This is a fantabulous concealer in my opinion. Well, my under eyes are oily (not extremely oily but just oily), this concealer is quite dry but it doesn't pull my skin when I apply it. Because the concealer is quite dry and my under eyes are quite oily, it's just a good combination. I bought this in the shade Medium and it's the correct shade for me. The best part of it is the price, it's cheap and so affordable. I gave it 5 stars because considering about the price, the packaging is quite good (nothing special, but it's not bad) and the formula of it is amazing for its price.

I was not impressed. The colors run really light and the darker colors are harder to find. The color I bought was too light but appeared way darker int he packaging which is misleading. This product appears chalky and beads on my face. The coverage is light and non-buildable. It didn't cover a light freckle and just highlighted my dark circles instead of covering them. The only pro of this product is that it's cheap.

I guess it's true what they say: the drier the concealer, the higher the coverage. This NYC concealer is very dry without pulling the skin. So dry, in fact, that it cannot be used alone; but works well blended with foundation or liquid concealer. I use the lightest shade to cover my dark circles. I have used this product about as long as I have used cosmetics and keep purchasing. I have occasionally switched to other brands such as Avon, Maybelline, Essence and Rimmel; but still keep coming back to this.

I got this concealer in the shade medium. This was about $2 at walmart, so extremely cheap. I bought this because of the good reviews I reaad about this product. I bought this probably...9 months ago? When I came to do this review I was thinking 'what happened to all the good reviews!!???' . For me this acually worked out pretty great! first, it was cheap, CHEAP. second, this actually gave me good coverage for my dark circles. I'd say the coverage is a medium-buildable coverage. I like the thick consistency that it delivers, I warm it up by rubbing it on the back of my hand until it feels creamy then I'll use the warmed up mixture and apply it with my fingers. I find this concealer...to change in texture throughout the day. First when I apply it on, it just feels thick, and smooth. Then after 5 minutes is looks slightly cakey, then it dries to a thin, smooth feel. moisturize, primer (I subsitute sunscreen )and powder, and this concealer will stay on and look great through the day. Also this doesn't work as well for any dry patches of skin, say around your nose. Overall, I recommend you go buy this concealer, especially if you're on a budget.

I actually like this cover up alot. It goes on creamy and smooth the colour choices for me are perfect as well as the price. I don't find it gives me that heavy cover up look and works well all day. It also works great for an eye shadow primer. My shadow lasts all day which is a nice bonus.

I picked this up because it was so cheap and I like some NYC's other products, but I'm not impressed. It does almost nothing for my under eye circles. It's works okay on blemishes and and zits... but doesn't last long and is very difficult to blend.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Normal, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
I don't really like to spend much on beauty products, so I got this. Honestly, I don't think it's too bad! I like it, it blends well on my under eye circles when I use a sponge. It also works pretty well on blemish's, and doesn't break me out. I'll continue buying because of the price:)

i actually quite like the concealer. i got the regular one in fair. i just bought it recently and my first thought was: the packaging SUCKS but at least it's cheap. the day i bought it i melted it down into a little container, and now i am very happy with it. i am not one to need that much coverage, i apply it with a foundation brush lightly under my eyes and around my nose. it gives me the coverage i need but it gets a little cakey quite quickly. i know there are better concealers out there, but it's good for the money.

I got the normal colored one and the green one. Here is my review:
Normal: The normal one is okay. It does cover up my undereye circles okay, but isn't that good of a formula. I might buy it again but would prefer better concealers.
Green: I haven't tried it on any zits, but when I use it to try to cover up general redness on my face, it gives my face a green tint no matter how much I blend. :( I will not buy it again unless it works amazingly on zits....

My dark circles and blemishes are fairly light, so this concealer works to fade them a bit. I find that this product works best when blended with a dry ring finger in downward dabbing motions. I tried using a brush, but the bristles just absorbed the concealer.
This product is about what you'd expect for the price -- for me, it works okay around my eyes but it doesn't do much else around the rest of my face. It tends to slide off very easily and be oily.
The formula is extremely oily and can look cakey if not blended thoroughly. The product comes in a lipstick-like tube that has lasted me over a month, which is better than more expensive concealers.
Overall, this product is not good: the formula is crappy and short lived; however, the product itself should last you a while. I would recommend going for a better concealer if you can afford it. I paid like, $1.75 for this and for that price -- you should know what you're getting.

So i have one of these in the regular fair shade and i have the green one, i'll start with the green, i bought it thinking it would be good for blemishes and such to take the redness out, but no matter how much i sit there and blend it out it still looks green! Even after i put my foundation over top of it, it still looks like i randomly have a green patch on my skin. I wouldnt recommend that one at all. The regular one isnt much better, i have it in my purse for spot touchups and stuff, its pretty dry, can make things look cakey. Im not really liking that one either :\ I dont think i paid more than like 2 bucks each for them, but still. I dont really use them at all.

Got this in yellow for my dark circles but hated this concealer... if you're thinking of getting this, don't! Because its only like 2 bucks, i'd normally say try it out, it might work, but i know it will do nothing for you so don't bother! Its thick, cakey and doesn't stay put (especially with oily skin). If only makeup could be this cheap and actually work!

I'm what you'd call "emo". Either that, or a sad looking version of "scene". Even though technically I don't label myself, the emo/scene culture is what inspires most of my wardrobe. I really love having pale lips, as well as a pale complexition.
Henceforth I bought this as a cheap, easy way to help make my lips look pale-ish. I apply this on my lips to get that "vampire-who-just-woke-up-from-the-dead" look.
This stuff dries out my lips really bad. I've tried using lip gloss on top of it, but it smears the concealer and makes it look shitty.
So now I just use my foundation instead. It still dries out my lips, but not as bad. I'm so used to wearing foundation on my lips that by now, the dryness doesn't even matter. However back when I used this concealer, it sure as hell did (if that tells you anything).
This shit doesn't work good as a concealer for underneath the eyes, either. But it makes a sick base for eyeshadow. A little bit of liquid foundation with some of this concealer on top will help your eyeshadow last alll day. Especially if the shadow's applied wet.
So there you have it. Just my two cents. Take it or leave it.

Glides on easily and easy to blend. However, tends to "sink" into the fine lines around the eyes. Well, the price is cheap and you get what you paid for.

It covers okay, but goes on cakey and not smoothly. I bought the cover stick in Light (781A) just for general concealer and because my budget has changed. This isn't worth the money that you may save. It tends to make me break out with small red pimples the day after I wear it. Perhaps it is clogging my pores. Spend the extra few dollars to buy the Covergirl wand concealer.

Thank goodness this was cheap! I use concealers daily, and this is not one I'll be using! I saw some good reviews and thought positively, but this thing covers nothing. It's thin, not pigmented, and won't cover a darn thing. So save your money! It's barely worth the less than $2 I paid as a concealer. Luckily, as per some of the other reviewers, I'll just be using this as an eyelid primer instead. So at least it serves a purpose, but concealing ain't it!

So i have bought all the coversticks and here is what i find:
The yellow tinted one that is used to conceal under eye circles seems to work but what you have to do it apply it under your foundation because it blends terribly but works somewhat well under your foundation. The green one that is used to conceal redness, don't waste your time or money it sucks. It doesn't do anything other then irritate your red patches more. The actual coverstick in light i really enjoy i use it for what the green one is used for it's really nice so avoid the green coverstick.

Well, the saying you get what you pay for rings very true with this product. I got it in green to try and cover a mark from a blemish that hasn't quite faded away yet. This is thick, doesn't blend well, the packaging sucks, it doesn't do what it's supposed to. There's really nothing good I can say about this product. I will not be repurchasing.

I got the miny one of this concealer because it came with a bronzer that I got.I liked that one but then it broke so I went and I got another one.... GRRR! Its not nearly as creamy as the mini one, though I'm not sure why. It comes right off and its very tough to blend. I'm not a big fan. I won't be repurchasing

I bought the Yellow & Green concealer a few months ago. They are TERRIBLE! :( The green concealer was a waste of my money. The yellow covers under-eye circles well, but it lasts about 2 minutes. I'm very unhappy with the product!
