Great concealer. I love the formula stays all day I have no problems with it. But there are drug store concealers that are comparable. The price is a little much. $25 dollars is a lot you could find a drug store concealer that is just as good. I don't know if I would re purchase or not.
This is one heavy duty concealer...With that being said this is my HG concealer. I HIGHLY suggest this for people with acne, acne scarring and hyperpigmentation. I DO NOT suggest for undereye, I tried it and it was AWFUL. I had moderate acne and this is the only product that has carried me from the start of accutane towards the end. Now my skin is less acne and more scarring but this does a great job of not only concealing but also filling my shallow pock marks. My hyperpigmentation is also pretty dark for my skin tone and this cancels it all out totally! Another plus is it hasen't broken me out.
I apply this concealer after my primer before foundation. I use my Sephora sponge (The slanted tip one) to apply. It applies with very full coverage and has a dewy finish to it. The only thing is when you apply it, it can feel a little sticky afterwards. I just wait 5-10 minutes then apply my foundation. This concealer wears all through my day and doesnt sink into my scarring or melt off in anyway. I wear Lancome Teint Idol 24H on top of this and together they make a FLAWLESS yet realistic looking base for anyone with imperfections.
The price is $20 for 0.1 oz. A little goes a long way and this has been a staple in my kit forever! The coverage is well worth the price and this product is something worth looking at when your concealer shopping. My only complaints would be the awful packaging. It's a small jar you gotta dip your fingers into (ugh) so scoop out what you need then apply. Along with the jar the smell is also pretty bad..It doesn't bother me but it does smell like play-doh. I have and will continue to re-purchse this concealer.
I have used Boi-ing in both 02 & 03 shades after reading positive recommendations. I think it might suit younger skin better as it very obviously settles into creases & finelines around the eyes no matter how many eye creams, gels, primers & correctors I applied first. I have pretty dark circles under my eyes & this did little to conceal them & also seemed to come off easily. For the small amount of time it did stay on it was chalky, cakey & looked very obviously like I was using concealer. I wouldn't buy it again.
I really like shade #3.
It really works well for my skin tone.
I apply it using the ELF foundation brush. It works very well for this purpose.
It wears nicely during the day but it can get a bit cakey looking if you do not touch up with a powder during the day.
Good for acne and blemishes. Wouldn't suggest for scars because it didn't cover mine at all.
Its a good product, but it isn't cruelty free and there are better concealers out there. Also I don't think its very good for your skin...
This concealer has a stick formula of thickness, and requires warming up with my fingers to work it in. That can be kind of frustrating seeing as its in a pot, despite that it does make for easy travel.
As far as Benefit's concealers go this one is pretty decent, I'd be more inclined to repurchase as opposed to Erase Paste, as this concealer is more all-purpose than the other.
A major complaint is shade range, when I'm darker I don't match Light but I'm not quite Medium either.
I was pleasantly surprised with Boi-ing. I almost didn't buy it because it's in a pan and insists that you use your finger to apply it and to me, that screams unhygienic, but I've been washing my hands before applying and that's sort of satisfied my desire for cosmetic cleanliness.
The thing is that you have to exercise some discretion when applying this concealer. It's fairly opaque and quite thick, so what I like to do is let it sit on my finger for a few moments before applying and then spreading it out quite a bit. I top it with Palladio's Rice Powder and that's been a pretty good combination for me this summer, considering how hot it's been. My makeup stays put on my face all day without getting greasy, and I have considerably oily skin.
I've tried using a concealer brush as well as a sponge to apply this and it's just not working out, so unfortunately there is no way to get around using your finger to apply it. I mean, you could, but it just doesn't work as well. If it were a little more whipped and I could use my concealer brush then I'd up it to five lippies.
I was disappointed with this concealer. It got so dirty in the pan, it's too sticky and it doesn't blend well. I don't get what the hype was about.
I put this on before school, and 7 hours later when I come home and look in the mirror it looks the exact same! Stays on so long, I love it! It also gives such good coverage!! However I feel that if you've extremely dry skin it wouldn't work as well, it can also be a tad cakey at times. Nevertheless, I love this product
