NARS Soft Matte Concealer

I have tried so many concealers and never found one that I am completely happy with. They are either the wrong shade, too cakey, too drying, not enough coverage etc.

So, on my quest to find the perfect concealer, I decided to try a NARS one. This is the soft matte concealer in shade medium 1 – Custard.

I brought this from ASOS as I had some loyalty points to spend. I loved the idea of this product because it claims to have collagen boosting peptides and hyaluronic acid to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and pores by helping plump the skin.


Everyone wants different things from a concealer. For me, I want one that brightens under my eyes and provides coverage to my red patches of skin around my nose and on my chin.

I have been using this product for a few weeks now and I do really like it. It’s not perfect, but it’s definitly the best concealer I have tried so far.

I apply using my fingers. You don’t need much of this product so although it’s a little pot, I think this will last me a long time.


I pat the concealer into my skin, after my foundation and before my powder. It is a very matte finish and I find I don’t need to put powder on the areas I have concealed. If I do put powder over the top, it can cake up, particularly under my eyes. I have also been applying this on my eyelids as an eyeshadow base and it helps keep my eyeshadow in place all day.

This is a full coverage concealer but it’s not drying at all. It’s a very creamy consistancy which is easy to apply and feels very lightweight on the skin. This shade is also perfect for me. There are 16 shades to choose from.

Have you tried this? Whats your favourite concealer?

  1. Great post! I’ve been curious about this concealer in the past. I heard ‘matte’ and I shudder cause who wants anything drying or cakey under the eye?? Yet it gets rave reviews from most people. So your review is super helpful. I just started using the NARS Creamy Concealer with the applicator, and I really like that one!
