this color correctors work like charm how ever I find that grabbing the product with the brush instead of putting it on the skin straight from the stick makes it easier to apply and blend

l have been using this color correcting stick and l think it is the best l normally use it to color correct around my mouth and l like that its functional and l like that its in a stick and its creamy once you put it on it just stays put. l would recommend this especially for beginners who are learning how to color correct because sometimes liquid correctors can be a bit tricky

I recently hit 30 and ever since I've been fighting those under-eye circles! I use the light stick before my concealer and it makes a huge difference, super easy to apply and settles nicely into my skin, without being cakey or heavy at all.

One of my favorite color cocorrectors. Very creamy and very blendable! Very little goes such a long way. The only thing that I don't really like about it is that you need a jumbo sized sharpener to sharpen it.

The product itself works great and that's why I gave it two stars instead of none. Blends well helps to cover darks circles under eyes ( I bought the dark peach colour). BUT the packaging is absolutely horrendous... EVERY time I used it I would get sparkles all under my eyes -NOT what you want with dark circles. Not just a few But lots of huge silver chunky sparkles took me a bit to figure out the black paint on the packaging was flaking off. It is stored upright in a lipstick makeup tray, so it has its own little compartment so no smashing happened. Also every time I sharpened it no matter how little it would break off and was a waste of product. I used the sharpener it came with and I never dropped it. Maybe it was dropped before my purchase. Either way I threw it out today. I just couldn't take the sparkles anymore let alone the wood scratching under my eyes because I couldn't sharpen it with out a huge chunk falling out of the pencil.

Review for: Get Less Red (green)
This is a great colour correcting pencil. Its my first and only colour corrector for redness, and I picked it because I was a newbie with makeup (about 18 months ago) and needed something that was easy to use.

I was advised to use it in x's all over my face. However that is not necessary, and I think that we're told that so it uses up faster and we have to replace it. I'm still using the same pencil! After primer, I dab it on areas where I want to cut down the redness, and gently tap it out with my ring fingertip. This is usually the centre of my face, and in blemish areas around my brows and chin areas (where I'm more prone to have a breakout). I follow up with foundation and concealer. This is a pretty thick product, you don't need a lot, and it does blend out easily.

However I wouldn't recommend using it if  you're not going to apply foundation and concealer overtop of it, because it is visible on the skin. If you're going bare faced but want a very mild redness corrector, use the green primer that Smashbox has as your primer. That helps too!

Hands down the best color corrector for under eye circles! I use the color light peach and I must say I was a bit skeptical about using this as I felt there was no way it was going to work. Turns out it covered my dark circles and didn't settle into my fine lines like many others in the past have. The formula is very creamy and easy to blend. Definitely worth every penny and will definitely be a repurchase in the future

I have the Look Less Tired - Light one for my dark circles and dark complexions. It blends well and covers up the dark areas. However, I noticed that it looks clumpy if you apply many layers of it under your eye and that it doesn't last as long out in the sun.

This sticks absolutely work I got a black eye from softball and needed my black eye to be covered before a family members wedding and also for work. I used the orange and purple color for the coverup. Orange for the dark bruises and purple for the yellow color.

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.

Is a stick better to use than a liquid corrector?

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 :(

How does this compare to the LAgirl green corrector as far as consistency and coverage go? Also will it make existing blemishes worse
