If you read Beauty Info Zone you know that we are mad for It Cosmetics. We’ve been fortunate enough to try so much of the line and we keep falling deeper and deeper in love. When we were sent the Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concentrate we weren’t sure if It Cosmetics could beat the original Bye Bye Under Eye. We’ve both used that for years and agree that it ranks right up there as favorites.
It Cosmetics doesn’t stand on its laurels though, they are always coming out with new products and trying to improve what’s available. Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concentrate is one of those products. If you notice, it’s called a Corrector Concentrate, not concealer. It comes in three shades – Light for fair to light skin tones, Medium for light to medium skin tones, and Rich for tan to rich skin tones. It was created as a corrector which is why there are less shades. Correctors are especially important under your eyes to cover the circles and discoloration that you might have in that area.
Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concentrate was specially made as an anti-aging product. It contains the benefits of skincare while also providing full coverage correction. Ingredients include green coffee extract, niacin, hylauronic acid, peptides, cucumber, avocado, and hydrolyzed collagen; all ingredients that we look for in our skincare.
This sells for $38 at QVC and Ulta and comes with the great brush for application. On to the reviews!!
I’m convinced that all of us over a certain age have issues under our eyes. They might be dark circles, puffiness, discoloration or just plain old dullness. I’ve yet to meet someone that doesn’t complain about what to use under their eyes to correct their problems.
When I opened up this corrector I instantly thought of the Bye Bye Redness that I previously reviewed since the packaging is the same and it comes with a small brush that’s perfect for the product. But Bye Bye Redness is a very creamy product and you have to be careful that you don’t get too much out; Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concealer Cream on the other hand is quite dense and you have to work a little to get the product out. I’m thrilled that it comes with the brush since my nails are long and small pots don’t work that well for me. Plus the brush is perfect for application.
Because the consistency is on the hard side what I do is put some eye cream on my hand or steel palette, I pick up the It Corrector Cream with the brush and then blend it on my hand with the eye cream. It lightens up the texture so that it’s now easy to apply. I apply it in a V shape under my eyes with the brush, then go back and blend it in. I also use this where I have any redness or small spots, especially at the side of my nose where it’s always redder than the rest of my face.
I’ve got to say that I really love the full coverage of this and I expect to use it up until every bit of it is gone. I only need a little bit at a time though so it’s going to last me for months. The shade Light is perfect for me as a concealer but I think that even Medium might work but strictly as a corrector for my insomniac under eye area.
I am a big, big fan of IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Concealer, the one in the squeeze tube. I have very dark undereye circles no matter how much I sleep or how good I feel, so I need a heavy duty concealer. I love the original concealer so much that I was skeptical I would like this one…but I really, really like it. As Marcia mentioned, this isn’t just a concealer, it’s a corrector, so it leans peach in terms of color. I think that it does a great job of covering the blue under my eyes, so I often use the corrector on the blue areas, then the concealer in a V from the outside of my eye to my nose.
I love the brush, it’s a fantastic little guy that is perfect for cream products and it fits just perfectly in all those odd shaped areas on the face.
Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concealer Cream has a beautiful creamy consistency but it doesn’t crease at all throughout the day. I swatched it above on my tanned hands, and you can really see how illuminating the Light shade is. I would love to try the Medium, I could probably use it alone as both a corrector and a concealer. For now, though, with my faux-tanned skin I use the light to change my blue to a normal skin tone…and it works magic. IT Cosmetics hasn’t failed me yet!
In the October issue of Marie Claire magazine this was chosen as the top “most wanted” item for under eye circles. Even Marie Claire readers agree with us. Now it’s your turn to try it and agree with us.
