Essence Cosmetics | Cover Stick Review, Swatch & Try On

Happy Tuesday! I think that this is now turning into concealer week as this is my second post this week reviewing a concealer and tomorrow I have another one.  Today I bring you the Essence Coverstick concealer, let us see what it has in store for us. 
I will begin with the packaging it comes in a shallow card box case, which has a cream colour and it twists up just like a lipstick. It is really light weight, but don’t tempt fate by dropping it. The Essence Coverstick Concealer is really thick (please hear me on this one) When you do a swatch on the skin without any primer then it won’t glide well, but on the picture below I have on a primer and ooh boy where has this concealer been all my life.  The application is easy because the concealer is on a stick. I prefer using a beauty blender with the concealer for blending process to be easy.

The Essence Coverstick Concealer gives you a good medium coverage if you have dark circles like me. The concealer doesn’t crease because it has a matte finish which I love. The concealer lasts for a good 5 – 6 hours, make sure you use a primer that is oil based if you have dry skin like me, and if you have oily skin it should be fine. 
Shop : HERE
Price: 5/5
R43.00 who would dispute that?

Packaging: 3/5
The lipstick form is great but the concealer is thicker than your normal lipstick so the twisting component might break before you finish your concealer

Repurchase: Yes
Overall: 4/5

  1. Thanks for the review, I never look at Essence face products because they seem to only cater for those with paler skins. So I didn't even know that this concealer existed, I will check for it next time I'm at Clicks.

    1. I always thought that as well Lungi but I was impressed by the way that concealer applied and looked on my skin.
