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!
Let me start off by saying I have really dark circles. And I have a lot of food allergies, so they become darker if I eat certain foods. And of course, if I am tired or hungover... I wear concealer daily and a lot of it to cover my dark circles. This product instantly shot to my #1 concealer EVER. It covers completely and lasts all day. Its not noticeable, creamy but not creamy, and...I just can't say enough about the coverage quality. It doesn't take a ton to completely cover the darkness and it's so easy to blend in with the rest of your skin.
If you have really dark circles - TRY THIS. I will never bother trying another brand again.
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.
Blendable and Buildable
This concealer blends very well and sits really nicely on the skin. I don't feel like I have makeup caked on when I'm using it. Beware, the lightest shade is very light! I'm pretty fair-skinned (usually wear the lightest or second-lightest makeup shade), but the lightest shade was too light even for me. Don't be deterred by the description of the second shade (light to medium skin tones) if you are undecided on which one to get. Unless you are VERY light-skinned, the lightest shade will likely be too light.
