Hey guys! How’s it going?
For today’s post, I got a review for you on the Celebre Pro Correct-It and Conceal-It palettes from Mehron Makeup. Both of these palettes were part of the press goodie bag I received at The Makeup Show Orlando back in March. I’m under no obligation to talk about them and as always, opinions are totally my own.
You ready? Ok let’s get started!
So if you didn’t know, Mehron Makeup is a brand that’s geared mainly toward professional makeup artists. They sell a lot of kits and heavy duty stuff ranging from normal makeup application to stage makeup to body art and fantasy makeup.
Both of these palettes retail for $21.95 each and come with 6 cream shades. The pan sizes are pretty good (maybe a little bigger than an old Kennedy half dollar… yeah I just totally dated myself with that, didn’t I? Well, the pans are good size regardless).
Let’s start with the Correct-It palette (and a little product info from the Mehron site):
Celebre Pro-HD Correct-It is a multi-use cream makeup that is perfect for neutralizing and correcting varying skin tones, discolorations, sallowness and dark circles. The refined oil and fragrance-free blend is infused with vitamin E, aloe vera, and the anti-oxidant power of pomegranate, to protect and moisturize the skin. Celebre Pro-HD Correct-It is available in a deluxe palette of 6 perfectly neutralizing shades allowing for targeted customized correction to even-out any skin tone.
As you know, each shade helps correct problem areas on the skin. Let’s break it down color by color:
- Lavender – Corrects Yellow/Sallowness/Dark Spots
- Yellow – Corrects Purple or Blue (good for under eye bags/dark circles)
- Green – Corrects Redness
- Orange/Peach – Corrects Blue (good for dark circles)
The consistency of the product at first feels kind of hard to the touch, then becomes creamy as the heat from your fingers warm it up and it becomes more emollient. You can apply using your fingers or you can use a brush if you like. I usually go with a brush, because I don’t like getting product on my fingers. The bottom row is pretty much 3 different shades of of a peach/orange dark circle corrector, obviously to suit a wide range of skin tones. I’ve used the one in the middle as it’s best suited for light to medium skin tones. The other are definitely for deeper skin tones. But yeah I’ve used the one in the middle and it works as well as my Tarte and NYX correctors. I’ve also used the green corrector with positive results. I haven’t used any of the other shades in the palette (yet at least).
Now let’s talk about the Conceal-It palette:
Celebre Pro-HD Conceal-It delivers satin smooth buildable coverage for every skin type. This versatile cream makeup is perfect for concealing any type of blemish or discoloration. Conceal-It contains no refined oils, is fragrance-free, and includes vitamin E and the powerful antioxidants of pomegranate. This advanced formula also includes aloe vera to help soothe the skin. Celebre Pro-HD Conceal-It is available in a deluxe palette of 6 concealing shades that allow for targeted customized coverage for any skin tone.
The consistency of these concealers is the same as in the Correct-It palette. Mehron says the best way to apply their concealers and correctors is in thin layers and gradually build up to the coverage you need. So you can get anywhere from sheer/light coverage all the way up to full coverage. If you use too much at once, it may not blend out well and/or look cakey or patchy. Again, you can use your fingers or a brush. I’ll usually apply with a flat concealer brush then blend out with a damp sponge. I’ve only used the shades in the top row, as the ones on the bottom are way too dark for me. I could probably use them as cream bronzer/contour, but I have oily/combo skin, so cream face products usually don’t play well with me. But maybe one day I’ll experiment.
If you’re a professional makeup artists, these palettes would probably be a great addition to your kit as they can be used on a variety of skin tones. For everyday makeup enthusiasts, these palettes could still be beneficial to you if you want something that’s good quality that has every shade of corrector you may need and/or something that can double as a cream contour/highlight palette if you’re into cream face products.
And that should do it! Have you tried either of these palettes or any other concealer or corrector palettes?
As always, thank you all so much for reading and your support. I’ll see you again soon in my next post!
