Good only if it didn't come in pencil form

Comments about Smashbox Color Correcting Stick:

The fact that it comes in pencil form, is cumbersome. I like the coverage it gives but I have to sharpen it every time and quite a lot of product is wasted in sharpening. I wished they made it in a jar variety.

Comments about Smashbox Color Correcting Stick:

This is a pretty good color corrector, I like that it's a pencil so you can be more precise with your placement. However, every time you use this pencil the paint flakes off all over! It wouldn't be that big of a deal but it really sticks to you face and hands. And it's a lot! It's so much of an issue that I may just throw it away.

    Comments about Smashbox Color Correcting Stick:

    I absolutely love the product, I have a ruddy complexion with patches of red, just a little bit of this product eliminates them. My only issue is with the packaging; the black paint chips off the pencil and get on my hands and therefore sometimes my face. Hope they improve it in the future.

        Comments about Smashbox Color Correcting Stick:

        I was impressed with the initial results of the purple stick for my dark circles. Easy to apply and blends well; less is more. I think the product works fantastic! I do have two problems. First, the label flakes off and manages to get some type of metallic shimmer/glitter all over the place. Also, I didn't like having to sharpen it daily to help make it last.

                  Product works well for me. Problem is that the black outer part of the pencil gets all over my hands, which then gets stuck on my face. It started happening after I sharpened it for the first time. Extremely irritating.

                    I wanted to color correct my cheek bones. It is very heavy, like clown make up. It smells weird. It feels like an oil painting stick. I did not like this product at all. Then again, some products arent for everyone.

                      Does this stick sharpen or once it's finished you have to buy a new one? I just purchased it and it's pretty thick so I'm unsure.
