WHAT IS IT?
A concealer developed in a pencil format rather than the cream concealers we are more used to.
IS IT ANY GOOD?
At covering minor blemishes it's great, unfortunately the pencil drags too much across the skin and also sometimes causes a caked on appearance after you've applied foundation over it. The chunky shape of the pencil means you need a makeup pencil sharper that will hold these fatter than average pencils, I don't think it sharpens very well anyway as this creates a point that is far too sharp for a product such as concealer. The concealer is quite difficult to blend, more so than if you use a cream or powder concealer and it will only deal with very minor blemishes.
When applying the concealer it's tempting to just draw over the blemish as that would make sense based on the format of the product. In reality though you need to swipe the pencil across your skin and thicken the line with more swipes, something that is only possible with a bluntish pencil. As the concealer is only available in three shades you might not find one suitable for your skin tone, the poor blending requires you to wear foundation over the top anyway so as long as you choose the closest match you should be fine.
Just be careful not to over sharpen your concealer pencil, it not only makes it harder to apply but also means you're wasting the product as to have any chance of blending you'll need to rub the point down slightly before using it.
CONSUMER INTEREST INFORMATION
This concealer pencil is available in three shades and those are Fair, Medium and Dark. All are suitable for causican skin and the Dark shade is good for mixed race women who have skin of the coffee & cream variety. It costs around £10 and for this price there are better concealers available, personally I think you are paying for the novelty of having a pencil concealer.

We all get those little blemishes every now and then that are a pain to cover up. I'm a bit of a sucker for different products and as it was quite a cool eye catching design, I could not resist. I'd tried the product on the back of my hand and I was quite pleased with the ease it drew on my skin. The colour was great and I was excited to try it. The main selling point for me was the promise that the product contained vitamin E to help with the health of my skin.
I've used the TIGI concealer before but not the version in the stick and although I was not over the moon with it, I was fairy content with the results.
I paid £8.99 for the stick but I have recently seen the same product online for £5.99 for new on eBay.
I bought the light version of the concealer as I have fairly pale skin anyway and do not like using dark concealers as they create shadows. This pencil comes sharpened and the big downside of this product is that after a few uses, you need to sharpen it up. There is 3.9g of colour in the pencil and the consistency of the stick is really soft and it transfers really easily to the skin.
The product contains spot fighting ingredients including aloe vera to help sooth sore skin.
*Using the product*
The colour of the concealer stick is good and I find that it matches well with my skin tone. Once applied to the skin, I use my finger to blend it in. Surprisingly the stick dries quite invisibly and smoothes over problem areas and takes the visible redness of spots away. It does not draw attention to the skin by laying too thick over it and it does not flake off.
I have used the concealer stick on spots that are red and angry and it feels quite cooling and soothing and really do think that the plant extracts contained in the product are beneficial to my skin.
The stick is really easy to use and other than sharpening it, it is relatively mess free. The lid doesn't last long though and it has drawn all over my make up bag!
The downside definitely has to be keeping the pencil sharpened and unfortunately the speed I use the product means that it needs doing fairly regularly. I feel that I need to regularly keep topping this product up throughout the day and reapplying it.
I still own the product and it's still floating round my make up collection, I tend not to use it so much these days as I'm too lazy to sharpen it and now I have lost the lid, there does not seem much point. I prefer my Clarins airbrush concealer as I prefer a liquid product to a powder one.
There is nothing special about this product, but there is not that much to complain about. Would I recommend it? I guess the jury is still out.
Whilst having a little nosy in my TJ Hughes a couple of weeks ago picking up some Tigi shampoo, I also had a look at the makeup as you can get some great branded makeup at bargain prices. Now up until then I had no idea that Tigi made cosmetics as I have always known them as a British haircare brand created by Toni & Guy. I spotted the Tigi Bed Head Wipe Out Biggie Fixx It Sticks and decided that they were worth a try.
The stick looks more like a eyeliner pencil, but slightly bigger in diameter and it's quite small in length, so perfect to pop in your bag on a night out. The stick is blue in colour and then at the top, it shows the shade of the concealer. The pencil has the name is a peachy colour down the side, it was available in light and medium shades at TJ Hughes but I would assume that they would offer more tones as I know it is rare to find all shades in TJ Hughes.
When I use the stick, I tend to use it under foundation, I dab it on the area that I want to cover up and then rub it in with my finger and foundation, the concealer is quite soft and doesn't drag on your skin, transfering easily. It blends on smoothly and disguises the area that I'm trying to cover.
At first, my face looks flawledd and covers well but then comes the however. My problem is that after a couple of hours, it drys and makes my skin looked caked on creating creases and is obvious that I am wearing makeup, it just makes it looked really badly applied. Compared to my normal concealer, it just looks like I haven't bothered to rub it in and I would be disappointed if I had paid the full price of £10, even at £3, it will probably only be used for emergencies and I won't bother buying again.
Call me naive, but the only reason I bought a Tigi Bed Head Wipe Out Biggie Fixx It Stick is because I liked its name. I was putting together a make-up kit for my younger sister for Christmas - and this was something that jumped out at me because I know she's a fan of the Tigi range in general. However, this was something that she decided to donate to be because apparently the only concealer she will use is Benefit Erase Paste and so she didn't want this to go to waste and passed it on to me. It cost me £7.05 from my local chemist.
The Tigi Bed Head Wipe Out Biggie Fixx It Stick is essentially a standard concealer which comes in the form of a pencil. I tend to prefer the lipstick style concealers as they are soft and easy to blend in, and I had never used a pencil style concealer before (but there's a first time for everything!). In the chemist there was only the light shade available, but I understand that other shades are also available for darker skin tones - although I never think there is a massive difference between the tone colours anyway. The pencil point end was rather sharp to begin with and so I felt I had to rub it down a little before using it so that it was softer and easier to apply. Of course, this meant wasting some of the concealer - and I needed to do this each time that I needed to sharpen the pencil.....which was fairly regularly.
It was relatively easy to apply the concealer to the skin and to do so without putting on an excess of concealer. However, like I said, I did need to make the pencil more blunt in order to do this. However, once this was done, the end was quite soft and it was easy to apply the concealer to small areas with blemishes. It did blend in well and became "invisible" as all good concealers should be. It covered small red areas well and certainly detracted attention from them. It didn't dry my skin or become flakey or cakey - and so this was really positive. It was long lasting and would only need a little touching up after about 6 hours or so.
Removing the concealer was also easy with make-up wipes.
I probably won't buy this concealer again, purely because I like the application in the form of the lipstick concealer as its a bit less bothersome (i.e. you don't have to sharpen pencil - or blunt pencil). However, having said that, in terms of quality, I think its just fine and have no big issues with it.
While browsing in my local T J Hughes the other week (purely to find a cheap umbrella that I could "afford" to loose on a night out) I spotted some Tigi Bed Head products. Now normally I rarely visit this store but now and then I have found a bargain, them seem to have a different cosmetics range in every week as heavily reduced prices so I decided that a quick browse couldn't possibly hurt. There was a few different products available and an absolutely huge bowl full of Tigi Bed Head Wipe Out Biggie Fixx It Sticks which caught me eye immediately!
The Fixx It Stick looks like a pencil, but slightly fatter than your standard writing pencil and it's about three centimetres in terms of its height. It's blue in colour with a small area at the end of the pencil which shows the shade of the concealer and a matching light blue lid. The side of the pencil has the brand name and product name engraved on it in a peachy pink colour. The pencil is available in light and medium tones which are meant to match the majority of skin tones. Overall it looks like a standard concealer really; it wouldn't really stand out to be fair.
To use the stick you can either dab it gently on the area or blemish you want to cover up or onto your finger. I tend to opt for the latter option as I don't want the stick to come into contact with any blemishes in order to keep it cleaner. The stick itself is softer than a normal pencil, it's more like a soft eye pencil in that it's quite easy to transfer the concealer onto my finger. Once on my finger I gently dab it around the blemished area and blend it in softly. It goes onto my skin really easily and disguises any blemishes well too by covering them up.
Overall this concealer does cover blemishes fairly well and it doesn't dry out my skin at all. The only downside that I've found is that this concealer does go into the creases of my skin and it isn't completely even either in that it looks a little dry once it's been applied. If you look closely at it then it's evident I'm wearing concealer, it doesn't completely blend in like my other concealers do. I've seen this priced at anything from £3 in T J Hughes to around the £10 mark, it's currently available for £7.95 on Look Fantastic but I probably wouldn't bother again!
Thanks for reading.
