Mac CC Colour Correcting Compact neutralize review swatch

I picked up the yellow toned powder, simply because I suffer from redness on my face especially my cheeks. Yellow counteracts this and helps to neutralize pink or red tones.

You would be forgiven for being a bit scared when looking at the colour in the pan as it is a very yellow colour....think simpsons!! 

However when swatched and applied onto the skin it is a lovely finely milled subtle shade almost transluscent that helps cover up and counter act any redness or discolouration. Don't worry you won't end up looking like Marge Simpson!!



Mac CC Colour Correcting Compact reduce redness rosacea

It is sheer, almost translucent so doesn't really add much colour but instead creates an invisible veil that helps illuminate, neutralize redness and prevent oiliness throughout the day. So can be used as a setting powder or finishing powder.

Is in a pressed powder form, within a compact which houses a mirror so is absolutely great for touch-ups when out and about.
So if like me you suffer from redness, rosacea then this would be a great finishing powder to set your make-up.
I like to use my Real Techniques Stippling brush to apply this to my cheeks, nose area and chin. Sort of push the powder onto the skin. 
Doesn't go cakey and can be touched up throughout the day.
It was difficult to take a swatch picture that showed up clearly, as it is so sheer and almost translucent!

Have you tried any of the MAC prep and prime CC powders? What did you think?

Take time for you. Take care and look after yourself.
Thanks for popping by luv acesparklestar xoxo
