Nature Republic Botanical Stick Concealer Review
Even though makeup isn’t a must for me, I like having concealer on hand in case of a blemish that I’d like to cover. The format of Nature Republic Botanical Stick Concealer caught my eye - I’ve never owned a stick concealer before. It comes in 01 Light Beige and 02 Natural Beige and is available on* Jolse. I chose the 01 option since I’m very fair.
The concealer twists out (similar to lipstick) and has a creamy texture. I wouldn’t say it’s too soft - you can still get a very precise application.
How to use
Dab on the areas of concern (blemishes or dark circles)
Most of the time when doing makeup, I don’t use concealer under the eyes (I don’t have many issues there, plus sometimes the more product there the worse everything looks). I did try it under the eyes for the purposes of testing, and I don’t like that. It’s too hard to apply and spread, so I would recommend a more liquid formula for the delicate under eye area.
I reserve this product specifically for pimples, and for that it works well. Because the stick has a flat tip and more narrow sides and edges, I can turn it in different ways to get a very small area or coverage or a larger one. Nature Republic Botanical Stick Concealer is the right combination of firm and creamy - easy to apply but stays in place. I struggle getting enough coverage on dark blemishes using liquid concealers - they don’t stay in place. This does, and then I simply blend out the “edges” of the application area.
I do wish Nature Republic (and other brands) would expand their color range. I think one shade lighter would work better for me, and of course deeper skin tones are totally left out here.
Overall, not a bad product, but I do not think I will repurchase. It just didn’t wow me. If it came in a lighter shade, then I think I would get it again.
