As of this week, I am no longer a Bobby Brown virgin. I’ve got no idea why I’d never bought from the brand before, but I don’t think anything really stood out to be until now. And now, I am the proud owner of the under eye corrector thanks to weeks of reading hundreds of blog reviews (yes ok I know there’s no need for another one but sorry it had to be done) and seeing people literally rave about it. I suffer from particularly bad dark circles under my eyes and although the Collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer in medium does a decent job, it just wasn’t quite good enough.
Anyway I went to the lovely lady at my local Bobby Brown counter who stripped me of my current under eye makeup so my dark circles were on view to the whole of John Lewis (cheers for that) and then worked her magic with the corrector. Basically, if you don’t know, the colours in it work against the blue’s and purples of under eye circles to neutralise the skin and take the dark pigments away. Pop a normal concealer or a very light layer of your usual foundation over the top (the corrector is a very peachy colour so looks a bit un-natural on it’s own) and the results were fabulous. Apologies for the scary before and after pictures....
(before, and coming to you with DEEP apologies for my eyebrows, they were about to be waxed!!)
(after, and yes I know I look paler but the light had changed. Please note my lesser dark circles!)
Anyway I can tell you I was suitably impressed, and although I won’t be turning my back on my Lasting Perfection concealer anytime soon, this is up there as one of my favourite products for the job. As well as a concealer over the top, I’ve been enjoying popping a illuminating concealer (along the lines of the Touch Éclat) over the top of the corrector which gives a lovely finish too, three that I have been switching between are by Collection 2000, Sleek, and my latest edition from Vivo. I’ve popped swatches below but if you want to see any more in-depth reviews on these let me know!!

Does anyone else use the Bobby Brown corrector as their miracle product?
