Bobbi Brown Corrector

I tend to get dark circles around my eyes when I don't get enough sleep. Unfortunately, since I have not been getting much sleep lately, they are present! I needed something that would hide my circles and make me appear more awake. I have tried very few under eye concealers, but they still did not make me look more awake or cover the circles.
I stumbled upon Essiebutton, one of my favorite makeup YouTubers/bloggers, and I noticed that she used the Bobbi Brown Corrector. It did wonders for her, so I figured it might do something for me. About two weeks ago I went to the Bobbi Brown counter at my local department store and asked for a demo. I loved what it did so I bought it!

I got it in the shade Porcelain Bisque. It cost $23 for 0.05 oz of product. For me, it does not crease, even though I do put powder on it after applying. It lasts all day and definitely makes me appear more awake! I apply it with my finger or a brush; they both work great, it just depends on how much time I have in the morning to get ready. I will mention this, it is NOT a concealer; it is a corrector. A corrector is used before a concealer to neutralize the dark circles so that the concealer can camouflage them. But honestly, the corrector is good enough for me.

The packaging is a black sleek compact with a mirror. The product itself is creamy, but not sticky on the skin. When you first touch it, it does feel a little thick, but a little bit goes a long way. It does not smudge away when I apply my foundation after, and it stays on well after setting it with powder.
Left side has corrector.....right side does not.

After applying the rest of my makeup!

Would I repurchase? I think yes! It is a bit pricey, but it does a great job! I really like it and would recommend it to others.

  1. Thank you for reviewing! I'm still on the fence about this because it's such a pricey concealer xx

    1. You are very welcome! If you are still unsure, I think you should get a demo of it.

  2. I may just have to try this concealer. I have the dreaded dark circles too. Great review.

  3. I am currently using the Perricone MD one, I did a review of it if you would like to check it out, was only a few days ago. I might try this after though :) thanks for the review and pictures :)


    1. I didn't know Perricone made one. I only knew of the Bobbi Brown one and the Benefit Erase Paste. =) I will check it out

  4. It makes such a big difference. I am going to ask for a demo and see how it looks on me as it is a lot of money. My poor bank account!

    Great review!


  5. It is really nice! Thanks for the review!!


  6. I love the concept of both eyes side by side with the concealer, but I don't see much of a difference! Lol. Your circles must not be so bad.

    1. It is very slight, but it makes a world of difference in making me look more awake haha

  7. I feel the same about BB products! I love the quality and the packaging, but it's a bit out of my budget at the moment.



I enjoy reading your comments! So please feel free to leave me one. Thanks for stopping by my blog <3
