Review: Benefit Boi-ing Concealer

After reading a lot of positive reviews, I decided to try this concealer. I'm really glad I did! It's become my favorite concealer and I use it everyday. 

The packaging is okay, nothing special really. There’s not too much to say about the packaging other than the simplicity of it. You don't get a lot of product considering the price of it, but you only need a little bit of product as the coverage is really good! I use it to cover up my under eye circles and it works really well for that. I like to warm the product up before using it so that it’s creamy and blends effortlessly. On the back of the product it calls itself an ‘industrial-strength concealer’ and that’s definitely the case with this. Honestly, less is more! You do not need a lot. Take a little on a concealer brush or your finger, apply it to whatever you want to cover and gently pat to blend it out. It works okay for blemishes but I prefer using it for my under eyes. My favorite beauty guru on Youtube didn’t like this on her under eyes and preferred it on her spots and scars, so I guess you’ll just have to see what works for you.

I only have a few problems with this. One is that it’s £16.50 at my local Boots which is a bit pricey. The other is that it really doesn't work with dry skin. I have quite dry skin under my eyes and it settles into that dry skin, making it look horrible. But this problem is easily solved as I apply moisturizer and allow it to sink in before I apply my makeup. 

I'd also like to point out that there are only three shades: light, medium and dark. This can be a problem for some people, although luckily it isn't a problem for me as light matches me perfectly.

I’d definitely recommend this and will be repurchasing soon as I've hit pan. I've never hit pan on a concealer before so that's really saying something!

5/5 ♥

  1. I've never tried this but maybe I should. I don't like concealers that slip around and this sounds like it stays put...
