I use Shiseido The Makeup Corrector Pencil to line my waterline - gives the same effect as a white pencil as far as brightening the eye area and cancels out the redness that is there naturally.
I don't use this as a true concealor except for gently marking around my freshly applied brows to tighten the lines and make it neater. (Shiseido makes an awesome brow pencil also).
I give this a 5 - but I have never tried to cover blemishes or conceal pigmentation. I will purchase again!
I got this in 2 "Medium" to cover blemishes and acne scars that the The Concealer wouldn't cover. The Corrector Pencil has a thick wax like texture that doesn't dry and make the dry and peeling skin look worse than it already is. But it has a poor lasting power, in ~4 hours it's gone and I have to reapply. Also it's not sticking to skin very well, when I accidentally touch a place where I have The Corrector Pencil applied it just slides off. Maybe it need fixing powder. I read that a lot of people here use it around eyes, I tried, but it's too heavy and waxy for my eyes, they look 10 years older instantly, it also settles into the finest lines resulting in a very nasty, cakey look. But I like the color, matches my skin perfectly.
Hello i would like to find out if anyone has the ingredients list for the shiseido corrector pencil
i love it! i usually use this to cover a few red marks i have on my face since i get pimples and i can't help but to pop them. -_- it also helps to brighten up my eye area. i can't get the, "eraser pencil," here since they don't have it in canada but i use it for that purpose also. kind of lame, i know, lol.
luv this product been using it for years....best in concealing pitted tiny acne scars and for giving you that fresh look when applied near the corners of the eyes......
Great pencil to cancel out your natural lipcolor before you line and apply lipstick. Use sparingly and blend it in with your finger. I also use it if I am only wearing lip gloss to clean up and define my lower lip.
This concealer pencil is excellent for covering up little scars, pimples, pigmentation around the nose, and brightening up around the eyes.
It looks considerably more natural than other concealers (which in my opinion can often appear cakey, and make the imperfection appear even more obvious).
The staying power is average, however as it's simply a little pencil, it's no problem to touch up during the day. It is ideal for use over or beneath foundation.
The consistency is quite soft, and I had no issue with it 'dragging' the skin around my eyes.
For a little pencil, it's quite costly, but I have been using it for six months so far, and I've yet to buy a new one. Therefore, the price is somewhat justified.
I love this pencil! I use it as an eye brightener, not as a concealer (the color is too light for my medium olive skin!) I never leave home without applying this on my waterline, and I keep it with me in my clutch for touch-ups (staying time is decent, but I enjoy re-applying anyway), and I love how healthy and bright (whiter sclera) my eyes look with this. I hate how it is $16 at Sephora on my student budget, but I don't wear a lot of makeup in general, so it will last me a good long time.
I've had the worst time covering my dark circles and I'm so relieved that I found this pencil! Covers my circles very nicely and doesn't migrate or emphasize fine lines at all. I would describe it as being a dry consistency which is exactly what I was looking for, since creamy or watery concealers just crease and pool in my fine lines. This does not work whatsoever for me on blemishes though, doesn't seem to cover them well and fades very quickly. Seems like I'm going against conventional wisdom here with preferring a a dry pencil to cover under my eyes and a cream concealer for blemishes, but somehow that's what works for me!
I have really dark circles and although I'm quite content with the concealer that I've been wearing (Armani's High Precision Retouch and Armani's Skin Retouch) sometimes when I'm really tired my waterline has this dark tint that makes me look still tired or ill even when I put on concealer, so I bought this pencil exclusively to apply on my waterline are and brighten up the whole eye area to look more rested as my final touch.
It does what it's supposed to, but it isn't anything to go ga-ga over and while I lucked out with their lighest shade, other skin tones won't be as lucky. It will last a long time, so I won't repurchase it.
