bobbi brown corrector

Bobbi Brown Corrector in Light Bisque: £17*

I'm the first to admit I suffer from dark circles. Nothing really seems to help regarding skincare, mainly because the darkness is in actual fact visible veins underneath the thin skin on my eye. So because of this I need some decent coverage with a lot of staying power. Concealers mostly just lighten the area which in turn can cause the skin to look very ashy and weird under my eye which makes the problem more obvious. Walking around Selfridges a few weeks ago, Lily talked me into trying this as a possible solution and I can firmly say I haven't gone a day without using it since.

The shade I have, Light Bisque, is quite pink which counteracts the blueish green veins I need to cover. When correcting colours on your skin you need to go to the opposite of the colour wheel to balance out your problem area- ie. if you have redness, you use a green corrector and so on. The corrector is thick but creamy so easy to work with. I apply it before my concealer so that the colour is then matched up more with the rest of my face. After this I use a setting powder under the eye so I don't get any dreaded creasing. It would take a miracle for my problem to be truly solved, but I look a LOT less tired when I use this so it's the best thing I could recommend really!

Have you tried this? Do you suffer from any problems like mine? What's your favourite Bobbi Brown product?

  1. I use this, exactly the same shade too!
    It is by far the best product I have found for combating dark circles. I love bobbi brown stuff as they have a great range of shades (often "drugstore" concealer is too orange for me. I don't use a setting powder as I find it looks too heavy on me, but hardly ever get creasing so its ok... Only downside is that its rather expensive for a student like me so I have to stock up with birthday and Christmas presents! :)

  10. I have this corrector in Bisque, does great things under my eyes but I still get a greyish zone lower down, like where my undereye meets my cheek, if that makes sense, not sure if this is just the nature of the contours of my face or whether I need a lighter shade. what brush do you use with this product? x

  12. I'm addicted to this! I suffer from really bad dark circles and I use this + mac pro longwear concealer (and they're still not fully covered, so you can imagine how bad they are...) I wrote a blogpost about it 2 weeks ago :)

  13. Oooh this sounds fantastic! Expensive but if it does the job then it works out better than trying rubbish cheaper alternatives xxx

  15. This sounds like a really good product - I get dark circles too, although currently I'm really happy with the Vichy dermablend sample I got in my Glossybox! x

  17. I look tired all the time and my current concealer isn't really doing anything to hide it. This sounds like a really good solution!

  23. Totally agree, I've used this everyday since I've bought it. Think it works really well and you don't need a lot. I set mine using the loose Mac Prep and Prime powder, works a treat.
    Enjoy reading your blog.

  24. This sounds great! I have dark circles from veins as well and people are constantly saying I look tired! It's so frustrating and kind of rude! Want to try this and get them off my back haha! x

  25. The darkness under my eyes is hereditary but it's my absolute nemesis! I've must have tried at least 30 different products in all but this is next on my list!
