Since one of my favorite articles was on my Seint (formerly Maskcara) review, I thought I would introduce you to their newest product.
I do not work for Seint makeup, nor am I an Artist (rep) for them. I wanted to give you a little bit of background on the concept of how DemiColour works, as it can be a bit confusing if you’re seeing it for the first time and aren’t heavily into makeup.
What Is Demi Colour by Seint?
This makeup line is touted as a sort of “no-makeup makeup” look. Where you’re wearing makeup but it looks natural and fresh on your face without cakiness and generally only spot correction.
I will say, I haven’t tested this makeup yet to see if it delivers well. It only came out about a week ago or so. However, the packaging is different than what most makeup brands offer, but the concept is a long-held makeup trick.
With Demi Colour, you will buy a pallete/package that includes a number of individual tins that stick to a magnetic pallete. It’s similar to the original Seint items, but the tins are smaller, and for now, you can’t buy a lot of individual tins, they mostly only come in collections. You can see them here.
The tins appear to be cream like the prior Seint products, which is good for coverage and blemishes.
How Does DemiColour Work?
Demi Color uses the longstanding makeup trick that one color applied to an undesired color on the face will balance out that color, neutralize it, and therefore essentially hide the discoloration.
These are called complementary colors, and they are the color opposite each other on the color wheel. ROYGBIV and all that.
For instance, if you have redness like I do, or you get a reddish-pinkish blemish, you will want to even your skintone out by using a color in the greenish family.
If you get blue circles under your eyes, you will want an offset from the orange family. I have actually seen beauty gurus recommend using orange lipstick instead of concealer for under-eye discoloration.
I made this handy chart for you to figure out what general color family you will need to offset any colors that you wish to hide on your face:
As I said, this concept is not new in the makeup world. However, I am unsure as to how many brands have offered this type of makeup before.
How Much Is Demi Colour?
Currently, you can only get collections of 18 tins with three brushes for $430 or 6 tins in the same general color family for $110.
I am still undecided as to whether I would invest money in this at this point. Mostly because, I think you will find you’ll only need/prefer 2-3 colors, and $430 is a lot.
However, demand for this brand is high, so maybe their general customers are willing to spend that much.
You will probably want to try a few shades of orange, and a few shades of green, however, I can’t really tell how they decided to put the 18-tin collections together. There’s not a lot of info on the website either, so I would recommend you speak to your Artist about it.
$110 for 6 small tins of the same color family seems like a lot to me, and their website says they will last about 6-12 months, but I’d feel like it would be a waste to only have 1-2 favorites.
Demi Colour Application
For now, you will have to refer to Cara herself in her tutorials on instagram or whatever influencer, or have your Artist come try it on you.
I know the demand for this will be huge because of the sheer number of influencers in Seint’s ranks. However, I personally can’t quite wrap my head around how this is better than a few color correctors I could find at the drug store, Amazon, or a specialty beauty shop.
It seems to me like painting each individual blemish and problem area would take a long time. However, beauty influencers often do take a while, as Youtube tutorials would reveal.
But, I’d personally rather find a quick BB or CC cream if I wanted a little bit of help – I generally don’t fool with color correction too much, as it really doesn’t seem to benefit me enough to make the extra time investment worth the results. I am who I am.
Nevertheless, I am considering testing this brand out just so I can do a proper review. I just wanted to give you some background information on it, as I know it can be a bit confusing.
Would you like to see me try this new Demi Colour and do a review? Have you tried it? What are your thoughts? Please leave me a comment below and let me know what you think. As always, God bless, and thanks for reading!
