Review of Shiseido The Makeup Corrector Pencil by jiney17
This is the smartest idea ever! It's a concealer in a pencil form, perfect for carrying around in your bag since it won't ever leak and is really tiny and lightweight. The pencil point is also perfect for covering up small blemishes or marks (I normally have to use a lipstick brush to achieve that kind of precision when I use a liquid or cream concealer). It's not as hard as I thought it'd be, given the previous reviews. The texture is dry, but still slightly creamy and can be easily blended on moist or slightly oily skin. I never had a problem with it not depositing color. I have this in 2 and it's a light/medium sandy beige color that is maybe a touch too dark, but looks okay once I've blended it a bit (light, yellow undertones. Probably NC20-ish or so). It has surprisingly good lasting power too, even without setting it with powder. Instant HG!
ETA: Took off a lippie because I noticed that the color is just a bit too orangey/warm on my skin these days. It blends in and looks okay with a dusting of powder, but it's not perfect. I still like and use this item, but wish it came in a shade between 1 and 2.
