The NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer has a cult following; most people rave about it and some claim it hasn’t lived up to the hype surrounding it.

Says NARS:

Coveted by artists for its luxurious texture and luminous finish, new Radiant Creamy Concealer evens skin with lightweight medium to high buildable coverage. Enriched with hydrating, multi-action skincare benefits and light diffusing technology, it creates a softer, smoother complexion while instantly obscuring imperfections and diminishing fine lines and signs of fatigue.

  • Long wearing and crease-proof

  • Paraben-free, Alcohol free, Synthetic fragrance free, Non comedogenic

I have this concealer in the shade Custard, which I will review and compare with the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in shade 20 Sand Sable (review here).
