Essence Coverstick 50 Matt Caramel

Loving this!!!!! I do wish though that the lipstick design will improve as my wand broke however I love the coverage I get. My acne pores get covered and I look smooth as I apply the foundation. Definitely a keeper plus its affordable.

Essence CoverStick :)

I decided to try this product out a few months ago, and bought it purely because of the low price and because I really love Essence items! I found mine at Pharmacy City.

I got the stick in 01 Matt Sand, which I think is the lightest shade*
I was disappointed as the lightest shade was too dark for me. I have quite pale/porcelain skin, and it didn't work very well for my skin tone.

The consistency is smooth yet quite thick, but it applies quite easily with your fingertips (The heat from your fingers melts it down slightly and helps it to blend*)

The coverage is quite good for a stick, and I feel it would work quite well along with a colour corrector*

I do like this product, and would recommend it, however, I am personally not a fan as their lightest shade is too dark*

What a surprise!

I purchased this product last week out of sheer desperation to find a proper concealer which worked for me. All the highly recommended products out there did squat for me personally and I was never really impressed. This was so affordable and the shade selection looked right. I got it in 01 Matt Sand. I have always used my concealers as eyeshadow bases/primers as it works really well but they tend to make my lids oily every now and then.

This product has blown me out of the water. I use it for cover-ups of fine marks, pimples, pigmentation etc. and it blends in perfectly into my foundation. I use it as my under eye concealer which is what I am most impressed with as it does not crease ever and the colour isn't this unnatural yellow/orange toned goop that doesn't really cover much. Then I have noticed that since I started using it as an eyeshadow base, my eyeshadows have been staying on for much longer than usual, even the shimmery ones. This product blends so easily, it's crazy!

When I want to go for a "no makeup" makeup look, I just put some of this on my lid and it cancels out all veins and discoloration. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product and want to buy the darker shades to use for contouring as I am still a beginner with contouring and need a product I can trust.

Cover & Contour Magic

As with all Essence's other product this one does not disappoint either! Since I'm a big Contour- loving girl and love to do contour everyday I started using the darker shade for that and it works just great! I blends beautifully with any foundation without being muddy or patchy.

Its nice and creamy without being sticky like a lot of other brands I tried.

Sorry guys I know all my reviews on Essence product are "Its all Amazing", but I have yet to find a Essence product that I don't absolutely love, and trust me I've got a huge collection.

Love love love

This is ine product I cant live without! Ive been using this for atleast 4 years, its great for covering red spots or other marks on your face wich isnt fully hidden by your foundation! I always have my coverstick with me where ever I go! It is really easy to use and you can apply the stick straight to your face without having to get your handa dirty! The price is really great considering the quality of the product! I definitely recommend this to each and every lady out there!

Essence Coverstick

When i received the new cover stick by essence, i was actually really excited - when i opened it, i loved the texture, and the versatility of it. Its an easy on the go kind of product. But when i applied it to my skin - i didn't quite feel as if it works for me. On the areas that i applied it, it felt dry, and it didn't give off a natural matte look. I was a bit dissapointed.

Essence Cover stick

Lately this has become such an obsession for me . With the cold harsh weather daily it has definitely affected my skin and caused a lot of breakouts and marks on my face .
This has become apart of my everyday routine as it blend seamlessly into my skin and blends out with my foundation hiding just about every mark .

The product looks almost like a lipstick and has a creamy texture which is so easy to blend . It gives me a smooth flawless finish .

Towards the end of the day it does tend to fade away but I did notice when i set my make up with a setting spray it lasts a bit longer .

essence Coverstick

I am not going to lie, I am not a fan of stick concealers. I just find them thick and heavy and a nightmare to blend. That all changed when I met the essence Coverstick.

essence as many of you know released a new range of beauty products specifically formulated for women of colour. This range has been trending on social media with the tag, #LoveYourShade.

I tried out the essence coverstick for a few weeks and here are my thoughts.

I tried that shade matt caramel, which is shade number 50. When I first speared it onto my fingers I was surprised at how creamy and smooth the consistency of the stick was. Since it is a stick formula I thought it would be best to avoid my eye area and try and conceal my dark spots around my lips, nose and on my cheeks.

I added a bit of product to my troubled areas and I was able to blend it in easily using the warmth from my fingers. I love beauty sponges and beauty bullets but I honestly just prefer using my fingers when blending in my concealer. Once blended it provided a light coverage that settled into a matte finish. I was quite impressed with how easy it was to blend it and I decided to build up the coverage in certain areas that were darker than others.

An important point to note is the fact that this concealer contains Allantoin in the ingredients list. Allantoin is used to ensure that the concealer is an anti-irritant as well as being a skin protector, This is particularly good for those with sensitive skin or acne prone skin.

My favourite part about this product is the fact that it is dermatologically tested as well as animal cruelty-free! Well done essence on still maintaining such an impressive status.

The design of this product was done in a manner to resemble a lipstick. This is excellent for travelling, which is why I keep it in my handbag to use as my everyday touch up concealer.

Essence Coverstick

This coverstick used to be my favourite concealer. At first, it was great as it matched my skin tone and covered up dark spots and blemishes. I used to use it under my foundation to decrease the amount of foundation I used.

It is quite creamy in texture and applies well. It also blends quite well, especially when used with a beauty blender. Recently, however, I do not use it because it's too dark for my skin tone (my skin tone lightened in recent months).

When it is first applied, it is great. After a while, it starts to become a lot more orangey. If you have large pores, this may not be the best option and pores definitely show after applying this product. It also creased and settled into the fine lines under my eyes. After a couple of hours, I would have to 'wipe' my undereye area because it creased so much. So I suggest using a really good setting powder after application.

This may work for someone else - perhaps with a darker skin tone or a different skin type (I have oily skin). However, it's a good product for the price and provides really good coverage.
