Australis Green Colour Corrector Review+Swatches

 Australis says their Colour Correctors provide "sheer colour, light reflecting pigment that counterbalances skin imperfections without unnatural, cakey coverage. The soothing, antibacterial botanicals assist in skin repair and fight environmental aggressors. Provides long lasting correction with a hydrating, never-dry, feel. Can also be used as a highlighter or illuminator. Oat Kernel and Willowherb provide relief for irritated, reactive and itchy skin. Mushoom complex: fights bacterial proliferation and reduces the appearance of pore size. Glycerin: natural skin hydrator that prevents moisture loss and flaking dryness. Mica: reflects light for an airbrushed finish". Australis offers their Colour Corrector is two shades - I have the green one. This corrector contains 15ml (.5 fl oz) and retails for $10.95 AUD. Australis is cruelty free, and this product is vegan friendly. This corrective primer was made in Thailand.

Australis' Colour Correctors have simple packaging - they come in an opaque white squeeze tube. The brand logo, product name, and product description are all printed on the tube - its not anything special really, but it gets the job done. Unforunately, packaging is not recyclable.
 I have mixed feelings about this color correcting primer. Australis' Green Colour Corrector has a great consistency, its very thin and blendable. As promised, this primer is both soothing and and hydrating - it certainly helps to calm my itchy acne. Australis' Green Colour Corrector soft, minty hue is indeed very effective for knocking back the redness in my complexion. Unfortunately, Australis felt the need to load their corrector with shimmer. Why?! Its so unnecessary and ruins the product's otherwise effective coverage of discoloration. The green tinge is not visible once concealer or foundation is applied over it, though the shimmery finish will peek through if you're using product with lighter coverage. While Australis' Colour Corrector smoothes over dry patches, but the shimmer can accentuate raised bumps and blemishes. This product has a soft, floral scent to it.
Australis' Green Colour Corrector has so much promise. The consistency is awesome, and it really does soothe and cool the skin. This product has exactly the right amount of green tint needed to disguise redness. If only it wasn't for that damn shimmer! If Australis comes to their senses and reformulates their correctors without shimmer, I'll definitely repurchase. 'Til then, you should probably skip this product.
