NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Ginger (Medium 2) Review and Swatches

Some products are so good, they need no introduction and I use this concealer every single day but never did a full review on it because I felt that everyone already owns one. Its the world famous, everyone's favorite concealer, the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (C$37 for 6ml). It is the best formula for covering dark circles and other blemishes on the face. I mostly use this on my under eye area to brighten up my eyes and it always looks great. I never get a powdery, flaky look that happens with some other concealers. It smooths out the undereye area and adds enough brightness to make me look well rested. Its a medium to full coverage formula that looks very natural on skin.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Ginger (Medium 2) Review and Swatches

The formula on these concealers is what sets them apart from the rest. There are many concealers that offer a fuller coverage, more pigment but most of them look powdery, unnatural and though, it may look great on camera, they are not wearable or blend-able for  daily use.
That is the thing I absolutely love about these concealers - the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer  are easy to blend and can be used everyday without spending too much time blending or 'baking'. Also, I never get the drag queen look with these. The formula is creamy, non drying and blurs out the lines under the eye. This helps make complexion look even, without making the undereye look ashy. It can be easily applied with finger tips or sponge, but with a concealer brush, I feel that I need more product to see any difference. I  always use my fingers to press it in and gently blend it out. Sometimes, I would use my foundation brush, if I am in a rush. This concealer never disappoints no matter how you apply and it lasts all day with a little help from a setting powder. It is quite resistant to humidity and I often felt that its considerably water resistant. I love this concealer and I can't imagine living without it.
Ginger is described as having a golden undertone for medium complexion and even though my face is far from golden undertones, this still works, because it color corrects my dark circles and adds luminosity in the eye area. I would have picked the shade Biscuit if I was solely applying it for blemishes and acne scars, but I leave that to my foundation and let those imperfections peek through. I do not like completely masking blemishes because it doesn't feel true to me - if that makes sense? I like to embrace all my imperfections and hide them just enough to look polished, fresh and well rested. And if an acne scar is really bothering me, I would do a second layer of concealer on it to fully conceal it but I rarely do that - may be when my in laws are visiting... :D
The best part is that  NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer comes in over 20 shades, so always get color matched for this because you can find the perfect shade for your skintone! Its a beautiful product and a must have for so many because its easy to use, it delivers and it always makes me look fresher and well rested.

Hope you are already a fan of this and if not, you must try it out.
