I have a yellow to warm undertone, and the shade 003 Warm Beige was a good match for my skin tone. I don’t have much problem with blemishes and pimples, but what I have been a victim of is dark circles and visible pores on my nose. I have always been a frequent buyer of Colorbar lipsticks. I just love the variety of shades available and how pigmented they are. So, I am not a stranger to the brand. When they launched this concealer-cum-foundation, I had to try it.
I have been using Colorbar Full Cover Makeup Stick SPF 30 for almost a year now.

The packaging of this makeup stick is everything! It has the classic Colorbar appeal, and I love their metalluc look. It looks like a giant lipstick! The packaging is convenient and travel-friendly. I carry it almost everywhere in my handbag. It fits perfectly in my sling bag as well.
Since I have combination skin, I don’t use any moisturizer or primer before applying Colorbar Full Cover Makeup Stick. Right after face wash, I dab it all over my face. It has medium coverage, so it does not feel heavy. This makeup stick can also be built up, so I apply it more on my dark circles to get good coverage. After dabbing it, I use my fingers to blend. I tried using a sponge and brush to feel like a pro, but it didn’t work. The thing is, Colorbar Full Cover Makeup Stick has a thick creamy texture, so it needs the warmth of my fingers. It blends easily and evenly.

After I started using Colorbar Full Cover Makeup Stick, I have almost stopped using other moisturizers. Since I go to the office every day, I use this makeup stick daily. It has a good staying duration. By the end of the day, my T-zone gets a little shiny, so it needs just a little touch-up and I’m good to go.

When it is very humid, it wears off from under my eyes. So that is something I don’t really like. I quickly go to the washroom and dab some more. So this concealer-cum-foundation is not an ultimate product, but it is a pretty good one.

Colorbar Full Cover Makeup Stick SPF 30 is definitely one product to watch out for, ladies. It gives good coverage without making your skin look cakey. Although it is a good concealer and foundation, there are some things you should be aware of. If you have visible pores, I will suggest you avoid it as it does not cover them. Thankfully, I don’t have so many pores, so it’s not a big problem. Also, avoid using brushes and sponges to blend it out because it does not work. Overall, it is a good product.

Does not look cakey

SPF 30

Does not settle in fine lines

CONS

Expensive

Limited shade range


Colorbar Full Cover Makeup Stick has been in my vanity box for almost two years. After I started using this makeup stick, I have stopped looking at other foundations and concealers.
For my dry skin, this is the best. Yes, I have to apply a moisturizer before using it, but I just love its light and creamy texture. It gives me the right coverage, and it does not look cakey or settle in my fine lines.

1/5

PROS

Attractive packaging

CONS

Expensive

Easily breakable


From the first day itself, I judged Colorbar Full Cover Makeup Stick. Maybe I got unlucky. I was trying to see the quantity, so I twisted it all the way up, and within half a second it broke! I am not happy with the packaging and the quantity.

After it broke, the application process just got ugly, and I just wasted my money. So disappointed!

3/5

PROS

Convenient packaging

Easily available

No parabens

SPF

CONS

Available in only three shades

Unnatural finish

Does not cover blemishes


After a very high recommendation, I bought Colorbar Full Cover Makeup Stick SPF 30. But after using it for a month, I will say that it’s not very impressive. I will give it a thumbs up for the packaging and the way it looks, but that's about it.

Firstly, the application is very inconvenient. I don’t like using my fingers to blend my foundation. But without fingers, it does not blend well.

It also does not cover my blemishes. I also feel the shade is not well-suited. My skin is dusky, so I chose Warm Beige. I usually go for a darker color for my skin tone, but there wasn’t any darker shade available. So, I kind of look fake. Over a month, I’ve barely used it.

So far no side effects have been recorded. But, in some instances, Colorbar Full Cover Makeup Stick can be drying for dry skin type. To correct that, apply a deep moisturizer before using it.
Also, for oily skin, there are complaints of the skin getting oily after a while. This can be corrected by using a compact for touch-ups.
