This concealer really let me down. I always wanted to buy this concealer, but the price scared me away.. Then one day I finally convinced myself to buy it. I wanted to try it due to the really good reviews & I had high hopes for this concealer since its high end. I have dark under eye circles and little lines under my eyes.. Not wrinkles or anything, I've had these little lines since I was little.. Anyways, this concealer starts creasing on me almost instantly after application & it doesn't even cover the under eye darkness. I purchased the creamy concealer kit which came with a little setting powder.. Well that little powder made it even WORSE! The concealer looked so cakey and gross & it made the little creases under my eyes WAY more noticeable, it didn't look natural at all. ahh! It was horrible:/ soooo NOT worth the almost $50 I wasted on this!! I found that even drugstore concealers work way better than this.
I have the creamy concealer in shade 3.5. I quite like this concealer but it does seem a bit flaky at times, I have only used it a few times. It does it's job in concealing my flaw but it makes that area look dry. Do not think I will be purchasing again unless I can't find anything better. I originally wanted to buy another brand concealer but because I couldn't, I went with bobbi brown as I seem to swear by all their other cosmetics (foundation, moisturizers... and skin care products).
Price was not bad considering it is department store, I think I paid £23.50 (The SA gave me the concealer kit...)
I'm still going to keep using it and not purchase another anytime soon... cause if i do I probs will leave this one to waste
I used this concealer for a long time and was never really satisfied with its performance, but couldn't find anything I liked better (until I found Laura Mercier). Bobbi products are great but this concealer isn't. It is extremely sticky and wet and creases like crazy! I had to "press" my finger under my eyes every hour or so to get the concealer out of a very slight crease that I have near my lower lashes (and this is even after using a primer and finishing with Bobbi loose powder). I also have very dark circles and even with the corector, was not able to adequately conceal them. So for anyone who has very dark under eye circles, I do not recommnd this product.
Horrible! it creased and it didnt last! i used it over BB corrector and it would fade and flake. I've tried to use it mamt different ways, different type of correctors or alone and noyhing helped. i put eye cream in am and pm so my eye area is not too dry but this product creased so bad I returned it .
I have tried millions of concealers but always find my way back to this one. I gives me the best coverage yet not caky like some others that ive tried.
I have a love/hate relationship with this concealer. Sometimes it will give me the flawless coverage that I am dreaming about, but every once once in a while it will look very cake-y and unnatural. I prefer to apply it onto my under-eye area with my fingers and then blend it out with a standard concealer brush (I like the one from Ecotools.) I feel that the texture of the concealer is too thick to blend with my fingers without having to tug or pull on my skin (which I refuse to do.) The 'creaminess' can occasionally be a problem when I find that it will cake up over dry patches under my eye, so be sure that your under-eye area is well moisturized before applying this. Coverage wise, the Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer does it job. You can definitely build it up to full coverage (again make sure that your under-eye is moisturized or apply a good primer underneath) or just use a bit of it to just brighten your eyes. I HATE the pressed powder that comes in the new kits. It causes the concealer to settle into fine lines and makes me look even more tried. If you want to set this with a powder, I recommend the Too Faced Primed and Poreless finishing powder.
I am Nc 20-25. I use this product in shade Natural.
A realy really good all rounded concealer. very very creamy. Good for blemishes and under eye circles. Staying power is so-so, not super long lasting. Staying power increases when set with the loose powder that comes with it (or any setting powder). I recommend applying this concealer under the eyes with a fluffy blending brush. gives great coverage with a natural finish.
The sheer finish loose powder that comes with it is very handy for on the go. However it gets really messy. the loose powder easily goes everywhere! furthermore, when trying to touch up on concealer on the way, it's easy to pack on way too much powder if you use your fingers (which is usually the case for me on the go, I don't go around with makeup brushes in my bag). The powder itself is very very fine and soft.
Overall, great quality concealer with good coverage. The loose powder makes it great for travelling or on-the-go. Need to be careful with using the loose powder, can get real messy! Price is not too expensive therefore will repurchase!
Ewwww. Im 22 and i have NO wrinkles but this product some how like created wrinkles under my eyes.....So not good for dark circles (the corrector is amazing). I guess its ok for covering blemishes but i totally wanted this for my dark circles. :(
I used this product for several years and loved it. It completely masks dark circles and blemishes, is easy to blend, and comes in a wide variety of shades. Ivory and porcelain are gorgeous on fair skin. I did find it a little thick and cakey - definitely wouldn't recommend it for mature skin or using it anywhere you have lines or wrinkles. Once I started using fake tan I found that that masked my dark circles, so I didn't need to use concealer anymore. Otherwise, it'd still be a staple.
Love! I did not know why people loved concealer so much until I got my hands on this concealer. The formula is moisturizing, creamy and just so easy to work with. The shade for me (honey) works so well under my eyes and on my skin. I would definitely recommend Bobbi Brown concealers to South Asian or ladies that have tan skin tones with yellow undertones. I always gravitated towards Chanel, Dior, YSL etc, but those brands have awful shades in general though I was always to get a match. Bobbi Brown just makes a more precise match without giving that grey/pinkish slightly off tone.
