Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer is no doubt one of the best concealers out there and in my known-circle, there is no-one who has not tried this concealer, I mean it is that good. The good news is that the cult-favourite concealer is available in a mini version called Mini Radiant Creamy Concealer – a version perfect to carry with you and affordable enough if you are new to it.
Nars radiant creamy concealer in the mini size is perfect for touch-ups on the go. The formula is creamy, buildable, blendable, hydrating, and the finish is naturally radiant. The shades range from light to darkest and available in 30 shades. The concealer has been loved by makeup artists, beauty editors, and makeup lovers equally for its ability to correct, highlight, and contour. Another amazing thing about it is the staying power of it, it keeps the area natural and flawless for all day long.
For the amount of work it does, Radiant Creamy Concealer is an all-purpose product – works as a concealer, brightener, corrector, and even highlighter – one product that does it all to make you look awake and alive. The formula is enriched with hydrating, multi-action skincare benefits and light diffusing technology which instantly obscures imperfections and diminishes fine lines and signs of fatigue with a luxurious texture and luminous finish. It is not the first time I have tried this concealer but it was one of the first concealers I bought almost a decade ago and I remember I fell in love with it instantly.

It does not set into the fine lines or problem areas but just blends in making the skin look luminous and healthy, nothing like a mask. It provides sheer to medium buildable coverage. There is no fragrance and does not cause me any irritation or congestion on the skin. I usually do not feel the need to set the concealer but it works pretty well both ways – with or without setting it with a powder. I use it under the eyes to brighten the area and then on the sides of my nose where it is a bit dark during this time of the year due to over oil secretion. Using this concealer, I never feel I have anything on, it is very lightweight and blends into the skin effortlessly.
I have used this formula and concealer for years and can definitely recommend you guys to check it out if you haven’t yet and for all the fans of this concealer, yay to the mini version.
