Today’s post is about my go to concealer these days. Even though I have the most amazing Clinique all about eyes concealer with me, I ignore applying it on my dark circles most of the time. :/ I know it looks horrible in the pictures but I still don’t feel like applying it out of sheer laziness. 🙁 That is the reason I was searching for a concealer that would not take much of my time and is super easy to use. Much better if it can be doubled up as a spot corrector. O:) I told you I am lazy. :/ My search finally ended with this Instant coverup stick from Colorbar. It conceals my dark circles well and at the same time covers the recent marks my break outs left me with.
Price: INR 425/-
What Colorbar Says:
Instant cover up stick gives excellent coverage to instantly cover all blemishes, spots, dark circles & gives a natural finish. Handy to carry & can be used as instant corrector for quick touch ups. Easy to apply, blend quickly, doesn’t smudge and non-greasy adheres to skin for long time. Very soothing, extremely calming for skin and contains anti oxidant to help in fighting free radicals & prevents pre mature aging.
The shade I have with me is “Almond Coffee 003”. It is a perfect match to my medium-fair skin tone. It has enough yellow and at the same time is not too yellow for my skin which has mixed undertones. Clinique concealer is too yellow for my skin color so I could never use it on my spots without mixing it with a foundation. this however makes it pretty simple for me. 🙂
The packaging is of fat pencil type. You have to apply it directly under your eyes and the spots you want to conceal and it takes just a minute at the maximum.
The texture is really creamy which is too good to be coming from a pencil type concealer. usually pencil concealers are a bit hard to touch. But this one is soft as a butter.Blending it does not require any kind of special expertise. you just need to dab it with your finger and its done. 😀 The coverage it gives is medium. you can build it up but not to full coverage. So be aware that it is not for the heavy duty concealing required in major dark spots or big angry red zits. i don’t think I need to explain you more as the pictures are going to speak for them selves.
On my Dark circles!
On my pimple marks!
You can still see the marks but the intensity is minimised and with a foundation this covers them up really really well! 🙂
Some people have blue-green veins showing through their under eye skin. This below demo is for them to show how it coves up the blue-green patches! 🙂
I hope you got, how good this magic wand is. 🙂 I absolutely love it for the same and I don’t think I will ever go back to liquid concealer again.Err may be for special occasions when I need heavy concealing. Otherwise this works wonderfully well for me. <3
My Rating: 4.8 out of 5 (.2 for wastage during sharpening 😛 )
My Recommendation: This is a boon for lazy bones like me. No need of precise application. No need to blend it on and on for that flawless finish. just few pats on the spot and it is done. The price is also quite attractive If I compare with the quality and quantity. 😀 A must have for working ladies who usually have to rush to work every morning, and also for the lazy souls who think concealing is too much work . 😛
