Dior Fix It Colour 2-in-1 Prime & Colour Correct: Review and Swatches

For Fall 2016, Dior is extending its Fix It concealer liner with a handful of brand new color-correcting shades. Available in a light blue, green, apricot, and yellow, the Dior Fix It Colour 2-in-1 Prime & Colour Correct ($45 CAD) promises to blur skin textures and neutralize discoloration. To see some swatches and my thoughts on the formulation, click.......

The Dior Fix It Colours come in pretty lipstick-like tubes. The inside has a shiny silver finish while the caps are clear but colored to indicate the shade inside. The bottom of the tube has the classic knob design etched with the "CD" monogram.

Each Fix It Colour has a gel core that hydrates and smooths while the outer layer contains the pigments. Each three shades are fairly sheer but buildable; unlike other color correctors I've tried, these are much easier to blend out so it's actually possible to wear them on their own without an additional skin-colored concealer.
Although the Fix Its have an easy-to-blend formulation, the wear wasn't great. I felt that the slick and thin texture faded quite easily throughout the day unless you really top it off with some hefty concealer and powder.

400 Green: This is a very light green designed to combat redness. I've never been a big fan of green concealers because I just find them super difficult to cover-up, ending up with a slight green tint. However, this one blends out very nicely. It neutralizes redness without looking green!
200 Apricot: Designed to warm up dull skin and neutralize dark circles. This is ideal for darker skin tones.
300 Yellow: A counterpart of Apricot designed for fairer skin, this shade is great for concealing under eye circles. I find that if I use this under my eyes, I don't really need to go in with another concealer. With that said, the coverage is not as opaque as your average concealer and the wear is a bit short due to the thin, slick texture.

Dior is available at The Bay, Sephora, Holt Renfrew, and Shoppers Drug Mart.
