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! 🙂

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!

    1. Thank you, I’m glad you liked it! The shade I have in the Fit Me is Fair, I think it’s the lightest one! 🙂
