2013 is already a week old and I’m still making mistakes writing 2013. hehehe. really, tell me, its happening to you too -right????
I have a very old relationship (
albeit illicit) with dark circles. Most of it is to be blamed on late night movies and reading tons and tons of books. Very few classics though!!!
I often use a concealer while going out to make them look tolerable but I always thought I needed something more. well, an 8hr sleep with a quiet mind is out of the question for lots but I do try and remedi-fy them sometimes!
I got the World famous Bobbi Brown gel liner few days back but my oily lids made sure it doesnt work on me. And while returning it, the kind MUA suggested I try this. And I’m glad I did.
BOBBI BROWN Corrector ($23 + tax) : 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.
Available in 12 shades.
Packaging wise: it is a teeny tiny black round box with Bobbi Brown written on it. It also has a teensy mirror on the inside. Very light weight so great for travelling or stashing in your handbag.
My Experience with the product : Honestly, other than the ditzy makeup looks I do for the blog or parties, I’m usually clean faced. In the entire 2012, I have purchased one foundation MAC and have used it only a few times. But a concealer is something I really need because my under-eyes look hideous. For sure!! I have used this for about 2 weeks now and I must say I really like this guy. This is really creamy and you need a very little amount to dab under the eyes.
you need to dab a little from the inner corner of the eye to almost the end. Like shown below. I mostly use my ring finger but even brushes are great. I then dab-dab-dab to make it sink. I sometimes apply a wee bit of concealer on top but for this review I just used this corrector. Initially I found that I was going overboard with it maybe because it really matches my skin tone, that was making it look ashy but after a couple of times, I kinda got it right. it blends very easily so is not a hassle to work with. Although I found it to be a bit sticky, so I’d suggest you work with one eye at a time.
Other than being a bit expensive, I have no complaints about this product. I see myself using it often. 😀
TIP: moisturize your skin and under eyes well in advance and this product will work like a dream. A dry skin invites cakey application.
P.s : the pictures are not retouched and I’ve not even applied powder to show the real effects. I am NW20 in MAC

Sephora india doesn’t have Bobbi Brown?? But yoyve got Bourjois naa . Even that has a grt concealer. I want more Bourjois
Beena, it is awesome and perfect match for your skin….the quantity is very less na…..can i suggest something..try concealers from the Balm..my dark circles are like yours X 10 times..:-P..and since it works fro me, it will be great for you….Have you tried the bobbi brown’s shimmer brick ?? it’s one of my dream buys…:-)
Thanks Prachi 🙂 I havent found BALM in any of the malls for some reason. I want to get their matte wala palette too. Bobbi Brown’s shimmer brick is in my wishlist too. Also DIOR lipgloss. hehehe
Honestly?!!! I was just shocked to see the photos. IMO, if you are using a product to your heart’s content and if it lasts even 5 months, I think it’s value for money!! I wish it were available here. 🙁
Ooh really???/ I hope I shocked you in a good way 🙂 seriously, even I think the same about certain products. Concealers and eyeliners mein I never skimp. I might buy a sasta lipstick 🙂 Thanks for dropping by Nevedita 😀
Wow what a difference, it looks amazing. Love bobbi brown 🙂
Thanks so much Heidi. I like your name 🙂
This really seems to work..Ive never tried using a concealer though.. always scared it will look patchy and not match my skin
Thanks for dropping by Rajvi 🙂 I know finding a concealer is such a task. but I’d suggest you get yourself matched in a store to se what color matches you, then you can buy them online too!
Wow Beens!!! this works… 🙂
