I have been looking into colour corrector products for a few weeks now as I have some dark colouring under my eyes I would like to minimise. I find using concealer to cover it often makes the makeup under my eyes too heavy. I do not wear a lot of face makeup and as I am getting older the reality is I am getting fine lines under my eyes. Too much makeup in this area looks terrible and feels uncomfortable.
So after researching I found Urban Decay’s Naked Skin range of colour correcting fluids. There are 5 in total. Each colour counteracts and corrects a certain colour within your skin tone:
Lavender – balances out sallowness and helps neutralise skin with a yellow undertone.
Green – counteracts spot redness, including blemishes and broken blood vessels.
Peach – covers dark circles, dark spots, veins and deep discoloration.
Pink – disguises dark circles, particularly on fair skin tones.
Yellow – perfect for concealing purple-hued dark circles or brightening complexions.
I picked the peach colour as I felt this was best suited to cover the dark areas under my eyes.
- It is an innovative, lightweight formula that instantly colour-corrects and blurs flaws, leaving skin illuminated and bright.
- Special pigment technology provides a smooth, even application every time.
- Contains antioxidant-rich vitamin C and vitamin E condition and protect.
I like the packaging for this product. It comes in a clear slim bottle allowing you see the product inside. I like this as it allows you to see how much product you have left. There is doe foot padded applicator attached to the lid which is really handy as you can apply it onto the skin with this and as it is padded it is soft on the gentle skin under your eye.
I experimented with this for a few days as I had read many reviews and people seemed to use it in different ways. So I tried them all to see which had the best impact on my skin. The best method I have found is to apply it after my primer. I use the doe foot applicator to dot the product under my eyes on to the dark areas. I also apply it to the corner of my inner eyelids, as it is quite dark there too. I apply quite a bit of the fluid. At first I only applied a few dots but it didn’t have much effect. I then use a damp beauty sponge, I use the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, which is one of my favourites, to blend and dab the fluid into my skin. I then apply my foundation and concealer as normal. When applying any products on top of the corrector fluid I dab with my sponge, as I do not want to disturb the fluid.
To be honest I was not impressed with this product at first. It did not work well at all. I tried it on top of my foundation and underneath. HOWEVER, when I started to add more of the fluid to my skin, it started to work amazingly. I now won’t go without it. It corrects my dark areas and brightens and illuminates the area too. I do not need to add as much concealer now either which is better as my skin does not feel as heavy. It is very lightweight and feels nice on the skin. It is quite expensive at £19.00 though, that is possibly my only gripe with this product but the overall effect on the skin is great. It lives up to all the claims. I’m really impressed and may possibly buy the Naked Skin concealer too as that has also had great reviews. The other colours are also receiving excellent reviews. I would definitely recommend this product.
It is £19 for 5ml from: www.feelunique.com and many department stores. Feelunique have an offer code for 10% off your first order when you first subscribe to their website.
