I was extremely disappointed and baffled by how poorly this concealer worked. I've been looking for a good concealer for the ever-present dark under-eye circles, and this one had great reviews. It's more than I would normally pay for a concealer, but I figured I couldn't go wrong with a product by Benefit. False. I cannot get it to blend in, so it just sits there and looks all cakey/flakey and gross. Unfortunatey I will definitely be trying to figure out how to get my money back.
Heaven in a concealer
I have suffered with extremely dark and deep undereye bags for all of my life. Genetics cursed me, I get plenty of sleep. I tried every concealer in the book. They all either settled in my creases or were too thin to even put up a fight against my dark circles.
My life changed when this concealer came in to my life, not kidding. I tried it in a sample version and was hooked. I'm on my 4th batch and still haven't found anything better. It lasts forever too. One full size boi-ing will last me upwards of 10 months and I use it every day. I apply it on top of my BB creme then finish with a powder or a pressed foundation. No primer needed for all day lasting wear either.
I would recommend getting one shade lighter than your skin tone to really make your undereyes look bright and awake.
So i finally redeemed some Birchbox points and decided to try Boi-ing concealer since my usual was running out. It took me a while to figure out if I should get shade 01 or 02. I'm have pale olive skin and very light when I don't tan, so I decided on the 02 light/medium. When I received it I noticed it had a pink undertone as opposed to 01 light that looked yellow. I tried it and was shocked that it matched my skin exactly. It was wonderful on my dark circles and I did notice I had to layer for my acne scars. You do have to blend the edges whenever you use this and I noticed it was easier to put on when you warm up the product right in the pot. I took others advice and set it with powder and it hasn't budged or crease for hours. I am really thinking of getting the lighter shade to use as a highlight. The product is small but you really don't need much at all, I couldn't believe it. I will never go back to other concealers!
spots, be gone!
Those folks at Benefit know what they're doing. This is a concealer that actually works, and can be effectively applied with fingertip or brush. Dab a bit of powder on top, and you're good to go.
Looks alil cakey when applied, but can work for photo shoots with my kids. I wont spend this much again because i feel that there are better products for your money out there
