Colour correctors are a great tool and I don’t think you can ever have too many. I picked this essence one up a few weeks ago and I really like it. It even has a guide on the back that tells you what to use each colour for.
Formula: It has a smooth, gel-like consistency. Since it’s a pan concealer, it’s thick but not too thick to wear under your eyes. The beige and pink melt into the skin very well, but the green appears a bit chalky.
Pigmentation: All three have great pigmentation when swatching, but fade a bit when applied. You can layer them to a certain degree to build up the colour, but if you add too much the product will slide off. Of the three colours, green had the weakest pigmentation. It kinda just settled into lines after a while, which is not what you want when trying to cover a red blemish.
Longevity of wear: The wear time could be improved; the green and the beige colours faded after a while even after setting them with powder. These would probably wear much better on someone with regular to dry skin, but did not last on me. I had no issues with the pink shade under my eyes.
Packaging: It’s made from pretty flimsy plastic. I kinda feel like if I dropped this once, it would be done for. But at this price replacing it isn’t so bad.
Overall: Good quality product, worth buying for the pink and peach shades. I would recommend this is you’re just starting out with colour correctors and don’t want to spend a lot.
