My Experience with Covergirl CG Smoothers Concealer:
The Covergirl CG Smoothers Concealer is a stick concealer which comes in a dark blue twist-up tube with a shiny blue cover which has a transparent top. This enables you to see the actual color of the concealer before you buy. The concealer stick is shaped just like a lipstick with the same size and slant as a lipstick bullet. The concealer stick does not swivel back completely into the tube. So until you use up some portion of the concealer stick, you need to be careful while putting on or taking off the cap so that you don’t nick the concealer accidentally.
The CG Smoothers Concealer comes in a number of shades. So you should be able to find your shade quite easily. I got the shade “Medium.” which is a perfect match for my skin. If you want to make the undereye look brighter, you could also try one shade lighter than your skin tone.
Many stick concealers are very drying and drag on the skin, but this one is not like that at all. It is quite creamy but not greasy. It glides on the skin easily and being in a lipstick shaped bullet, it is quite easy and quick to use. It also blends very easily. I do not use a concealer brush with this. I just lightly pat with my fingers and gently blend the edges. It requires minimal blending, especially since the shade is such a good match for my skin.
I really like the texture of this concealer. It is not so emolient that it creases nor is it so drying that it drags on the skin or is patchy. This is the perfect texture for me, but make sure that your undereye area is moisturized before you use this, otherwise you might feel a bit of drag. You do not have to use a very hydrating under eye moisturizer for this concealer to go on smoothly. Any regular under-eye moisturizer will do. But don’t skip the moisturizer.
The CG Smoothers Concealer provides medium coverage. Unless you have very dark under-eye circles, this should be good enough for regular use. It has peachy undertones which helps to cover the darkness. It does cover up spots and blemishes well, but I feel that the concealer does not last very long when used for spot correction, but for the under eyes, it lasts through the day without any creasing. I use a light dusting of setting powder on top of this. The concealer does set quickly and you are not left with any tackiness.
