Au Naturale Color Theory Color Corrector in Flax

Au Naturale Organic Color CorrectorEvery makeup brand, organic or not, has a concealer (or a few) in its makeup range. But there’s another beast out there called color correctors. I don’t think I’ve mentioned any of these on the blog before, because I simply didn’t use any. Not because I don’t have any blemishes or impurities, but a regular concealer does an excellent job for me. However, I know that some people are interested in using color correctors because there’s an area they’d like to target specifically (think, dark under-eye circles). This is where color correctors are supposed to do their magic and to work better than a regular concealer.

So it happens that Au Naturale has a range of vegan, natural color correctors called Color Theory. It consists of 5 different shades (Peach, Lavender, Linen, Flax, and Sweet Basil), all created to oppose and neutralize the unwanted complexion flaws. The shade I have is Flax, designed to target purple or blue bruises, veins, or under-eye circles. It is said that yellow concealers are the most versatile and are also great for evening out and brightening complexions. It sounds like a dream!

Well, not quite. I adore Au Naturale as a company, and most of their products are beyond amazing, but I was a bit confused with this product.

Let’s start with the pros:

– I like the packaging a lot, which is also very convenient to use. The retractable tube makes it a great on-the-go product.

– the texture is creamy, smooth and easy to apply

– my under-eye circles aren’t that dark, but I still noticed some improvements. The yellow color really hid any dark spots.

Now, onto the cons:

– no matter what I did, the color corrector turned out cakey. I’ve tried to apply different amounts of it, different application techniques, with different products, but the result was the same – I could see there was a product sitting under my eyes. Also, it does crease, even after some time I had to fix my under eye area.

So overall, yes, this natural color corrector neutralizes dark circles, but no matter how much I’ve tried, I just couldn’t make it work.
