Sephora Bright Future Color Corrector Review & Swatches

Sephora Bright Future Color Corrector

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.

Sephora Bright Future Color Correctors are available now at Sephora and Sephora.com.

    I was not impressed with these or the concealers. I didn’t think the formula was great, its greasy and doesn’t have much coverage. But the applicator is HORRIBLE. The shape is the biggest problem with it, less the material.

    • Isabella Muse

      Ame, I wasn’t either. I think the formula (not on the corrector so much but the concealer) has potential but I think the applicator screws things up majorly in my opinion. I didn’t get the greasy factor at all, mine was thinner and creamy, but the problem is I can’t get enough out of the tube due to the applicator and than for me results in a sheer application plus it tends to crease a bit on me as it runs drier. I dunno, something weird here with the applicator I think! But yeah, not really a fan of either the concealer or the corrector.

    I have the concealer and really like it. It’s pigmented, smooth, and fairly hydrating. No problems with the applicator. I do store on its side, so maybe that makes it easier to get product out? IDK

    I like these concealers so I will give the green corrector a try, but the applicator (meant for dotting from the tip and not swiping from the sides) isn’t intuitive to me. It works, but I prefer to slather my face rather than dot it.

    • Yelena

      Weird thing is i didnt like the applicator at first but now i love it and it allows for perfect application each time once u get a hang of it 😉

  • Stina Baby21

    I avtually thoroughly enjoy both the concealer and corrector. But I do dab the product as that’s how its applicator is inteneded to be used. I know most favor the swipe-in-a-triangle method, but as someone with tear troughs, dotting and dabbing gives me the precision in placement that I need.

    I was checking these concealers and correctors out the other day… They kind of remind me of the Maybelline Age rewind concealers and correctors. Thin, light not super drying, interesting application method.
