It's time for another This or That series post! This time around, it's all about concealer sticks. I don't use concealers so much for cover up, as I do to cover up under eye circles. Occasionally I'll use it for a problem area. I like something that is easy to blend, and easy to apply.
Benefit Fake Up:
I'll just start by saying that I really like Benefit products. It lives up to his reputation as a great brand. I actually got this concealer stick with my Birchbox points when I was still getting that last year. It has a clear ring around the concealer center that is supposed to give your skin some moisture. I can't say this ring did a whole lot for me, but I liked the concealer part. It was easy to blend and was thick enough to cover under eye circles. The down side to this product is that it's $24 for 0.12 ounces.
CoverGirl True Blend Fixstick:
When my Benefit was running low, I decided to try out something new. CoverGirl has been a great brand for me in the past. The great thing about this one, is that the price tag is only $8. It goes on really easy, and I love that it's like a pencil. It does take a little more of the product to get the job done. The bottom of the stick simply rolls more of the concealer up. I don't feel like it blends quite as easy, but it's not far off.

Overall, if I had to choose one to repurchase, I think it would be the CoverGirl. The price has a big factor in this decision, since the products perform pretty similarly. Again, I use the products for minor blemishes, and under eye circles for the most part. But the CoverGirl gets the job done for me, and at a third of the cost!
