A little late on this but have you checked out MAC's Color Correcting line yet ? If you're not too familiar with color correcting skin products , you might find yourself asking , exactly what do I use them for ?
These CC Creams and powders help to correct and even skin tones basically. They can tone down redness or brighten dull skin among others. It's a subtle thing and they are not going to suddenly make you look like you have magazine perfect skin. But they definitely polish up skin, set makeup well and add a little oomph to your skin, making it and you look just a little better . It's good wakeup makeup.
My favorite of the group shade wise is yellow Neutralize .Yellow powder is something I've used for a long time off and on. Yellow powder not only can perk up winter dull skin but it also cancels redness. It doesn't change the color of your makeup or add color to skin that's visible .
I love the CC and the loose powders best. The solid powder I found a little too thick for lack of a better word. It's nice but just not as light feeling on as I'd like it to be. The CC Cream here is lightweight with just a touch of moisture , has SPF 30 and will act as a primer under makeup or can be worn on it's own .
If you want to explore the other shades, Illuminate ( lavender) is the most brightening and gives skin a bit of a non shimmer translucent glow. Adjust is a great shade to bring some warmth to dull skin as it has a just a little color to it and Recharge is the shade deeper skins might want to look at for an overall warmth as well as perfecting, as it will add color to the face on anyone pale . This shade could also be used for contour.
