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 is my go to concealer. It's perfect to use on those no make up days. Just apply a little under your eyes and on any blemishes and buff out.

Do not waste your money
Pam from Texas
This drys instantly so wherever you put it that's where it will be. You can not blend it at all. It is just there. So be very careful to put it everywhere you need it and put foundation over it because there is no blending at all
J from CA
I was really hoping to love this concealer bc it's been raves about for years but I found it to settle into the fine lines around my eyes much worse than other concealers that I reach for (I.e. J.Cat or Creamy Tarte Shape Tape)
my absolute favorite concealer!
zodiac lover from mfhjrjfjv
i have never found a concealer that doesn't crease or leave a cakey look on my face until i tried this concealer. i don't like spending that much on makeup, but i'd rather spend more for a good quality product then buy a bunch of cheap products that won't work. leaves a great natural finish, and made me skin feel soft!
Alex from Sacramento
I love the consistency of this concelear and it blends so good and look so pretty when set with powder but within time this will crease like crazy.
My go-to concealer!
Ellie from Minneapolis, MN
I have been buying this concealer for years, and although the price point is a bit high it's definitely worth it since it will last you a while. I get the shade creme brulee and it's amazing all year around. Not cakey but still has full coverage on both under eyes and blemishes. I have been using a CoverGirl concealer for a while since my budget didn't allow for NARS but I got some extra $ and am treating myself because I simply cannot live any longer having mascne and terrible under eye circles without this concealer, it truly brings me to life in the morning. Treat yo' self and buy it! NARS always has super high-quality products imo.

I purchased 3 different colors. A light one for concealing under my eyes. One my skintone for blemishes and sun spots. Then for me honey is a great color corrector. I have super dark circles. Not the normal YouTube "dark circles" but actual dark ones. As long as these are available I'll buy them. It's my favorite concealer for full face makeup.
Maya from Olympia WA
Works better with a color corrector under the concealer , but over all it does give you a natural coverage .
Loti from Salisbury NC
Love this product goes on smooth and blends in very well.
Sally from New Orleans
I really love this concealer it's my go to for natural makeup. It doesn't look dry. It's buildable coverage which is great. However I do notice that it creases under my eyes but it may just be the powder that I use. I would totally buy again and recommend !!!!
Victoria from Houston
I was looking for an everyday concealer with very low coverage and this was perfect. I wear it everyday and a little goes a long way!
THE BEST from WA
This concealer is so worth the money. I was iffy about paying more than like $10 for a concealer but it's 10/10 worth every penny. It goes on SO SMOOTH and lasts all day. It doesn't sink into my pores and look cakey at all. THE BEST!!!
DOES NOT STAY ON
Avery from Vancouver, WA
I find myself applying this concealer over and over again throughout the day. Goes on nicely, just wish it stayed on:/
Hands down the best
Ace from Dallas
This is the best concealer I've used & I've used a lot! I have dry sensitive skin and I can use this without any other makeup and it always looks natural and smooth. Never irritates my skin and it matches perfectly. If you have trouble finding concealers I suggest at least trying this.
Emmy from Dyersburg, TN
Use for dark circles under my eyes. Coverage is great. Super thick formula.
All time fave

Cindy from Colorado
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

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.
