I finally got my hands on the most talked about concealer and I’ve got to say, I’m a little on the fence about it! My ride or die concealer has been the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer ever since I got it and I really did think that shape tape would rival this but after a few uses I’m not entirely convinced…

This is definitely a full coverage concealer, I only needed 1-2 dots under each eye for maximum coverage, a little really does go a long way! The concealer dries to a soft matte finish and seems to stays put!
I found I really had to work with this concealer to avoid it creasing under my eyes! The wand is probably the most annoying thing about this concealer as it is unnecessarily big and can be quite messy. It also holds a lot of product so you need to be sure to wipe off the excess otherwise you’ll apply way to much!
This product has a strong perfume scent, so be careful if you have sensitive skin, especially when applying to the under eye area. I also found that this concealer oxidises quite a lot, it’s at least 2 shades darker after around 5 minutes, which means Fair Neutral (one of the lightest shades) can just about be used on my very fair skin tone to highlight the under eye area.
You can see just how much darker the concealer is compared to when it is first applied.
I didn’t find this to be extremely hydrating and I haven’t fully tested the longevity as I’ve only worn it for a few hours at a time. I’m really hoping that this concealer will grow on me but so far I’m just not loving it as much as I want to.

Overall I’m not that impressed with this concealer! What are your thoughts on this concealer? Is it worth the hype?
