I think that everyone is aware by now that Makeup Revolution (at the moment the undisputed king/queen/it of dupes) are launching a corrector palette, meant to help you achieve flawless skin. I don`t know if it was released yet or it sold out everywhere, but after hunting it in 5 Superdrugs I gave up. Then, when I thought all hope was lost, I spotted this little kit from MUA. I know that now everyone it`s crazy about Makeup Revolution, but a few years ago MUA was the trendsetter for dupes. Let’s take a moment to remember all their wonderful eye shadow palettes and lipsticks! Without hesitation, I put this in my basket.
A while ago you could buy corrector palettes only from high-end brands and the most popular that comes to my mind is the one from Makeup Forever. But not everyone can justify spending their weekly lunch money on a beauty product. Especially if you`re like me and you really do your makeup only when you go out. A few dupes from Avon and NYX appeared soon after, but I think most of the people were confused about them. Now, after countless Youtube tutorials from beauty gurus, everything seems simpler.
In the kit, you`ll find 5 creamy shade, each with its specific purpose.
- Green – neutralises redness
- Lilac – illuminates and mutes yellow undertones
- Yellow – brightens and conceals purple tones
- Peach – adds radiance (also hides dark circles for darker skin tones)
- Beige/Salmon – highlights
The texture of these is really creamy and lightweight and blends in a couple of second. The kit does not come with an applicator, but I do think it`s best if you apply them with your fingers, so no need for that. I know everyone is a bit skeptical and afraid they`ll look like a painting by a 5-year-old, but once you blend them and apply your foundation you can`t see them anymore. I mean, you notice the results, but not the product itself.
I use the yellow and peach shades for my dark circles and they really made a difference. They were not drying at all and my concealer sat on top without caking or flaking. When my skin is really red I also use the green shade, but my skin is quite dry on my cheeks and sometimes too many products make it worse. I sometimes apply the beige-y colour on my brow bone, though to be honest I prefer using other highlighters. They only shade I have not tried is the lilac.
For 4£ this kit is an absolute bargain, so you should really give it a go. Even if you won`t like it, it`s a good kit for beginners, until you learn your way around correcting palettes. Have you tried this before? Is it something you`d like to get in the future?
