It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concentrate Review & Swatches

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concentrate ($38) is a full coverage corrector/concealer that contains some rather awesome ingredients like coffee extract, hylauronic acid, peptides, cucumber, avocado, and hydrolyzed collagen. Being rather a diehard fan of It Cosmetics Bye Bye Concealer I was all about trying this new corrector formula but a little worried after my recent foray with the new Tarte BB Tinted Undereye Corrector. Apparently correctors and I have issues.

Let’s take a look at It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concentrate and see if I love it.

Even though It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concentrate is marketed as a corrector you can get away with using it as a concealer product as well if the Light, Medium, or Rich shade selection suits your skin tone.

This comes in a tiny jar with a lovely little brush for application and a stand much like the one that It Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness comes with. I think the packaging is so similar to Bye Bye Redness that I automatically assumed this might be a creamy formula however, it is a dense cream. Don’t get nervous when I say dense as it is creamy and very, very emollient.

I think it’s a formula you’re either going to love or hate. I find there are people in the I love, can’t live without Bye Bye Concealer camp and there are folks in the wow I really dislike Bye Bye Concealer camp. It’s likely you’ll enjoy Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concentrate if you already use and like Bye Bye Concealer but it’s kinda of a different format so you have to take that into consideration prior to a purchase.

The Medium shade runs a bit too peach for me so the light was the better match. I typically use Medium in Bye Bye Concealer and Light happens to be close to it in Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector. The peach in Medium is a better corrector though as the peachiness will diffuse the appearance of darkness under eyes.

Light and Medium

This is FULL coverage so it will definitely tackle the most troublesome of under eye woes such as dark circles, discolorations like purple or blue circles and even shadows.

I guess in terms of formula this most reminds me of Bobbi Brown’s Concealer orΒ Bare Minerals Correcting Concealer but it isn’t as creamy. It’s a bit dense to the touch but it warms up to a soft, emollient texture. It blends very easily under my drier eyes and once patted into place it sets for very strong, long wear. It doesn’t crease into finer lines nor does it cake. The smooth, soft finish looks fairly incredible. I use my E.L.F. Concealer Brush to dot it on and proceed to blend it out with a kabuki brush to a picture perfect airbrushed finish. I set with a small amount of Skin Food Dark Circle Powder but I find it wears just as well without. I think if you have oily eyes it should prove just as wearable as although emollient the texture clings to skin very well so it won’t wear away easily due to oiliness. Of course, the brush that comes with it actually is just as great as my beloved E.L.F. Concealer Brush! It’s soft yet has dense bristles works great to brush the concealer under eyes and you can just gently pat into place after!

As with all concealer products you have to prep well prior to application especially if you have drier skin. I use plenty of eye cream and a smidge of Clarins Instant Smooth prior to application and all applies perfectly. I think the density of the product might prove a bit challenging during application if you eyes are showing signs of (or you already have) crepiness. Such an eye type might feel like the formula drags when applying.

Overall, I don’t think It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concentrate will not replace my beloved Bye Bye Concealer but it’s a second close and a formula that easily earned a spot on my HG (holy grail) list! I liked this one, not as much as Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer, but I liked it none the less.

It is Muse Approved.

    Sounds divine! I have major under eye circle and have been on the hunt for a good concealer. I might have to splurge on this correct and conceal one! Just out of curiosity, what’s your favorite drugstore concealer?

  • Erin

    Do you feel this works as well as the Bobbi Brown Corrector/Concealer? I have very dark circles under my eyes. I haven’t found anything that conceals them yet and am trying to decide which of these to try next.

    • the Muse

      perhaps get bye bye concealer erin, that’s very concentrated if you have VERY bad dark circles.

  • melissa

    my local ulta has testers but no stock on most of the IT products. Either sold out or never got it in? Any how, i played with the testers and can tell the texture this would accentuate my crepines which I often refer too as creepy-ness. πŸ™‚ I’ve used the IT one in the tube and liked it and I really love the laura gellar one, it just disappears to quickly.

  • Cindy Ramirez

    This sounds like a dream! I’d love to try it out. I’m hoping my Ulta gets some It cosmetics products in already.

  • Nadine

    What would the difference be between this product and the original Bye Bye Undereye concealer ( in the black tube I do believe). I have wanted to try Bye Bye Undereye for a couple years now. This is the first time I’m seeing this product though, is it new to the line? Basically I have tried way to many products to hide my “blueish/purpleish” Undereye area. Which would you suggest and why?

    Thanks so much,

    • the Muse

      Hi Nadine. This is a dense concealer versus the liquid version in the tube. In my experience I like the original Bye Bye Concealer best as it has the best pigmentation for concealing everything. This is a new product that addresses darkness but acts as more of a corrector for darkness versus actually concealing the problem. I’d personally use Bye Bye Undereye in the tube if you need to conceal major dark issues. hope this helps!

  • Nadine

    Thank you so very much. If I hadn’t gotten any suggestions I would have just went ahead and bought the original Bye Bye Undereye anyways lol. Do you have any experience with their Bye Bye Pores product? If so I would lIkea to hear your thoughts on it. If not, is it something you can do a full review on? Thevonly issues that I’m not sure if there are any stores locally where It Cosmetics are sold. I live in Nova Scotia, Canada and can only get It Cosmetics from the Canadian home shopping channel. Unless Sephora carries it then I can get it there. Do you know if they do? I have one more question then I promise I will stop killing your comment page hahaha. I have very dry skin…it is actually quite flakey around my nose, and eyebrows but I still have noticeable pores all over especially the T-zone and redness too. Usually people with oily skin have this issue which is what I find strange. Basically I need a good foundation primer that is ment to add moisture not take it away. I need a full coverage foundation for dry skin also, something that truly is full coverage, a product to hide pores and the dark blue Undereye situation. Lastly a good setting powder that also has some kind of coverage in it aswell. I have tried just about everything as far as makeup goes to hide these issues as well as treatment for my skin and I’m just at a loss with what to do now.
    I’m sorry, I know this is a tall order and hopefully I can get going in the right direction makeup wise with your help.
    I am a huge fan of your blog, as it is very informative, unlike many other beauty bloggers out there.
    Oh yeah. I forgot to mention that I am a 27 year old female with a fair skin complexion. I say this because when suggesting some beauty products to someone who you cannot see, it’s pretty hard to do without knowing their skin tone, skin type and even age of the skin the makeup is going on lol.

    Thanks again. I think I just wrote a novel on your blog! Lol

      Hi Nadine. My pleasure! I have quite a bit of products I reviewed from It. You can see them here: Hopefully you’ll find what you are looking for πŸ™‚

      Sephora doesn’t carry It Cosmetics. You can get them directly from the It Cosmetics website I believe they might ship to Canada but can’t confirm. Also, also now carries them…but again not sure on Canadian shipping. But there are special services where you can ship to a company and that company ships to you!? I don’t really have experience with these companies but there are shipping services around.

      BB Creams are great for drier skin and you can see a ton of my reviews here: plus they give a good airbrushed appearance while concealing pores. Powder is more tricky as I also have drier skin and find it hard to wear setting powder so I tend to avoid it. Although I did review a few Clarins powders recently that I liked.

      You might also want to start priming well prior to any foundation application to conceal your pore issue. I find it strange as well since I have smaller pores on and around my nose but no where else. Typically us dry skin folk don’t have visible pores.

      thank you so much I’m really glad you enjoy Musings πŸ™‚ I’m no expert but I really enjoy doing this blog and happy to hear it when people say they love it.

      Also one other suggestion you should try Mally Face Defender Primer that’s an excellent suggestion as well for blurring the appearance of pores and just giving skin a smooth beautiful finish!

    Hi Muse! I just got this (in Light) during the sale last week. (Thanks for letting us know about that! I scored such a great deal!) I haven’t really tried it yet but I just thought I’d let you know it did not come with the brush and stand. My guess is maybe you only get those if you ordered from QVC instead of direct from… ? Is QVC where you got yours?

    • the Muse

      interesting Danae, very interesting! I got mine directly from the press team at It so I find it unusual they didn’t include one! You should contact them perhaps they forgot to add it in!? does the site say it comes with one (i haven’t checked to be honest…)! It could be exclusive to QVC though! Sorry :-/ on the upside I highly recommend ELF studio concealer brush (three bucks) for application with any and all it cosmetic concealer products πŸ™‚

  • Cat

    So, I know close to nothing about makeup but am slowly learning what I like and don’t. My BIGGEST problem is under my eyes. I have large, deep, dark circles under my eyes. I’ve tried quite a few different concealers but nothing is ever enough to do any more than slightly diminish the color. So, I’m wondering what’s the difference between a corrector and concealer? Should I be using both and if so do you have suggestions!?

    • the Muse

      if you have a lot of darkness you’ll want to use a corrector prior to a concealer cat. typically correctors diffuse the appearance of darkness…depends on your skin tone of course but a wide array of shades are available peach and yellow being the most popular to diffuse the look of darkness. Concealer can be used on top of the corrector. I typically just use concealer though because I find correcting and concealer is a bit TOO much product for me.

    Hello The Muse! πŸ™‚

    I’ve commented on one of your post few days back & I’m not sure which post it was/ if it even went through so here I am again.. Hahaha!
    Just want to ask you some questions;
    Is a good primer better than having a good concealer? Which is more important to you?
    I’m actually looking at clarins instant smooth which is muse approved, hehe or concealer from it cosmetics (but don’t believe it’s available in sephora..)
    Thus I’m looking at the high definition one from smashbox, is it good? Vs the MISSHA perfect cover, which is better? ( I’m using the MISSHA extreme cover, love it like you did!) πŸ™‚

    Hope you’re able to tell me your thoughts on them πŸ˜›

  • Ana

    Hi Muse!! Quick question is the light more pink? I have the medium it’s a tad dark, but I know sometimes it cosmetic has a lot of pink…which doesn’t work for me. I love the formulas except I need more yellow or lighter peach.
