Most Helpful Positive Review My New Favorite Pot Concealer
Concealers are difficult to get right, especially matte ones, since the finish can tend to exaggerate problems with the texture and look cakey when set with powder. But NARS definitely delivers with this gorgeous pot concealer. It applies smoothly and evenly with a concealer brush, melts into the skin (and your foundation) when pressed and warmed with your fingers but maintains its coverage, layers well with color-correcting creams (if desired), and lasts all day without significant creasing or settling into fine lines. More impressively, it covers hyperpigmentation or acne blemishes with less product than most liquid or mousse concealers and without sheering out. And it's easy to work with for graphic eye looks as well (see image below), such as cut lid or cut crease.
But be clear, this is a truly matte finish product. If you prefer more dewy or illuminated finishes under the eye, this probably isn't the product for you. I'll also say that the color selection isn't necessarily intuitive next to their foundation selection. I'm very fair and cool-toned, and I wear the shade Mont Blanc in both the NARS All Day Luminous Foundation and the Sheer Glow Foundation, and either Finland or Terre Neuve in the Radiant Tinted Moisturizer, but I'm shade Vanilla (not Chantilly) in the concealer. Matching the undertone is probably more important than the depth of the shade.
All in all, if you're looking for a matte concealer, this is an excellent option.
Most Helpful Critical Review Wanted to like it.
Didn't have the best coverage but I guess Im very used to my tarte shape tape (which I love and have repurchased multiple times)
I find that with my combination skin this concealer doesn't ever really set, even with a powder on top. It "melts" off throughout the day and looks cakey on my skin. I use it for just my under eyes now just to use it up but would not purchase again.

This product is amazing for covering dark circles.
A beautiful, everyday touch
Lola from New York
I first ran into this product whilst looking for its more popular cousin, Radiant Creamy. This turned out to be a pleasant surprise:
1. Buildable to a very full coverage,
2. A very natural finish on the skin,
3. Wide variety of shades.
I use it in the inner corner of my eyes, and on the outside to eradicate all darkness/discoloration. A little bit goes a long way. Best applied if you warm up the product with your fingers, and then apply it to the skin. Also good with a beauty blender.
Has great coverage but...
Jamilet from Las Vegas, NV
Has amazing coverage and is easy to work with but I have a very prominent line under both eyes so this creases a lot under there. Now that could just be how my eyes just look but wanted to point it out because while I have accepted as part of my face, maybe others don't.
i miss my shade!!

BS from Virginia
I've never used it as a concealer, but as an eyeshadow primer it's AMAZING!! Worked a 12 hour shift with my makeup down and eyeshadow didn't budge or fade all night.
Please bring back my shade custard please

Best concealer I ever used I'm so sad they took my shade away
Great coverage for my stubborn blemishes (Cacao)
Monique420 from Alabama
I use this to color correct and conceal my acne blemishes. I'm okay with the price being that a little goes a long way. I plan on getting another shade that's more my shade to wear in place of foundation as well.

Using for years and wouldn't use anything else
Kaci from New York, New York
I have hormonal cystic acne and this is the only concealer that makes my skin look flawless. So worth it! I always come back to the concealer.
Kimmy from Utah
This is my favorite concealer ever! I even used it on my wedding day as full foundation because my other foundation got lost and it looked flawless! So in love! Just wish my shade would come back in stock online!!! Vanilla 2 please!
to drying and is creases really bad
Nia from Bonita Springs
this concealer makes me look old, it looks very dry underneath my eyes even when i moisturize with my kiehls eye cream, and it creases so bad. also the color selection is terrible, i neaded something lighter.
The most beautiful concealer!
Krad from California
I feel like this concealer doesn't get the attention it deserves! It's a gel like consistency with a natural looking dry down. Has full coverage and doesn't settle into my fine lines. You need the tiniest amount to cover. Looks airbrushed. I have a peachy corrective shade and a more yellow shade to match my skin tone. Love it!

Thank goodness for full coverage cream concealer. Even shape tape wasn't doing what I needed it to for my dark circles but this cream is pure magic.
T from Stamford, CT
I like this product a lot, I use a concealer brush and a damp makeup sponge to blend! I prefer this one over the liquid version, however, it does tend to crease. Overall, it's a pretty good product and definitely provides good coverage.
Judi70 from Abington, MA
I bought this item with some reservations and prayed it would do what I wanted. I was very much surprised and happy that it does. It covers up my purple under eye bags and my age spots as well. Great product. And you only have to use a little at a time.
Best ever for breakouts!
Danielle C from Nashville
This concealer is the BEST I've ever used to cover pesky breakouts. I put a tiny bit over my foundation on occasional blemishes and they basically disappear! Redness is gone, blends like a dream, no caking, lasts 12 + hours and makes my skin happy, a little goes a long way so worth every penny. Please please don't ever discontinue. Thank you for making an amazing product. I'm so grateful!

totally in love with the coverage this concealer gives me not only under my eyes but on blemishes too. will repurchase again and again
Great for just concealing

May he say skin and covers those unwanted pimples and redness.
zeekthegeek from California
This is the most skin-like formula I've ever used on a concealer, covers beautifully. I only wish they would expand their shade range to have more undertones
magie from southeast, usa
I love this concealer! I have vanilla and it's good but the creme brulee is perfect. This is first concealer in all the years that I have been wearing makeup that the color is a perfect match. The texture is amazing as well, it is soft and easy to apply, but it's not drying at all. Great for under eyes. It doesn't look like I am wearing makeup, it just makes me younger and more well rested. This and the liquid blush are my favorites from Nars.
Crina B from Burlington, VT
Love this for spot concealing. Beautiful coverage, natural finish, easy to apply with fingers. Wish it weren't so pricy. The search for an affordable dupe continues.
Madi from Oklahoma
This concealer is very nice. A little goes a long way, the coverage is amazing but if you like it packed and stacked it's quite blendable as well. I like it for carving my brows, concealing and highlighting, and it's not half bad as an eyeshadow primer. Highly recommended.
Nars soft matte concealer in Vanilla
Bonnie from Pembroke, Ma
This concealer was recommended to me by Risa does makeup. And boy, was she right! I have very puffy, swollen eye bags with dark circles and most concealers leave my eyes looking dry and crepey. Not this one! This blends easily into my skin to almost a powder consistency. My eyes, look great! No darkness and no crepey skin! I cannot recommend this product enough. If I could I would give it ten stars
Covers your past!
Sharon from Arlington, TX
Amazing coverage without having to be heavy-handed.
Perfect for sculpting brows too!
Love the soft natural finish of this product.
I'm in love
Elva from San Diego
Fell in love with it! One of the best concealers out there and its FULL COVERAGE! Love how it's matte but it doesn't dry you out. Perfect concealer for the winter
