Color Correcting with Hard Candy – Giveaway!

Disclaimer: PR sample, see bottom.

Hard Candy Color correct stick yellow and lavender and Color Correct Radiant Primer green for redness review and giveaway on BeautyJudy

Having such a ruddy complexion, I have a keen interest in how I can even my skin tone as part of my makeup routine.

I recently had an opportunity to try color correcting-products from Hard Candy, and I was so impressed I wanted to share my experience with you, AND offer you a giveaway to try it for yourself!

I’ll walk you through adding this into my routine!

I started with a naked face, after moisturizing with my Pixi SkinTreats multi-misting regime!

Then I picked up the green-toned Radiant Primer.

This primer feels creamy, and has great green pigmentation. It truly neutralizes my redness.

It goes on smoothly, but just like other primers, you shouldn’t keep blending and blending, you have to work quick and stop because it starts setting. I blend as if applying moisturizer, and then pat. I used this all over my face because I have redness from rosacea all over from top to bottom. I went back and spot-checked a couple trouble areas like my nose and cheeks but not all; I left some areas so I could use the yellow Correcting stick on them.

One thing to note is that this is fragrant. In fact, among the ingredients, fragrance is listed. It’s some kind of scent that has a hint of floral, but a musky clean…and it lingers on my face for a few hours. I actually like it a lot, but those with sensitivity to scents may not. It fades a bit as it wears but I could also smell it on my fingers, which I had washed at least once after using.

Here’s my face after the primer:

You can see that it has toned down my redness, although some is still peeking through. Some of my red bumps are also stubbornly there, but that’s what the Color Correct Stick in Yellow is for!

Here’s a swatch of it with the Lavender-hued pencil as well, which is for medium to dark skin tones for dullness and sallowness:

After using the primer, I used the Color Correct Stick in Yellow to spot-cover my red bumps and some of the more stubborn redness on my face.

I dabbed and drew on my face where it was needed, then used a Beauty Blender-type sponge to blend it into my skin. I didn’t blend so hard on some of my spots so that it would provide stronger coverage.

Here’s my face after both the primer and pencil:

Now I’m ready for my foundation and makeup!
