Before and After (using all products)
These come in light plastic containers that I will admit, feel and look cheap. When I was taking photos of these little guys, I had no idea how to arrange them to make them look a little more like the high-end products they are. They come in duos – the Boing shades paired with a Lemon aid primer, and the Erase Paste paired with the Eye bright. They snap shut and feel secure once closed.
Product (from the stiffest to the creamiest):
- Eye bright
-Counteracts dull yellow tones – great for brightening
-Pretty dry texture for a cream and needs some rubbing to pick up product
-Dries down matte
Eye Bright used on the brow bone, the inner and outer corners of my eye.
- Lemon aid
-Counteracts blue and purple veins that may be on the eyelids
-Cream texture on the stiff side
-Created a very smooth-looking canvas that looked great under eyeshadow!
-Improves pigmentation of eyeshadow.
Lemon aid used on the eyelid.
-Comes in two shades 01, and 02
-Skin tone shades
-Creamy when freshly applied and dries down slightly after a few minutes
-Will crease if setting powder is not used
Before and After of Boi-ing used on my acne scars.
- Erase Paste
-Salmon/peach coloured corrector
-Counteracts blue/yellow/green dark circles and veins underneath the eye
-This does not dry down, will need to set it.
Erase Paste used underneath my eyes.
They all lasted for the majority of the day except for Eye Bright, which was placed in the corner of my eyes and the brow bone. The shorter longevity may be because I tend to rub my eyes a lot.
I just dab the product on places that need correcting with my fingers.
I would not recommend using a brush for such a dense creamy product such as this one. I tried using the Real Techniques Accent brush (very small, flat detailer brush) and I noticed the brush started clumping up and becoming increasingly stiff because the product was getting stuck between the bristles.
I’m very happy with these. I can’t wait to get some more use out of them. Compared to other colour correctors on the market, these are much more affordable. If you don’t mind the simple packaging, I think you’ll love this! This kit is missing a green corrector that is popularly used to correct redness (ie. pimples). But for those who are using it for casual everyday use and don’t need a green, this is perfect.
