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.
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.
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.
If you’ve used this product, let us know in the comments how it works for you. Maybe we can help each other out.
