Too Faced Born This Way Concealer

Here's my video with demo/review and comparison with NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer:
This concealer launched today on Too Faced website. It retails for $28 USD ($32 CAD) and contains 0.23 oz of product. It should be available at Sephora in July.

Packaging
The packaging is very similar to Born This Way Foundation, which I absolutely love. I have it in shade Golden and it's a great coverage foundation that looks natural.

It comes with a doe foot applicator and it's flexible.

Shades
There are 12 shades: 

  1. Very Fair - Pale with pink undertones
  2. Fair - Light with pink undertones
  3. Light - With golden undertones
  4. Light Medium - Medium with peach undertones
  5. Medium - Tan with golden undertones
  6. Medium Tan - With pink undertones
  7. Tan - With golden undertones
  8. Deep Tan - With Golden undertones
  9. Dark - With Golden undertones
  10. Deep - With pink undertones
I wanted a shade that can be used to highlight, so I went with Medium. It worked out pretty well for my deep skin tone. For shade reference, I'm NC40-NC42 in MAC. 
Swatch of shade Medium 
Shade ReferenceI don't own any MAC foundation but I should be around NC40-NC42 in MAC. 
Here are some of the foundations that match me well:

Review  
It's creamy, lightweight and gives a radiant finish but I just wish it provided a better coverage. I was expecting it to be like Born This Way Foundation, which gives me a good coverage but it didn't. It's easy to blend but it doesn't look natural. I applied it under my eye area and I was able to tell where I applied it. 

Pros 
  • Creamy
  • Lightweight
  • Natural
  • Radiant
  • Smells like coconut
Cons
  • Doesn't provide that much coverage

Too Faced vs NARS 
I decided to compare NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer ($29/0.22 oz) with Too Faced Born This Way Concealer ($28/0.23 oz). Both of them come with doe foot applicators but Too Faced Concealer applicator is more flexible, while NARS applicator is more stiff. 
Here are swatches of NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer - Ginger and Too Faced Born This Way Concealer - Medium.
 
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is more opaque and has a better coverage than Too Faced concealer. I personally prefer NARS concealer because I like the coverage but it's not as lightweight and radiant as Too Faced Concealer.
