Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Review!

Bobbi Brown have recently launched their new Creamy Concealer kit, as well as a new Concealer and Corrector.  I was invited along to the press launch of this new concealer kit to try out the new product and we were given a master class by the Head of Artistry, Paul Herrington, on how best to use it!

2 The event itself was great – we drank champagne, snacked on the most incredible jerk chicken and had a good play with the products and I got to talk to other bloggers and journalists which was nice!
 
They filmed this video below and I appear in it about four times which is quite surreal, but funny also!  Have a watch and see me learning how to apply the product and being made up!

Anyway, on to the concealer.  I was matched to the shade ‘Porcelain’, and each kit contains a creamy concealer and a sheer finish pressed powder which basically blots any oiliness after applying the concealer, giving your skin a matte look.  The concealer really is quite creamy and does tend to be smudge-able in warmer weathers so the powder is perfect for touching up and blotting any excess oil.  The compact also includes a mirror in the lid.

What I think:  I can definitely see a difference when wearing this and not.  My eyes do feel and look more awake when its on and it does a great job of concealing blemishes.  The only downfall I can find in this is the fact that it is SO creamy – on a hot day this has smudged below my eyes, bringing all my black eyeliner down with it (leaving me with panda eyes).  I suspect this will be absolutely perfect for autumn and winter but I will still be wearing this throughout summer – just very lightly on my eye bags and blemishes, because it does a fab job of covering them.

What’s your favourite concealer?  Can you see the difference?

  1. Great review! That stuff looks amazing! I don't really wear liner under my eyes so I could probably get away with it, without becoming Pandafied.
    The event looks fab!

  2. Thank you for doing this review Katie! I've been meaning to buy this a long time ago, but I wasnt too sure about 23.50 for the Duo eyes concealor! I think its worth a try :)

  3. I use Bobbi's corrector then, MAC's Select Coverup as it has more staying power. I then finish up with Laura Mercier's finishing powder...these 3 don't move an inch :-)

  4. I've been wanting to try Bobbi Brown products for quite a while & now I have a gel eyeliner in Granite Ink and an eyeshadow in Taupe 04. I've been wanting to try one of the concealers because I'm using Make Up For Ever Full Cover, but it's kind of drying (even though I use a really great organic eye cream!) I also love using RMS Beauty Un-Cover up in 11, but it doesn't mask the dark circles as much I would like it to! xxx

  6. This looks so good, I could definitely do with some help concealing dark circles atm. I like that it now comes with a pressed powder. Need to get colour matches asap! x

  9. Love you review!

    I've being using the old corrector and concealer which is a bit cakey and can look a bit dry, can't wait to try the new formulation, thanks for your review.

  10. This really looks fantastic on you, I can see a difference! May have to hunt this down when at bluewater although reading jollybeachang's comment has made me tempted to get the MAC pot I was hoping to buy..

  11. Concealers do play a very important role in these days as the stress is getting dark circles in most peoples eyes.It is important to make sure that the color is very suited to the facial skin tone.
