I like to sheer this out with a light moisturizer for a more natural look under the eye. I’m usually aiming for a “slept 8 hours” look and this concealer is so pigmented that if I don’t dilute it my look ends of being too “makeup-y” for my comfort zone. It is a beautiful product tho, very blendable. Best of all, it refuses to crease on me! However, I’m not a fan of the packaging. For the price I want to get every last drop and the tube makes that difficult.
I was colour matched to this shade by the SA at Sephora. I’ve tried for about a month to make this shade work but it looks dreadful. It really looks very yellow on me even when blended out on my under-eye area and makes me look sallow or jaundiced. This will probably be the first product I return to Sephora in all my years of shopping there. I’ve since purchased this same concealer in Vanilla and it is a much better match though I still find this product gives a dry and scaly look to my under-eye area, contrary to what you’d expect from something with “radiant” and “creamy” in the name.
I got this after a not very happy experience with Custard (great if I want to look jaundiced or like I’ve got the very last traces of a bruise that has now faded to yellow around my eyes). Vanilla is a much better match and is more brightening for my under-eye area but I still find this doesn’t really live up to its “Radiant, Creamy” name – I do find it leaves my under-eye area looking dry and scaly, even with eye cream underneath. I think this is meant to be close to a full coverage concealer but I find that I do have to build to get good coverage for my dark circles.
I was in dire need of a concealer after my skin decided to flare up when I switched birth control pills. Having never had spotty skin in my teenage or adult life, I haven’t used concealer as an everyday stable product so was pretty clueless to which one would be right for hiding hormonal acne.
I did my usual research online and searched popular brands such as Nars, M.A.C and even budget brands such as Collection 2000 on makeupalley and blogs.
I nearly caved in and brought a £4.19 concealer which had rave reviews online by Collection 2000 but as I couldn’t find it I headed down to my nearest NARS counter.
On arrival the concealer was teamed with NARS Sheer Glow foundation and lightly patted onto my spots to disguise them.I noticed very little product was needed which makes me think although the high price tag this product could last a long time!
The concealer did what it said on the tin and made my spots look invisible! I would recommend going a shade down rather than up in this concealer though for better coverage.
