Shahnaz Hussain Shaheel Cover Stick-Review

Hello lovelies….

Here I am again with another review and this is about a product which seems very essential in every girl’s kit because everyone every now and then has the need to camouflage a few spots and little dark circles….

Yup…so this is about a concealer /cover stick… It is the Shahnaz Husain Shaheel Cover Stick in the shade light beige.
I am not a person very much in to foundation or concealers on a day to day basis….So this is my first concealer I ever tried, it is much cheaper compared to the ones from high-end brands…as I did not want to splurge on a product which I had never used before and was not sure about.

What the brand claims:

An ideal concealer, which provides extra coverage for marks, scars and dark shadows around eyes. Conceals blemishes and gives make-up a satin smooth finish.

Directions of use:

Apply on blemishes or under-eye shadows to cover them. Then apply foundation over entire face for an even color tone.

My experience with Shahnaz Hussain Shaheel Cover Stick:

I am so disappointed with this product because it has failed me so bad and I am glad I din’t spend too much to be disappointed. The packaging is like that of a lipstick and is fine but not too sturdy, easy to use and travel friendly.
The product does nothing in terms of coverage, feels heavy and is very very greasy; I hate it on my skin. It feels cakey once applied. So this product is not worth a try from my experience… 🙁

Pros of Shahnaz Hussain Shaheel Cover Stick:

  • Packaging is travel friendly but sturdy enough.
  • I don’t see any pros as the product does not provide any kind of coverage.

Cons of Shahnaz Hussain Shaheel Cover Stick:

  • Feels heavy, greasy, cakey on skin.
  • Leaves a pinkish cast which makes my wheatish skin look darker.

Sneha December 12, 2012 at 9:09 pm

I havnt evr found a proper concealer for my tone 🙁 tried so many & sick of foundation & concealers. So nw jst showing off my “bare face look” even at weddings 🙁


Shruti December 12, 2012 at 9:49 pm

OMG I have this! It was a day before my engagement and I had these reddish areas on the sides of my nose and I was freaking out! I did not have my concealer at hand and my mom went out and bought this. And it was horrible!! But luckily the photos didnt pick up anything and I still looked good ! PHEW! What a scare! I tossed this out the next day!

I dont think they have good scientists and researchers enough who`d formulate proper make-up to keep at par with international brands which obviously have much better lab facilities..So I think S?hahnaz hussain`s skincare may still be okay , but the makeup`s definitely no no.


Rati December 12, 2012 at 11:16 pm

OMGG!!! what is this?? I guess they should stick to skin care only and make it better. This is soo bad!! 🙁


shagufta December 13, 2012 at 10:04 am

I know…..with all that hype abt their skin care range…i had high hopes on this one…. 🙁


tina December 13, 2012 at 12:49 am

Thanks for the review.I was looking for an alternative to my l’oreal which is a bit ashy.I’ll stay clear of this one.


shagufta December 13, 2012 at 10:03 am

Good…. 🙂


Indianglamprincess December 13, 2012 at 11:10 am

I had this sort of experience with their foundation!! 🙁 It was dry and crumbly!!


shagufta December 13, 2012 at 12:09 pm

Oh goodness!!!…. i guess i saved myself that pain ….because when i was purchasing this concealer i was also thinking of picking up their foundation from the counter…but some voice in my mind asked me to wait until i had my first exp….. 🙁 ….

Al glad i din’t pick that up…. 🙂


Manisha December 13, 2012 at 1:18 pm

OMG such a dud. I was thinking to give a try to concealer but SH products completely no no. Hope I would get a good concealer to experimenting with 🙂


sakhi December 13, 2012 at 1:44 pm

shagufta December 13, 2012 at 2:18 pm

You said it lady…. 🙁


Kinjal December 14, 2012 at 12:19 am

i have this one too, its horrible, i dint like the texture and doesn’t not suite my skin type at all, its still lying in my makeup self some were, they really need to improve.


Arja December 15, 2012 at 4:01 pm

You can try using it as a lip erase or use to lighten lipstick shades you know..insead of throwing it away.. just a thought. ^_^


shagufta December 17, 2012 at 11:37 am

Will give that a try…. at least to put this to work… thanks… 🙂


Samantha December 15, 2012 at 4:07 pm
