NARS Concealer (Re)Launches

NARS Concealer boasts a lightweight, creamy texture enriched with Vitamin E for crease-resistant coverage that stays in place all day. Aside from new slim packaging, the formula will grow its shade range from a total of six shades to ten to help achieve a NARS Immaculate Complexion. Whether applied to camouflage darkness under the eyes or to reduce the appearance of redness and skin imperfections, the new range reaches a broader scope of skintones and is targeted to more closely match NARS’ Sheer Matte & Sheer Glow Foundation shades. Apply with a brush for even application and precise spot coverage.

    YES! I already like the concealers as they are, but Vanilla has always been too dark for me. I can’t wait to see Chantilly. And I love the name!

  2. Shalimar

    It is about time. I have the concealer duo and I barely use it. It is way too light on me(the toffee and praline shade is the darkest one) and it looks so obvious that I am wearing concealer. I welcome this concealer with open arms.

  3. Thank heavens! I’ve been waiting for NARS to expand their concealer color range.

  4. artemis

    why there is never a pale olive or at least yellow shade? :))

  5. Chelle

    I like the idea of a duo concealer. I’m probably in between Caramel and Amande so that was nice to see I could get both!

      I am a NARS artist and I will say they say they are a relaunch but the texture is so much creamier, perhaps the seal and tube doesn’t let as much air but they feel very diff to all of us! In a great way though!!

    These look great.
    Sorry for leaving this question on an unrelated post … – Christine – did you ever review the Hourglass Film Noir Mascara?
    I am sure I saw you use it in some looks, but I never saw the review, and can’t find it by searching. Sorry if I’m going nuts!!

    I love how loads of brands use food names for skin tones. Makes Chantilly and Caramel sound so…tasty! I need to stop picking shades based on name and pick on colour, haha >.<

    I can already tell that none of those will be pale enough for me… even taking into account the fact that the screen cannot accurately depict the shades. I’m a super, super pale but pinkish tone (paler and pinker that MAC face and body N1). Pale yellows look like – I don’t know, dirt? Or the like – on my skin. ‘Yellowish’ seems the route for most brands, though, when going pale. Disappointing!

    • Marie

      The picture is definitely misleading.

      I’m NW7, and the shade Vanilla is a bit too dark for me (and looks lighter and pinker in reality than what you can see on this picture!). So I think Chantilly is a good color for very pale women.
      You’ll need to see it in store for sure, but since they claim the new colors have been targeted to match the founfation shades, I expect Chantilly to be close to their Siberia foundation shade (and it is very light).

      • amanda

        chantilly will definitely match you.. its like.. as white as this text box.. i used it.. and very rarely is something too light for me.. i can run nc10 in winter.. and it was light.

  9. Awesome! Guess I’ll be heading down to the NARS boutique on the 1st…I hope they launch them there as well.

  10. Carrie

    Ohhhhh, either Chantilly or Vanilla could be perfect for me. I’d need to actually see them though. They look amazing!

  11. Queen Shanine

    Nice, but they still need more colors for women of color. I’m not sure if this would work for me.

  12. M

    Hopefully this is a step toward expanding their foundation shades as well, it’s nice to be included.

  13. ericajane

    how is the lightest shade that dark?!

  14. PoetrysTruth

    Will head to the mall next month and take a peek at these…

  15. Inès

    My comment is going to be a little bit off subject, but I need a piece of advice from you : I’m Nw20, which Colour(s) of cocealer should I pick up ? I think honey might be good for me but I’m not sure at all !

  16. Andrea D

    I really hope NARS makes a duo with Café & Cacao, because I’ll be buying both concealers anyway!

  17. Pawsha

    Now if they can just get some decent customer service. They only have one person for CS. Ridiculous!

  18. Michele

    I use Nars foundation in Syracuse (usually Tahoe but my tan is fading) and just purchased the concealer in Caramel. I am impressed with the coverage ! I skipped the foundation today and just used the concealer to correct some discolorations. I patted it in with my finger and the blemishes disappeared!!
