Bobbi Brown, Queen of Neutrals, wants to help us look a little less tired with her new spring collection. Called Makeup Face Lift (Hey, BB! My sleep-deprived self is totally down for that!), the eight-piece collection’s mix of new and re-promoted products from the permanent line are supposed to be able to help create a fresh face in five minutes or less.
First, what do you think of the Tinted Eye Brightener ($38, comes in eight shades)? It’s basically Bobbi’s famous potted Tinted Eye Brightener repackaged as a convenient click pen.
I’d heard about it before but hadn’t given it a try until today. Now I see why so many women like it!
Talk about creeeeamy. Like hot butter — hot butter that doesn’t settle into little lines and creases, so it’s like *magic* hot butter if you’re 30-something (like me).
Wearing Tinted Eye Brightener in Light-to-Medium Peach
Coverage-wise, it’s pretty sheer, but can build up to semi-opaque. For minor-to-moderate under-eye discoloration (not severe darkening like after I’ve pulled an all-nighter with Bejeweled 2 on my iPhone), Tinted Eye Brightener should work like a dream.
When my dark circles are really bad, I’ll use it more as a color corrector, layering it beneath something with better coverage like The Balm’s Time Balm Concealer ($18).
As for the price, Tinted Eye Brightener will set you back a hefty $38, and the .05-oz pen does seem kinda small for what you get.
LOVE how flexible it is, but I’d be feeling it more at $15.
If you’ve been out prowling for a light-to-medium coverage concealer that doesn’t accentuate those pesky fine lines (trust me, concealers that do this are hard to find), you might want to give it a go. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B
