Hi dolls! I’m super excited to bring you another review, it feels like forever since I reviewed the Iconic London Day to Slay Palette (which I’m still obsessed with btw)! This time we’re colour correcting with the Make up Revolution Ultra Base Corrector Palette.
I’ve always struggled with breakouts but even when my skin’s clear, it still has such an uneven tone. With the obsession with contouring continuing, it was only a matter of time before colour correcting palettes became a thing. I first started playing with colour correcting when I was sick of the red patches around my nose and cheeks. I started out using the L’Oreal Nude Magique CC Cream for Anti-Redness and was really happy with the results, but redness wasn’t my only issue and soon I needed something more.
Enter the Make Up Revolution Ultra Base Corrector Palette. With a shade to neutralise or brighten each problem area on your face, it’s the best and most affordable colour correcting palette I’ve come across. There’s eight different shades in the palette, each with their own job to do:
Pink – brightens
Lavender – neutralises yellow tones
Green – neutralises redness
Orange – neutralises blue tones
Peach – helps to balance out slight discolouration
White – adds natural highlight and brightens
Cream – neutralises purple & covers dark areas
Brown – balances ashiness in medium to dark skin tones
I must admit, initially I was a bit overwhelmed with the choice of colours. Going from a single CC Cream to a full palette of creams, I didn’t know where to start! But with a little help from YouTube tutorials and a drop of common sense, it’s easy to get your head around this palette and use it to its full potential.
The shades are so creamy making them blend really well, something I think some other Make Up Revolution products can lack. They’re also a great size for applying with a small brush or beauty blender (although I prefer to use my finger!) and a little goes a long way! With a decent primer (I use NYX HD Primer Base), these shades sit so well underneath foundation and cream contour, with no need to worry about them wearing off. I don’t tend to use all the shades in one go as my skin tone changes from day to day but my most used colours are definitely green (around my nose and cheek area), lavender (around my eye area), orange (for my lids), cream (under my eyes) and white to add some radiance.
This exact palette is a bit difficult to find these days it seems as Make Up Revolution have revamped the packaging to their camouflage range. I’ve included links to the palette and some other similar products below in case you’re interested in buying.
