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 Célèbre, 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.
It might seem unfair to rate this a 3 since maybe I shouldn't expect a cream-based product to last forever. Well, I really don't. 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.

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!

I really do love this product. Bear in mind, these are correctors, not concealers, so applied alone, they most probably will not completely conceal any flaws. But they will help a great deal.
These are so easy to apply and blend. I like to use my fingers to apply before foundation. For under eye circles, I use a mix of the soft orange, yellow and pink correctors depending on how bad my dark circles are on the day. If I have time, I mix the green, yellow and pink to cover hyperpigmentation marks. I don't use these on new acne spots and blemishes because I find they do dry out the surrounding skin resulting in unattractive dry flaky spots. I've also been loving the lightest corrector as a highlight for my brow and cheekbones (used after foundation).
I've had my palette for almost a year now, and have hit pan on the orange and green correctors. At AUD28, I will definitely repurchase.

Holy Grail! Wow. Unbelievable product. I got this product at IMATS NY this past weekend. I use correctors everyday as I have cool undertones that I cover up with green corrector. I've used The Face Shop green corrector that I ordered off ebay from Japan. I've used Ulta's corrector wheel and MUFE's green corrector (pro color in the pot, not the one sold at sephora). Ulta seemed to have the best consistency for me...until now! Graftobian's correctors are amazingly creamy but have wonderful coverage. I have also had a hard time finding any kind of concealer for my brown circles under my eyes. I've used all kinds of products with MAC Pro Longwear being the only one that somewhat gave me the right coverage and consistency (if I blended with a primer). The pink shade in the Graftobian palette covers the brown circles perfectly! I'm suffering from allergies and sleep deprevation today but you'd never know it with the combination of the pink corrector + Mehron concealer wheel. Ladies there is a whole world of awesome (and inexpensive) cosmetics out there that are so much better than your typical department store and Sephora brands.

Love it. I have a lot of redness in my face and a lot of "age" spots. Covering them can be tricky as I like a more natural look. This stuff works like a charm. I use several of the colors and they significantly tone down the red and the brown. The highlighter is great. It really helps to downplay the shadows from the bags under my eyes. As several people have noted, concealing under the eye can be tricky. My suggestion, use a light hand, blend like crazy and make sure you use a finely milled setting powder.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Brown
I thought this would be a winner for sure. It is not. For two very important reasons.
1) This stuff cakes like MAD after a few hours in every fine line you have even with eye cream and primer on underneath.
2) The soft orange shade is VERY dark and orange for my fair skintone, requiring too much mixing with the pink and you cannot wear just this and powder on top. Even with regular concealer on top the orange still bleeds thru. This is just too much work!

Quick note: Could not get this to work on my roadmap undereye circles, until I thought I'd try a fluffy eye blender brush. Smashbox #10, to be precise. A tiny amount of the color to the left and that brush was the missing piece to my puzzle.
I won't say more now, because I just figured this out, and it remains to be seen if it'll settle in my lines.

Love this product ! The pallet contains lots of color correcting concelers. At first I was only intrested in the pink I have some dark sunspots I want to cover and this product does the trick beautifuly . The texture is creamy and blends smoth and gives a natural finish does not settle in fine lines or empisize wrinlkes never never looks cakey ! I am surprised to say that I have found a use for all the colors in this pallet Love the highligt color for eyes and the yellow for dark circles green is great for redness I some times get. Its all verry useful none of the colors go to waste.
I have to add I apply this product with my Beauty Blender it goes on and blends like a dream I also prime with Smash Box Photo Finish Primer and to top it all off with BE Mineral Foundation , The end results a flaless complexion that looks verry smooth and natural not overdone or chalkey .I purchashed this product from Camera Ready website for @21 US $ . I took off one lippie because if you go to the Graftobian site they make you spend a min of 30 US $ .
overall I am thrilled with the quality and end results of this product this is now a must have for me.

I use the grey/brown and the blue neutralizer under my eyes to hide my circles. It works very well, although it can get a little cakey if I'm not careful. Very nice product, and a great all round pallet at a fraction of the price of other comparable quality products. I will repurchase when I run out - which judging by how much I use, will be in another eight or nine months.

At first I wasn't sure but after buying this I will never look back! I do more wedding makeups than I can count and always felt a little glum after someone with pigmentation as covering it was always a problem... until now! The pink Hi-light makes it effortless to cover and I was completely gob smacked with the result! I use the green with a light hand though under foundation to counteract redness and spider viens. Don't love it under the eyes though, even with setting powder it seems to be a bit cakey when cried away. Great buy!

After using this for a few months, I realized that it is really difficult to spread it evenly over my spots. I tried my fingers, concealer brush, sponge, nothing seemed to work. Not only that, it's not thick enough to cover them. Maybe if your flaws aren't that bad, or you don't have as much to cover, this would work well for you. I think the undereye orangish color wasn't bad, but you have to be careful b/c it could cake and settle into fine lines and make you look old. Bottom line, I wasn't thrilled so I gave it up for swap. WIll not be repurchasing. My new HG is Benefit's Erase Paste in Medium!!! Covers my spots SO well.
I bought this product and was pretty happy with the results. I have been using it for over a week now and I must say it is highly pigmented and better than any other corrector I have ever used.
I use the light pink to conceal my melasma and wait a few minutes before I put my foundation over it. I apply with my small ELF concealer brush and I stipple it on. I use the orange for under eye darkness, then I use the green to conceal slight redness I have around my nose and cheeks. Usually my concealer comes right off when I swipe some foundation over it, but this one stays in place pretty nicely.
I tried to stipple it on with a sponge - didn't work so good. My fingers work OK, but I find it is hard to control where it goes. The small concealer brush works best. I just wished that the consistency was a little more hard - sometimes it's hard to get an even spread. (Compare it to spreading butter evenly on toast I guess.) When this happens, there are more deposits of color in certain areas than others. Just make sure to blend well.
I have also started using the Graftobian Hi-Def foundation + Colorstay Active or Shiseido Foundation SPF 42 to thin the consistency out a bit and it works great over the corrector. Some people tend to actually mix the corrector WITH the foundation itself and then apply over needed areas.
Overall, great product for a pretty good price.

I have tried several different corrector palettes - and the Graftobian Hi-Def Glamour Creme Palette, Corrector Shades by far is the best one! It goes on nice and smooth and has excellent coverage. This is definitely one of the products I will never leave the house with!

One of my personal missions for 2009 was to do a complete major overhaul of my makeup collection and one of the last items I needed/wanted is a good concealer. I have tried so many concealers, from many different price points, in the last 20+ plus years that I have lost count and I have become very suspicious of concealers which are suppose to be "miracle workers."
Let me preface my review by saying that I am blessed with very robust skin and I only experience the occasional hormonal break out so the primary reason I need a concealer is to cover my hereditary dark under eye circles (the raccoon look is not an attractive look except on...well...raccoons). On to my review of the Graftobian HD Glamour Creme Corrector Palette and IMO this is indeed a “miracle worker.” Seriously, this is the item which has ALWAYS been missing from my makeup collection for this corrector palette not only lives up to its hype but surpasses it. I was going to purchase the Make Up For Ever 5 Camouflage Cream Palette - No. 1, but it's quite pricey, so I wanted to find and try a cheaper alternative. Thus, I stumbled upon this palette on Camera Ready Cosmetics and Graftobian's company website and after reading the reviews on MUA and some other internet reviews, I decided to take the plunge - so with the desire for a good product, a prayer and a credit card, I placed an order and a few days later this precious palette entered my life. The correctors in this palette apply smoothly, blend easily, you only need a little to do the job and is long lasting. I apply them with a brush then I do the "final" smoothing with my fingers and paired with NYX Concealer In A Jar or NYX Concealer Stick and my under eye dark circles are distant memory -- that is till I remove my makeup.
By the way, the key to using this product is apply a light coat - and do mean a light a coat - if you don't use a light coat you risk having cakey concealer (and no one looks good with cakey concealer on their face). Also, please remember that this is a corrector and should be followed up by using a concealer and powder or your liquid foundation and a powder -- this is not a stand alone product.
I absolutely ADORE this palette and my suggestion is that if you are in the market for a good concealer, try this corrector palette and pair it with a good cheap concealer and you will be set. Also, if you use or are intending to purchase the MUFE 5 Camouflage Cream Palette, I would suggest you try this corrector palette first (or instead) for it's less expensive, has a lighter texture and is easier to blend than the correctors is the MUFE palette. I can not say this enough about this is AWESOME product and I feel so blessed to have discovered it and I hope this review helps others to “discover" this HG product as well.
NOTE ADDED ON 1/25/2010, after 6+ months of daily use, my love and appreciation for this palette has grown exponentially. FYI, if you run out a specific corrector in this HG palette (personally, I use the Blue Neutralizer and Deep Red & Purple Concealer the most), they are available in .25 oz jars for $7.99 sold exclusively at Graftobian's website (www.graftobian.com) or Paint and Powder Cosmetics (www.paintandpowderstore.com).
