I bought my NYX color correcting palette in early November, and it has proven to be an excellent investment! The regular price at Ulta is about $12, but I got mine for only $5 and change after an exchange and a coupon. The palette includes a yellow, green, lavender, salmon, peach, and brown, and I find that I get good use of every color. Here's what I use them for: Yellow: blueness in my inner eye area, sometimes for highlighting Green: red blemishes, and sometimes on the orange discoloration around my mouth and the "glasses marks" on my nose, also if I have a lot of redness around my eyes Lavender: usually use this for my aforementioned orange discoloration Salmon: purple dark circles under eyes Peach: can also use this on dark circles (I find that this can be used interchangeably with the salmon) Brown: bronzing (too warm for contouring) As you can see, there are some areas of my face where more than one color can be used to achieve almost the same result. Each pan holds only 0.05 oz. or 1.5g of product, which I suppose is appropriate considering there are six different colors in the palette. That's $2 per color! When I first bought this product, the consistency was a bit dry, making it drag a little on the skin. However, there is an easy solution to this: Apply one drop of jojoba oil to a flat concealer brush, or swirl the brush a little in a jar of coconut oil, removing any excess oil on the back of your hand, then apply the color corrector of your choice. Luckily, after using this palette more, I find that I no longer need to add anything to the product and can use it as is. After applying the corrector, apply foundation. I use a blending sponge, using it to blend the color corrector as well. I actually don't use my regular concealer under my eyes very often anymore, since I find that the salmon or peach on my dark circles is usually sufficient. Finally, I apply my powder and the rest of my face makeup as usual. Wonderful palette; would buy again.

I received two of these new Maybelline Master Camo Color Correcting Pens (Green and Apricot) in a VoxBox and had the opportunity to try them out and review them. Even though the product was complimentary, my opinions on the product are honest. These Camo Color Pens come in green, apricot, blue, pink, yellow, and red. The blue is supposed to correct shallowness on lighter skin tones, the pink is supposed to fight dullness on lighter skin tones, the yellow is supposed to fight dullness on light to medium skin tones, and the red is supposed to counteract darkness on darker skin tones. I received the apricot and green that are supposed to counteract dark circles and redness in lighter skin tones. Color correctors are used under your foundation/concealer by applying the opposite colors on the color wheel to counteract your problem areas. The product is .05 FL oz or 1.5 ml. This might at first, seem small, but since it's used sparingly just to counteract discoloration in particular spots it has the potential to last a long time. From what I can tell, it does not have a smell. The product comes in a pen-like skinny and tall tube with a curved doe foot-esc applicator. This is the most unique applicator I have ever seen. It is extremely soft and gentle, so it is not rough on the skin. I feel this is really great since skin around acne or under your eyes can be really delicate or irritated so a gentle applicator is amazing. The tip is similar to that of Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer, which has a cult following. Lastly, for the most important part, the pigmentation. This is one of the most pigmented color correctors I have used, which means they do a great job of covering under eye darkness and redness from acne. Just dab a little bit on the problem areas after primer (wait for it to dry) and then apply foundation over it and the discoloration is gone. All in all, I love this color corrector and I will for sure be repurchasing.

If you are anything like me and have dark under eyes, whether from genetics or lack of sleep, this product was meant for you! I absolutely swear by it. The pink color with luminescent pearls does a wonderful job of color correcting the darkness. The creamy finish of the product also makes it super long lasting for all day wear. It can stand alone or you can add to it with concealer and other highlighting elements to draw the right kind of attention to your eyes, and not the kind that makes people ask if you got enough sleep the night before. Life saving and a must have! Amazing product,

The Touche Eclat neutralizer in green worked wonders when it came to concealing my under eye dark circles as well as concealing the red areas on my cheeks, eyelids, and around my nostrils. The applicator was very easy to use. The tip of the applicator has very soft bristles and the bottom of the applicator has a button which helps dispense the correct amount of product. This product was very pigmented and i felt that a little bit of product went a long way. It was easy to blend and it was very lightweight. I am excited to try out the other colors from this makeup line.
