This concealer isn't new to me, I bought my first tube years ago! Back in the days, only 10 shades were available in the full-size format. Now we have 30 shades to choose from!

Up until the last 2-3 weeks, I had not used it much this year because I've tested many other concealers, but it's still one of my favorites.

It's just so easy to work with, it doesn't dry too fast and it blends out like a dream!

But what really sets this one apart is that the formula is more forgiving on aging skin.

I find that as I'm getting older, some concealers I used to love now make me look older. It's not the case with this NARS concealer!

Oh and by the way, I use Affogato when my skin is pale and Cannelle when I'm tan.

I would say that the finish is luminous but not dewy, and it has a subtle brightening effect. The finish is really beautiful and it doesn't look cakey!

The coverage is light-to-medium with one layer, and medium-to-full with two layers. I suggest to wait a few minutes after the first layer if you want more coverage.

It feels a bit moisturizing but it doesn't feel greasy, sticky or heavy. It doesn't fully dry down, so I always set it with my NARS' Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder. It's my favorite setting powder for the under-eye area!

It still creases a little bit even if I set it with loose powder, but it's not very noticeable and all concealers crease on me anyway.

I wish it was more opaque but the formula is so good for my thirty year old eyes, so it doesn't bother me that much if my dark circles are slightly more visible than usual!

Have you tried this concealer? Do you love it as much as I do?
