When I wear eyeshadow, I use this to clean up the area for sharper application. I also use it on my brow bone and eyelids for when I want to just wear mascara only. I like the formula. Easy to work with.

The only stick type concealer I've purchased, other than this, is the classic Maybelline one, which I've been using forEVER The Maybelline one stays in my purse for touch-ups of blemishes in the event my foundation wears off. It's great for that. But it isn't so great for the under-eye area because it is a bit too waxy and the thicker consistency tends to tug delicate under-eye skin. I decided to pick this N.Y.C. stick concealer up mostly because of price. I bought "Light" which turns out to be too light even for my fair skin. (I hate Target's cosmetic isle lighting; it actually makes it harder not easier for me to figure out what is a match for my skin, but that's another story.)

This N.Y.C. concealer stick is the opposite of the Maybelline stick concealer. It isn't quite as buildable but it blends much more easily, probably because it contains vitamin e and/or less wax. I can use this on my under-eye area and top it with my better matched foundation for a brighter eye-area look. I do wish this product was made in the U.S., Canada or the UK but it is made in China like too many low-end cosmetics these days. On the flip side, this is not a lip product that I might ingest to some extent (eating/drinking) so I'm not going to ditch it for that reason alone. In conclusion, I do find this less effective at covering blemishes but also more easy to blend. If Medium turns out to be a better color match it might serve to be more buildable. For angry red blemishes, I would say "meh" because it isn't as opaque as Maybelline's stick concealer. For brightening the eye area, though? This definitely does the job.

This concealer is great to conceal dark cirlces under my eyes, and for some people good for hiding imperfections.

This is my favortie drugstore concealer. Stick concealers are my favortie, because they cover more and blend easily. I use this under my eyes and on trouble areas (red spots, blemishes, zits etc.) and I don't have any complaints about it. It covers well, and I never have to touch it up. Considering the $2 price tag, and coverage, I think this should be in every girl's makeup bag!

I actually love this concealer as a touch up tool for spot-concealing blemishes; I generally like to keep an inexpensive concealer stick for spot jobs in my bag and this does the job well, for a great price. I've never used it on my under eyes but I would imagine that it would be difficult unless your undereyes are super oily. I do sometimes have a hard time finding it, however, and end up replacing it with Wet N Wild's comparable but slightly more expensive product, which is a little creamier and sometimes seems to have better coverage.

I remember having this product in high school and when I went searching for a cheap yellow concealer in a hurry, I picked this up. It is not very smooth and just not very good quality. Maybe I'm older and wiser now? :) Pass on this. There are better drugstore choices. Even Maybelline's, although not amazing, is much better consistency.

This is one of my least favorite drugstore products ever. I wore it under my eyes and on blemishes one day at school and every body kept looking at me weird and saying my "under the eye area" looked really dark. I looked in the mirror and saw that it had completely dried out my skin- that's not normally dry at all. It had also enhanced the darkness under my eye rather then covering them up. It also gave me wrinkles under my eyes which I've NEVER noticed~I'm only seventeen and I have very young looking skin~ and I had to walk around like that until I got home. This is just gross. It made me look scary. Please save your money.

This is horrible. Just a dab makes undereyes look cakey and wrinkley. When I put it on my zits it makes them look crusty even after I exfoliate and moisturize. It has very little coverage. I'm so sad, I really wanted this to work

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.
