Ok! Is the Bobbi Brown Retouching Wand in Dark a foundation or a concealer? I went into this review thinking that the Bobbi Brown Dark Retouching Wand was a concealer because the Bobbi Brown Retouching Face Pencils are concealers and everyone uses them as such HOWEVER when I went to pull some details on this retouching wand, I kept seeing the word “foundation” waved about . . . . which either means that Bobbi Brown has not done an audit to make sure all their retailers are saying the same thing OR someone liked this concealer a bit too much, decided to use it all over the face and convince you to do the same.
Well lucky for you, I’m not that person and I’m quite happy to say that this is a
AND a pretty good one at that.
The Bobbi Brown Retouching Wand in Dark – £26.50 via Bobbi Brown – is definitely something different from Bobbi Brown. This creamy concealer has a unique formula that seamlessly and invisibly evens out skin for a retouched yet natural look. The Retouching Wand comes in a portable pen with a sponge applicator that is ACTUALLY pretty good! I was a bit anxious on whether or not a concealer with a sponge applicator would be extremely messy and all over the place but that’s definitely not a problem here.
I would say that the Bobbi Brown Dark Retouching Wand is VERY similar to the NARS Amande Creamy Concealer – which FYI is my favourite concealer of all time – though the colour is a bit pinker. When placed under my eyes, I find that a little goes a very long way (so watch out) that it blended our extremely easy and my undereye area did not feel weighed down or stiff.
Personally I would recommend the Bobbi Brown Retouching Wand in Dark if you want a concealer that fits in your handbag, is very easy to use and easy to blend out.
