1. Under Eye Circles: My favourite of the bunch, this little yellow crayon really does help to conceal and counteract even the darkest of circles. I've been using it almost daily over foundation, touching up with just a little concealer - nobody knows I'm feeling half dead inside!
2. Highlighter: Probably the most disappointing out of the five, as the pay off is really quite limited. If you want to add a minimal touch of very subtle light reflecting pigments, then this could be for you. However, for my needs this just wasn't strong enough.
3. Dark Spot: As I don't suffer from pigmentation issues this was hard for me to use, but the formula is pigmented and provides a delicate shade of pink to lighten dark areas. Great for those wishing to create a natural makeup finish, but still want to counteract dark spots.
4. Redness: It's long been known green pigments can counteract redness, but this crayon brings that story to life in a modern way. The colour is light, rather than a dark colour that proves hard to blend, and works well to counteract redness around the nose and on the cheeks.
5. Dullness: I've never thought of using a blue colour to counteract dullness, but it really works. I loved the YSL lilac CC Cream - this is a great budget alternative. Great applied around the eyes to lift skin and help your complexion appear fresher.
