AVON Idea Shade Concealer Stick

Recently I mentioned how I was a big fan of AVON's Idea Shade Concealer Stick and some of your were curious as to what was so great about this product.

For some of us, concealer is the go to buddy to cover up our blemishes and get rid of dark circles under our eyes because sometimes foundation just isn't enough. Concealer comes in all kinds of tubes and jars, but I prefer a stick. It's handy and does not make a big mess, in fact, it becomes a very simple and quick touch up to do rather than a whole process. One thing to remember is that concealer can go on before OR after your foundation...there is no set rule! Whatever works better for you is what you should stick to.

I have always used MAC concealer sticks since they were so convenient and easy to apply, but paying $15.50 every time I needed to get a back up was getting a little too expensive. I found AVON Ideal Shade Concealer stick online and gave it a try and have been using it ever since. It cost's $6.00, which is 1/3 of the price of the MAC concealer and I would totally compare them to one another...in fact the MAC concealer is a little too cakey for me. MAC stopped making the concealer stick, which is so inconvenient for people who liked the quick and easy application of a stick. Now they made a foundation in a stick form, but it costs $29!

AVON's concealer is much lighter and smoother and does not have that waxy feel you get with most concealers. It goes on smooth with a very soft feeling and does not dry out and cake onto your skin. It is not runny like liquid concealers and you don't have to wait for it to dry. It is like a stick that is in between liquid and solid.

The shade I chose was "Neutral".

The packaging looks just like the MAC tube!

I'm quite lucky to have a mom who is an AVON representative, I get to experiment and try out all these great things and if I like them, I buy them for myself! I have another post coming up tomorrow with all the incredible goodies I picked up during my last AVON haul!

  5. I bought this and though you are right about the coverage, I found it too dry. Sad! I warm it up on my finger then apply because I felt like it was tugging my eyes, eek. Also I think I need to get a shade darker.
