Becca Cosmetics Under Eye Brightening Corrector ($39 CAD) is marketed as a full-coverage corrector that brightens the appearance of under-eye darkness and lifts with light—it’s like eight hours of sleep in a jar.
I have pretty deep set, dark under eyes. Using concealer (despite how full coverage it might be) alone is never strong enough to cover my under eye bags. I’m talking everything from the Tarte Shape Tape to the MAC Studio Fix Concealers will still not be enough to completely cover my under eye darkness. So I’m sure you can appreciate why, when colour correcting became a ‘thing’, I was so happy- makeup to the rescue! I published a post on my favorite drug store under eye corrector, linked here, which has been my good faithful since I discovered it. However, over time I realized that I needed something more moisturizing under my eyes and less thick to counteract my darkness. I needed something that would colour correct by counteracting the colour, relying less on just being so thick that it covers up the darkness and more on colour theory so it neutralizes my dark veins.
After hearing such rave reviews about the Becca Cosmetics Under Eye Brightening Corrector, I decided to try it out. The corrector comes in a small glass jar with a salmon lid. The Becca Cosmetics Under Eye Brightening Corrector’s come in two shades and I purchased the deeper one of the two in Medium to Deep.
This doesnt really seem like a ‘medium to deep’ shade to me at all. I consider myself to be of light to medium complexion and have never worn anything with the word ‘deep’ in it before. I think Becca should release a deeper shade perhaps called ‘deep to dark’ or something because this just works well for me and wouldn’t suit anyone with a deeper complexion.
Medium to Deep is a peachy/ salmon shade with some strong apricot tones to it that are meant to cancel out blue veins.
Overall, I love this colour corrector and can see myself remaining loyal to it for a long time. The consistency is moisturizing, opacity is medium but the colour is perfect to neutralize the darkness under my eyes! I LOVE LOVE LOVE!
