Thoughts: I'm the type who only get blemishes when it's that time of the month. It's not one of those tiny little bumps that disappears within a day. It's one of those huge bumps with white pus inside. It's not a pretty sight. For this reason, I always need a good concealer on the side. So when I received this product, I was excited how it would work on my huge zits.
Here's a closer look of the pencil.
Here's a closer look at the sharpener on the bottom of the pencil.
Here's a closer look of the color.
Here's the quantity of the concealer. I twisted until you couldn't twist anymore.
Here's a swatch of the concealer on my hand.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's no noticeable scent while applying. I just sniffed the product and it has a slight burnt scent. To be honest, this wasn't what I expected. I'm blown away but at the same time, not. It isn't as bad as I'm describing. Secondly, I like the packaging. To be honest, I'm so used to pots/tubs for concealer. I hardly use pencil to spot conceal. I mainly conceal my freckles, dark circles, and that time of the month visits. It's mostly for the first two. For that reason, I need big containers. I didn't think pencil would be that easy but it actually is. I was pretty impressed. It's a lot easier than using concealers from pots/tubs, as well as, cleaner. I just need a pencil versus a brush. With that said, it's well-made and sturdy. It's made out of thick plastic. The top is also sturdy. I can feel a tight seal, as well as, a clicking noise when I open and close. I cannot see it open or break unless you are rough with the packaging. For this reason, it's travel-friendly. It's easy to throw in your purse, bag, and even your pocket. I like that it comes with a sharpener on the bottom. To be honest, I haven't used it and I cannot see myself using it. The pencil is a good width and don't need sharpening, or at least for me. Third, the consistency is creamy. It glides on and does not tug on the skin. With that said, it's easy to use. The direction says to make small dashes and pat with your finger. When you first draw, the concealer has slight shininess. Once you pat, the shininess disappears and blends with the skin. It leaves a nice, smooth texture that covers the acne. In all honesty, I was impressed how well it covered. It doesn't mention apply loose powder on top but I still did. It's just automatic without thinking. I'm used to applying powder on top of concealer. It feels weird if I don't. Plus, the powder is supposed to help the creamy consistency stay longer. Fourth, light/medium is a lot more salmon color than I'm used to for a blemish concealer. Salmon color will be great for under eye circles but it's not the point of this product. This concealer is to cover blemishes. Even though the color doesn't match me completely, it looks decent with my skin tone. It doesn't stand out unless you look real carefully. Pigmentation-wise I was impressed. It's probably one of the best I have seen for a blemish concealer. One layer was good enough for my blemishes. Lastly, it lasted all day on me. Since I have dry skin, most products do. If you have oily skin, there's a chance it might not last all day. I think it'll be great for normal to dry skin individuals. It cover small to medium size acne with no problem. If you have big acne, it might cover most of it. It'll be more work to cover acne with white pus and real red acne. I'm glad I got this product. I was pretty impressed!
