Hello beautiful ladies,
Today, I have a corrector review for you, from the luxe brand Giorgio Armani. Read on for more details on this makeup product.
Corrective concealer in four color-balancing shades designed to target specific complexion concerns. Exclusive micro-fil technology allows for targeted correction, visibly concealing imperfections while light-reflecting pearls impart a halo of light imparting a seamless, flawless facial canvas.
Corrective concealer shades include:
1. Pink: counteracts sallow, dull skin and effectively corrects yellow and olive pigmentation.
2. Orange: targets olive or darker skin tones to conceal under-eye circles, freckles, dark spots and hyper-pigmentation.
3. Yellow: Corrects redness and blemishes and brightens dull skin for fair skintones.
4. Green: Corrects redness and blemishes and brightens dull skin for medium-to-deep skin tones.
USD 39 for 0.14 oz/4.4 ml (excluding any shipping and taxes).
My Experience with Giorgio Armani Master Corrector #2 Orange:
Giorgio Armani Master Corrector in Orange comes in a small, transparent plastic tube (like those lip gloss tubes) with a black screw top cap. The tube has no details about the product except the shade number. The tube comes packed in a black cardboard box which contains the ingredient list and other details about the product. The cap has a brush attached to it, which is thin and petite. The brush is very much like the ones we get with liquid eyeliners.
Giorgio Armani Master Corrector in Orange is not actually orange in color. In first glance, it actually looks like a concealer. It is a very light peachy shade. The consistency is just like a liquid-creamy concealer. It is neither too thick not very liquid-y. It spreads easily and blends like a dream, and you do not need a lot of it either. Just a couple of swipes are good. The thin brush allows the exact placement of the product.
The product blends easily using fingers or brush. I mostly use my fingers to blend the product, but my Sigma 3DHD Precision Brush works great as well. In fact, for blending the product, my Sigma E40 brush works as charm too. Or should I say that this product works as a charm with anything and everything.
The product is very lightweight. I completely forget that I am wearing the corrector, it is so weightless. The product is build-able as well. It can be layered, but on layering too much, it does crease pretty soon. I have moderate dark circles and this product covers them pretty well, but if you have dark circles that are very severe, I am not sure if the product will be able to correct them. It might look ashy. It does not seem to be a very heavy-duty corrector. Also, though the brand says that this shade is for dark and deep skin tones (they have a lighter shade, shade 1, for fair-medium skin tones), but I feel that it will not suit deeper skin tones and will look ashy on them.
On days when my dark-circles are grave, I use the Becca Backlight Targeted Colour Corrector Peach as I feel that this product is not sufficient.
The best part about this product is that it can be worn alone, and I totally love this fact. It simplifies my make-up routine and lessens the time too. I don’t even have to set it with a powder. It stays put on its own. It wears well under concealer as well. It looks absolutely natural under my eyes. I applied it and then asked my hubby if he feels that I have applied something and he literally stared under my eyes and said that my under-eyes look natural, with nothing applied. 😉
If layered correctly, the product stays put for whole day, without any creasing or fading, totally a master product. 🙂 The product does not have any fragrance and does not irritate my sensitive skin.

Would I Repurchase/Recommend Giorgio Armani Master Corrector #2 Orange?
This is an awesome product to use. The only deterrent is the price, but I feel the product’s performance justifies the price totally. I would repurchase it till they are manufacturing it. 😀 I wholeheartedly recommend this product.
