MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT  : It looks like a very light weighted creme –  gel in consistency ,  that gets easily absorbed into the skin. I can hardly smell anything, just nothing. I have been using this for a week now, and I see a significant change in my dark circle area. 

Truly speaking, the puffiness has been reduced , and the dark circles has decreased . Since I do not have any fine lines, it works well for my  eye area.

The cream stays hydrated on the eye area, even on my oily skin. and I am sure they should work on dry and normal skin as well. Not only that, though being an early riser at home, where my day starts at 4 am, and ends at 9.30 pm, the stress, sleep deprivation, tiredness , and exhaustion add a big plus to the dark circles. but with this creme, I see some visible results, however a complete 4 week update will be posted soon with before and after pictures.

Sometimes, even after removing my heavy waterproof eye makeup, I feel my dark circles are accentuated little more, but this creme keeps it at bay. 

HOW TO APPLY ? Gently apply a pearl sized amount around the entire eye area. Using light pressure ( with ring finger) pat around the entire orbital area. For best results, apply morning and night. 

TIPS FOR EFFECTIVE APPLICATION :

I always apply the gel eye mask , the one that is easily available at local stores. I apply the ones that you can use as COLD / HOT mask on your eyes to decrease the stress around the eye area. 

Once that is done, after a good 10 minutes, I apply this creme at night before going to bed. And the next day I wake up with a non puffy eye and I believe that with continuous use of this product, there will definitely be a significant decrease in my dark circles.

( Dark circles can also be heredity, in few cases, but mostly they can be cured effectively.)

These retails for $23, though pricey yet effective.

Just like highlighting and contouring are the techniques that are still in trend, so is the color correction. All these three skills are possessed by the makeup artists and make them the best performers ever. Thanks to a crazy explosion of color-correcting palettes, creams, crayons, stick from loads and loads of beauty brands, and today we are finally hitting the GOSH COSMETICS COLOR CORRECTING PALETTE 001.

Fear not, once we figure out, whether we need color correction, and then what type, its going to be real simple, and by that time you already know more than you think. 

What is color correction ? This theory uses the basic concept of colors to “correct” discoloration. Its like how a blue based red lipstick makes yellow teeth appear white?

Who needs color corrector ? Most of us needs a little flawless complexion. Though we love the results with the foundation and concealer, we still needs to be like a porcelain skin, with a super smooth finish and with even skin tone and of course our makeup to last longer.

How to apply color corrector?

  • Whether you apply colour corrector before or after concealer and foundation depends on the intensity of the discoloration you want to neutralize – and where it’s located. The under-eye area is easier to correct. If you need  correction, you can mix peach or orange with your concealer to adjust the tone.
  • For severely dark circles, lay down a light application of corrector, then apply concealer or foundation on top in a stippling or patting-with-fingertips motion.
  • Based on your imperfections, you can use the colors to your choice and have a flawless skin without any imperfections. 

How Expensive is this palette ? Its super affordable, priced at AED 85/-.

Available at Boots Pharmacy , Lifestyle gulf. 

Will I Repurchase ? Definitely Yes !!! I feel this is a better option to carry a palette than to have individual colors, and sometimes it can solve other purpose as well, who knows !

I hope this has helped to understand  this colour-correcting craze. Does everyone need to get on board? If your complexion looks great with a touch of concealer and some tinted moisturizer, not you. But if, no matter what you try, people keep asking whether you’re tired because your circles are showing, or you just can’t achieve a radiant complexion no matter what foundation you try, then yes, you want to spend some time in colour-correction class.
