Green Color-Corrector to Hide Pimples

Hey guys!

There has been a lot of talk about color-correcting nowadays. I’ve been correcting my dark circles for a while. Sometimes I use red lipstick, which you can read about here. Other times, I use products specifically made for color-correcting. I’m still new to the other colors, besides peach and salmon. I wanted a palette where I could experiment without spending too much money and the NYX Color-Correcting Concealer palette has it all. Today, all I’m going to focus on is the green corrector.

All I do is apply moisturizer and primer before I apply the corrector. I use my finger to dab the green onto the red areas of my face. Around my nose and cheeks are wear I apply it normally. Then, I apply dots to my pimples. It doesn’t completely fade them, but it tones the color down after you apply foundation or CC creams.

I did apply the salmon color of the palette on my dark circles, as well.

It does make quite a difference! In this particular palette, the green color is a good beginner color. The texture is quite creamy and blends easier. I want to look for something thicker, because I find this one sheer. It does work, but I want to see if a more pigmented one will help my skin look even better.

I hope this helped any of you who want to try color-correcting! Feel free to leave any questions or comments!

Thank you so much for reading!

      I have a medium-olive complexion and the green works for me. It’s very build-able, so it should be fine. If you’re looking to color correct your dark circles, I would recommend another corrector, such as NYX’s Dark Circle Concealer Corrector, which is available in different shades. I haven’t tried out the other colors of this palette, besides the green and salmon, so other than those two I’m not sure. I like this because it’s inexpensive and beginners can experiment with different colors. But if you already know what you want to specifically correct, (dark circles, dullness, redness, sallowness), it might be more beneficial to find a product made specifically for that. I hope that helped! πŸ™‚

      As soon as I saw it, I needed it in my life haha. It was really inexpensive, about $12 at Ulta, for six colors. Not too bad. Stila has one too, the Correct & Perfect palette, for around $45. I thought I would try this one out first. Thanks for reading girl! πŸ™‚
