Review: Fashion 21 Perfect Stick in Almond

I was anticipating the demise of my elianto cream concealer which until now is still subsisting.. There is still 25% of the product and I am really eager to get it replaced.I saw pursebuzz's video with regard choosing the right shade of concealer and my elianto concealer looks lighter on my skin especially on pictures!!  I thought of buying a darker shade of concealer.Then, I saw this concealer which is locally available. 
The concealer is really creamy but not that moist compared to elianto's. This dries to an almost powder finish. I have really dry skin and this concealer tends to highlight it. This costs 160 pesos if I am not mistaken or something below 200 pesos. For its cheap price you cannot go wrong since it contains a lot of product. Imagine this is 11.5 grams. 

The shade perfectly suits my NC37 skin tone(medium yellow skin tone). It looks so natural on my skin. I am not fond of its scent though. This has a fairly medium coverage but make sure not to overdo the application because it cakes easily. You can also use this as a makeup base. I tried it but it really does not work on my dry skin.

It really does the job of concealing my under eyes. Sadly, this does not work for me. Still in search for a nice yellow concealer.. Perhaps, I will try Deep 03 shade of Elianto.

  2. Haha I also want to look for a new concealer. Getting tired of my elf and palladio concealers already. I heard The Balm's concealer is pretty good, tho.

  4. It looks like the one from Tita Fanny. I can see the difference it made on your under eye. Too bad it still didn't work for you.

  6. im not much on concealer though i do have dark undereye. I find that it just cakes & i dont feel like touching it up every now & then so i just don't bother..lately i feel the need to use one but i know how hard it is to find the perfect concealer.

    i told myself that if ever, i'd really go for the mac one.. instead of buying up lots of concealer that won't match my tone, i think it's safe to stay in a brand that can perfectly determine my real tone.. but then i have to wait a bit until i go back to being nc20 because i have a bad case of sunburn.
    >_<

    i have only trued FS & i think it's actually an ok concealer.. med to heavy coverage

  10. The best talaga yung F21 bronzer. I haven't used it like Shopcoholic, since college. :) The creamy concealer of Fashion21 is super perfect if you blend it with the sponge also so it won't cake up. :)
