I had heard so many great things about the Nars creamy concealer, it's insane. So being the biggest concealer junkie ever, I had to get my hands on this one at some point. On my last trip to France, I finally purchased my own at Sephora. I have been trying it out for a couple of days now and I can finally decide if I personally think it is worth the hype.
The Nars creamy concealers come in a gloss-type tube with a doe foot applicator. The lid is rubberized, matte black, typical Nars. I like how that looks, very sleek and chic but it gets dirty really fast. These are available in 10 shades, all with peachy or yellow undertones, which is perfect for hiding those dark circles.
I got the shade Custard (medium 1), which is a yellow toned concealer, perfect for light to medium skin.
The consistency of these is perfection. The applicator makes it so easy to apply this and blending is also a piece of cake. The formula is super creamy and it's not to heavy or to light. Although the swatches are pretty intense, the coverage is light to medium. You can build it up, but not to a full coverage concealer in my opinion. I use this primarily on my under-eye area and occasionally on a couple of blemishes or break-outs if necessary. For some people, the medium coverage can be a deal-breaker, but I personally hate heavy concealers, it never looks good on me. That's why I love this one so much. It also does not crease on me. Well maybe by the end of the day it might have gotten just a little bit into my fine lines, but I have that with a lot concealers.

Nars did a really great job on the formula of these. I like how it's so easy to apply and blend and how it's not too heavy. If you're looking for full coverage concealers that literarily hide every single blemish and dark circle, I wouldn't recommend getting this one as it is a light to medium coverage.
Is it worth the hype? In my opinion, yes. But I can imagine not everybody falling head over heals with this one. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer is available at Nars counters and online for about €27 (6ml).
