THE WORLDS WORST COLOUR CORRECTOR

Hi guys!

A great tip to make your face look completely flawless when doing a full face of makeup is colour correcting. This involves using the colour wheel to conceal darkness, red spots or other flaws on the skin. For us dark skin ladies (and gentlemen) using an orange colour corrector under your foundation will cover up any dark spots of hyper-pigmentation, for those with fairer tones, peachy colours will do the same thing.

I was in Boots in Liverpool Street a few weeks back and was so excited to see the NYX counter there. A lot of the products called out to me, especially the NYX Concealer Jar, it can be really difficult finding good quality but cheap colour correcting tools so I jumped at the chance to give this a go.

WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY! I don’t mean to be rude, overall, I love this brand but this product is so difficult to use. It bunches up, its damn near impossible to blend and can make my makeup look really cakey. Less is so much more when it comes to colour correcting, but for this product to show up you need to apply too much of it. If anyone else has had more luck with this please let me know because it hurts my heart to waste makeup!

Instead of purchasing this product, I would suggest using the MAC Prep+Prime Highlighter in Peach Lustre, it is a lot more pricey – but, it will actually get the job done and give your skin a gorgeous finish. Alternatively, you can just use a really full coverage foundation like the MAC Studio Sculpt foundation.

Sorry that this review has been less positive, but I hope you found it useful. As always, thanks for reading!
