One Concealer to Rule Them All, Bobbi Brown's Brightening Spot Treatment Corrector with SPF 25

Three girls walk into a department store and approach the makeup counter. They walk purposefully towards a nearby makeup artist, and present their scenarios.

Girl A loves to look flawless, but doesn't want to be bothered with a face covered in foundation
Girl B has a big deadline coming up, and has sprouted a couple of spots overnight that she needs to make disappear
and Girl C had a fun night out, with her undereye area is showing it the next morning like a purple beacon of shame

The makeup artist thinks to herself, and then declares that what all three girls need is a great concealer. One that conceals and brightens simultaneously, while offering up the benefits of sun protection and skin refining ingredients that lighten discolorations over time. All three girls left with huge smiles, and their matching shade of Bobbi Brown's Brightening Spot Treatment Corrector with SPF 25.

I am currently channeling my girl c, though not for the same reasons as her. Poison to a clear and bright complexion, a lack of sleep and proper hydration have manifested themselves in the form of some pretty intense under-eye circles on my visage. While I do have many concealers in rotation at the moment, I knew I needed to go for something even more powerful than what I had in my arsenal to cover up the blue. The bruised look is never cute, ever.

A creamy gel that runs on the thicker side but still blends like a dream, Bobbi Brown's Spot Treatment Corrector with SPF 25 has been saving me from looking like I have had a month's worth of sleepless nights. I love the coverage, and I love that it has spf built right in. The formula instantly works to cover up my discoloration, while the pink tones in the light bisque shade cancel out the blue and reddish purple to give me an overall brighter undereye appearance. The formula wears all day without fading or settling into any lines, and while I cannot speak yet for the lightening properties over time, I can say that the present is looking pretty darned bright.

The only critique I have about this particular concealer is that it does run a bit on the dry side. Dry and normal skinned gals will have to lightly moisturize before use, to ensure that the product glides on evenly. That done, the concealer glides on like perfection.

Pictures always speak louder than words, so here is a Before and After. Excuse the brows, I am growing them out for another story.

As you can see, there is a significant improvement in the brightness and tone of my undereyes above. This concealer works amazingly, period. No matter what your skin transgression is, Bobbi Brown's Brightening Spot Treatment Corrector with SPF 25 will have you covered.
