Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit Review

    Finding the right concealer is like finding the right jeans. It is so hard! What works for others might not work for me. So I am quite discerning when it comes to concealers coz I know the wrong one has the power to ruin the entire face. 

Here comes Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit:
Price-1850 ( approx $40)

The little black box

For the longest time I've been wanting to try this thing. Have heard a lot of raves about it. So when I finally got one, I was literally trembling with excitement to put it to test.

Organized packaging

   Since i'm very particular and fussy about concealer use, I always choose a "safe" day everytime I try something new...I make sure I don't have much activities or places to go to. The lesser interaction the better. So just in case it will be a major least I won't be embarassed as much. Hehe

Comes with a puff
Creamy concealer on first compartment

   I prefer using my ring finger to heat the cream. This way it absorbs and melts more easily with my skin. I noticed that this concealer has a rich and creamy consistency that is not too gooey or pasty...first yipee! A few light pat is enough to cover the entire undereye area. The trick is not to put too much so that it won't crease because it has the tendency to cake when applied thickly. So LESS is really more! Works well for me! With this kind of usage I could just imagine this pot lasting me for centuries!...second yipee! 

My concealer shade

  The cream blends smoothly and effortlessly. It's buildable and highly pigmented color was great in covering my raccoon eyes evenly, the warm beige shade was a perfect match. EXCELLENT coverage! I also use it to conceal the tiny red veins on my left cheek...third yipee! 

Lower compartment comes with loose powder

   The finishing powder is meant to set the concealer in place...which I skip because I get annoyed using it. I find it USELESS! It spills everytime I open the lid, it makes my concealer crease, the shade is too yellow and the puff doesn't even fit the container. A waste of space for my makeup pouch. Haha! Next time I'll just settle for the concealer alone. Could've saved more moolah! tsk! tsk!         

Perfect match...

   This baby lasted me the entire day without the need for reapplication.  It miraculously stayed put. Even with my oily skin! Whoa! Once in awhile I would apply face powder to control the shine. Other than that everything was A-okay...fourth yipee! 

   I'm very happy i found another concealer that fits me. It's well worth the price. I'm sure I'll be using this for a long long time until the next best thing comes along. I cannot say i've finally found my HG concealer (is there such a thing?) but this one is a major KEEPER...and it works divinely with my La Mer Eye Concentrate! 

   It's def worth a try, but it's better if you test it out ata' store first. Just to be sure. Hehe... 

Thanks for dropping by sweeties! Hugs :-)
