I like essence’s coverstick concealer, and I reviewed it a few months ago. I found it to be as effective as my Stila stick concealer at covering up my dark spots but at a much lower price.
Recently I rediscovered the essence match2cover concealer compact in my makeup stash unused, since I got it a couple of months ago. I had forgotten about it. So now I was curious about the essence match2cover! cream concealer duo. It’s a simple little case with two concealer shades, a light and a medium shade. Initially, I wasn’t sure what the difference between the stick and the duo was.
For me, the match2cover concealer was just great for hiding the shadows under my eyes. I didn’t realize how bad they were until recently. I guess my skin is thinning, and the shadows are more prevalent. I tried covering them up with BB cream, but that irritated the skin under my eyes. Some time ago, I tried the essence concealer stick, but it was too heavy for under my eyes and it pulled the skin a bit. The light shade of the concealer cream is a little too light and the medium is a little too dark. What’s nice about the two shades is you can mix them to suit your own skin tone.
I also like the fact that the concealer is very lightweight, but I find it provides enough coverage. It goes on smoothly, is easy to apply with my finger, and I didn’t have any problems with creasing.
