Bobbi Brown Eye Corrector Review


The Bobbi Brown Eye Corrector is basically a concealer meant to give you extra coverage that promises to get rid of dark circles around your eye area. Have you tried it? Thoughts?





I bought this in Light Medium Bisque,which at the time looked like the best color for me. Although it looks beige in the pot, this is actually super-pale.if I use too much of it, I can end up with visible white patches under my eyes, so I really recommend trying this on in person before buying it: perhaps one of the slightly darker shades would’ve been better for me, although this is fine as long as it’s applied with a light hand.

(After)



Overall I found that this concealer didn't do wonders for me, in fact it was just so-so. It's a little on the thick side, and because I have dry skin it looked a bit cakey, even with just a small amount. I don't think I'll be purchasing this, however it's not the worst concealer out there. Because of it's thickness, I'm thinking you could use this for scars, acne or dark spots you would like to hide either on your face or body. But for my dark circles, I'll still be looking for the perfect product. You can purchase the Bobbi Brown Corrector at Sephora for $22.

  1. you may have better luck with the peach shades that are offered in the corrector. i have very purply-blue circles and the woman at the bobbi brown counter explained that pink tones (the bisque shades) would just leave my circles looking grayish/ashy, but that the peach tones would cancel out under eye discoloration because orange cancels out blue and purple. she tried 'light bisque' on one eye and 'light peach' on other, and there was a definite difference between the two-light peach by far did a much better job. good luck

  2. Hey I purchased this product in Holt Renfrew where a Bobbi Brown rep. helped me out. It is not meant to be worn on its own, the way she described it to me was as a primer. Think of a black wall being your undereye shade which you want to paint over. Instead of putting the paint (concealer) directly over the black wall (undereye) you are going to put down a primer (corrector) to block out that black pigment so that the colour does not show through the paint (concealer).
    This I believe will help in realizing how great the product is, I was told not to wear it on its own because it will be too pinky looking on its own therefore your eye is not complete with just the corrector, think of it as a primer and the concealer is your finishing act, like a fondation. Hope that helps and let me know if you like it after you try it in this way :)

  3. Hi.
    If i have understood correctly, this isn't a CONCEALER. This is a CORRECTOR and what it is supposed to do is hide the dark circles enough that when you add CONCEALER on top of it your under eye area will look beautiful and your dark circles have vanished! :o)
    So you will need a concealer on top of this corrector. :o) And of course some sort of powder too...
    I hope you understand what i am trying to explain..i am from Finland and my english ain't that great! :o)
