Sleek Colour Corrector Palette | Review

Wednesday, 15 February 2017



Colour correcting concealers are a real trend right now and like most beauty trends, I'm always intrigued to see what all the fuss is about. I had originally wanted to try the Colour Correcting Fluids from Urban Decay, but at £19 they're quite expensive for a product to trial that I barely know anything about. Therefore, when I spotted this Sleek Colour Corrector Palette in Boots for only £7.99 I couldn't resist! 

It's such a weird concept applying these bright colours to your skin and I really wouldn't have much clue on what colour to use on which part of my face. Fortunately, Sleek have you covered, on the back of the box, it lists all the colours, what colour they correct on your skin and what they're best at concealing. Whilst this is super handy and a real life saver, I wish they'd put it on the back of the actual palette as I know the box will get really tatty and marked after a while meaning it'll be hard to read or I'll end up losing it. 

What do all the colours do?
- Green: Neutralises redness - ideal for concealing scars and blemishes
- Lilac: Neutralises yellow - ideal for lightening sallow, dull complexions
- Blue - Neutralises orange - ideal for concealing freckles
- Rose: Adds radiance and brightens dark spots - adds radiance and evens dark spots
- Yellow: Neutralises purple - ideal for concealing under eye circles on light skin tones
- Orange: Neutralises blue - ideal for concealing dark circles on dark skin tones

So what do I think about the actual product? 
Well there's a few colours that are a bit redundant for me such as Orange, mainly because I have really fair skin, so that's the pro of buying individual colour correctors like the ones from Urban Decay I guess. Having said that I am really pleased with how they work. Once you get over the fact your rubbing a green substance into your face, they do actually correct the colour on your skin. I don't find them to be the most pigmented, so I do end up having to use quite a bit and I do wish the consistency was a little creamier to make them easier to blend, but at only £7.99 I can't complain. Admittedly, I haven't had a chance to try all of the colours yet because I haven't had a need for them, but so far I've mostly used Green and Yellow and have also tried Lilac and Blue and I am pleased with the results.

Finally, as with all Sleek products, the packaging is very simple and minimalist which I love. It's in a really convenient compact size which means it's easy to throw in your make up bag if you're going away or want to top up throughout the day. There's also a pretty decent mirror in the lid of the palette which is always handy to have.

Would I recommend this product? 
If you're beauty lover, yes. It's exciting, something different and at a reasonable price point. If you're not that fussed by beauty, then probably not because it's an added step to your make up routine and one that I don't think is entirely necessary. 

Have you tried any colour correctors? I'd love to know your thoughts.
