The NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer has achieved an almost cult status since its release a couple of years ago. I'm a huge fan of NARS in general, so it was no mean feat for me to hold off trying it until I reached the end of my beloved Benefit Erase Paste.
While the coverage of this is as good as promised I can't help but find it a little too heavy for my skin. It's particularly noticeable around the nose area where it clings to any minor dry patches it can find and cakes to accentuate their appearance. Although I've found my perfect match in the shade 'Vanilla', one of the winning factors of the Benefit Erase Paste for me was its peachy undertones that helped to correct the purple shadows lurking under my eyes; something that the NARS concealer doesn't offer. It does help to cover imperfections and generally lasts pretty well, however for those of us whose skin sits on the drier end of the spectrum it probably isn't one that I'd recommend. I love the Benefit concealers (both Erase Paste and Fake Up are wicked and super hydrating), as well as the Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer that lasts just as well but has a lighter texture and generally feels fresher on the skin. Even so, I'm determined to make this work for me in some way and have been debating picking up something like the Bobbi Brown Corrector and seeing whether this performs a little better as part of a pair. As always I'll keep you updated!
