Physician’s Formula Gentle Cover Concealer Stick in Yellow Review & Swatch

On a trip to CVS a few months ago, I wanted to try out a new concealer, and one that caught my eye was the Physician’s Formula Gentle Cover Concealer Stick in Yellow, which typically retails for $7.95, but at that time it was 40% off so I paid around $3.18 for it.  My skin is pretty sensitive at times, so I was looking for a concealer with a gentle formula, one that wouldn’t break me out, yet not cost me a fortune.

Physician’s Formula claims:
-Non-drying concealing stick.
-Provides smooth, easy application.
-Yellow hides blemishes, under-eye circles and other minor skin imperfections.
-Hypoallergenic.
-Fragrance-free.
-Non-comedogenic.
-Recommended by dermatologists and plastic surgeons.

The Physician’s Formula Gentle Cover Concealer Stick in Yellow, is perfect for my skin, it works really well in concealing my dark under-eye circles, and in addition it also does a wonderful job in concealing red blemishes and uneven skin tone.  The “yellow” in the concealer acts as a neutralizer, which is why it is able to hide/conceal red spots on my face. The product itself is creamy and in my opinion works better on combination to oily skin because it can get a bit drying if you already have dry skin.  On my combination skin, the concealer blends in smoothly, and feels very light weight.

PROS:
Conceals dark under-eye circles
Conceals red spots and uneven skin tone
Easily blend-able & smooth
Works perfectly on combination to oily skin type
Tiny amount is needed

CONS:
Can be too drying and “cakey” for dry skin type
Has a weird scent, but goes away once applied
A swatch of the concealer before blending.  The yellow blends into your skin color  (after you blend it in).
Overall I really do like this product, as I mentioned before it really does work perfectly for my skin type, one word of advice a tiny amount is needed therefore if you use too much product it will appear very cakey, therefore a tip is to just apply a small amount and work from there! Also, if you do have dry skin you still can use this product, just make sure you moisturize your skin really well, especially under your eyes/dark circles, this way it will allow the concealer to blend better. The Gentle Cover Concealer Sticks also comes in Green (green hides red blemishes and scars) and Flesh tone (flesh tone shades cover any minor skin imperfections.

  2. I'm always looking for something to cover under eye circles. Right now I'm using Garnier's eye roller and it's OK, but I don't think it conceals very well.

  7. I use a regular concealer but I really LOVE my 4-toned (yellow/green/blue/pink) Tone Correcting Powder from ELF. I really believe colored concealer can really make a difference for covering up hyperpigmentaion, scars, acne etc. Great post hunny! xoxo janna

    1. Hi Janna, I love the different toned concealers!! The ELF tone correcting powder was a bit too drying for me, but I think i might give it a try for Summer since my skin is not as dry as it was in the winter months!

  8. Yeah I have to admit too that this is the first yellow Concealer I ever saw. Just know the typical green and pink ones. It also could work on my in summer oily skin. Thanks for the review. I'm curious about this thingy now :-)
