This is a really good concealer for the price. Essence has really come out with top notch products for such a low price point. Covers well, has yellow undertones so good for dark circles. Creamy texture so easy application. Can get cakey if not blended properly. I do like this product but I prefer liquid concealers and highly recommend for people to try the Essence 16 hour concealer.

This is the best concealer I have ever tried... Then again, it's only like the second or third. Despite my lack of experience, this is a great product. It covers everything and the packaging is very convenient for throwing in a makeup bag since its small and not bulky. However, this does have it's flaws. If you put to much on, you really have to blend... And then blend some more or it will look cakey. I bought the color 05 Matt Beige and it's a pretty good match for my medium-yellow toned skin. For the price, it's definitely worth a try. I just wouldn't repurchase since I'd like to try some other concealers out.

This is an unbelievably good cover stick. I got it due to reviews here, so thanks MUAers! I got it in 04 (true nude) which is perfect for my light-medium skintone. It is incredibly smooth and has great coverage, and is matte like the name says. I think it would look great with YSL Touche Eclat over it, have to try it out soon! For 1,99 Euros it really can't be beaten, the quality is just insane for the price you pay.
EDIT: Every time I use this underneath my eyes, it covers my dark circles very well, but it also makes my under-eye look gross from close-up. It doesn't look necessarily dry but it looks like there are very thin, short rolled-up flakes all over my under eye area. I guess I need to experiment more with it, but I've tried using a primer underneath it and I might be using too much product, but if I use less it doesn't cover up circles well! First world problems :P

I absolutely love this product. Unfortunately, I can't get it in my current location, so I had to wait months to be able to repurchase it. In the meantime, I tried so many other brands (Loreal, Maybelline etc) and none of them was as good as essence. It doesn't break me out, it covers beautifully, blends beautifully. I actually bought two to make sure that I won't run out of it. Great value for money.

For a low price it has a good coverage.

I thought this was going to be a crappy thing, since it was only $3.95 AUD, but since many people raved about it, I thought lets give it ago. Like $4 what could go wrong (note that the cost of make-up in Australia is crazy expensive!) ? But wow. This thing is amazing. It covers my acne, redness, under eye circles and scars, and the colour Matt Beige is perfect for my skin. It's good for on the go since the packaging is so small and cute. I really love it and of course I will buy it again and again. X

Well you get what you pay for. This concealer doesn't cover anything, it goes on way too sheer. Doesn't blend easily, looks cakey. Limited shade selection makes it difficult to find a good color match. I feel self-conscious with this on. Just a low-quality product overall. Wouldn't buy again and don't recommend.

This is one of my favorite concealers, for a stick concealer it is very creamy, has great coverage and although it is yellow toned it worked fine on my under-eye circles. It is matte and lasted a long time on my skin. I went through this product pretty fast tho because it is so creamy, but for 2.49 or so, I didn't expect a lot of product. I am planning on repurchasing this soon, as I am almost done the one I am working on now.

I thought this product was great for the value, but honestly its lacking. It doesnt have a smooth application which I find difficult to like.
It does have a yellowish sheen to it, so the only thing I use this for is covering up blemishes.

I was impressed a now much I like the product considering the price.I will agree with the other reviewer that this is very yellow toned but then I just add a pinkish powder on top and that off sets the yellow tint.This really does cover without too much product..I have tried with without brush and my fingers and I well the fingers are better for application..
Creasing with this does happen if not set with a powder.This maybe because I have under eye wrinkles and have had since I was 20 and it got in there so I took a q-tip to smooth them out and that helped most of the problem.

I absolutely love this. It covers up my dark circles and any other dark spots so easily and blends great. This is definitely my number one go to concealer, and for only $2.49- so good.

a well covering matte concealer, stays on long, doubles as foundation.

Cheap, great coverage, and creamy. 3C rule ;)
Price: $3.35 CAD
Texture: thick but creamy
Stick concealers in general have a tendency to be cakey or dry. This, however, was not the case. Creamy, crease-proof and buildable, this has to be the best all-around cover-up I've used used! You can even use this under your eyes unless you have super dry skin which may not work well with the thick formulation.
For under $5 this is a definite steal

I like this more than I like my MAC concealer, and at a quarter of the price. I use it on any dark spots that acne scars have left behind. It does a great job of covering them up. It's not uber long lasting, but I still find the lasting power is better than MAC's. The colour match is perfect and blends right into my skin. If I were to use it for the under eye area, I'd recommend using a brush instead of using it directly, as under eye area is sensitive and delicate.

Aside from my twist up tube BREAKING after 3 uses, the actual product is alright.
I don't use this on under eye circles...it won't work at covering those babies. I DO use it all over the rest of my face. It's very creamy and It covers fairly well (though I don't have a whole lot to cover...just a bit of redness on nose, chin, cheeks.) and my face seems to "drink it up"...it just blends in so smoothly. It doesn't cover perfectly, just kind of blurs my redness so that my face seems like it's skin-tone is even. I apply powder all over, after using this concealer and it stays all day.
It's super cheap.
If you're looking for a drug store concealer, I'd try this before anything else...it may just be what you are looking for. My advice, get a good brand name concealer for those big, tricky cover-ups, like dark circles and pimples, and this little cheap baby for the little stuff. Save $$ YAY!

I am fair complected and the shade 01 matt sand is a perfect match to my skintone (shade color revlon colorstay buff). This is not heavy duty coverage, more of a medium. but I still say perfect for daytime. Love love this product. Can't complain!

I love this concealer. They are dirt cheap and have decent packaging. Regarding the color, the two I own are perfect for me. I have a somewhat yellow skin tone and have never had luck finding a concealer that didn't look pink on me. I have this concealer in matt beige and matt sand and both blend in flawlessly depending how tan I am. I think matt beige is the darker of the two. I think these are better at hiding redness or blemishes. As an undereye concealer, they tend to sink into fine lines. I have found a fix for this though. I blend them with a tiny bit of my Tart Illuminating Serum. Overall, if you have yellow undertones, definitely check these out; you aren't losing much if you don't like them.

I purchased this product in 04 True Nude and it is the best! The coverage is light-to-medium, so if you need a heavy-duty concealer I definitely would not recommend this(I've heard Hard Candy's Glamoflauge works wonders for heavy-duty).
The shade is a bit light, but that works perfectly for lightening my undereye area. For the price, this concealer is just terrific. Definitely my HG!
I read a review before-hand and heard that the product has fallen out of the tube before--- I'm completely okay with this considering the price point! I'll just re-melt the product (see fixing broken lipstick) and re-attach it. Definite repurchase.

I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone, especially if you have almost snow white skin like I do. The lightest shade was too dark and orange, the coverstick itself dried out my skin. Bad product.

Purchased this is the nude shade. I am a light-medium, cool toned face with freckles. The light seemed too light so chose this based on a swipe on my hand. (yeah I know it's not always a good thing or match for the face but it worked) It has a smooth light consistency so I'll see how it all holds up and update review later.
