Most Helpful Positive Review Nars vs Urban Decay
I mainly wear my concealer under my eyes and as a spot treatment for blemishes. I've wore Covergirl concealer for ages and wanted to try something different. I picked 2 popular brands to try out because both were so highly rated on Ulta and other websites. I tested both the Urban Decay Naked concealer and the Nars concealer. I even wore Urban Decay on one eye and Nars on the other for several days, just so I could monitor the coverage throughout the day. Same for spot treatments. The first thing I noticed with these higher end, longer lasting concealers was creasing. I've never had that problem before so I had to research a solution. I learned to use a moisturizer/oil first, blot/blend the concealer with my finger and set with powder immediately. So I tested the 2 concealers again. Problem solved on both concealers. Urban Decay is much creamer than Nars so it blended with ease, like a lotion. It didn't last as long with spot treatments though. Eye wise, they were both pretty close but I felt that Nars made my skin look more flawless than Urban Decay. Nars is thicker than Urban Decay but spreads with no drag and doesn't look cakey. I think the thicker formula is why it sticks to blemishes better too. I can go all day at my office job and not touch up any spots, even after working out on lunch! Nars was the winner for me and was WAY better at lasting coverage compared to my old Covergirl concealer. I use the Vanilla shade and I have oily skin.
Most Helpful Critical Review just not good
I've been a makeup artist for around 13 years so i've tried SO many concealers. I love buying concealer, just as much as I love buying mascara because I guess i'm always just waiting for that one amazing product that's gonna be super life changing. This was definitely NOT one of those products. First off, the color range was just not great. I own several NARS foundations, and can easily find my shade in those (alaska in velvet matte skin tint, for example). I'm light-medium with a golden/yellow undertone. The golden tones in this concealer are either too light or too dark. Custard is their light/medium with a yellow undertone..then comes ginger. Custard was way too light, ginger was way too dark. In between those shades, there are other peachy tones like canelle, but if you're truly golden/yellow like me...peachy tones just look like you've rubbed pink eyeshadow all over your face. So that part was disappointing..and I run into this same issue in all of NARS concealers. So, beware of that if you're light and golden like myself. Then there was the issue with the texture. I'm not one of those people who piles on concealer and foundation...I personally feel that it's more modern and pretty and chic to blend concealer strategically so that you appear to just naturally have great skin...and with practice that is possible. And believe me, I don't naturally have great skin I'm just not into the mask-like foundation/concealer look. The goal is for people to look at me and think "wow her skin is so pretty" not "wow look at all that foundation." But the texture of this concealer was SO CAKEY. Even using light layers, and blending..it was just cakey no matter what. It's a drier consistency, and manages to make texture appear where there is not even any natural texture. For the price, this guy just is a dud. There are way better concealers out there with better shade ranges, and more advanced textures.

This concealer never fails, light and breathable, with great coverage. It dries down without ever looking dry.

I keep trying to give it a chance. It looks really cakey and has made my under eye break out even when I cleanse properly. There are better,affordable concealers out there.
Would buy again
Ham from Florida
The concealer is very light weight. It provides medium coverage i would say. The main point is i work on the beach so i need something that will not make my face cakey. This concealer does it wonderfully. I would buy it again.
First time and love it
warqueen from Davie, FL
First time I've bought NARS product. This concealer is great, I love it. It covers my freckles when I want that smooth skin look. I also LOVE how I was able to fit the concealer's color with my skin tone right at the first try.
My all time favorite concealer

It's just perfect
Easy little travel size concealer
Carolyn from Columbus, OH
Great little concealer. Brightens and hides the under eye circles of this mom very well. It doesn't settle into my fine lines, which is great.
Lives up to hype
Tina from Kansas City Missouri
I tried this Brand as I've seen various comments about this being the best concealer. I'm new to using concealer and I tried a number of samples before trying this one. I can say it really is the BEST! I apply over my light foundation to my nose, cheeks and under eyes. It blends seamlessly and the color options allow for you to pick a shade close to yours and still work. I went into Ulta store to have someone help me choose the right color and there were 3 options that blended into my face perfectly. I highly recommend this for all ages, as I am 49.
cass from chicago
Does exactly what it claims to do. I use it without foundation to cover a few dark spots from old mascne, cover occasional redness on cheekbones before highlighter, make my eyes look brighter, or prep for eyeshadow. Worth every penny imo!

Literally the best concealer I've ever used!

Love it! Great coverage, my color. Nothing else more to say.
Maz from New York
Once it's on, it's on lmao. Good for when you want something long lasting, but can make it hard to blend out occasionally. Pretty versatile but I don't think I'd use it for under eyes

Perfect color, I will always buy!

I have tried many concealers and this is the best one. It is a bit pricey but lasts a long time.
Anon from California
Not sure why everyone loves this product. It was okay upon applying, however once it dried down it was ridiculously chalky. It clung to my under eyes, seemed to suck the life out of them. Waste of my money, for sure, I had higher expectations. The hype is not real.
Love this concealer

The only concealer I will ever use. Love it and how easily it blends!
Don't really understand the hype
Jan from CA
I really wanted to like this product because of all the hype but it just didn't work out for me. It's a great concealer but it doesn't blend well with my Estee Lauder double wear foundation shade 3W1.5. I tried custard, cafe con leche, macademia and crema catalana. It's just either to pink, or to dark. I had this problem with their foundation as well. I'm not saying it's bad it's just not great with MY Estee Lauder foundation and I can't give my foundation up because that's my holy grail.
Favorite concealer ever
Jaz from Utah
I've been using this for a year, masks and all it doesn't rub off. Very little creasing. I have normal/dry and sensitive skin which results in having a difficult time finding product that don't bug my skin. This is the only face product I've been able to use and I love it.
Belby from New York
I usually don't like concealer because it's either too heavy and matte or it's too low in coverage and too dewy, but this concealer is the perfect happy medium for me! On a normal day I use a few dots of this on any blemishes that I have and then on my nose, chin, and inner cheeks and blend outwards with my ring finger (the way that François Nars intended for his complexion products to be used,) and then I apply my blush/contour/highlight etc..but if I am feeling extra I set it with the Mac Studio Fix powder foundation and either way it creates a beautiful, flawless base that looks like I'm not even wearing makeup (which is my number one priority) and it lasts about 8-10 hours. It doesn't blur pores, it isn't transfer proof, and it can settle into fine lines under the eyes..but that's NORMAL when you put product on the skin (makeup isn't magic) so I don't mind that at all. I also appreciate that they have a shade that works for people on the albino spectrum like myself. I use Chantilly and it matches my VERY fair, very warm toned skin almost perfectly, which is rare. You can build the coverage up to do a glam look, and you can also sheer it out to do a natural or no makeup look as well, so I love the versatility of this concealer. I have nothing to complain about, and I recommend it to anyone no matter what skin type they have (I am combo/oily with dry patches, and I'm almost 29 for reference.) It's a beautiful product, just like I'd expect from Nars!
Bought the wrong color for my skin but…
Noelle from San Diego, CA
During the pandemic I really didn't wear makeup and interestingly my skin changed during that time. So when I started wearing makeup again, I found that some of my old products just weren't right for me anymore. I needed to change up not concealer and have liked nars products in the past. But you can't really test products in store nowadays so I guessed based on the online description. I guessed wrong. This product matches my skin but I need a lighter concealer for my new under eye pigmentation (yay for getting older!). So I've been using this as an eyeshadow primer and it works great. I apply a thin layer directly to my entire eyelid and follow with a little setting powder on top. It keeps my eyeshadow on point. Not sureI'd buy it specifically as an eyeshadow primer again as there are many products to choose from but glad I can get some use out of it. Also, I could use it as a foundation in a pinch since it dies match my skin tone. But I like lighter coverage and that would use this tiny tube up super fast.
I will buy this product again and again
