As you might imagine, I hate the name ‘Confidence Stick’ for a product that diguises lines, as though a few lines should be reason to deplete your confidence. It’s this kind of messaging that ensures that older women are continually kept in a state of low confidence! I would like to tell them what to do with their stick. However, I have tried it, and to a certain degree, it is quite successful in blurring lines. The formula contains light diffusing powders in a balm like suspension that feels like silicone, so you do know it’s there – feather light we could not call this. However, it claims a mattifying element and that usually does make a product a bit heavier.
I’ve tried it on some lines on the outer corners of my eyes – one eye has more creases than the other (which is normal – it’s my right side that is more creased than left) and it worked more successfully on the lighter creases. So if you have heavy creasing, I’d say that this will do very little, but if they’re more surface creases, you will see a small difference in smoothness. You can use it under make up or over make up, and it’s suggested that you touch up through out the day. I suggest you don’t worry all day about a few lines and get on with your life!
It’s here for £26 if you like the sound of it.
