This is an awesome, awesome product. I have fair skin, so the color really matches with my skintone. I use it for two things: One, for lining my lower inner lash line to make myself look more "awake" and to neutralize the redness I have there, and also to cover little flaws on-the-go when my concealer begins to fade in the middle of the day. It's such a convenient little pencil and a bonus is that it's very gentle, never irritating my very sensitive skin. I bought it on a whim in TJMaxx, but I would buy it again any day!

This is the most useful makeup item I have ever had. I bought my pencil many years ago and even though I use it almost daily I still have half a stick left, it lasts a really long time. Its perfect for little red spots and other small blemishes. I also have rosacea and the area right under my eyelashes is usually red and this pencil fixes it perfectly.

I love this concealor pencil. I have brown spots on my face and need to touch up throughout the day so I decided to try this. It's not only perfect for on the go, but I use it instead of a cream concealor. It stays on longer and is so easy to use. I don't need a brush with it. I just pencil in the area to be covered and then dab with my finger. I definitely reccommend this for all uses, especially for travel or purse.

I don't like to use it as a concealer because it's not particularly good at that (on my skin anyway). But it's fantastic to line the eye waterline. It's not as obvious as the regular white pencil (I have their white pencil as well and it's great if your eyes are not tired) and makes a huge difference if my eyes look tired/red. And it actually stays on the waterline the whole day without irritating my already irritated eyes :-) I have it in 1 light. Have had it for a few years already and it's not even half-finished. LOVE it!

I think I have to review this concealer because it is one of the few things I faithfully keep using since almost 20 years and every time I wanted to try something different I came back to this.
I have always had dark circles under my eyes, I think it is genetic, and I have always hated them because they make me look sort of tired or sick. So a concealer was one of the first makeup tools I used as teenager. I don’t remember how I came to this concealer but it was from the first time so perfect that I sticked to it. The reasons? Well, my dark circles are actually not circles but sort of “linen”. So I don’t need to cover a big area but just a small one. For that purpose this fine pencil is perfect and the consistency is ideal. It is soft enough to “draft” small lines on my skin without irritating it and afterword I gently blend it with a finger in order to unify the colour. Done! This is not too buttery or greasy, like many concealers that slide or smear. The adhesion to the skin is perfect and the finish is not dry and cakey. It is important to use a good moisturizer underneath and even if I use a thicker eye cream there is not problem. Once put it lasts all day. And the colour natural 2 has a peachy note that matches perfect my skin. In all these years every now and than I wanted to try something new or different especially after having read outstanding reviews or ads about other wonderworkers but not one could hold it with it. Not all the high tech concealers of YSL, Dior, MUFE, MAC and also more expensive brands. They are too poor in coverage or too unnatural in colour or consistency, too dry or to grease or not longlasting enough. I hope that Shiseido will keep making it forever.

I got this because of great reviews, and I love experimenting with concealers, mainly for covering blemishes and scars. I thought this would be great because it had potential to be great for spot-concealing.
Unfortunately, I ended up disappointed. First of all, this concealer had a waxy, dry texture. When I apply it on my face, it didn't stick so I had to "color" it a few times, which then made it look too thick and stand out glaringly on my skin. I did moisturize my face before applying this, but that didn't help at all.
The color selection was also very limited. I got the medium, number 2, which looked yellowish on the pencil but ended up kind of peachy on my skin, which didn't go well with my skin color.
Overall it just didn't work out for me.

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!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair, Warm Hair: Brown, Straight, Medium Eyes: Blue
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
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
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.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Very Dry, Olive Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
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.

This is my HG pencil concealer. I have a Shiseido pencil that I've been carrying around for years (1) and use it regularly for a very hard to conceal spot (broken capillaries) on the bridge of my nose and a few dark spots. Nothing else I've tried has the staying power as well as the complete coverage. I haven't had a color match problem with #1 color (I'm buff/beige with yellow/olive undertones on the lighter side.) I'm still in search of the best undereye concealer though. Right now am trying a combo of the Mary Kay signature concealer (staying power is right) combined with Everyday Minerals powder concealer on top. I'll keep searching...

I have been using this product for the past 5 years! Just cannot live without. This is not for someone that needs a whole face of concealer coverage but for those smaller blemish and light scars. I can sometimes just use this to cover up spots and not use any other foundation or powder and looks great. Colors are limited but blends well into the skin. I love it!
Still using this can't live without. Hope they never discontinue. Loooove this!!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Very Oily, Medium, Warm Hair: Black, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Brown
I bought this mainly to cover pimples and blemishes. The packaging is nice, but the limited color kinda puts me off. That's not the only problem, the staying power is ridiculous! I have oily skin and it's creamy when applied so it's not that hard to blend at all. However it's gone in an hour or two! I tried putting it under the foundation or over the foundation setting it with powder, but it still comes off. Even with primer, it still comes off! EDIT: I'm taking off more lippies. I'm wasting my time putting this thing on and just coming off so quickly. The color doesn't even match my skin tone.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Neutral Hair: Black, Straight, Medium Eyes: Brown
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.
