Hello sweeties , Today it’s concealer time! Enough of lippies lets talk about a stick which is capable to cover my eye circle effectively. Today I am going to review on Colorbar Concealer Stick in Shade-01 “Apricot Crush”.
What company claims: Colorbar Instant Cover-up Stick is enriched with vitamin C and chamolime.It is creamy and soft with high color. It is very easy to apply and perfect for concealing under eye circles. Benefits Easy to apply Provides medium full coverage Enriched with chamomile and vitamin C Super creamy formula. Handy for instant concealing Does not harm or irritate when used over breakouts Great for concealing under eye circles because of warm/yellow undertone.
Available shades: Apricot Crush 001 Almond, Caramel Treat 002, and Almond Coffee 003.
Price: 425 INR for 1.6 gm.
Colorbar newly launched full coverage concealer jar which is 50 bucks more than this one. I don’t have dark circles under my eyes *touchwood* but have dark spots on my face. I prefer using this stick variant over full coverage. The fact is pretty much clear that I just want to even out my eye area and highlight my brow bone area. It has been always advised to use concealer one shade lighter than you actual skin tone. But what I feel concealer to highlight need one–two shade lighter but to even out patches or acne marks or zits or anytime of uneven and discoloration you have to have check your proper match.
I tried both shades : Apricot Crush 001 Almond, Caramel Treat 002. 001 to highlight the area I want to highlight i.e. my brow bone area or sometimes under eyes as well. 002 – Sometimes when gods gift me some dry rashes around my dry parched cheek and chin. The concealer as you can see it’s like fat chubby stick which I feel is very convenient to apply directly where needed. The only drawback is that it needs to be sharpened which leads to too much wastage.
The texture is creamy but not that creamy to skip moisturizer below it. So dry skin ladies must prep before applying as it can accentuate dry patches. It gives light to medium coverage. Those who have heavy under eye dark circle and lots of acne scars may need something which gives heavy coverage. I find it good for oily skin as it does not crease, stay put for almost 5-6 hours and blend into skin within a minute.
I often use my concealer brush to blend or my ring finger in dab dab motion and you are done! I do recommend to try colorbar concealer stick those who need light coverage.
Good for both dry and oily skin. Only that dry skin need to moisturize well before using it. I like the look quite like chubby stick and very hygienic. The texture is feels light on skin and blends really well.
Final Words: Decent staying power, Very travel friendly and light weight stick will fit in pocket easily
