Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Review

The Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer that has pretty much been on my radar since day one. I feel like this is another one of them classic cult beauty products that has just lived on my wish list and I have never got around to buying it. I feel like as much as I want to try these cult classic products, there are things out now that are hell of a lot newer that always seems to grasp my attention. I was torn between trying this Creamy Concealer or the Corrector, because I have hell of a lot of darkness at the minute, but I thought that overall, I would get more use out of the concealer.
When I got this delivered I was actually quite shocked about the size of the pan. This, compared to something like the MAC Studio Fix Concealer, or even the new Nars Soft Matte Concealer, you just seem to get such a tiny amount. In this pan, you get 1.4g, which is a pretty tiny amount compared to another cream concealer such as the MAC and the Nars where you get around 7g of product. I could understand the small quantity if the price was lower and if the product was more pigmented, but in my opinion, they aren’t.

One thing that I do have to admit that I really love about this concealer is that it does live up to its name, it is a really good creamy concealer. In the pan when I first opened it, the product did look quite firm and waxy looking, which put me off to start with, but once I got my finger in there and warmed the product up a little, it did feel super creamy and blendable. I have used this underneath my eyes with a brush like the MAC 217 and my ring finger and both times it has blended out and looked super flawless and really nicely polished. I also had no creasing with this concealer when I had set it with powder.
Another thing that I found a little strange about this Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer, was the colour of the product. I guess that can be down to me ordering the wrong colour, but after looking at swatches online, I thought that I had nailed it. I went for the shade Ivory because I like a lighter and brighter shade to highlight my face with. It looked online and in swatches like a very light-yellow shade. When I got this through the post, I realised that it wasn’t what you would expect for the name Ivory.

The shade Ivory is more of a pink undertone, but it is quite a deep colour. I would say that the colour looks more like a corrector than it does a normal concealer because of the salmon colour of the product. I would say that this shade actually looks more like the Benefit Erase paste. Don’t get me wrong the shade is perfect for covering the darkness under my eyes, but that isn’t by I bought this product, I wanted this to conceal and brighten. Like I said, it was my error for ordering this shade, but with a name like Ivory, I would expect a product that is near enough white.
I know that this has been quite a negative review, but there are some things that just don’t make me love this concealer, especially since trying products like the Tarte Shape Tape, Urban Decay Naked Weightless, Nars Soft Matte, I just don’t think that this really compares in the same way that I wanted it to. And the colour and the minimum amount of product just brought it down for me. But to actually use and blend under your eyes, it is a dream and looks so pretty, but if I was using this every single day then I would be burning through these so quickly!

Make sure to leave me a comment down below and let me know if you have tried out this Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer and let me know what you thought of it!



  1. I tried this a few years ago but just wasn't mad about it - it felt a bit too thick for my under eye area xx


    1. I think if I tried it on top of my foundation I would completely agree, but if I use it just on top of my primer and warm it up a little using my finger, it is a dream for covering up my darkness! Xx
