Bobbi brown corrector review

So I have always had an issue with under my eyes, no matter how much sleep I get, dark bruise-like under eyes are a permanent fixture on my face. being a bit of a make-up noob I used to just pack on concealer to try and cover it up, resulting in a cakey-creasey mess. 

I had heard about the Bobbie brown corrector on a few blogs and it certainly piqued my interest, a product whose sole purpose is too rid those pesky bags? yes please! of course as soon as I saw the price (£18 from the BB website here) I did a little sob and turned away, I just couldn't justify it on a student budget. However, I then saw it on a blog sale for £7! I haven't had it for long so I can only really say my initial thoughts; firstly, what is it? well it is a pinkish toned product designed to wear under concealer to neutralise those dark circles. When it arrived I was astonished at how small it was! However when I came to use it I saw just how thick it was, it's not going to go anywhere fast. because it is so thick I prefer patting this into my under eye area using a finger, when I try and smooth it on I feel like I am dragging my eye an awful lot. It does do a very good job at neutralising my dark circles as I will show you (prepare yourself for this)...

As you can see I have a severe lack of make up on but let's just ignore that and focus on the corrector. This is just the corrector applied with no concealer and you can see the wonderful difference it has made, really brightens and lifts my eye area. If you are having trouble with dark under eyes then I would definitely give this a go. If you cringe a bit at the price like I did then I have heard that this palette by w7 is meant to be a good alternative, but having never used it I can't vouch for that.


  1. oo may have to try!


  2. Eye circles are the worst, if this product works for you that is great, sometimes it is so hard to cover up. I need to find a product that works for me, it's great you linked an alternative too! Thanks for this review!
