MAC’S pure orange “Studio Finish Skin Corrector” product review
Posted Date : 13-09-2012
This month I have being trying and testing many different products for under eye dark circles, some to get rid of completely some just to cosmetically remove. So this week I tried Macs, pure orange Studio Finish Skin Corrector. Yes I know Orange! What on earth is that all about I hear you guys asking well yes I thought the same when I remembered in our professional Photographic Makeup training course, which was years ago, we were trained about how certain colours highlight, shade and neutralise imperfections on your skin and orange quite rightly was a neutraliser for dark shadows.
Ok so why is it orange? The orange colour neutralizes any bluish/greenish/blackish colors on your skin & balances it, leaving it looking fresh and youthful. Whereas beige concealers can sometimes make the are appear greenish or greyish, which is why on dark circles or pigmentation once you apply a orange concealer it would neterlise the darkness and not appear to leave a greyish colour
Studio Finish Skin Corrector pure orange
Strong orange colour
Blend under the eyes with your fingers on clear moisturised skin
Not a very flattering look do not leave the house with this on alone. lol
Blend your normal concealer or foundation over the top to cover up the orange colour and continue on with normal makeup
Product Review:- Mac Studio Finish Skin Corrector Pure Orange
- Packaging: .021 oz in a small propan (same size as eyeshadow) with magnetic back.
- Price: £14.50 onhttp://www.maccosmetics.co.uk. Note: You have to be a MACpro memeber to order online, but this can be purchased by anyone at Pro stores or by telephone.
- Color Payoff: The is a strong orange colour, need to apply small amount and it lightens dark circles or pigmentation.
- Verdict: You can only use this product under a concealer. When first applied, the results were amazing my dark under eye circles were gone using this application method and I was thrilled. However, I am not sure I would make that much effort on a daily basis, as you need time to apply another product in your daily makeup routine. However if your getting married, special occasion, photo shoot or need to look great for a special meeting its worth making the effort, but do test it out first.
