Color correcting is something new to me. I was using brightening concealers on my under-eye area for quite a while now. It was working for me but my inner corners seemed “darker” than the rest of my face regardless. I have always wanted to try out products that would counteract blue under my eyes and in the inner corners.
DISCLAIMER: If you are experiencing problems with certain areas and feel like you do need some color correction – use products with the OPPOSITE shade to your ‘problem’ areas! In my case it’s blue – so I needed orange / peach product, if it’s red – green based products etc.
Referring to the color wheel is the easiest way to make the right choice!
NYX COSMETICS Dark Circle Concealer comes in a convenient pot with 0.1 oz. / 2.9 g of product. A little goes a very very long way. It retails for $6.00 and believe me it will serve you a long time ♥ I’ve been using mine every single time I wear makeup and it’s still almost full!
I find the best way to apply it is using your finger in patting motions, since your fingers have natural warmth to them which helps to deposit product in the desired spot and ‘lock’ it in there!
I am quite sure you are not going to regret buying it! So I highly recommend you trying it out if color correcting is what you’re looking for right now. My dark circles were gone in no time! Watch me using it in my latest VIDEO
It is affordable, it does work and it will last you a good amount of time!
Today we are going to be reviewing the NYX Dewy Finish Setting Spray.
In the sea of over hyped & primarily high end setting sprays and finishing mists, it is hard not to be excited about affordable dupes #YAY!!! Drugstore has been seriously stepping it up! More and more drugstore brands are coming out with affordable alternatives. The question is, if the ‘alternatives’ are really such?!
NYX is one of my favorite drugstore brands, so I decided to give a go to its new setting spray.
The one I got for myself is the ‘dewy finish’ one which is perfect for winter since my skin does tend to get dry. However, there’s also a ‘matte’ one, if that’s the type of finish you desire ♥
PRICE! The first advantage of this product is that it is quite affordable (I got mine at CVS for $9.00), especially in comparison with high end ones (over $30.00 on average). You get 2.03 fl. oz / 60 ml, which is not a crazy big amount but considering that, for instance, I personally think that settings sprays is something for a special occasion in order to make your makeup last longer than usual (and that’s how I plan to use it) – the amount of the product is quite decent!
FINISH! NYX Setting Spray gives an absolutely beautiful dewy finish that lasts all throughout the day. This is definitely one of the main reasons I fell in love with this product! Nothing has ever made my skin that glowy and healthy looking 🙂
LONGEVITY! The spray lasts literally all day, there’s no need to reapply it. Which also means that you’re using a very little amount of product at once (thanks to its awesome delivery system, btw) and it will last you a very long time!
SCENT! It literally smells like a subtle version of hair spray, which is not the best scent, especially when you spray it on your face. To be fair, the smell does go away in a very little while, so I personally can handle that!
