This concealer works really well at covering my natural redness and minor blemishes, but doesn't work extremely well under the eye area. Another thing is that it doesn't really stay too long on my skin, but gets a little better if you set it with powder.

Coverage is so-so, kind of hard to blend even with a finger, the brush fell off after like a month? This product was just disappointing.

I'm sorry but I logged in just to warn that person not to use this product in their waterline! The description says:
"The medicated formula has active Salicylic Acid & Tea Tree Oil to clear blemishes and reduce scarring."... and those can't be good for your eyes, and may in fact be dangerous.
I think lip & eye kohl (meant for waterline) pencils may be used interchangeably, but you need to be careful about using other types of products on vulnerable areas.

Reborn as a waterline eyeliner, this is fantastic. I lined both upper and lower lids and inner corners with this and hours later, I still had that bright eyed look.

Ehh...Doesn't really cover too well for me and the brush ends up taking alot of the concealer off, But this works great for lining the waterline, the texture is good and I love how convenient the packaging is

I received this product as a freebie from E.L.F. within an order that i had made. Honestly, I don't really care for this product. It doesn't conceal blemishes all that well. And, I don't fell that it really does anything to aid with healing them at all.

This concealer was a complete fail for me. I honestly try not to expect much from E.L.F makeup. The brush on the end ending up taking off all of my concealer. When I applied it without the brush the concealer lasted for about an hour, not to mention it didn't fully cover my dark circles to begin with. I also tried this in 3 different colors and none of them looked anywhere near my shade. You can tell you have cheap concealer on when you wear this.

Pencil concealer on one end, brush on the other-how convenient is that! The sharpener is built into the cap too. The sharpener a bit messy and loose, but for carrying around in bag this is a great idea. May buy an extra for o'night bag.

Love this stuff! I bought this just for covering blemishes, because I don't have dark circles or anything of the sort. i got this is medium, matches my face pretty nicely nut not my forehead (that's the darkest part of my face lol). covers the blemishes really well, along with reducing it to little or nothing at all! also, the blending brush is no joke, its really amazing. i will be repurchasing since it was only three dollars.

It is a gamble buying something online when you can't physically try out the product, but I needed a concealer and I got a 50% discount on this, so I figured I'd try it and at least if I hated it I wouldn't lose much money. And, erm...I hated it!
The UK site only had 3 colour selections; being very fair I naturally chose 'Fair', the lightest. The concealer I got looked MUCH darker than the concealer pictured on the site and just looked a terracotta colour on me. There is no way my concealer would match anyone with fair skin, unless they had a serious tan or were extremely heavy handed with the bronzer! Needless to say, this was useless.
Unfortunately, the only good thing I can say about this is that it provides excellent coverage; I can imagine it'd stay put for ages since it took a thorough wash to remove it.
I have other e.l.f products which I think are fantastic, such as the Studio Line brushes and blush, so I would recommend trying those. :)

$3 for a concealer (can usually be found for 50% off even!!) + concealer brush + sharpener + acne treatment ingredients like salicylic acid/tea tree oil...all in ONE product = LOVE!
Yes the brush takes up about 1/4 size of the pencil (so the amount of concealer seen can be deceitful but u dont need to carry a separate brush, plus it comes with a cap so keeps it hygienic!) its quite dense & semi-stuff, used in circular motions around blemishes really evens out the thick/creamy texture of the concealer. I'm NW20 & ''light'' is a great match for me. Easy to carry, I have one thrown in my car & purse at all times & have one for home :)
One lippie off for staying power, not the longest lasting concealer, so for special dates I keep this for touch-ups mainly not original application. Does this treat acne? NO but it sure minimizes redness/size over time, to the extent that I sometimes apply this at home instead of a pea size of toothpaste to do the same trick but look prettier ;)

love, love, love this concealer!
*Its light and not to long so its eay to carry around.
*It leaves a good even coverage which is perfect for my acne.
*The sharpener in the lid is so handy and clever.
*It doesnt have any harsh chemicals that make my skin react
My only problem with it is I found the brush at the other end pointless because it didnt blend it just took all my concealer off. It is a must have product.

The pencil is perfect! Its not to thick but at the same time it still gives your a good coverage and its also not to heavy to carry around everywhere for quick fixes. I personally don't like the blending brush at the end because I found that it either did nothing or just took the concealer off all together. It's easy to blend with either a brush or your finger and last's a long time.

I haven't had a lot of experience with lots of different concealers, but I discovered this one early on and I find I still go back to it the most. For a creme concealer, it's more firm than Benefit's Erase Paste, and much softer than most of the stick concealer offerings from the drugstore. The most comparable I've tried is Stila's Cover Up Stick, in terms of consistency.
It's a stick type concealer in pencil form. Softer than most stick concealers because the wood surrounding it keeps it from drying out. The drawback to the pencil form is that you don't get nearly as much product as with the usual stick type concealers. The thin pencil point, I found is good for concentrating the concealer on blemishes, I just draw a little circle around the pimple or scar and then blend inwards, then outwards. As with all concealers, the texture difference in your skin will still be there, but the redness is diminished enough for me to be happy about it. Because stick concealers(drugstore) are usually bigger, and a little dryer, this can be a bit harder to achieve. The creamy consistency is great to blend. This is the only type of concealer so far that I've finished AND rebought.
The sharpener works for what it is, I'm glad that it saves me the hassel of looking for a sharpener when I need it. In daily use I usually put the sharpener on the brush side, which I wash whenever I use it (not that often, I prefer fingers), and the brush cap on the concealer side, this keeps the sharpener from digging into the product too much. There's also the potential to lose a fair amount of product when sharpening the pencil. I just take the product that has been shaved off on the sharpener and mold it to the new tip of the pencil, since I don't really care if it's all that pointy, and the excess will be used up within the week. Clean the sharpener with a damp Q-tip.
For darkness around my mouth and nose I just draw up and down around the nose, and around the mouth and blend with my fingers. This works for under the eyes too (especially finals-induced panda eyes). I don't mind applying the pencil directly to the skin because tea tree oil is supposed to be antimicrobial. I don't think the 'acne fighting' ingredients do much in that dept, but I figure they must work at least enough to keep too much bacteria from growing in the day to day process.
For reference, I'm light-medium skinned asian, and I use the shade 'light' which I think used to be called 'honey', or something like that. In the ELF studio pressed powder I use 'sand' and Stila 'Tone' and 'Light' blended during the summer. The shade 'Light' blends enough into my skin tone that I can use it winter or summer, but I can usually get away with only concealer during the winter.
If you actually read all the way through this, Kudos to you!

the concealer pencil idea is brilliant! not bulky and very handy when youre on the go and need a quick fix. the coverage is medium-full which has been amazing for my acne!
i prefer to slather the stuff on my ring finger and pat it onto blemishes/redness. this helps me build it up and smooth it out, otherwise it can be cakey. that said, it can be a little thick for undereyes but not too bad. just use sparingly, gently pat with your finger, and problem solved.
i dont recommend using the pencil directly on your face. it can tug on ur skin and especially your pimples. also that method isnt too sanitary. theres salicylic acid in there which claims to help with blemishes, but i dont see any difference. no big deal though.
packaging is terrible. the cap/sharpener, although helpful, is really messy. it also shaves a lot of product off so you run out fast. i'd prefer more concealer product at the end, rather than that useless blender.

I was looking for a cheap concealer pencil to cover the readness around my mouth from years of acne scarring. This one has done the trick pretty nicely. It's very creamy, blends well and lasts very long. I don't care for the brush because it's a bit stiff and just wipes the concealer off, rather than blending it in. The pencil sharpener in the cap is a great idea and works well, considering the price.
Purchased in two shades, but beware, the colors run much darker than the name indicates. I've had this for a few months and use it daily, but I've only had to sharpen the pencil 2 times now. This will last me forever and it only cost a few bucks.

Good concealer for the price- that being said: concealer is one area I DON'T want to say that about.... meaning I want it to be GOOD with no if's, and's or but's. I find it better than many other drugstore brands that cost twice as much- but not up to par with a higher quality. Another reviewer compared it to Bobbi Brown- uh... no....
I'm early 30's and have VERY few fine lines but I find it really settles into them. Coverage wise, it's pretty decent.
Bottom line: if you're on a super budget- might be the product for you. if not- spend a little more and get a higher quality (I like Bobbi Brown's concealers) - you won't be sorry. :)

I purchased this knowing that this concealer will either be a hit or miss because I can't even test the shade(ordering online), but this concealer may have the worst shade selection I've come across. I bought this in Fair expecting it to be too light, and it ended up being several shades darker than my skin; it's more of a tan-medium tone. Even though I've forgoing foundation(less protection from the sun) recently and tan easily; this was way too dark, and had a bit of an orange undertone. So I honestly can't really give an unbiased review of the quality of this concealer, but buyers beware that the shade selection on the ELF website is very misleading for this particular product.
I'm going to keep this and try again towards the summer when I tanner, but I don't think the orange-y undertone will pass even then. Still, the picture on makeupalley makes the light shade look more neutral/light, I'm tempted to try that shade but there's no returns for the ELF website and it's not one of their 1$ 'why not' products. So I don't know if I can recommend this, just know that the odds that this concealer will match your skintone aren't that promising.
I do like the packaging though, a pencil type concealer is great for on-the-go makeup application; no liquids involved. The coverage did seem pretty opaque on my skin, but I still can't give much of an accurate observation of that.

Great product. The color selection is a bit lacking though. I got mine in light, and it tends to turn a bit orange if not blended out properly. I like that it's pretty opaque, and the blending side really helps smooth out the concealer. E.L.F claims that the concealer also contains acne medication as well, but I'm not sure it's actually effective.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Sensitive, Fair, Neutral Hair: Brown, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Hazel
This product is a great idea. It looks like it would work well, and I did try it on a couple of blemishes and it seems like it would blend out nicely (on someone who matches the color). The tea tree oil and salicylic acid is a nice touch. However, the color is terrible. I think it's possible that E.L.F. had the wrong shade in the "Fair" box that I purchased, because I cannot believe how non-"fair" the shade is. I honestly think fair wouldn't even match a light complexion; it's probably better for a medium skintone. To recap: formulation and packaging are good, but the lightest shade is not light by any means.
