NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Amande

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Amande. Quick Reference: In NARS Sheer Glow Foundation my shade is Macao.

I’ll be one of the first to admit, as much as I love some L’Oréal…I have a thing for high end brands. NARS especially. Is it the cheeky names for their products? Supervixen, Deep Throat, Orgasm, or Super Orgasm…you get the gist. Is it their social media presence on Twitter? Or is it the sophisticated packaging coupled with the wide shade range? I have no idea. Anyway, recently I ran out of concealer, and decided to try something new since Sephora had 3x the points for their VIB clients.

I had always heard great things about Radiant Creamy Concealer, so I figured I would try it instead of my usual Pro Longwear (I’m an NC45). Is MAC Pro Longwear great? Yes. Is this Radiant Creamy great as well? Yes, but in a different way. They both match my skin tone perfectly, however I personally find that I get more of a brightening effect with Pro Longwear. On the other hand, Radiant Creamy when swatched has tiny light reflecting particles. It delivers on being both radiant and creamy. It applies smoothly under the eyes, no tugging, no watery/serum consistency, just good ol’ creamy concealer to make you look like Starbucks for your order correct. Radiant Creamy has a wand — less product is wasted, while Pro Longwear as we all know, has a pump — which would always pump out too much product for me.

While Radiant Creamy will run you about 37CDN before taxes, and Pro Longwear will run you about 24CDN before taxes, I do think this concealer is worth it. On more than one occasion I wore it for over 12 hours, no under Smashbox Under Eye Primer, no face primer under the eyes, only my usual eye cream…and this DID NOT BUDGE. It didn’t fade away, nor did it crease on me. This is probably what impressed me the most. I applied it with a Beauty Blender in the morning, without setting with powder or touching up throughout the day and it lasted perfectly. I see this is as one of those investment products, but if you’re not into investing…then keep looking, because rarely does one find a concealer this good with no creasing.

  1. Just catching up on your blog and wanted to say that I am IN LOVE with this concealer! I thought it would be my go to under eye concealer (which it is great for due to its longevity like you mentioned) but I’m finding it amazing for blemishes!. I just put it on the back of my hand and apply with a brush and it does not budge the whole day which is so rare for me. Definitely will be repurchasing a backup/ one for my purse.

    • Yay for catching up on my blog. Ulu know how much that means to me 🙂
      And I find that it’s actually been lasting for a surprisingly long time, I’ve still been on that one tube since August. You’re right though! It works great for under eyes and blemishes. I may or may not have seen Custard and Vanilla in travel sizes on sephora.ca 🙂
