I love this corrector for my under eye circles. I have very hyper-pigmented eyes and I have dark circles -I tired this corrector and at first I wasn't sure if there was a difference -you get so used to seeing yourself one way. The corrector by itself helped but didn't get rid of them. Then I came home and took it off and I was amazed at how much worse my eyes looked -I looked so tired!! That was when I realized how much it helped and yet how well it blended in.
It does settle a bit, so I am sure to prime before and set it after.
I apply with a prescriptives synthetic concealer brush.
Will buy again for sure!
My under-eye circles are absolutely gone when I apply Light Peach as the corrector with a synthetic brush just where the darkness is, work it in with my fingers, and Warm beige concealer more generously over it, and blend both with my fingers. I can get away with this without foundation or tinted moisturizer when I am still winter-pale. The creamy formula of both is amazing in my opinion. They really work!! Will definitely re-purchase.
I wanted to love this so badly because I've heard such good things about it, but for me its just doesn't work. I've tried light peach and light bisque (I'm NW20) and neither knocked out my dark circles, not even close. Both colours made my under eye area darker or too orange or too pink. I've used them under sand and cool sand concealer and in every combination it didn't work. I was really disappointed and wont repurchase.
I have tried, tried, and tried to use this product for about a year now. I think the color range and the ability to correct is just marvelous however for me, the new formula is WAY to creamy for me. I am only 20, however I naturally have crease folds under my eyes and this product emphasizes them like no other. I have tried all of the tricks in the book, invested in expensive eye creams, setting powder, but this just will never work for me.
Also, I find this to be VERY pricey for the minuscule amount that you actually get. I wish I could love this because it does such a great job at CORRECTING, but I hate the new formula.
Did not work for me at all - I got this in peach as suggested by the MA and also got the concealer. Neither product has worked well.
This concealer is VERY expensive for the little amount of product that you get. It does not apply well and is dry and cakey when applied. Not impressed at all with this and if i cannot return it will be throwing it away since it is useless and does not correct my under eye circles even though they are not very dark at all and I get better coverage from Estee Lauder Double Matte Foundation dotted under my eyes!
In my opinion, there is nothing better for discoloration and under-eye circles than Bobbi Brown Corrector. I use the shade Porcelain Bisque, which perfectly counters the darkness under my eyes and makes me look bright-eyed instantly. I often don't feel like I need any concealer if I use this. It goes on very smooth and blends seamlessly, so you can barely tell it's there. It also stays all day without much hassle. It is expensive, but it lasts a long time and I don't really mind the price because of the miracles you can work with this stuff. Highly recommend.
Went to sephora to buy a concealer for my hyperpigmentation, but one of the MUA at Sephora said I would need a corrector. No offense, but I'm bias like many when it comes certain MUA picking my makeup and I only lean to the black MUA because they know my color and what works. But the lady picked dark bisque and right off the bat and I said I thought Dark Peach would work the best since my skin undertones were similar. She gave me both samples though because I kept protesting.
Went home tried on her recommendation and it made my hypigmentation look exaggerated, made it look ashy and grey. Wiped it off and tried Dark Peach and Ta-DA! So now I can wear this and my Boi-iog in medium dark and it looks so clean! You can not see my dark spots! and It's taken me forever to find products that work well and match my skintone.
This allergy season has left me with the worst under-eye circles I have ever had, especially under my left eye for some weird reason. And it has been depressing. So I decided to try this. I got Peach, and I am a NW-30-NW35. It works amazingly well. I apply it, blend it, put my regular concealer over it (Dream Lumi currently for under-eye) and set it with a bit of powder and it looks like I don't have any under-eye circles at all. It will crease if not set with powder and it can look pretty cakey and dry of you do not moisturize. Also I believe a color match is key as well and there are a lot of shades to choose from. With all of that in mind this can be a great product for those in need of it. I will buy again.
I've had this product for a year now. I have to say that it has worked for my dark circles using both corrector and concealer. When I use the concealer by it self after 3 hours you can start noticing my dark circles. It is creamy and easy to blend. I use my ring finger, I find that it creases less than with the concealer brush. It does crease on me a bit but I run my finger again and it's done for the rest of the day. I really like these product.
Ok, this stuff is good. To give you an idea of how good, I left the house to go to the mall to buy this and I was already wearing foundation, eyeliner, mascara and blusher. I don't like talking in terms of "male attention" but I have to illustrate just how effective this stuff is... When I left I think I got a few looks, a fair few men - I wasn't really paying much attention because I had no real reason to. What DID catch my attention was the reaction after I put on the corrector. All the MA did was put the corrector under my eyes (Deep Bisque, and I think I'm an NC50 for reference) and I set it by going to the Laura Mercier counter and putting on some Secret Brightening Powder. Suddenly, walking around the same mall, almost every eye was on me. I mean it, I'm not exaggerating, I don't think I have ever had so much attention in all the time I've lived here. It was like a flip was switched.
So let me reinstate what this corrector did: I went to the counter under the radar, more or less unnoticed, to ONLY putting on this corrector - the only change to my face - and entering back into the EXACT same busy mall with almost every eye on me (and can I say, some of them very handsome eyes!) It would be honestly be hard to get a purer study of the power of this corrector!!
However, you might say that a confounding factor is that this reaction may just be the effects of a concealer in general, not necessarily the effect of this one. That could be true, but on other visits in the past when leaving this mall with the BB concealer (not the corrector) or trying the YSL Touche Eclat, I did not experience anything like this - not anything even remotely close. So I think I can safely conclude this is by far the best concealer I have ever tried and it makes a real, real difference.
This stuff works because its peachy coloured so it cancels out your dark circles and brightens the area, which is better than most concealers which just put skin colour on top of dark colour, like trying to put colour on top of black with wax crayons - it just doesn't cover it.
Some all important tips! : I learned from a makeup artist on youtube that to stop concealer creasing so much, instead of putting loads of eye cream underneath (which will just make it easier for the concealer to settle in your creases), you use an eye primer where you will put your concealer, pat it in and let it absorb. Just like it stops your eyeshadow creasing, it will stop your concealer creasing! Apply the concealer. Press lightly with a tissue (will remove excess oils but not the pigment) and set very lightly with powder. It works!!!
