It's been almost two years since I started using this, and it is safe to say that this is my Holy Grail concealer. It's never let me down, and it's truly the only makeup product I can't do without. Everything else is interchangeable, but I need to have this in my arsenal at all times.

The concealer comes in typically sleek packaging, as all Nars products do. I like that the tube is plastic so you can tell how much product is left. the wand is attached to their signature rubberized packaging, which is a shame. I really hate the rubber on Nars products. It gets dirty really easily, but worse still, it gets sticky over time.
When you pull the wand out, it's a tight fit through the entrance of the tube, so it scrapes off some of the product to prevent you from overloading your face with concealer. There's also a traditional doe foot applicator which makes application a breeze.

I'm still not sure how people apply their concealer with the applicator solely, but I tend to stick with application and then patting in with my ring finger.
What I love about this concealer is that it counteracts dark circles fantastically well without being thick and goopy. I do think I will have to go a shade lighter just to give it a shot, but I'm still very happy with this. It also blends like a dream and stays put once it's set.

I forgot to take a close-up of the application, but I have noticed that it sinks into the lines under my eyes a lot less than other concealers do. It also stays on without straying or feathering for longer than anything else.
8 hours later and what I've got is creasing, but not excessively so. It still looks good from afar, it's just that when you're up close you can see the undereye drama going on. Unlike a lot of concealers I've used in the past, what I've found is that this doesn't wear off as easily. It keeps my dark circles hidden, and it is extremely comfortable to wear.
This is definitely my favourite concealer of all time. It's going to take a monumental effort to dislodge this as the best concealer ever!
