I have been working so hard testing out products that I think are worth sharing some thoughts on. When all of a sudden pre spring, really 6 months ago color correction became a thing. There were these skillfully placed color corrections placed on women’s faces in the form of fairy trees or other dream like imagery. Any how it was amazing to see. After those videos were forgotten, I was thinking to myself, maybe its time to seriously commit to make up. Start replenishing my old professional stash, that had run its course. I thought well everyone has forgotten about color correction I’ll start there. All of a sudden color correction pallets became the next have to have item. 2 seasoned YouTube vloggers featured cc pallets. I have tested 2 major brand pallets. And have a third waiting to be used. This post features the pallet Loreal Infallible Total Cover Correction Kit .I feel this is the drug store pallet worth using on a personal make up bag level.
Beauties you know my review style: packaging, and performance. But today I’m going to add in tips on how to use this pallet. So onward to the juicy details.
The Loreal Infallible Total Cover Correction Kit has 4 cc concealers and an application sponge all in a shiny black, plastic case. I don’t like to talk price when it comes to my reviews, because it’s about an encompassing check list for me… any how, this pallet is 13 dollars. And that plastic package, ain’t nothing fancy! Bonus though FYI there are 3 dollar off coupons on the pallet for now. That price is the most awful part of this pallet. The cc concealer shades you get are: green, yellow, purple, and orange.
Deep diving into my thoughts on performance, here we go! The big shocker is, I really feel this pallet is meant for light tones of skin. The shades of consealer are very light pastel. While these cc consealer shades and undertones are prefect for my fair tones. I did my friends make up, and she is a very deep coastal South Indian skin tone. Instead of the orange adding a warm deep color to even out her discoloration. The orange shade seemed to merely neutralize to ash the discoloration.I ended up layering cc shades of yellow and orange, and had extreme brightening effects. Bottom line, undertones are so important. Seriously we could have skipped it. If I was desperate we could layer one basic color, but since I am testing a third pallet, I would test the depth of colors ,vs repeating the mediocre result on dark skin. I do feel light tan and light olive tones could also use this pallet.
Tip 1: Green will cancel out redness. Rather than dotting on each blemish, if you have clusters of pimples cover the whole patch and gently blend outer edges of cc concealer.
Tip 2: Yellow is Amazing awesome brighter for Tan skin tones.
Tip 3: Lavender may help neutralize yellow foundations. This tip would be especially helpful to very fair tones.
Tip 4: use orange cc on dark eye circles or to correct dark hyper-pigmention.
In conclusion I am very happy with this pallet. The formula is creamy,provides great coverage, and is so easy to blend. I’m a little embarrassed but I live the tiny thin sponge, but it probably is cheap. I think is a splurge, but worth it with a coupon. However if you have deep ethnic tones darker than tan, I’d steer clear. Other wise this pallet gets 2 thumbs up for quality.
