Colorbar Full Cover Concealer (Rs 495 for 5g) available at myntra.comShade – I choose the second shade out of the 6 shades. It is an exact match and provides natural look. Creamy natural has slight yellow undertones. The lightest shade had pink undertones.
Packaging – Colorbar Full Cover concealer is enclosed in a small tub packaging having a metallic silver cap. It is sturdy and travel friendly but I find this kind of packaging very inconvenient and unhygienic to use. The shade number and name are provided at the bottom.Texture & Formula – The texture of the concealer is quite thick though it is smooth and creamy. It isn’t overly creamy leading to a cakey finish but comfortable enough for blending out the concealer gently under the eye area and other areas where it is needed.
The formula is great for those having oily/combination skin as it claims to be oil free. It has vitamin E providing anti-ageing benefits. Also, presence of spf 25 is an added boon. It gives a matte finish on application which becomes semi-matte after few hours.
Pigmentation/Coverage – The product claims to be providing full coverage. However, I feel that this concealer is best for those who need light to medium coverage. I have used Colorbar stick concealer and it has more coverage than this. It will definitely hide under eye circles and blemishes giving an evened out look but major dark circles cannot be concealed with this. I has very faint, undetectable fragrance.
Staying Power – The concealer stays for about 5-6 hours without getting grey or fading. However, it soon transforms to a semi-matte finish.
Ease of Application – I have used this concealer with a bush as well as with fingers and I find that it applies easily and blends better with fingers as the texture is not buttery creamy.
I am not highly impressed by Colorbar Full Cover Concealer . It is more suited for those having minor skin unevenness or light under eye circles as it provides medium coverage. Also, it provides semi-matte finish after few hours of application which can look oily on oily skin types.
The packaging, though being travel friendly, easy to store and sturdy, is unhygienic and inconvenient to use as it is very small and fingers have to be used to take out the product.
The shade 02 is a perfect match for me and I mostly resort to this concealer when I have minor dark circles. I has spf 25 and blends easily with fingers.
