I’ve reviewed quite a few under-eye concealers before, and if you’ve read any of those reviews than you already know I’ve ranked my favorite under-eyes concealers for every situation. Each one is ‘the best’ in a variety of categories: best dark circle correcter, best every day, best applicator, best to wear with makeup etc. etc. Well the reason I’m repeating all of this is to emphasize how incredible the Wonderstick is. It’s better than the best under eye concealer for dark circles, it’s better than the best every day concealer, it’s better than…well you get the point right? The Wonderstick by Beauty Is Life is the Best of the Best!
This amazing stick concealer will cover just about anything on your face, red spots, pimples, dark spots, scars, dark circles, deep lines – anything! It’s also the easiest concealer to apply ever! You just swipe it directly on the area you need to touch up and then just dab and blend with your fingers. I’ve never had to use a brush or a BeautyBlender with the Wonderstick, it always distributes the color evenly and the finish is always streak-free!
There is only one shade available in the Wonderstick, which is completely OK because it doesn’t matter what skin tone you have, this universal shade will magically conceal all imperfections and simultaneously brighten your tone. As seen in the picture below, it even conceals the darkest sun spots and freckles!
When i’m running extra late and I need to just get out of the house quickly, I throw my Wonderstick in my purse and use it on the go – while walking to work, in a cab, in my office just using a pocket mirror, etc. and i’m always astonished with the outstanding results. I can quickly and easily highlight and brighten certain areas, and the light reflecting formula literally transforms my face . Furthermore, with a few strategically placed Wonderstick applications on the bridge of my nose, on my chin, my eye lids, under eye circles and the shades in my nose groove – I swear it looks as if I just applied beautiful and natural looking medium coverage tinted moisturizer. It absolutely brings vitality and freshness to my face!
There’s not much else I can say about the Wonderstick, it’s so wonderful and amazing that it’s unfair to even compare it to other concealers! There’s no contest, Wonderstick is the best of the best! I will just say that Beauty Is Life couldn’t have described the coverage of Wonderstick any better, they say “it offers a light texture with GOD covering abilities.” That is the perfect description, and below are a few more before & after pictures that show the out-of-this-world coverage…
I’ll end my review by saying I strongly believe that every women, who loves makeup, products and all things beauty related, should be required to own the Wonderstick…or better yet if I was granted one wish from a ‘Beauty Fairy’ I would wish to be able to give all beauty product loving women the gift of the Wonderstick. I love love LOVE it! I highly recommend (require) getting this magic stick so you can love it too!
Beauty Is Life is available at Barneys ($32.00)
