Hope everyone had a good long weekend. I’m here in Vancouver on vacation and making the most of every single minute! Although vacation is supposed to be very relaxing, all I have been doing is going on beautiful hikes on the most wonderful valleys of Vancouver. I am having a great time hiking but long hours of hikes can get you feeling so tired. But for vacation pictures to turn out great, I need to always look fresh and alive. This, my friends, is when I thank my lucky stars that concealer exists! For years, concealers have been the saving grace for people struggling to hide problem areas. Thanks to concealer, we’re able to hide everything from zits and dark circles, as well as highlight cheekbones and eyes.
Colour correctors are available in green, pink, purple, yellow, white and orange concealers. I have been using orange colour correctors for the longest time now and love it for the simple fact that every skin tone needs a concealer that works for you. So when Vasanti Cosmetics sent over their Liquid V02 Colour Correcting concealer in orange, I had to see how it works on my under eyes.
While there are so many orange colour correctors, most of them are too orange on my skin tone. Vasanti Cosmetics Liquid V02 is a full cover concealer that I have been using for a week or more now and even carried it for my Vancouver trip. After using it for awhile, here’s my take on it. At the end of the post, I’m also sharing 5 reasons why you should try an orange colour corrector.
Vasanti Cosmetics Liquid V02 Colour correcting concealer comes with a buff concealer brush that is easy to blend with. So what is a colour corrector and how to use a colour corrector?
A colour corrector is designed to counteract and cancel out any discolouration caused by skin imperfections. The concept is derived from a colour wheel: Brown is the shade seen on most people around the eye area, which is made up of blue, yellow and purple hues. Orange cancels out brown because it sits across purple and blue on the colour wheel. Whether you have a red or yellow undertone, dark under eyes are usually caused by purple or blue hues which means orange is the universal colour that cancels out and brightens the dark shadows we all dread!
Applying your colour corrector in a ‘V’ shape is best practice for full and even coverage. A common mistake is not using enough product, and only covering the dark circles without applying the product in the surrounding areas. Applying it in a ‘V’ shape will cover the entire area, allowing the product to not only cover the darkness, but blend with the rest of your complexion.
Vasanti Cosmetics Liquid V02 colour correcting concealer buff brush is easy to apply a ‘V’ with, blend out really well and gives a flawless finish. It’s quick, easy and effective. I made a video on it that I am going to share on Instagram soon!
This orange colour correcting concealer is literally a dark circle eraser that instantly lifts my under eyes and blends perfectly with the rest of my face. It’s the perfect shade of orange for my skin tone as well. There have been days where I have had sleepless nights and end up looking so tired with darker under eyes the next day but just a little bit of Vasanti Cosmetics Liquid V02 is enough to brighten it up instantly and gets rid of dark circles instantly.
Availability: Available at Shoppers Drug Mart across Canada
The texture is very creamy so it doesn’t dry out your skin on application and is very easy to blend. I would say it is the best concealer for dry skin as it doesn’t make your under eye dry, cakey or patchy on application.
If you are looking for vegan concealers, your search actually ends here. Vasanti Cosmetics Liquid V02 Correcting concealer is 100% vegan and cruelty-free. It is also a light-weight concealer and the perfect concealer for middle/warmer skin tones.
