Sephora Bright Future Color Correctors ($14) are a new Spring 2016 release of color corrector gel-serums that can be used to address redness, darkness, etc….those who enjoyed Sephora Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer will likely love these.
Let’s take a look!
Sephora Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer are available in five shade selections and have a gel-serum formula much like the Bright Future Serum Concealer released prior. Apparently the formula also contains pineapple ceramide that helps to improve the appearance of skin texture and brightness. Much like the new Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Concealer you can use these correctors in conjunction with either Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer or a concealer of your choice. Main difference? Price! Make Up For Ever Concealers and Correctors will set you back over $50 both two shades where as Sephora’s version is merely $14 per a shade. Not that these are a dupe of that formula AT ALL but just a comparison to MUFE’s crazy pricing.
As I mentioned these are available in five shades which I’ve listed below:
- Green (neutralizes redness)
- Yellow (combats dullness)
- Pink (promotes brightness)
- Peach (promotes brightness and evens skintone for light complexions)
- Melon (promotes brightness and evens skintone for medium complexions)
My under eyes are puffy, finely lined, and drier. I don’t think I have super dark circles so I don’t use a corrector under my eyes. My eyes are drier and finely lined doubling up on both concealer and corrector creates a rather big mess and I look terribly overdone. I’m of the mentality very few people are going to need a corrector for under eye used as your concealer should be pigmented enough to concealer many issues.
However, these aren’t just for under eye used! You can use them anywhere on your face to brighten up your complexion or to conceal redness, etc….!
One of the things I disliked about the concealer and that I also dislike about the corrector is the applicator. The applicator is a dense slightly scratchy sponge that doesn’t saturate well with color and I find it makes application kinda dry and sheer. I only tried one corrector shade which was Melon and the applicator made application very sheer. It feels very creamy but not as hydrating as I would hope for. The formula does seem to set fast so there’s very little time to play here. This is a thin yet creamy consistency but it does blend out quite sheer so you need to build quite a bit to get the best color pay off. I also felt the shade I tried, Melon, didn’t really add any brightness under my eyes or on my face! If anything the color seemed to add a little dullness versus brighten anything up. Like the concealer it does tend to crease into finer lines.
I think like the concealer many of the problems here stem from the applicator. But I also think the pigment isn’t enough to offer major color correcting abilities. If you’re looking for light correction the Sephora Bright Future Color Corrector might do the trick but if you’re looking for something that will corrector major redness or even darker circles I don’t this formula is pigmented enough.
