I love color corrector concealers. They are very useful to mask any skin imperfections like redness, dark circles, hyperpigmentation and sallowness. So, when I had the chance to try some color correctors from Lumiere, I was very excited.
I received four of the five color correctors available (the one I don’t have is lavender, which neutralizes sallowness). They are all quite finely milled, easy to blend and provide sheer to medium coverage, which, in most cases, is enough to cover imperfections.
They stay put for most of the day but you can prolong their staying power by using a primer underneath. Like most mineral concealers, these are very messy, so be careful when you use them or the powder will fly everywhere!
A green concealer is a must for me because I have redness on my cheeks and the Mint Green corrector manages to hide it completely. It’s also good at neutralizing the redness from pimples. A little goes a long way with this, so the jar will last you for a long time. The only downside would be that it gives my face an ashen cast, but I apply mineral foundation on top, so that’s not a problem for me.
The Sunflower corrector is my favourite of the bunch. Not only a light dusting of the powder neutralizes facial redness, but it also acts as a highlighter, brightening up the complexion. But you need to blend it very carefully or it may look a bit unnatural on pale skin.
The Salmon Corrector is recommended to conceal dark circles. I have really horrible, very dark circles under my eyes and this concealer didn’t hide them completely. I wasn’t too disappointed as I didn’t expect it too, very few concealers can actually do that since my dark circles are really bad. But it reduced their appearance and once I applied foundation, they weren’t very noticeable anymore. But if you don’t have very dark circles, I think this will cover them totally.
The Blue corrector is supposed to cover orange and is very useful when you overdo the self-tanner. I admit I didn’t have a clue how to use this since I never use self-tanners. They just make you look fake and I love my pale skin anyway. My boyfriend, instead, loves spending time at the beach during summer and, as a result, his skin becomes orangey. So, I decided to test this on him (he wasn’t very happy about it). The blue concealer did what it promised: it neutralized the orange pretty well and his skin took up a fairly natural, healthy shade. But you need to be careful not to apply too much and blend well or it may look a bit cakey and give your skin an ashen cast.
The concealers are available in XX large jars (12gm, $12.00 each), sample jars (1/4 tsp, $2.50 each) and sample baggie ($1.00 each) on Lumierecosmetics.com.
Overall, I like these color corrects very much. Mint Green and Sunflower are both great at concealing redness, but Sunflower acts as a highlighter too. Salmon reduces the appearance of under-eye circles, hiding them completely if they’re not too dark. Blue is very useful for when you overdo the self-tanner as it will get rid of the orange tones in your skin. They all are easy to blend but can be very messy too!
