NARS Creamy Concealer vs. Maybelline Fit Me Concealer

2015/01/img_2368-0.jpg

The NARS Creamy Concealer was recently featured in my Favorite Beauty Products of 2014 post. This concealer is amazing and I have used it everyday since I bought it. I have read numerous reviews and blog posts about the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer being a good dupe for this NARS Concealer. Now, I already owned the Maybelline concealer and felt I was able to do this comparison because I have used this concealer for years.

First off, the packaging of both products is very similar. Both in a tube, both have a doe-foot applicator. Now, the NARS packaging is a little heavier and sturdier, but it is a lot more expensive than the Maybelline one. The NARS concealer retails for $29, while the Maybelline concealer is around $5, depending on what drugstore you go to. So, big difference there.

The formula and texture of the concealers are very different. The NARS concealer is pretty thick, and has a nice cream consistency. The Maybelline concealer is thinner and slightly…slicker.

Now the coverage is very different also. The NARS concealer is pretty full coverage. You only need a little bit and it will cover great. The Maybelline concealer is more sheer, so I do not use this around my eyes. It’s a little more thin and tends to crease. I will only use it for redness, blemishes, or anything on my skin that I would like to cover. It does a great job of that.

The NARS concealer works for both. I use a lighter shade (Chantilly) underneath my eyes to brighten and cover circles, and I use my exact skintone shade (vanilla) on my face. It lasts all day (I set it of course) and it’s just perfect.

So, if you are looking for a concealer that works great for your face and not for under your eyes, I would say definitely go with the Maybelline concealer. It does do a good job of concealing on your face. There are 6 shades, so it is easy to find your match.

If you want a dual purpose concealer and want to splurge a little, I say go for this NARS one. It is pretty spendy – but I think it’s worth it.

Hope this helps you out if you are looking for a new concealer! πŸ™‚

Thanks for reading!

  1. I’ve still not got round to buying the Nars concealer yet and I want it so badly! Will have to pick it up as soon as I’ve ran out of concealer, it sounds so good!
