I have genetic and allergic dark blue rings around my light, cool coloring. Allergy season worsens them,and,needless to say, I have tried almost every high-low end product out there over the years.
I am on my 2nd purchase of the Light Peach corrector.
Pros:blue cancelling,heavily pigmented coverage, bar none, the best I've tried so far. Looks best with the steps mentioned in other reviews: moisturizer,corrector, concealer or foundation applied over it, and set w/finishing powder.
(The concealer/corrector kit comes w/all but the moisturizer). I purchased the kit first in Porcelain, which was good, but the Light Peach corrector alone is even more effective.
Cons: Time, Time--you do need to allow for the multiple steps to achieve the best effect--
I don't count Price--If you are looking for something to work--as this does for me, Price is almost a non issue. Product lasts a long time- corrector lasts 8-10 months for me.
Also: for days when you want faster coverage--I use the corrector underneath either a foundation,or Maybelline's eye brightener, so the full corrector kit isn't always needed.
A definite re-purchase for the future.
I turned to this when I realised my concealers were just giving me grey/green undereyes no matter what I did. Now that I use the Bobbi Brown corrector (in Peach) beneath my usual concealer (IPSA), people have been telling me I look fresh even if I've only had a few hours of sleep, or they give me disbelieving looks when I tell them I have very dark eye rings.
After reading all the rave reviews about this for undereye concealing, I walked up to a Bobbi Brown counter at my nearest Holt Renfrew and asked the SA what shade I was so I could start using it to cover my dark circles/veins below my eyes. She sold me the Creamy Concealer Kit, at which I will also provide a review after this.
Even without the Creamy Concealer Kit, the corrector works so well by itself to brighten up my eyes. I use my fingers and dab a bit on my undereyes and voila, they look better than ever. The corrector does indeed correct the discoloration on my undereye area. I definitely see a difference before and after. This might just probably be my IT undereye corrector. Everybody should definitely give this a try and make sure you ask the SA what shade you are. If you opt to go for a different effect, you can always go lighter/darker depending on your needs. Such a great product. I absolutely love it and do not regret buying it because one lasts you a long time! Hope everybody has the same opinion about this awesome product.
I'm an NC25 and I use this in Light Peach. I have deep set eyes and bad dark circles that are a bit bluish/purple and this has saved me. I apply it with my ring finger dabbing it softly or with a Mac 224 on top of my foundation then put my Mac Studio Finish Concealer in NC30(I find that this shade complements the corrector more than NC25) on top of it and this combination makes my eyes look brighter but not to the point where I look like I have headlights on my eyes. My eyes just looks flattering, awake and I look healthy and not sick. I apply it in a triangular shape from the inner corner of my eye, to the base of my nose then back up to the outer corner of my eye then blend that whole area thoroughly. This lifts up my whole eye area. I only dab very little amount of both BB corrector and Mac concealer for it not to cake. Then pat and roll on a little pressed powder to seal it. It creases a little during the day but a little pat and blending smoothes it back. It takes practice and getting used to to make this process fast when you are in a hurry.
I have this in the shade Peach (I'm NC30-NC35). When I purchased this in Hong Kong, I was able to buy it without the concealer and just the corrector itself.
I really like this stuff!! It does such a good job at correcting my purple-blue eye bags that I can't go without this stuff on days where I have to look my best. Even though my concealer is super pigmented (MUFE Full Cover), it doesn't cover my eye bags completely. Not only does this corrector diminish the darkness, but it also minimizes the look of eye bags, giving me a lifted, bright under eye area!
It has a very creamy consistency, enough that I can easily spread this over my entire under eye area. However, despite it's consistency, it is not creamy to the point where it creases (PLUS!!!!). It stays put and lasts all night. To further enhance the longevity, I will powder my eye with a tiny amount of MUFE HD Microfinish Powder around the eye area.
The corrector itself is quite pigmented so that it can cover the purpleish-blue pigments in the eye. Because of this, I can't wear this corrector on its own.
I apply this with my ring finger as I feel that it gives the most coverage, and the warmth of my finger melts the product into the skin. However, the make up artist at the Bobbi Brown counter applied this with a synthetic concealer brush. I think either way, it still works fine.
The packaging consists of a small black compact (similar to a normal powder compact). When you open it up, the top part is a small mirror, and the bottom is the cream. I find that the packaging is very sleek and cute. The only downside is that this is not a squeeze-tube, which I would prefer due to hygienic reasons. I only use this product on myself and so I can just dig my finger into the pot, however I do make sure to wash my hands thoroughly before doing so to avoid contaminating the corrector with bacteria.
I forgot the price that I paid, but prices are the same regardless if you purchase it at a BB counter, or at Sephora etc. I think the price is a bit pricey considering I do not use this everyday and thus I don't get the full worth of the product. BUT...seeing the amazing transformation that it does to my eyes, the rich pigmentation of this, and the creamy yet creaseless consistency, I definitely feel that it is worth your money if you are looking for something that will help with your under eye bags. Because I do not require this product everyday for school and work, I save this for nights out, or for special occasions.
Overall, I really like this product. It does what it claims, giving me the illusion of no eye-bags. The consistency is amazing, the pigmentation is enough to cover my darkest under eye circles and so I will definitely continue purchasing this product. The only downside is the price.
I have been using this correct for over 6 months. The color covers my dark circle so perfectly and I donít need concealer to cover more. But here comes to my problem. They crease like 5 mins after I applied to my under eyes circle, and it settled in to my deep fine line. I tried BB's Hydrating eye cream and some others seem didnít help much. I used to powder my under eyes area and tried to set it. But it got worse. I tried lots of setting, loose powder settled into that deep line and make it look 10x worse. I tried to use my finger or brush to soft it up, but again, 5 mins later you will see the settled in to that line again! So i gave up and go out there and look for something won't settle in my fine line as easy as this product. I wish it work for me, because the color matched me perfectly and not much good peachy corrector out there for me to choose.
This product is a godsend. For years I have been looking for a Concealer for my under eye area, but it seemed like they were just very cakey by the time I'd covered my circles. I just wanted one product to completely take them away. I decided to test this after researching it online. I really didn't think I'd like it because a corrector before a Concealer just seemed like one step too many, but to my surprise it looked alright by itself (I use light bisque)! I do have to set it or my mascara will transfer. That said, I recommend this product highly. It does seem expensive ($25) for such a little amount, but it lasts. If you're still unsure go to Macy's or Sephora and try it. It is a truly wonderful product.
I love how this corrector transforms the eye so much. Clears up those dark circles from lack of sleep. Highly recommended with Bobbi Brown Hyrdating Eye Cream.
Excellant coverage. I definatly will buy it again, it works better than any other concealer I have ever used but it's WAY TOO EXPENSIVE! (if anyone can suggest a comparable product that is cheaper, please feel free to let me know
Not gonna lie, I have pretty bad dark circles. I'm a college student studying dental so you can imagine I don't always get the recommended amount of sleep haha. I used to use a Clinique liquid concealer which was nice but didn't last as long as I wanted. I went to a Bobbi Brown counter and decided to give this a shot. I must say I love this. The texture is kind of on the sticky side, similar to Mac Studio Sculpt but a bit smoother. No matter what shade you are it has a peachy pinky undertone to it which cancels out all the blue under the eyes. It really gives me that well rested look and brightens up my eye area. I find it's best applied with my ring finger. I have tried brushes but it doesn't work as well. Sometimes it goes into the fine lines under my eyes but if I use a good eye cream it's not as bad. The lasting power is great. The packaging is also nice. It's expensive but not too expensive. Mine was about 25 dollars with tax but I don't feel guilty about buying it. You don't have to use a lot to get a good result so it's gonna last me a long time. I would definitely recommend this to people that need more than just a concealer for their dark circles. My new Holy Grail product.
