealer that blends easily into the skin, has good coverage and has bonus light-diffusing properties. This retails for $28 each and is available starting February 20, 2013 at NARS flagship boutiques and on narscosmetics.com.
