  1. I find them too dry for my eye area.

    I just recently re-discovered my old Prescriptives Magic concealer pencil (not the highlighting one). It was one of their pencils that had the space for a connector cap on the end. I’ve been struggling with cysts (caused by steriod injections) on my cheek (and the subsequent hyper-pigmentation from them) for the past 7 months. Only when I started using this concealer was the pigmentation actually covered, and it lasts! For NYE I layered the pencil over (and under actually) Chanel Teint Innocence liquid and lightly powdered over it. No sign of the hyper-pigmentation until I removed the mu!

    I wouldn’t use this on my under-eye circles, my Bobbi Brown eye brightener under the TI is enough – and certainly kinder to the thinner skin there.

    Now I just need to find an adequate replacement for it!! Any suggestions?

    I like concealer pencils not as under eye concealer but as concealing occasional “bleeding” around my lipstick when I am out all night. Doesn’t matter if I use a ton of lip prep and prime, my MAC Lipstick in Cyber bleeds after awhile so it’s always nice to have a concealing pencil to cover the places where my makeup is ruined.

    I think what’s bad about concealer pencils is that you waste an awful lot of product through sharpening. I also find them difficult to blend, because they’re so dry.

    I don’t use the pencil.I don’t like using anything pencil at all because it tugs my skin.

    Hmm… these are probably stupid questions, but:
    What is a concealer pencil? Is it a product like Touch Eclat by Estee Lauder (I think)? Why would you need one in addition to a concealer like Select Cover-up?

    I love the concept of concealer pencils but they’re all so DRY! And most are too opaque to use for anything other than covering pimples. If they made a more emollient, sheer pencil that would be great. I am NOT a fan of concealer pens so a new formula of pencil would be perfect!

    One more thing, it would HAVE to be an automatic sharpener/twist up one because I hate having to carry a separate sharpener. It also wastes product as another commenter stated.

  10. I find them to be too dry and difficult to blend, so definitely not my first choice of concealed type. I also have found that other types (liquid, cream, etc.) usually come in a wider range of colors.

    I’m completely indifferent. To me, it’s just another approach to the product. Not my first choice, though!
