Review |Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer

Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit in Ivory and powder in Pale Yellow


The Bobbi Brown creamy concealer is one of the most talked about products in the beauty world. Everybody raves about this and the BB corrector, so two months ago I gave in and bought it. I was looking for a concealer that would cover pimples, red spots and other imperfections, while being creamy enough to use to cancel out redness. I was not originally planning on using this for my under eye area.

I bought the creamy concealer kit, that comes with both powder and concealer. Honestly I wish I hadn't. I have hardly used the powder as I find that it breaks me out. The reason I bought the kit was that they didn't have the concealer in my shade in single form, and as I was eager to try it - I gave in.

The first thing I want to mention is how little product you get. You only get 1.4 grams! To compare I looked at my  MAC Studio Finish Concealer, where you get 7 grams. That and the fact that it is very expensive may be the main reason I will probably not repurchase this product. Although it is lovely under the eyes, it does not cover blemishes or redness that well. Sometimes it creases under my eyes if I don't use a powder,  but the powder it comes with just makes it look dry and cakey. I have tried it other powders though, which works just fine. Sometimes I can even get away with not using a powder, which is great as I want my makeup to look as natural as possible.

As mentioned above, this is not a full coverage concealer. It may have a bit more coverage than your average liquid concealer, however it is not good for covering acne scaring or those annoying red spots. It also has a tendency to just slip off the blemish. However, if you are looking for an under eye concealer and you are willing to pay, I do recommend this. When I am using this on my skin, (not my under eye area) I have noticed that it can build up quite quickly and that it has a tendency to cling to any dry patches you might have, so keep that in mind.

So guys, do you have any thoughts on the Bobbi Brown Concealer?

    1. Yeah, it is a decent concealer, but not worth the price in my opinion. :)
