Product Rave! Bobbi Brown Corrector. Just Wow.




This is a huge rave, so in case you're wondering; this is not sponsored (I was not paid) and I bought this pot of joy with my own money. I just want you all to know how fantastic I think this product is!

If you have dark under eye circles, I encourage you to give Bobbi Brown Corrector a go. I had spent years trying every product imaginable to cover, and treat my dark circles, with varying levels of success. Some worked somewhat, others worked well, and some just didn't work at all. This Corrector works brilliantly! It's a little pricey at $40, but seriously worth every cent. The results are hands down the best I've ever experienced. With other makeup products I've tried (from concealers to brighteners and correctors) they have only at best partly hidden the problem. This Bobbi Brown baby nearly completely conceals the darkness. There is only a slight hint of faint darkness once my makeup is finished, depending on which concealer I choose to layer over the top of it. I'm hoping that with more sleep (as this is a huge deciding factor in the severity of my circles) and this product, I can appear complelely bright-eyed. I'll also be experimenting with different shades and types of concealers for over the top, to hopefully find the perfect one for me. But for now, I am extremely impressed with the improvement. I feel amazing because a normal under-eye appearance means I look years younger. I'd grown used to always looking tired, but no more! I have found my Holy Grail eye product for dark circles.

What Bobbi Brown say: "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)."




The product itself is housed in a little round black plastic pot with a flip up lid and a mirror inside. You get 1.4g of product for $40.  It pays to get colour-matched so you know you're choosing the correct shade. I spoke to the Bobbi Brown consultant after swatching the shades on my hand and he instantly knew Porcelain Bisque was my colour, because I'm so damn pale. He was spot on! The consistency is thick yet easily blendable, giving high coverage and a smooth finish, providing a perfect base for concealer. I use my fingertip to apply this on the inner corners and right under my eye, covering any darkness, then gently tap it in. It's best to use your ring finger as this is the one with the lightest touch (thanks YouTube for that little nugget of information).  I then draw an upside-down triangle under my eyes with my concealer wand and blend (again, tapping) with my fingertips, and finish with a very light dusting of my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder. I'm using far less concealer under my eyes since adding the Corrector to my routine, because I just don't need as much. I also find it's best to go easier on the powder under my eyes, compared to the rest of my face, so that it doesn't settle into any fine lines. The staying power is amazing; for me, at least, it won't budge all day.

I know what it's like to live with constant dark circles, and am so happy to have found an amazing product that counteracts the darkness so effectively. If your dark circles are the bane of your existence, this is the product I'd recommend.




Have you tried the Bobbi Brown Corrector? Did it work for you?

  10. Gosh Di, I definitely need some of this - I don't have dark circles, but I have freckled skin, and a couple of darker freckles right underneath my eyes so the area looks patchy. This sounds like it will do the coverage job just beautifully - thanks for a great (and honest) review hon ♥
