An ok product. Light peach worked fine on my nc35 skin tone. Maybe someone with blue cercles will find this color more useful. With cercles are more dark brown than blue. I just used it up, it took me a year, I used it under my MAC studio finish concealer, but I could skip the BB corrector, I couldn't see the difference. Overall I find this product a bit ineffective, very sheer, doesn't sjow much. like every other BB product I bought, I feel It is a was a waste of money!

This corrector did not have any effect on my bluish circles. In addition, it became cakey within an hour and looked very unsightly. I tried applying it in different ways, with primer, without, with skin toned concealer on top and without, and it simply did not work no matter how I applied it. It has a dry consistency and no matter how much I applied, it had no effect on my dark circles whatsoever. The last thing I want is cakey concealer. I tried using eye cream beforehand and also tried not using eye cream beforehand, and neither way was successful. All in all, I simply could not make this product work. My bluish circles looked much worse, which was certainly not the goal. The object was to minimize the circles not to make them more pronounced, which is exactly what this product did. They looked much worse than when I do nothing. I know no product will totally eliminate my circles. They are hereditary and have gotten worse as I've gotten older. However, certainly there's something that can minimize them and make me look well rested. This is my only objective. However, this Bobbi Brown Corrector did absolutely zero for me so I returned it to the store. I've had much better results with Urban Decay Naked Cream Concealer and will stay with it for the foreseeable future. I also don't like having to use two layers, first a corrector then a concealer, which just accentuates fine lines. So I'm staying with what works for me. This Bobbi Brown product was a complete bust for me. I can't imagine anyone can make it work. I guess if you wear a LOT of makeup, it isn't far fetched to use two layers of concealer. But for me, it look far to obvious. I want to diminish the circles, not call attention to them. This is a cakey product and not for me. I don't recommend it at all.

The Bobbi Brown corrector is the first step on my "please go away dark circles" concealing routine. Basically it's a colour correcting (heho) creamy product. Depending on the colour of your eye bags you will be one of two colours (a peach for brown and a bisque for blue). To counteract these tones, a orangey bisque or peachy tone is placed on the bag and then a skin coloured concealer is placed on top. If you don't have eye bags that are bad and coloured then don't use this, because then the colour will peak through and you will have orangey under eyes.

I am not a massive fan of a really high maintenance routine, but my under eyes really bug me so this is where I put in the majority of my effort. The BB correcter is super creamy and only a small amount is needed. I press my finger in once and then blend the product in too the corner of my under eye where I am darkest and then blend outwards towards the lighter blue areas. I really do think a corrector makes all the difference if you have dark circles and the BB is THE best on the market.

Yes it's expensive but there isn't really anything in the pharmacy (drugstore) that compares. It creates a flawless base for further concealing. Packaging isn't anything special (not a massive BB packaging fan) but it is functional and that's what I appreciate it for. If you have bad dark circles give this a go.

This product is a must have for me. I have very dark under eye circles and have struggled to find something that hides them. While they will never truly be gone, using this corrector does make a big difference. I've used several shades, but using the light to medium peach currently. The product is very creamy and a little goes a long way. It is necessary to blend it well (I used finger tip to pat it) then I used liquid concealer over it, set with powder. It can get creasey if you don't apply the concealer and set quickly, but easy to pat the creases out. I haven't tried any other brands of concealer because I like this one so much. The packaging is great, too. The small mirror comes in handy when applying the product.

I really love this product! I have it in the colour peach. It really is amazing how well it covers up my dark circles, they literally disappear. I've been searching for a product that can actually cover up my dark circles and this is it. I will definitely repurchase, HG status.

My dark circles are difficult to conceal with liquid concealer. I have bruise colored dark circles so I learned to use a corrector to cancel out the purple hue under my eyes. I use the shade Light-Medium Bisque. I usually use my fingers to apply/ blend the product, but I do use a concealer brush for more coverage. Then I set it with a light dusting of translucent powder (MUFE) before I layer a separate concealer over the corrector to get rid of the salmon color like a lightweight liquid concealer (Maybelline Fit Me) in a shade that is near or slightly darker than my skin tone. This can settle into fine lines and wrinkles, so blending is important. This can last you a long time if you use it sparingly. Mine's lasted for about a year and I'm on my third Bobbi Brown corrector. I would definitely repurchase this and recommend to anyone with hard-to-conceal dark circles (and minimal fine lines).

Pros:
- Covers dark circles well
- Heavy duty
- Tiny compact with a mirror
- Smooth, buttery formula, easy to blend
- Satin finish, not greasy or shiny

Cons:
- expensive for a small amount (over 25 USD)
- not hygienic
- gets easily messy and smudged around the edges
- not easy to use for makeup novices
- can get into fines lines (not recommended to people with a lot of fine lines or wrinkles)

Recently I reviewed the Bobbi Brown serum foundation. Along with the serum foundation, the brand has also launched a matching serum corrector and concealer. The new corrector and concealer, in lipstick style packaging, is meant to replace their old corrector and concealer. This new serum duo (corrector and concealer) covers dark circles reasonbly and didn't settle into my lines, as the older product. However, be warned, as with the serum foundation, the coverage is light. Hence, if you gave fairly dark rings under the eyes, this may not cover well enough. To make it work better, instead of the serum corrector, I used Bobbi's old corrector ( which is thicker, more like a paste) to cover my dark rings first, and then applied the new serum concealer over that. This definitely gave me better coverage. The price of both the new corrector and concealer is simply horrendous. I payed a few rands short of R1000 for the duo. Bobbi's prices are becoming ridiculous!

I have this corrector in dark peach. It's creaminess is just right for under my eyes. The color is decent on it's own. The correction is subtle and when I pair it with concealer I see the real difference. Goodbye tired eyes! I like it (dark peach) a lot but I don't love it. I would like to try this formula in deep peach next. That may be a while because I only need a tiny bit per application.

The packaging is perfect. Classic Bobbi Brown, black and compact. I don't mind having an extra mirror too!
