I've always had dark circles, and age has exacerbated them. Of the "flaws" I want to cover up, it's always on the top three. But covering effectively when one has dry skin and is older? Tricky. If one piles on enough to camouflage, it looks cakey and worse than nothing, at least to my eyes. A reasonable amount helps some, but not nearly enough.
That's where I'm coming from; had heard this is an amazing, revolutionary product; that the specialized colors worked miracles, yada yada. Already had a lot of different correctors and concealers, never entirely happy with any of them, at least for this usage. Finally decided to give this a go; what did I have to lose?
So I dropped by my local Bobbi Brown counter, just wanting to test the colors and get more info. A lovely young gentleman was helping me--he was so cute, surprised I knew anything, I don't think he was a BB person, but very nice and helpful--and he was digging and digging, trying to find the color I wanted to test (Extra Light Peach Bisque). He FINALLY found one, but an unopened product, no tester. Sigh.
So along comes the BB rep, and she's nice if a bit businesslike; saying, "Oh, we've got a 15% off sale right now," and subtly steers me into purchasing. WTH, it's Nordstrom, can bring it back if I don't like it, right?
Took it home, gave it a whirl. Tried in several different techniques, and guess what? Just fine... but not revolutionary. Not even close. No better than the other correctors I have laying around, and for the price (nearly $30 for a TINY pan), I expect more/better. So yes, I returned it. NOT because it was bad, but because it did not do what I bought it for. I would have preferred that it worked; I would have sung its praises, I would have repurchased over and over again. But not to be; the search continues.
