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!

Givenchy Tient Couture

Givenchy has a new addition for summer 2015 – Teint Couture “Embellishing” Concealer.  Why embellishing?  I’m not entirely sure…but perhaps it’s in that the product is “a dual-toned, silky concealer that hides imperfections and illuminates”?

Whatever the reason, the concealer sounds pretty darn amazing – it’s priced at $35, which in my own mind is kind of hefty, but if it lives up to it’s claims, it could be like a Touch Éclat type situation.

“One side features a universal pink, light-reflecting stripe that instantly brightens up dark circles, smoothing away the look lines and signs of fatigue, and the other, darker side color corrects and erases imperfections. Formulated with bi-colored pigments to conceal and highlight the skin around the eyes, this concealer brightens up the complexion.”

Sephora isn’t showing any reviews as yet, and I haven’t seen others online.  I am sure, however, that they will be cropping up shortly!
