Shop My Stash review – Manhattan Cover Stick Concealer
A 100 years ago I did a “Shop My Stash” project but kind of failed – maybe? I combined it with a no-buy but that didn’t work out all that well, although I haven’t actually bought many things – only a very few, and only things I needed/didn’t already have.
But even though I didn’t get around to using up all the products from the list, I’ve actually used some of them quite a lot. This cover stick is something I use every day now. So, let’s get to it.
The packaging: Like the powder, the cover stick has had an upgrade as well. The new packaging looks a little fresher and the colors are different, but the product is pretty much the same. The old packaging, which I have, is admittedly a little dull but nothing you think about while using the products, since most of us apply cover-products in the morning, at home.
The smell: It doesn’t really have much of a smell, definitely not something you notice anyways.
The texture: It’s got a creamy texture though a little “dry” which I think it’s great if you have oily skin. I often have problems with applying too moisturizing products when my skin is oily so it’s definitely a big plus for me. Even though it’s creamy it dries up/sets quickly which means you don’t have to wait forever to continue with your routine.
The price: The new cover looks a bit better but the product is essentially the same, so if you want to save a good chunk of money, I’d recommend buying from FragranceDirect for 0.99 punds – they only have Sand (76) left, though. If you want the new packaging, it can be found at Matas for 69,95 kr.
Does it work? It works, definitely. Even though I use Vanilla (70) for the powder, I have the Sand (76) cover stick because I have very bad redness under my eyes due to anemia. The coverage is good, although I think it would be much better for someone with less redness under the eyes. I get semi-coverage but the powder helps it look much better. I use this product every day, so I definitely like it.
Rating: 4/5 stars. The only reason it doesn’t get 5 stars is that the coverage simply isn’t 100% when you have the problems I have. If I had “normal” bags under my eyes this would definitely do wonders.
