MAC CC Colour Correct Loose Powder is a welcome part of the permanent collection.  It is, as the name suggests, a color-correcting product line that neutralizes dark spots, brightens the complexion and gives the illusion of more even-toned skin. 

We know that opposing colors in the color wheel cancel each other.  Yellow cancels purple, lavender cancels yellow, salmon or apricot color neutralizes blue, and peach-beige shade brightens.

MAC comes up with three new products that aim to color correct.  MAC now has the MAC Prep + Prime CC Colour Correcting Loose Powder, the MAC Prep + Prime CC Colour Correcting Compact, and the MAC Prep + Prime CC Colour Correcting SPF 30 that comes in a tube and is a cream product.  I will be discussing all of these lines on this blog.

In this post, we are focusing on the MAC Prep + Prime CC Colour Correcting Loose Powder.

The MAC Prep + Prime CC Colour Correcting Loose Powder has four variants in different colors that target each discoloration problem. Adjust is the peachy beige color that aims to brighten the complexion.   Neutralize is the yellow color that cancels the purple discoloration.  Recharge is supposedly the apricot shade that neutralizes undereye blue circles.  Finally, the lavender shade is called Illuminate which corrects yellow or sallow skintone.

My favorite from the group is Neutralize, the yellow shade. I like to apply this loose powder on my undereye area to brighten it and make me look refreshed.  The apricot shade Recharge is supposed to do this task, but it looks too dark of a color on my undereye area that it makes my dark circles a lot worse.

Illuminate is perfect for those who have sallow skintone.  Adjust, the peachy beige color, is my go to loose finishing powder.  It gives a feather light touch of powder on my skin to set my makeup and to make my skin a little brighter. 

My top favorite is Neutralize, because it works just like Well Rested of bareMinerals to keep my undereye are looking awake and refreshed.  My second favorite is Adjust, a nice, brightening loose powder that sets makeup.  I don't care very much for Recharge, and apricot shade that is just way too dark in my opinion.  I wish that MAC made this more of a salmon shade instead of an apricot one.

I am glad that MAC made this line permanent, as we always need a good colour-correcting line for our discoloration issues that are often here to stay. 

Have you tried this line?  Which one is your favorite?
