I have been torn between purchasing this or the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, resulting in me just putting off purchasing either for the past few months. It was my birthday recently and I let my other half do the decision making for me… I knew he was a keeper because I bloody love this concealer!
I went for the shade “light neutral,” I was expecting neither yellow or pink tones and a fairly pale shade. I have to say this colour isn’t perfect for me, it is definitely more on the yellow side rather than neutral, and for using it around my eyes I would usually go for a shade lighter, but I can still get away with it and use it for both my eyes (bags) and blemishes. The pigmentation is unbeatable, a really small amount goes such a long way so I can see this lasting me a while.
This feels really light on the skin with a texture somewhere between a liquid and a cream, and it is so easy to blend! I use a beauty blender and within 20 seconds my eye area is covered and the finish is flawless and streak free. I have oily skin with some areas of dehydration and I find some concealers to crease and become patchy around my eyes, I haven’t experienced this at all whilst using this, even after 10 hours of wear, yes it may have faded, but I could still see it was doing something!
Working from 7-4 on a Monday I need a concealer with some serious coverage and staying power, and yet another box is ticked because this stuff literally doesn’t budge. It lasts all day and doesn’t sit or gather in any fine lines. I feel like longevity in a concealer is so important, I don’t want to see my horrendous eye bags or massive spot half way through the day, a good concealer is one that stays put!
So Urban Decay seemed to have worked their magic again, I used to only turn to Urban Decay for their eyeshadow palettes, but after trying this I can see that changing. I can honestly say that this is the best concealer I have ever tried, from the packaging to the formulation, this is the concealer for me!
Have you tried this? (if you haven’t you need to)
