Review and swatches. Sleek - Hide It Concealer

Here's my experience with Sleek hide it Concealer.
Sleek Says: 
Hide It Concealer
Blend away imperfections and blemishes with Hide it Concealer. The rich, creamy formula allows for incredibly easy application, perfect for concealing under eye circles and blemishes.

I say:
Starting with the packaging, it's a sturdy, sleek, twist up cylinder.

I got it in 01 which initially I thought is way to light for me but upon use it was okay and went well with my complexion which is Asian wheatish. I didn't have many shade options when I was buy it from so I just picked it up; otherwise I would have gone for a slightly darker shade.

Smell is like crayons and I hate it but the good thing is that I doesn't linger on and diminishes after a while. It is SPF 15 which is a plus!
It has a creamy texture and blends easily but has a strong tendency to crease around eye area and that's the reason I don't use it for blemishes on my pore-full cheeks as it digs in the pores.
Now coming to business; I first tried it on my problematic eye area. Although it provides light coverage and turns my inner eye area grayish, it highlights the eye area and helps in decreasing that tired look.

 Do u notice how it highlights my eye area in pics?
It's pretty good for blemishes and scars. I don't have redness on my face so i'm not sure about if it'll work for that but I guess it will. Despite tries  couldn't get a nice picture of blemishes on my face so here's one I took after applying it on a scar on my hand.. hope that helps.

Final verdict: 
It will only work if you want to hide light imperfections; its not that heavy business concealer. Despite being creamy its a light coverage concealer with a horrible crayon like smell. Works average on dark circles if they are not very dark since it turns very dark eye circles into grey which looks horrible. It works well on blemishes and scars; again if they are not very dark. 

Brand: Sleek

Cons: Horrible crayon like smell, sets into creases and pores, only for light coverage, turns heavily dark eye area into grey.
