Natural Collection Cover Up Stick Review

My mum sent me this concealer as part of last weeks parcel, I've been using it all week, so now I can give my thoughts :) It's the Natural Collection Cover Up Stick, mine is in the shade 'Fair'.



Firstly I like the packaging, it's not overly pretty or girly (which I usually like), but it's sleek, compact and simple. It's really easy to take in your bag for on the go touch ups.



For the product itself I think it's a good daytime, casual concealer. I found the coverage isn't quite enough to cover up my monsters of dark undereye circles, but it does brighten the area and make them seem less awful. It's really good a covering blemishes I've found, the texture is slightly creamy, so it's easy to blend.



However I have found that I can't use it too much on dry areas, but I have this problem with a lot of products (the skin between and slightly above my eyebrows is always like this > . <) so I can't blame this one for having the same issue. Also I do have to reapply it whenever I wear it alone without primer, but it's not that much effort to add a bit more :P

Pricewise this is amazing, £1.99 each. That's hardly anything, I buy more expensive sandwiches :P

Overall I really like this, I'd use one of my other concealers for nights out though, for when I need better staying power and more coverage. But for general day to day wear I've been loving this concealer all this week.

Side note : I walked to my tutorial in the wind and rain today (40 minutes there and back > . <) when I got back my hair was SO big and fluffy :P I have to admit it was quite fun walking in the wind with my hair blowing out all around me :P I felt like a slightly soggy supermodel XD

  2. I don't think I've seen this brand in the states before. Looks very nice. :D
    I have the same problem...The area slightly above my eyebrows seems to get dry really fast, but my forehead usually breaks out. ._. The life of combination skin is not an easy one...
    Your hair is very nice! ^_^

  3. I have exactly the same problem, the skin between my eyebrows is always so dry, so frustrating! This product sounds interesting though - at such a good price it's definitely worth a try! x

  10. I found this concealer just too cakey on my dry skin, unfortunately.
    Some of the Boots Natural Collection is great though. If you have a good scout around the counter they often have some great eye shadows with fantastic colour pay off. Not bad at all to say everything is £1.99! :)

  13. Wow, sounds great for the price. I normally HATE cover up sticks though as they are quite hard, go cakey on the skin and seem to pressure the skin under my eyes more than I'd like. Though to be honest, I haven't used one in years so maybe my issues were down to lack of experience.
