NARS Product Review – My First Impression

nars

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

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.

I usually use my fingers to apply concealers, rather than using a brush. I find it works better that way for me.
The product has no scent which is good. I don’t think any concealer has smell, but I have this habit of smelling every make-up product.

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.

What do you think of this Duo Concealer from NARS? Have you tried it? Leave your comments below.

    I am a fan of the NARS Creamy Concealer; I’ve never tried the duo but I imagine the texture must be as creamy and lasting. I use Ginger and it is a perfect match (I’m Stromboli in NARS foundations and Ginger is nice and yellow for me). These look a tad too orange for my liking.

    • The texture is smooth and creamy but I was too quick to purchase this duo concealer and ended up with the wrong shade and it’s not the products fault 😦 Thanks for your comment 🙂 xo

    I like your new layout Sharon! 😀
    You could use these colours to contour or even as eye shadow bases! I think Praline could be a cream blusher for you even. Did you find this at Winners / Marshalls? Great score.

    Did you buy this in store?
    Ive never noticed these at the nars counter 🙂
    I agree, I think ginger would be a much better match (perfect for my nc40 skin too) 😊😊

  4. Thanks for sharing your opinion on this NARS duo. I can’t pull off anything that orange, but appreciate your tip to moisturize prior to use. Thanks!

    I love their Radiant concealer, but haven’t tried this one. I’m in need of something better coverage, maybe this would be good!

    this sounds so nice! love the idea of a cream to powder finish! And at first I though this was a cream contour kit! And in comparison to your skin – seems like maybe you could use it as such, since the colors arent quite a match for you as concealer!

    Great review – I agree and love a lighter/powdery concealer, they’re usually the kind I go for so I might give this one a go actually, considering most people have a lot of positive feedback for NARS but I haven’t tried anything from them yet!

    You could use the darker shades as a color corrector to hide dark circles, or you could use it as a blush or contour. It looks like a gorgeous shade.

    Nice review! Nars is super expensive so it’s definitely hard to part with a lot of money not knowing if it’s worth it! xo J

  11. I haven’t tried this concealer from NARS but I use NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer and I would be lost without it. It’s one of the best beauty products I have ever owned. I find the cream concealers like the one you got look too heavy or patchy under the eye area. If you can return it since the color is off, try the cream radiant, it will blow you mind. It’s so incredibly good.

    This looks interesting! I havent ever tried Nars products or any kind of concealer where the purchaser mixes it to create their shade. Kind of a neat idea for people who will put the time into it… I am not one of those people. LOL.
