Today, I am going to review a makeup product which is a combination of both, a foundation as well as a conealer which on application blends so beautifully and provides smooth and natural finish.
Actually, the product itself comes is a makeup concealer stick which comes in a lipstick like packaging in a silver colored see through casing. Here is a complete review in detail.
Shades Available :
- 01 Fresh Ivory.
- 02 Au Natural.I purcahsed the Au Natural Shade as I am blessed with medium skin tone.
- 03 Warm Beige.
A lightweight, creamy, concealer plus foundation that provides smooth and natural finish. This emollient based make up stick is so concentrated that a tiny amount can provide complete coverage.
Bees Wax, Carnauba Wax, Candelillia Wax, Hydrogenated Poly Isobutane, Octyl Methoxy Cinnamate, Butyl Stearate, Phenyl Trimethicone, Dimethicone, Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter, Tocopheryl Acetate, Stearic Acid, Micro Talc, Collodial Silicon Dioxide, Butylated Hydroxy Toluene, Phenonip M, Perfume, Pigments.
How To Apply :
- The best way to apply this product is with fingertips as it will warm up the product before application .
- Pat lightly onto the places where you need to cover and slowly blend the edges away for a smooth finish.
- In a rush, small strokes with fingertips will also do the trick.
- Can also be applied with a firm brush or latex sponge.
It is packed in a silver colored cardboard packaging which has the ingredients, directions, features, shade name all clearly mentioned on it. From inside, it comes in a retractable transparent tube with a twisted mechanism just like a lipstick packaging and the silver cap shuts with a click sound. The concealer shade is given on the upside down part of the tube. The weight of the tube is somewhat on the higher side when compared to lipsticks but that bulky, and so this can be easily fit in a bag, and so handy to travel with whenever one needs to touch up.
Texture & Coverage :
The texture is very creamy that it blends so effortlessly and seemlessly, glides on just like butter. One just need to open and the twist the tube to extract some product like lipstick and then directly swipe the stick all over the face when you want to use as a foundation and then blend it with the fingers. One may use the damp sponge with patting motions to blend instead of fingers. But, I love the fingers with this concealer cum foundation product the best. It does not leave my skin patchy or streaky on application.
Dry skin people would need to apply a moisturiser before applying this whereas oily skin people would need to apply primer before its application and a compact over it for oil control.
The coverage it provides is medium which can be easily build up to get full coverage with a second coat of the concealer. It blends easily in second coat and thus provides full coverage. In case, one has so much imperfections, then this product is not for you guys.
My Experience with Colorbar Full Cover Makeup Stick Au Natural Shade :
I tried this Colorbar Full Cover Makeup Stick Concealer for the first time in a hot summer day, sometime, may be in mid of June or July as I remember, when the hot weather is on its peak and I went to market after applying it all over my face without any primer or any moisturiser as I have oily skin that time. I did not set it with powder too as I was in hurry. I just blend it with my fingers. It was about 11am in the morning and after shopping when I reached home, it was about 5pm and I had a little shine on my T-Zone but there was no fading at all. The shade exactly matched my skin complexion at that time. Also, I stayed there with a little fading for more 2-3 hours i.e. a total of 6-7 hours. I was impressed with the coverage and the wear time of this concealer. Also, it doesn`t feel heavy on the skin.
Pros Of Colorbar Full Cover Makeup Stick Au Natural Shade :
- Conealer Plus Foundation Two In One.
- Glides On Smoothly, Blends Effortlessly.
- Jojoba Oil And Shea Butter For Moisturizing Benefits.
- Vitamin E For Nourishment, Anti Aging & Anti-Oxidant Benefits.

- Water Resistant.

Cons Of Colorbar Full Cover Makeup Stick Au Natural Shade :
Dry skinned people would need to properly moisturise their skin before using this otherwise it may lead to patchy skin specially under eye area.
Final Verdict :
An easy to go product which comes as a combination of two base makeup products i.e. foundation and concealer, into one. The retractable lipstick like packaging is so classy and and it is great for touch ups while travelling. The texture is very creamy and it blends into skin so easily. It controls oiliness in a hot summer day for more than 7-8 hours and which can be easily enhanced with a compact over it. No need to apply sunscreen as it has spf 30. The skin feels like second skin and never feel patchiness.
