I love how Bobbi makes everything look so incredibly easy!
The new Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit is a new breed of Bobbi’s popular concealer. The formula is improved and not only conceals your under eye woes but also maintains your skin’s moisture levels so your concealer always looks fresh.
Here are my thoughts on her new concealer!
A creamy concealer and setting powder duo!
I started out my concealer life hating Bobbi’s concealer. I purchased one of her palettes and felt like it creased rather badly and that the formula was a tad too heavy.
I tossed it aside.
And suddenly it got a new lean on life when I tried it again. The more you use her concealer, the more you’ll appreciate it and that’s what happened to me. At first it feels a little too thick, a little too creamy, a little too heavy…but you have to use it a few times to understand how the formula works.
The Creamy Concealer Kit pretty much mimics any concealer you’d find at your local Bobbi Brown counter. It’s thick, it’s emollient, it’s extra creamy, and it’s pigmented. The formula is ideal for those with very dark circles and those who suffer from drier under eyes. It pretty much conceals all my woes without issues. I admit I cheat on it alot but I’ve always come back to it and love it because it simply works.
Part of the appeal of the Creamy Concealer Kit is the size and the setting powder included. I ended up purchasing the shade Sand which includes a yellow based pressed powder, kinda like Skin Food Salmon Powder that I love so much. The size of the palette is kinda fun as it looks like a small contact lenses holder. It’s $32 for .21 oz compared to the normal concealers/correctors at $22 for the same price but you have to take into consideration the fact you’re also getting powder with the compact.
I loved the powder. It’s a pressed version of Skin Food’s Salmon Powder to me. The yellow base does a great job of neutralizing dark circles and setting the concealer for all day wear, literally, seriously, Bobbi’s concealer goes no where when it’s set correctly. It wears long and strong all day long.
If you have serious darkness, finer lines, puffiness, or you’re eyes are just looking very tried, Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Concealer Kit is for you!
Sadly, the kit is a bit messy. I never had any problems with my concealer palette which also has powder but the smaller size of this palette makes for a mess when combing cream and powder in one place. The powder kicks up a fair bit of dust which ends up in the powder and becomes messy.
The palettes features a mirror which I appreciate but I have no place to go with excess concealer. There isn’t any rim on the well to remove excess from my brush nor can I wipe it on the inner lid of the palette (which I prob would have done if the mirror wasn’t there). Since the concealer is extra creamy I prefer having some place to blend it into my brush and a rim of some sort would be ideal for that.
Needless to say after two uses the palette is already starting to become messy.
- Those with dark circles in need of a pigmented concealer to cover them.
- Those in need of hydrating concealer.
- Those who need a heavier concealer for concealing it all!
- Those who desire a lightweight concealer.
- Those who do not have major problems under their eyes.
- Those who aren’t interested in having their powder and cream products in one very small space.
Although packaging has some quirks I’m still happy with this purchase overall. Prior to this a pressed powder has never been available from Bobbi Brown directly or at least not to my knowledge. I’ve only been privy to the powder in a concealer palette that I’ve purchased twice from QVC. I don’t mind loose powder for setting but I find the pressed is easier use.
Overall, if you’re still searching for your HG concealer still, this might be one to check out.
