i use this only for undereye circles. it does cover my circles well, the color lasts all day, and the shade medium dark is a really good match. it has a yellowish undertone to it which is what i need. i like that its oil free and i also like the lipstick style packaging.
my cons about this concealer are:
1)it does crease. after wearing this for only about 15 minutes..i noticed creasing. i blotted mid day, and the same thing happened again...more creasing.
2) it took two layers to cover my dark circles
overall, not a bad concealer for 5 bucks. however, im going to experiment with some high end concealers..simply because i cant stand creasing.

I'm NW10, I bought it in white-which is more off white & it's perfect for brightening my undereye area.. I have combo skin, though my under eye area is more dry, so I prep w/Clinique All About Eyes Rich before hand.. It blends in easy & I set with powder with minimal fine lines showing up. It's awesome!
I've used high end and other drugstore to no avail.. Either it was too dark, didnt cover, or it creased or made my fine lines very apparent.. Or was too dry..
Kinda bummed I have to go with "White" as a match, but if it works whatever.. I have 3 backups I love it that much..

Easy to apply and blends well. The stick covers my dark circles better than some liquid DG concealers I've tried. Seems to last all day, but that could be more due to my primer than the concealer itself. If you use too much it can crease under the eye, but will easily smooth back out.

I bought this looking for a new daily concealer. My holy grail is Maybelline Cover Stick but the colors can be hard to find. This was pretty good. It went on easily and didn't require much blending.I could almost rub the stick on my face and go. It covers well, is light weight and matched my skin perfectly. I purchased light-medium. I would repurchase as it's cheap, easy to use and does the job.

I don't like this product. It doesn't cover my redness, not even a little bit. The price is cheap, but what's the point of repurchasing something that doesn't work, I don't care if it was 10 cent, it's still a waste of money,.

with other makeup brands, i feel that i've always had to settle for a shade that wasn't 100% right for me and just hope that no one would look close enough to notice something was a little off... secret cover in light medium is literally my exact shade; it just blends right onto my skin as if nothing is even there. while i've had great success with this product in concealing blemishes and skin discolorations (with all day staying power, no reapplication needed), i would not recommend secret cover if your primary problem is dark circles.

Im not sure what secret this is covering because I can still see my undereye circles. This is too sheer of a formula to cover.

WORST EVER!!! i bought this thinking that maybe i had finally found a concealer that's my color. it was but it was very cheap looking. it didn't blend in my skin, sort settled on top and creased. like there were stps were you could see dark circles and spots were you couldn't. ive tried other drugstore brands and even thought they weren't my color but at least it wasn't like that one. i gave it one lippie because it was my color but other than that it would have been a flat out zero! >:(

Love this product! I used to purchase Makeup Forever's HD concealer in 335 and I ran out and decided to use this u
ntil I can get to a Sephora. This works much better than MUFE's concealer! I've been using this ever since, but it is hard to find. I use the medium shade and am a NC42. I finally
found them online at Drugstore.com!

finally ! A cheap concealer that comes in deeper shades than other drugstore concealers. I am really impressed at how natural this looks to conceal under eye darkness, I am NC-42 so i picked up the shade medium. This shade is about 1 shade lighter than my skin tone which makes it perfect to brighten up any darkness. Goodbye white ring around eyes and no more putting foundation over the concealer to darken it =]. I also love how nicely this blends, it is quite creamy and doesn't tug on the skin when applied directly. This cost me $5 , so very affordable. I was about to buy a NARS stick concealer since they have my shade as well, but after finding this I think I won't need to. Great product, and a lifesaver for us tan and dark skinned people =).

kind of afraid I wont be able to find this again. I found it in a random bin at kmart today. Tried it out the coverage is AWESOME. I usually use benefit erase paste ((25$)) and this is very comparable as far as great coverage goes and for 3.99$ you cant beat that. Now I can't speak as far as lasting power because I have yet to test that but initially I am very impressed.

I am NC43, I also have melasma. My MAC, Loreal, Revlon and all the other foundations wasn't covering up the dark patches. My face always looked to dark, to messed up. So after reading the reviews, I went and got the only one available Medium Dark. I tried using a brush with this, it just got streaky and the patches showed. Finger tips and dotting and blending did not work either. So I passed the stick straight over the patches, no blending, and miracle it worked. Now my face and neck is the same colour. My problem is my face is naturally darker than my neck because of the patches. Everyone who saw me complimented me on the look. Some powder brushed on, and good to go, it lasted whole day and well into the night. Slight creasing under the eyes, but I don't normally wear eyecream. Great buy.

Let's face it, I'm a sucker for cosmetics. I don't buy my cosmetics from MAC, or those other expensive brands. But, this drugstore concealer...it's pretty bad. One, the colors on the package is misleading. Two, I was hoping for a creamy stick concealer. It is still not creamy when I warm it up with my fingers. It's also very hard to blend, and it creases under my eyes. I also tried on my blemishes. BIG MISTAKE. It broke me out. And the coverage isn't so great either. I was very dissapointed.

It is verrry easy to use, it has great coverage and sometimes I just rub it over key spots, slap on some powder and I'm flawless!
Really great buy!

I was looking forever for this, wanting to try Milani concealer, and what do you know, I find both this AND the cover cream at my local K-Mart! Needless to say I snatched up the closest color to my skin tone that I could find, which was actually the darkest color there, Medium. They had light and light-medium, which I find weird, because on their site they only start with medium, then medium-dark, onto dark, then deep. Well, perhaps if they had a medium-dark I should have snatched it up, because medium was a tad too light for me. Actually I think I'm between colors, because the previous reviewer likened the medium-dark to NC43, and I am NC42. (I never like my concealer, which goes under my eyes, to be any darker than my skin.) Anyway, the medium wasn't TOO bad of a match, so I tried it on. The coverage was okay--but nothing near what I want under my eyes. I have dark under eye circles, and I mean DARK. This might be okay to use if you have slight--very slight--pigmentation issues, or if you have subtle darkness under your eyes. But if you have severe pigmentation issues, blemishes, or under-eye circles--like me--this is not the concealer for you. It's slightly buildable but I found that, as with any concealer, it will settle into lines if you apply too much. I actually thought the cover cream had a lot better coverage, but I tried the shade "deep beige" that I found at K-Mart, and it was way too light. (Also another weird thing--they don't list this color on Milani's site! There are deeper colors listed on their site which I think would actually suit me.) So if you can find a color that's good for you in the cover cream, I say, go for it.

I got this in medium dark. It looked like a good match, but I got home and compared it to my NC 45 Studio Stick foundation and realized they look exactly the same. Oh well. I don't mind that I got it a little bit too dark to be a concealer because I can use it as a quick cover-up when I don't want to wear too much because it blends well enough for that. Maybe next time I'll pick up the medium shade. Overall it's very nice and only $4.49 from Walgreens. I'm sure it's even cheaper at Walmart or Target. The downside is that it doesn't come in lighter colors:
medium, medium dark, dark, and deep dark I think. But I actually like that it has deeper tones since it was easy to find something for me. Maybelline always seems to be out of darker shades and I can never find one for me, or they just don't make any...I don't really know. But I'm glad I bought this. It's very nice and creamy. :)
EDIT: I forgot to mention that I am NC 42 and I use NC 45 to contour. So that's why it's a little bit too dark, but it's still fine.
