        I have been looking for a product to cover the redness around my nose, especially in the winter months, and I am delighted to have found this. It is the perfect product to cover redness and blemishes. However, I do not think it is as muti purpose as it claims, and I would not recommend it for under eye concealing or highlighting.

        While the product is creamy to apply, it sets quickly and with a matte finish. It is a bit thick in texture and a bit drying. For full coverage I use it straight from the pencil and then pat it in with my ring finger. For a more sheer coverage I swipe it on the back of my hand and use Bobbi's Touch Up Brush to apply. For blemishes I use a super fine eyeliner brush for pinpoint concealing. I love that it is in pencil form and therefore easy to throw in my purse for touch ups during the day.

        This is different from the BB Touch Up Stick in that it is far less creamy. Once set, it does not budge. I find the Touch Up Stick better for small areas where I want a bit more foundation coverage.

        I use BB Foundations in Beige and I bought the Retouching Face Pencil in Light to Medium. It is the perfect match. The color photo next to the product description does NOT represent the Light to Medium color accurately. (In fact, L to M looks even lighter than Light!). But the color swatch in the circle is much more accurate, as it reflects the yellow tone in this pencil.

        My skin is normal to dry so I couldn't imagine using this as a highlighter. It just doesn't have the consistency for that unless your skin is oily. I much prefer Shimmer Bricks or Illuminating Moisture Balm for beautiful illumination.

        I enjoyed this pencil for nearly 2 months, until it was time to sharpen. The sharpener couldn't handle the wood, which cracked and splintered leaving a mess. After several attempts it was obvious that the wood was defective and I wasn't going to be left with even a short but usable pencil. Can't return as I know longer have box or receipt. I'm giving it 3 stars since I liked it before the problem occurred. Hopefully it's a one-off.

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Retouching Face Pencil:

        I bought this in replacement of my face touch up stick as it was discontinued. I am a huge Bobbi Brown fan but I am really disappointed in this product. It's too dry and doesn't cover my blemishes as the touch up stick did. Please bring it back!

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Retouching Face Pencil:

        I've been in love with the retouching face pencil in Illuminate since the very moment I tried it. It's simply the best highlighter for me. In contrast to many other highligthers this one isn't too glittery or harsh but provides a very nice and natural sheen turning me from dull to bright in one instant! I repurchased it three times, this speaks volumes and for that reason: Please, dear Bobbi Brown and team, never discontinue this little gem!!

        Can't Do Without It

        By 

        from Atlanta, GA

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Retouching Face Pencil:

        I love this pencil! I have a lot of redness on my cheeks and chin - small red spots. I touch the red spots with this pencil after applying foundation, and they disappear like magic. If you get the right color, you don't have to blend. Blending can be difficult, because it tends to wipe off. With the right color, no blending is necessary. I like to make a mark on my hand to soften the tip before I use it on my face. It goes on easier that way. It lasts all day. I can't do without it - it makes my skin look flawless - which it most definitely isn't. People say I have great skin, and I think, "if only you knew." I wear the color Sand foundation and use the Light in this pencil.

        Great product to cover up minor skin discolorations and dark spots. Targeted spot application works best.

        A poor alternative to the touch up stick

        By 

        from London

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Retouching Face Pencil:

        Dry, flakey and to pink compared to the discontinued touch up stick. What is an alternative to my warm natural skin tone because this is too pink. The touch up stick was creamy so please bring it back! Even tried the foundation stick as a touch up, but it is too dry.

        NEED MORE SHADES!

        from NYC

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Retouching Face Pencil:

        I ordered mine in Medium and it did not suit me and I am a medium skin tone.
        Please bring medium with YELLOW undertone.
        I believe this is why it didn't work for me because it was too pink on me.
        I need to cover up the discoloration around my mouth.
        The touch-up stick had the yellow/peach undertone medium and it is discontinued.

        Convenience in a stick

        By 

        from Nampa, ID

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Retouching Face Pencil:

        I wear warm beige long wear foundation so I always get the light to medium color face pencil. I wear it as a concealer under my eyes and on any imperfections. You do need to have a moisturizer applied beforehand as it can be a little dry when applying if not. I like it for the convenience but wish they made it in an auto pencil instead of having to sharpen as it can scratch if getting to low.

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Retouching Face Pencil:

        I've tried several highlighting products and this pencil is the BEST! Makes my eyes pop when I use it as a liner on the bottom inner lid and it's non irritating and stays on. Great product! I hope BB never discontinues it because it's a staple and must have for me!

        Illuminate Retouching Face Pencil

        By 

        from New Hampshire

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Retouching Face Pencil:

        I usually have nothing but high reviews for Bobbie's products but this one did not work for me. It may simply be defective. It is not creamy like the other retouching face pencils. I was hoping for a touch of illumination below eyebrows. It is dry and does not really 'Illuminate'. Sorry to say.

        Retouching pencil

        By 

        from NZ

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Retouching Face Pencil:

        The sales lady said this product was wonderful for touching up during the day but I found it very dry and as it is around my eyes it does not blend. Very cakey. Very disappointed in BB as this is not a product I will ever buy again. It was very expensive too.
