Today I have Giorgio Armani’s Master Corrector in both 1 Pink and 2 Orange. This is a corrective concealer with micro light-reflective pearls that is meant to wear under concealer. I believe both can be used under the eyes.
The two colors:
– Pink: More-so of a salmon pink than a true pink. Designed to counteract sallow, dull skin and correct yellow and olive pigmentation.
– Orange: When swatched, it appears as a deep, almost burnt orange. Designed to targets olive and dark skin tones to conceal under-eye circles, freckles, dark spots and hyper-pigmentation.
I originally bought the pink one at Sephora under the advisement of their “color specialist”, but after looking at the reviews online, it looks like #2 orange is more popular for correcting under eye-circles. I ended up purchasing #2 Orange to compare. In my situation, I would describe my under-eye circles as a combination of purple, blue and pink.
If you take a look at the color wheel above, you’ll find that pink should counteract greenish veins (or under-eyes) whereas orange counteracts blue veins.
As I mentioned earlier, this corrector is meant to be worn under concealer; otherwise you’ll end up looking like you have pink/orange bags. Only a very small amount is needed, and it’s recommended that you limit yourself to areas of darkness. I find that when I use a heavier hand, the concealer ends up mixing around the corrector which ends up making my concealer look darker (either more orange or pink…). Overall I prefer using the corrector with my ring finger and a Beauty Blender to pat in my concealer.
I’m still unsure if I see a big difference when I use the Master Corrector as a opposed to not using the Master Corrector. Between the Pink and Orange shade, I think they both work under the eyes but I have a slight preference towards the orange shade.
