    Comments about NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer:

    I don't like to wear foundation or concealer in general, but I like to use this to cover up my pores and blemishes. It doesn't look or feel drying, heavy, or uncomfortable. I have warm, medium skin tone and I use the shade ginger. I also have oily combo skin and it makes my skin look flawless every time!

      Comments about NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer:

      I don't know what it is about this concealer but I have 2 different shades, one for brightenign and one for spot concealing. I love it! Don't be afraid of the "soft matte", it has a kind of satin matte finish in my opinion. I find the tarte shape tape too drying and too full coverage for everyday, while this is full coverage in my opinion it is easier to blend out to be more everyday. I live in a humid climate and I don't have issues with it staying on.

        Comments about NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer:

        This is the best concealer! It sits beautifully on all different kinds of skin (oily, dry, etc), I can use it on my under eyes or on blemishes and it looks great either way. Doesn't crease or get weird under my eyes, and it's stays looking great all day!

        Comments about NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer:

        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.

          Goodbye shape tape!

          from Colorado

          Comments about NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer:

          After using tarte shape tape concealer religiously after it's release, I tried this for under eye concealer and I will never go back! It's light weight- feels like nothing is on and is the closest thing to "creaseless" I've ever used. It's also velvety soft, buildable coverage, and a flawless natural finish. In love.

          Comments about NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer:

          This concealer is so gorgeous. I use it under my eyes, to conceal imperfections, clean up the brows, and even prime to my eyes for shadow. It doesn't crease, but also isn't too dry. The perfect pot concealer formula. Beautiful.

          • 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.

              A:

              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.
