I never replaced the last colour correction palette I had when it ran out as I find that my foundation usually provides enough coverage. I decided to pick this up after my skin broke out due to sun cream. I can’t seem to find one that doesn’t cause this; if you have any recommendations please let me know. Anyway I felt that I needed a little extra coverage and I decided to try out Sleek’s Colour Corrector Palette.
Colour correcting palettes work by using different shades to conceal particular problems. If you can remember back to school, then there is a chance that you looked at the colour wheel. Colours opposite each other in the wheel cancel each other out, so for example green covers red. Using colour correction helps to create an even base for your foundation so it looks more flawless when applied.
Here’s a run-down of what each colour in the Sleek MakeUp palette helps with;
Green – Neutralises redness great for covering scars and blemishes
Lilac –Neutralises yellow ideal for brightening sallow, dull complexions
Blue – Neutralises orange helping to concealing freckles
Rose – Helps to add radiance
Yellow – Neutralises purple making it great for covering under-eye circles on light skin tones
Orange – Neutralises blue making it perfect to conceal under-eye circles on darker skin tones
The palette like other Sleek products comes housed in matte black packaging and features a large mirror on the inside. I find that the casing is sturdy enough that you can throw it in your bag and don’t have to worry about it opening.
The product itself is lovely and creamy and applies really well with fingers or a concealer brush. I was worried that the creaminess of the product might have resulted in it clinging to dry patches but I’m glad to say it just glides over them. I like to blend any areas I’ve covered using a beauty blender before applying my foundation. I find that the product easily sinks into skin and conceals very well.
