Color Range: 6 Shades. 3 of them are for warm undertones and the other 3 are for nuetral undertones. I like that they offer this versatility but since they went down that road I’m not sure why they decided to leave out cool undertones.
- w1-2-3 has more yellow undertones and is the lightest shade in the warm range.
- n1-2-3 has more neutral undertones and is the lightest shade in the neutral range.
Between these two, n1-2-3 is slightly lighter in color and not at all pink or yellow. It blends decently well although not as well as my Maybelline Dream Lumi Touche Concealer. The texture is on the drier side so if you have any dry patches or flakiness this will make it show more. It would work best for those with normal to oily skin types or if used over a moisturizing foundation. It creases almost immediately after application but the creasing does not get worse throughout the day, nor does it melt off. The product is a medium to full coverage concealer and has good (though not excellent) staying power. I prefer to use this on acne scars, blemishes, and areas of redness. I don’t like to use it around my eyes or nose as it accentuates the dryness I can get in those areas.
Packaging: The crayon twists up to reveal more product. If you twist it all the way up, you can still twist it back to the starting position. The image below shows one crayon fully extended so you can see how much product you get. I find the crayon to be a very quick and convenient way to apply concealer. I am not sure I would feel comfortable tossing this in my purse because of the cap. You have to press it down to secure it closed. I’m just not sure how well the cap would stay on jostling around with all the other stuff in my bag.
Smell: It has a somewhat waxy smell but it’s only noticeable if I actively try to smell it.
Application: For maximum coverage I found it best to apply this concealer directly to the area and then use a small fluffy eyeshadow brush to blur and blend around the edges. Using my finger to blend resulted in too sheer coverage no matter how many layers I attempted to put on. On my eye, I could only get medium coverage because the dryness started making it look cakey. It worked best on blemishes and acne scarring.
Pigmentation: Good pigmentation.
Longevity: So long as you don’t accidentally rub it off, it will last all day.
- Medium to full coverage – especially for blemishes and scars
- Lasts all day
- Options for warm and neutral skin tones
- The shape is convenient for quickly and precisely applying concealer to blemishes or acne marks
- Texture is a litte too dry and dull-looking to use around the eyes
- Creases right away
- No option for cooler skin tones
- Considering the price and the overall size of the packaging, there isn’t very much product in the tube
Worth buying? It would be worth it if you are planning on using it to cover up blemishes and acne scarring and like the convenience that stick concealers offer. However, if you are familiar with the True Match Super Blendable Foundations and are expecting the same moisturizing/creamy quality that those have, you might be disappointed and opt to skip these.
