Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Review

For today’s concealer post I’ll be spotlighting Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Concealer!

Although I had a little trouble with Bobbi Brown’s Concealer Palette I must say that I had no such woes with Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Concealer. I have this in the lightest shade which is Porcelain. The color sports both beige, pink, and yellow tones which are extremely flattering to my medium-fair skin and do a superior job of covering up dark circles, fine lines, and extra baggage.

The formula is extremely emollient and moisturizing so much so that you may find it a bit too thick for your liking however using a concealer brush for application helps a whole lot. I really loved how wonderfully moisturizing the formula was and I think it’s completely suitable and an absolute god sent for anyone that’s 30 or over. The formula sports some key benefits such as being extremely creamy, thick, and pigmented. The thickness of the product accounts for it’s moisturizing benefits and although at first it may be a tad bit difficult to blend once heated you should have no problem with application.

The concealer is very long wearing and waterproof. I had no problem with creasing or caking and the product just looked simply flawless on and successfully made my eyes look younger and refreshed. This comes in 12 shades so you’re sure to find a match for your tone.

At $22 USD the price tag isn’t too bad either in my opinion for the quality of the product and the very long wear you can get out of it however you might worry about the size. The compact is tiny however since you only need a very tiny bit to cover up your problem areas you can easily get a year out of a single compact or more.

Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer has successfully created a good, solid concealer that delivers!

Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model.

    Finally one that is Muse approved!!!
    I don’t have any Bobbi Brown yet, but I must go get this…I also must check out the Bobbi Brown section of my CCO.

    BTW, did you hear the rumors of a Hello Kitty/MAC collabo???
    Absolute fabulousness overload! I would get two of everything in that collection just for the packaging!!!

  • Decorative Diva

    A year’s worth of concealer for $22 sounds like a pretty good deal to me 😉

  • Cinammon

    Might have to try this out! I usually only put concealer to hide my dark circles and i’ve only ever used MAC but i found out it had a very annoying habit of sinking into lines i never even knew i had! So i stopped using it.

    Instead what i do is mix my foundation with sweatproof sunblock and it doesn’t move anywhere until i wipe it off!

  • lolita_riot

    Ive been eyeing this ont he site! but for some reason I thought it came with powder too. I think I might have to get it…

  • rocketqueen

    OOH do you think I could wear that shade? Gorgeous! Btw, the NVEY concealer review is up over at my place!

  • Paopao

    Hi Muse!

    I have the concealer kit, at first I didn’t like it, but now I think it’s a great camouflage for spots 🙂

    Lots of hugs!

    PaoPao the birthday girl!

  • rocketqueen

    Btw did you manage to get my brushes from CF? Just wanted to check, planning my budget here! :-*

  • Bianca

    Tonight I’m off to Paris looking for some good beauty stuff! So excited!!

    I know it’s not here yet, but I wanted to wish you a good weekend after all!

  • the Muse

    tee hee Tammy 🙂 Took me a second there didn’t it?

    I heart BB CCO! So cheap and wonderful!

    I did indeed hear that. I absolutely need a case of everything lol!

    It’s so wrong to have quality makeup mixed up with hello kitty! Stuff like that should be illegal lol!

  • the Muse

    hello Alyssia 🙂

    I never used mac concealer..go figure! I once had a MA test it on me and same problem..felt drying and sunk into my lines!

    Good idea!

  • the Muse

    hello lolita_riot!

    It does 🙂 They have two versions…one is the creamy concealer and one has the powder. The powder is great for setting the product as it’s very fine milled. I don’t have that one but do have the bb concealer compact which has the powder!

    Not sure how old you are but the powder is actually good for older eyes as it’s so fine you barely notice it’s on and it doesn’t crease up or make eyes appear older!

  • the Muse

    hi Paopao!

    Me too. At first I didn’t love it either but I’m grown to love it.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!! =-)

    Spoil yourself 😉

    Have you tried the creamy concealer kit? It is awesome! Sometimes I use it in lieu of foundation and it provides flawless coverage with a bonus translucent powder that sets the concealer

  • YM

    hi muse

    ah you have just activated the concealer lemming in me! i have always avoided them because of blending issues..

    is this very very blendable or does it sort of set if you don’t blend too quickly?

    also have you found that applying powder over it to become cakey?

    another thing, do you think this is suitable for “light” face coverage instead of spot/patch coverage?


  • YM

    ack! i don’t know how i ended up posting this under the “cream concealer” post – but my comments and questions are for the Corrector Concealer product –



  • the Muse

    hi yin

    hehe 🙂 sorry ’bout that 🙂

    No thankfully it doesn’t set quickly. It stays quite creamy for a while. If you hate the way concealers quickly dry before you have a sec to blend you might want to invest in the Dior Booster Pen. That’s very good stuff!

    I don’t apply powder over any of my concealers as I am 30 so that days I could do that are long gone. I fear when I attempt it that it ages my eyes by 20 years. So I leave it be without setting with powder. Sadly I can only guess but I think if you use a little teeny tiny bit of powder it may be ok but not too much otherwise it’ll look gross, especially if your eyes are dry.

    Again, sadly I don’t use concealer on my face only under my eyes…but hmmm….not face coverage no as it’s way too heavy.

    Hope this helps lovie 🙂

    I REALLY REALLY wanted this stuff to work, lol! The other day I picked up the creamy concealer kit that comes with the powder. Everyone raves about this stuff but it’s just not working for me 🙁 I don’t know if I’m prepping with too much eye cream or maybe not enough but without the powder this stuff slides into my creases and with the powder it looks like a dry cakey mess. Sadly I am still searching for my HG concealer, sigh! At least I only paid half price for it on eBay!

    • the Muse

      aw sorry to hear it jersey girl keep trying…I hated it at first but now it’s my HG!
