Hi there! Here we are with Spring pastel colors – this time around the products are color correcting agents. It just so happens that with this season, a trend of color correcting products have been launching left and right suiting the Spring pastel theme perfectly. From a handful of choices I gravitated to the Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluids as I undeniably love UD cosmetics.
To brighten my under eyes I simply use a banana shade power right after I apply my foundation, before my foundation sets. Luckily, I do not suffer from heavy or dark circles – so I rarely use concealer for that area. When I feel extra fancy (or have the time) to apply concealer – I do so to make my eyes and cheek bones stand out. I decided to pick up all of the shades available.
Some info from the Sephora website:
- A collection of high-tech, color-correcting formulas that blur the look of imperfections
- Correct imperfections and play up your best features, all without having to lug around a whole contour kit
- Five color-neutralizing shades to target every skin concern
- Lightweight formula that instantly color-corrects and blurs flaws
- Leaves skin illuminated and bright
- Subtle pearlescent pigments diffuse light to perfect skin, while antioxidant-rich vitamins C and E condition and protect
- Unlike a lot of cream-based color correctors, this liquid formula is easy to use and always blends flawlessly for a smooth, even application
- Each tube retails for $28 for 0.16 oz

Having to play with these correctors really depends on what you’re looking to correct or compliment. I do not imagine using all of these all at one setting – only when correcting is needed. In short, I enjoy the peach shade as it does what it claims by brightening the targeted areas for my skin tone. I feel that these fluids dry quite quickly and it is important to prep the skin with a makeup mist for these products to blend well and unhurriedly.
Have you tried any of these products? Would love your input on how you used yours.
Much love, Gigi
