I was introduced to this at the counter and was told i had to use it together with the creamy concealer. My initial thought is why would the product be so inefficient that i had to spend money on two types of concealors? That didnt make sense and thus I first began only with the corrector in Bisque.
Im a NC20 but my undereyes areas have been red-purplish for the longest time since childhood. None of the eye creams i used have helped unless i do masking. Hence the reliance on a concealor. Despite the hype, awards etc, Bisque did lighten my undereyes area a fair bit but i still looked drained. So i went out and bought creamy concealor in Beige.
Bisque is reddish while Beige is yellowish. I suppose Im not matched correctly because i could still see my circles. But the real horror is when the combi creases on me and this is despite already topping off with loose powder and using a rich eye cream and eye sunscreen underneath. Its embarrasing when my guy friends pointed out that I have lines under my eyes. continued >>
This does help with under circles, you do have to put quite a bit on to notice a difference.. for me it lasts about 3-4 hours until i have to re- apply. I do love this though and my mum says she couldn't live without this! it really brightens her eyes up! The concealer though doesn't last very much at all and it is so overpriced..
I bought it in peach as SA suggested. It was a perfect match, and STILL it doesn't do anything for me, which was surprising since I don't have bad undereye circles.
You also got very little product, so I consider it expensive.
for me, this is not smooth , looking cakey, hard to apply
color is not match that much... I don't like this ..
I prefer estee lauder conclear to this..
You really need to be accurately colour-matched in order for this to work properly to counteract any facial discolouration. I think the key is to be matched to one's facial discolouration rather than skin tone. I'm NC25 yellow undertones, and have tended to be matched to light bisque which is the standard match for my skin tone. Unfortunately, because the incorrect matches didn't do anything for my dark circles, I thought this product was overhyped. Now that I've been accurately matched to med-dark bisque, I can see what everyone is raving about. It does such an incredible job in counteracting my dark undereye circles and making me look so refreshed. I also use this around my nose, on any pigmentation marks, blemishes etc. In fact, although the colour is not the colour of my skin, I'm so pleasantly surprised to find that I can actually use it as and in place of a concealer. Most days, I don't even use a proper concealer over the top of this.
When I first started using this, it settled into the lines under my eyes badly no matter how I applied, blotted, powdered or primed. Fortunately, I no longer have the creasing issues as before, which I think may be due to having changed my combined sunscreen/primer, so I suppose you just have to find something that works for you. I'm also careful to not overapply and to tap away under my eye like crazy to blend and take away any excess and then powder lightly over the top. Bonus points also for the thoughtful inclusion of a mirror. I don't think enough brands, let alone expensive brands, incorporate something as small yet significant as mirrors into their products (e.g. MAC).
I just bought this and I am LOVING it! I could not find an eye cream to get rid of my dark circles so I broke down and bought Bobbi Brown's corrector and concealer. My dark circles are gone! The peach really counteracts the dark circles! It is so creamy and easily blendable that I think I'll repurchase forever. I put it on in the morning and I let it sit on my face for a bit to make sure it doesn't crease (it will usually have initial creasing but after you wipe that off it won't crease again) and it will last ALL DAY! I have oily skin so for me, that is really exciting! I only gave it four stars because I wish you got a bit more, $22 isn't cheap
I wanted this due to all the positive reviews and mentions on the makeup board. I went to a Blue Mercury to be shade tested though from the boards and reviews I figured I would be a Light Peach in this. The MA tried light bisque on me and it looked weirdly peachy. She ended up talking me into buying the Warm Ivory in the Creamy Concealer and passing on the corrector. However, when I tried the concealer at home, I still wasn't 100% happy with it (don't get me wrong, I like the concealer). Long story long(!) I ended up purchasing this in Light Peach online and have been loving it. Important to note is that I think applying it with a damp beauty blender makes a big difference! It just looks lighter, and more fresh. I apply the Garnier Under Eye circle roller ball under this, and then apply with a damp beauty blender. It still doesn't completely take away my undereye circle but its as close to it as I've found thus far. I use Nars Nico to set this. I haven't found the need to wear the concealer over this, as I think that looks to cakey.
This was as perfect color for me in light peach. I have light/medium skin, warm toned and NC25ish (wasnt quite right). I pat this on under my eye before my foundation to cancel out the blue of my under eye circles. I found that if I added another concealer like suggested, it would really crease up even worse and looked like too much product so I just apply the corrector, apply foundation, and set with powder.
I have laura mercier's secret brightening powder that helps set it but I still get creases under my eye. If I dont powder it quickly enough, it creases.
So I said I wouldnt repurchase because while the color match is great, it just creases too much on me especially now that we're getting to summer time. It works better in winter for me, but I live in a humid & hot area.
I have hit pan on this and it is very creamy- I pat it in with my ring finger because with a brush it just looked streaky.
This is very pricey in my opinion, but its totally worth the money. its the best under eye concealer ive tried & ive tried pretty much everything since my under eye circles are one of my biggest problems. The formulation is so creamy and blendable yet it covers everything perfectly. also i find that the color range is so perfect for under eyes. i only use this for my under eyes as all of the colors has a peach/pinky undertone which is great to cancel out the darkness for your under eyes. love this product! will keep repurchasing it over and over.
I had heard great things about Bobbi Brown's corrector so I decided to buy it. When it came in the mail I was shocked at how small it was. I know these products aren't very large but I expected it to be bigger. The packaging is nice as it has a little mirror, although too tiny to actually see your face. I want to add that I have this product for two weeks and only used it a few times. The product itself is just ok....not great, not bad. I have blueness in the inner corner of my eye and the corrector does take it away but not for a very long time. It certainly doesn't last all day. My big complaint though is the price vs the amount of product that you get. It cost me $22 for a very tiny amount .05oz to be exact. Like I said I have this product for 2 weeks and haven't used it much and already I hit pan. Bobbi come on!!!! Be a bit more generous with your products!! This product is a joke!! I know your products are extremely expensive so that is why I have been staying away from them but I figured I would give your corrector a try. Well I certainly won't be buying it again. I will stick with my NYX concealer in a jar that is a quarter of the price and gives you .25 oz.
Remember you don't always get what you pay for. If she gave more product I might have added a couple more lippies but I truly feel ripped off by Bobbi Brown
