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.
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.

I have oily/acne-prone skin. I initially bought the radiant, but I had difficulty getting it to blend smoothly into my skin. I switched to this and it has been a lifesaver. I usually use this under my eyes (on top of the elf under eye brightner/primer). I just use a finger to pat a very small amount of product in, and it stays beautifully all day. I have not used it a ton on blemishes (since I mainly use patches), but I haven't noticed any issues when I do.

I really like this concealer. I've found that it's best if you use your fingers to apply and blend. Using a concealer brush didn't have the same results. I have rosacea on my nose and cheeks. I am able to build up the coverage to cover it.
Elle from Texas
The BEST concealer i have ever tried. The only concealer that wont crease under my eyes! Never stop making this please! It is my favorite makeup product EVER!!!
Charlize from Phoenix
Okay so i have tried so many concealers to cover my super dark under eyes and none of them did the job like this concealer does!!! This is seriously the best concealer ive ever used. It doesnt crease if you set it with pressed translucent powder!!
Kelly from RI
I love this concealer! I've tried more brands over the years than I can count and this is the obvious winner! Great coverage without being thick and cakey and does not settle into the under eye.

I've been trying to find an u Der eye concealer for bags and wrinkles that covers but doesn't look dry or accentuate fine lines/wrinkles and this is it! A ton of shades to choose from, creamy, and non-drying. I just use my finger to dab it on, no brush needed.
Lindsey from Tulsa
this concealer covers my acne like no other, i love it. it blends well, it lasts forever, even when im sweating like crazy. however, as someone who has acne, this broke my face out even more that it already does. i wanted to love this concealer :((
Joslyn from Saint Louis
I've been using this product for years and it's consistent. Best to use for spot concealing. It matches perfectly with my skin.
Laurel from Pennsylvania
This is my holy grail concealer. Its such a thick and pigmented formula but it doesn't feel heavy on the skin. The coverage is amazing too! It's relatively buildable too. My only con is that it breaks apart if you use certain products underneath it. But thats not a make or break for me because I just switch out products based on what I want to do.
Lynne from Sarasota, FL
Best concealer I have ever found.
Bobbi from Chicago
I'm particular about my eye concealer with my favorite being the IT concealer, but always open to new products. I love NARS products and was excited to try the concealer in a pot and was totally impressed. I don't love the other tube concealers with a wand including the creamy NARS.
I'll definitely buy this product again.
Jaz Ny from Ohio
It matched my skin tone completely & it's hard to find colors to match my face due to acne scars and hyperpigmentation. This covered my spots completely and makes my makeup look good! I would def be buying again to cover my dark spots on my face.. even looks good with a tinted loose setting powder over it
Risse from Baltimore MD
I love NARS. This concealer is the perfect shade and consistency to help me with my cut crease looks and my looks where I need my shadow to POP!
Roberta from Chicago
I've preferred creamy concealers and have been disappointed in the high end products with applicators, even the NARS version. But this is far superior and I will definitely buy it again.
Gina from Philadelphia, PA
I don't like makeup at all. It magnifies the appearance of all the skin imperfections unless you cake it on. I am over the moon with this product. I use a very light tinted moisturizer all over my face and apply this product under the eye where the dark circles or where they used to be. This product is Magic!!!!!
I am new to the makeup scene. I am 56 yrs old and need the dark circles coverd. This product is PERFECTION!!!
Noel from Cincinnati
It goes on so smoothly and is effortless to put on. The colors are a bit different than what it shows online. I also used the shade match tool which recommended the wrong color. I use Lancome foundation. I'm shade 130N. I got this right before they switched the shades. I would now be 115. I bought what they recommended which was madeleine. It was a few shades darker than my foundation. Vanilla works perfect for me.
kayla from Long Beach, California
the shade i wanted wasnt available (custard), online, so i went in-store and they had it in stock, weirdly. but, this concealer is very creamy, lasts pretty long, just a bit expensive for my first concealer.
Cat from Orlando
I love this concealer. I'm so glad they're going to be carrying it at Ulta from now on.
I'm not a fan of wearing a full face of makeup, and I've tried a bunch of 'holy grail' 'my skin but better!' type products, but I'm just always super aware of any type of foundation. It honestly might be a psychosomatic thing. But I use a tiny amount of this and brush it across my face and it does exactly what I've always wanted my skin tints to do. It really is my skin but better, and I never feel it sitting on my face.
That being said, it's not good for under your eyes, so if that's your only goal, this is not for you. Other than that, love absolutely everything about this.

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.
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.
A from fl
i love this product please restock chantilly !!
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.
Linda from Boston
Best concealer I ever used I'm so sad they took my shade away
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.
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.
