NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
Covering up blemishes, dark circles, and other imperfections can go one of two ways: You'll either end up with a silky smooth and flawless complexion, or you'll be left with your product settling into fine lines and clinging onto dry skin, making what you were trying to hide even more noticeable than before. This concealer blends, firms, covers, and reduces redness, all while keeping your skin moisturized and radiant.

The fact that this lipstick is long-lasting is definitely a perk, but the thing you'll love most is its 3D glow pigments, which create the illusion of fuller lips. Pucker up!
