Is it so bad that I was initially attracted to the Avon Ideal Flawless CC Concealer Stick pencils due the cute pastel shades?
I’m always on the lookout for new Avon products thanks to having a best friend who is a sales rep and has plenty of brochures and free samples on hand for me!
Avon have recently released a new trio of colour concealing sticks, each in different shades to help banish any problem areas. Colour correcting is a popular beauty trend alongside others such as strobing and contouring.
The yellow concealer stick is to be used for any dark circles under the eyes, while the neutralising green conceals red patches and blemishes.
There is also an illuminating lilac concealer available which I haven’t tried but aims to conceal dull areas of your skin and give your skin a general boost.
Each pencil retails at £8 each but there are almost always offers on with Avon, so they are currently on sale for £5 each.
As you can see, the concealers come in a pencil/crayon format and are really easy to pop in your makeup bag and touch up as you go throughout the day. I was excited to try these out as a makeup addict.
On first application I did find the sticks a little harsh on my skin, but I think that they just need to be applied carefully onto moisturised skin. I found it easiest to blend in the softening yellow concealer under my eyes just by using my fingers, which then gave me a more wide eyed look.
With the green concealer, I have used this a few times on any red areas of my skin and I find it covers them up perfectly. The only downside that I can note is the fact that as they are pencils, they are going to need sharpening as you go along. Because of this I’d also be interested to see a liquid version of these.
Using these concealers has definitely sparked a new interest in colour correcting!
