        Completely loved what it did for my dark circles. But unless it is on sale or have a coupon, it is too expensive for my budget.

            WOW! This works, it covers circles and shadows, but not in the typical way! The color is very true, natural and "blends away" dark shadows, circles, tired lines! Be sure to try on in the ULTA store and choose the tone that works best for you(there are 4). I have olive skin (on light side) under eye circles and some dark shadows on my face. I used the lighter peach and have seen a huge difference!

                I have a lot of redness in the center of my face, and have been looking for a product that will color correct the red. This pencil is very easy to apply - you can "draw" on your face in the areas that need attention. Blends well, and is just the right color. Great product.

                  I wouldn't recommend this product due to the packaging. Embedded within the paint on the stick is glitter and unless you're dressing like a princess on a daily basis it's bad.

                          This stick runs rings around concealer. Concealer under my foundation just looks muddled. The color corrector stick under makeup looks very even and natural. I didn't think anything could hide my dark circles, but this does the trick! Worth the money, and I'm cheap.
