OMG, this is fabulous!!!
But don't believe the Bobbi Brown codex of using concealer/corrector 2 shades lighter than your skin tone, instead match your skin tone as best you can w/ this corrector, maybe even let it be a bit dark to look at in the tub, because when you blend it w/ a damp sponge it will seem lighter.
I am pretty fair and use a light/medium bisque when I am winter pale, and I almost didn't recognize myself when I applied it the first time. Dark circles GONE!!!
This will never leave me, I may try out the Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer which is pink/peach toned as well though. The pink/peach tone is the key to make the under-eye circles disappear, yellow doesn't work as well.
Expensive but a total life-saver!
UPDATE: this really stays put all day until you remove it. I use a tiny amount of translucent powder to set it and then it's just stuck to my skin until I clean it off. Good stuff!
I love love love BB corrector in Light Bisque. It's a light pink concealer that takes care of my dark blue/purple inner and outer corners. I don't feel the need to layer a concealer on top of the corrector. I'm so fair - all I need it the corrector.
If you had asked me a year ago about correctors I would have said they are overrated. But that's because I was matched for the wrong one - Porcelain Bisque - which is practically white/pink and just did not blend as seemlessly into the skin.
You have to set the concealer with a powder in order to have it last all day - I hate BB's powders - I love Laura Mercier's Translucent Loose Powder - and that's what I use to set the corrector. I apply the corrector with my finger - to warm up the product - as will any undereye product - they always look best when you use an eye cream first. I use my mac 188 brush to set with powder - it seems to help never leave a powdery look.
This product went from being non-existant in my life to being an ABSOLUTE STAPLE! It's the best corrector/concealer I've ever use -- hands down! It works as both (in my opinion), and it's well worth the price. You use a small amount and it works miracles! I don't think anything else compares to this. I'm a huge BB advocate as it is, but I could literally get fisted in the eye and rely on this product to guide me through the day! :)
This product is GOOOOOD, ive had it for a lonnng time now, even though it looks tiny, you do not need to use much :).
I have oily/combination olive skin and i use the Peach Corrector, use it with a brush or your fingers, you do not need to buy the powder they offer with it, you can simply use any other pressed powder of your own.
its great, but do not use too much as it will end up looking too cakey and will form lines, but apart from that, it does what its made to do!! xx
I am plagued with allergy shiners nearly year-round but mostly in the spring. This corrector is a big help. First I use squalane on the undereye area, let it get absorbed, then I put on some eyebright, let that product get absorbed, smooth it out, and then pat on a bit of the corrector. I use this product sometimes without the concealer because it so perfectly matches my skin tone (her new shade, light to medium bisque). I had used up the bisque corrector and so this little compact is my second one. Her colors for concealers and correctors are fantastic and blend very well with my MAC NC25 skin. Wish she would get a clue on the pink tones in skin instead of denying they exist.
Anyway, unless I want pity from family members and go without the eyebright/corrector/sometimes concealer, I use these three products every day with a base of a drop of squalane. No lines, no wrinkles, no cracking, no drying up. This setup works great for me. The price is reasonable and I use one small compact in about 10 months, so the cost is very tolerable.
A Bobbi Brown makeup artist at Myer Sydney tested a combination of this corrector in Porcelain Bisque plus the creamy concealer in Ivory over the top on my blue/purple undereye circles. Unfortunately this combo just looked too white and cakey on my skin - and sadly I could still see my circles poking through. It made me look worse than when I'd started. I'm intending to go back to that counter, because the makeup artist was so nice and helpful, but unfortunately this product did not work for my fair skin. (For reference, products like Dior Skinflash seem to work better on my type of undereye circles).
This is the best thing for dark under eye circles but it can look horrible if used incorrectly. I am aware that it is intended to be used under concealer but i use this alone and get great results. It can look too cakey when used in combination with a concealer.
1st: make sure you get the correct color. Go to an experienced bobbi brown makeup artist. If anyone is near Aventura mall in miami florida go to Matt at the BB counter in Nordstroms. He is wonderful, the best matcher i have ever experienced and i am a woman of color so that is saying ALOT because most makeup artist end up making me look darker. I have had a bobbi brown rep match me as "warm walnut" which is three shades darker than my true match "golden".
2nd: make sure you use a very rich under eye cream just prior to application. I use bobbi brown's hydrating eye cream but my mom uses something from la mer. i don't think it really matters as long as your eye cream is extremely moisturizing.
3rd: use a teeny tiny amount of product, it is very concentrated and you only need a bit to cover any darkness. I will try and attach a pic to give you an idea of how much product i use. basically i use bobbi brown's lip brush because i find the concealer brush picks up too much product. I only dap the very end on the lip brush in the corrector and that is enough for one eye sometimes two depending on how much sleep i got the night before.
The product could be a bit more sanitary but nevertheless I absolutely adore this corrector.
After getting the hang of applying it, this product really does cover up those dark circles. I use my Essence of Beauty concealer/foundation duo brush. I swipe a little under my eyes with the concealer side and then blend it with the foundation side using a PATTING motion. That's the key. If you brush it on, it will look cakey, so make sure to pat. Set it with a powder and you'll be set for the day.
For lighter days, I use this and then a loose powder foundation for a more natural look.
I have severe dark brown circles under my eyes, and im waiting for that miracle corrector/conclealor. However i feel it is a lost cause and starting to give up. I find that a concealor either comes off fast, looks cakey or does nothing. Im only 17 so these dark cirlces are really ugly ugly on meeee argh
I’ve spent a fortune trying conceal the dark circles under my eyes. They’re pretty bad…not the worst, but bad enough. I’ve tried nearly every type of corrector and concealer on the market (some with reasonable success). I had settled on one particular brand, and then Bobbi Brown came on QVC. Their beauty boards had always raved about her corrector/concealer, but having never tried it…I though it was just another product with a lot of hype. They offered a face palette (which contains small sizes of the corrector, concealor, foundation stick and sheer finish pressed powder), and the minute I used the corrector in Light Bisque…my shadows disappeared. When I'm in a hurry...I use this all by itself, but if I really want to punch it up...I use BB's concealor (Ivory in the winter...Cool Sand in the summer)(Continued under Creamy Concealer Kit…”Bright Eyes at Last!”)
