Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener Review


I was really excited about this and I promised a review asap, that was a whole season ago (Happy Fall!!). But I calmed myself down and I thought it'd be better to test this one out for a few weeks before I threw up a review. Im happy to report that I love it just as much as the day I bought it!

This is very different from most concealers, it's very lightweight and almost watery. Surprisingly, it also doesn't have a lot of coverage, not even enough to cover the freckles that I have under my eyes. Because it's not really a 'concealer' at all! It's a color correcting and light reflective product, a true 'brightener'. 

I have the shade Bisque which is very pink, and the pink completely neutralizes the blueness under my eyes but doesn't leave a pink or weird gray cast under my eyes at all (which has happened with other color correctors). Under my eyes I can get kinda sunken so it catches dark shadows, the subtle light reflection in the product just seems to bounce the light right out of there. It completely brightens up my whole under eye area, but very subtly. It's not beaming in daylight or flash photography like many light reflective concealers do. 

I think the best part about this is that its practically invisible. It does so much and is completely natural looking, even in daylight, in fact I think it looks its best in daylight! The light weight and blendable texture means a little goes a long way. It's in no way not heavy or cakey. It doesn't settle into fine lines, and it sets completely and doesn't smear throughout the day. 

Long story short, it's a miracle worker! I like more natural looking products and I don't have too much to cover under my eyes, so the consistency is perfect for me. But if you need more coverage, this might not work for you. Although I think it's still worth testing out at the counter, you might be pleasantly surprised!
