We love to embrace our imperfections, but not the ones that come in our way while doing full face makeup. On such occasions, we need a concealer. I’ve been loyal to Colorbar Stick Concealer ever since I started using it. But recently, I felt the need of adding few more shades to my collection because I think a concealer can be used in various ways. W7 brand has almost all kinds of concealer options from liquid to stick. You name it and they have it! Other than this Green variant, Hide ‘N’ Seek has two more variants – Lavender and Natural.
£3. 30 for 5g (I got this for £1.99)
The packaging is attractive and wise. The green correcting concealer quad comes in a round compact packaging which contains four shades – Anti-Redness, Concealer, Dark Circles and Highlighter. It has a transparent plastic lid and a black body. The good thing is that usage of each shade is written above each shade. Otherwise, I would have to Google or search IMBB. The packaging is lightweight and shuts with a click.
My Experience with W7 Green Hide ‘N’ Seek Colour Correcting Concealer Quad:
These shades have creamy texture and you’ll need a brush to use these products to maintain hygiene. You can also use a brush just for dabbing and then you may use your finger for blending, if you do not want to use a brush for blending. Now let’s talk about each shade one by one.
Concealer – You can use this shade to hide your new or not-so-new pimples on your face. I applied this concealer on one of my almost dead pimples but unfortunately this concealer failed to cover it properly. If it cannot hide my almost a week old pimple which demands lesser coverage than the new ones, then I don’t think it will be able to hide my new pimples. Also, this concealer is only one shade lighter than my skin tone. A perfect concealer should be two shades lighter than your skin tone.
Dark Circles – This shade is for covering dark circles. I do not have severe dark circles. So it does work on my light dark circles. I can easily blend this shade on my dry eye lids and its crème texture doesn’t make my eyelids oily.
Highlighter – I use this highlighter to highlight my brows. It also has beautiful shimmers in it. You may also use it for highlighting and contouring technique. I loved the pigmentation of this particular shade. You will get ample chance to make use of this shade.
Anti Redness – Sometimes pimples leave red marks on our face and if you’ve those red marks you need this green shade. To fight red you need green according to the color chart. This green shade works best for me when I mix it with the concealer. Anti-redness has medium pigmentation and if you’ve slight red marks, then this is just fine for you.
Staying Power – It stays on for 3 to 3.5 hours without any primer.
