Marc Jacobs Beauty Cover(t) Stick Colour Corrector
Marc Jacobs Beauty launched the cover(t) stick colour corrector back in June in Australia at Sephora exclusively. I got real excited being able to get a hold of these in-store because i noticed a few days later they were completely sold out and were only purchasable online.
Marc Jacobs Beauty cover(t) sticks colour corrector comes in 3 shades described as 'Demystify colour correction - targeting imperfections, conceal and create a balanced looking complexion. Velvety blurring pigments filter light for a soft - focus affect in 3 different marbleised shades'.
Cover(t) Affairs (300) - neutralising redness
Bright Now (310) - aims at neutralising discolouration and eliminating dullness
Getting Warmer (320) - for brightening effect for darker complextions
Initially i was umming-ahhing whether i wanted to get all 3 shades as they don't come cheap and i've never really used colour correctors in my makeup routine. I caved-in and went ahead and brought myself two out of the three shades that i thought i would get the most use out of. I decided to buy Marc Jacobs Beauty cover(t) stick colour corrector's in the shade; bright now and getting warmer.

First off i have to say that i'm really liking the packaging of these colour correctors 'tubes' - the design and size makes it so easy to use - whether its directly onto the skin, with fingers or brush. I'm not sure how everyone else are applying these colour corrector's but i figured that applying the product directly on the skin and blending with a brush was just as good as any way ..
Marc Jacobs Beauty cover(t) stick colour corrector products are quite creamy textured and blends outs sheer. Which i think is perfect for colour correcting products because anything thicker i think its gets abit hard to blend.
I went ahead and applied the product directly onto my skin and then just blend it with the Marc Jacobs Beauty #15 The Shape Contour and Blush Brush - brush recommended to use with Marc Jacobs Beauty colour corrector. The product is real easy to blend with the brush and feels amazing on the skin - feels like it was barely there and it smells amazing! (I feel like it might smell like a a particular Marc Jaocbs sent .. but i can't put my finger on it). Once its blended out i feel like its almost becomes primer-like because my eye concealer really stays in place and just makes the eye area brighter and makes all discolouration around the face look less noticeable throughout the day.
Overall i really like these Marc Jacobs Beauty colour corrector, since I've previously never been a big colour corrector user in my makeup routine i can say its converted me - i like how my overall make up looks when i need that bit of help - I definitely wouldn't any product thicker then these colour corrector because i generally go for the easy / barely there makeup look when i'm at work. I definitely think that Marc Jacobs have really got this all right from the packaging to the formula.
