Hit Pan #7 | Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit




My fiancé, then boyfriend, bought this Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit in Sand from a Cosmetic Company Outlet when he visited the States.  I made sure he got a dictionary-thick wish list before he left, and out of the million items, he managed to pick up a few discounted gems for me.  Thankful.  I have two shades of this old-style concealer kit, one in Sand - featured in this post - and another one in Beige (slightly more pink tone, similar depth).

What it is.  The upper layer has a tiny mirror, and a pan of Creamy Concealer in Sand.  The lower layer has a wide-hole sieve divider and a pot of Sheer Finish Loose Powder in Pale Yellow.  A small powder puff in a small portable clear pouch came with the kit, but it doesn't fit in the lower compartment.  Hence I store that elsewhere.

How I use it.  I like to either use my finger, or a synthetic dome eye blending brush (Everyday Minerals Dome Blending Eye Brush - mentioned in previous post).  The concealer blends very smoothly and covers up decently.  After concealing, I set the under-eye area with the loose powder underneath.  Sometimes I use the blending fluffy brush, sometimes a sponge, depending which is available/nearby.

How I like it.  You have probably heard hundreds of people raving about this concealer, so I'll just keep it short and sweet.  Basically I adore its coverage, the creaminess and the staying power.  If set with the powder, it stays put all day.  I particularly enjoy the loose powder, which has a light tint, and brightens the under-eye slightly.  Very fine and smooth and not heavy/thick.

The creamy concealer kit is now repackaged with the powder pressed, and two pans come in the same layer.  I am not sure about the pressed powder as I really enjoy the loose version (although I admit it is messy to travel with).  I still have the 'Beige' shade to use up before I have to repurchase though, so that's a good thing~  On the other hand, I am tempted to get my hands on their stick foundation and correctors - my friend W.A. uses the stick foundation as concealer and praises it forever, and my friend Sam did an evil (=positive) review on the corrector - link.

Have you tried the Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer, or their corrector, or their base products?  Tell me your favourite Bobbi Brown product below - or your favourite concealer(s)!

  1. Thanks for the review! I am always looking for great concealer. I wonder how it compares to the famous bobbi brown corrector

    1. I don't have the corrector! Perhaps you can head over to Sam's blog (the commentor below) and ask her for her opinion, she has (had) both!

  2. I have the pressed powder and it's so crap! Wish they continued to sell it with the loose powder xx

    1. @Sam, I think they still sell the individual concealer pot? I really like the loose powder (not good to carry along), but it is really good quality!

  3. Great review! I wish this worked for me. I guess because I've got wrinkles under my eyes that the concealer seems to emphasize it and the powder doesn't help. :(

    BTW, THANK YOU SO SO MUCH for the postcard!! I just got it yesterday when I got my replacement mail key. *HUGS* love you sooo much! Muahs~

  4. I LOVED this concelor.. I too had the same issue as Tao, but I found that if I put the powder down first, and then the cream base, it worked perfectly. The only problem is I can no longer find it at the counter. :(

    1. @Mouthwash, I believe they have repackaged it into a wider oval case, where the concealer and the pressed powder lay side by side. Otherwise there should be the single pan for sale?

      Your trick seems very nice: powder before the concealer, I can try that when I have worse fine lines. Thx :)
