This or That: Sonia Kashuk Take Cover Concealing Stick Vs. Smashbox Camera Ready Coverage Concealer

Hey you! How's the week treating you so far? I'm personally counting down the seconds minutes until I hit the road for the beach. Have I mentioned that enough already? Be sure to keep up with me on Instagram if you want to see lots of beach pictures. I'll still be posting each day, so be sure to stop by. But before I go, I wanted to compare two thick concealers in this week's This or That:

This: Sonia Kashuk Take Cover Concealing Stick

  • $8.99, .07 oz
  • Target stores or Target.com
  • 3 shades
  • thick, creamy stick concealer
  • excellent at coverage, no creasing
That: Smashbox Camera Ready Coverage Concealer
  • $20 
  • various high-end beauty stores and departments and online
  • 6 shades
  • creamy stick concealer
  • light to medium coverage, no creasing

Side By Side: I thought I would show Smashbox and Sonia Kashuk concealers' coverage of a tattoo. Please note that these shades match my face, and not my inner wrist. Also, these are designed for concealing areas on the face, but I had the same results on my inner wrist.

This or That:
  • While I love Smashbox products, the fact that they have 6 shades, the coverage just wasn't there for me. Sonia Kashuk came with more product at a much cheaper price, and the coverage was much better.

  21. Seriously wish this post came out like last week before I bought a new Laura Mercier concealer!! Great review!

  22. I love your reviews and that came handy to me... I saw a stick concealer that I was or am about to try... but did't think of these two... I think I'll give it a try, cause both looked good, although you say that Smashbox doesn't have many option... I will try the other first, then! Really very handy to me!

  23. I haven't tried either of those but the Sonya Kashuk one looks great! Would you say these are good for coving acne spots? I use a maybelline cover stick for that right now, but I think I want to try the Sonya Kashuk one!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow, great side by side comparison! Definitely worth it for the price too, great review!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Great demonstration! I'm guessing that is your tattoo?

  26. I love Smashbox products but I'm really impressed by the Sonia Kashuk coverage!! Another SK product to try out!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Way better coverage for less than 1/2 the price. Sonia Kashuk is a no brainer here.

  28. I haven't tried either of these but based on the review the SK sounds/looks best!

  32. I really hope Sonia Kashuk expands the color ranges for this concealer. I was at Target just a couple days ago looking for a concealer, but couldn't find anything that suited me. I would be so happy to see them broadening the color range sometime soon. Great review, I agree that the Kashuk concealer looks to be far superior to the Smashbox in terms of coverage.

  33. funny story: i bought the sonia kashuk concealer one time and was so excited to try it out. buuuttt the packaging on it was horrible. i literally COULD NOT get the plastic wrapping off of it to open it. when i did finally get the wrapping off, the tube was cracked and the stick was smashed. literally 8 bucks down the drain. that's why i've just stuck with my trusty maybelline concealer... lol it's funny thinking back on it but at the time i was piiiiiissed! lol But now i really wanna try it..maybe the packaging has changed.

  34. The Sonia Kashuk is really impressive - another brand which is new to me!

  35. Sonia Kashuk definitely comes off as the winner here. It looks like the Smashbox one had a bit of crumbling as well in your photo.

  44. I might have to try that Sonia one...I am actually loving those products at Target. The new lotion line is fantastic...love the scent and prefer a couple over any B&BW for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh I'm always looking for a good concealer, I wonder if this will cover undereye circles because most of my concealers don't do such a great job. I will have to check this out next time at target! :)
