Advantages: Gives decent coverage, good as a concealer, helps you control just how much coverage you want
Disadvantages: The pots are messy
I recently went to Lush and stocked up on both some old favourites and some products that I hadn't tried before. One of the products that I hadn't tried before was the colour supplement. The colour supplement is basically a little pot of coloured cream which you then blend with your normal moisturiser to make a tinted moisturiser. You can also use them on their own and they also double up as a concealer.
The colour supplements come in 5 different shades which are light pink, dark pink, light yellow, dark yellow and Jackie Oates.
The different shades are for both lighter and darker skin tones. I got the dark pink as this was supposed to be for darker skin tones who have pink in their skin. As my skin is currently tanned but also quite red this was supposed to be the most suitable one for me.
I used the colour supplement by dabbing a little on my finger and then mixing it with my moisturiser to create my tinted moisturiser. I was a little dubious at first as the colour did look to be darker than what I would normally wear on my skin.
When it was actually on my skin however it immediately transformed my skin and went on really smoothly and silky.
The redness in my skin was immediately calmed down and I found it to be really lightweight and not at all heavy on my skin like a normal foundation. It evened my skin out and left it looking dewy and healthy without covering up my own natural pigmentation. It also didn't leave my skin irritated or clogged feeling.
I wouldn't dream of wearing this if I was having a really bad skin day but for those days when my skin is being ok then this offers just the right amount of coverage.
As a concealer it is also excellent and a little dab of the supplement on any spots or shadows before adding the tinted moisturiser or foundation all but made them disappear.
My one complaint about the colour supplements is that having them in little pots does make it messy when trying to get it out and mixed with moisturiser. For something like this a little squeezey bottle would have been much more practical and cleaner.
The colour supplements cost £7.95 for a 20g pot. The pots last for absolutely ages though and I personally think this is a really good price especially as they work really well too. If you want to try it then I really would recommend that you go in to a Lush store and try one before just buying to make sure that you get the right one for your skin type.
