I’ve briefly mentioned the cult classic, Bobbi Brown Corrector** here on my blog as a reference when talking about another product I use under my eyes. So many people love this corrector and swear by it that I thought for sure it would be foolproof. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get this product to work for me.
Bobbi Brown Dark Peach Corrector, $33.00**
The formula creases on me almost instantly and then settles into fine lines not too long after that. Even if I can manage to apply concealer and set it with powder before I see any creases, it only takes about 10 minutes before they inevitably show up. According to the Bobbi Brown website, dark peach corrects brown/grey/greenish discoloration. I do think it does a nice job of masking my discoloration and I never had to pile it on to get that result.
After I had trouble with the shade peach, I switched to this shade (dark peach) to see if I was using a shade that was too light for me. I find that sometimes when products are too light, they accentuate issues you can’t see as well in a good shade match. It turns out that the shade was not the issue. Although dark peach is a better shade for correcting my darkness than peach, I still noticed the creasing. For reference, my best foundation matches are Estee Lauder Double wear 4W4 Hazel and MAC Studio Fix Fluid C8.
I’ve tried using less product and also applying extra moisturizer under my eyes shortly before application. I’ve even tried using different application tools and my fingers, but nothing keeps it from creasing and settling into fine lines. It sank into fine lines I didn’t even realize I had until I used this product.
This corrector is petrolatum based, which I thought would be perfect for my dry skin, but maybe that is what makes it move around. My moisturizer has mineral oil in it also, so maybe together there is too much slip.
With 16 shades, Bobbi Brown does have the largest shade range of color corrector that I’ve personally seen. I do think the range needs to be expanded for deeper skin tones. If you can find a shade that works for you, I definitely seem to be in the minority with my creasing issue. I have seen plenty of people use this without issues in videos and the reviews on retailer sites are overall positive.
The Bobbi Brown Corrector (in pot form) is $32.00 at Sephora.**
UPDATE February 8, 2022: In early 2022 Bobbi Brown released the Skin Corrector Stick which also retails for $32.00**. The new corrector stick is only available in 12 shades so there are some shades left out. On the upside, at the deeper end of the shade range, they had added two shades in very deep peach and rich peach. On the downside, several shades on the lighter end of the spectrum are not in the new range. The shades that are not listed in the new formula are porcelain bisque, porcelain peach, light to medium bisque, light to medium peach, peach bisque, and med dark bisque. Since this is a new formula it is possible that one of the new shades has taken over for something in the other range, but I can’t say for sure. I have not heard any news that the original pot form is getting discontinued, so hopefully, if you use one of these shades you will continue to be able to enjoy it.
UPDATE May 31, 2023 (my review of the Bobbi Brown Skin Corrector Stick): To see swatches of the shade Dark Peach, click here. I have dry skin and the Bobbi Brown Skin Corrector Stick wears comfortably without drying me out. The brand claims that it “delivers immediate moisture for smoother, plumper, healthy-looking skin” and I don’t really notice that. I don’t think it’s drying at all, but I don’t specifically notice looking any smoother or plumped. I do notice that it looks better when I pair it with satin or dewy finish concealers (e.g. Dior Forever Correct, Armani Luminous Silk) rather than matte finishes (e.g. Estee Lauder Double Wear, MAC Studio Fix 24HR). At times with matte finishes it can look slightly patchy if I’m not careful. However, since I prefer satin and dewy finish concealers these days, that isn’t a deal breaker for me. It is something to keep in mind if you like matte concealers. Just remember that I have dry skin so my starting point may be different than yours.
I draw this directly on my face from the stick and the formula melts easily. There is no dragging or tugging at the delicate eye area or on the larger parts of my face. It doesn’t cause any extra creasing with any of the concealers I’ve used it with and it doesn’t change wear time for better or worse. The brand doesn’t make a specific coverage claim other than to say it is buildable. To me, it is medium coverage. I don’t think that in most cases correctors need to be full coverage because it’s a step for neutralizing the darkness rather than completely covering it. Your concealer worn on top of it is where you will get the actual coverage. So while I think its coverage is sufficient for my needs, there are some people with intense darkness that need full coverage for both their corrector and concealer. For them, this will likely fall short. I really like this corrector and I’m glad I gave it a chance. Overall, it works worlds better for me than the potted version although, the pot does have better coverage.

Ah! This is one of those classic products I’ve always been curious about but just didn’t take the plunge in getting. Thank you for sharing. It’s rare that a cream corrector/concealer stays put under my eyes. It sounds like this is guaranteed to not work for me either.

I was on a mission to try the classic products before the new creative team changed any of the formulas that Bobbi Brown, the makeup artist, created for the brand. I just kept thinking I must be doing something wrong 😂 but sometimes things just don’t work for everyone.

Exactly. It was just like that for me with the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. Everyone raved about it and I thought being in a liquid form should be fine, but it was too creamy and moved on me.
