NYX Color Correcting Concealer Palette – A Review

I love the NYX Color Correcting Concealer palette.  The NYX palette colors are creamy, they blend out with ease, and work well at concealing what they are supposed to conceal. I normally use the e.l.f Flawless Finish foundation, which is a medium coverage foundation, and the color correcting concealers blend very well.  Screen Shot 2017-01-23 at 7.49.55 PM.png
I’ve been using color correcting concealers for a long time, and this palette is my favorite. I picked it up at Target for $12.00. There are cheaper palettes out there that do the same darned thing, but I’m a little picky with the brands I allow to go under my eyes, so I styx with nyx. See what I did there?
I do have the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye, but that does NOT work for me. It’s wet and thick and creases and looks like poo poo. Also, it’s mega expensive. Another also, I have wrinkles under my eyes and CANNOT set my concealer with powder.  I was told that Bye Bye Undereye does not need to be set with a powder and that is a Bye Bye Undereye LIE. It’s very tacky feeling on my skin. If it works for you, yay.
The color correcting colors I use the most are the green, peachy/pinky/salmony, and yellow colors.
The green covers any redness. I use this on zits and the lame red dry skin patches scattered across my face.
I use a little of the peachy/pinky/salmony to combat the blue/purple bags under my eyes.
The yellow works to hide the shadow of my undereye bags. I just lightly trace a line along the bags under my eyes.
Once my face looks like a rainbow, I blend in all the concealer colors with my foundation, and apply the rest of my makeup.
If you wear makeup, you should own a color correcting palette, unless you have flawless skin, and if you do, you suck.
