Corrector or Highlighter/Brightener?

I am trying to decide whether I should get the bobbi brown corrector or a brightening pen for under my eyes. Currently, I use the NARS creamy concealer and the smashbox under eye primer and I would like to be able to wear these things with whatever I get. I want the finish under my eyes to be bright, but still natural and smooth. (I have so much trouble getting a smooth finish!)   I am contemplating on getting:


- bobbi brown corrector

- givenchy mister light

- marc jacobs remedy concealer pen

- ysl touche eclat 


also, quick question, how should I set my concealer? Because I feel like powder only makes it look more dry and flakey. My eyes tend to get very dry and end up looking flakey and cakey even a few minutes after I finish my make up.

I just bought the brush actually and I like it a lot and I think I am going to have to go back to try and get the corrector.

Hi lovebaking -


I would second Randee's recommendation of the LM Secret Brightening Powder as setting powder for your under eye area.  It doesn't settle into fine lines or get cakey.  I don't think it is very "brightening" but it is not glittery, which I definitely wouldn't want around my eye.


I recently added Dior's HydraLife BB Eye Creme to my morning routine and have been very pleased with the results.  It brightens the entire eye area without being shiny/glittery - i.e., obvious.  I like that I can use one product that does so many things at once - treat, sunscreen, conceal and illuminate.  I still use concealer on the inner corner of my eye, but have found Dior's BB Eye Creme is enough to conceal the dark shadows directly under my eye and towards the outer corner.  (I hated having to use concealer there because it always seems to show off the fine lines!)  I do three light dots around my eyes in the morning and blend.  This BB absorbs very well - it doesn't sit on the skin, so I think it would blend in with your other products very well.


Please let us know what you end up getting and how you like it.  Happy shopping!
