My Experience with  NARS – Radiant Creamy Concealer Ginger

Concealer is one of the must have products in my makeup collection. As most of the brown girls, I suffer from hyperpigmentation under the eyes, around the mouth and some acne scarring. I tend to use a concealer to cover up these imperfections on my face using and stay away from foundation. A perfect concealer and a light-medium coverage BB/CC cream is what all I need to get a perfect everyday look to work/shopping.

Packaging: It has a classic NARS packaging. It looks pretty much like their lip-glosses with a doe-foot applicator wand which makes it easy to apply the concealer on the problem spots and also you have control over the amount of product you apply.

Coverage and Finish: It is a medium-full coverage concealer that perfectly hides the darkness/redness and blemishes on the skin. This concealer is easy to blend and goes on very smooth. It doesn’t lookcakey even with two coats but make sure to prep your under eyes if you suffer with dry skin else it can enhance the dry patches on the skin. It doesn’t settle into the fine lines under the eyes and gives a matte finish without the need for a setting powder.
Staying Power: It stays on without budging and creasing till you remove it from the face.
Talking about the other claims like improving the condition of the skin, building moisture levels etc., I haven’t noticed any difference in the overall texture of the skin but it definitely helps to retain moisture and doesn’t seem to make your under eyes dry throughout the day and also helps to brighten up cover the fine lines giving a radiant glow to the face.
Smell: There is no fragrance.

Pros of  NARS – Radiant Creamy Concealer Ginger:

• Available in a wide range of colors to match every skin tone.
• Medium-full coverage that helps to conceal very dark under eyes and blemishes without the need for a color corrector.
• Helps to brighten the under eye area by giving a natural glow and hiding the fine lines.
• Doesn’t dry out the skin and doesn’t look cakey when layered.
• Helps to blur out the imperfections on the face and reduces the need to apply foundation.
• Doesn’t crease and settle in the fine lines.
• Very long-lasting.
• Dermatologist tested non-comodeogenic.
• Doesn’t contain alcohol and fragrance-free.
• Little goes a long way.

Cons of  NARS – Radiant Creamy Concealer Ginger:

• None.
I will definitely repurchase this product when I run out of it.

Definitely on my to-buy list. Just a matter of deciding between Ginger and Custard. What is your shade at MAC, Bhargavi? 🙂
