The Color Corrective Trend Continues…

I feel like there is a literal ONSLAUGHT of these products (not to mention posts, articles, newsletters etc…)  I’m not exactly complaining – I learned how to utilize such “correctors” early on as a performing athlete, and they WORK – but it is somewhat a sensory overload situation at this point!

In any case, if you are interested in further expanding your arsenal of perfectors, Sephora has a brilliant selection of items to choose from!  

Algenist has a new, concentrated liquid dropper formulation, which you can score a deluxe sample of at the moment…  (Dropper bottle foundations and serums are also (as no doubt you are aware) a major 2015 tail-end trend.)

Becca has four shades which appear more pigmented, and therefore much like the Kryolan or Ben Nye wheels I’d buy at Ricky’s New York back in my competitive dancing days…

Marc Jacobs has three swirled pop-up sticks, a fun take on the trend that I haven’t seen quite the likes of elsewhere.

Sephora has launched seven gel-serum correctors in a lip gloss style format, as has Urban Decay (who has five shades.)

YSL’s infamous Touch Eclat ALSO now comes in three corrective hues, which I have to say is pretty fabulous (the original is divine.)  

Smashbox is offering a pencil in four color-fixing shades, which is great for easy application.  In line with uber-ease, Cover-FX has their own new stick for brightening (LOVE brightening!), thought it does also come in five other colors! 

For those in love with powders, I adore the cute, loose pots from Besame, who have expanded one shade into five lovely tints…  Now if palettes are more your speed – having multiple colors in one place is often incredibly useful! – you might like Make Up Forever’s (which comes in five combinations), or the cheeky six-sampling from Benefit.

It’s rather a lot but I guess better to be able to choose from a larger variety depending on your own skin correcting needs!

Beauty Fail – Circle Glitter

So…

I came across this and, funny it may be, there are people who might give it a whirl (don’t look at me, I’m not one of them!  I did, however, see photos online of several ladies sporting the…er…idea.)

Unless you plan to hit up a disco, or you happen to be an ultra famous pop star…I’m going to go ahead and say skip it!

A good eye cream and corrective concealer can make a world of difference…without the bombardment of finger-pointing or camera snapping!

 

Bairly There

Sprays are nothing new in the cosmetic arena, but they aren’t exactly easy to find in mass market stores.  Sally Hansen, of course, has her line (and at one point had the Carmindy line you may have seen some years ago.)

But aside from the likes of ERA (incredibly novel when it came out around 2001), Dior, Sephora...it’s just not been easy to find a spray-on product, whether foundation, primer, blush…what have you.  I have an airbrushed – wicked fun, amazing result, but pricey and high maintenance.  I therefore LOVE sprays, which I used often when competing in Ballroom.

Enter “Bairly Sheer,” a new brand at Ulta.  The company offers a selection of waterproof products (which I always get excited about, being a highly active individual…and NOT a heat person!), as well as a brush, blender, and setting powder.  

For me, ease of use is huge…and it doesn’t get a lot easier than sprays.  The sprays retail for $12.99, which isn’t a deal breaker at all…but, I think a lot of people may want more than one item!
