holy grail....

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.

Best concealer ever!

A little thick, so you have to warm it up before applying and you have to make sure it's the right shade for you so I recommend buying it at sephora or somewhere where you can get matched, but once you have the correct shade it literally is a miracle. I have terrible dark circles under my eyes that I have never been able to cover with any concealer but this actually did it. I swear by this stuff!

Solid concealer

This a great concealer overall. It has been a lifesaver for me plenty of times after sleepless nights, and for covering blemishes.

Better if you 'cook' it

I expected more from this concealer after reading so many glowing reviews. The product was so solid in the container it was hard to apply. It didn't make much of a difference under my eyes but did cover a couple of blemishes nicely. I thought that Boi-ing was over-hyped and over-priced.

Then I read an article about 'cooking' your concealer - letting it sit on your face for about 15 minutes before blending to warm it up and get better coverage. This morning I put my concealer on early, applied the rest of my make-up, and used my 'all-in-one' brush to blend my concealer at the end. I'm much happier with the results but don't think I'll buy this again.

On the bright side, you get a lot of concealer for the money, so it will last me a good, long time now that I know how to get better results with it.

Holy Grail!

This was my first mid-end purchase that occurred while I was pregnant with my first child. I was experiencing the pregnancy "glow"(which was actually my face turning red from a severe hormonal breakout.) I was steered to this in the store and I had never spent that much money on one makeup item before, but I was desperate and in need of serious coverage. I played with it and while it didn't cover the "texture" of my breakouts, it covered them and made them less visible. I could actually go outside without feeling like I was some monster.

It is heavy duty so it needs to be treated as such. The best way for me to use it was to swipe a concealer brush in the product and tap it onto any blemishes/spots that needed concealing. It also doesn't dry down so you do need to set it with powder to ensure longevity.

Good for bad acne or prominent skin imperfections

After a long a day it clumps it the crease of my eye since i had awful veins under and on my eyelid. Applys best when using my finger instead of a makeup brush or sponge. Would no recommend for everday use.

My go-to concealer.
Purchased

This stuff is great. Covers up dark circles under eyes, blemishes, and evens out my skin. It doesn't get caked on, which is great, and doesn't make my skin break out.

Best cover up
Purchased

I have many products from benefit and love them. I have the erase paste and I love it! But boi-ing is even better. I love the texture because when you put it on it stays put, blends well and does not really settle into fine lines and wrinkles. It great for under eye circles!
