Review of Shiseido The Makeup Corrector Pencil by mudpud
Shiseido continues to be the best option for me in terms of foundations, powders, and concealers, and this product is no exception. I use it to cover acne scars from those pimples (cystic?) that last months and leave discolored spots. The #2 (Medium Natural) color is perfect for my MMM yellow-toned skin, and I don't even have to blend the concealer in after dotting it on. A few quick, short dabs w/ the tip is enough. That said, I would not use this for undereye circles (not the right consistancy). For reference, I'm not terribly acne-prone and have found a skincare routine that wards off a lot of the inevitable monthly breakouts I used to get, so I'm not sure how this would work over current breakouts. I'll be experimenting more w/ this as I think the pencil form makes it fairly versatile (e.g., it's very easily applied around the nose).
Retails for $15.50 at my local counter.
