I get asked on an almost daily basis which foundations and concealers are the best for pale skin tones, and this series is going to explore all different types of products from varying brands and at all price levels which will hopefully help you to make a decision on which foundation and concealer is right for you!
In universal skin tone terms.. I'm an NC15 in Mac. However, Mac isn't really doing it for me at the moment, so i'm on the hunt for a replacement that will be the perfect foundation for My Pale Skin.
Packaging: The Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer comes in a sturdy plastic tube with a matte black twist lid. For application the product comes with a Doe Foot applicator.
Coverage: I'd say that the product gives a medium - full coverage.
Colour: Shade Chantilly is the lightest of the range. It's a yellow under toned pale concealer and quite possibly the lightest base product I've come across in a very long time. I may have let out a little squeal when I swatched it for the first time.
Finish: I found the Radiant Creamy Concealer gives an almost satin finish. It's not quite matte, and certainly not dewy, but simply the best of both worlds. Once blended it gives a beautiful natural finish that covers imperfections and dark circles.
Final Verdict: It's official. I'm in love. The Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer has PASSED the pale test with flying colours. I love everything about this concealer and let me just start by telling you about the colour. I never thought I'd see the day where I had to circle around a swatch of concealer because you can't tell where it's applied. Not only is the colour spot on, but it blends out beautifully and gives the most natural diffused appearance. I thought the collection Lasting perfection concealer was good until I tried this one, and I was simply blown away at how incredible this product is. Although it's fairly pricey at £22.00, It's so worth every penny and if you have pale skin like me - hunt it down and give it a swatch as It's an absolute game changer for me.
As Always, I'd love to hear your thoughts on this concealer or what you'd like me to try next, let me know in the comments.
