First Impressions | NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Chantilly

Friday, 17 April 2015

When I asked everyone during a #bbloggers chat whether the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer was worth the hype, the answer I got was a resounding 'yes'. £22 is a lot, but I read a tonne of reviews and did a lot of research before I parted with my money. Although I do own a few high end products, I usually ask for them for Christmas or my birthday so this is the first time I've really splashed out.

So what are my thoughts so far? Well, to put it simply, I love it. The coverage is amazing — I'd say it's medium to full, and easy to build if you use light layers. Nothing I've ever tried covers my dark circles the way this does. I tend to dot it underneath my eyes, and then buff it in using my fingers and the Real Techniques Buffing Brush (from the Core Collection). Thankfully, it doesn't settle in any fine lines.

I also use this for covering spots and the red line that runs across my nose, and it does a good job, although I'd probably suggest something a little less brightening for raised blemishes.

I've gotta give NARS credit for making a shade that is actually pale enough for me. Chantilly is an ideal match for my ghostly face, not too white and not too orange. That's the main problem with high street base products: they're always a shade too dark, that is if they try and cater for pale skin at all. In an ideal world I wouldn't have to spend so much to get such a perfect shade match, unless I wanted to of course, but for now this is definitely my go-to concealer. It does everything I want it to.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer costs £22, comes in ten shades, and is available here.
