    Comments about NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer:

    This is my current favorite. I love my shape tape, but since I got this it's the one I grab for every day. It works well with a full face of makeup or on days where all I want is a little concealer to look more awake and hide some redness on my nose and chin. Its so easy to apply. It blends in easily and covers so well! My skin tends to lean towards dry with fine lines and I've had no issues with this caking up or settling into my lines. Overall I love it!

    Comments about NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer:

    I really like this concealer, it is a nice match to my skin for under eye and spot concealing and looks pretty natural with powder and setting spray. I have dry skin and it is a little drying but not overly matte. I really don't like that it's in a pot and I use a smaller brush to get it out and feels like I waste product trying to get in on the brush, it blends out nice with a sponge.

      Comments about NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer:

      I always buy Shape Tape but they had run out of my color and one of the employees suggested this one, so I gave it a shot. First, I hate pot concealers. They add another step to my routine that I don't want. The fact that I needed to buy a brush for this threw me off. I tried it for a week and for a week, everyone could see my dark circles and when I tried to build it up, it was patchy and drying. I should have gotten the creamy concealer rather than this one.

      Comments about NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer:

      this is my first review ever but it really did brighten my eyes but it comes off so easy even after setting powder and setting spray. I wear glasses and I've never had problems with any other concealer like this even though I wanted to love it.

          • Q:

            I am wanting to try your concealer and I went to a store and was told by associate that Custard would be the shade I need, which I also agreed. However, when I asked which concealer is best for me, RCC or SMC? I was told it did not matter. I disagree and need more help. I have mature, dry skin with dark circles under my eyes, fine lines and wrinkles and recently lost a lot of weight. so firmness is an issue too. Can you tell me which one I should buy, please... Thank You.

              Hi there! While it is true that both of our concealers are wonderful products, skin type and results you want will factor into the best formula for you. Our Radiant Creamy Concealer sounds like it may be the best one for you to try first based on your skin type. This best-selling concealer will instantly blur fine lines and wrinkles and will hide dark circles and signs of fatigue. It is crease proof and long-wearing and will not dry out your skin.

              Our Soft Matte Complete Concealer is a wonderful full coverage formula, that blurs and covers imperfections on the skin. We believe the best results for application come with applying with a concealer brush and blend with your fingertips. The warm from your hands helps to melt the product seamlessly into the skin, leaving you with a beautiful natural looking complexion. This is a great formula to cover dark circles and skin imperfections such as scars, pores and wrinkles. If you are looking for a concealer formula to highlight and contour I would try our Radiant Creamy Concealer. It has the same shade range as Soft Matte but the doe foot applicator and creamy formula makes this easy to apply and blend for a natural looking highlight and contour.

            I recently purchased Too Face Born This Way foundation in shade "Snow" as well as Too Faced Born This Way concealer in shade "Fairest". I love this combination for a natural makeup look, however, I would like a full coverage concealer. I was thinking about trying this Nar's concealer and was wondering what shade would work best for me based on my previous purchase.

              At NARS we believe fingertip application is best. The warm from your hands help to melt the foundation in the skin to create a beautiful, natural looking complexion. Warm a bit in the palm of your hand and apply with your fingers starting in the center of the face and blending out.
