I have what my doctor calls "allergy shiners," which means that I have dark circles under my eyes caused by allergies. I've had them since at least kindegarten. I am a bit of an expert on undereye concealers. Most girls get eyeshadow or lip gloss as their first cosmetic purchase. I ran out and bought concealer. So if you're looking for something to add a little extra oomph to a concealer, the BB Corrector is great. It is a very creamy product, so it works best with the BB concealer or other creamy, non-stick types of concealers. You have to be sure to set it with some base powder or it probably would smear, but a little powder is all you need for it to stay on beautifully. This product does an amazing job of neutralizing the dark circles and setting a nice base for the concealer itself. It is a shade lighter than the concealer, so don't expect to use it on its own. But for the allergy shiner gals, this is money very well spent.
texture : its sheer , smooth and natural
color : I v got pale skin, the color "Porcelain Peach " just matches me perfectly.
application : easy to spread with hand, its just so smooth that I can even use it on my cheeks or other imperfections without looking cakey.
Staying power : weak staying power. I am living in a dry climate country, I tried it during winter, and it wore off 1/2 hr after application. It is not ideal to use under humid climate.
Coverage : light coverge, I need to apply serveral layers to cover dark circle and acne scare. However, it melts quite quickly......so, I will not recommend it to those who got serious dark circle or with major imperfections.
I like this stuff! I use it as a concealer, not under a concealer. I switch between using this and Benefit's Erase Paste, which I find to be of similar consistency.
Applied with a brush, the coverage is very complete for me. I wear glasses and haven't had it rub off. That may be because I also set it with LG's Balance & Brighten.
All-in-all, I like it and would purchase it again.
Althoughh, I like the coverage and color this product offers for my dark circles, I am not too happy with the texture of it...it started creasing after 1 hour and made my water resistant eyeliner start running (it never runs)....and it is so creamy that when I wear my glasses it leaves a thick layer of makeup on it...I really am trying to like it....I bought it and will try using it with different concealers over it and see if that makes a difference!! If anyone has any recommendations please let know I will try it!!
This does not seem to be the miracle product on me as it is for other people. Maybe my expectations are too high. I've come to the conclusion that this is however as good as it gets. I've tried the Light Bisque, Porcelain Bisque and Porcelain Peach. The Bisque was pretty horrible, very dark pink on my fair skin. The Porcelain Bisque was very light but did have a brightening effect. At the moment I'm using the Porcelain Peach which looks very natural. Some shadow still shows through whether or not I apply concealer over the top. There is a significant difference in that my eyes do not look bruised, but this product (alone or with concealer) does not eradicate my circles completely. I suppose that nothing will. So overall it is a good product and I would recommend it.
I have pretty bad dark circles underneath my eyes that are pretty much genetic and as I have gotten older, I noticed that my previous concealer just wasn't working as well. I bought this in addition to bobbi brown's concealer (you are supposed to wear the corrector first followed by the concealer), and have to say that I haven't seen this great of coverage in a longggg time. It is awesome in that respect and I love that the concealer comes with the finishing powder. I think the only thing that I don't like is that after an hour or so you can start to see the make-up settling into the very small fine creases underneath the eye. To get rid of them, I just gently smudge the lines with my finger to blend them in, and the makeup still seems to stay in place. Otherwise a pretty good product.
EDIT: I notice that as the weather is getting warmer, this product seems pretty oily and slides off on my already oily skin (I tend to get more oily as the weather warms), so I will have to try using more of the finishing powder (that is with the concealer). I do find that I have to repeatedly blend in these lines throughout the day with the corrector alone and concealer alone...so that can be kind of a pain...I think I will continue my hunt.
EDIT 1/19/11: This is better suited for winter for me, but with a very light hand..I mean literally two circles around with one finger and gently blotted on the skin. Still pretty steep price though
This works really great on me. I have the peach corrector concealer and it covers the under eye circles nicely. Best I've used so far, regular concealers don't work the same way (for me).
I know there are so many awesome reviews for this corrector but for me,it just didn't cut it because I didn't like the formula. Did it cover my dark eye circles? Yes it did. But it also made the skin under my eyes feel really dry and I do use a hydrating eye cream which works very well. Also I didn't like the texture because it was too thick.Granted that if you wanna fully cover your eye circles,you'll need a thick cover-up, but I just hate heavy stuff on my face and eyes so I'll be sticking to lighter liquid concealers which can cover up just as well as this corrector can.
This is the BEST undereye concealer hands down! I've had dark circles for as long as i can remember, even as a kid, and I've been experimenting with concealers since I was 14, and about 12 years later I have finally found something that actually works and looks natural. I love this little concealer, its soo creamy and rich, it cover my circles completely. The BB counter woman matched me perfectly with "Bisque", it looked a bit too peachy in the pan but it covered my circles amazingly. She said I would be hooked on it, and I doubt it cause I'm always searching for something better, but I have to admit it she was right, Im in LOVE! Definitely worth its price!
I had this product tried on me by a cosmetics person in the BB dept. I have some undereye darkness but it's not terrible. So I started using it everyday (the corrector) along with the concealer. It's nice, it brightens my eye area and as a result my whole face. It takes a little while to get the hang of how to use it but after that it becomes quite easy.
I'd recommend it, it provides good lasting coverage and it's a high quality product. Kind of pricey but ultimately worth a try, especially if you have really bad undereye circles
PS love this product. im updating my review. i have random redness near my mouth, under my nose and under my eyes.....this gets rid of them and gives my compexion a nice finish. BUT the only problem i have w/ this product is that after awhile, it settles into my lines (im 23, i dont really have any outstanding 'lines'....just natural ones that everyone has) so i cant imagine what itd be like for those with more mature skin. eek!
