Colorbar Instant Coverup Stick Concealer Review


Hi everyone,

The day Rati did a post on re launch of colorbar concealers, I was sure I had to get this. πŸ™‚ Firstly because I had seen/heard such great reviews about colorbar concealers, secondly I am already using its triple act compact for base makeup and love that too… check my review HERE

The official colorbar site has no updates about this product. So, here’s what the package says

  • Β Chamomile for soothing and vitamin c for anti oxidant benefits
  • Β Soft and creamy with high color payoff
  • Β Handy for instant concealing.

The packaging of the concealer is typical of colorbar products. Β SILVER/GREY . πŸ™‚

This concealer comes in a chubby stick type pencil – reminds me of NYX jumbo pencils ☺ I like the whole idea of a concealer in a pencil form, looks cute and is uber convenient to use.

Price: Rs 425 for 1.6 gm

They have launched 3 shades in the concealers:
001 Apricot Crush – light
002 Caramel Treat – Medium
003 Almond Coffee – Dark

The shade that I got is 001 Apricot crush- light . πŸ™‚

When I use this concealer with my colorbar triple act compact, the overall result is awesome. The shades of both the products are complimentary and merge in well nicely.

With colorbar concealer


This colorbar concealer is an excellent product in my opinion. I have used it just 3 times till date and I am all for it πŸ˜€ , No wonder, this concealer is highly recommended by so many makeup lovers.

The formula is indeed very creamy; would sound like a clichΓ© but it does blend in like a dream into the skin without much effort. I like the change in the packaging from its retractable stick form to this pencil form making the concealer very handy, convenient to use and apt for spot concealing. Hence, the name- instant cover-up stick πŸ˜€

The new packaging also scores over jar type concealers in terms of hygiene.

Ok, I just dot this for concealing my under eye dark circles, some post acne scars and corners of my lips & nose and gently pat and blend in the concealer with my ring finger. I always preferred to conceal before applying my base makeup but I have noticed that concealing after applying your foundation gives a little better result.

Coming to its coverage, I would say this provides medium-full coverage depending upon how you use it . πŸ™‚

I used the concealer also to cover some of my fresh breakouts πŸ˜› and it didn’t irritate them . The staying power of the concealer is about 3-4 hours, after which it may start melting off due to its creamy consistency. If you have extremely oily skin I would suggest setting this with some loose powder . πŸ™‚

Overall, it’s a great product for your vanity in an equally nice new avatar (packaging) πŸ˜› πŸ˜€ (I can’t really compare this from its previous form in terms of quality as I have not used that.)


β€’ Super creamy formula blends in without much effort.
β€’ Ease of application being pencil form.
β€’ Very travel friendly, handy and apt for spot concealing.
β€’ Being pencil form, the tip has to be sharpened off after a few applications, which is good keeping the hygiene perspective in mind.
β€’ Great for concealing under eye dark circles because of the yellow/warm undertone.
β€’ Does not irritate or harm when used over break outs.
β€’ Provides medium-full coverage.


β€’ The formula being super creamy, may melt down soon in hot and humid conditions or if you have really oily skin
β€’ Is a little expensive Β πŸ™ @ INR 425
β€’ With Just 3 shades available, it may not fit well with some shin tones.
β€’ I didn’t feel any soothing effect as per its claims.
β€’ Sharpening leads to product wastage 😐
β€’ Availability is an issue; I rarely come across colorbar counters.

IMBB RATING- 3.75 ON 5 :-* :-* :-* _ 0.75

  10. hi all ………
    normally we apply concealer before foundation .. :woot:
    is it fine to apply concealer after foundation ??? :stars:
    rati ur basic foundation tutorial video is not working ………. i cant see it
    :nababana: HELP………………

    1. shruti i guess youtube deleted it coz of some music copyright. :(( you may check my photo tutes. πŸ˜€ I did 2-2 foundation tutorials. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      yeah apply concealer after foundation only. πŸ™‚

    2. hi shruti, either ways u can do, apply concealer before or after foundation, but i have noticed dat after applying foundation , if u apply concealer, the result is better πŸ™‚

      1. thnxs nupur ………….gr8 review
        i thnk u r rite … i wll do the same way bcoz when i apply foundation after concealer …….concealer effect will go :waaa:
        and dark circle will cum back ….so i think applying concealer after the foundation is the best

  11. Your eyes with blue liner are looking so pretty! And very aptly demonstrated the effect of this concealer. I’ll give this a try I think (If i can find it in stock!)..just a little apprehensive abt the shade matching though πŸ˜›

    1. thnku ankita πŸ™‚ :teddy: :teddy:
      waise naa, its purple wala liner, but like ur cam, my cam wont show the right colours πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

  12. I think my eyes look more like your before pic most of the time! Love how creamy this is, didnt think it would be when I saw that it was a pencil.

  13. nice reveiw nupur… :waytogo:
    sounds like a good product.. Next on my list.. Abhi loreal Ka concealer chal raha hai.. Wud Tk some time to finish :pan:

  14. hey al…i uregntly need a good full coverage concealer.which one wud u al suggest..colorbar stick concealer or the pot 1-full coverage concealer? :struggle:
