First I will say the colors are really great at correcting, the formula is super easy to use, and the product lasts quite awhile! However... this does settle into fine lines under the eye fairly quickly on me. I have tried to use a hydrating oil first, a good cream first and under eye primers but I cannot get this to stay smooth for more than a couple hours ☹ If you have super perfect under eye skin that is wrinkle free, I highly recommend!

Review for: Look Less Tired - Dark more...
Only noticed a small difference using this item. It was expensive and honestly not really worth it. It was creamy and blended well though. When I used it, it kind of mixed with my concealer and peeked through. I just wasn't really wowed by this product and it just sits at the bottom of my makeup drawer now.

I'm super pale and Italian. I stay up late, full time student and full time work. I'm tired and drink a lot of coffee and I suffer from migraines. You can see my dark circles. I tried this product and it hides the circles perfectly. I have it in orange and I LOVE it! I just ran out and have to purchase more. It hides and blends well with my makeup!! Super happy! Great purchase!

Review for: Look Less Tired - Dark more...
Wish there was a way to pump out more product, like a lip gloss applicator instead of just the pencil. The product is nice, but I honestly prefer color correctors in powder form to blend out easier. Good pigmentation though!

This color correcting pen matches my skin color perfectly and while i tend to use this for days when my dark ciecles are wrose than normal i know i can count on ot for special events or when i really need something to last. Since it is thicker i use a brush to blend it out and avoid the product builsing up in fine lines.

LOVE! The patches under my eye are naturally dark pigmented and I always had a problem with lightening/covering it up but then this color corrector came about and it was a lifesaver. It lasts a long time so I haven't had a chance to try another brand for color correcting but for my first one it is great quality.

The stick is really creamy, and it does a good job as a color corrector. I don't use it often to be honest because I don't have a lot of darkness to cover. The pricepoint is a little ridiculous. I wanna say this was $27? I expect it though if it's coming from smashbox

Blended better than I thought, but it still wasn’t enough to do the job for under eye circles. I have tried very hard to find something that works, and my dark circles aren’t even as bad as most! Maybe if they changed their formula I would give this a try again!

Review for: Look Less Tired - Light, Get Less Red more...
Very soft and creamy. Super easy to blend out. Same formula as the contour and highlight sticks Smashbox has. I didn't see a huge difference made in terms of color correction though, so I would not be rebuying. Maybe color correction just isn't for me.

Edited review:

Where do I begin??
This color correcting stick by Smashbox is truly heaven sent!! For years due to being on medication, my complexion has suffered drastically. I've tried everything from creams, foundations and even lightening creams to correct the hyper-pigmentation in my face and to no avail, NOTHING worked....until I was introduced to the Smashbox Color Correcting Stick via a makeup class at Sephora. I immediately fell in love. Just a teeny amount goes a super long way! It helped even out the tone in my face and it works as a stand alone, I only need to add foundation to it unless I absolutely want to. I'm so glad I found out about this product!

Is a stick better to use than a liquid corrector?

How well do these work compared to the cremes? Are they the same type of consistency and coverage? How long do they last compared to the cremes? And will it work for oily skin types?

I have been needing a color corrector for my hyper pigmentation on my cheeks and have been seeing really great reviews on this one. My question is, how well does it blend? I'm worried that because it is a stick, the consistency will be quite stiff and won't blend well.

Did the black outside part of the pencil start coming off for anyone? It's very annoying, gets all over my hands when I use the product :(
