ELF Cosmetics Color Correcting Stick (Green, Lilac, Peach) Review:


Well, its about time ELF Cosmetics decided to come to the colorful side and create their own Color Correcting Concealer Stick! I have been waiting FOREVER for this to happen glamour babes! Haven’t you?!
I absolutely love, love, love ELF concealer. It’s super duper affordable, blends beautifully, provides great coverage, and I never ever breakout, EVER! I’ll get the occasional white head here and there, but those are easy to take out with a pore extractor, blemishes not so much, lol.

What are color correcting concealers? They are concealers that come in an array of colors that target skin concerns to instantly help cancel and neutralize color imperfections, creating a more flawless and even complexion.

What shades does ELF have?

Green, Lilac, Peach, and Orange (suitable for deeper skin tones).


What does each shade do?

Green helps to reduce redness from rosacea, sunburns, and blemishes.

Lilac helps brighten sallowness or yellowness for a healthy looking glow.


Peach helps to illuminate and conceal dark circles or hyperpigmentation on light skin tones.

Orange helps to illuminate and conceal dark circles or hyperpigmentation on deeper skin tones.

ELF’s Color Correcting Sticks are twistable, smooth, creamy, lightweight, infused with vitamin E for hydration, are blendable, easy to use and produce medium coverage.

You can use these under or over your favorite foundation, BB Cream, CC Cream, and/or Concealer, they are pretty buildable, and do not cake up. They literally melt into the skin during applications and have a good amount of hydration. I wouldn’t wear the green or lilac on naked skin. Even though they blend in effortlessly, I noticed there was a subtle hue of pastel colors lingering when the natural light hit my skin. To fix this, I just use ELF’s HD liquid concealer ($3) on top of the green, and lilac to achieve an even mix when used together. Use your blending sponge when using these concealers, it works wonders! Redness from my blemishes are muted, dark circles have disappeared, and that sweet shade of lilac brightens up my whole face. I have not yet to break out when wearing them all together, and they hold up well. I didn’t need to touch up my skin for a full 8 hours. My skin looked flawless with a capital F, and some setting spray didn’t  hurt either, lol.

As of right now, ELF’s Color Correcting Concealers ($4) have not yet reached all of their stores, they are available online. I could not wait to get mine so, obviously I ordered them through the site, lol. To check if the newest items have arrived you could always call the closest ELF Store near you. The sales representatives are always happy to help from what I have experienced. I get lovely, helpful girls all the time.

Are you going to try them?! Which shade will it be?! Green? Lilac? Peach? Orange?! All of the above?!

I gotta know! The suspense is killing me! Don’t forget to leave your comments below (wink).

Stay beautiful! Xo.

Essence Say no to Dark Circles and Say no to Imperfections Review:

image

Every time I want to review Essence Cosmetics Say no to Dark Circles, and Say no to Imperfections retractable concealers, I always end up getting side tracked by some other makeup product that excites me to the core like, lipstick, highlighters, mascara, and more lipstick (lol), making me cast aside the idea of writing a review for these two makeup must haves, but not this time glamour babes!

Today, it’s all about brightening up those peepers, while saying peace out bean sprout to some undesirable attributes us goils like to call imperfections.

Essence Say no to Dark Circles and Say no to Imperfections are worth keeping in the makeup bag, car, or office drawer at all times, they seriously do the trick for quick touch ups on the go.

As you can see in my photo, I tote these portable babies around a lot in my makeup bag, just look at the the wear and tear of them. Yea, you could say they get a good beating as I dress my face, lol.

They are so easy to use and blend into the skin beautifully, creating no streaks! God, I love concealers that can do this, why can’t all of them be formulated this way? There is a third called Say no to Redness, which is a green concealer that cancels out redness, obviously, uh-duh!

image
Say no to imperfections is a color correcting natural beige that hides general imperfections (acne scars, blemishes, redness) for a quick solution.


I told you I gave these concealer crayons a good beating, take a look at that nub, shouldn’t it look slender and perfectly pointy much like a crayon?! Well, they did when I first bought them, gotta test the merchandise though to let you know if this stuff works or not, ya know what I’m sayin? Lol.

Could I agree with the description above? Yes and no, for a concealer that is labeled a natural beige shade, I felt it applied a bit too yellow on my fair skin when worn alone. I found that wearing a foundation, BB Cream, or CC Cream cancels out that yellowy undertone and brings out the natural beige perfectly, erasing imperfections and redness quickly and effectively. If I choose to wear a color correcting concealer alone, I find that Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid in Peach ($28) or Sephora’s Bright Future Collection in the peach ($14) shade covers really nicely. And, here’s your dupe of the day!  Baaaaa-Zing!

Say no to Dark Circles is a color correcting bright rose shade that hides dark circles immediately!

I was using the Physicians Formula Touch of Glow Nude Wear Pen (pretty slender girly one with the pink bow cap) for my dark circles, but I decided to try something different and opted for Essence Cosmetics $2.99 version, and it works heavenly. I do have pretty dark circles, and this bright rosy shade seriously conceals them almost instantly. The silky soft formula (say no to imperfections has the same formula) glides under the eyes smoothly and blends in evenly, giving those raccoon eyes of mine a much softer, brighter outlook on concealer crayons (wink).
Both concealers are lightweight, provide medium coverage, giving skins texture a satiny powdery feel. They do not clog pores, and work best on fair to medium skin tones with normal to combination oily skin. Essences Say no to Imperfections, and Say no to Dark Circles is available at Ulta Beauty, and select Target stores.
Stay Beautiful! Xo.
