This is a matte full coverage concealer and a little bit of product goes a long way. I like blending it with a damp beauty blender to help spread the product evenly. I use a brush sometimes but it can get a little streaky. If you like the other Nars concealers then definitely try this one! It stays matte and in place. If you have dry skin then definitely moisturize a little more when applying to drier areas of the face. If you have oily to combination skin then this will be fine on its own even without a primer.
