This product is tricky.
It is prone to caking and creasing, it is hard to blend, and the stick is prone to breaking while using it.
That said, it is actually possible to get a decent look with this, it's just not easy.

So, I bought this because of the price and I was looking to try out a new concealer. This is an alright product, for the price, anyway. It doesn't cover as well as other concealers I've used, but it does go on smooth and blend in easily. It also is very light. But I think the light weight formula is the reason it doesn't cover well enough.
Overall, it's an alright product. I'd re-purchase again if I really needed a new concealer and was tight on cash.

This concealer is okay for the price. When you first get it it's Great, It just doesn't cover as much as i'd like, stay very well,or blend easily with me.

I have been using Maybelline cover stick for years and was looking for another great concealer. This wasn't it however. The light color is chalky and pasty. When applied, the stick is very hard to blend. Then when it's finally applied, it beads up on my skin. It also broke and fell on the floor when I was trying to apply it. This was pretty much worthless and a waste of money.

Its a good and bad product. It does really well to cover the bag but DO NOT add so much because it will crease and look cakey, only saying this because i have very dry skin, ive had that experence. Also it does will to cover blemishes but i found that it broke me out :( so only to the under eyes it goes. It is super creamy and there is alot of product! For only 2 bucks it is a really good buy (:

I picked this up accidently, as I was searching for the more raved about cover stick in Yellow. I'm NC25 and this is not yellow, nor pink toned, but basically a white shade. It would work for the under-eyes to brighten it up. But I find it to not be as opaque as I would like. It's easy to blend but this sheers out the color a lot, requiring a lot of layering which leads to settling in fine lines. Its very creamy so doesn't ever really look cakey. But I have found a way to make this work beautfiully until I land on the yellow stick-I use it to outline the U hollow shape UNDER my eye bags. Not the lash line, but that shadow an inch below, that reaches to mid pupil from the side of your nose, that. It cancels this line out, making the actual BAGS DISAPPEAR, you just need the right salmony full coverage shade to fill in the area right above!
PS. Be careful with the flimsy lid, it can peel off a layer of the sides of the lipstick shape & possibly even dent it. Also, as creamy as this appears, I would imagine it to melt quick in hot window/car areas.

HG. Dirt cheap, easy to blend and effective. Plus, it lasts a full eight hours on me despite my overactive sweat glands.
I have pale Asian skin and I love the fact that NYC makes yellow-toned concealers and foundation. Other budget-friendly make up brands all seem to have pink-toned products.
I think I've bought these - yes, I've used up many tubes by now - for less than $1.50 each. It's definitely worth a try.

Honestly, I didn't have high expectations for this product when I purchased it, but was excited nonetheless. I got in the car and put it under my eyes, even though I already had foundation and powder on. It just looked cakey and creasey and didn't really do much. I was so disappointed. When I woke up this morning I figured I would give it another shot. I went along with my normal skin care routine (Purpose face wash, St. Ive's Blemish Clearing Apricot scrub-which I use every other day, aloe vera gel as moisturizer & then my Clinique All About Eyes Rich) and then I put this on my dark circles and on the inner bone by my eye and nose. I blended with my fingers lightly and patted it. Then I took my Cover Girl Simply Powder foundation and patted it on top & finished my face. It looks REALLY good! Like really really good. I couldn't believe it. It was creamy, but not too creamy. The perfect consistency. I remember having the previous formula where it was super waxy and chalky like the consistency of that cheap clay you make things with in elementary school. I think you really need an intense moisturizer applied before hand to make this look so nice. But, considering it was $1.79, I can totally afford to keep spending $29.00 on a tiny tub of cream that lasts over a year. I'll buy again & again until they change formulas or discontinue.
If you moisturize, buy it. You won't be disappointed.
EDIT: So, this concealer does not stay put at all. You have to keep reapplying, which causes breakouts. After using this product for a while, I began to miss my old Super Stay concealer by Maybelline. I realized, this concealer doesn't even compare. I wouldn't repurchase.

This product disappointed me. It is super creamy and seems pgmented but you can't blend it out, as it just removes all of the color. It also applys patchily, so it just doesn't cover well, even if I have moisturized, etc. its too light for my skin tone as well.
The packaging is like a lipstick, and it would be handy for touchups, but if it gets slightly hot it melts and breaks.
I just don't get the coverage I want.

I was pleasently surprised with this concealer. I needed a cheap concealer right away so I just grabbed this. I don't really blend this in because it just rubs blends in a little too well, so I put a few abs on a blemish or under my eyes and just pat it in a few times, and it looks perfect!

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.

This product is only $2, which is great. It goes on smoothly and has a nice, creamy texture. It blends well and comes in a cool little lipstick-like tube. It covers blemishes really well for me!

This concealer does not blend at all, it sits on top of the skin. Highlights blemishes. Formula is cheap, too soft and does not last. Packaging is normal for a concealer stick.

I would give the overall rating a zero if i could
This doesn;t conceal my dark circles what so ever ! Its thick and melts easily, and rough on your eyes.
and when you put it on its invisible so no difference what so ever !

This looked thick on, but as soon as I blended, it disappeared. Thus... did not do anything for me. RETURN!

I've tried the expensive concealers and this product puts them to shame. I love the consistency and it goes on thick enough to cover my blemishes. For the price ($1.99 at most drug stores) you can't go wrong. This is a staple in my makeup collection!

The old formula was 100x better than the new one. The bought a new stick after my old one ran out, the formula is too dry and "light" is too light even on my pale NC15 skin. Also the new formula is chalky and has no coverage. Basically useless!

I got this concealer stick in "Light" for $2.50...It is really cakey, definitely not good for under eye circles, okay for blemishes. I prefer the NYC liquid concealer.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Normal, Fair, Warm Hair: Blond, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Blue
Bought today and so far so good. Very creamy and coverd my dark circles pretty darn good; better than my Smashbox concealer. I have tried many concealers and this is just as good as my other highend concealers. Would reccomend.
