Bobbi Brown Corrector & Concealer Kit
Bobbi Brown Corrector & Concealer Kit

Bobbi Brown Corrector & Creamy Concealer

Bobbi’s taken her number one beauty secret and made it even better. “This new formula gives you quick, perfect coverage. It’s rich and creamy without being thick—so it goes on easily and blends smoothly with minimal effort.” — Bobbi Brown

Reformulated to deliver perfect coverage, the new Correctors and Creamy Concealers erase dark circles as only Bobbi Brown can. Bobbi believes that the secret to covering dark circles lies in a unique two-step approach. She starts with pink- or peachtoned Corrector to brighten and neutralize the purple and green tones of under eye circles. For pale skin, she recommends the lighter Corrector shades starting with Porcelain Bisque. For deeper skin tones, she recommends the Medium to Dark Bisque and Peach Shades. Next, Bobbi uses yellow-toned Creamy Concealer to lighten and blend the under eye area with the rest of the face.

It’s texture is to be a balance of shiny and long-lasting (3 hours), have a “second skin effect” such that it becomes liquid when it touches the lips. The pigments are encapsulated in glass, which are supposed to make the colors truer and more vivid. Though no price was listed, it sounds like it will be in the upper $30s range (KissKiss being $31 and Rouge G being $46).
