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)!
