NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer 'Custard' Review ❤


Hi Lovelies!
Hope you're doing well and that your week has been good so far? I'm going to be pretty glad when this week is over due to a few stressful situations! However, I'm super happy to have a beautiful new blog layout thanks to the fantastic pipdig team who are just faultless with their service. I'm still playing around with a few ideas and the potential development of a brand new header and website, but that's all working progress for now! As a few of you already know I'm not the best sleeper and I do suffer with pesky dark circles, so I am forever on the hunt for the best concealer to do the job. I hope you enjoy tonight's review and I would love to hear from you in the comments section below. You can also use my social media icons to the right hand side to get hold of me a little quicker if you would like

It took me a while to purchase this concealer as I have quite a few concealer’s that I love and that I needed to use up, so even though I lusted after this for what seems like years… I actually never really needed it. A little while ago I had a full makeover at my local NARS counter for wedding, which was amazing! And I decided to pick up a few goodies whilst I was there. The NARS Creamy Concealer has serious HG status in the beauty world and I’ve really enjoyed using it. It’s definitely a step up in the coverage department and I’ve noticed quite a big difference between blending this and my Clarins Instant Concealer, which is a lot more fluid. I love the way it pretty much covers up every under-eye problem and the fact that it’s got good enough coverage to be used all over my face… It really can do everything and it’s a must when I’m creating a flawless look. It's light diffusing and hydrating properties also make it pretty comfortable to wear considering it offers a medium/full coverage.

The shade I have is called 'Custard' which is a yellow toned shade perfect for light to medium complexions. I find this shade light enough to brighten my under-eye area, but not to light to use it all over my face with my foundation.. It really is a fantastic shade! However,  I must admit even though I use it on a daily basis I’m not sure if I will re-purchase, as I do find it ever so slightly uncomfortable/drying even though it’s a lot more comfortable than MAC Pro Longwear! In terms of the product overall I adore the packaging and I always prefer this style, especially for travelling. I also love how it covers up a multitude of sins without looking super cakey. However, I have a feeling that I could find a pretty good dupe for this in boots and after having a quick scan across the Internet I’ve already found a few potential dupes to pick up and try. I’m currently half way through using this concealer and I’m more than happy to have it in my collection, but I think when it runs out I may look to boots for a cheaper option or maybe the new concealer from Urban Decay! 
I would love to hear your thoughts on my review… Have you tried this concealer and does it have HG status for you?

  1. I do like this concealer, it isn't quite HG status for me, but I've found that mixing it with MAC's prep & prime eye highlighter makes the perfect undereye highlight. I get what you mean about the dry feel sometimes, so I make sure my eye area is really well hydrated, otherwise it gets crepey.

  6. Sounds nice and I've heard great things about the concealer but the price puts me off. Maybe one day if I want to splurge.

  7. Oh this is definitely the first mixed review I've read on this! I do really want to try this concealer and in the past I've always been put off by the price-tag, but the packaging as always with NARS is so lovely. I've heard that the UD Naked concealer is very similar to this but I'm currently using Bourjois' Healthy Balance concealer and I really get on with it (and its price too) :) x

  10. I've heard so many good things about this concealer as well, and it is actually on my wishlist as I thought it looks quite moisturising - however I do feel a bit wary now hearing that you found it a bit drying ! I may have to try it on in store and see how I feel, but I am so funny about using testers urgh!

    The Urban Decay concealer looks really good, I definitely plan on trying that as well so maybe that one will be a bit more moisturising. Fingers crossed!
