Not For WOC.
Okay so I normally like the majority of the products I buy, but this one was a total miss. I went on a makeup binge about a year ago and I knew absolutely nothing, which is how this product reached my collection. To put it plainly, I don't like it. I got the shade Medium and honestly it looks terrible. It doesn't brighten under my eyes, it doesn't conceal dark circles, and it settles into your fine lines, therefore I think it is a really poor concealer. The color selection is not suitable for women of color because it comes out white on the skin and makes your under eyes look like you have a ton of powder underneath. The only possible way I would use this product is if it works well with another concealer or if that concealer is too dark. I really regret buying this product. However if you are fair skinned this would probably work for you.
- Doesn't conceal dark circles

- Comes out white on the skin
Good for under eye circles
NYC (New York Color)'s Cover Stick is a stick style concealer. I use the shade "Light", which I purchased at WalMart for $2.65 for 0.08 oz.
Packaging is a clear bullet tube similar to a lipstick tube. The cap is clear and snaps on firmly. I haven't encountered any issues with the twisting mechanism.
This was the first concealer I used in a long time. I hadn't needed one. My mid teen years were relatively acne free, and the acne I got from working as a fry cook was usually covered by my uniform hat. But after moving back to the States from Australia, my skin went crazy, it was the worst it'd ever been. I figured it wouldn't stay that way so I didn't want to invest much in a concealer. This was the cheapest one I could find, so I picked it up, not expecting too much.
This concealer doesn't deliver great coverage for pimples. It masks them a bit but mostly just neutralizes the redness surrounding them. Neutralizing seems to be this concealer's specialty. It covers under eye circles really well (granted mine aren't that bad, but a little noticeable). I was really impressed by it's ability to neutralize both redness and darkness, while adding a bit of brightness without any shimmer or pearlesence.
However the formula is lacking in several areas, all stemming from it's very dry texture. First you need quite a lot to cover your under eye area, or any area other than just a spot or two. That's mainly because this concealer doesn't blend out well. The formula is quite dry and once applied, it wants to stay put. Which is good, I never need to reapply it during the day, but this concealer sets too fast.
Only three shades, and two corrector shades were available, so there's no variety at all, other than "light" "medium" and "dark". I use light, which is, surprisingly, almost too light for me.
Overall this concealer is quite good considering the price. Its mainly good for neutralizing discoloration, but not really masking blemishes. Because of that, I've moved onto a different concealer and won't be repurchasing this one, but I do recommend it as a good, budget under eye concealer.
I think this is a good cover stick. I have a few different types of cover sticks and I must say this is a good cheap version.. There are different colors for different types of corrections needed.. Just pick the one that you are trying to correct and go for it.. For the price they are u might as well buy all the colors they are that cheap..
