Collection Primed & Ready Correct & Conceal Palette Review - 1

Colour correcting concealer palettes - I've been seeing them all over the place lately. Designed to help us in our quest for flawless complexions, they contain concealers in all manner of crazy pastel shades. Each one counteracts a different colour based issue we might have with our skin - such as excessive redness (breakouts, spider veins), sallow yellow tones or dark purplish hues under the eyes.

I don't have huge amounts of colour related issues with my skin, but I do get a bit of redness due to broken capillaries around my nose and cheeks and the occasional blemish on my chin or forehead. (I know, what a goddess!) So although I didn't want to spend a fortune on a fancy palette, I was interested in trying one that could offer some help with the redness. I opted for the Primed & Ready Correct & Conceal Palette from Collection. At £4.99 it's very affordable, plus it's super compact and lightweight, making it perfect for travel. There's even a handy little mirror inside.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - the quality Collection produces at such a low price point is astounding. Their Lasting Perfection concealer has cult status in the blogosphere and for good reason, so needless to say, I had high hopes for this palette.

It contains a green concealer - the one I was most interested in - to neutralise redness, and a lilac one to counteract yellow or sallow tones, which I must confess I don't really have a use for. These are a cream to powder formula. You're supposed to blend them over the areas where you need them as a first step.

For step two, you cover everything over with the liquid Primed & Ready concealer, before setting it with the invisible setting powder.

The quality of the products is great and everything applies easily. The liquid concealer is very creamy and offers a lot of coverage - it's actually very effective at covering blemishes in its own right. I liked the little brush provided to apply the green concealer to small blemishes and the veins around my nose, but you'd probably want to use a bigger one or perhaps your fingers for any larger areas of redness.

 So, does it work? 

Well, there's no doubt that it does a good job of concealing the redness, but is it noticeably better than my regular concealer? Honestly, in my case, I don't think it is. However, I don't necessarily think that this product is a waste of money. If you're suffering with a larger than usual breakout, a palette like this would be great to have in your stash. Likewise, if you generally struggle to disguise discolouration with your usual base products, you might just love this. As for me, I'm going to hold it in reserve for a day when any spots decide to run wild. It might just become my best friend in that situation!

Have you tried a concealer palette? What's your opinion on them?

  1. I have tried a few single corrctors, my favorite being the one by Bobbi Brown, and one palette by Kiko. The green and the peach work quite well, but what really makes a difference for me is applying the lilac to my old acne scars that are more brown than red. It really helps neutralize them.

  2. As you said, I think it is a great option for people who don't suffer from breakouts very often as I personally wouldn't invest in a correcting palette which is very expensive to only use it once a month! Lovely review :)

    1. Thank you! Yep, it's definitely only worth investing in a fancier one if you can't get the results you want from a regular concealer. x

  4. I've never tried colour correcting specifically something that isn't skin-tone. I've heard a lot about Collection's concealers and this sounds alright for a make up rookie like me. Love how authentic your post is x

  5. I can't say I have tried a concealer palette, let alone a coloured one? I'm marvelled at the fact that you can wear beautiful shades of colour as a concealer? And at such a affordable price? Bonus!

    1. They're coloured like this in order to cancel out the colours on your face that you don't want! There are loads available but this is one of the cheapest I've found. x

  8. I have never tried colour correctors because I don't see myself needing it for now. I am tempted to get a green one because I have some hormonal redness around my nose but other than that, I just don't see myself reaching for it.

    1. Yes, this is pretty much the conclusion I've come to - most skin types probably don't need more than regular concealers. x

  9. That looks so pigmented, I've not really tried a colour corrector before. I do love Collection concealer, so surprising that the product is amazing for such a cheap price.
