I’ve recently watched so many beautiful video bloggers show their makeup routines in their “Get ready with me” videos. The common denominator of a fabulous finished look with perfect contouring and coverage has consistently been achieved with NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. This concealer has WOWED me with how great the coverage is and how the color gets brighter when you layer this fancy NARS concealer! Another great benefit of this creamy concealer is the skin illuminating, light reflective finish this concealer has when it dries. My favorite thing about the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer is the thick consistency – it really is creamy.
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer for Acne
Besides the amazing coverage and results, I have peace of mind knowing all the ingredients are safe for my skin! This concealer won’t cause any breakouts! In fact, the thick creamy texture makes it perfect for covering acne or acne scars. This isn’t an oily concealer either, making it again great for acne or great for acne-prone skin. This concealer is Paraben-free, Alcohol free, Synthetic fragrance free, and won’t clog pores.
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer for Dark Circles
It’s a lightweight concealer, making it best for use under the eyes. You defiantly want a lightweight concealer for under the eyes so it won’t show wrinkles or crease too heavily. Now I say light weight because it’s highly pigmented and you don’t need a lot of product, however you can build it up thick. And if you build it up too thick, it may crease. When the product is built up to two – three layers, it completely conceals dark under eye circles. That’s how the products behaves without a primer. If you have under eye wrinkles, you’re going to want a good primer under this concealer.

Before and After Photos of NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer Review
The above photo shows my DARK under eye circles and how I covered them quickly with the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer with 1 application!
This NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is perfect for my under eye area. This concealer has a luxurious texture that’s light weight, buildabe coverage and gives you a smoother complexion. This NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is the best concealer I’ve worked with! It conceals dark under eye circles and you’ll feel like a professional makeup artist when you apply this NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer 😉
Pictured below, the sponge wand is great for application. I prefer it to the trendy built-in brush wand applicators. Just pat the wand onto your dark circles and blend with your fingers or the sponge applicator. You can allow it to dry and add another layer. I like to add 2 layers to get a full coverage.
