          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.

            I have been using color correctors for a while now, I mostly use the grern tone to help with my acne. I got the peach color for under my eyes. I use the corrector and then eye comceler on top. Oh my heavens does this stuff work. I use thr Urban Decay color corrector and I will not be purchasing that item again, granted it is a wonderful product but Smash Box's formula for corrective is just so much better and I see a major difference in the two.

            Absolutely worth trying!!!!

              Comments about Smashbox Color Correcting Stick:

              At first I loved using this to correct my under eye circles. It has great coverage and it works well with my concealer. However, after using this for several months, I started seeing glitter underneath my eyes. At first I thought that it was my pencil sharpener leaving residue on the pencil. Then I realized, the black paint on this pencil was chipping and it has glitter in it. I have to be extremely careful now with this pencil if I don't want specks of glitter on my skin. I also have to use a towel around my hands so I don't get glitter on my fingers. The product itself is great but the packaging makes this unusable.

                        Comments about Smashbox Color Correcting Stick:

                        I bought the orange concealer to cover minor imperfection on my face like the spot on the inner upper part of my nose where my glasses sit, some freckles I have on my chin and some discoloration around my mouth. I am a women of color. I wear the color Macao in the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation and 500 Suede W in the Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Long Wear Foundation... if it helps. I have tried La Girl Orange corrector and found it to be too orange/dark which showed through my makeup so out that went. I tried the MAC Prep + Prime Peach Lustre as a corrector and it was just OK. It was too light and not pigmented enough to do what I need it to do. I needed something in between the La Girl and the Peach Lustre, so I decided to try this product and completely fell in love. It is not as orange/dark and the La Girl and also not as light as the Peach Lustre, it covers well, and blend beautifully. This is a wonderful corrector!
