PACKAGING:The concealer stick has a lipstick style packaging having a transparent cap and metallic grey body.You have to twist up to use the concealer.It is easy to use and travel friendly.

SHADE:I chose the shade medium.Somehow,I haven’t yet understood the numbering pattern of concealer as only 2 shades were available and this is marked as 3.Quite Strange!!!Whatsoever,I basically got this for everyday use and the shade is an absolute match for my NC 35-37 skin tone.

MY VIEWS: The concealer has a creamy texture that is easy to apply and blend.I don’t need to blend blend blend under my eyes to make it look even which is a major plus point as I don’t like too much pulling and tugging my under eye area.It is the most sensitive and while doing this,it increases the chances of making the under eye area looser.

The formula is hydrating and moisturizing.The creamy texture leafs to fading and creasing in humid climate so I top it with a compact to keep the under eye area  fresh.As per covering blemishes and acne,this concealer is too light.It provides just enough coverage light under eye circles and helping to even out the skin tone as it provides sheer to build able medium coverage.It brightens up my under eye area to some extent.The concealer does provide a white cast on application and can cake it over applied so I suggest not over boarding it.After sometime,the white cast disappears as the concealer adapts the skin tone.It is heavily fragrance which is a mix of vanilla and some other thing that I can’t detect properly.The concealer has SPF 20.

The staying power is around 3-4 hours.It doesn’t melt but starts fading a little bit as the formula is very creamy.It doesn’t provide matte finish but dewy kinds which can be turned to matte with a swirl of compact/finishing powder.

RATING: 3.9/5

RECOMMENDATION: I like the overall effect of the concealer only for everyday usage as it evens out my skin and under eye circles but it has a low wear time and can look cakey if over applied while providing sheer o medium coverage.
