I like this product and I dont think you need the corrector prior to using it. This alone is enough. I like the packaging and love that it comes with a setting powder but sometimes I dont even set it since it dries out my skin. Not sure it lasts that long though.
I found this product to be ok. The colour was slightly too orange for me without foundation, although with foundation I think it would be ok. The consistency was quite sticky. By the end of the day there was barely anything there and what was left was quite cakey (when using the powder it comes with).
It is creamy as advertised. My shade of choice is Warm Ivory..it's my favorite concealer so far ... one lippie off though because it creases a little because of its consistency. Otherwise, a great concealer.
I had never bought anything from Bobbi Brown and I was looking for a new concealer, I went to the counter, not expecting to walk away with anything, nor to find a colour that matched. I have skin that looks fairer than it actually is and so finding products to match my skintone is awkward for me. I was pleasently surprised by the colour range that was displayed and when I tested the product i was happy with the creamy texture. When applied under the eyes it covers dark circles well and does not cake like some concealers can, it also works really well around the nostrils where I tend to get some redness. The coverage on blemishes is also something that I was anxious to see as I wanted a concealer that I could apply under my eyes and also on problem areas and it be suitable for all. I am happy to say that it worked wonders on all areas and I will definitely be purchasing this product again when it runs out :) I am using the colour Sand.
I have been using this concealer in "Ivory" for awhile now. I have fair skin and I am Asian. I only use this concealer for the dark circles under my eyes. It covers well and lasts all day. The concealer itself is very sticky and creamy so make sure to finish it off with your face powder over it so it stays. I am almost done this concealer and will definitely go repurchase another one! I bought mine at Murale at the Shops on Don Mills! Great place to shop and get optimum points!
I don't think I've ever had so many mixed feelings about a product before in my life! The concealer is alright...it really brightens the eyes while concealing the subtle darkness I have (I don't really have dark circles...just a little darkness around the corners of my eyes) but the consistency is very sticky...not pleasant. It creases after a while, and I really don't like the powder it comes with. I've never been a fan of Bobbi Brown, but this was less of a disappointment than I thought. I doubt I'll repurchase...
hear great things about this product however it was not what i expected. it does not cover at all. its very drying. don't like the packaging because you have to use your fingers or bring a brush with you. but the worse was the drying part. it made me look like i have bad skin.will not repurchase
This is the second concealer I've ever purchased, and it's definitely not the best one. I heard reviews about how awesome Bobbi Brown concealers are, but they're really not that amazing.
Coverage: I have trouble concealing the redness around my nose and above my lip. The concealer doesn't seem to do anything for me. However, it does cover small blemishes from acne, so that's not a big problem.
Color: I'm peach porcelain and I'm currently NC20-25ish. (It's winter so I'm in between right now)
Usage: I use my finger to apply the product, and it does help the skin absorb the product instead of creating a mask on top of your face. I think using your fingers to pat the product into your skin really helps it blend into your skin so it looks more natural.
I would not, however, purchase this product again because like I said, it did not cover most of the redness around my nose. Instead it made it more apparently by caking up.
I do recommend setting this concealer with a powder to set the tackiness of the cream concealer.
Total change of heart on this product. Gave me a horrible dry rash around my eye and nose where i apply it - and i don't have sensetive skin.. never broke out that badly from anything before. The texture is hard to blend, its quite sticky, also i feel like the powder it comes with just clings to it rather than actually sets it. BUT a lot of people love this concealer. People with sensetive skin - BEWARE!
I got both the corrector and concealer for Christmas. I'm on a picket fence about both. I love the velvet smooth consistency, making application a tug free process. I find these products to be a bit sheer and last for a short amount of time. I have to really cake on both products, and they never really dry. The colors are wonderful and match perfectly, but I need more coverage and I don't want to wait 10 minutes for my corrector to set in. My mother was so excited to get this for me, I'd hate to break her heart and return them, so I will continue to "pack em on."
