Bobbi Brown Concealer Kit Swatch and Review

So I decided to buy and try out this concealer after hearing all the hype about it. The packaging is very convenient as this duo includes a mini compact mirror. Overall, I find the quality of the creamy concealer to be really hydrating, blends easily, and it provides full coverage. For the creamy concealer, I use the shade Beige. Although the formula is quite thick and heavy, the colour it is very pigmented so it simply does it's job of concealing intense dark circles. I would say that the Bobbi Brown's creamy concealer feels very similar to Mac's studio finish concealer. (I am in the skin shade NC30 for the Mac studio finish concealer) The sheer finish pressed powder is used for dusting over the eye area after the concealer is applied and this really help make you look awake and fresh. The shade of my powder is in Pale Yellow and I absolutely love how the yellow tint really helps neutralize the blue veins under my eyes. I really like that by using the combination of the two to cover up my dark circles, they were able to stay put all day without creasing in the lines under my eyes. However, this concealer kit values at $32.00 for 3.1g which is not a lot of product for how much it cost when you think of it. After I finish what I have left of this product, I think I will go back to using my Mac studio finish concealer instead because of the price point. I would say I am still in search for my holy grail concealer!
