The Lipstick League – week of 5.16.16

Question of the Week: Do you use color correcting complexion products (like powders, primers or concealers)? If so, which ones do you use?

EauMG’s Answer: I use basic ‘ole concealer daily, mainly for under my eyes. I do own a few of those “color correcting” products in shades of green marketed to help with redness from Korean brands (i.e. The Face Shop, Nature Republic, Missha) and Shiseido. I don’t know if it is just me or my application technique, but I notice no positive difference from them. They just add another layer and look too thick and cake-y for my liking. Plus, they’re another step and I’m lazy. I have used Besamé Brightening Face Powder in Violet and really liked it. But, I think of that as more of a highlighter than a concealer. 

Olive & Ivy – Marc Jacobs Beauty is totally underrated. I have yet to find a product from them that I don’t LOVE! Here’s some of my fave releases from Marc Jacobs this season.
