NARS Concealer Stick Review Cacao

NARS concealer stick review

With less than three years to go until my wedding (woop woop!) I've started thinking about bridal makeup looks. 

I've got my foundation covered (no pun intended) but I'm still on the lookout for a decent concealer. In an ideal world, a concealer will do exactly what its name says; CONCEAL those dark circles under the eyes and hide all your spots and blemishes. Oh and not forgetting be the right shade to blend with your foundation.

Does this perfect concealer even exist?!  I keen to find out!  After chatting to my sister, she recommended I try NARS concealer stick which she swears by. 

Available in ten shades from the fairest complexions to a medium dark, in theory there is a shade for everyone.

I popped into Space NK, Kings Road branch during my lunch break and a helpful assistant selected Cacao for me to try. She applied it under my eyes, using a slick NARS foundation brush which worked a treat I just had to purchase it along with the concealer stick.

Cacao was named "Best Concealer for Dark Skin" by InStyle magazine so I was keen to see exactly what all the fuss was about. Was I impressed? Yes!  The concealer has deep gold brown undertones suited to my complexion. It is creamy, smooth and easy to blend and apply against my current foundation. It lasted from lunch until early hours of the evening without a top up so I would agree that it is long lasting. However my only concern is that it is so small! I dread to think how long it will last me, and costing £17.50 it isn't the cheapest concealer stick either...

So has this ended my hunt for the perfect concealer? It's still early days, but from what I've tried, I like it. I've  got a few months until the big day and decide if this is the winning concealer. Will keep you updated!
