I recently popped along to my local Bobbi Brown counter to buy a foundation, which I did end up buying (blog post coming soon), but as part of their recommendation they did me a complete make over which was pretty much fab. I can tell you I didn’t just buy the foundation. I bought a few bits, but what I’m going to talk about today is the Corrector and Creamy Concealer Kit. I was so impressed by this in the store I just had to buy.
The idea of these is for use under the eyes. The Corrector neutralises discolouration and the Concealer brightens the area. So here’s my shades.
Actually I picked up the wrong shade corrector, this is is Light Bisque, but I should have gone with Bisque. It still works but I know it doesn’t work quite as well as Bisque did when they put it one me.
The Creamy Concealer Kit is Cool Sand with Pale Yellow Powder.
So my first observation of the two cream products was that there was no way they were going to work for me, colour wise, they look, in the pan, way too dark. Somehow they do work though. I have no idea how. The best thing I can do is show you the products in use.
So in the first picture we have just the corrector under the right eye (in the picture). Already you can see the discolouration on the left eye which isn’t underneath the right one.
Then, again, right eye only, I’ve added the concealer on top, with a very light dusting of the pale yellow powder to set it and brighten.
Finally, both eyes corrected, concealed and powdered.
These products are now my must haves for concealing under the eyes, they just work so well. I must add that I find the concealer no good at all on my blemishes, it slides off almost immediately, but for under eyes it works like a charm with no creasing. If it creases, you’ve used to much, you really need very little indeed.
I highly recommend both of these products but would say you really need to get colour matched at a counter. I would have absolutely bought the palest shade on offer if I hadn’t have had them put on me in store, and that would have been far too pale. The same applies to the foundation I bought actually, it’s several shades darker than I would have chosen for myself, but is actually a perfect match.
