NARS – Soft Matte Complete Concealer

This concealer has everything i’ve ever looked for!

Easy to blend, amazing coverage, travel friendly and a great shade range! I am in the shade Vanilla which is actually a tad bit too light for me but works fine for now (i am buying the correct shade asap) Keep in mind that the shades can actually vary from this Soft Matte Concealer vs the Radiant Creamy Concealer!

I bought this NARS concealer when i ran out of my radiant creamy concealer. I wanted to try this as i had read some reviews about it but i was a bit hesitant because it came in a jar (although the packaging is stunning) and had matte in the product name. But my doubts were unjustified – i love this concealer!


I’ve had the radiant creamy concealer for a long time, mostly for under eye area but it works as a spot concealer as well. I have combination skin meaning that sometimes it’s oily and sometimes it’s dry but usually i have an oily t-zone and the rest of my face tends to be dry. This concealer stays put all day!


This concealer works wonders as a spot concealer, either as a corrector or to cover pimples! It covers without looking dry and the formula is incredibly creamy and a little goes a long way! I use a concealer brush to pick up the product, then a fluffier smaller brush to spread it out and finally i pat it in place using my finger. On days when i need to get ready quickly i just use a concealer brush and my finger and skip the middle step!

I can say that it works so well without foundation that i am in fact using this to spot conceal and then i go over with my MAC – mineralize skinfinish natural powder to achieve a flawless look all day! I tend not to wear foundation on a daily basis.

When it comes to concealing under my eyes, well, it does work but since it is a very matte formula and a bit thicker than your average fluid concealer i’d say be careful with the amount of product. I use it just at the bottom of my “eyebags” so to say just where my skin meets my cheek in a patting motion with my finger to brighten up that area and avoid any creasing. For me this works great, if you are looking for a full coverage under eye concealer then use the radiant creamy concealer instead. But for everyday i just go with this method.

Plus points that it contains collagen-boosting peptides, hyaluronic acid, and a protective cocktail of Vitamins A, C, and E! I am very happy with this concealer!

Irish and UK shoppers can buy it HERE and retails from around 26€

  1. Love this concealer, it’s the one I reach for the most! The pot grossed me out at first too but I just make sure my hands are clean and that tends to help make me feel better! Usually I apply it with my finger and then blend it out with a sponge but I can definitely use only my finger in a rush!
