      Comments about Smashbox Color Correcting Stick:

      I was looking for a 'concealer' for the areas of my face that tended to make me look 'tired.' This little pencil does what other cream/liquid concealers can't - it actually blends so well that dark circles or lines are not prominent. I look younger!

        I had not known about color correcting, until one of the ladies at Ulta used this under a tarte concealer. My dark circles disappeared, I was amazed! I have never had luck finding the concealer that works for me, but this is it! I can wear it by its self or under concealer for even more coverage. I hope they never get rid of this!

            Comments about Smashbox Color Correcting Stick:

            I have dark circles and some hyperpigmentation, but I don't like to wear a heavy foundation. An Ulta associate recommended the Smashbox Color Correcting Stick in orange to me, and it is fabulous. I tried it on in the store and immediately my dark circles disappeared. Adding a little bit of concealer over it helped even more. I love this product, and I will continue to buy it especially since it keeps me from adding a heavy layer of makeup for coverage.

                    I have terrible skin. Redness, acne, everything. I love this product because it really helps me hide the acne and scarring. Concealer alone just doesn't quite do the trick. This is the third time I've purchased this and I will keep coming back
