Essence Color Correcting Liquid Concealer Review:

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. 

Essence Cosmetics Color Correcting Liquid Concealer is available at Use Code FRIYAY25 all weekend for 25% off. Plus free shipping on US orders over $15.Happy hauling!

Stay beautiful, xo. 

Wet n Wild Mega Cushion Color Corrector Review:

When Wet n Wild released their new Mega Cushion Color Corrector ($5.99), I knew I had to have all four immediately in my possession glamour babes.I have grown fond of these lovely little cushion compacts that have a ton of bounce and excellent color coverage.Unfortunately, I could not find the Mega Cushion Color Correctors at any Walgreens stores near my location, so I had to order them through Wet N Wild’s website and patiently wait. Thank god there are seven days in a week. If I had to wait any longer, my mailman would have felt the wrath of a makeup junkie, claws and all, lol. Sorry mailman!

I can safely say that Mr. Postman delivered my four neutralizing bouncy bundles of joy in one piece, and I was happily ready to play with them all. 

Green counterbalances redness.Yellow counterbalances dullness or dark circles.Peach counterbalances dark circles or skin imperfections such as dark spots.

Lavender counterbalances sallowness (washed out complexion).The formulation is lightweight, creamy, pigmented, comfortable to wear, smooth, and they’re easy to blend and build when creating a natural healthy look. The Mega Cushion compacts include a nice cushiony applicator puff, but I found a blending sponge and small oval brush to be effective for even applications, or the tip of your finger to cover smaller areas.

I do love that these do not clog pores or produce a noticeably oily t-zone when wearing them throughout the day with other mediums (concealer, foundation, bb cream, face powder, etc….). My skin stayed intact without looking cakey or heavy for hours. I will say that I found the yellow corrector to be more useful than the peach corrector to neutralize dark circles. I felt the blue undertones my dark circles carry were concealed successfully with the application of concealer. The peach corrector works amazingly well on dark spots and deep discolorations. As for green and lavender? I have no complaints. The green cancels redness out effortlessly, and lavender will put the pep back into your complexion in no time flat.

Don’t forget boys and girls, Wet n Wild made their Mega Cushion collection friendly to all, including you veganites! May your day be as flawless as your makeup!

Stay beautiful, xo.
