Even though the color was not the perfect match for me, this was a great way to try the TEXTURE of NARS concealer. I always wanted to try NARS foundations, concealers etc, but their whopping price always scared me. But I bite the bullet and caved in since its calling my name. I got this for $19.99 and it’s a great price to try out some product from NARS.
Nars Duo Concealer is a cream compact concealer containing two shades in order to create your perfect color match. A compact containing two shades of NARS concealer. How pretty!
The first thing that I noticed about the concealer was its weight. This stuff is so light!! Its amazingly thin. The concealer is not sticky or overly drying.
I also noticed that the texture is different than any of my other cream concealers. Because it’s a cream, you’d expect it to be dense and creamy. It’s very lightweight and has a powdery feel once applied.
In order to get a nice natural finish, I feel that it’s necessary to moisturize your under-eyes before applying the concealer because the concealer is sort of dense, and a moisturizer helps it smooth on the skin and blend like a dream.
The shade Toffee is too dark and didn’t work well on me while the other shade Praline is lighter and it works better on my skin to hide dark under eyes circles and spots.
.Left – Praline , Right – Toffee
Above is the color swatch of the concealer. I’ve some stubborn dark under eyes which badly needs a good hide out lol! I find this formula to be sheer and you can built it up to medium coverage
The product is very very nice when it comes to TEXTURE. Its sad that the color didn’t match me as well as I wanted it to be. I think the lighter shade in Praline/Toffee duo which is meant for medium skin tone along with Ginger in this duo would work better on my NC 40 skin tone.
I would have wished the shades matches my skin tone better but I’ll continue to wear the Praline shade and would report back in my other post for more updates.
Nars products are available at Sephora and Nars website.
