Coverstick Corrector Concealer is a dated, oil- and wax-based formula that is too greasy to stay put for long, and it creases easily. It also tends to look too thick and heavy on skin, even when blended thoroughly. Maybelline claims this is their #1-selling concealer, and while that may be true in volume, it is not so in performance, especially when compared to their other concealers.

Maybelline is one of the best-known and most recognized mass-market makeup lines in the world—it's available in 90 countries. Throughout its long history, which began in 1915 when T. L. Wilson founded the company and named it after his sister, Mabel, and Vaseline (which he combined with coal dust to concoct a mascara for her), the company has prided itself on bringing innovative products to the marketplace. L'Oreal purchased the company in early 1996 and that's when things really started getting much better. Both companies specialize in offering a large selection of lipsticks, nail polishes, and mascaras, and many of their foundations have the same strengths and weaknesses (smooth textures and finishes plus the inclusion of sunscreens that are often without much-needed UVA-protecting ingredients).

The powders, several mascaras, pencils, matte-finish concealers, and Superstay Lipcolor are impressive and inexpensive. Although L'Oreal remains the more sophisticated and refined of the two lines (and now they have credible products, not just sleek ads, to back this assertion), Maybelline's latest urban image is a positive step, as many of their latest launches have been innovative without resorting to "been-there, done-that" gimmicks. Price-wise, Maybelline is the least expensive of the L'Oreal-owned cosmetic lines (which also includes Lancome, Biotherm, Vichy, and Kiehl’s), and smart shoppers will note the similarities among brands that, with conscientious shopping, can really save you money without sacrificing quality or performance.

    Just say no!
    • If it doesn't work your wasting your money so it's not a good deal. Color correctors never do their job successfully. Never! So I say follow Nancy Raegan's advice and just say no! I tried one from Estée Lauder years ago and trying to get my skin not to look green even with my foundation and blend well was impossible!

    Not so bad
    • I bought this on a whim to combat the redness in my skin (I use Paula's Choice as well as highly rated products for skincare, but it's just something I have to deal with). My mother had great success using a peach color corrector under her eyes, so I picked up this green one in hopes it would help with my redness. I typically use it in small amounts, and blend well before applying foundation. For that reason, I haven't noticed it fading; you just need to seal it in with foundation is all!
