Happy Monday my beauties!
I seem to always be on the hunt for a great concealer. I have favourites for sure, but I have never found one that actually does everything I want it to (full coverage, hydrating, not crease, longwear, etc.) Basically, I want my concealer to be so flawless, that it doesn’t look like I am wearing concealer – isn’t that the ultimate goal?!
Guys… I think I may have actually found it. The holy grail of holy grails. The concealer that just blew all other concealers off my vanity, never to be thought of again. I am talking about the Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer. This has been my go to concealer for about 2 weeks and I can already tell that this will be a long love affair.
I have used it daily and where I used to have to mix concealers to get the coverage, colour and consistency that I wanted, I now only need to apply the Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer and set it with some powder and I’m good to go!
So what makes it so special?

What narscosmetics.com says:
“Natural look. High coverage. Concealing hits an all-time high with this lightweight, full coverage concealer. Get high-performance correction with soft-focus blurring: Soft Matte Complete Concealer instantly conceals dark circles, redness, discolouration, hyperpigmentation, blemishes, and acne with a light-diffusing effect that blurs and smooths. Overtime, skin becomes softer and smoother from collagen-boosting peptides, hyaluronic acid, and a protective cocktail of Vitamins A, C, and E. Complete comfort. Completely natural-looking coverage.”
There are 16 shades to choose from and I have always felt that Nars has one of the best colour selections when it comes to concealers and foundations. Their shades accommodate a variety of undertones and skin tones. My perfect shade is Custard. Check out this handy pick detailing the colour range:
Francois Nars, the Founder and Creative Director of Nars said this about creating the Soft Matte Complete Concealer:
“I have always believed that less is more. I created this concealer so you could just dab it on with your finger, deliver the highest level of coverage with the least amount of product, and still look completely natural.”
Just like Mr. Nars himself said, I apply this concealer everyday with just a little dab of my finger and then, *POOF*, no more dark circles and I instantly look refreshed. This concealer is like magic! The concealer has a creamy consistency, yet it blends out seamlessly. Since this is a matte concealer, some believe that setting it with powder is not necessary. However, I find that I get dewy throughout the day so setting my concealer with powder is crucial! Honestly, I do not know how else to describe the utter perfection that is this concealer. This concealer just makes my skin look flawless yet still look like skin.
I advise you to be careful when applying this concealer as a little bit goes a long way. It is worth noting that this concealer is definitely buildable, so you can control the coverage you are looking for. Although this concealer is a bit on the pricey side ($37), the fact that you do not need a lot of product means a pot of this concealer will last you quite awhile.
