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.

Won't be buying again
Kim from San Diego, CA
Personally I like my concealer to be more thick and creamy. This felt very light and was not full coverage. I have a lot of freckles and it barely covers them. My normal routine is concealer before applying powder foundation.
I would definitely buy this product again
None from Maryland
Think it is great!
Not worth the hype in my opinion
LP from Michigan
I had high hopes for this but I don't know who this would be good for but it's definitely not for dry skin folks. I thought since it was creamy it would be perfect and not cake but it barely blends once you put it on your face and it creases under the eye even after baking.
I would buy this product again and again
Christina from Lansdale, PA
Holy grail! Worth the hype!!! I wasn't sure so I opted for the mini before splurging on the full size. I loved the mini and am waiting until I'm out then will definitely repurchase the full size. Best concealer
I would not buy this again
LRD from Colorado
I returned it. I felt like this product did not provide good coverage.
Holy Grail 💯

This been a cult favorite of mine for YEARS!
Best I've Ever Tried
Jess the pug master from Salt Lake City, UT
I have tried about 50 different concealers, and I always come back to this one. There are plenty of shades, so I can match my skin tone in summer and winter. It sticks to blemishes and doesn't rub off when blending/baking. I have also never found a concealer that blends as naturally as this. It's fairly pricey, given the small container, but it's pretty magical stuff.
GREAT!! Maybelline fit me concealer works the same
Jos from Nashville Tennessee
I love this product, but The maybelline fit me concealer is literally exactly the same as this one but way cheaper.
Wrong shade was recommended
Chris from Texas
I think if the shade on outside showed correctly the shade that would be applied I could have gotten a closer match for what I needed.
Deborah from Texas
Unfortunately didn't cover dark spots at all like less than none. Did help with under eyes to have a smoother tone but will not purchase again. Would return but lost receipt
Coverage not that great.
Chris from Texas
My under eye dark circles were still visible.
This is an amazing concealer. Love it!
DB from NJ
I use this as an under eye concealer and also to even out small sections on my face. It is super natural looking.
Still the best!
Tiffsbeautyspot from Maryland
Just as I remember. NARS concealer is everything. There are so many great concealers now. My recent favorites include Benefit Boiing, Colourpop's Pretty Fresh, and Too faces' Born this way. But, this one still has it all and does it all. My #1! Lightweight, full coverage perfection. 👌🏻
One of my favorites
Anna from Fort Lauderdale
This product covers my under eye bags so well! It's buildable and feels very light weight on the skin. I use this product almost every time I put on makeup.
I'm in love with this concealer
Dee from Southern Cali
I purchased Amande. I absolutely LOVE this concealer! It's creamy, smooth, easy to use and blends right in to my skin for a perfect match. I'm hooked!!!❤️
J from NY
i have struggled with cystic acne and was left to deal with the scarring that came with it, however with this product, provides beautiful coverage making my skin look so healthy and smooth , natural finish as well and easy to blend out !
GB from AK
I mostly used it for my under eye area, and it covers without creasing or getting dry. I normally don't use liquid concealer for spots because it moves too much, but this ones works well and stays in place while also covering the redness.
Small bottle. Not a lot of product
starr from West Palm Beach, FL
I like it, but don't love it
Best concealer ever!
Sushi from Texas
This is the best concealer I've ever used! It's great at covering up anything from acne scars to new blemishes and works wonders for making your skin look clear and glowy! Absolutely love it and will continue to buy in the future!
Trip from Ohio
This is the best concealer as far as everyday use goes . Flat out
Not for me.
L. Mahogany from Georgia
Ok, so with the pandemic going on I could not get in the store to try this on, and my regular concealer was not available for like the last two weeks and I needed something. So after days and an hour sitting in the parking lot of ulta I went for this one. Mind you the sales staff was no help all they wanted to do was pick up orders and no one was there but me. Anyways, this concealer does not give the coverage I need, its not thick. I need more coverage due to my problem area, and I like to shape my eyebrows with concealer and this does not even come close to what i was using which was much cheaper also.
Good if you have younger skin.
Mel from Michigan
It's crazy how your skin can change in a few years. I remember being around 17/18 and I would LOVE this concealer. I would save up my money and always buy these. However, I'm 21 now going to be 22 in a week and this just doesn't work for me like it used to. I noticed I have a few more creases and fine lines around my under eyes and this concealer just dries my under eyes out and settles in the creases and fine lines. It's patchy on my skin now (even though I'm oily). I'm going back to using Shape Tape for my under eyes and I'm going to just use the NARS to spot conceal.
