Benefit Perk-Up Artist Custom Complexion Correcting Palette
Correct is a light yellow concealer, good for counteracting redness and discoloration
Cover is a medium peach concealer, good for hiding dark circles and blemishes
Brighten is a light creamy pink concealer, good for adding brightness without adding shimmer
What I liked:
- The palette itself is small and compact, comes with a mirror and a very good brush, and has lids that snap over each compartment. Excellent design.
- The concealer formulas are smooth, creamy, and blend into skin flawlessly.
- The pink really is great for brightening around the eye area.
- The yellow makes a good eyeshadow base in a pinch.
- My skintone is somewhat fair and the peach Cover concealer is sometimes visible if I haven't blended enough. However, blending too much decreases coverage.
- The texture of the concealers stays a little creamy/sticky and must be set with powder.
- Not ideal for heavy-duty concealing due to semi-sheer, creamy formula. Best for slight color correction (brightening in corners of eyes, around nose and mouth, adjusting dark circles, lessening the look of small scars or hyperpigmentation).
- The palette is rather small and each product is only 0.05 oz, so $30 seems a little steep. A full-sized Erase Paste is $26 and better for heavy-duty concealing, a full-sized Eye Bright pencil is $20.
And I was also thinking... that goofy "Perk-Up Artist" on the front of the palette kinda reminds me of someone else.
Benefit's Perk-Up Artist palette is $30 and is not limited edition.
