Correctors showdown!! Pic heavy

I have been meaning to show pictures and swatches of my favorite correctors for a while. So here it goes. I have tried really hard to take good closeups, so please click on each image to see the true colors.

Bobbi Brown Correctors: Dark Bisque (Left) and Peach (Right)

Bobbi Brown Corrector Dark BisqueBobbi Brown Corrector Dark Bisque

Eve Pearl Salmon Corrector: Medium (Left), Tan (Right)

Eve Pearl and Bobbi Brown Size comparison

Laura Mercier, Ben Nye and Make up forever (MUFE)

Concealer Refills - Blue Neutralizer No. 1

Please see more details about them in these posts:

My skintone fluctuates between NC40-44. My verdict on correctors, NOT concealers:
Under eyes:  Bobbi Brown Dark Bisque (when I am NC42-44ish) and MUFE No-1 (2nd shade from right).
Around my mouth: I am much darker around my mouth area. I would say around NC45-47. Eve Pearl in Tan is PERFECT!!!
Spots on my face: Laura Mercier SC-04

Thank you so much. My skin tone is similar to yours and I have been dying to find the right correctors. I always look up your blog for recommendations on foundations, concealers..
Do you apply corrector to the mouth area too? Can you do a step by step tutorial on how you apply the corrector and concealer (eye and mouth area)?

@nisha sure I will try to do a picture based tutorial soon.

Thanks so much for doing this! I'm looking for a good corrector for my undereye circles (thanks mom!). You said before you liked Eve Pearls in another post..are you still using hers? I'm an NC-35/37 but my circles are the bane of my existence!! Is Eve Pearls more heavy duty than Bobbie Brown? Thanks!!

@Maya I use Eve Pearl in Tan around my mouth and in Medium under my eyes. IMHO I think they are more heavy duty than Bobbi Brown.

@Maya It sure it, but Eve Pearl sometimes has good sales. Keep an eye out. I myself waited for over 6 months to buy the product 30% off.
