Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer in Ivory

I had been running low on my trusty Mac Studio Scuplt Concealer for a while and figured that since I had been using it for around 2 and a half years, I might delve into the unknown and see what else is out there that I might like!
This is where the fight began. After posting a tweet asking what new concealer to go for, I got conflicting responses. The majority of people told me to go with Benefit's Erase Paste, but as you can see I didn't. I'm a student, I crippled at the price. Benefit was £19.50 whereas this little beauty was only £17 (now £15.30 at John Lewis! Typical!) and I have never tried anything by Bobbi Brown before so I figured now would be a good time as any to start.
I have heard plenty of reviews about this product before so I knew that quite a lot of people did like it, and therefore there was a pretty good chance that I would like it too. And I do :)
My shade is Ivory. From the pictures above you can see that I have blended it into the under part of my arm which is considerably whiter than my face and is why it stands out a little bit more.
The consistency is great. Its not to sticky and not too thin or thick. It holds the area I want to cover very well, and although it is obviously blendable, it has good coverage. The finished look is really natural and flawless. I use this under my eyes and I don't feel that it creases at all which is lovely. I am starting to love this more every time I use it, and I would say its giving my trusty Mac Concealer a run for its money! Having said this, you do get considerably more product with the Mac one than you do with this and for a cheaper price too!
I like the packaging as well. It's small, compact and the mirror is actually really handy. I have started to use it every time I put on my concealer as it helps me focus in on the area I wish to cover.
Overall top marks for this product and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is in the market for a new concealer.
