Bobbi Brown Corrector (Bisque)

Before (I have pretty dark circles, but I don't have eye bags. The picture can't really capture how dark my circles are without any make up but you can clearly see a dark shadow under my eyes in reality)
After BB Corrector.
After MAC Studio Finish Concealer SPF 35 (NC20,my foundation is NC25)

If I apply this without the BB corrector, it does brighten up my under-eye area but the shadow still exists. I think this happens to a lot of people and the reason is that you need a corrector to even out the shadow first...! Because everyone's dark circles colours differ, you need to pick the right shade that suits you :)
I'm only using the MAC concealer on top to brighten up the area because the BB corrector doesn't have a brightening effect. I'm going to get the Bobbi Brown Highlighter Pen soon when there's an event at Murale (@ oakridge & I loveee it there!)
I was deciding between the BB highlighter pen or the YSL touche eclat... I read reviews about people complaining about the touche eclat applicator becomes smelly after a while.. and my friend recommended me to get the BB one so I guess I will stick with that :)

How I apply these:
I simply use a concealer brush and apply the product to my under eye area, and pat it with my fingers afterwards so it blends into my skin. Don't apply too much at a time, you don't want your undereye area to get cakey! Set it with a loose powder to set it so it doesn't crease/ come off. I use my Shu Uemura loose powder and it's not cakey at all because their powder is sooo finely milled. You can also use the Benefit loose powder for eyes to set it... I forgot what it's called =P


  1. I didn't know that about the YSL Touche Eclat, I thought it was just mine! And boy does it stink, haha ;P

  2. LOL really ... good thing I didn't decide to buy it yet O_O Can you still use it? thats so sad.. it's so expensive too -_-"

  3. I've got to say that I truly find it the wonder product it's purported to be - "eight hours of sleep in a tube" is right! :D I can still use it, it would have to literally burn my skin off for me to pay that much for something and then not use it XD

  4. oh wow really... haha yeah you can probably use it with another brush but not directly apply it to your skin right XD weird how it gets smelly o_o
