This is another item that I use for my foundation. If you deal with raccoon eyes like I do, this is a must have item. You can use a concealer if your eyes are not super dark, but if you are anything like me you will need to bust out a corrector.
A corrector does its magic by blending with the color under your eyes to counterbalance what is there. Think color wheel – yellow + blue = green. If you are trying to counter green or blue tones then you will need their opposite of peach or pink. I found this article very helpful on picking what shades I would need to get.
Wakeup call for tired eyes. Corrector is pink- or peach-based to neutralize under-eye darkness and is designed to be used before Creamy Concealer. New and improved formula is long-wearing and brightens dark circles with quick, just-right coverage that’s easy to blend and won’t crease. And since great makeup starts with healthy skin, Corrector is infused with skin conditioners to protect the delicate under-eye area.
What it Does
The compact is fairly standard with a flip up lid with a decent mirror inside. The texture is extremely creamy and a little bit goes a very long way. There is .5 oz of product and this should last you for good while if you are not overly generous. You have 12 shades to pick from, 6 peach and 6 pink. If they sell this locally to you, you can have them match what color you would need at the counter. Failing that, just get the color closest to what you normally get and cross your fingers.
The actual use of this product works very well. It is very delicate and blends nicely into my foundation. Within minutes I have lost my cast member on Walking Dead look and have gone back to looking human. I have had issues with creasing in the past with other correctors and was hesitate in using this initially. Put this on with a concealer brush, patted with my finger and then followed up with a light amount of brightening powder (the creamy texture lets it blend right in) and I instantly lost my haggard look as well as no accompanying creasing!
I found that this would not completely cover up the darkness under my eyes but would come close enough. To completely get rid of darkness Bobbi Brown Cosmetics suggests using their Creamy Concealer as a companion product but any standard concealer will work just fine as well. I am very fond with combining this with Hard Candy Glamoflauge right now.
Worth the Price?
You will usually find this for right around $25 and is really only worth it if you have an issue with dark eyes. If this is one of your problem areas though, then this is well worth it.
