{Review} Bobbi Brown Corrector & Concealer

I bought my Bobbi Brown Corrector & Concealer one year ago when I was on the lookout for a great under-eye product that would help me look more awake and lively. I figured I couldn't go wrong with the two since they were really well loved and well known by most beauty junkies. However, like most overhyped products, just because items work on almost everyone who has talked about it, doesn't exactly mean it'll work out the same way for you (or me in this case).


Corrector: A wakeup call for tired eyes. Corrector is pink- or peach-based to neutralize under-eye darkness and is designed to be used before Creamy Concealer. New and improved formula is long-wearing and brightens dark circles with quick, just-right coverage that's easy to blend and won't crease. And since great makeup starts with healthy skin, Corrector is infused with skin conditioners to protect the delicate under-eye area.

Concealer: Bobbi's secret to looking fresh and well-rested: a yellow-based concealer that instantly camouflages dark circles. Bobbi's long-wearing Creamy Concealer gives you quick, just-right coverage. The new and improved formula is richer and creamier, so it goes on easy, blends smoothly and stays put. Plus it's infused with skin conditioners to protect the delicate under-eye area. Your ideal shade of Creamy Concealer is one shade lighter than your foundation.


PROS:
- the corrector does a great job correcting my under-eye circles

CONS:
- thick, heavy, & waxy texture
- settles in & emphasizes fine lines
- looks cakey majority of the time no matter how I applied it
- creases
- hard to blend & smooth out even if I use my fingers to warm up the product
- very little lasting power even though I set them both with powder

Overall, I am not impressed. My MAC Select Moisturecover concealer does a better job correcting my dark circles and it's even cheaper than the two mentioned.

Will I repurchase? Definitely no.

Thanks for stopping by!
