This is a very basic coverstick. My shade is the "neutralizer" It is yellow toned and very light. Looks chastly even on my NC 15 skintone. It does not cover enough and it creases. Would probably be better as a stick foundation if it did not cause me any breakouts. For those who can get Collection 2000 I recommend their wand concealer ahead this because that one covers way better and does stay on. Also I think Max Factor panstick has a better coverage than this one. I cant detect any fragrance, like Covergirl Cheekers do have.
This concealer does a great job of lightening my dark circles. For me, it doesn't work well for blemishes because I have dry skin, and this makes my skin drier. It'll occasionally dry out my under eye area as well. Although I really like it, I think I'll look for a concealer that's a little less drying.
I used this concealer a lot through high school because my mom used the same one and she swore by it.
But it isn't for me.
Although ther stick lasts a long time and retains its moisture content well, it is just too waxy for my liking. It always got caught in the creases of my eyes, and made my oily t-zone even more slick.
I would recomend this concealer for maybe drier, or more mature skin who would benefit from the thick formula. I personally prefer a more pigmented, less slick option for my skin type.
I was really disappointed, because everyone loved this concealer but me! :'( Maybe it was too light? I really don't know...it just went really deep into my fine lines in my eye bags, and it went on really white. I even had primer...Good luck to any one who buys this, hopefully it works good for you. If your a picky girl, with intense eye bags, its not worth it.
I use this in Fair, for covering up any red marks or blemishes on my face, but not around my eyes since I also have CG's Invisible concealer, and that works well for around my eyes (but it's not great for covering blemishes). I love how smooth and creamy this is while managing to not be greasy, but all the shades besides "neutralizer" are too salmon colored. Since I use so little of this, the shade doesn't really matter, and the coverage is opaque enough, that it conceals what I need it to. One tube will last me forever, so I doubt I'd NEED to repurchase..but I WOULD if I ever run out :-)
I use the fair shade of this to cover dark circles which it does well. My only complaints are that it requires 2-3 touch ups depending on the length of wear and after carrying it in my purse the cap begins to crack. I don't use this to cover blemishes because the waxes and thickeners used to make this lipstick shaped can clog pores and make breakouts worse. I use this with the fair shade of covergirl BB cream and the colors blend well.
This concealer is amazing! I have a lot of acne red marks and this is great for covering up redness. I apply this lightly over my scars and then apply my smoothers powder (which is also great) and my skin looks flawless! It doesnt break me out either.Just be careful because if you put too much on it could become cakey. Otherwise the whole line of smoothers products is wonderful! Definitely will repurchase
I bought this concealer in green. I have horrible redness around my nose and cheecks. Not to mention these huge red zits that pop up randomly. I put this wherever I need to hide the redness. I don't even need to use a foundation with this! It completly gets rid of redness. I have never been in love so much with this product. It blends super quick and easily, which is good when I have only a few minutes to put on makeup in the mornings. I put a skin colored concealer and powder over top this and it looks amazing. I'm just totally impressed with this color. I usually try to avoid colored concealers in the first place, but then I started breaking out really bad (I found out my sister was using my brushes and used makeup sponges...gross)! This solves all my problems. Thank you so much covergirl!
This stuff is AMAAAAZING! I have sensitive skin, and this stuff has been through the ups and downs of my skin as a teenager. It's creamy and long lasting with great coverage. I buy medium, and the color blends in amazingly in my skin. I do have pale tan skin, with strong yellow undertones...not a very usual color, but this cover-up is my color.
A tube of this will last me for months, and I love how portable it is. I don't even use foundation. Just a dab of this stuff around my nose, under my eyes, and a bit of my chin and I'm ready to set it with powder.
For me, this is perfection.
I had given up on concealers as they were all to dark or too yellow and none of them really stayed in place or concealed anything. Until now.
About me. I have NC 10 skin with pink undertones, small pores, clear complexion and hardly any lines in my mature skin. Good genes. However, I have pink undertones and red around my nose and some light grey under eye smudges that need brightening up.
thanks to you guys, I bought this product in neutralizer and illuminizer. Wow!! Neuralizer covers the red, blends in perfectly with my skin tone and lasts until I take it off. Does not move, twitch or travel. I use the illuminizer (beige/pink shade) under my eyes and again with the "wow". Makes be look 10 years younger and flawless. I'm not kidding you. I haven't been so excited about any kind of makeup in a long time but these little tubes really do the trick.
I dab a little on in the areas I want covered and then use a small eyeshadow brush to blend. I use no foundation generally but a little powder on the nose and to even out things. I look photoshopped.
Like the packaging, paid $8.95 Cdn for each tube, and will definitely keep purchasing. Thank you ladies.
