NARS Creamy Radiance Concealer

Hey there ma peeps!
I can’t even begin to tell you how much I miss blogging. Sure you guys get something from me once a week. But that’s me in uni mode trying to share posts with you guys whilst being suffocated with assignments and studying. I can’t wait to be back in the throw of blogging. And it’s going to be excited because I am getting a bigger bedroom! And with that comes more space for storing my makeup and a better blog photo taking station.
I’m also going to eventually going to pick up some bits and pieces from Kmart for blogging props. Do you guys have any recommendations let me know!
As per usual it’s time for another review and today I’m going to be talking about a pretty hyped up one. I know I always find it interesting reading about hyped up makeup product and seeing if it really is worth all the hype it gets.


So sit back and let’s jump in!


Coverage:Okay so the coverage is pretty good. It’s not light and pointless but I wouldn’t call it bullet proof full coverage. So I’d say right in the middle of medium coverage to full coverage.


Longevity:It has pretty good lasting power. I mean it doesn’t come off too quickly but once again I wouldn’t call it absolutely bulletproof.


Formula:It is creamy and blendable but I do say that it lingers more on the dry side. I mean I do have dry/dehydrated skin so maybe it feels that way for me because of my skin type.


Packaging:Standard wand packing which kind of sucks. I mean if you’re going to be spot concealing it’s pretty difficult to maintain hygiene and it also means the concealer will run out quicker.


Under the eyes or for spots?: I hear a lot of people like to use this as a spot concealer. you could use it for both but it does have a slightly dry formula so beware.


Pros:It has good coverage, lasts a good amount of time and available in many shades.


Cons:It’s not that affordable, the wand makes it difficult to maintain hygiene, it runs out quickly and it does linger on the dry side


Price: $41.00 AUD


Shade range:It has quite a lot of shades


Availability:In Australia, you can get Nars from Mecca cosmetica, your international peeps I’m sure wherever you get your high end makeup from, you’ll find Nars.
Overall thoughts:This concealer is alright but for the price and how long it lasts, I don’t actually think it’s anything special. I mean it doesn’t beat the mac pro long wear in my opinion. I wouldn’t call this a must have concealer in my opinion but if you’re normally a Nars addict you may end up loving this.




Would I repurchase it?:Nope. It runs out way to quickly so it’s a bit of an annoying investment, I find it a pet peeve spending money on high end makeup that runs out too quickly.


And that wraps the post! Have you guys tried this concealer? Do you think it’s worth the hype? Tell me in the comments below! I hope you have an awesome day and I’ll see you in the next post.

    I wasn't that impressed with it. I have high expectations when it comes to high end makeup. I do want to try the urban decay concealer, smashbox concealer and too face concealer to see how I like them. x

    I love that concealer but I agree it's always running out. I always have to buy a new one which is very annoying! x

    I'm glad I tried it but it wasn't as magical as I thought it would be. But now that I've tried it I can stop pining over it haha

    I have heard so many great things about this concealer, but have yet to try it. I always get distracted with other products 😀

    Thanks for the honest review. I agree, it’s really pricey and runs out fast! 🙁

      It’s a pet peeve of mine when makeup runs out too quickly. Even with color pop makeup I love their stuff but i’m nervous for when they eventually dry out and how they’ll be.

    I really want to try out some NARS products but I feel like they are too overpriced for the amount you buy!

      That is very true. This concealer ran out quite quickly & it’ a pet peeve of mine to have a pricey product that runs out quickly.

    Ooh I love shopping for blog props, haha! This concealer’s medium coverage sounds idea for concealing blemishes/marks without looking cakey 🙂

      I am already on the look out and of course in the need of makeup brush holders (I am currently using some mugs because ran out of space haha). It does do good for that but it’s tricky maintain hygiene as it’s a wand concealer.

    I really want to try this concealer but I worry that because it is a little on the drying side that it wouldn’t work well on my dry under eye area :/

      It’s definitely not a very very hydrating one.

    I sometime mix concealer with a tiny amount of eye cream so it stops it from being too dry and leaves the skin looking more dewy than just sitting heavy under the eyes xx

      That’s a great tip! Does it affect the coverage?

        October 11, 2016 at 9:46 am

        I don’t find that it does, if you only use a little bit it can just take that dry / cake feeling away as sometimes my concealer just sits in my lines and can make them look worse! xxx

          That’s an awesome tip I am definitely going to try it. I personally find using a sponge to apply concealer makes a world of difference. I don’t like sponges for foundation but for concealer it’s everything.

    I love NARS products but idk..some days I like it, some days it’s too drying.

      I had that same experience, it just didn’t wow me. And it runs out far too quickly.

      Yes I wouldn’t call it my favorite Maybelline mascara but I do like it a lot

    I’m finding out NARS doesn’t give much product. LOL I wanted to try this, but I’ve been hesitant.

      I wouldn’t be surprised. I knew going in it wouldn’t last long since it was a wand style concealer. But highend makeup should not run out quickly.
