I have very deep under-eye circles and had gotten sick of people telling me that I look tired so I went hunting for a corrector. I have played around with a lot of different mixes of these correctors to try to cover the circles, but still haven't found the perfect recipe.
The blue neutralizer seems to work the best for my circles, but I still have raccoon eyes after applying my concealer from Dermablend overtop. Maybe it's time to consult a pro makeup artist for some tips -- you'd think that a good corrector and concealer would help to make those circles disappear!
Also, I do find that I have to use some eye cream or moisturizer underneath this product, otherwise it will settle into lines. And, lid of the product is great for mixing, so you don't have to have a separate container.
It is made in the USA, in WI and NY, which is nice.
I LOVE this product from graftobian!!! It's really well pigmented. A little bit of this product goes a long way. And I love that it has 5 different shades of correctors. Works like a dream! It lasts all day under my eyes when I set it with a powder. No creasing or settling in to my fine lines!!! Absolutely amazing!! My HG corrector!
I love the way Graftobian hi-Def products perform and how they look on the skin. I have several of the foundation palettes, including a deep range for contouring. I also have this corrector palette, which is excellent. The colors are lovely and subtle, and the texture is buttery and smooth.
My low-ish rating is due to the fact that all four of my palettes have turned rancid after about a year and a half to two years of purchasing. They still look fine and perform fine, but have that terrible scent of rancid oil. I've tried them out since discovering the spoilage, hoping perhaps the smell might dissipate after applying. Sadly, no. I have stink face.
I own other pro cream products that are still perfect after being in my stash for much, much longer (RCMA, Mehron Celebre, Cinema Secrets), but this one seems to be more delicate, or has fewer preservatives, or uses oils with a shorter shelf life.
It's not a problem at all if you go through your products quickly, but I know a lot of us tend to hoard and use products cyclically, so just wanted to warn people that this is not a product you can hoard and expect it to wait patiently for you.
I don't expect a cream-based product to last forever. All I can do, though, is compare it to similar products that I also own, and which have better stood the test of time. In comparison to those, this product performs beautifully but spoils relatively quickly. I would buy it again, though (and use it up quickly), because it's otherwise wonderful.
Wonderful product! I purchased this for my kit. I think I paid around $25. Has a corrector for every condition. Applies beautifully, nice and creamy but not heavy. It layers great underneathe concealer. Very pigmented, so a little goes a long way. Will repurchase.
If anyone has a concern - many cream products "sweat". There is no problem with this, it doesn't affect the product negatively!
I LOVE this product in the 5-color palette!! I have dark circles around my eyes and rosacea/broken capillaries AND dark spots on my face. The colors go on smooth and don't cake up. They're highly-pigmented so they cover great without having to pile it on. The colors are also sold individually but, if you need more than one color, it's a better value to buy the 5-pan palette.
Once again thumbs up.
I have the 5 color corrector pallett.
Product goes on very well and is not heavy or cakey
The colors themselves are really well (not to light or to dark)
I have very very dark circles. Brown with a little blue sometimes if im sick or did not get much sleep. The darker Salmon color works for evening out the skin tone, and ligher pink/salmon color is for highlighting/concealing.
Only negative for me is I have to order mine online.
Other than that very pleased
I love this pallet. It took me months, though, to get it right to correct my undereye medium darkness. At first I use the Grey/Blue Neutralizer, no matter how little I use, it turned out to be too bright for me. I mix it with Blue Neutralizer, same effect. Then one day, I tried the Blue Neutralizer with a tiny bit of Deep Red & Purple Concealer, it worked. For redness like pimples and rosacea, I use Blue Neutralizer and tiny bit of Redness Remover. For that "inner glow",I use a bit of Light/Highlight on my cheekbones after foundation then I apply loose powder, then blush on (powder of course) and everything is all right in my world.
I saw this and the colors looked great... not too dark or too light. It applies so nice and creamy. Very pigmented and you only need a little bit on your brush, but what I don't like about it is what it contains. Lots of waxes and oils. I tend to break out easily and this definitely wasn't skin friendly for me.

I love this corrector palette.
I have been using it for the past 8 months and it has made a huge difference in my make up application. I have terrible skin , redness, broken capillaries, acne prone. I mainly use the green /yellow , for the redness , and the soft orange for the blue under my eyes. I use the correctors first , then apply foundation.I love the highlighter as well , great for high lighting almost any area , specially inner corners of the eye , brow bone , etc.
These correctors are so smooth and creamy , light weight but do the job well , so no drying out or caking.
Very reasonably priced, and it lasts for ages.
I purchased mine for $29 AUD .
disclaimer, I do not have the palette but do have the yellow color corrector and did not see a separate category for it but wanted to wrote to say this is worth the price of the whole palette!.
I have combination skin, though very, very dry in all but my t-zone which gets shiny fast. I love the ease, coverage and look of the Graftobian creme foundation but at times even with HD setting powder my t-zone looked oily faster than I'd like. I also get redness at the top of my cheeks. This product addresses all those issues. I use a dampened sponge on the yellow then the foundation and somehow the slightly drier consistency of the corrector takes down the "slip" just enough and does an even better job at covering any redness with no need to follow with spot concealer.
For oily skinned gals this is a must when using Graftobian! The yellow is pale, cream yellow as opposed to the other yellow correctors I've bought which tend to be bright, orange based yellows. I find this type preferable as its more natural on me. This is great stuff on its own for around the nose, anywhere one naturally gets redness. Again the drier formulation makes it adhere better and longer. I've used the single corrector daily for 6 mos and still have plenty.
For me its not great under the eyes, though wow, mixed with Graftobian creme foundation it looks amazing there! the problem is the foundation alone under the eyes tends to emphasize the dryness I have in that area, so the concealer while looking good, doesn't work for me in that way. It also tends to ball up a bit though not elsewhere though I only have emollient cream under my eyes. I am purchasing the whole palette based on my experience using this and cannot wait!
