This pencil concealer is really great. It covers blemishes really well and does not cause any irritation to my sensitive skin. Being a pencil, it lasts a lot longer too. I have finally run out of mine and will be purchasing another.

I previously gave a positive review on this product but after using it a while more I decided to change it.

So I just don't know what happens to the concealer. I apply it on my dark circles, annoying pimples and acne scars, and the concealer just disappears immediately! And then I try to apply more and it's still the same, nothing covered. I tried it on top of my bb cream and under, no difference. It just doesn't stay there! It looks thick and pigmented enough but just like I said it disappears... Even when I don't try to blend it in!

And I only realized I needed a specific sharpener way after I bought it ("The Body Shop" store is a little far away from where I live, so...)

The lightest shade is not very light! It looks darker than my skin, and a completely different tone, it is sooooo yellow...

Super drying and not easily blended. Clung to every dry patch and worsened it. Had to buy the sharper we separate because the pencil is too big for the standard big sharpener. Useful to highlight under and above brows. Color selection was OK. I rather the True Match Super Blendable Crayon.

NC25 yellow toned Asian, starting to get dark circles.

I pair this w/ Burberry's Concealer Pen #2 over top the Body Shop 02 concealer pencil (per makeupbox's Dayre's Day80 post on Undereye Concealer). REALLY WORKS, better than all the other concealer reviews I've done so far. I might spring for the MAC NW20 pot or MUFE Lift No2 later such as mentioned in her post.. but really happy w/ this combo thus far.

Topped w/ Maybelline's Age Rewind in Neutralizer was bit too thick and cakey.

Pros:
- Packaging looks cute.
- Easy to apply.
Cons:
- A little hard to blend.
- A bit dry.
- Limited coverage.

This is not a bad concealer, and I it might be a good choice, if want something, that's easy to apply and carry around, but if you are going to buy it, I really suggest trying different colours and making sure, that you get the one that is closest to your skintone, otherwise it will show up on your skin when you apply it.
Good luck!

I really like this stuff, and even though the crayon (in theory) is "easy to use", I hated the way it could scratch and pull at my under-eye area (where it looks best for me), and that my big sharpener wasn't big enough.

So I ended up taking a knife and sawing down the middle of the pencil, scooping out the product and putting it in a little Sephora sampler flip-top pot. Now I use it with a concealer brush or a clean finger, and it's great.

Good coverage and texture, colour's right for me, stays all day. Looks smoother and blends better over a primer of course.

It's going to last forever.

This product would provide a good amount of coverage if it wasn't too dry. It makes my face look so dry, and gives a cakey result. You definitely can't use this on the eye area, as it is too dry, and tugs on the skin. Maybe heating the pencil under a blow dryer would allow a more easier application. Also the pencil is fairly thick/large, so you need a larger pencil sharpener to sharpen it. So I had to purchase a larger sharpener from the body shop, which was a bit pricey for a sharpener. I don't think I will repurchase this.

I bought this to cover spots/acne/redness and under eye circles. It covered spots and acne but looked very obvious and cake-y due to the thickness of the formula. It did cover redness alright but made my combination skin oiler. It did not work as an under eye concealer as it was too thick and tugged at the delicate skin. I continued to use it for redness and only that. Would not repurchase as it's pricey and did not give me the results I wanted.

My skin used to be acne-prone, but this product NEVER had a negative affect on my skin. My skin has cleared up over the past several months, so now I use it to cover up hyper-pigmentation left over from the acne. No one can tell that I have any make-up on when I wear this, it blends really well with my skin tone (I use #3). It doesn't clog my pores or irritate my skin, and it will last me all day. Sometimes I can exercise with it on (after a day at work, for example), and then go home looking as if I had just applied it.

p.s. must buy with sharpener at Body Shop

This concealer is great for covering blemishes. I use the BareMinerals concealer brush and love how it blends. For the price and the amount of product you get, I think it is worth it. Body shop always has great discounts and deals so when you get the chance I would suggest picking it up.

However, I am a bum and don't have a proper sharpener for it. I'm going to be picking up UD's Grindhouse soon so I hope that does the trick and I can continue using the pencils
