Hey there- I’m sure that most of you are familiar with correctors in both powder and cream form, but for those who don’t know- correctors are typically products that are layered over unsightly changes in tone like redness, discolorations and under eye circles to even out your skin. Most often, you’d put these on after primer and before concealers, foundations and other bases.
When I was in my teens and early twenties, I never really used (or saw a need for) correctors, but as I’ve gotten older, these babies have really come in handy. I especially love trying out powder correctors because they seem to have a huge range of finishes and coverages.
I’ve gotten through this one most recently- Stila’s Set & Correct Baked Powder Trio. This tightly packed powder is shaved off the top by a grinder that you twist down onto the product. You basically grate the powder off the round cake as you twist and it pushes the powder (now in a loose form) through the holes on the top. I thought this packaging was a little gimmicky and weird at first. Pro- this made it easy to control how much powder I was using BUT con- I couldn’t CHOOSE which powder I wanted to use because they were all shaved down together.
The trio colors are stated as:
Peach – brightens and illuminates
Green – minimizes redness
Lavender – counteracts sallow undertones
By no means is this idea unique. Many lines carry versions of similar corrector powders including e.l.f, jane and Physician’s Formula. I haven’t used any of the other brands corrector powders, but I did really like this one. Stila Set & Correct powder was super light weight and very user friendly. With a nice fluffy brush, it’s the kind of thing you hardly need a mirror for. I loved throwing this on with sunscreen and lip balm on the days I wasn’t wearing any makeup just to help even out my skin tone. It was also great to use as a setting powder over full coverage, matte finish foundation.
I would recommend this product for people who are in to very natural looks, use only lightweight makeup or are new to the cosmetics scene.
