Well first make sure you are using the UD grindhouse sharpener. It's a bummer I know but that's the only one that really works with it. IT is messy. My only advice is to get a good grip on it and to go slowly.

The soft texture of the concealer means that your sharpener does get more gunked up than with a harder product, but any residue left in the sharpener can be easily wiped away with a Q-tip or tissue. If you're concerned about the mess or losing too much product, try leaving the pencil in the freezer for an hour or so before you sharpen it. It should make the concealer temporarily harder and easier to sharpen.

I've had no issues. Just clean your sharpener in warm soapy water after. Sharpeners should be cleaned regularly anyway so I'm not sure what the big deal is with the messy complaints.

It's nearly impossible to sharpen this without a messy, uneven, jagged product. The plastic just doesn't shave away as easily as a wooden pencil. So much of the product is lost when trying to shave away the plastic that it's almost not worth it to purchase the product at all. My advice: don't buy the concealer unless UD changes the way they deliver it.

Use Urban Decay's sharpener - it's made for the 24/7 collection, so you can sharpen it with minimal waste of product.

I never found it to be a problem to sharpen. I've used it with Urban Decay's and Sephora's sharpeners, and it sharpens really smooth, without leaving a huge mess. Good luck!

answer 2
I really don't understand why people think that you should choose a shade lighter than your skin. It doesn't magically hide anything-- in most cases, it makes the problems more obvious. You don't want to highlight the circles under your eyes or the blemishes on your chin, so why make them lighter? It only pulls attention to those areas. What you should always do is purchase a concealer that is roughly the same shade as your skin and apply it BEFORE foundation. After your foundation, apply setting powder to your blemishes and eyes. It will make the coverage last all day!

Good luck =)

I have very light/fair skin and I always buy a shade lighter. Especially for evening skin-tone under/around my eyes. Also, buying a lighter shade helps to hide any redness around blemishes.

Definitely go lighter if you're unsure.

After applying the concealer, lightly pat some of your regular face powder over it which will help set it and blend it with the rest of your makeup.

This product does require the use of a sharpener. I use the dual one from Urban Decay. I have used others that I have for larger pencils and they work just as well. While this is a great product, it can be difficult to sharpen at times because the pencil is made out of a hard plasticy material. Hope this helps.

It can be sharpened if you have a chubby sharpener. But it sharpens unevenly and the plastic is sharp, it's awful. I don't recommend.

Urban Decay sells a pencil sharpener called "Grind House" for $10 specifically for that line of pencils, but really any sharpener by a makeup brand would work if it has a spot for thicker pencils.

With the Urban Decay Grindhouse sharpener. http://www.sephora.com/grind-house-P219007 I decided on this sharpener from other reviews - they mentioned that using another sharpener could cause the pencil to crack. I make sure to only sharpen a little at a time to avoid wasting any concealer.

You literally just use a regular make-up sharpener like those you'd use for eyeliner! It'll be little tough but what I do is grab a piece of tissue to get a grip of it.

Yes, it has to be sharpened, which, to me, is both annoying and a waste of product, and if you have used your sharpener for an eye pencil/shadow pencil, unless you clean it scrupulously (which is difficult - get out the alcohol and a q-tip!), you will end up transferring unwanted colour to this pencil. It's amazing that they wouldn't use a twist up tube for this concealer. Maybe if enough of us contact them, they might change it in 10 or 15 years (I mean, they FINALLY changed the UDPP Genie tube!)

This concealer in my opinion is quite long lasting. I have been using it for about a year or more and it is my go-to concealer because of the fact that it is full coverage and lasts all day. I have normal to oily skin depending on the weather and it usually always holds up very well even in hot and humid weather. Hope this helps. :)

I do believe this concealer would work for highlighting, but depending on what foundation you use or if you use a foundation might matter. This concealer is full coverage and is quite thick. When applied under liquid or powder foundation it should work just fine. To use it alone may or may not work too well if you don't want it to be noticeable. Hope this helps. :)

The precision tip would allow for suitable highlighting, but the formula might be too thin for this purpose. I would try Make Up Forever concealer as it is a bit more matte and stands out more.

If you're looking for a concealer pen that is more matte, than this is the product! My skin can get oily, and this helps tone it down, and doesn't add to my shine. Good luck! I hope it works for you as much as it does for me!

In my opinion it's best as a concealer. I think touche eclat would be the best as a highlighter, it's pricey but it's good. It even doubles as a concealer if you don't have very prominent dark circles.

I wear 1.0 in the Naked foundation (my skin IQ is 1Y02) and I use DEA. It's a little dark for me, but CIA was way too light. I'm somewhere in between the two shades, so I bet DEA would work for you.
