- Sephora User

it blurs my pores and looks lovely

blends well

the coverage is enough for me to cover active zits and dark spots on my very fair skin but the consistency is so smooth, lightweight, and easy to blend its undetectable

- Sephora User

easy to apply, perfectly blends with my pale olive skin tone

- Mecca User


not creasing

despite it being a full coverage concealer, the texture is natural and lightweight (a little goes a long way), so it doesn't settle into fine lines or wrinkles (great for all skin types)

- Sephora User

i have had absolutely no creasing

- Sephora User



the texture is silky and goes on beautifully

- Sephora User

the soft, creamy texture glides on smoothly and leaves a lovely matte finish

- Sephora User

color correction

conceals and blurs immediately, even without a color corrector or primer

no creasing, no dry patches, no texture and no color corrector showing through

- Sephora User

under eye

good for under eye

this is my favorite concealer for under the eyes and blemishes

- Sephora User

great for hiding under eye circles and blemishes

- Nordstrom User



it doesn't look or feel drying, heavy, or uncomfortable

- Ulta User

it’s super full coverage without looking cakey

- Sephora User



this gives a very soft velvet finish that is not drying and lasts all day

- Sephora User

- Sephora User

color accuracy

doesn't oxidize

it's buildable, doesn't look thick, doesn't budge, doesn't change color

- Sephora User

soft matte in vanilla looked too light on me although it oxidizes a little, but i love how pigmented and natural creme brulee is

- Sephora User



i have never had a problem with my under eyes being dry but this concealer gave me really bad dry patches under my eyes and on my cheeks

- Sephora User

after read so many good things about it, i thought i give it a go, but this concealer is very dry, cannot be used under eyes because it will show every little lines you don't even have, then i used it around my nose area, still very dry and patchy after few hours wearing

- Feelunique User



the coverage is incredible, and the soft demi-matte finish is gorgeous

- Sephora User

it provides a demi-matte finish that just makes my skin look totally porcelain

- Sephora User


medium coverage

i was a bit apprehensive about a pot concealer but it's so creamy, soft and blendable and very easily builds up from medium to full coverage

- Sephora User

nars blends with ease, is medium coverage but is full coverage if layered

Not for dry skin

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. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="4890646714254551662-full" data-show="4890646714254551662-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>

Truly full coverage

I recently had a horrible cystic breakout which resulted in a ton of red acne scars. Unfortunately I have a hard skin tone to colour match (I'm a pale olive ~ NC 20) so a lot of concealers I've tried are still noticeably different from my skin tone. Because of this, I always do concealer first to add extra coverage and then apply my foundation on top to mask its colour. I know I could probably get a lot more coverage if I did my concealer on top of my foundation and blended it out but l don't do that for the reasons mentioned above. So far none of the other full coverage concealers that I have: (makeup forever full cover concealer, urban decay naked skin, hourglass hidden corrective, it cosmetics bye bye redness) were able to fully cover my pigmentation, and I had problems with all of them "lifting" and blending out into nothing when I added foundation on top with my beauty blender. I decided to try this concealer after seeing great reviews and I'm so glad I did. I'm able to apply this concealer and once it's dried it does not move an inch. my scars are mostly on my cheeks and this concealer doesn't budge after each "layer and blend" of my foundation, contour and powder. It has a creamier consistency when applied to the skin but dries down matte, but in a way that does not overly dry out your skin and emphasize flakiness. It's a great concealer for those with skin issues that need a highly pigmented product in order to get good coverage. I use custard which is too dark and yellow for my skin tone (NARS, it would be awesome if you could please add more truly neutral shades) but it's not a huge deal. As far as using this as an under eye concealer, I don't think I would recommend it as I believe it would be too drying for that area. Ultimately I hope others will give this a try because it really lives up to its hype!! Less

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! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-3233471443162093676-full" data-show="-3233471443162093676-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>

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.

Nars has out did themselves with this formula! I have oily/blemish prone skin and nothing holds up or covers blemishes like this. I started using this concealer for spot after applying Becca’s green color corrector but find myself always wishing I had the Nars matte concealer pot in green instead due to the more tacky/matte formula, it holds up under or under foundation and Becca’s formula is oily and moves around too easy/won’t stay put. So I find myself lately skipping Becca’s green corrector and using it before and after foundation in its own and it does way better of a job! Nars please make this formula in a green color correcting shade! I do not use this for under my eyes as it is a more drying formula, it’s way better for spot concealing and you don’t need much because it’s so full coverage. The tube formula of the radiant creamy concealer is much better suited for under eye (which is amazing as well). I’ve been using the same soft matte concealer pot religiously every day for the last 8 months and it’sstill not empty, worth every penny spent and I️ don’t have buyers remorse like I️ did the Becca product. I hope this pot concealer product is never discontinued and they add color correcting shades! I truly recommend this to anyone needing excellent coverage for spots! Especially my oily/problem skin folks out there! You can thank me later :) For reference, I am light skin color and use canelle shade all summer/fall. It’s the winter months its a tad to dark so I just ordered the vanilla shade, which is too light-more greyish undertone so I mix vanilla & canelle to get a closer match. It would be nice to see another shade in between those too that’s more warm then vanilla and a tad darker! « less

Any recommendations for color correcting or concealing pot creams ? I want to use it for my under eyes so I hope it wouldnt dry it out heavily. Imma attach the Becca one as a reference to what I’m looking for. Please recommend any dupes or drugstore options.

Concealer I need help choosing a concealer. I have a few fine lines around my eyes but not too bad. I use jojoba oil before concealer so it doesn’t settle into my lines. I don’t want cakey either. I have dry skin so I need a formula that isn’t drying. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

hey guys, so i’m a 13 y/o girl with pretty sensitive skin and i’m looking for a concealer that i can wear all by its self (for quick application in the morning before school). It should cover my (mild) acne and dark circles under my eyes and it’ll stay on all day at school(even after PE class)! any of you guys have any ideas? i’ve tried everything and i don’t wanna keep spending money on stuff that doesn’t work! especially overpriced things! (id say anything over $40 would be too much for me).

I have super sensitive and acne-prone skin myself, so I totally hear you! If you’re willing to splurge a little, this is by far the best concealer for acne.

Nars Full Coverage Concealer. I had a guest come and ask me to help her cover up and when I used it, it was like it was never there. Does not cake up since it feels creamy and a little goes such a long way
