I *may* have found my holy grail concealer in the Urban Decay 24/7 Concealer Pencils!
I have had a long hate/hate relationship with concealer. I’ve tried so many brands and types from creams, to pencils, to liquids to powders and nothing made me happy for more than a short time period. Even tried a myriad of “potions” under the eye to prime it before concealing and nothing lasted long.
The main problem I have with concealer is I am, ahem, at that age where I have a lot of fine lines under my eye area. Concealers tend to immediately gravitate into those lines, settling and making me look older, rather than well rested and bright-eyed. No bueno!
These pencils aren’t new per-se, they actually are the same ones they’ve had, but in new packaging and they added four new darker shades. They are however new to me since I’ve never tried them!
They come in eight different shades now, from very light to a deep cocoa. They contain Vitamin E, are long-wearing, creamy, tug-free, thick but not too thick, and blend easily into the skin. Seriously you barely have to press them onto your skin and they glide right over it. They’re also formulated with Microsponge, which is a technology that absorbs excess oils throughout the day.
