You’ll know when I’m tired because my eyes will sink behind dark puffy circles; a look I’ve been sporting a lot recently- attractive! I find the puffiness hard to treat (Sisley Eye contour mask is pretty good) but my staple beauty product for when I’m working nights is Nars’ Radiant Creamy Concealer!
I first bought this product over 2 years ago and fell in love with it instantly. After years of buying drug store concealers (which were awful) I decided to splash out and try this cult product (RRP £22). The first thing I noticed was the amazing coverage it provides. I often get angry looking spots and this would help minimise their appearance significantly. As the name suggests it does have a creamy texture which helps the product to stay in place. One thing I found with cheaper concealers is that as soon as you applied other makeup, the concealer would move and provide no benefit whatsoever.
The product is described as radiant but in my opinion I would say it sways slightly more to the matte side which I don’t necessarily think is a bad thing. The last thing you want is to draw attention to the areas you’re trying to conceal with light-catching shimmer. (YSL Touche Eclat springs to mind).
The longer I’ve had the product, the more wonderful uses I have found for it! As well as concealing blemishes, I now use it under my eyes, forehead and cupid bow to help sculpt and define certain features (demonstrated in the glamorous photos above). It’s amazing and so easy to use. Just apply with the wand and blend with your fingers, makeup brush or sponge. For blemishes, I prefer to dab a bit on my finger and apply to my face to try and keep the wand clean.
My shade is called ‘Vanilla’ and is one of 10 shades this product is available in. £22 may sound expensive but my first tube lasted me over 2 years and the only reason I had to buy another one was because I lost it! A little really does goes a long way with this product!
Have any of you tried it or have any other recommendations for dark circles? I would love to know! Just leave a comment below 🙂
