What It Is:

The secret to a retouched yet natural look, this creamy-matte pencil undetectably lightens shadows, covers dark spots, and neutralizes redness. The collection also includes an Illuminate Pencil that's ideal for all skin tones. Use it for highlighting cheekbones, the inner corners of the eyes, or brow bones—any feature you want to play up.

Why It's Different:

Retouching Face Pencil is designed to look natural on skin—never fake, cakey or masky. The creamy-matte texture glides on comfortably and blends seamlessly into skin with a few pats of your finger. Plus, it's incredibly versatile: use it on bare skin as your all-in-one skin perfector or layer it over foundation for added coverage where you need it.

How to Use:

To cover shadows: Choose a pencil one to two shades lighter than your skin tone and apply on recessed parts of the face inner corners of the eyes, around the nose, and corners of mouth.

To cover dark spots: Start with a pencil one to two shades lighter than your skin tone, then layer a pencil that matches your skintone.

To cover redness: Choose a pencil that matches your skintone. Apply before or after foundation, wherever you see redness. It can also be used to touch up skin throughout the day.

To highlight: Apply the Illuminate Pencil on top of the cheekbones, the inner corners of the eyes, and on brow bones. Blend with fingers.

This was great until I wore down the tip and now there’s no way to sharpen it? It’s way too large to fit into a pencil sharpener and I haven’t been able to find one big enough to fit this so it’s just been sitting on my makeup stand for over a year now :( I loved the product wear itself though so I had to give it 4 stars!

I’m completely obsessed with this product. It has great coverage and wears all day. It does come in a pencil form but is smooth in application. It is full coverage right off the bat. I have repurchased this product about 3-4 times. I highly recommend.

This is definitely not a concealer meant for under the eyes or large parts of the face, it’s more so for using as a spot concealer which I like. It’s very easy to blend out and the color selection works well for my skin tone

I absolutely love this concealer. Ever since I tried it I haven’t use any other product! Absolutely will recommend to anyone interested. Applies so nicely! Good coverage!

I've been trying to find a good concealer that won't crease or dry out my eyes, and this is by far the best and my favorite! It's super moisturizing and soft and creamy. I find it dries down pretty quickly and doesn't smudge off throughout the day like other concealers have done. I also found it works really well on acne too. My only problem is the squeeze tube; I always get too much product because I'm terrible at estimating how much I need.

This is an amazing pencil. I got illuminate w a pencil sharpener. There is a dupe for this (wet n wild Ultimate Brow Highlighter). I love using this as an eyeliner it wakes my tired eyes up looking! Also to use for brow highlight.

It’s not the best at blending, so do not apply directly. I would warm some in my hands and then apply the product. It does illuminate, I’ll give it that, but I do not prefer it over my drug store highlighters.

I got the pencil in illuminate. It's definitely not for concealing. I tried using it as a highlighter, but it's too sparkly for me. I prefer a glow, subtle highlight, so this was too much for me. Instead, I use it as an eyeshadow and use it to highlight my inner corners. It's AMAZING!!! It really does wanders to open the eyes. I've used other shadows for the inner corners, but this was the best one I've tried. The shade is perfect for opening the eyes.
