Try Out Tuesday – NARS Cosmetics Soft Matte Complete Concealer

January 24, 2023

The @narsissist Soft Matte Complete Concealer ($32 for .21 ounces – has been a favorite of so many beauty influencers for so many years, so I was shocked when I received this sample and realized I had never tried it! I am excited to give it a go and see if it lives up to the longstanding hype!

What it claims:
🔘 A full-coverage, oil-free concealer that conceals and blurs imperfections with a soft-matte, natural-looking finish
🔘 Contains Optimal Diffusion Powder, which transforms the look of skin by blurring imperfections with light-diffusing spheres
🔘 The formula delivers all-day wear and high coverage that’s non-cakey, and won’t settle into fine lines and pores
🔘 Free of sulfates SLS and SLES, parabens, formaldehydes, formaldehyde-releasing agents, phthalates, oil, mineral oil, oxybenzone, coal tar, hydroquinone, triclosan, and triclocarban, and contains less than one percent of synthetic fragrances
🔘 Vegan and gluten-free

My verdict?
I applied this under my eyes and down the center of my face using a brush to pick up and lay the product down and a damp sponge to blend it out. Since I saw a little bit of creasing almost right away, I did set it with loose setting powder. The shade I used, of the four (4) options available to me, was Vanilla Light 2 and it worked well. It blended out easily and the coverage was perfect. Unfortunately, with it being winter and my skin craving hydrating products over mattifying ones, I have noticed that on my chin and slightly under my eyes, the product looks quite dry and faded. This may be perfect for me in the summer, but, for right now, it’s a pass.

FYI, I receive a small commission when you shop via the link listed above. There is no additional cost to you, but it supports me and my blog and I greatly appreciate it!
