SMASHBOX – Colour Correcting Stick (Get Less Red) Review & Swatch

Price: $27 CAD
Size: 0.12 oz
Shade: Get Less Red (Green)


PACKAGING

The product comes in a sleek plastic ‘pencil’ form which makes storing and travel easy. The plastic material is also a plus because sharpening tends to become messy with wood like material, this way the sharpening scraps come off cleanly and in one piece. The product also includes an appropriately size sharpener, which works great. Overall, the packaging is simple and clean, stores easily and sharpens cleanly.


PRODUCT

The colour corrector is a creamy formula that glides extremely smoothly onto the skin. It also applies the perfect amount onto the skin; a light thin layer that is buildable and light weight. As for pigmentation the product is highly pigmented and requires little to no effort to make a difference on red areas. The creamy formula blends well into the skin and your foundation however it does not set as quickly as I would wish. This does allow the product to move around if not set by powder. However, when it is fully blended out it does turn into a slight powdery texture which gives the product its smooth feel. Unfortunately, because of its stick formula I would only recommend this product to be used as a spot corrector (acne spots or around the nose) and not a corrector for larger areas. Overall, this product is great for spot correction as it is easy to apply and blends into the skin smoothly. However, it does need to be set with powder if you do not want the product to slip and slide around.
