Pros: a little bit goes a long way, color selection, excellent coverage, long-wearing


My skin is really fair, that’s why it’s a challenge to find the right shade of a concealer for me, even from Korean brands. My under eye dark circles are well visible and they leave me alone only when I’m on holiday.

I adore NARS cosmetics first of all for the color selection that they offer. The wide color range will always be great to find a color match for everybody. For me, I’ve found the perfect Creamy Concealer (also in the shade Chantilly) and a blusher in the shade Gaiety.

So, let’s pass over to the hero of the review.

Price: $33.00 not discounted.

Packaging. It’s a round plastic jar with a screw-on top cap. The design is rather typical for NARS products. Such impractical minimalism. The black top is sure to collect fingerprints.

Texture- It seems to be very thick in the packaging but it melts down on my skin and blends out easily. You can create a thin and lightweight coverage layer with it. A creamy concealer is trickier to achieve that. For summertime, I always opt for this Soft concealer rather than the Creamy option.

Shade- It’s neutral and really fair. So perfect for me! I can see the difference with the Creamy option only on my hand. The Creamy concealer appears fairer, though the Matte one looks more pink-toned.

On the white paper sheet, the difference is barely detectable, as well as on my face.

Coverage- Oh, it’s excellent. I like the way it conceals all the sign of fatigue under my eyes. At the same time, the coverage looks really natural. It’s difficult to go overboard with this concealer. I use my fingertips to apply it, even though I’m aware that a brush would be more hygienic. But still, fingertips are more preferable for me, since it’s more convenient to use them.

I also appreciate the coverage of my pimples. The product doesn’t accentuate flaking skin.

Spending- A little bit goes a long way. I guess this one is more economical than the Creamy version.

Wear time- Well, it mostly depends on the skin type you have. But on my combo under eye skin, it stays on the whole working day but my T-zone starts shining with oil towards the evening and I have to touch-up then. I wash it off with a cleansing oil and then use a facial cleanser. The product will never come off with regular water.

How does it affect my skin? Even though the product is claimed to be matte, it doesn’t dry out or tighten my skin at all.


OVERALL: Of course I highly recommend this concealer for purchasing. It’s perfect in all respects. The shade will flatter all the Snow Whites.

Thanks for your attention!
