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. ...read more
