A cheap, basic concealer...unfortunately I cannot use this on my face other than on my eyes, because it caused my skin to break out into tiny bumps. I also cannot use this on its own on my undereyes because it creases and is just too thick...so I always mix abit of this with TBS's 'ultra smooth liquid concealer' (it provides sheer-medium coverage), and I get pretty good coverage minus creasing, perfect for when my TBS concealer isn't giving as much coverage as I'd like. So if I do re-puchase, it's solely used for this purpose alone...one tube lasts me a long, long time, over a year since I don't use this often, and only very sparingly when I do...so I end up having to chuck it to get a new one...good thing it's cheap.
This is the best concealer I have used. I purchased it when I was out of work and low on cash. It works better than my old standby concealer from Nars and it is a fraction of the cost.
I have dark circles under my eyes and it seems like nothing can completely cover them up, but Coverstick has the best coverage of any concealer I have used, even the Nars. The thick formula makes it harder to blend, but gives me the coverage I need. The yellow tint helps too. (I use the shade "ivory.")
A good product if you have under eye circles or just need extra coverage. It's a lot easier to apply than a liquid concealer, plus you can just throw it in your purse and do a quick touch-up whenever. If you have tried more expensive concealers in the past and are interested in trying an inexpensive alternative, you will be pleasantly surprised.
Four stars, but only because it doesn't cover my circles completely. continued >>
This concealer is too thick for under eye circles. It will cake and sink into lines, not to mention its hell to blend. Wherever you put it, it will look a bit chalky depending on the way you apply it. Is good for spots though :) Again, the hugest problem with this is its consistency and finish, but it does cover quite well, where you put it.
Great corrector. Lasts a while. Packaging is bad.
this is one of the few cosmetics that i've repurchased over and over again. i can't tell you which number tube i'm on now. the formula is creamy and goes on smoothly, especially under the eyes. it covers blemishes well too and doesn't seem to break me out. i admittedly use this all over my face (practically) because i haven't found a foundation that covers and looks as natural as this does. the only downside to this product is the limited and confusing color selection. the lighter shades are too light sometimes, so i alternate and blend between the lighter and medium shades. this is odd because i am a pretty fair/pale person, but it works, so i don't question it!
This is my first green concealer and I have to say it's way too green. Although it does blend well. Overall, I would not purchase again b/c it's too green. If it weren't so green, I'd get it again b/c it's really creamy and you can blend it really easily.
the color selection isn't great but the texture is surprisingly good. i had lipstick concealors before and i never liked them but after reading allure's reader's picks, i decided to give it a try and i really like it! its creamy and blendable and good for anything you want to cover up
I wonder why not many have reviewed this, cause it is the best selling drugstore concealer nationwide. Proof is in the june issue of allure based on reader votes. This is opaque and covers EVERYTHING. Just a little dab goes a long way, and it's waterproof, but comes off with face wash. Under the eyes, and there are no traces of dark circles. I swear by this stuff. Don't waste money on a liquid because they can't cover much. I use light beige, and I've had a stick for over a year and it's not gone yet. Hope they never get rid of it.
Covers acne very well. I dab it on, blend it in and put a little powder over it. I too have tried many other cover sticks and this is the best. I am a very pale person and the ivory or light beige works good for me. I personally think it is too thick for under the eyes.
I've had this for so long that they've drastically changed the packaging! Mine is still the old school black tube. If the inside part remains the same, then this will be an appropriately good review. The texture is a bit thick, but that gives some decently sufficient coverage, be it a zit or undereye circles. Now it can be chalky under the eyes, and yes it can emphasize lines there as well, but if you use it on its own to mask a zit or broken cappillary (I have this on my left cheek and this is the only one that holds up against it), it's good stuff. Under my eyes is a huge challenge and it ticks me off because they are my best feature. I have bags, sadly, and have since teenhood. I've found that using Shiseido's wand undereye concealer (kind of a yellowish tone) on the puff itself, blended in with a light bit of eye cream, and then follow the bottom of the bag with this coverstick (thicker) corrector, also patted in with a bit of eye cream, you get about the best you can hope for to cover up undereye misfortunes. I probably oughta buy a new one, since I've had this one for like 8 years (really), but I just wipe it clean here and there and it seems fine.
