This is my first time ever trying a color correcting palette that I've tried, and I've got mixed emotions about it. First, I love that there's four different colors, and the back of the palette itself has the exact same design as the box so you know which colors are for what issues.
The product itself is incredibly smooth. I'm using a small concealer brush to apply it, but you can also use your fingers. I've tried different methods and different amounts, with different brush strokes and fingers. I feel like it goes on pretty well initially, and it does provide some opaque coverage. Once I used my damp sponge to apply my Illuminare foundation, I feel like that all just goes away. I will say that it does help my under eyes A LOT. I haven't been sleeping well, and I have been having a rough time lately, but the lavender does really help.
Here's a before and after:
The lighting is different for both, despite trying to make it exactly the same. This coloring has some red tint to it. But, you can see the lavender under my eyes and the yellow covering any scarring and red marks.
You can kind of see some of the remaining color corrector, but I did do some more blending after the fact. Once I added my powder on to, it was better. I do think it does help some honestly, but I'm going to keep playing around with colors and mixing them. I've been mixing the yellow and orange/red together, and I think that layering helps.
Overall, I like it and I think it does add another layer of camouflage to the insecurities I face with my face. My disease causes acne, and I scan almost instantaneously, so this is a part of my life, despite using products that are meant for acne. The only cure for scarring, is time. But, anything I can do in the meantime to help minimize the embarrassment, I certainly will try it.
Have you ever tried a correcting palette? What are your thoughts? I'd love to hear them!
