I have the concealer, it's a nice product, but I have the feeling it doesn't cover my dark circles very good. I have the one in porcelaine. Should I use the concealer with the corrector? I'm a little bit confused.

1. My horrible dark circles. I prepped with Clarins Eye Contour Gel, takes away some of the puffiness. Notice how purple my dark circles and inner corners are.
2. I apply the corrector ONLY where it's needed - where the purple colour stands out the most. There's no point in applying it all over my under-eye area. The less product you use, the better. You're gonna blend it out anyway.
3. Lightly blend the corrector into your skin. You can either use your pinky finger () to gently press the product into your skin or use your concealer brush of choice to tap/buff the product into your skin. Notice how the purple colour is gone, but I'm still slightly dark under the eyes.
4. Apply a small amount of concealer where you're still slightly dark and pat it into the corrector. I basically apply the concealer where I applied the corrector. Very important: Set with powder using a fluffy blush! The powder that comes with the concealer is really good IMO. Lightly dab the powder, we don't want to mess up the product we just spent 5 mins applying...

It seems like a lot of work, but it really isn't. As soon as you get the hang of it, it takes no time at all

I've never had much luck with her foundations/powders as they all turn orange on me
but I do adore her matte brown Espresso eyeshadow for lining (far right).
You get the intensity of black without the obvious harshness or flat ashiness of grey.

Hi guys! I am absolutely in love with Bobbi Brown's products, from the minimalistic packaging to the overall quality, they are just fantastic. My first BB item was her Pot Rouge in Powder Pink #6 and it is still the most amazing cream blush I've ever encountered. Highly pigmented and superbly blendable. It melts into skin to give you that lit-from-within glow.

I recently picked up her Stick Foundation in Sand 2 (I'm a NC20 for reference) and again, it's love! Great coverage for all manner of sins, yet somehow it doesn't look like you're wearing foundation at all. I do have oily skin though, so the stick foundation doesn't last on me for as long as I would like. So yesterday I went online shopping and got her Oil-Free Compact Foundation as well. Has anyone here had experience with it? Or other recommendations to make? Hehe

I haven't tried it out myself but I've heard it's really good for oily skin.

^^why don't you try to set it on top with powder? she makes a pale yellow one in both pressed and loose form that perfectly sets makeup for oily and pale skin!
I've heard good things about her new one the ''natural finish long lasting foundation'' but if you are talking about this:
http://www.bobbibrowncosmetics.com/t...CT_ID=PROD1226
it's a big no no for me. My skin is very oily and the foundation was very sticky without covering much even though it provides a heavy looking appearance. It's really a mess applying it and it needs a heavy powder (I used a powder foundation to be exact, MAC's Studio Fix to provide extra coverage) to cover and stay matte. Such a waste of money for me. I bought it 2 years ago and it still sits in my drawer half full
But to be fair oily skin needs a powder on top no matter how matte the liquid foundation claims to be. I even use powder to set the famously matte and super long lasting Estee Lauder Double Wear because that too gets a bit oily on its own after 3-4 hours.

Stay away from powder foundations, no matter how oily you think your skin is...that crap does not look good on ANYONE! Use a finely milled loose powder instead, it keeps you oil-free longer.

I agree, at least I've experienced that if you put powder foundation on "wet" skin you get a very cakey look
