Review: NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer!

When I ran out of my NARS Radiance Creamy Concealer my intention was to pick up a new one of them, but the temptation to try something new and fun got too strong and I clicked home the NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer instead.

This is a potted concealer, which I don’t have very many of. The design is simple and classic NARS with the soft rubber black matte cap with the logo printed on. Simple and classic, and also a very unisex look which I would consider a plus these days. The size of this is very handy though, because I can just dip the tip of my beauty sponge straight into the pot so I don’t have to fuzz around with a brush. Being a fan of blending out the concealer with a sponge that is a big plus for me so I don’t have to add that extra step of applying it with a brush, or (gosh no!) put my fingers in the pot.

The first thing that impressed me was how creamy and nice the concealer felt. I was expecting it to be a bit more dense and dry in formula since it’s not a liquid in a tube, but this one applies very smooth and creamy. It blends quickly into the skin as well.

I really like the looks of it. It gives a sort of blurred out look to the under eye, and it gives a very good coverage while still looking quite natural on the skin. It has a matte finish but I dont think it looks dry or enhance texture or fine lines as I find to be the case with some other matte concealers I’ve tried.

I am actually really impressed by the blurring effect of this concealer because it really makes my under eyes look very smooth and perfected. It’s almost like it brightens, evens out and gives a “lift” in addition to cover up darkness.

Since this concealer has great coverage I found that it also work really well to spot conceal. Since it’ in a pot I found it very handy to just use a tiny little brush and spot conceal on any place necessary an the good coverage makes a little go a long way so it does not look heavy on the skin.

It does not feel heavy either as the formula is very lightweight. If that was not good enough I didn’t see any issues with creasing either and the tiniest bit of setting powder is enough to seal the deal, which off course helps get a natural look.

I am a big fan and I can already say for sure that I will repurchase this one when I one day run out, which I expect to take a while as a little goes a long way. Just a solid great quality concealer!

Did you try this? I would love to hear you opinion in the comments!

My Makeup Collection 2018: Concealers!

Concealers are a lifesaver for so many of us! If you just want to look a little for awake it is so easy to just pop some concealer under the eyes and it makes the world of a difference. So we off course need some bits and pieces to choose from!

I still feel like I have a quite manageable collection of concealers. I do use them every day, so I don’t feel like they go to waist. I get good use out of every single concealer I own.

So the total amount of concealers are 14. I am quite happy with this number. I think it is neither too much or too little. I did recently finish my Esteè Lauder Double Wear Concealer and I will definitely repurchase that one in the near future.

I do actually have a clear favorites among these guys and that is the Chanel concealer. That for me is the definition of concealer perfection! I do actually like most of these and except from the L’Oreal True Match and the Everyday Mineral concealers, I will repurchase every single one of these when I run out!

As always it will be exciting to see how my collection look one year from now when I plan to redo this series.

Are there some really awesome concealers out there I am missing out on? Let me know!
