Hey my loves.
Today I want to share with you a drugstore dupe for the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. I think I’m a bit late finding this out, but better late than never, eh?
The dupe is the Nyx HD Concealer.
This retails at a price of £6 and is widely available from Nyx.co.uk, Boots, Asos, Selfridges and Feelunique.
This concealer has a similar consistency to the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, which retails at a price of £23.
Here are some swatches:
I picked up the shade 04 beige. The shade is similar to ‘Custard’ from Nars. My shade in the Nars concealer is ‘Ginger,’ so I was worried the Nyx concealer would be too light for my skin tone. I looked at shades 05 and 06 and realised they had pink undertones. By the time I got to shade 07, I was hitting the deeper skin tones. So I thought I’d give 04 a whirl. I’ve made this shade work, by the time it’s blended into my tinted moisturiser and I have bronzer on, it looks amazing. Sometimes I’ll add a touch of bronzer under my eyes just to warm it up if I feel like I’ve applied too much concealer, just to get rid of the light cast under my eyes. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good, highlighted under eye area, but I get paranoid that it looks too light with this concealer! You can also colour correct before applying this concealer, which helps warm up the concealer.
I can definitely say this is an extremely high coverage concealer. A little goes a long way. I’ve noticed that if you slap a whole load of this concealer under your eye area, it will look cakey and will settle into fine lines.
It has a doe foot applicator, which makes life so much more easier!
The packaging is my fave, the glass bottle makes it feel more up market and classy.
Would I repurchase it? Maybe, I’m still 50/50 about it.
So yeah, here’s the dupe! Super affordable, great coverage and can be used to highlight areas of the face. There isn’t a wide shade range to choose from, so many people might not be lucky enough to find their shade.
I hope you enjoyed this post. Comment below on what your fave concealers are. 💕
