MaxFactor Colour Corrector Stick Primark Dupe!

I am a huge fan of Colour Correcting products and adore the Makeup Revolution palette, upon which ive just hit pan on green *cries*. I find they work well with my skin to correct and conceal, more so with the redness I have on my cheeks, for which I do need the green. It took me a long time to accept that putting something green on my face would not leave me looking like Grotbags (remember her) and infact it would work.

The idea of using green to correct redness is a blessing as it neutralises redness whether that is blemishes, blochiness and in some cases a broken vein. You simply apply it to the area you want to correct, gently blend, add more if required and then finish off your make-up. 


Primark often has some hidden little gems and I was surprised to find they did colour correcting sticks, even better they had been massively reduced, so I bought one of each and this is what they look like - notice the similarity?

Yes, to me, they are the exact same colour corrector stick that is sold by MaxFactor, only the Primark versions are a whole £8.50 cheaper, should they work!  The swatches show the Primark crayon at the top and MaxFactor at the bottom, even colour wise they are similar, the only real difference is the formula and for me, the Primark crayon is much softer, though both blend like an absolute dream.

Do they work? Yes, I find it hard to choose who wins between them, both do an amazing job at concealing the redness but given the difference in price, then I would opt for Primark every time, purely to save £8.50.

  3. This looks like a good dupe, i have the Max Factor one too. I remember a couple of years ago Primark used to do a different range of makeup that looked exactly like Benefit x

  16. If you want my opinion, I wouldn't be surprised if they're both from the same factory. The similarities are quite numerous!
    Very good article anyway as I didn't know any of the two products and I love skin tone correction products.

  18. I have never considered Primark for make up and beauty products. I have redness and so should check this out.

  19. It's always good when you find something that works at a good price. You are right, there doesn't look to be much difference between the primark and max factor one, except the price of course.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Only heard of a green concealer now, but based on your post it looks effective! The prcie is reasonable too! Great post x

    ReplyDelete
  24. I still find the idea of using bright colours to counteract other colours so amusing, but if it works then it must be worth it! I should probably give it a go. I love when you can find cheaper gems that work just as well as the branded stuff! Stephanie x

  26. Ive never thought about using a green concealer to corrected redness, Ive heard of the maxfactor stick but as im not massive on beauty i didnt really consider it, as the primark one is pretty similar and so much cheaper it might be worth giving it a go!

  33. Oh green is quite a revealing colour. I wouldn't have a clue where to use it lol

    ReplyDelete
  34. I don't mind brands create dupes for products, especially if the products are high-end and therefore come with a pretty hefty price tag, but it does annoy me when they just straight up copy the packaging. They could at least choose a different font or more the writing around a little! x
