NARS has been one of my favorite makeup brands in the past, and I believe they make quality makeup that is long-lasting and pigmented. That said, it has been awhile since I’ve followed their new releases religiously, and I know the Soft Matte Complete Concealer has been around for nearly a year now. At $30, it is pricey, especially for someone like me who doesn’t really use concealer regularly.
Unfortunately, I have fallen in love with this concealer!
Vanilla, Custard, Caramel, Hazelnut
The sample has lasted for several weeks now, so I’ve had ample time to test it out. I typically use concealer for spot concealing redness, freckles that may show up if I’m slacking on sunscreen, or blemishes (which is rare for me). I have normal skin and since this is matte, I didn’t find it drying; however, if you have dry skin, it is worth sampling first.
I rarely wear concealer under the eyes, but for me, this is too heavy for that area. I prefer this formula for the face rather than for concealing and correcting dark circles.
This is soft, it is matte, it is full coverage, and it is very creamy and natural. It simply melts into the skin–I love easy this concealer is to apply! Another thing that I always appreciate about NARS is that their shade matches are spot on with my skin. Custard is a perfect match for my face; I was hoping to get away with vanilla in order to enjoy this little sample more, but it is simply too light.
This concealer comes in 16 shades; the selection can definitely use more colors on the deep side of the color spectrum.
This concealer is a huge win in my book, but I am unsure if I will purchase it at this time. It is also noteworthy that I think this is better than the Radiant Creamy Concealer, which I really enjoyed.
