Pros: inexpensive
Cons: difficult to blend, gummy texture, poor formulation, too dark for light skin

I heard rave reviews about the CoverGirl Smoothers concealer stick, so I decided to give it whirl just to see if it could help with some of my minor facial blemishes and the dark circles under my eyes. As with most products in the CoverGirl line, the concealer was inexpensive, which made it even easier to make a final decision on my purchase.

I went for the light shade because I have fairly pale skin, but once applied, I noticed that the light shade was actually a pink/beige color. Even on the darker spots on my face, it was evident that I was wearing something a little extra on my visage. The product wash't covering up my blemishes, it was enhancing them! The product also appeared very chalky on my skin and didn't blend well, as it has somewhat of a gummy texture. I am assuming this is so it doesn't wear off as quickly.

Even with the perfect foundation combination, I wasn't able to utilize the concealer. It was just too dark. I think that would work well on those with a medium complexion, but users should be mindful of the somewhat dry formulation, which doesn't lend itself for an easy application at all.
