I guess this post was inevitable: the minute I saw these brand new NARS concealers, I knew I had to try them. Not that I need a new concealer, but since so many of you guys requested a review on my Instagram - I figured it was my duty to get my hands on one and give you a proper feedback. If you are a concealer-junkie or #NARSissist just like moi, then this review is for you!
Product Overview & Claims
Soft Matte Complete Concealer line was launched earlier in January and this might be the brand's first concealer, which comes in a pot. What I love about NARS is that they are very inclusive and I am glad they have created a whopping colour range (everything from fair to deep).
The brand claims that this concealer will do the following: look natural / give you a high coverage / smooth imperfections / remain long-wearing, non-drying and comfortable. You also have 0.21 Oz or 6.2 g of an actual product here, which compared to other pot-concealers, is more than what you normally get. For example compared to my favourite Becca Ultimate Coverage Concealer - the one by NARS has 2g more and costs 2 USD less. In other words - you get a good amount of product for the price.
Packaging & Formula
Soft Matte concealer comes in a rounded pot and has a signature NARS packaging. The cap is rubberised and if you own any other NARS face products - you know this one will get quite grubby over time; I don't mind it getting all fingerprint-y, because it's just make-up at the end of the day.
The formula is very unique and I haven't tried anything quite like it. Just like the name suggests, this is a creamy and matte texture at the same time - meaning it applies like a cream, but has a distinctive matte finish to it. Compared to other concealers, this one almost feels powdery and still is very lightweight and smooth.
