The Bobbi Brown Dupe?

The Bobbi Brown Corrector is something that I have wanted to try for the longest time but I could never bite the $30 bullet. I'm sure that I am not the only one who has been in that situation because it is impossible to find a corrector for an affordable price. Well, I think I have finally found the answer in the Almay Smart Shade Concealer Plus Brightener.

This super sleek duo comes with a salmon toned corrector and a brightening concealer in one slim compact. It is available in 3 shades that are all neutral enough to work for multiple skin tones. It also hypoallergenic and formulated specifically for sensitive skin. I have to admit, I originally passed this by thinking it would be too dark for my super fair skin but it is an amazing match. I like to use the salmon toned side to cover up any blue veins or purple shadows under my eyes and then I pat the concealer on top to blend and brighten the area up. It is stunning how it immediately wakes up my face and gives it a healthy glow.

The formula is a bit tricky at first, it is very thin but incredibly creamy. It needs to be warmed up a bit between the fingers but then it is a dream to apply. Like many other concealers, it does accentuate dry patches so it is important to apply an eye cream before hand and it is also incredibly important to set the concealer because it will settle into fine lines.

I am so happy to have found this gem and it has become a regular in my routine. Will you try it out?

You can buy the Almay Concealer Plus Brightener from all drugstores for $10.99.



  1. This looks like a dupe for UK brand Soap & Glory's Kick Ass Concealer that retails for around £10. Best under-eye concealer ever and so handy to carry around in your handbag just like this!

    1. I've heard such amazing things about the Soap & Glory concealer, I hope I can try it someday!

  2. This sounds really interesting! I've never tried anything from Almay but I think I will go check this out because I am on the hunt for a new one!
