Blends well, matte, brightening
Out of all of the high end concealers that I have tried (Tarte Shape Tape, Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, THIS CONCEALER, and the Tarte Aquacealer) as well as drugstore ones, The Nars Soft Matte Concealer is the ONLY concealer that does not crease on me at all. Not even after 12 hrs of wear. This thing does not settle into my fine lines under my eyes and does not separate. All of my concealers would crease on me INSTANTLY, as soon as I was done blending it out and even after I set it. When I had first used this, I applied it with a concealer brush and blended it out with a beauty blender... it ended up creasing on me immediately. I was SOO disappointed and thought this was a total miss... BUT THEN i tried scooping up a little bit of product, placing it on the back of my hand, warmed it up with my fingers, applied and spread it onto my under eyes with my fingers, THEN blended it out with my beauty blender and.... oh my gosh. There was NO CREASING AT ALL. I set one side with LM translucent setting powder and one without. After wearing this for 12 hrs... both sides did not settle into my fine lines or separate throughout the day. The finish was a nice soft matte finish with a blurring effect on my pores. It was gorgeous. If you're having a problem with it creasing on your under eyes and are applying it with a brush initially - try and warm up the product, apply and spread it with your fingers then blend with a damp sponge. I saw A HUGE difference when I did this. This is definitely worth the price, for I have FINALLY FOUND MY HOLY GRAIL CONCEALER!

Good for under eye, hydrating, not creasing
I love this for spot concealing! It’s not too heavy and blends out nicely while covering up my spots. Creases and is a little dry on the undereye for me though.

Heavy, non brightening, creasing
This is hard pass for me. I ordered it sure that I love it and I'm going to have to send it back. Ugh. I use the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer usually layered over a corrector since I have very dark circles. That works well, but I thought it would be great to use just one layer and YouTubers were all saying how full coverage this Soft Matte Complete Concealer was... Nope, nope, nope. First, this is not very full coverage unless you cake it on. And no one wants cakey concealer. This is less coverage the Radiant Creamy Concealer. This also layers poorly over correctors and got really crease-y really fast. Second, this is a different color than the Radiant Creamy Concealer. I am the palest ever so I use Chantilly. This was slightly darker and a smidgen pink. I swatched them side-by-side to make sure I wasn't imagining it. Third, this is super dry. I get that it's matte, but it is so dry that it looks bad. To by fair, I do have very dry skin and it's winter, but I used my usual moisturizing process. And I tried this on three different days.


Compared to other concealers, the ingredients in this product are about as safe as the average product.
