I admit that I don’t do much colour correcting on myself and usually just hope for my foundation and concealer to mask the redness and discoloration I have on my face. Sometimes it does help but in most cases, those areas still shine through. I finally decided to challenge myself to try to do more colour correcting when I received Make Up For Ever’s new Ultra HD Underpainting Color Correction Palette.
It’s an all-in-one colour correcting cream palette with curated shades, depending on your skin tone, to give you an even, primed complexion that is long lasting. It contains a signature combination of coated pigments, powders and a blend of emollient oils that provides a second skin, seamless effect. The collection comes in 6 shade options that range from Very Fair (what I’m reviewing here) to Deep and each palette comes with two colour correcting shades and two concealers that give you a medium to full, buildable coverage that has a natural finish.
Price: $53 CAD / Available now at MakeUpForEver.ca & Sephora
The Very Fair palette comes with a light yellow and mauve for colour correcting and I found that the light yellow was more helpful with correcting dark circles and discoloration. I don’t have any sallowness in my skin or brown spots, so I use the mauve if my freckles need to be toned down a bit but it’s not a must use for me. What I wish was in here was a light green for colour correcting my rosacea. I know there is a light green in the Light palette but it looks like it would be a tad too dark on my skin tone, so it would be nice to have a lighter, paler green as an option in this palette.
My Glittery Thoughts:
The concealers are amazing and everything I was hoping they would be. I can use both of them under my eye, although I prefer the lighter shade for brightening, and they blend as easy and as smoothly as they claim to, leaving me with a natural skin-line finish. I prefer applying them with my finger or dabbing it on with a brush and blending it out with a sponge and both ways creates a natural, smooth finish. With the light yellow and concealer over top, my under eyes and the discoloured areas on my face look like I have never ever had to deal with any imperfections because they make my skin look like it was airbrushed to perfection. The consistency of all of the creams are very lightweight, buildable in coverage and creamy. They are long lasting as long as you use a setting powder because they don’t completely dry down and will transfer.
All in all, I’ve found my new favourite concealing palette because the results look so natural and everything melts beautifully into my skin. I would love to see them come out with more colour correcting options so I can swap out the mauve for a pale green but other than that, I’m in love!
