Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener Review

If you have been following P&B for a while, you would know that i am perpetually on the hunt for something that will transform my panda like eyes into shining bright one. I started my concealer journey with Mac Studio Sculpt Concealer- realised it was heavy coverage but the consistency was too thick, moved on to Mac select moisture cover which was a loyal friend for a quite a while but i didnt find a great shade match in it  and then discovered Inglot under eye concealer which has probably been my favourite. After a brief stint with the Becca creamy concealer (Fantastic for the first month, started getting hard and difficult to apply in Month 2), i walked into the Bobbi Brown store the other day, hoping to try their much raved about Corrector and Concealer. This is kind of what transpired:

Me : ” I want the BB concealer ”

SA: ” OK..its a two step system- there is a corrector and concealer and both of them need to be applied together”

Me: ” Umm.  Ok how much do each of those cost”

SA: ” Corrector is for 1850 and concealer is for 2000″

Me: ” Gulp. Thats 4000 Rupees- equivalent to like 80 cinnabons !!!”

SA Examining my eyes closely : ” You have very thin, fragile skin under your eyes. You shouldnt be layering products on it anyway- it will settle into lines”

Me thinking that its the first time someone has EVER tried to not peddle me a gazillion products .

SA: ” Here try the tinted eye brightener. Its lightweight and brightens the eye, providing some level of coverage though not much”

And after a little swish swoosh under the eyes, i got home the Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener, partially because i was just so happy to have discovered an SA who had been honest and not tried give me a bill that i would need insurance to pay  for!

What BObbi Brown Claims it is: Our same brightening lightweight concealer now in new shades and a clear tube (so you know just how much is left before you run out).  Instantly brightens shadows so you look refreshed and revived-perfect for touch-ups too.

My Views

Here is the thing, see when you cover up dark circles you can either go for like natural kind of coverage, where there still may be some shadows under the eyes but the effect is very natural or you can go for completely erasing them out, but with it visibly looking like you have some product on the eyes. I prefer the former and that’s what the tinted eye brightener does.

This may not be the most heavy duty coverage concealer, but this instantly brightens my under eye area and conceals about 80% of my dark circles ! I can definitely see the difference and my MIL always tell me- how come when you wake up you look tired but suddenly after your makeup you look so ‘ refreshed’. This little tube of liquid is what does it. The reason i love it, even though it doesnt conceal 100% is because it does its job , without looking like you have any trace of concealer under your eyes- your eyes look completely natural and bright. I do feel it needs to hold up longer- after 6 hours its faded quite a bit and you get your circles back

How to Apply: This is important to know. Basically , dont be shy of using a generous amount of this. Use the doe foot applicator and make a swipe motion like a wide ‘U’ on your dark circles. Take your ring finger and spread it once in that same swipe motion. Then very gently go ‘dab-dab-dab’ on top of it. This is the way to use this- dab-dab and sure enough you will see it dissapear.

Pros of Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener:

  • Super Lightweight
  • Provides natural coverage
  • Brightens up the under eye area
  • Doesnt settle into lines or creases

Cons :

  • Does not last super long
  • Does not give very heavy coverage (but i still think the coverage is good)

Verdict: B+

Price: Rs 1850/-

Recommendation: The Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener is a lightweight concealer which gives completely natural looking coverage and instantly mkes for brighter eyes !! This may not provide heavy coverage, but it covers upto 80% of my dark circles without looking ashy, and the best thing about this is that its super light so it doesnt settle into lines or look like you have anything like concealer on !

Shikha December 26, 2013 at 11:17 am

I think its giving a good coverage.. Same issue with me product tends to settle in fine lines. Thanks for reviewing I will check this out


Gowthami December 26, 2013 at 11:19 am

rashi December 26, 2013 at 11:23 am

Looks great. How many shades do they have in this ?


Shreya December 26, 2013 at 11:29 am

Loved the review dear ! This product looks similar to Fit Me Concealer !


Xuvious December 26, 2013 at 11:29 am

I generally like more natural looking ones too. I still use a corrector though, otherwise concealers look ashy on me. :)


Lisha December 26, 2013 at 11:37 am

It really does seem to brighten up the under eye area and I like that it does not settle into fine lines! This will be perfect for tired eyes!


Shivi@COSMOCHICS December 26, 2013 at 11:38 am

This sounds perfect! the first thing i look is that it should not make under eye skin ashy which a lot of products do! Thankfully this one is full of all plus points! :)


Sumathi December 26, 2013 at 11:43 am

I have super tired eyes. It almost always looks like I have just woken up without any sleep.
This looks really natural. Doesn’t look like you have applied any concealer.
SAs mostly have a huge impact on our bill, don’t they :P


Krithi December 26, 2013 at 11:45 am

Arzoo December 26, 2013 at 2:06 pm

You write so funnily, these SA’s always wants to hand over a long bill to us but that SA must be really sweet to help you out and this product looks a magic product, would love to give it a shot.


Clothes and Creativity December 26, 2013 at 2:49 pm

Mehak, is the coverage similar to the Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer?!


Peachesandblush December 26, 2013 at 6:11 pm

Krithi December 26, 2013 at 6:08 pm

Anupama eyyunni December 26, 2013 at 6:47 pm

it seems like a good product, there’s a drastic change in your before and after pic :)


Amani zaara December 26, 2013 at 6:54 pm

Looks like a promising product.. Good for day wear when u need less coverage..


kayennat December 26, 2013 at 7:02 pm

I really like this product and uses it in the colour peach. Its for the days when I can’t be bothered to go all out with my Kim K concealing techniques lol. It does give a natural but brightening effect.


Supria December 26, 2013 at 7:31 pm

I prefer lighter coverage products under the eyes. Anything heavy duty only makes the dark circles more obvious on me and looks like I am wearing a mask.

This sounds like a good product. I tried the BB concealer corrector in store and hated the feel of them… Very very sticky!


joyi December 26, 2013 at 7:34 pm

Wow! I will definitely try this in the future. I feel heavy concealers change the way I look too much and make me look over made-up. This might be a product for everyday!


malathi December 26, 2013 at 9:14 pm

can u mention the shade pls…


Saraswathi Sneha N V December 26, 2013 at 11:07 pm

Perfect !!!


Jyoti December 27, 2013 at 12:53 am

This seems really good :)


Swati December 27, 2013 at 9:01 am

This looks so nice…and has made such a great natural difference. :)


mounica December 27, 2013 at 1:46 pm

looks good. I wanna try it. Which shade are you using btw?


kayennat December 27, 2013 at 5:20 pm

Hey just wanted to add that you can buy the Bobbi Brown corrector and use whatever concealer you already have! I have both the corrector and concealer from Bobbie but I don’t use them together. Other correctors that are really good= Mac Orange colour corrector, Illamasqua Orange pencil, Illamasqua cream pigment in emerge.


Blushnblossom December 27, 2013 at 7:20 pm

I am definitely going to check this out…… it will be perfect for those days when you are in hurry and I think this gives good coverage too…… and brighten up dull looking eyes….. I think it is perfect


Mayuri December 28, 2013 at 3:35 am
