24/7 Concealer Pencil


24/7 Concealer Pencil

What it is:Hide dark circles and blemishes with this creamy formula that dries matte and stays put. What it does:A pencil concealer equals precise, mess-less application-no brush, no dipping your finger into a pot, and no squeezing a dollop onto a sponge. Dot on tiny blemishes or shade in large problem areas (like redness around the nose and chin). The creamy formula blends easily and dries down to a smudge-free matte finish.What else you need to know:Already full of vitamin E, 24/7 Concealer also contains a new ingredient called Microsponge-its empty spheres absorb excess oil preventing further breakouts and clogged pores.

Fortunately, the NARS sharpener works for this as well. I ran into the same problem, and my local Sephora store was always out of the UD Grindhouse sharpener. I didn't want to order online and have to wait for it! A very helpful associate at Sephora demonstrated the the NARS sharpener worked just as well, ($6) so I don't have to wait for the Grindhouse to come in now. If you can't find the Grindhouse at your local store, purchase the Nars instead. It has three different pencil sizes, and I haven't found anything that it can't sharpen.

I couldn't figure it out either so I took to digging into the top with the end of a q-tip (which I removed the actual cotton part of) and it works just fine. Even if you take the bottom of the pencil off (the part that turns) it doesn't really seem like there's any kind of mechanism in the bottom to push the product up, and I'd be leery of pushing it from the bottom myself because it's so soft...
But the q-tip technique works very well! :)

I know it can be confusing because with other concealers (like tarte) you twist the bottom, but with this one, you have to sharpen it. For this product, it's very important that you only use the Urban decay grindhouse sharpener. I know from experience that using any other sharpener could damage or even break it. You can buy the UD grindhouse sharpener from Sephora or urbandecay.com. It's $9, which seems expensive for a pencil sharpener, but considering that using a cheaper sharpener could ruin UD products, it definitely ends up being worth it. Hope this helps!

LOL I had that same problem when I first bought it, I also tries twisting the bottom and then realized you're supposed to sharpen it like a regular pencil. I know its a bit deceiving because the material surrounding the actual concealer looks a lot like plastic. Make sure to use sephora sharpener so it doesnt break.

I use BE medium beige as well and I'm using the NSA one. It's an exact match to my skin tone, which I like better. It's always good to have one of the Sephora Reps try both out on your under eye, so you can see it yourself and have a better look. That's how I was able to make my decision. I hope this was helpful.

I suppose you need a sharpener designed specifically for the UD Concealer Stick. Like many of you, I didn't know I needed a sharpener either, but alas, I had a brand new , three-sized, pristine sharpener. No problem!

The stick fit perfectly into the sharpener, but the texture (one of the very reasons so many love it) makes it difficult to sharpen without wasting a considerable amount. I'd guess after three turns, one good, gooey turn stayed in the sharpener box. I tried to dig it out once. . . but life's too short! The refrigerator/freezer idea sounds like it might help; I don't know.

Ultimately, UD made a superior concealer for a great price--no easy accomplishment! Why didn't someone give a little more thought on how customers would use it and keep waste minimal .
I still love you :>

UD's Grinder (sharpener) is perfect for this concealer pencil and made specifically for it. I've found that if you the pencil sharpener that is specific to your product you'll get the best resutls with less product waste. If the holes are too large, the pencil will move around inside, causing gouging and excessive waste to the pencil. The Grinder also works with UD's 24/7 pencils which are terrific. Bourbin is my pencil of choice.

You'll definitely need to sharpen this stick the ol' fashioned way, with a sharpener. I find it bizarre that U.D doesn't offer one with the stick.

Sephora has a great one and it's really cheap:

I also have oily skin......When I heard about this, I was iffy about it, but tried it anyways. I love it! I usually put it on before foundation and before the Urban Decay primer potion, then do my usual eye makeup plus under eye lining, then dab the lightest nude eyeshadow on top of it to catch any excess oil. This way it stays put all day and the shadow catches excess oil. I hope this was helpful.

This works FANTASTIC on acne scars, especially the ones on the chin and jawline like I have. It's not oily, so I don't find it causes more breakouts and, if anything, helps absorb some of the oil as it matte-ifies. It does slide a little, though, on new pimples but that's only initially - once it's dried, you're golden!

the formula contains an ingredient that absorb excess oil so it prevents clogged pores and breakouts. It will not make you look more oily because it has a semi-matte finish in my opinion.

It's ideal for mineral foundations (I wear Bare minerals matte foundation for my everyday look) because once you blend this concealer in and it dries, the mineral foundation goes right over it making my skintone look healthy, even and darn near perfect. For more special occasions, I use the Urban Decay Surreal Cream to Powder foundation, which is more like a liquid. This concealer doesn't work quite as well with that because sometimes this concealer--which I worked so hard to apply before I put on the foundation--smudges when I apply the foundation and I have to re-do parts of the concealer. Overall, I'd say it works better with mineral foundations, but that's probably true of most concealers. Hope this helps!

It covers but if you have super oily skin like I do then it will slide off. It also did not cause me to get any breakouts which I liked.
If you have oily skin like I do you may have to use a primer along with this concealer, but those tend to break me out as well. if you dont have that issue then try it. I would try a bismuth oxychloride free mineral makeup and use a concealer brush to help put more product on your blemish. Make sure you test out different shades because those will make them a dark purplish color if you do not find the right shade. hope this helps!

If your acne turns into a dark spot, you have nothing to worry about with this pencil. I use this concealer to cover up my dark spots too. It completely covers anything. Sometimes I'll run the pencil over the same area 2 or 3 times because I like to blend a lot in between swipes. Just follow up with foundation and you will be all set.

I believe it would conceal dark spots from acne beautifully. It doesn't cover tattoos, but seems to conceal just about anything else. It certainly covers angry red areas. The light is light enough for my pale face, so consider your skintone.
