Erborian Touch Pen Complexion Sculptor and Concealer ($31) is a new click pen concealer that can be used under eyes to conceal dark circles or anywhere on the fact that is in need of concealing or correcting. The formula is enriched with centella asiatica which is apparently known for it’s smoothing properties.
Here’s my review and swatches!
I’ve had a rather long and winding road with Korea Brand, Erborian. It’s a brand well loved by K-Beauty fans but I actually don’t really like a lot of their offerings or at least that was the case until I tried their Touch Pen Complexion Sculptor and Concealer.
The Touch Pen Complexion Sculptor and Concealer is rather expensive and small (0.16 oz) but after trying it out for size I can safely say I’d likely re-purchase it. This comes in a click pen with an attached fluffy sponge applicator much like the ones we’ve seen on Visee CC Concealer and Burberry Cashmere Concealer. In order to use, you simply click the bottom of the pen and concealer flows into the applicator which can be swiped under eyes and blended out with fingers. A lot of people hate this style of applicator as it isn’t exactly hygienic but I actually like them! It makes for really easy application and you can even use the little puff to gently blend the color out.
The concealer has a lot going for but shade selection isn’t one. They only have two shades available one for lighter tones and one for medium tones. I got the medium tone and even that ran quite light. Keep that in mind prior to a purchase.
The formula is divine. It’s runs thicker but it’s creamy and very easy to blend. It’s everything I love about a concealer formula and everything I wish other brand’s would embrace. It’s lightly hydrating, blends super easily under my drier, finely lined eyes, and it’s pigmented enough to conceal my puffy, tired eyes and finer lines. It’s also quite brightening which gives me the appearance of being well rested when in fact I’m not. I wouldn’t say the coverage is full but you can at the least get medium coverage from the formula. It’s also moist enough that powder wears well over it without looking cakey or dry. The wear was fantastic for me when I set with powder and I got all day eye brightening coverage without fading. However, it does seem to have a knack for creasing and wearing shorter (fading at hour five) when I don’t set with powder. Just a tiny touch of powder helps a lot to keep it looking smooth and long-wearing!
Erborian Touch Pen Complexion Sculptor and Concealer is a great little concealer. I thought it concealed my pesky under eye issues well and did so with a delightfully easy to apply and blend formula that wasn’t drying.
