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 Mini Radiant Creamy Concealer, the new mini version, review and swatches

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.

Nars Mini Radiant Creamy Concealer, the new mini version, review and swatches

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. Nars Mini Radiant Creamy Concealer is available at narscosmetics.ca , Sephora.ca, Nordstrom, Hudson’s Bay, and Shoppersdrugmart.ca

The lipsticks have medium to full coverage and easily buildable. The formula of all the finishes is nice, comfortable, and consistent. The matte is not drying but has a soft, semi-matte lightweight feel to it. The sheer formula has a sheer glossy finish while the satin is creamy and more like a classic lipstick with a subtle sheen. The lasting power of the lipstick is pretty nice.

Nars High Pigment Longwear Eyeliner has launched and you need to check it out for its formula, texture, and shades. Nars can never go wrong when it comes to the eye makeup, be it the eyeshadows or the blushes which double as eyeshadows too. Same for this newly launched eyeliner I have been using non-stop.

Nars Fall 2019 Edit - High Pigment Longwear Eyeliner

Nars High-Pigment Longwear Eyeliner, available in 16 different bold shades, is perfect for creating a precise line or to tight line, to smudge for a smoky effect, and also for applying on the waterline. The formula is very smooth, gel-like, easy to blend while depositing rich colour that sets as it was applied. The creamy texture makes the application a breeze and does not irritates even my sensitive eyes – on the eyelids, over and under the lower lashline, on the waterline.

Nars Fall 2019 Edit - High Pigment Longwear Eyeliner

Below are the shades available for Nars High-Pigment Longwear Eyeliner:

Via Veneto – Black

Gran Via – Intense Black

Night Porter – Black with Pearl

Last Frontier – Dark Chocolate Brown

Mambo – Chocolate Brown

Mulholland Drive – Metallic Brown

Park Avenue – Deep Navy

Haight Ashbury – Slate Grey

Ocean Drive – Bright Cobalt

Broadway – Burnt Metallic

Grafton Street – Deep Green

Rue Bonaparte – Nude

Santa Monica Boulevard – White

The Strip – Metallic Silver

Sunset Boulevard – Metallic Gold

Rodeo Drive – Metallic Copper

Nars Fall 2019 Edit - High Pigment Longwear Eyeliner

I really like how pigmented the formula is, the payoff is great – instantly saturates in one swipe and builds easily for a more intense look. Another impressive thing about this eyeliner is how long-lasting it is without transferring or fading.
