I just got this yesterday so I have used it only once, this morning. I am a fan of Loreal Airwear concealer, use the shade pale/fair but they have discontinued a long time back so I am on the look out for a light enough concealer to replace it.
So far, I'm liking this product, perhaps even better than the BB corretor, which I did like and have re-purchased. It is not too yellow like most concealers are, the colour is more neutral (I use the lightest shade porcelain), and the concealer does not seem to become a greyish cast on your undereye circles, espcially after you have worn it for 4-5hrs, which is the problem encountered with most concealers I have tried. This is the reason why I use only correctors on my undereye area. While not the best, they do work better. But I think this item might be the ticket that surpasses correctors as the neutral tone of the concealer enables a nice uniform colour on my face, with no tell tale signs of concealer being used on the eye area. I'll see how the product continues to wear, if it keeps up, I'll come back and give it the 5 lippies it deserves.
Update- I've used it a number of times now, and I have to say this concealer doesn't cover as well as the corrector used alone. I have decided to downgrade the 4 lippies to a 3 and switched back to the corrector.
Just Plain bad.....the girl at the counter tried some on me, set it with the podwer, I told her I would ck it out for an hour and walk around the store, when I went into the dressing room to try on something,
I looked in the mirror and OMG....I had such a mess under my eyes
It creased all up and the podwer made it worse......thank god I did
not buy it...
The consistency is too hard to blend, it sinks right into the wrinkles under my eyes making them more visible and when i try to cover up problem areas it just makes it look worse no matter how much o how little of product i use. Considering the price this is unfair.
I really really like this!
First of all, I don't have wrinkles thank god! So this review might not help those looking to find fine lines... and I do have dark circles...
and for dark circles this works like miracle! If you find your right tone you'll fall in love with it... I can't believe how natural fresh and healthy my skin looks with it, as if I've got nothing on!
Its creamy, so easy to apply, just tap it on to start with, and then merge things together... and it can last you for really long since its quite thick and covers perfectly well...
One problem with it is that it creases on my upper lid the moment I apply it!but what I do is blend it more until the creases disappear... the secret key to this is to use the right amount! Do not use too much, nor use too little, and you'll be happy...
Firstly id like to say this product is GOOD for covering dark circles and blemishes on the face aswell...my routine with this is as follows:
I put my foundation on..at the moment am wearing no7 intelligent colour foundation, which is quick and easy to apply yet looks very natural and covered! I then apply bobbi brown highlighter around my eye area (as advised by bobbi brown lady at counter)...this apparently cancels out the purples in your dark circles and makes your eyes look brighter and healthier (which I agree with)..I then apply this concealer and it matches my skin well and completely covers...
I use a no7 concealer brush to apply it and apply it all over on my eyelids and on the sides of my eyes to brighten them up...its very good...better than mac concealers which I used to use before but found they just didnt match my skin colour and made my eyes look grey...
one thing I would say though is that you would need to apply a setting powder on this...also when wearing sunglasses in summer I have found that they sort of dig through and leave slight 'sunglasses' marks with which av had to pat with my fingertips once removing my glasses to blend in again...
apart from this I would recommend this product as it looks good and covers well :)
Excellent product! Conceals pretty well, is thick but moisturizer. Goes on great with a smudger brush. After trying so many others, I always go back to BB (sand).
This is my favourite concealer. I am NC20 and use Warm Ivory. I prefer the concealer by itself rather than with the cumbersome concealer kit. It is compact and lasts ages (+6 months)
Coverage is awesome and as it's yellow toned it noticeably lighens dark under-eye circles and brighten your under-eye area.
I generally use the BB corrector in Light Bisque before applying my concealer. The two are designed to be used together and I notice that the corrector is better used when the eye area is particularly dark/puffy. On a good morning I can skip the corrector and just use the concealer.
I find it is vital to set this concealer gently with a colourless / translucent powder otherwise it will not last even half the day. By setting it it should easily last 8-10 hours.
This is one of my favourite Bobbi Brown products and I can see why it has one awards. I would definitely recommend this product.
The only downside is that if you purchase the corrector and concealer (as you should) then it is very expensive, although in saying that the product lasts a good 6 months if used every day.
I found the Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer in my color of porcelain in my local CCO. I was so excited to try this product (for $15), as I had read a lot of great reviews about it.
I have tried a good many concealers from department store cosmetic companies like Clinique, but none of them have worked as well as this product. It is creamy and easy to blend an matches my fair skin better than any other concealer I have tried. The coverage is great and I tend to use less of this product than previous concealers I have tried, which makes me very happy! Its very long wearing as well!
The packaging is great, with a flip top that clicks shut so I don't feel like the product will dry out any time soon. It also has a nice sized mirror for applying touch-ups.
I will be running back to my CCO to purchase this again ASAP.
BEST concealer I have ever used. I wish it were less expensive but I will definitely buy this again. It lasts a long time because I am still using the one I got a year ago and it looks like I have a little more than half left. The packaging is perfect. It's very creamy and very powerful concealer so you don't need a lot at all to cover even the darkest of undereye circles. It works well as a brightener as well. I use the corrector underneath and my circles are gone :) Apply with a brush for the best results and smile when you see the results!
Really great product, worth the money! I love this concealer! It makes your under eye circle disappear. Use with tapping motion and then set with powder. No cons i can say with the product. I can use for blemishes as well.
