What’s your favorite beauty product? I asked.

NARS concealer, my friend’s daughter replied. You can use it for everything, she said.

This is a new one on me, I thought. Could this be the next great find for 25 Days of YouBeauty Christmas? I went looking for reviews.

My friend’s daughter hit it spot on. Critics are rapturous. Gotta try this one, I thought.

In addition to very effectively disguising under eye circles and redness from breakouts, NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer makes an excellent primer for lips and eyelids, reviewers say. The fragrance-free concealer offers medium to full coverage, and you can sheer it out and still have a very effective long wearing coverage.

The creamy liquid goes on easily and blends well. The texture is thin, so you don’t have to worry about this liquid concealer clogging up in lines and wrinkles around your eyes.

The formula is ideal for skin types from oily to combination, and it comes in a wide range of highly pigmented, vibrant shades from fair to dark.

A little NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer goes a long way to give you the amount of coverage you want.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer costs $29 for .22 fluid ounces at Sephora and Amazon.

Now, you know I love a bargain. And I’m really getting into this whole reviewing thing. So let me add a second option to my friend’s daughter’s recommendation.

Maybelline New York! Fit Me Concealer has a light texture that offers sheer coverage for mild dark circles and discolorations. The soft matte finish appears skin like. Maybelline New York Fit Me! Concealer comes in six shades, applies effortlessly and blends easily.

What’s not to love? Well, apparently the coverage is too light to be effective on really dark or red problem areas, according to some reviewers.

What is to love? The price for .23 fluid ounces of Maybelline New York Fit Me! Concealer ranges between $3.79 at Target, $4.38 and $5.48 at Walmart, $7.29 at Walgreens and $7.81 and $9.81 on Amazon.

Holiday merriment can mean very little sleep for many of us. Don’t let someone you love suffer from dark, under eye circles this season. Give the gift of a great concealer.
