Hello folks! I know colour correcting is a bit of a ‘been there, done that’, but there is a launch from Essence that I think is worth looking at. I’ve tried a couple of colour correctors here are there and they’ve always been pretty good. The only issue is that for something I don’t use all the time, I don’t want to spend a huge amount of money on it. I think the Essence Colour Correcting Sticks have that point covered!
There are five colours in the Essence Colour Correcting Stick collection, each targeting a specific concern. There is yellow (dark circles), nude (dark spots), green (redness), purple (tiredness), and peach (dullness).
As you can see from the swatches, these pack a punch. Also, it’s hard to tell from a swatch, but these sticks are super creamy. They don’t tug at all and distribute the product evenly. The stick-format also makes it easy to use and blending is a breeze. I end up using my fingers to distribute, and the warmth from my fingers makes it easy. I notice that these can somewhat sink into pores right at application, but after blending, they are totally fine.
I was able to make use out of all of them other than really the purple one. Not sure if I used it correctly, but meh. The ones I could see myself using on the regular are the Yellow (dark circles) and Green (redness). My dark circles are out of this world and there is a lot of redness on my face in general
Another thing I really like about these colour correctors is the price. They retail for $5.99 which is a pretty solid drugstore price. I feel like I complain about this at every chance I get, but I find the drugstore getting so out of hand. The prices just seem crazy. Essence is one brand that stays affordable and I can definitely commend them for it.
So if you want some easy colour correcting products to add to your routine, I would recommend the Essence Colour Correcting Sticks! In Canada, you can find these at Shoppers Drug Mart!
Thanks so much for reading! Have a great day!
