Very nice concealer
I was in the market for a new concealer and I figured, why not try UD? And after using this for 2 weeks, I think it's a great product. Unlike other concealers, this glides on easily and doesn't look cakey when it dries. And I really love that it's a pencil, which makes it easy to carry around and apply on the go. My only complaint is the coverage. I have acne scars and this doesn't quite cover them as well as I'd like. But what it does cover stays covered for several hours, so that is a nice bonus. I'm fair-skinned and the lightest one was way too light, so DEA might be a good choice if you are on the fence. I would definitely recommend this if what you're trying to cover isn't extremely dark.

Urban Decay's 24/7 Concealer Pencil is creamy and provides full-coverage for redness and blemishes. It stays tacky for a few seconds after it's applied to let you blend it and after that it stays put all day. My only complaint is that Urban Decay hasn't given this product's packaging a makeover yet - my pencil has the old logo on it. I'd expect them to fix that on the most recently manufactured pencils, though. Also, the second time I was using this (in the car while my brother was driving us to a party), the entire tip fell off! There was much cursing, haha - I'm sure I just had bad luck and pressed too hard on one side or something. I would recommend this product to anyone. I have extremely fair skin and CIA isn't too dark. Love it!

This product is awesome, I use it for my dark circles and it's the best thing I've found. The quality of the actual product is great, BUT you are really paying $20 for an extremely small amount of make-up. The way they make the pencil look like it rolls up for more product is extremely deceiving and, unfortunately, I will never buy the product again because it only lasted three weeks . . . that's nearly $400 a year just for under eye make-up. Shame on UD for making such deceiving packaging and charging a premium (as a consumer, you should at least know what you're paying for).

NEEDS A GREATER RANGE OF COLORS
I am a HUGE UD lover! But, they REALLY disappointed me with the range of colors available...I am a beautiful chocolate brown (12.0 in the NAKED foundation) and the darkest concealer pencils (KGB & M16) look like matches for someone no darker than a person who wears a 6.0 or 7.0 in NAKED.
How can UD describe the darkest concealer pencils as fitting for the deepest/darkest complexions when they only covered half the spectrum?!
The formula seems pretty creamy and I know that I would love the application, so HURRY UD and make TRUE colors fro your chocolate and caramel beauties!

My secret weapon
I love this pencil in C.I.A., not to cover blemishes, but as a highlighter under my brows, in my cupids bow and around my nose. I've got all my friends and family hooked. Trust me, this is the best. You get a lifted, lightened look in those areas without having obvious shimmer like that most highlighters provide. I always use this last to finish off my look and it really gives my face a more polished effect. Super creamy, easy to blend and C.I.A. is the perfect color for woman with lighert complexions.
July 26, 2011
I cannot say enough great things about this. I bought C.I.A. as my skin is extremely light. I have never needed concealer before but I recently noticed that when I don't get enough sleep I am actually starting to get dark circles under my eyes, and I never have before. On a whim, I got this pencil. It covers extremely well, and is really easy to use. I have never used one before this but I can't imagine a better one. It glides right on, blends like a dream. I think this pencil is my new best friend.

Glides right on!
As a makeup artist I look for certain things in my concealers. I look for concealers that glide onto the skin without sitting on top of it. These concealers do that. They are amazing! They stay on very well even layered on top of an eye cream. The shades are also great to choose from because they aren't all yellow some are beige tone. I do wish they came out with a salmon color selection in three different tones like light medium and dark. I like the option of salmon, yellow, and beige. I also love that this brand is vegan friendly which means they don't have the harmful ingredients most brands have out there!

So convenient to use!
I got this concealer in DEA at Ulta where i had it matched to me and i fell in love! The blendability is great, not too oily but not where you tug at your eyes. Only drawback is sharpening, i havent had any problems but i heard if you stick it in the fridge before you sharpen it, it will prevent too much loss during the sharpening.

Got Ride of My DARK Circles!! :D
I've been hunting a concealer for so long for my DARK under eye circles. they are extremely dark unfortunately :( so its hard to find anything that will cover them. This product works VERY well!! Its very smooth, creamy and easy to work with. Although on me it does crease a tiny bit but I don't mind touching it up ever now and then(could be because of the extreme heat or because I don't set it with a powder) I bought mine at a store and I got it home and about to try it the tip broke off :/ not UD's fault probably just been roughly handled its time at the store I bought it from. I still love it and still I'd recommend it to other people with my problem! ^.^

Awesome for reddness blemishes
I purchase DEA to help me with under eye circles and red acne blemishes. The colour is beautifully opaque, easy to blend and is best applied underneath primer/foundation. I find that it is best to put on your primer/foundation with a stipple brush, instead of doing circle motions to not disrupt the concealer.
I love the fact that is in a pencil form, so it is easy to apply and keep on my person. I am also a very light-skinned cool tone, and I found that this worked out wonderfully without coming off too warm, even when I reapply it over the top of the foundation (mostly due to the fact that I forget I wear makeup and rub my face on occasion).
Overall I love this product and would buy it again.

When i first put this product on i loved it! i got NSA and i have rather fair skin but this worked on the dark bags under my eye but it was a little more yellow than i had hoped. it was really easy to put on and blend and covered up my dark circles, but no so well my blemishes. when i almost got to the end of the product is when i realized that i couldn't twist the bottom to get more so i ran out within a couple of days. it really bummed me out, because i wanted to at least have it for a month because i payed a lot for a little bit of concealer.to at least make it last though the month i would have to stock up on them but it is a lot of money for something that is only 3.5 grams.

I have very dry skin under my eyes, so I have a hard time wearing concealer as it is not very forgiving to exposing the flakiness of my dry under eye area. Besides trying a million different eye creams to help fix this problem, I have been trying to find a concealer that helps moisturizes as well as cover my dark circles. I was very unsure about this concealer, but I tried it any ways. So far, it has been the only concealer that doesn't cake up, or settle into lines.
Also, I have been using this as a highlighter as well. It's so nice to be able to use one product for different tasks than to have to use three, which is what I was using before I found this. I will definitely be buying this again and again :-)

This concealer glides on easily. I am not a light skinned or dark skinned african american girl, fall somewhere in the middle but had to get the darkest shade in the concealer. Originally ordered in DOD but was way too light so exchanged for M16, and this matched great. Beware colors are lighter than they appear. But overall it gives great coverage in a very creamy formula make sure you prime or moisturize underneath so that it does not settle into any imperfections.

absolutely loving the texture and coverage!
i just got this in the mail a couple of days ago and i have to say i instantly fell in love with it! i'm always leery of buying products like this online because my skin tone is weird and it may not work like i had hoped, but so far disappointment has not even been near the radar with this product! i have horrible dark under eye circles and have a hard time finding products that have lasting coverage. i was able to use this on my dark circles and blemishes, where i'd typically have to use two or three different products to cover everything!

The Houdini of all concealer pencils!
There aren't many words I can say except for, OH MY GOSH THIS STUFF IS THE BOMB! It's so light I hardly even feel it. It's perfect for coverups, works freaking wonders! So stinking easy to blend. I have never had concealed quite like this. This product was like magic for my scarred crater face!

Very nice concealer
This is my first time using a stick/pencil concealer. I was pleasantly surprised that it is very smooth upon application. I'm always worried about it being cakey or tugging on the skin--especially under my eyes. The coverage is great and it is long lasting. I really like the ease of the pencil and the quality. The shades online are a little deceiving to the eye (prob depends on your screen resolution, etc) so I had to exchange for the next darker shade--but now it's great!

Smooth and Creamy
I don't typically use pencil concealers as the product for me is rarely creamy or blendable enough...but these are definitely the exception to that. The pencil contains plenty of concealer, and you can either apply directly with the pencil tip, or with your fingers. It is smooth and blends very well without any effort. It didn't get cakey or obvious, either- you couldn't tell that I was wearing it at all. I've used a lot of fancy concealers but I love the simplicity of this one and have recommended it to several of my friends already.

Best concealer I have come across
This concealer works wonder on my dark eyes, I'm college student and after a night in the studio this does the trick. I got this in the darkest shade and it's a little light for me. It's a little tough to get it to blend but I put it on under my foundation and use that brush. I've considered getting the brush for these products but I'm not sure if it's worth it since it blends well with my optical blurring brush. The grindhouse sharpener is a must for this product, if you use it right you can get the most out of your product with it. I wish there were more shades but overall a great product.

Best Concealer Stick
I love this mostly for the fact that it gets rid of the dark circles under my eyes as well as the slight blemishes or discolorations of my skin. As I get older my skin doesn't stay as fresh, but using this with the new Naked foundation I look and feel fresh and young!

All time favorite concealer
This is the best concealer I've used. I've tried almost every concealer under the sun. Most I've found to be too sticky, too heavy, really cakey, don't cover enough or cover to much or the colors never matched me. I have warm tones skin, but it edges neutral because I am so light and most concealers are too yellow or too pink. These are the perfect balance of color and are another staple for when I do make up at work. They are creamy and melt into the skin flawlessly, but are in a convenient stick so you can pop it in your purse. The only downside too it, is there aren't very dark colors.

Don't put too much!
I love this concealer- just make sure you don't put too much! less is more with this stuff for sure. A pencil isn't very hygienic for acne either- if you dab this on your zits and use them to cover lesser things you might be passing on more bacteria (IMO). I use a brush I clean when I apply it myself, and that works really well.
This conceals more than other concealers I've tried, so I highly recommend it!

Great spot concealer
This concealer pencil is great for spot application and hides blemishes well since it is so bendable. It also works great as a light alternative to foundation. I just put a few lines of the pencil across my face and blend in, and it works to hide complexion imperfections like red spots and blotchiness.
The concealer stays put all day and provides great wear-ability.

This is the best under eye product on the market !
24/7 is a great product that covers dark circles under the eyes and doesn't look cakey. It is so easy to apply, natural and lasts all day.

Great on-the-go undereye concealer!
I'm so glad I snagged one of these with my last order! It's a wonderful addition to my purse - excellent for low-maintenance touchups when I don't want to pull out my liquid concealer. I've found that the pencil is best for undereye circles and the red bits around the nose and mouth. Not so much for blemish concealing, though - my Makeup Forever concealer beats it there. A couple of hurried application days has pretty much convinced me that the UD pencil wins against MUF in the undereye department - it's smoother and doesn't crease as easily, and it looks more natural for it.

I LOVE IT.. IT WORKS GREAT NOTHING COMPARES TO Ud it is so effective and does its job perfectly

Perfect for me!
I went looking for anything to use on my skin. I'm very fair, and as the day goes on many foundations or powders would end up giving me that mask look because my neck would be lighter than my makeup. I tried the cia in this concealer stick and was shocked. I put it on with a brush and it covered all of my pink spots and acne so well. I wouldn't have put anything over it since it did what I wanted and matched my skin, but it was so fair that I ended up looking a bit too pale. I put a touch of powder and blush on my cheeks and now my skin is flawless all day. UD made a fantastic option by making this in more colors. I definitely recommend this to anyone with skin they dislike or find difficult to match to makeup.

I've been using this particular concealer (shade CIA) for months now and I can hardly fault it. It has a nice, creamy consistency, applies to the skin smoothly and lasts me nearly all day without having to re-apply.
I have a very pale complexion and although I am using the lightest shade Urban Decay has to offer, I personally wouldn't mind it being a touch lighter. Nevertheless, it covers very well. '24/7' is quite a bold statement to make about a cosmetic product, however, after trailing a countless number of other concealers this one has the most lasting powder...so far!

A Concealer Worth Writing About
I have tried many concealers, so any concealer that states “24/7” on it, I have to try out. I have combination skin, with an oily T-zone, so most concealers slip and slide, and just don’t have much lasting power. I purchased shade FBI and it’s a good match. Urban Decay’s 24/7 Concealer Pencils apply like a dream – it’s creamy, soft, and richly pigmented, so will cover any flaws or imperfections with ease. I love the pencil form, you can apply it exactly were you need to, it provides easy and quick application, is convenient to use, and you can throw it into your makeup bag and take it with you. The bendability is superb, it won’t set into fine lines or separate, once set. This has become my favorite concealer ever.

I have been looking for a product like this for years.
Seriously, you have no idea how long I have been looking for a product like this. Excited to finally have found it. Easy to apply. Multi-use. Perfect.
I use these several ways. I will start with the good. I use my shade (the fair-light) on my inner rims. Better than white, although I do have the rare almost white complexion (t@rte agent00 or fair, fairs in be are all too dark) that can get away with white on my inner rims (you have to be very pale for white to work on inner rims). Better for most is a flesh toned liner, or a shade one or two lighter depending on skin tone. This stick has everyone covered. No irritation when I us on my inner rims, but not sure it is recommended for such use. Be cautious if you have sensitive eyes or wear contacts. I like to use a shade one darker for contouring. I wish this came in a fairer shade. I know it may be hard to believe, but the fair shade just is not fair enough for me to use on my face for covering pimples/scars. It would be great for that, if your skin tone can be matched or mixed using these. Very easy, just dot it on.
The negatives. I do not love this for under eye circles. I prefer color corrective concealers formulated for the under eye area. I also prefer something a bit more moisturizing. This can be a little drying there. One of the reasons I would love this for pimples. The other negative is that there is not a true fair color. If you are fairly light, the fair-light shade will work. If you are truly fair (wear the fairest shade a company makes always and 9/10 companies it is still too dark) this may be too dark as it was on me. I gave my skin tone match, and what does not match, in other brands so you can compare and hopefully find your perfect shade when you order if you are similar. I say it again. I wish this (all UD face makeup actually) came in a true fair color. I would also love this in white or almost white. Then I could use it to highlight as well. I am one of the few people with the skin tone that looks best with a white or almost white highlight.
I would buy it again, for what I use it for. I am anxiously awaiting fairer colors.

Skeptic no longer....
I have used so many different concealers that just weren't at all a good match for me, so I avoided UD's concealer pencil. I could have saved myself a lot of money had I tried it when my instincts said to. For me, it was everything other reviewers said it would be. The only pain is "sharpening" the pencil. But there is so much more control with applying with the pencil that I don't care. KGB being "orangey" suited me surprisingly enough and now I know this is MY concealer of choice. With as great a return policy as UD has, I will never second guess trying a product.
