BB's Corrector is a product that works very well to correct & conceal under eye circles as well as brighten the under eye area (in a very natural way). I have a love/hate relationship w/ this product because it doesn't always work for me. Some days it disappears too quickly (I do always set it w/ LM Brightening or LM Translucent powder) and on other days it drys my under eye area to a cakey mess. Once in a blue moon it's fantastic & brightens, conceals and sets to a realistic finish that last all day & doesn't get dry & flakey. I don't even need a concealer over it (btw, I DON'T recommend BB's Concealers over the Correctors-too creamy & seem to ruin any correcting that the Corrector achives). I believe that the issues I encounter w/ this product have everything to do w/ the condition of the skin under my eyes. My under-eye area tends to be dry thus the flaking and if I use extra moisturizer in this area that lessons the staying-power of the product. So for me, it's a balancing act to get it to stay put & not flake which is why I am only giving it 3 stars. I do think it's worth giving a try if your main issue is under eye circles. It does conceal & brighten very well. Finding the correct color is crucial. I am an NC 20-25 in MAC, O20 in Shishedo & CDP Ivory or Beige & I have found that BB Corrector shade in Light Peach works best for me to conceal my bluish-purple under eye circles. **Some tips re: finding the best color: I am always steered towards the pinky, bisque colors by the BB MA's. I have tried 4-5 different colors in both the peach & bisque shades. I do NOT look good in the bisque shades. They turn my skin an odd greyish color. I am an NC20-25, light skin w/ pale yellow undertones but also have Rosacea so have pink cheeks. BB MA's take 1 look at me & see pink cheeks & light skin & steer me towards the bisqued-colored shades. They are trained this way. When BB MA's are taught how to use BB Correctors, they are told that only darker,olive skin-tones should use the peach-toned Correctors. It's not true. I look best in Light Peach as do many others w/ my coloring. My circles are bluish-purple so it makes sense that bisque doesn't correct them much. As far as Correctors are concerned, it matters what color your under eye circles are. That's where I think BB MA's need to be educated-pinkish, bisque color cancels out brown & peach colors cancel out blue/purple. I actually had to have BB MA apply Light Bisque under 1 eye & Light Peach under the other eye to convince her that Light Peach worked better on me. She agreed that Light Bisque didn't work well at all & admitted that she was very surprised because it went against everything she was taught. My advice to you, especially if you are fair-light skinned, is to try out many of the shades in both the pinkish & peachish colors. Get samples, if possible, or just have BB MA apply a different shade under each eye. * Overall, BB Correctors are an excellent product if you can find your perfect match & if the skin under your eyes is not prone to dryness. continued >>
This is my favorite Bobbi Bronw product! It works great with the Concealer Kit (Creamy Concealer and Pressed Powder). I've never used Corrector or Concealer before, I always thought I don't need that kind of stuff... But when I had a Make Up lesson by the Bobbi Brown Corner in Switzerland, I couldn't believe how great it looks! Now I would never leave the house without it.
I have this annoying redness around my nose, it always looks like I was wearing glassing the whole day and took it off in this second. So i tried many products or fundations with extremly opacity (sorry I hope its the right word in english) and nothing stayed long enough during the day. I've also tried some redness solution products (powder, cremes...) but the redness always shine through. Often people asked me what happend around my nose or why I'm so red... and this was sometimes really embarrassing!
So I tried to use the Corrector (and Concealer) in this area and I'm absolutely delighted! My redness vanishes, my eyes look much brighter and I feel secure during the day.
I have this in Peach. I am an NC30 but the area under my eyes are too dark and for many years, I can't find the right concealer for them. I already tried A LOT including MAC and Cinema Secrets until I went to Bobbi Brown and wow, this worked on me. It doesn't totally eradicate the darkness but it really worked wonders. Only downside is the fact that I have a crease under both my eyes so some of it accumulates in that area but it's cool as I think ALL products are quite like that on me and I don't think it's correctable unless my creases leave ;-).
To add up, recently I started to use the Bobbi Brown Tinted Highlighter in peach as well before I apply this corrector on the really dark areas of my under-eyes as recommended by Bobbi Brown's makeup consultant. Waaaaaay better!
I have very dark circles under my eyes and have spent thousands over the years searching for the perfect cover up product without being too heavy that it sits in lines etc. I have bobbi brown concealer and corrector but I love this way more than the concealer, it has a yellow base as with all bobbi brown products which counteracts the blue/purplish colour that is a problem under my eyes. It has great coverage without caking and does not dry too quick that it cant be manipulated and blended. Love this and use it all over my face as a concealer. Will definitely keep buying and a small pot will last you forever. Well at least 6 months!
Really wanted to love this. Found it too gummy and sticky for my undereyes (or anywhere else). Color match was fine, but this didn't go on smoothly under my eyes and definitely looked more than cakey with a setting powder. Even without the setting powder it just looked thick no matter how little I put on and this creased without a setting powder so nothing worked for me with this product. Gave it so many tries and wanted to love it.
I get eczema on my eyelids and around my eyes so moisture is very important in a corrector/concealer for my under eyes. The texture is very creamy and the staying power, coverage, and overall quality is par none. I will continue to use and repurchase this.
I have an allergy. So dark circles always be my big problem, but not anymore. This product changes my life. The texture is so smooth and it's so creamy. It covers dark circles very nicely. This might not be necessary if you don't have very dark circles.
I have gone through 3 Bobbi Brown correctors over these past few years..HOWEVER...I have been on a search for something better, something more long-lasting and something that doesn't settle into fine lines. I am NC15 (really pale with warm undertones) and I bought this in Light Bisque which is perfect. It makes a crazy difference when you first apply it!
I didn't much like the Bobbi Brown concealer (my match was the colour Warm Ivory) because it was too thick. I used instead the BB corrector with Mac's Studio Finish concealer in NC15, and I used the BB yellow setting powder on top. It never lasted half the day, and it creased like crazy. So a Mac SA proposed I use a Mac eye paint for my under eye area, so I bought "Soft Ocre' which is a bit of a dark yellow for my skin, but it definitely corrects, and with the studio finish concealer on top it's a winner. I love Bobbi Brown products, I use their whole skincare range which I LOVE, but I just can't win with this corrector. :(
Best corrector by far. Amazing coverage, lasts all day.
I have always suffered from very dark under eye circles which have got a lot worse recently! Even though I was using macs studio fix concealer (nc42) i still needed more to fully reduce the dark circles. After reading reviews on the corrector I decided to get colour matched and was matched with peach. I love it!
Great colour match for all skin tones.
Full coverage (could be used by itself without concealer if your circles aren't too bad)
Works well with mac studio fix concealer (can't comment on other brands)
Really reduces the appearance of the circles! My bad circles are still slightly visible but have been reduced a great deal with this product.
Packaging includes a mirror for easy top up on the go.
Can look a bit cakey, need to really moisturise eye area before application.
Sinks into fine lines.
Staying power isn't too long.
