NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer ($30.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is an award-winning (it’s even taken home several Temptalia Readers’ Choice Awards over the years!), liquid concealer available in 16 shades from an ultra light, neutral-to-yellow toned shade (Chantilly) to a deep dark, neutral-to-cool-toned shade (Dark Coffee).  The formula is described as “lightweight” with “medium to high buildable coverage” that’s “hydrating” and “long-wearing and crease-proof.”

How-to Use NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

FIND YOUR MATCH

We’ve partnered with NARS to showcase Radiant Creamy Concealer, as it’s one of the most searched for concealers in our Foundation Matrix, and it holds an impressive 4.5/5 stars as rated by Temptalia readers. Readers often described the formula as blendable, buildable, natural, and long-wearing. We now have photos and swatches of all 16 shades!

For anyone who prefers peachy undertones for concealing underneath the eyes, your best bets (from light to dark) will be: Creme Brulee, Honey, Biscuit, Chestnut, and Hazelnut. The rest of the shades run either pink or yellow with some of the yellow shades being slightly less or more yellow-based. I typically use Cannelle or Custard underneath my eyes and Cannelle or Macadamia for any spot concealing.  I tend to opt for this formula when I am using a more luminous or dewy foundation or if my under eye area is drier (which is where I do most of my concealing).

The concealer can also be used for highlighting or contouring!  NARS recommends going two shades lighter than your skin tone for highlighting and two shades darker than your skin tone to contour.

The Dupe List: Check Vanity for Dupes

The Dupe List
Limit your search results to show only dupes you own!

We made a slight tweak over on The Dupe List to help manage and find dupes for those who want to avoid purchasing too many of the same shades.  Now, when you want to lookup dupes for a particular shade or formula, you can limit the results to items in your Vanity by clicking the checkbox.  You can also check your Vanity for dupes whenever you’re browsing a product’s dupes, so whether you’ve read a review and are looking at the product’s dupes, you can easily refine down to shades you already own.

The Vanity is a way to keep track of the products your own.  You’ll need to be a registered user to start adding products to your Vanity.  You can view dupes within your Vanity, and you can also view dupes between your Vanity and your Wishlist.   (You can keep track of products you’re wanting by adding them to your Wishlist.)

And hey, while I have you, did you know that you can compare any two palettes to see both official dupes and similar shades between the two of them?  Or that you can compare any two swatches side-by-side we have whenever you want?

P.S. — We are currently working on improvements in the way products (that we don’t have) are added to make that a faster process for readers (this is our next big project!).

Check your vanity for dupes when browsing any product’s dupes!

Hello, it’s Temptalia! Let’s do an AMA! :)


If you’re newer to the blog, let me formally introduce myself: I’m Christine Mielke, and I’m the owner, founder, editor, swatcher, writer, photographer, and pretty much the go-to person for everything except the technical stuff. I started Temptalia in 2006 and have been doing this, officially, full-time since I finished graduate school (2011). If you’ve had a question floating around in your mind about me, blogging, or Temptalia, now’s the time to ask it 🙂

What is an AMA? It stands for Ask Me Anything! I’ve done two of them on /r/makeupaddiction (one in 2014 and one this year).

I’ve been more absent from the comment sections this holiday season (one of the things I’ve had to scale back on in order to focus on holiday reviews), and I thought this might be a fun way to connect with readers during my “down time” today. Back in the day, I used to hold “Ask Temptalia” sessions periodically but have not do so in many years, so I look forward to answering your questions throughout the day!
