Happy Saturday lovelies!
Hope you’ve got some exciting things planned. Currently I will be having a quiet day and then settling in to watch the Wales v New Zealand rugby match at 5.30pm as it’s a big one for me family seeing as some of them now live over in NZ! That and it’s always a tense game regardless!
M has frequently told me how flipping amazing the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer is, but my bank balance just wouldn’t stretch to it knowing I had a few Collection ones in the make up bag that needed using first. Needless to say when they were on their last dregs I caved and snapped this up without a second thought. Welcome to my make up bag NARS!
I chose the colour Vanilla as M uses the same. Most people seem to think i have much darker skin than I do on account of my near black hair colour but I really am quite pale (my mum gets annoyed when I wear dark lipsticks as it ‘makes me look ill’ – thanks mum, your genes remember!)
This colour was absolutely perfect for me and i haven’t looked back. The rubber packaging looks really good though alas gets ridiculously dirty 5 seconds after opening.
I’ve been using this mostly under my eyes as it’s wonderful at covering those pesky bags that never seem to go away. I think my skin is so pale that it will always be an issue for me!
The concealer is thick and creamy and blends in really easily so I’ve definitely been won over by the consistency and pigmentation.
The wand is also really easy to use and holds a decent amount of product without caking it on.
I have also used it to cover up spots on the odd occasion but I tend to use other products for that and save this one for the big job of concealing my undereye area. I use the wand to apply it to my face and then blend it in using an expert face brush from Real Techniques.
Here’s a few snaps:
These two were without flash and show how the colour blends right in and covers up my bags really well. I’ve got foundation on as well as this is how I wear my make up every day so just need to set with powder to keep it set for the day.
The photo below shows with flash and you can see where my bags are but they are still pretty well camouflaged in my opinion!
I think I could have added an additional layer if I had wanted too and maybe it would be blanked out completely but for every day use this is perfect for me.
I’ve had no issues whatsoever and can only rave about the results from using this; it’s a 10/10 from me and a 100% recommendation. Totally worthy of the hype and other rave reviews that I’ve seen!
