BB's Corrector is a product that works very well to correct & conceal under eye circles as well as brighten the under eye area (in a very natural way). I have a love/hate relationship w/ this product because it doesn't always work for me. Some days it disappears too quickly (I do always set it w/ LM Brightening or LM Translucent powder) and on other days it drys my under eye area to a cakey mess. Once in a blue moon it's fantastic & brightens, conceals and sets to a realistic finish that last all day & doesn't get dry & flakey. I don't even need a concealer over it (btw, I DON'T recommend BB's Concealers over the Correctors-too creamy & seem to ruin any correcting that the Corrector achives). I believe that the issues I encounter w/ this product have everything to do w/ the condition of the skin under my eyes. My under-eye area tends to be dry thus the flaking and if I use extra moisturizer in this area that lessons the staying-power of the product. So for me, it's a balancing act to get it to stay put & not flake which is why I am only giving it 3 stars. I do think it's worth giving a try if your main issue is under eye circles. It does conceal & brighten very well. Finding the correct color is crucial. I am an NC 20-25 in MAC, O20 in Shishedo & CDP Ivory or Beige & I have found that BB Corrector shade in Light Peach works best for me to conceal my bluish-purple under eye circles. **Some tips re: finding the best color: I am always steered towards the pinky, bisque colors by the BB MA's. I have tried 4-5 different colors in both the peach & bisque shades. I do NOT look good in the bisque shades. They turn my skin an odd greyish color. I am an NC20-25, light skin w/ pale yellow undertones but also have Rosacea so have pink cheeks. BB MA's take 1 look at me & see pink cheeks & light skin & steer me towards the bisqued-colored shades. They are trained this way. When BB MA's are taught how to use BB Correctors, they are told that only darker,olive skin-tones should use the peach-toned Correctors. It's not true. I look best in Light Peach as do many others w/ my coloring. My circles are bluish-purple so it makes sense that bisque doesn't correct them much. As far as Correctors are concerned, it matters what color your under eye circles are. That's where I think BB MA's need to be educated-pinkish, bisque color cancels out brown & peach colors cancel out blue/purple. I actually had to have BB MA apply Light Bisque under 1 eye & Light Peach under the other eye to convince her that Light Peach worked better on me. She agreed that Light Bisque didn't work well at all & admitted that she was very surprised because it went against everything she was taught. My advice to you, especially if you are fair-light skinned, is to try out many of the shades in both the pinkish & peachish colors. Get samples, if possible, or just have BB MA apply a different shade under each eye. * Overall, BB Correctors are an excellent product if you can find your perfect match & if the skin under your eyes is not prone to dryness.

This is my favorite Bobbi Bronw product! It works great with the Concealer Kit (Creamy Concealer and Pressed Powder). I've never used Corrector or Concealer before, I always thought I don't need that kind of stuff... But when I had a Make Up lesson by the Bobbi Brown Corner in Switzerland, I couldn't believe how great it looks! Now I would never leave the house without it.
I have this annoying redness around my nose, it always looks like I was wearing glassing the whole day and took it off in this second. So i tried many products or fundations with extremly opacity (sorry I hope its the right word in english) and nothing stayed long enough during the day. I've also tried some redness solution products (powder, cremes...) but the redness always shine through. Often people asked me what happend around my nose or why I'm so red... and this was sometimes really embarrassing!
So I tried to use the Corrector (and Concealer) in this area and I'm absolutely delighted! My redness vanishes, my eyes look much brighter and I feel secure during the day.

I have this in Peach. I am an NC30 but the area under my eyes are too dark and for many years, I can't find the right concealer for them. I already tried A LOT including MAC and Cinema Secrets until I went to Bobbi Brown and wow, this worked on me. It doesn't totally eradicate the darkness but it really worked wonders. Only downside is the fact that I have a crease under both my eyes so some of it accumulates in that area but it's cool as I think ALL products are quite like that on me and I don't think it's correctable unless my creases leave ;-).
To add up, recently I started to use the Bobbi Brown Tinted Highlighter in peach as well before I apply this corrector on the really dark areas of my under-eyes as recommended by Bobbi Brown's makeup consultant. Waaaaaay better!

I have very dark circles under my eyes and have spent thousands over the years searching for the perfect cover up product without being too heavy that it sits in lines etc. I have bobbi brown concealer and corrector but I love this way more than the concealer, it has a yellow base as with all bobbi brown products which counteracts the blue/purplish colour that is a problem under my eyes. It has great coverage without caking and does not dry too quick that it cant be manipulated and blended. Love this and use it all over my face as a concealer. Will definitely keep buying and a small pot will last you forever. Well at least 6 months!

Really wanted to love this. Found it too gummy and sticky for my undereyes (or anywhere else). Color match was fine, but this didn't go on smoothly under my eyes and definitely looked more than cakey with a setting powder. Even without the setting powder it just looked thick no matter how little I put on and this creased without a setting powder so nothing worked for me with this product. Gave it so many tries and wanted to love it.

I get eczema on my eyelids and around my eyes so moisture is very important in a corrector/concealer for my under eyes. The texture is very creamy and the staying power, coverage, and overall quality is par none. I will continue to use and repurchase this.

I have an allergy. So dark circles always be my big problem, but not anymore. This product changes my life. The texture is so smooth and it's so creamy. It covers dark circles very nicely. This might not be necessary if you don't have very dark circles.

I have gone through 3 Bobbi Brown correctors over these past few years..HOWEVER...I have been on a search for something better, something more long-lasting and something that doesn't settle into fine lines. I am NC15 (really pale with warm undertones) and I bought this in Light Bisque which is perfect. It makes a crazy difference when you first apply it!
I didn't much like the Bobbi Brown concealer (my match was the colour Warm Ivory) because it was too thick. I used instead the BB corrector with Mac's Studio Finish concealer in NC15, and I used the BB yellow setting powder on top. It never lasted half the day, and it creased like crazy. So a Mac SA proposed I use a Mac eye paint for my under eye area, so I bought "Soft Ocre' which is a bit of a dark yellow for my skin, but it definitely corrects, and with the studio finish concealer on top it's a winner. I love Bobbi Brown products, I use their whole skincare range which I LOVE, but I just can't win with this corrector. :(

Best corrector by far. Amazing coverage, lasts all day.

I have always suffered from very dark under eye circles which have got a lot worse recently! Even though I was using macs studio fix concealer (nc42) i still needed more to fully reduce the dark circles. After reading reviews on the corrector I decided to get colour matched and was matched with peach. I love it!
Great colour match for all skin tones.
Full coverage (could be used by itself without concealer if your circles aren't too bad)
Works well with mac studio fix concealer (can't comment on other brands)
Really reduces the appearance of the circles! My bad circles are still slightly visible but have been reduced a great deal with this product.
Packaging includes a mirror for easy top up on the go.
Can look a bit cakey, need to really moisturise eye area before application.
Sinks into fine lines.
Staying power isn't too long.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Red Eyes: Hazel
Holy crap... this is really good. And you need barely anything for it to cover
I have it in the light Bisque.
It is a peachy flesh tone colour.
THIS is the HG under eye concealer.
It's pretty expensive- $30 Canadian at Sephora, but it last forever and is really effective. Dark Circles DISAPPEAR, and in pictures, your eyes look PERFECT.
Really nothing more to say.

I use this constantly, it works very well. Better than the many different concealers I've tried. I highly recommend this product.

I finally got around to trying this product. I've heard many rave reviews about it, but I thought I was doing fine with my MUF full cover concealer. Lately that has just not been doing it for me, so I went in to Sephora and had the sales girl try this on me. It's AWESOME.
I have SUPER dark heredity circles around my eyes, and my eyes are deep set, which makes the circles look even worse! The circles are a redish, purpleish, blueish colour, so finding something to cover all those colours was a pain.
This product only takes one swipe and the colours are pretty much corrected! The pot I have is kind of peachy. So, one swipe and then I layer a little bit of MUF full cover concealer over it and set it with the MUF HD powder. It's awesome! Looks much better than anything I'vve tried before. It does crease a little bit throughout the day, but I have super squinty-eye when I smile so that will always be a problem for me. I just tap under my eye a little to warm the products up and blend them a little again.
Totally recommend this product. Go try it out first if you are hesitant to shell out the cash for it.

i absolutely love this correcter/concealer. i have it in dark peach. i love how it totally cancels out the darkness under the eyes. it blends so well with my skin and does not crease. the texture is creamy which is great for under eyes. without this correcter, concealer looks very ashy, no matter what concealer I use. its defiantly a must have. it does seem pricey but it lasts a very long time. I bought it over a year ago and i use it almost every single day. a little dab goes a long way. i still have almost 1/4 of the jar left and i think it will still last me for few months at least. So don't get discouraged by the price of this product.

I have never used a corrector before using a concealer. I didn't think it was necessary. After debating whether or not to buy Bobbi Brown's corrector, I decided to give it a go. My dark circles were concealed well and my eyes looked brighter and less tired. I've tried using the corrector on it's own and it's good enough to use without a concealer as it does a great job counteracting my dark purpleish brown circles. I tried the concealer on it's own and for some reason it looked abit ashy. The MUA colour matched me "peach" as my correcter (which helped brighten and blended well with my skintone) and "honey" as my concealer. It feels creamy, moisturising and lightweight. I set it with either MAC prep + prime transparent finishing powder or Ben Nye bella luxury "banana" powder. I like how it looks before I set my makeup but because I have oily skin and the creamy consistency of the concealer I do need to powder to prevent creasing. I would definitely buy this again despite the price tag - it's worth every penny!

I have this in Light to Medium Bisque. As someone who suffers from very, very dark purple eye bags, and who doesn't want to wear heavy concealer or foundation, this product has erased most of the evidence of my night owl lifestyle. I say most because while I corrects the pigmentation problem, should I want to completely mask my eye bags, I also need to use an illuminator (Maybelline Dream Lumi Concealer/Highlighter). I don't find it cakey or obvious that I'm wearing anything. I'm planning to repurchase in Light Peach to compare the Bisque and Peach shades.

I have this in dark peach. This corrector has been a tremendous help with covering up any dark spots and circles on my face. I must admit, I was skeptical about the results I was reading about in various review sites. I'm glad I decided to give this a try as it really works for me.
I apply this with my fingers and blend well. You don't need a lot of this product for it to work. I then apply a very light brush of concealer over the top and set with a light dusting of powder. It gives my face a more brightened look. I have not experienced any creasing with this....I've applied it both before and after foundation and it seems to work the same either way for me.
With a full-coverage foundation, using this gives me a totally flawless face.
It was a bit pricey, but it will last a very long time since I don't need a lot to get great results.

I really love this product! My skin is a natural tan color so I use the light peach corrector and I LOVE IT!!! I had been looking for a concealer for so long that would cover up the dark circles under my eyes and no concealer could ever fully cover them while still allowing me to look natural. I finally decided to try something a little more expensive and see if it might help to spend a little more money to get better results and I did! I use the bobbi brown corrector along with my loreal (warm 4-5) concealer but the corrector alone is enough for me. I get self conscious so I always use both. I can get about a year of use out of 1 of these and the money is sooo worth it!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair, Warm Hair: Black, Straight, Medium Eyes: Brown
I'm very surprised at the negative reviews on the corrector!
I actually like it, but I do agree there are some faults.
I went to the Bobbi Brown counter with my best friends mom took get her concealer because she heard it was good she has some melasma and really dark circles due to being lactose intolerant. Anyway, so she tries on the corrector and she fell in love with it! It looked really natural covered everything and used it underneath the concealer.
So I went out and bought it, and let me tell you a corrector for $28 is a huge splurge for a college girl! I bought it in the shade light peach I went outside with a mirror just to make sure it didn't look off. The corrector covered the veins under my eyes and my eyelids becasue the skin is so thin there.sometimes I use it alone because my skin has an olive/warm undertone anyway with out any concealer.
The best way to apply it is with your fingers because they're warm to the touch. And every now and then my corrector would be in my study desk and it gets warm from my computer being there heating up all afternoon. It covers some dark post-acne spots that I have fairly well but I usually use Makeup Forever's Full Cover Concealer that you DONT USE UNDER YOUR EYES, I would shake my head everytime I heard reviews on that specific concealer and try to use it under their eyes.
I would not recommend this to girls who have particularly oily skin, more like normal/combo/dry because it does crease a lot but I just put powder and I'm fine.
Shelf life lasts up to 8 months if you're diligent in using it, it's supposed to last up to 2 years.

The corrector in bisque is perfect for NC35 skin. I had darkness under my eye and without concealor my mom asked if I had a black eye. The minute she said that I went straight to the BB counter to upgrade my undereye concealor. It was expensive but I look refreshed now and there isn't enough money to trade that. Worth every penny!
