If you're anything like me, then you'll probably need cement to cover your dark under-eye circles. Fortunately, Bobbi Brown has got us covered. Literally.


COLOR MATCH

Bobbi Brown Corrector comes in sixteen shades to suit everyone's dark circle needs. That means we can all rock the well-rested fa├žade. The most difficult part of using this product is finding the right shade. I highly recommend you go to your local Bobbi Brown counter and test them out or have a Bobbi specialist help you. I don't recommend color-matching yourself based on the online chart. The wrong corrector can actually emphasize your dark circles or make them look green ... even if the color generally matches your skin tone.


APPLICATION + BLENDABILITY

Once you have the Corrector, it's all about the three questions of application: When? Where? How?

When?
Apply the corrector before foundation and/or concealer. Once your dark circles are reduced, the foundation or concealer will help your skin all appear as one color.

Where?
Try only to apply the product to the dark areas under your eyes.

How?
Because this is on the stickier side, I've found it's easiest to work with it once it has melted a bit with the heat of my fingers. Give the product a good swirl with your fourth finger and dab it on to your dark circles.


COVERAGE

Although it doesn't completely conceal my dark circles, the Corrector is incredibly high coverage and definitely helps eliminate them.

FINISH

This product does have a tendency to crease, so you may want to remove excess product by gently rolling a cotton swab over the creased area. The Corrector will dry with a tacky finish, so I recommend either covering it with a foundation/concealer or lightly dusting it with powder.

 

WORTH THE HYPE?

Yes. Even on my no-makeup days, I tend to sneak this on right under my eyes. On the nights I haven't slept enough, it helps make me look like I've gotten ample sleep -- nice and awake. I've even inadvertently convinced several friends to pick up their own mini-compacts (just by putting this on in front of them). I've already repurchased this... so yes, yes and yes.
