It is concealer and foundation rolled up in a stick form called Full Cover Makeup for the convenience of use along with SPF 30 which is great as we all love multi-tasking products. Comes in a silver retractable stick form, which is very convenient to use and easy to carry. The stick is sturdy and rotates in well. There are three shades available and I have 02 Au natural which matches my skin perfectly and has neutral undertones with good amounts of yellow to suit Indian skin tones. As it comes in a stick form it is very easy to use.The texture feels slightly stiff in the stick but as soon as it comes in the contact with the fingers or skin it gets super creamy and blends in well and feels comfortable on skin. It feels quite moisturising against my combination skin but for winters I will need well moisturised skin for smooth blending. I like to apply it with fingers as I feel it blends in better that way. It has a very natural finish which soon gets dewy. I do set it with some loose powder to keep it matte and in place for long. I haven’t noticed any breakouts with using it regularly. The coverage of Colorbar Makeup Stick is medium to full and highly build able. When blended well it does not look cakey. It conceals any discoloration or acne marks on skin nicely. I was pleasantly surprised to see how well it covered my dark under eye circles almost completely with a bit of layering and I can totally skip a corrector with it, but it tends to crease quite a lot under the eyes within an hour of application and needs to be set well to stay in place. On the rest of the face it wears well and is quite long lasting too. It lasts for about 7-8 hours on my combination skin. It has SPF 30 which is great but it gives slight white cast only in Flash photography. The price is slightly on the higher side for 9 grams of product but little goes a long way.
If you are specifically looking for an under eye concealer then it might not be the best product but it’s perfect for use on rest of the face and conceals pretty well.
I always wanted to but anastasia beverly hills stick foundation but nevwr wanted to dig a hole in my pocket. When I bought this colorbar stick and used it fo first time I was going nuts. How much I loved it. The packqging qas traditional colorbar ailver board one. The actual product was also traditional colorbar silver colored retractable twist up pakaging like a lipstick. It has SPF 30 and retails for INR 675 for 9gms. For thos much product its a bit pricey but its worth it. I bought 002 AU natural. This was for the medium toned people and perfectly matched my skin. I tried it on a hot day and it behaved all day perfectly. It doent budge at all. Though i did use primer and compact for setting. It also controlled oil as claimed. It gives medium coverage but you can built up more withhout looking cakey. Overall I loved it.
