The color corrector comes in an interesting packaging, it reminds me of deodorant packaging. It is a white hard plastic, palm size stick with a swivel on the bottom that pushes the product up. The cap lightly clicks into place, but the extremely smooth surface makes it a little hard to remove the cap. I recommend holding onto the black swivel and pulling on the top while applying slight pressure. The swivel works smoothly and I have not had any complications. Lastly, the size and shape makes this colour correct a little less travel friendly than others. Overall, the look and feel of the packaging is amazing, besides the minor struggle when removing the cap, the packaging is unique and keeps the product safe.
This colour corrector is a little different from others on the market. First, would be its skinny oval shape which works great for going over high points on the cheek. However, it makes reaching and targeting smaller areas a little more difficult as it is a little awkward to work with. Second, would be its texture/consistency, which is cream but also a powder. When you apply it to the skin it smoothes on like a cream, however when you use your fingers to blend it out it feels like a powder to the touch. This creamy powder texture makes the product feather light and blends easily into the skin. The texture also does not crease like creamy products would, which minimize the need to set the product with powder. As for pigmentation the product has light to medium pay off. The products are also a ‘hybrid’ style corrector which means that they have combined 2 types of correctors into one product. So they go as follows
Bright Now: pink and lilac = dullness & dark circles
Co(vert) Affairs: citron and lime = redness
Getting Warmer: peach and caramel = hyperpigmentation
Overall, the texture is the highlight of this product as it is a creamy powder that does not require setting powder. It blends and smooths onto the skin effortlessly and provides your skin with a light and natural correction. It lasts a good majority of the day and is weightless on the skin all while avoiding seeping into fine lines. On the down side because it is a stick like format it makes delivering the product to spot correct a little difficult without a brush. It is more of a medium to large area colour corrector. These things aside it is a fairly easy product to use and would be a great introductory product to color correction.
This shade is a combination of pinks and purples which work great to combat dullness in the skin. Its pigmentation is light which works to give you a natural brightening effect. This unfortunately was not strong enough to combat my dark circles however, it worked great on points I wanted to bring out, like the high points of my face (ex. cheeks and forehead).
