Essence Cosmetics has been knocking it out of the park lately with their newest arrivals, especially in the color correcting department glamour babes. I recently did a makeup haul on the essence website and went a little color correcting crazy. They have everything! There are so many things to choose from I couldn’t decide on what I wanted, so I kinda bought it all as you can tell from the picture above. Their BFF (30% off entire purchase) sale served me well. From loose powders, to multi colored pearls, to liquid concealers, to crayon sticks, and concealer palettes. I felt like a kid in a candy store and could not wait to flavor my selections once they arrived.
First up, Essence Cosmetics Color Correcting Liquid Concealers ($3.99 each). Those were the ones I wanted to try out first. I finally finished the Say No To Dark Circles, Redness, and Imperfections color correcting sticks, and I wanted to see how the liquid version performed.
So how does Wakeup Effect, No to Dark Circles, and Anti-Redness perform?Really nice actually. The formula is water based making them a wee bit sheerer than the concealer sticks, but this is something I don’t mind. I tend to go lighter with my bases during the summer months. I love the natural finish of each one, and how easily they brighten shadows and camouflage imperfections. However, If you prefer a color corrector with fuller coverage that won’t break the bank. You can try L.A. Girl’s H.D. Pro Concealer ($4.99), NYX’s color corrector palette ($11.99), or NYX’s Concealer in a Jar ($4.99 and is a dupe for Benefit’s Boing Concealer). I consider these HG budget friendly products to flawless skin without looking cakey.
The color correcting liquid concealers are lightweight, moisturizing, somewhat creamy, provide good pigmentation, are comfortable to wear, easy to apply, easy to blend, buildable on top of concealer or foundation, non-chalky, and set in a matte finish, providing sheer to medium coverage.
They are long lasting too! Skin stays matte and intact for hours and hours. Perfect for oily/combination skin. I highly recommend these color complexion changers. They made my skin happy.
Stay beautiful, xo.
