Being a huge fan of Max Factor for most of my makeup wearing years, I thought it was only right that I test out these new colour correcting pens and see if they’re really worth the hype that everyone seems to be on. There are not many of Max Factors products that disappoint me or that I don’t like in their entire collection, which makes me love Max Factor even more. When I first saw the Colour Correcting Sticks I didn’t think too much too them, but when I saw them for the sixth time I started to wonder if they really are as good as everyone was saying. The next time I was in my local boots, it happened to be 3 for 2 and only 3 of the Colour Correction Sticks were in. Obviously I took that as fate and immediately snapped up one of each colours left, Purple for Dullness, Pink for Dark Spots and the Champagne Highlighter.
Colour Correcting is basically changing any pigmentation in your skin by balancing it out or neutralising it, you can hide things like redness, blemishes and even under eye circles. The Colour Correction Sticks from Max Factor are ridiculously creamy and easy to apply, they also blend like a dream making them virtually undetectable. Even on my oily skin I didn’t find them to be too heavy, but they’re definitely more suited for dry skin. I don’t particularly suffer from dark spots or dullness in my skin for these specific pens, and I would much better suit the green and yellow which were out of stock and still are. They must have been very popular! But I definitely noticed an instant brightness to wherever I applied the purple and pink. They’re perfect for under the eyes when you haven’t had as much sleep as you’d like. For the quality of the pens and the sleek a packaging I definitely think they’re worth the £9.99 price tag, which isn’t common for me to say. The only one which didn’t impress me was the Champagne Highlighter. I found it to be nonexistent and disappointing. The texture wasn’t the creamiest and on my pale skin it really didn’t show up. I imagine it to be a lot more noticeable and beautiful on darker skin and I’m waiting to try it out to see.
Max Factor have continued to impress and I cannot wait to get my hands on the green and yellow correctors, which are amazing for covering redness and cancelling out under eye darkness. They’ll definitely be on my shopping list next month! Have you tried out Max Factor’s Colour Correcting pens yet? What did you think?
