The new Maybelline Master Camo Color Correcting Pen ($9.99) takes on an unconventional concealer and correcting method by launching in a red shade. You probably seen a slew of different youTube videos by now where gurus are color correcting dark circles using red lipstick. Yup, red lipstick! I honestly never tried it and I always thought it was a method best suited to darker skin tones but I’ve even skin fairer skinned girls and guys doing it. I’m still scared to try it 🙂
Now, color correcting is kind of a drugstore thing at the moment. Last year, we saw a variety of different higher and mid-range brands taking on color correcting full force. Well, it’s hit the drugstore world and brands like Hard Candy and now Maybelline are at it. What’s interesting about Maybelline Master Camo Color Correcting Pen is they have a few “unconventional” shades in their correcting line up that might be worth exploring such as apricot and red.
This is probably a collection of shades that I have yet to see. They have the standard shades like green, purple, and yellow but they also have a few that aren’t always addressed such as red, blue, and apricot.
Apparently, these provide full coverage correction with a creamy texture!
- Pink: brightens dullness (light skin tones)
- Red: neutralizes dark circle (deep skin tones)
- Apricot: neutralizes dark circles (light-to-medium skin tones)
- Yellow: brightens dullness (light-to-medium skin tones)
- Green: cancels out redness (all skin tones)
- Blue: neutralizes sallowness (fair to light skin tones)
