Are you a fan of Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector? I tried it when it originally launched and I didn’t like it. It’s very emollient, quite thick, difficult to blend, and super shimmery.

I’m one of those people that avoids putting shimmery anything under my eyes. Hey, I have no problem with shimmer eyeshadow ABOVE my eyes but below it, NO just no!

So, here’s the thing, Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector sounds amazing in theory. It’s a brightening and blurring corrector! Cool! Unfortunately it contains light-reflecting illuminating pigments! Those shimmery pigments combined with the thicker, emollient texture prove a nightmare for my drier, finely lined eyes. It’s like taking a spotlight and shining it on my dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines.

Needless to say it doesn’t quite work for me. It might be a better pick for someone with smoother eyes that aren’t as dry!

So, Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector?

Big nay for this girl!

What about you?

Have you tried it?

Was it a yay or a nay for you?

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. 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. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I haven’t tried this, but I do have the Pixi brightening peach corrector and like it. I think shimmer is definitely tough to pull off under the eye.

    I tried it a while ago and liked it at the time, but now I am really preferring the UD Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluids. The shimmery-ness of the Becca didn’t bother me, but I just think the UD works way better.

    • Jenna

      I also love the UD Naked Skin Correctors, the peach one has been amazing for my dark under eye circles.

  • Jane

    I pondered it, remembered I have the NYX undereye corrector and want to try the Judith August orange masking one, so I skipped it.

  • Iris

    I wished to buy this after I finished my Smashbox Eye BB Cream (which is lasting forever and a bargain, seeing how well it works). I’ll test it out in store before I purchase. Thanks for the heads up!

    • Isabella Muse

      my pleasure. I have a review of it up which explains my experience with it!

    • Isabella Muse

      that works great I’m sure just now all under the eye, that’s a horror show for me!

  • Ally

    It was a “nay” for me. It didn’t do anything to mask circles. I really like Urban Decay’s color correcting fluid in pink for that, but I hear peach is nice as well! (:

  • Benni

    Agree with your assessment. I found that the texture was wayyy too heavy and emphasized my under-eye areas instead of conceal them…

  • Melany

    When I first bought it, I loved it. Now I feel that it may be a little too pink for my complexion and I don’t use it as much.

  • genevieve

    Nay for me too – too bright, pinky and shiny under my eyes – I would look like a very bad clown.

  • Hayley

    Honestly I really don’t understand the concept of color correctors in general. I have really dark under eye circles, and I use the Nars concealer to cover them up, and I love it because it’s really heavy duty, but sometimes I wonder if I should try a color corrector on them instead? It seems so confusing, lol!

    • Isabella Muse

      You really don’t need one if your concealer is already working fine in my humble opinion! But if your dark circles are peeking out you might consider correcting prior to concealing 🙂
