G2 Organics Hickey Stick - An Amazing Heavy Duty Concealer!
Hi folks, today I wanted to share with you a product that I was sent from G2 Organics to try out. It's the Hickey Stick. I've used a lot of concealers in my day, and I have to say- I think this will be replacing my current #1- Make Up For Ever Full Cover. In the past, I've also used NARS and MAC Studio concealers.
My current skin treatments have greatly lightened my scars, but there was a time with I had really dark acne marks. I wish I had something as good as this in my arsenal! This two step full coverage concealer really works wonders.
The first step is a yellow toned step. I used a clean finger tip to gently apply it onto primed skin. The heat from my fingers helped spread it evenly. I then used a small concealer brush to pat in the second beige colored step. Patting keeps first layer from smearing and helped blend it evenly into the surrounding skin. I then lightly applied my foundation and set it with powder.
From the G2 Organics website:
• Made using organic and natural ingredients. A non-toxic product
• A unisex concealer - perfect for men and women
• Covers blemishes, scars, pimples and yes, embarrassing hickey’s!
• Ingredients includes Vitamin E to heal
• Works well with all skin tones - from light to dark. The two shades are blended together, to create the perfect match for your complexion.
• Reiki charged for good energy!
The coverage is phenomenal. Since it does such a good job concealing, I've had to use drastically less foundation. About 1/2 the amount I usually apply to my face. Check out how it can even cover the burn scar on my wrist.
I only have two minor gripes with this product. It comes in only light and dark. Though I wear concealer under my foundation, I know that others don't and with that limited color range, it may be hard to find a match. If you buy both sets of Hickey Sticks to blend the two shades, it would be pretty costly. I was lucky that it nearly matched my skin but others might not be so lucky. The one other issue is that it is oil based, so heat and excess oil production can cause the layers of concealer to move if you are not careful. I highly recommend gentle blotting and a silica based powder to gently set your face makeup!
All in all? A really superb concentrated concealer that I wish I had back in the days of my pizza face acne days. It really would have made such a difference! I'm really more impressed than I thought I would be.
G2 Organics Hickey Stick is $24.95 and can be purchased HERE at the G2 Organics Shop.
