I picked this up and I'm so happy that I did. The concealer that I had been using before, while highly pigmented, was rather dry for my under eye area. So I decided to venture into the realm of high end cosmetics, and had heard wonderful things about this corrector. I picked this up in Porcelain Peach, and while it is a bit light on me, I have fallen in love with it. I've had it for over a month now and I can see that despite the small amount, it is definitely going to last me a while. It stays put all day, has good pigmentation, and has a perfect demi-matte finish to it. I have had minimal creasing (and that is because I'm prone to it). If you're on the fence, try it.
This is one of the best products I've used for my horrendous dark eye circles. It blends perfectly and corrects my greenish purple discolouration perfectly. However, it does not last the entire office day. By mid day after coming back from lunch, it would have oxidized. I need to remove it and re-apply it otherwise people start asking what is that patch? It also settles into the irritating one fine line I have under each eye and so I have two nice pale lines reaching down after a few hours. I tried using it with the fine powder that sometimes is sold together with the corrector (the kit) but it only accentuates the problem. Until I find the perfect concealor (with a perfect price), this will still be my go-to for now.
I've purchased many products for dark circles and typically end up disappointed. Bobbi Brown's Corrector has not disappointed at all. I have a medium/light skin tone and use the Light Peach color. I apply eye cream first. Then I use a concealer brush to tap on the corrector in the corners of the eye, under the eye right up to the lower eyelash line. Only a very little is needed on the brush. It applies perfectly without being thick, gloppy or settling into fine lines. Because I apply it over eye cream, it glides and blends easily with the brush. It gives a nice brightness to the eye area and really does reduce the appearance of the dark circles. I don't even need to use a concealer with this product, although if I am going to be photographed I will apply concealer and a very light dusting of yellow powder. The product does last for hours. I sometimes add a little eye cream over the concealer if I feel I need to refresh it.
The container is small, black well made plastic, easy to open and close.
I have this corrector in light bisque.It is a very light pink color.I apply this to my dark circles before foundation and then again after foundation as I have serious dark circles.I apply light amounts,as if I apply to much my under eyes can look a bit to pinky and cakey and it looks unnatural. I apply my MAC studio finish concealer in nw20 on top. I am very happy with this. I finally found a method that works best for me. Now the method I use doesn't cover the circles completely but nothing ever will and I'm learning to accept that.This neutralizes the purple/blue in my under eye circles and adds some coverage.It has a creamy texture but not so creamy that its greasy. I could never leave the house with just this on though as its to pink. I originally tried this in light peach and really did not like it but I now see it was due to the wrong color match.So getting matched with the right color really makes a difference.I will absolutely keep going back to this.
I love this corrector! Did I mention I love it?!
For reference: I'm NC35 and I use the color PEACH. <3
I use this corrector as a concealer base. Its perfect. if you have any dark circles or purple/greenish hues under your eyes, this will instantly cover and counterbalance the discoloration. I have dark circles, and it looks purple some mornings. After I moisturize my eyes, I apply this corrector and voila! The purple hue is gone! My undereyes seem brighter and just overall more awake. I use this every morning. If I am not doing the whole makeup routine, I will just dab a little of this stuff under my eyes and I'm good to go. But as a concealer base, its truly fantastic. No cakiness and concealer will go on very smooth and even.
This corrector comes in a little black pot with an enclosed mirror. I know some people don't like dipping their fingers in the pot and find it unhygienic but, really, the warmth from your fingers will make this product glide perfectly under your eyes. I simply tap underneathe my eyes and its set. Don't rub, just light taps.
It's not the cheapest but in the long run, it's totally worth it IMO. I bought my corrector almost two years ago and I still have a lot left. You really dont need to use too much. All in all, I love this product. if you want to hide/correct those dark circles, I would give this a try.
I keep coming back to this hoping it will be better, but always feel a bit disappointed after. This has nice coverage and do balance out my dark circles but is very thick for applying under the eyes and always ends up caking on me. If I've had an especially late night I still use it, but not the glowing brightening effect I would have hoped for.
This is so great for everyday. If you've had too much to drink the night before, or if you've cried a lot or got punched or something, it won't do the job, but for most days, it's good. I drink a couple of drinks a night, so I suppose I should look dehydrated or whatever, but I don't with this.
I have really dark circles from bad sleep habits. I use this corrector as a base and since it has a salmon base color, I need to go over with a separate concealer that is better matches my skin tone. This product is creamy and does a good job at hiding the blue tones from the undereye circle. My only grip is that on cold mornings, it takes a bit of work to warm up the product before applying or else it can tug at the skin which is very bad!
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.
