I bought both the corrector (in Light Bisque) and the concealer (in Sand) on line but I found the concealer to be a tad too dark even though my foundation shade is Warm Sand. Next time I will go for either Warm Ivory or Cool Sand.
Both products have got the same formulation (identical ingredients) so I do not see the point in buying both, you just have to find the right shade for you in either the Corrector or the Concealer and that will do. The only difference in my opinion is that the Corrector, with its pinkish or peachy tones, has got more of a brightening effect, whereas the concealer with its more natural tones has got more of a concealing effect. If I blend them toghether I simply end up changing the shade of the concealer but as I said if you get the right shade in one or the other product you do not need to own both. Texture wise they are both creamy but they tend to crease a bit and you need to experiment with a moisturizer underneath.
This is an okay product. I didn't feel like it provided enough coverage. My blemishes and redness was showing through the concealer. It was fairly creamy and medium coverage. Reccomend it if you don't have that much to cover. But I did return it for too faced absolutely flawless concealer. Much better. Both ideal for dry skin. BB doesn't look cakey at the end of the day.
This is a decent concealer. I bought it for under my eyes. It does work well, but maybe I haven't used enough powder. It causes my mascara to run a bit. The color is good and it does conceal.
I bought this (at a CCO) to cover the red patches on my face and at my upper hairline. Although I am cool-toned (NW20 in MAC Studio Fix Fluid), I bought this in Sand, which has a decidedly yellow cast. It works perfectly. The yellow neutralizes the red patches and leaves my skin looking natural. (Some products that neutralize redness leave you with a gray, inhuman look.) I use a tiny, stiff E.L.F. brush to pick up a tiny amount of the cream (a little bit goes a long way) and pat it on the red area, then I blend with my fingers. Presto, no more redness.
I haven't found a use for the powder, which has a shimmer to it. The packaging is fine for the cream concealer but awkward for the powder, because the flip top needs a good bit of pulling to get it up, and that inevitably results in powder flying out--wasteful and messy. Most loose powders come with a top that unscrews. It would have been far better if Bobbi Brown had been able to split this into two pieces, one for the powder and another that combined a screwtop and the cream concealer, but I suppose that would have been too expensive. Since I don't use the powder it doesn't bother me, but others may find it a drawback. There is also a mirror under the top cap.
Although it is expensive, you need very little of the cream, so it will last a long time. So, for the purpose for which I use it--I can't speak about other uses--it's an excellent product and a five-star.
If your skin tends to get dry around the eye area this is a good concealer. It moisturizes and covers up well. blends easily. This is my hg concealer for the winter.
It makes my eye make up run, and my foundation cake during the summer in 100% humidity in nyc.
I wish there was a maybe for repurchase. I love it when I can get it right and I downright LOATHE it when its wrong. I've found that I only need the tiniest touch over the bisque corrector. Too much and it sinks into your lines. And moisturize! Also, with how creamy it is, you may feel like you need a lot of powder to set it but you really just need a little. I also found that it doesn't agree with mineral makeup (I've been using everyday minerals). I actually did a test the other day and like I just said, the Concealer looked terrible with my EDM, but when I used it with BBs skin foundation, it looked amazing. I've hit pan with mine and want to try some others before I make up my mind.
In my search for a non-chemically loaded concealer it came down to this, Korres, LM or Tarte. The best coverage I got came from Warm Ivory, but I sort of felt I was getting a reverse raccoon eye effect (it was making my undereyes look creepy shiny and bright).
I absolutely love this product for hiding my dark circles! HG!
It is important to put a moisturizing eye cream before application or else the concealer will bring out dry lines beneath your eyes. For that, I use Origins Eye Doctor.
I bought this concealer after hearing great reviews about it from my best friend! I found that it was too thin and barely covered anything that needed covering! The only thing I liked about this product was that it was light and it seemed as though it reflected light which was nice for under eye coverage. But still too light for my NC25-30 complexion. I'm very disappointed in this product.
My HG concealer! The first time I tried it I was amazed. I have quite obvious dark circles and it has always bothered me, I have searched and searched for the perfect concealer for years and have always been let down until I found this one.
I use the lightest shade, porcelain. It is an actual godsend. I opted for not getting the concealer with the powder as my Chanel powder does the job just fine.
Excellent product, would definitely recommend!
