Optical Illusions Colore - Corrector Pen "Dust in the Wind" by Colorescience Pro

As I reviewed this product I realized for me -  this product had a bit of a learning curve in regard to 1. choosing the correct color for the correct season 2. how to get the cap off. As I tackled the easier task - I realized the longer gold cap was what I needed to pull off and the shorter gold cap was the handle which I needed to twist until the product appeared on the sponge head as shown to the right.  I applied the shade Dust in the Wind under my eyes as well as under my eye brows.

I asked, "Why not?" as I applied to my eyelids. At first, I thought the color was too dark as it appeared ruddy within the first few seconds I applied it. However, as I lightly rubbed all of the product into my skin I realized what an amazing product Optical Illusions was for an evening out. My skin tone absorbed and embraced it!
Currently, I have a bronzed skin tone from tanning in the South Florida sun. Therefore, this shade was perfect for me for now. However, after researching more about this unique creamy powder, I plan to investigate the shade Remedy that Red for my particular skin color and tone for those months when I do not have a suntan.
Just a hint about the sponge applicator. It was a bit scratchy then I realized I had run out of product on the tip. As soon as I twisted more product, I got way too much all at once. I learned to be patient and just twist a few times so that I would not waste the product. Having just enough product on the sponge tip is key to successfully adding it. Make sure you rub it in with your finger. The rubbing in of the product allowed it to successfully blend in with my skin and do it's work effectively. Before I blended it in, it was way too dark.

Optical Illusions Colore Corrector Pen is a unique as well as a multi purpose product. I felt it had cutting-edge appeal for all ages and skin tones. It truly delivered the promise of reducing puffiness and fine lines. The zinc oxide and titanium dioxide for UV protection is a nice added bonus for daytime use.

I would recommend those considering purchasing this product to do your research beforehand. Meaning, read the full description at so you will know which shade is perfect for you for when you want to wear it (remember - it serves many purposes for many seasons).

Those puffy eyes could use some  carrot oil to nourish, cocoa butter to moisturize, and who would turn down dark chocolate extract which will brighten your eyes (and not add an ounce to the scale). Optical Illusions Colore Corrector Pen delivers all that and more!
