MY TAKE ON MAYBELLINE FACE STUDIO MASTER CAMO COLOR CORRECTING PENS
Packaging: The color correcting pens work just like the Maybelline instant age rewind concealer, the only difference is these are color coded and in a thin pen form. Also, the applicator sponge has a pointed end that can be used to apply the concealer to desired areas and in the nicks and corners.
Texture: The concealer is very creamy, applies smoothly and dries quickly so you need to blend it asap! It settles into a comfortable matte finish.
Shade: I got the 4 most used shades and below is a summary on each-
Green- Green is used to correct the redness on skin- red spots or inflamed acne.
Yellow- This is used to brighten dull skin around the eyes, in the corners of the nose, upper lip and around the lip. This works for medium skin tone or any skin tone that has yellow undertones.
Red- This is used to correct the pigmentation marks and under eye dark circles. This claims to work for deep skin tones but worked for my medium skin tone too.
Pink- This is used to brighten dull skin around the eyes, in the corners of the nose, upper lip and around the lip. This works for fair skin tone or any skin tone that has pink undertones.
How I use and staying power: Color correcting pens are supposed to be used before using a regular concealer or foundation. To use, simply twist the pen and apply the product on the desired area and blend using the sponge tip.
Upon first use, you might need to twist the bottom of the pen 10-15 times or until the product is visible on the sponge. I have never used any correcting pens or color correcting products, rather I never felt I need one but after using these I could definitely see a big difference with how flawless the finished makeup looks! I am highly impressed with the red and yellow shade that hides my dark circles and also brightens it up! I also use the yellow shade along with my highlighting concealer for an added effect. The color correcting pens are definitely very pigmented so you need to first try and see how much product do you actually need making sure it doesn’t peep through your foundation or concealer. A very light layer of this products works for me. Also, make sure the concealer or foundation you use on top is medium to high coverage or it might simply show the corrector shades making your makeup look dull/funny. The product definitely works amazing in hiding/correcting all the skin imperfections and also does not crease or make skin oily. I give this a big thumbs up!
