Two color corrector palettes, each containing the same eight shades: pink, lavender, green, putty-yellow, peach, white, cream, and orange-brown. (Yes, I take exception with some of their shade-names.) They look identical. So why the price difference?
The packaging is certainly different. The ingredients also differ. And, overall, the colors in the Ultra Base (dark packaging) appear to have a slightly brighter base, which could cause the color corrected areas to look ashy on deeper fair-to-medium skintones. These palettes won’t necessarily color correct well for the deepest skintones because all of the colors, even the “brown”, are pretty light. Color correcting works differently on fair skin than on deep. You’re not only looking to balance out different colors, but you need to balance to a different base.)
The colors in the Ulta Base palette seem to be on a whiter base, and don’t apply/spread as easily, as the colors in the Camoflage (the more expensive) palette. If you have very pale skin you can probably use either palette, and save yourself $5. I personally prefer to pay the extra money for color that isn’t additionally whitened, and that applies more easily. You can see the difference in each shade. The White color has the least amount of difference (obviously), followed by the Cream.
I prefer liquid to cream color correctors; but the Camoflage palette has been a good alternative for me.
