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.

I decided to buy this concealer because it was super popular and everyone loves it. THIS PRODUCT CREASES SOOO MUCH! it makes my under eyes look so old. I don't even have mature skin. It so hard to blend it in unlike other concealers I have tried in the past. I have tried to make it work but just isn't for me.
Mariela from Fontana, CA
This product went one lightly and it gave me so much coverage.
It also gave me a great natural glow.
Asdf from MI
Has been a staple in my routine for about 15 years. I wish the concealer stick would come back as well.
I wanted to love it :(
Tori from Texas
I bought this concealer because of how popular it was but unfortunately I can't make it work. I have small bumps underneath my eyes and it didn't cover them at all. If anything it exaggerated the bumps :/ second I bought the fairest shade they have and it goes on with a perfect match but ends up oxidizing awhile later.
Too dry and hard to blend with an beauty blender
Makeupjunkie from Newyork
I wanted to buy this for so long. But when I finally got it I was disappointed. I wish I can return it because this product is too dry and hard to work with. Even after putting a good moisturizer and face mist. It gets cakey around my under eye.
Cyncyn from Orlando, FL
Finally found a concealer that doesn't show over the powder foundation. It also doesn't clump or make my eyes look like I'm 800 years old. Definitely worth the price to me.
Not radiant at all
Debbie from Riverside
Used to really love this so I repurchased and I'm not sure if they changed the formula but it's really dry now and barely any product comes off the wand you have to re-dip a lot for an even application
BEST CONCEALER EVER!!!!!!
ASHTON from Alabama
BEST STUFF EVER! COVERS EVERYTHING WITHOUT LOOKING HEAVY. I HAVE OILY SKIN AND IT IS AMAZING
I love this
Sophia h from Dana Point, Ca
this product was exactly what I was looking for. It has good coverage while not making my skin look oily or dry.
Hailey from Florida
If you're looking for a true medium coverage concealer that is hydrating I love this concealer! It will not build to a full coverage but for an everyday concealer this one is my favorite!
Sat the nirmal from Harrisburg
This is way too thick and even the smallest amount will is too much
All over breakouts
Cpax90 from Pennsylvania
Not for sensitive skin this caused me to breakout EVERYWHERE!
My favorite concealer
Lex from Beckley, WV
I don't wear makeup very often, if I do I always do a more natural look. This concealer is perfect for a natural finish and you can layer it without it looking cakey. It applies very smoothly and blends easily. I've tried a lot of different brands when it comes to concealer, I've tried all the kinds everyone raved about and they never worked for me, this has always worked for me the best.
Was really hopeful
Sam from NJ
I was so excited to try this out because most people rave about the product. I was mostly disappointed. I have extremely dry under eyes so I was looking for something that wouldn't cake. Even though I prepped my skin with my eye cream, moisturizer and primer, the concealer immediately settled into any lines under my eyes. I used the tiniest bit but it still looked patchy and worse than if I hadn't put any concealer on at all.
NOT good for under eye if pushing 50
jen from Hoffman Estates, IL
Ulta employee recommended this for my under eye area -- I am almost 50, and I was looking for something moisturizing that would not highlight the lines and wrinkles. While this product would be nice for younger people but it is NOT good for me.
I wasn't impressed

It didn't have great coverage for me
Not great for me
Joey from KY
I've tried a lot of concealers, and this is one of the worst ones for me. There isn't much product and I have to constantly dip into it. It runs out fast!!!
The best concealer!
DonnaNif from The Villages, FL
Love this concealer especially for under eye circles
The BEST concealer!
Lin from Bloomington IL
Love love love this concealer. It covers beautifully and isn't cakey, brightens around my eyes, and lasts a long time because a little bit goes a long way! My absolute favorite.
Nice but not for mature skin!
TH from Boston, MA
I was looking for a good under eye concealer and read lots of positive reviews of this. I use other NARS products and love them, but unfortunately this one isn't for me. I found it to be drying and it settled in the fine lines...not a good look. I will be returning.
alexis from Colorado
Love this concealer. As I get older my under eye is getting more fine lines and gets dryer than my face. Most full coverage concealer cakes up and makes my under eye more dry and my fine lines stand out more. This one is very creamy and still gives good coverage.
Never fails me
Dade from DFW
I have tried just about every concealer and I keep coming back to this beauty staple. It doesn't dry my skin (I'm normal to dry). Never breaks me out, looks radiant EVERYTIME!!! It's great if you set out don't set. I've been getting this for over 6yrs and nothing comes close. There are a few drugstore brands that can come close to coverage but not blendability, no creasing or lines and color match is seamless. I have given up on others and sticking with this one because why bother if it's✅. I wear Mac NC45 and in Nars "Amande". It is great alone or with foundation. NO COMPLAINTS. If I had to choose 1 makeup item—this would be my choice.
Holy Grail Concealet
Sabrina from California
This product is amazing and I have been using it for years. Nothing else compares to this brand and concealer. I started using the matte version of this concealer since I tend to use a lot more, and rub our faster with this one than that one, but other than that it is the perfect shade and coverage. Also does not break me out and it is just overall perfect!
Sienna from .
For the price point it, it's not worth it. I didn't like the texture and unfortunately it wore off in maybe 4-5 hours.
Great concealer, not too drying!
Abstergail from Tennessee
Love this concealer, it's better than Tarte Shapetape in my opinion. It's not too thick or drying but still has great coverage!
