Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit

Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit

Now that our uni exams are over we can finally relax and enjoy christmas! Unfortunately the late nights of studying have taken its toll and I’ve been left with some tired eyes.  I'm quite fortunate that I can get away without using concealer most of the time as my foundation does all the work for me but sometimes my eye area needs a little bit of help.

I’d been looking at all different kinds of concealers and correctors and after much research I’d heard that the Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit was a blogger favourite, so naturally I had to try it!

The kit includes the Creamy Concealer in Ivory and a Yellow setting powder.  You can buy the creamy concealer seperately but I wanted to see if the setting powder made any difference.  Most people had been raving about the kit so I decided to pay a little bit extra and buy it.  As i’m extremely pale I find it hard to judge which shade i'll be, especially if i’m buying online which is always a gamble! In the end I chose the 2nd lightest shade as the Porcelain one is said to suit hardly anyone.  It all worked out and the Ivory shade was a perfect match!

As i’m so pale, the area around my eyes tends to be slightly blue toned and an uneven colour which is my main reason for concealing.  My eyes aren't necessarily dark around the undereye area but after applying it, it definitely brightened up the area.

What I’ve found from using the creamy concealer is that you really need to use some sort of moisturiser or eye cream underneath and it will blend like a dream.  After using the Yellow setting powder I did like the way it looked but I definitely don’t think it’s essential.  If you powder your whole face like me then you won’t need it but If you don’t usually use any type of face powder then I would say you should probably get it as it looks much more natural with a setting powder.

Overall i’m really happy with the results of the Concealer kit, I don’t think i’d buy the full kit again but I’m definitely picking up the concealer part when it runs out!
