love this concealer. it doesn't look cakey and glides perfectly. gives a natural coverage for me. despite that,i wouldn't repurchase this product because there's no urban decay in my country (i bought this in england and it's really expensive for a concealer)
but i don't like the pencil packaging because it would be a waste if we sharpen it.

Where has this concealer been all my life? After reading a beauty blogger's review, I ventured online to purchase this pencil concealer. Since that time, I've bought one more to include in my bag for on the go.
Easy to apply, smooth and not cakey, I find this covers all my minor bumps left behind from pimples and covers the redness around my nose.
I work 11 hour shifts and have found a slight touch up is needed to get me through the to the night but that's easy and blends so well.
I'm converted to the UD concealer pencil, easy.

This product is pretty good, but it isn't full-coverage like I thought it would be. It also can get cakey very easily. I use it on blemishes and it hasn't broken me out, probably repurchase but only if it is on sale. Not worth the full price.

I bought FBI for my summer (fake) tanned skin. I mostly use it on the odd pimple I get and redness around my nose. I find that it covers really well and blends easily but does not have any staying power, which is important in the summer when I'm sweating like a man. It also tends to "separate" on the skin in humid conditions and ends up looking patchy. The colour selection is awful, as FBI is the 2nd darkest colour and it isn't even that dark. Forget about getting the lightest colour unless you're a vampire.

I really didn't like this as a concealer. It might work well for under the eyes, but I don't have dark circles. I bought it to use for scars and acne spots on my face, and it didn't work at all. It looked cakey, and made the spots look worse. I was really hopeful because of the good reviews, but was disappointed!

I received this as a gift and so far I am pretty impressed. I have only used it as an undereye concealer. I usually put foundation under my eyes to cover the small amount of darkness I have there and it usually gets a little cakey looking. This pencil is very creamy and go on really smooth. It also does not get cakey looking. I moisturize under my eyes before I use this but I definitely like it so far. I haven't used it on my face yet just my eyes.

This concealer is so conveniently packaged. The texture is such a dream also! Very creamy, smooth and thick. However it is still a bit cakey for my taste and the colors are very light. When I wear this, you can definitely tell I'm wearing concealer under my eyes, and that is not the point. I like my concealer to not be visible at all, and instead hide my dark circles well enough that I look naturally wide-awake and fresh. I've had under-eye circles for as long as I remember and I've tried countless of concealer with no luck, Bobbi Brown corrector is my new found treasure, check my review on that one.

GREAT GREAT PRODUCT!!! :D i am so pleased with this concealer!! its so creamy, thick and blendable. i would highly reccomend it and i am so picky when it comes to concealers i use. i also think the pencil it comes in is great for quick and precise application, you do also get a good bit of product from one stick. it was suprisingly cheap (considering its urban decay) but the only flaw was that it was so creamy, the point often broke, but i wond complain. over all...A++ xXx

I did not like this concealer at all. I used it for my dark circles. It just looked cakey and thick but it covered them okay. But after a while it caused milia under my eyes which I still haven't been able to get rid of to this day! ):

This is by far the best concealer I have ever tried. I have combination skin and scarring from breakouts but this concealer covers completely and consistency allows you to blend this easily. I have light-medium skin and FBI is a great fit. In addition, this concealer has never made me break out which is a great feat in and of itself.
I like the pencil applicator for precision but it's wide enough to allow for more coverage. Bad thing about wide shape is finding a pencil sharpener. I use Maybelline's dual-head sharpener and it works well.
Cons: If you have super-oily skin, concealer can end up looking cakey after 12 hours. The nice thing is that all you need to do is blot, blend with your finger again, and apply powder.

i really like this concealer. i know its annoying when people dont list their shades in reviews but i've had this so long i think mine has rubbed off and i just cant remember but its one shade too light for me. none the less i still love this. i dont use it for blemishes as i have found it can be too cakey. i use this udner my eyes and it covers my dark circles very nicely. i dont consdier it a HG product because i dont grab for it very often. i generally use this at night if i'm going out becuase i trust this to stay put all night long. personally i think its too heavy for me during day time. i will repurchase this when i run out in a color better suited for my skin tone.

Never before have a found a concealer that has this much hiding ability! The SA said that its made with clay and that is where the hiding power comes from. I always need to hide my scars and blemishes. This is the HG of concealers! It is not cakey, its creamy, blendable and has lasting power. I was going to a family reunion and running really late. so I thought i would just do my make up in the car. in the car on my way to the family reunion i realize i left my foundation at home! everyone always takes a million photos at those things! So i was forced to use this on my face. I must say I was very surprised. Since its so creamy and blendable, it looked actually good. It also came through for me again when I bought a super hot Bebe dress that was low cut. I never realized that i have a red mark/ scar look line between my Breast until i was getting dress for my Christmas party. I put this on with some powder. It was like magic. You cant even see it in photos! This item is the ultimate concealer! I will Buy this again and again!

I bought this a few days ago and already am considering this as HG. I do not have many blemishes, so I use this as an undereye concealer. It covers flawlessly, applies exactly where I want it without needing a brush, does not drag, lasts even in humid weather, and made me look like I am actually sleeping more then four hours a night.

It pains me to give a product from Urban Decay an overall score of less than three lippies, especially when I seem to be one of the rarer case of bad reviews concerning this product. Don't get me wrong-- I love, and I repeat, LOVE Urban Decay. I'm a fan of their 24/7 eyeliners, and I have both Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss and Grind House (it's an eyeliner sharpener with a spankingly witty name, if I do say so myself) on my list for next time I visit Sephora. But this concealer... it was truly a disappointment. Usually I don't have high expectations of products because I know those most will not be able to live up to my painstakingly set criteria, but are still good products. But when I tried this on, I found it to be cakey, not to mention it didn't provide very good coverage at all. Seeing as I do not have many blemishes, and at worst, a few faded scars and/or redness, a pencil that cost me about twenty bucks should be able to at least cover the few marks I have, but this one does not. Frustrated, I thought that maybe it would work under eyes; alas, it looked very unnatural and didn't do a quality job covering the tired bags under my eyes.
However, I have a rare combination of skin tones since I'm of mixed race (my skin is neither neutral, warm, or cool, it really depends on the lighting; usually, it has yellow undertones with a mixture of pink, not to mention I'm quite pale). Keeping that in mind, this may be a good concealer for you because most likely Sephora offers a better selection for a more general audience as far as skin tones are concerned. Also, I found that the pencil design was very creamy, and made operating the concealer a lot more easy. For a little less than twenty dollars, I think it's worth a shot; my advice, though, is to try it on first at your local Sephora before splurging and buying it. Good luck!
Whoops, I meant to post this on the board concerning the CIA color for the more fair skin-colored people out there; oh well! I hope my review in terms of the product's quality and what not were helpful, anyways. :)

FBI is a great colour match for me, and I'm really impressed with this concealer. I normally avoid pencil concealers as I find they dry out and drag on the skin, but this one stays creamy and glides on perfectly. The pencil is also very light, and nicely made with a secure cap, so it won't come off if you carry it around, and doesn't seem likely to snap as it's quite chunky. I use this mainly to cover blemishes, which it does very well, though you may need to layer it for complete coverage. I have used it as an under eye concealer once, and it did a good job, but I would prefer to use something light reflecting under my eyes. It did help me out an a day preceded by very little sleep though!
This product has good staying power on my skin, especially considering I am not setting my make up with a powder at the moment. Without a powder it is lasting eight or nine hours on my combination to oily skin, and doesn't budge when I apply a mattifying powder after lunch. The pencil also seems like it will last a very long time, as I've been using it everyday for a month and have only just had to sharpen it. That is the only negative for me actually, the pencil is so creamy it is difficult to sharpen without losing product, so I would recommend putting it in the fridge overnight before sharpening it in the morning. Overall though I am very impressed and will definitely buy again!

i wanted to love this because i heard amazing things, but it just looked cakey on me. maybe i didn't plly it right, but it made the tiny fine lines more visible and didn't really do anything for my undereye circles.

I cant believe there are only 2 reviews for this! I never thought to try it because I always used Vincent Longo...but Sephora stopped carrying it. So i used this. Its GREAT! Its a chubby pencil, you dot under the eyes, I use a concelear brush to blend. its so easy to blend! its really good.

One time I was at Sephora and I just decided to buy this with a gift card that I had because I didn't really find anything else I wanted. I'm so glad I bought it! This concealer pencil is very creamy and easy to blend. I usually use it on blemishes and it works very well. It doesn't cake and it stays on a really long time. I haven't tried this on my under eyes because I like to use a peachier colored concealer for that. There are only two things that I don't really like about this. If your skin is a little oily when you apply it, it slides off a bit, so if you have oily skin I don't suggest this product. Also, I seem to have on and off days with this; sometimes it works really well, and sometimes it doesn't. But otherwise I reallly like this and the color match is really great.
UDATE: So I ran out of my undereye concealer and I started using this under my eyes just until I get another concealer. I found that THIS WORKS GREAT UNDER YOUR EYES. It's creamy and easy to blend with your finger so it is really quick application. I almost like it better under my eyes than on my blemishes.

Okay, so I first heard about this on the boards and was incredibly anxious to try it. Iíll try just about any concealer that crosses my path in the hopes of finding the very best one for me since concealer is a Ďmust-haveí part of my daily routine. My skin challenges are under-eye circles due to not enough sleep (kids!) and occasional breakouts and redness around my nose. Once I found this item on Beauty.com I ordered right away since they have a lower free ship than the UD site directly. Iíve been using it for a little over a week with excellent results. Here are my thoughts in regards to texture, longevity, color match and overall value. TEXTURE: itís a chubby pencil that is soft and creamy although unlike most other pencil concealers that I have tried. I donít usually prefer pencil concealer types because they are usually too emollient, crease and donít last long. The 24/7 really counters these notions. Itís sort of a gel-like consistency so itís soft and easily blended, spreads evenly and smoothes over my under-eye circles with the warmth of my fingertips. I draw little dots directly on and then press to blend. It works wonderfully. LONGEVITY: This stuff lasts through most of my 8-hour work day which is pretty darn good since most concealers only last until lunch on me if Iím lucky. My skin is oily-combo so lasting to the afternoon is quite a success imo. COLOR MATCH: I chose FBI which is the medium shade since Iím usually medium in most things (MAC match NW 25-27). However it runs a bit light and doesnít seem quite medium at all. Iím hesitant to try the next shade up (NSA-Medium Dark) because the swatches look so deep online. The color match is my only gripe for this product. OVERALL VALUE & RECOMMENDATION: the pencil runs $16 which is a great price for this product. It performs well, is easily portable, lasts long and doesnít crease. The only challenge might be finding a good color match so I recommend you try it out if you can before you purchase (which unfortunately isnít an option for me). It also contains silicones and parabens so if these are concerns for you, you may want to skip it. I really like it so far and would rank it as equivalent with other concealers that I use and love like TheBalm Time Balm (Light-Medium), Becca Compact Concealer (Brulee) and Too Faced Absolutely Flawless Herbal Concealer (Medium), all great products.
