If you have been a reader of my blog for a little while you will know that I suffer with redness on my face and sometimes quite harsh blemishes on my face. I have been using colour correcting on those places for about 3 months now and I must say I actually feel like it does make a bit of a difference. To be fair I only use green colour correctors, I don’t colour correct anything else such as dark circles because I’m quite lucky not to have bad dark circles or other discolouration. Two products I use to help my blemishes are the Barry M Flawless Colour Correcting Primer and the Natural Collection Corrector Stick .
The Barry M primer was the first colour correcting product I actually ever tried. This really appealed to me because I always get such red cheeks due to an illness I suffer with and I find that this really calms down the harshness of the red and makes it a much more even base for my foundation to cover. Because this is a primer it’s just one product, not in a palette with 6 other colours I don’t actually need and it actually primes my skin.
The texture is slightly siliconey but I can deal with that. As I also have dry skin I don’t mind that it has a slightly greasy texture but I definitely don’t think this would be good for someone who is prone to oily patches or around the nose especially because it does become a little noticeable after 8 hours of wear.
The next colour corrector that I use is amazing. This gives off a lot more colour than the Barry M primer and basically turns anything red, white. I use this around the sides of my nose and on more precise spots of redness, this colour correcting stick is by Natural Collection. Although this is a stick I use my finger to apply this because I just feel like I get better use out of it that way.
The texture of this corrector stick is what makes it so nice to use. It blends really easily and spreads evenly over the blemishes I am trying to cover. I tend to use this as well as the Barry M primer because both products cover different areas better.
