Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer

Price: £23.00 (RRP)

Stockists: ASOS, Feelunique, Harvey Nichols, John Lewis, NARS Covent Garden, narscosmetics.co.uk & Selfridges

They say: THE COVERAGE: Full. THE FINISH: Soft matte. THE BENEFITS: Blurs. Smooths. Hides imperfections. Non- drying. Oil-free. THE RESULT: Weightlessly perfects with a natural-looking, soft- focus effect.

We say: This concealer is perfect for covering pigmentation, whilst leaving a natural and radiant finish. The NARS Soft Matte concealer is ideal for skin, but not the undereye area. Neither does it settle into fine lines around the mouth. There is a wide shade range (16 shades), so whether you have a pink or yellow undertone, you’ll be sure to find your match. The darker shades can be used as a cream contour and the lighter shades to illuminate and accentuate certain areas of the face. With minimal to no touch-ups throughout the day, this concealer is breaking the beauty rules of just a standard concealer.

 

Packaging

Simple yet elegant. The packing is straight to the point – no gimmicks. The lid is the traditional black velvet finish with the logo on top. The container holding the product is made of glass. This convenient, small and compact product is perfect to pop into your handbag. The only downfall is, it doesn’t come in a compact with a mirror like the NARS duo concealers do!

 

Effectiveness

This product does what is says on the tin. Conceals with a matte finish. It is long wearing and has skin benefits (collagen peptides, hyaluronic acid and vitamin A, C and E).

 

Value for money

The NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer is quite pricey. But for the quality of the product, it can be justified. Just using a little of the product can go a long way. If used sparingly, it will last you a while!
