NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. 

NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer is one of my favorite products. I think it launched last year around this time, and I am on my second tube already. It is just one of those holy grail products that covers my skin and makes it look radiant - just as intended. Well, NARS has a new product that goes right along with it, the Radiant Creamy Concealer. I bet I'll be on my second or maybe even third tube of this one next year at this time too.


NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

This concealer is not just for undereye circles, it is designed to be used anywhere you need a little cover up or evening out too. It is very easy to blend and it's buildable to get custom coverage. Just a dab of the sponge-tipped wand under my eyes and a little blending is all I need for my dark circles. On age spots, I dab and blend and dab and blend, until get the exact coverage I need there.

My favorite thing about this concealer is that it is - like the name implies - very creamy. This means it never cakes or creases or settles into my lines and wrinkles around my eyes.

Another way that I like to use the Radiant Creamy Concealer is to apply it on the tops of my cheekbones as a creamy, no shimmer highlighter. The color that I am using is Vanilla, which is just a tad lighter than my foundation, with a little pink undertone to it. It just makes my cheeks look radiant and pop.

Sounds like the concealer I have been dreaming about. I use NARS for all my face makeup and I use the stick concealer now. I am running out to get this one this weekend. Hope it's at Sephora already!
I have a hard time with figuring out what shade is right for me because they make so many that I think I should wear. I guess I'll have to swatch a few myself. I always like my concealer to be a bit lighter too.
Excellent review, Teri! The NARS TM is one of my all-time favorite products! Your description of this concealer makes me really want to try it-- it sounds lovely!!
Would love to try this under my eyes. Concealer always settles into my fine lines there!
I just got this in vanilla as well and I'm really loving it!
I am Marcia and I have a concealer problem. It includes buying this ASAP. I'm just not sure of the shade since I'm so fair. I might have to shop in person. YIKES.

It's online in Sephora and I am betting it's in store now too! You will love your purchase.

If you are unsure at all, do check them out in person. NARS does do a great job with descriptions though and at least it can help you start somewhere.

Isn't Radiant Tinted Moisturizer great? You will love this concealer. I don't often get excited about concealer, but when it is as good as this one...
Krystle -

This one does not settle into lines at all. You'll love it!
Olivia -

This is so great to hear! I was worried Vanilla be be "too" light but it is just right.
Marcia -

You so do not have a problem; concealer is a great thing. And it really is so hard to love one, especially one as much as this. From seeing your photos, I would say that you are safe with Vanilla. It is a very fair shade.
Vanila will look great and that's more neutral in white skin and great if you have brown color face
Very nice video and NARS cosmetics is so concentrated for me…a little goes a really long way.
I ordered it in Ginger and the shade description was spot on. It is great for my very golden medium skin tone. It blends in and covers my dark circles. The coverage last all day too! They have a long time user in me already but this will obviously be another product that is for me forever.
