Colorbar Instant Coverup Stick is available in only 3 shades- Apricot Crush 001, Caramel Treat 002 and Almond Coffee 002 so some people may not find the shade that works for them. I got Apricot Crush- the lightest shade for me and it perfectly matched with my skin tone. These sticks are easily available at Colorbar counters or at online shopping websites.
Colorbar Instant Coverup Stick comes in a cute, small, chubby pencil form just like Elle 18 Eye Sparklers. The packaging is sturdy, travel friendly and super easy to use.
The consistency of the concealer is soft, creamy (though not melting types) and perfect. It is neither very thick nor very thin. It goes on smoothly and blends very well. The texture is quite light so the concealer gets spread easily with minimum finger effort. The coverage of the concealer is excellent. It provides medium to full coverage. Even if you layer it up it won’t make you look cakey. The finish is natural and looks like you have nothing on. Since it is in pencil form I apply it directly on my skin and then blend it with fingers and I am really happy with the results. It needs to be sharpened after few application which leads to wastage of product (the pencil itself is quite small ). I usually apply this concealer post foundation application to achieve better results and then set it with powder. It doesn’t settle into fine lines. It does a great job in covering my under eye dark circles and other imperfections (post acne scars ) completely without making it look unnatural or cakey. It stays put on my skin for a good 6-7 hours without creasing or settling in fine lines if I set it with powder (I have slightly oily lids and an oily skin). I have been using it for quite a few months but had never experienced any irritation or breakouts while using it.
