let me just get this out of the way, YES there is a difference between elf's "cover" and "color" sticks, and the difference is exactly that. the color sticks are meant to add color, and the cover sticks are meant to cover it. elf's claim for this product is "great for using on under eye circles, blemishes, and as a primer. Getting a clear fresh face has never been so easy." for $1, you honestly can't beat it. a little goes a looooong way, it creases like none other, and can get cakey quickly. i like to use it under my foundation to cover up some redness if i really need heavy duty coverage. great for blemishes.
it has a smell, the light fruity/floral one that most of elf's other products have (in case you don't like cosmetics that have a fragrance). there is a decent shade selection too, which is very nice.
for $1, it gets the job done.
