Although I have bought many of the concealer/correctors on offer from Bobbi Brown, I had never tried her original creamy concealer. Now that the formula has been tweaked I thought it a good time to try. Available on its own or in a kit that includes a setting powder, I opted for the slim line kit (£23.50).
The product is meant to “blend easily to instantly cover, lift and brighten dark circles. It also helps maintain skin's moisture levels for a smooth, virtually line-less look. Fuss-free pressed powder sets concealer for long-lasting wear”.
I bought the lightest shade Porcelain, which is the only kit that comes with a white setting powder (the others have pale yellow).
The concealer is a good match for my under eye area.
The concealer is very thick, I expected it to go on almost opaque however whilst the coverage is good its not as full as I was expecting. It blends quite well.
However, it makes the area look dry and highlights my lines. I have tried several eye creams with this, including the BB hydrating eye cream and I still cannot get this to look good. I find this a very aging concealer for the under eyes.

In term's of the powder, I find the white an odd choice as it lightens the whole area and makes my dark circle more apparent. I find the powder drying and the concealer still creases with this on top, I actually think this powder if far better used as an under brow highlighter.
Suffice to say this was not a good buy for me, I have since given up on this and have recently bought the Dior Nude concealer which I’ll tell you about soon.
