Review: BH Cosmetics 6 Color Concealer & Corrector Palette

I recently hauled this, I was intrigued because I've never dabbled into color correcting for concealing. Conveniently my skin has been throwing a temper tantrum lately so I had plenty of redness to experiment with covering up. This palette I picked up is the BH COsmetics 6 Color Concealer & Corrector Palette for $6, it comes in three shades, Light, Medium and Dark, and I picked up the Medium palette. Each one comes with six different color, three concealer shades (light, medium, dark) and three color correcting the shades. I find that the middle concealer shade is my perfect skin match (keep in mind that my arm is much tanner than my face is), the lightest color is great under my eyes and in that nose crease, so I can imagine the darkest shade will be great in summer (you can already tell by how it fades away on my much tanner arm). The color correcting shades come in a salmon which neutralizes blue-green (think dark under eye), yellow which neutralizes blue-violet (under eyes again and veins), and green with neutralizes red (redness and acne).

I do notice a difference in consistency between the two rows. The top row of concealers are super creamy and blend-able and take longer to set and dry on your skin. However the color corrector shades are dryer, a little chalky, that I find they apply best when I just pat on the color and they are practically instantaneously dry. This does make it easier to apply the concealer on top of the color without having to wait a long time for it to dry first. This palette is definitely build-able and for the price is an excellent option for concealing all over your face. I found that the colors do not oxidize into darker orange-y shades on your face like some concealers tend to do, the color stays true throughout the day so you don't need to worry about your concealer throwing you under the bus at some point. 

This did an excellent job wearing all day even on my oily/combo skin however it is important to set it with a powder to ensure that stay all day coverage. This concealer is not like others where you can buff the powder over a still creamy spot because the powder will cling to it and leave you with a cakey finish. I suggest giving it at least a full five minutes or really blending it into your skin before pressing the powder on. Prepare for the packaging to get messy too, once of those colors leaves the pan it will smear all over the packaging and be very difficult to remove. I also wish it came with a mirror which would be handy for the on the go touch-ups, but $6 for six solid colors is a steal and I'm not complaining too much.

Have you tried out this product before? What are your thoughts on color correcting?
