Bobbi Brown Instant Full Cover Concealer Review

Concealer is one of those things I never go short of, and I love the formula for its excellent covering and moisturizing, flattering texture.

Instant Full Cover Concealer does a great job of delivering intense, long-lasting coverage, but we have to couch that with some precautionary advice concerning application and creasing. In short, this concealer’s rich texture is its strength and weakness.

Because this is positioned as an undereye concealer, the downside to the dense-cream consistency is that it can end up tugging as you blend it into skin (which is never a good thing for the eye area because it can lead to sagging). Interestingly, after the first week of using this product, the texture seemed to become more pliable and was easier to blend. Prepping skin with a moisturizing product will also help it glide on more smoothly.

The secondary issue is creasing, which shows up almost instantly; however (and somewhat strangely), once you smooth the initial creasing out, it resists coming back for several hours.

The upside to the substantial texture is that it maintains the rich coverage from morning to night—which is particularly great for dark circles. The natural finish doesn’t look or feel drying, and in usual Bobbi Brown fashion, the shade range includes a plentiful array of colors to complement various fair to deep skin tones.

I really love the texture. It has a creamy yet ever so slightly tacky consistency that seems to lock moisture and smooth out the surface. It lasts really well on the skin and sets itself so there’s no need for powder

I just use the side of the doe-foot to swipe the concealer onto the under-eye area, and then smooth and tap it into the skin with my fingertips. The result is instantly refreshed and brightened eyes with a lovely soft focus finish. My eye area feels soft, smooth and hydrated like it has really good skincare on it. Lovely!
