Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer

LINKS// Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer | Chantilly | £23.00 | o.22oz

So I a couple of months ago I treated myself to a few Nars items. I picked up the Sheer Glow foundation, the Velvet Shadow Stick and the Radiant Creamy Concealer, which I will be reviewing today. I picked this up the lightest shade, Chantilly, which is basically a creamy white colour. I’m very fair skinned so as always I have to go for the lightest shade, which is normally still to dark for me, this being no exception. It really bugs me how the beauty mark is aimed towards tanned skinned, we need more for very pale and dark skinned girls and guys. We like makeup too.

Like the foundation, this concealer has a very light weight texture. It applies very easily, like a moisturizer and feels like you’re wearing nothing on your skin, whilst giving a good amount of coverage. It gives more coverage than the foundations and I find this really well under the eyes, as it gives a nice natural glow. It blends so easily and effortlessly, whether that be with a brush or a sponge. You can apply this over or under foundation, it works both ways, but I prefer putting it on after as it gives a really nice brightening under eye glow, which is also really nice on the tops of my cheekbones and along my nose bridge. As well as brightening I find it helps erase all signs of fatigue and hides skin blemishes and imperfections. The only problem I have with this is that I don’t find it works very well on spots, as it doesn’t cover them or help blend out the redness, even with a colour correct under it. I’ll use this for under my eyes or under my brown bone but for spots instead I go for my Collection Lasting Perfecting Concealer which in my opinion is the best Concealer in the world.

I’d give this Concealer a 7.4/10. Good for under eye and brown bone, not so good for spots and a little pricey for a concealer in my opinion.

The packaging is just the standard modern Nars packaging. A small tube with a black lid and the Nars logo on the side. Simple but Modern and decorative. It comes in a black cardboard box, which is good storage in the case the tube smashes, you’ll be able to save some of your makeup from being covered in concealer. This retails at £22.50 for 0.22 Oz. 6ml on the Nars website and pretty much every website. You can get it from Feelunique, house of Fraser, LookforFantastic and Asos.

If you’ve tried this concealer, let me know what you thought of it below, also let me know if there are any good drugstore dupes of this, because I’d love to try some.

Thanks for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

 

 

Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer Review

So I’ve been using this concealer for the last 3 months now, ever since my old one ran out. I really wanted to try a new one, so I picked up this one. I’d seen a lot of amazing reviews on it, with most people saying the best drugstore concealer is either this or the collection lasting perfection concealer. Now the collection concealer was the one I was using previously to this, and it was great. But I wanted to try something new and so this happened.

I have very fair/pale skin so I picked this up in ivory which is the lightest shade. Unlike the wake me up foundation, the lightest shade of this does not have pink undertones, but is just a nice stable light colour. The coverage is amazing and it applies very well. I will say my only problem with this is that although it does amazing on spots and blemishes it seems to crease quite badly when applied under the eyes. Apart from that little mishap it’s a really amazing concealer, easy to apply, last for a long time and it’s easy to take off.

Thanks for reading :)
