Where I got it: I got this from the new Bobbi Brown counter at Farmers Botany Town Center. I have been wanting this for a while now before all other brands have come up with correctors and corrector palettes, etc. I went in for a complimentary makeup lesson and the makeup artist used this on my dark circles to combat my bluish-purple shade. This corrector was RRP$55.00.
What I got: This is Bobbi Brown Corrector in Light Bisque. A wakeup call for tired eyes—this essential corrector brightens and covers discolouration under the eyes utilising a pink- or peach-based formula to neutralise undereye darkness. Waterproof, sweat and humidity-resistant, this long-wearing formula boasts a uniquely creamy-smooth texture for perfectly smooth coverage that’s easy to blend and won’t crease. Infused with skin conditioners to protect the delicate undereye area and available in 16 skin-tone-correct correcting shades (so everyone gets a match).
How I find it: This is a cream corrector for the under eye area as a corrector only. It is designed to be used with a concealer applied over it. It has a salmon/orange undertone and this shade was matched to me by the MUA at the Bobbi Brown counter. They had many different shades and many different concealer and corrector options to choose from. This cream corrector is actually on the drier side so it dries down a bit matte and thin if you apply it property so I would recommend applying a good eye cream as a base to avoid that really dry undereye look. I like to use my index finger to warm up the product in the little pan, then I pat the product onto my dark circles only and blend with my fingers. You can also use a flat synthetic concealer brush to apply the product, but I would recommend using fingertips to blend it out because it just gives better control and the warmth will make it blend easier.
After blending out the corrector, I purposely not blend it too sheer because there wouldn’t be enough pigment to counteract the darkness. Then I let that set for about a minute, then I will apply concealer over the top. A sheer, light later would do because now that the darkness is balanced, I don’t need much concealer to cover the area. After the concealer, I will always set it with my Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder with a mini beauty blender. Otherwise I also bought the Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Pressed Powder and I will use a small fluffy brush to set the powder.
Overall: I love the corrector shade for my dark circles, but I am torn between having a more creamy consistency and a more drier/matte consistency. A creamier consistency doesn’t make my eye area look dry, but it would move and crease even when I do set it. A drier consistency would be less likely to crease on my eye area but when I powder it, it will look really dry and cakey. One tip I would recommend with drier formulas is mix a bit of eye cream and corrector/concealer on the back of your hand and then apply the corrector. Overall, it is a nice product, but I think there are more affordable products out there that could do a similar job as well, I just need to find a good shade match.
