I have been using NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer and All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation for a year now, so I think I’m pretty well prepared to give my impressions on them…
If you’re in a rush, let me just tell you that these are the best foundation and concealer I have ever used. I’ve tried a LOT, and apart from a drugstore one I used when I was in uni, this is the only one I’ve ever re-purchased. In fact after I repurchased the drugstore one they’d changed the formula and it was rubbish, which is probably why I can’t remember the brand 😉
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (in shade Vanilla): I’ve read a lot of posts where people claim to have found a dupe for this – and it always becomes clear during the course of the blog post that no, they haven’t. They may have found a pretty good drugstore concealer, but a dupe for this it certainly is not. Radiant Creamy Concealer is basically the best concealer in the world if you ask me – the formula sinks into nasty blemishes like nothing I’ve ever used, and it has the most fantastic wear. Amazingly, while it has a brightening effect under my eyes, it has a neutralising effect on spots. It’s £22, and I think it’s a total no-brainer that it’s worth it, when it’s a colour corrector, blemish concealer AND under eye brightener all in one.
NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation (in shade Mont Blanc): Well first of all, this product does exactly what its ridiculously long name promises to do. It is weightless and exceptionally comfortable. It leaves your skin looking wonderfully healthy. And it lasts ALL DAY. I love the way that two pumps is enough to cover my face, the ease with which it blends out, the fact that it lasts me 6 months and the fact that the colour matches my skin perfectly. I have had the best skin of my life whilst using this foundation and I do believe it had a part to play. It’s £32, but it is SO much better than every foundation I’ve ever used, including one that cost me £50!
If you want to see some how they look on, here are a few pictures of my face! I was wearing both products in all these photos.
