Cover Stick

Cover Stick products have been available on the cosmetic market for more than two decades and are widely used by many women. Some preparations come as a liquid and others are available in a stick formulation. The major use of Cover Stick formulations has been to hide or erase the very fine lines and skin discolorations. Cover Stick is often combined with other makeup products to diminish signs of aging. The NYC New York Color mission is to build a leading lifestyle that excites women with prestige quality cosmetics at an affordable price. The New York Color Cover Stick was primarily developed as a Concealer of skin blemishes. It can be used on its own to hide wrinkle, blemishes, red spots and fine lines, but it is limited to the correction of very fine lines. When applied around the eyes, the product can help hide the dark circles and it can even out skin tones as well.

The manufacturer’s website claims that New York Color Corrective Cover Sticks, when used regularly, can produce a flawless face that is appealing. The site also claims that this product will not pull or tug a user’s eye, which can traumatize the sensitive surrounding skin. The Cover Stick comes in various shades and blends well. The end result is claimed to be a face that looks natural and healthy all day.

Product Details

NYC New York Color Cover Stick fails to mention a full list of its ingredients, except it does mention that the product contains vitamin A and E.

The Good

  • Excellent Tip section on applying makeup and hiding skin blemishes.
  • Good customer service.
  • Website provides makeup tips.
  • Can buy this product in most department stores.
  • Inexpensive.
  • Excellent testimonials.

The Bad

  • No photos.
  • No full list of ingredients.
  • May require a lot of product to hide all a user’s blemishes.
  • Is primarily a concealing product, not a wrinkle fighter or even a preventative protector.

The Bottom Line

NYC Color Cover Stick is relatively cheap and can conceivably hide very fine lines or blemishes. Today, the major thrust of most Cover Stick products is anti-aging but this product has no anti-aging ingredients. However, this is not a complete negative. The NYC New York Cover Stick was designed to hide fine lines and to that end it does a good job. Sometimes when it is excessively applied, it does create a big blob, which is a common makeup complaint. However, the majority of testimonials on this product are favorable. It should be essential to mention what are all the ingredients in the product. In today’s business world, it is becoming necessary for the consumer to know what he/she is actually using. Unfortunately, an ingredient list was not found. In any case, the NYC Cover Stick is widely available, is relatively cheap and does a decent job. For those who just want to temporarily hide a few lines or pigment spots, this is the right product. For those who want a more long-term solution for their fine lines or wrinkles, there are many other products better formulated to meet these goals.
