The Bobbi Brown Corrector £19.50 is a product I’ve read nothing but rave reviews for but until recently it was a product I’d never even tried but after loving the Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation so much, I decided I needed to try more of the Bobbi Brown base products. My skin is exceptionally pale.. so much so, it looks practically translucent under my eyes so I have dark circles even when I’m well rested so I rely on concealer to try and make my under eyes look a little more uniform and make me look a little less tired.
I’ve dabbled with colour correcting concealers in the past but to be completely honest I don’t really use them on a day to day basis as I usually always forget even though I do find them to be effective, especially when using a peachy or yellow shade to counteract dark circles or a green shade to counteract inflammation and redness.
There are currently 21 different shades available for the Corrector and I chose the palest shade which is Porcelain Bisque. Bobbi Brown describe their Corrector as a wakeup call for tired eyes to brighten and cover discolouration under the eyes utilising a pink or peach-based formula to neutralise undereye darkness.
The Bobbi Brown Corrector has a waterproof, sweat and humidity proof formula which offers longevity with a uniquely creamy-smooth texture for perfectly smooth coverage that’s easy to blend and won’t crease and is infused with skin conditioners to protect the delicate undereye area.
The Bobbi Brown Corrector in Porcelain Bisque is an amazing match for my skintone, and although it looks identical to my skintone above, my skin is even paler on my face so it covers my under-eye darkness perfectly without looking cakey or thick. I was a little worried that by using a corrector and a concealer together, it would make my under eyes look like they were caked in product but it’s amazingly lightweight which I didn’t expect.
To apply the corrector I like to use my ring fingers and warm it up slightly by pressing the two ring fingers together and then apply it in a dabbing motion until it’s been fully blended into my skin. For the days where I’m wanting a more natural minimal makeup look, I sometimes just use the Corrector without any concealer as I find that the Corrector not only corrects my darkness but it also offers a little coverage too so I don’t always have to use concealer which I love as I’m all for a streamlined makeup look when I’m short on time or I’m having a good skin day. I do think £19.50 is quite pricey for only 1.4grams of product but it’s definitely the best Corrector I’ve ever tried so for me it’s a product I will certainly repurchase and I can’t wait to try more from Bobbi Brown in 2017.
