Review : Ben Nye Blue Neutralizer



Product Info from Ben Nye:
Conceal blue-hued discolorations, such as veins, tattoes, bruises and deep undereye circles with this unique palette. Expect 50-200 applications.

RETAIL PRICE: $7.99 excluding shipping.

WEIGHT: 8.4 grams

SHADES : Available in 4 shades.
* NB-01, 02, 03 & 04

PROS:
* no weird scent
* can be used alone or under concealer
* pot contains a lot of product

* pigmented! a little goes a long way.
* I'm lucky the lightest shade NB-01 fits my NC20 skintone.
* not oily as Skinfood Salmon Concealer
* easy to blend, does not settle into fine lines.
* neutralizes my purplish undereye circles
* did not fade and cake when set/blended properly

CONS:
* can look cakey if not applied correctly
* not available locally

* limited shades. Its either hit or miss with this product.


TIPS:
Can be layered with liquid or cream concealers. Tried using Ben Nye under Revlon Age Defying Liquid Concealer, MAC Studio Finish concealer & The Balm Timebalm concealer and it works great.


ADDICTION FACTOR:
Been using it everyday since I got it... I can't imagine applying concealer without this product. Since I have purplish undereye circles, its really important to apply corrector first or else my concealer looks ashy =P

RATING : 5/5

Great review! I expect this brand to be amazing 'cause I think it was generally made for stage makeup. Lots of gurus use this!
