A palette with color correctors is definitely a go-to for any occasion.
It disguises some blemishes, refreshes skin tone, neutralises dark circles or corrects something you don’t like by combining some shades together.
This is all possible with the elegant Makeup Revolution Ultra Base Corrector Palette.
I’ve been drooling over this palette for quite a while. And now I finally bought it, but I’m not at all so happy about it now…
It doesn’t work well for me. However, some of the shades are quite helpful.
I tested it against my problem skin and the skin of my friend that doesn’t actually have any significant imperfections. So now I’m ready to tell you about the pros and cons of this product.

About my skin:
I have breakouts, acne scars, reddened areas, dark circles, etc. Well, I have the whole face to cover up, so such palettes are meant for me.
My skin without any makeup. Creepy
The results and my impressions:
This palette is a must-have for makeup artists and the girls who are good with their hands!
But honestly, what can I do to apply it to my skin evenly?!
I guess, there is no secret. It’s just meant for girls with normal skin without any particular skin issues or anything.
Green corrector: It is to conceal acne and acne spots. I use such products pretty often and I really love them. Here, the shade is not really intense, but muted, so it can disguise some insignificant redness, fine pimples and some acne scars. As far as you understand, the coverage is light, so it doesn’t cover up heavy blemishes. To top it off, it transfers down my face whenever I apply a beige corrector or a foundation on top of it. The results are pretty bad.
Green shade is applied to redness and yellow color is used under my eyes
Yellow corrector: It neutralises purple tones and covers up blood vessels that are very noticeable on my eyelids. I don’t have any complexes about it, because it’s alright and natural. This yellow color neutralises the purple tones around my eyes very well and makes my look refreshed in tracts. I tried it also on my friend. She has more distinguished blood vessels and it does a really good job with her.
Pink corrector: This one makes my skin luminous. I apply it along with the white color and a foundation on top. The results please me. My skin looks so fresh. Moreover, I love using this corrector for my cheekbones with a lightweight mineral powder on top. Thus I get a subtle and light flush.
Peach corrector: It’s meant for refreshing the skin tone. I also use it as a makeup base, when my skin lacks some freshness or whenever I put on nude makeup.
Orange corrector: This is my favorite shade out there! I frequently cancel out my dark circles because of constant lack of sleep. I do not apply it to my fine lines under my eyes, because it can crease there… Other than that, the performance is great.
White corrector: You can mix it with the other shades to get a perfect color or you can use it for highlighting some areas. It rarely comes in handy in my case, because it matches girls with fair skin more. By the way, it claims to be a highlighter, but it doesn’t work for me this way…
1. Versatile: Makeup artists and those who are skillful in this area will definitely love this product.
2. Low cost: The price is amazing!
3. Stunning design: The palette is expensive-looking, although it’s made of plastic. It has a huge mirror that opens up 180 degrees, which is a huge plus.
4. Some shades do a really good job.
The pink, peach, orange and yellow correctors do what they promise.
1. Some shades may travel down my face and damage the whole look.
This is about the green shade in particular. It doesn’t really conceal anything, but only clogs my pores and emphasises flakey bits.
It hardly covers up the redness on my nose, because it emphasizes dry patches right away! I didn’t even know I had them!
More than that, the yellow tone sets into my fine lines sometimes, which is not good.

2. The palette doesn’t disguise any visible and heavy blemishes.
Bare face/with correctors
3. It has a greasy formula, so it doesn’t match girls with oily skin. The shades may travel down the face. Also, girls with dry skin should be careful with this product.
4. Requires a makeup base.
5. It best applies with a brush.
With a powder on top
My verdict: The palette is too fiddly to work with. It’s more suitable for girls with normal skin and insignificant imperfections to make the look flawless.
It won’t conceal breakouts… So I’m not planning on using it further!
By the way, my friend is obsessed with this palette!
I give it 3 stars! I really appreciate this brand and I love some of their products, but this time I’m totally disappointed.
Thank you for your attention!
