The NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is one of the few products that we would say lives up to its hype. This liquid concealer is impressively long-wearing, and does an excellent job of disguising difficult discolorations like undereye circles and red marks from breakouts.

Despite the name, this isn't as moisturizing as you may expect, making it an ideal option for the face for those with oily to combination skin. It's thin texture avoids the tendency to crease into lines around the eyes, but we should note that if you have dry skin around the eye area, you may find its satin-matte finish too drying. The Radiant Creamy Concealer provides medium to full coverage, but can easily be sheered out if desired.

The generous shade range provides options suitable for very light to deep skin tones, which makes it easy to find a near exact match for most. As another option, this product also works well for priming eyelids and lips.

Pros:
  • Applies easily and blends well.
  • Provides vibrant, opaque color that resists creasing or fading throughout the day.
  • Can be used to prime eyes and lips.
  • Fragrance-free.
Cons:
  • None.

Brand Overview

NARS At-A-Glance

Frenchman Francois Nars has been painting the faces of New York's top models since arriving in the United States in 1984. Their images and his handiwork have been seen on the covers of countless fashion magazines, most notably Vogue and Elle. As the story often goes for the talented makeup artists who have become celebrities in their own right, Nars became frustrated with the state of available makeup and, surprise, another cosmetic line was born.

Beginning (as Bobbi Brown did) by launching a small collection of lipsticks in 1994, the clamor for the colors was incredible, and demand for more NARS products from the artist grew. Shortly thereafter an entire product line followed, gaining attention with vibrant, deeply pigmented colors, sleek, tactile-enhanced packaging and risqué shade names.

As an overview, NARS makeup has many strengths—it reaches its zenith with blushes, tinted moisturizer, foundations, brushes, and lipsticks. If you’re a fan of bold colors, you’ll find them here, and the brand offers consistently impressive foundations and concealers. NARS consistently impresses when it comes to offering a wide range of shades to suit nearly any skin tone.

Where NARS often falls short is in the amount of fragrance added to many of their skincare formulas. In some cases, the amount and specific fragrance ingredients chosen outweigh the potential benefits, so be sure to double check their review before buying. Overall, NARS offers a lot to love, and if you don’t mind splurging a bit (as their prices can be on the spendy side) there are quite a few makeup picks that come with our highest recommendations.

Strengths: Superior foundations and foundation shade options; excellent blushes; splurge-worthy lipsticks; beautiful bronzers and consistently impressive color products.

Weaknesses: Can be expensive; a few skincare formulas contain high amounts of fragrance.
