I don't love this stuff nor do I hate this stuff. I don't love it enough to buy it again, but I don't hate it enough to give it a horrible review. I found the best way to use it is to pat it lightly on the eyelids or any purple areas on the face ( great for under eye area before your skin toned concealer) and cover immediately with the tiniest bit of powder. I have found a great replacement for this and it's the NYX correcting concealer in, yep, yellow! It's got a slightly drier consistency and it is also slightly more light yellow and translucent than Benefit. I have found that both of these products (used sparingly) can work well as a highlight on the face and more so of you're blending with contour.

This product doesn't have great reviews but I really loved it. I have SUPER oily lids and this stuff really controlled the oil. I also have been blessed with lots of allergies and my lids are always super red and this stuff made my eyelids look "normal". I always look more awake when I wear this stuff.

This is a a product I simply can't live without! As long as you use a primer or moisturise prior to using it (apply the primer/moisturiser at least 10 minutes before applying your make-up) it glides on like a dream and does not crease. It instantly refreshes and brightens tired eyes - I wear it both on and above my eyelids and underneath my eyes too. I find it is best once you have applied your foundation and with a touch of pressed powder on the top. It keeps eyeshadow in place longer too. Makes me look alert and awake even when I am sleepy! I don't know what I'd do without this little product.

I really love this product. The price is not a problem for me but it is slightly expensive. It does a great job of covering up my dark circles. I do not wear eye shadow or much eye makeup other than mascara so I wouldn't know if I helps eye makeup to stay put. But regardless, it works great for me

Not a fan. DIdnt help as a primer. Was hoping it would help with my neutralizing my lids and help make my makeup last. Still creased after an hour and feel it didnt blend well and dried too quick.

I don't love this as an eyelid primer (I think Urban Decay's work much better) so I use it as a matte cream highlighter instead for when I'm contouring.

I'm glad to have found a secondary use for it, but for the price its cheaper to buy the yellow stick concealers from Maybelline at the drugstore.

I liked this and it really does help to cover dark circles. But I've sort of given up on heavy duty colour correcting concealers for everyday use now, as it's a real hassle to have to add this extra step every day to my beauty regime. Also, having tried the NYX peach version which I think it suits my colouring better and is a tad lighter in texture so you don't need quite as much moisture round your eyes as with Lemon-aid (plus it's about a third of the price of this one, if not less), for the amount of times I reckon I'll I want to obliterate any trace of my dark undereyes I'll stick with the NYX. BTW if the texture annoys you Mally does a gloppy version of Boi-ing (but it's far too expensive for my liking).

A really nice slightly tactile product that holds eyeshadows very nicely! The colour blurs out any lines or veins on the eyelid leaving it as a fresh base. The only reason I would not repurchase is due to the price and there being more affordable options serving the same purpose. Overall a great product and if you are a high end primer junkie then another great addition to any collection!

I was really excited to buy this product as I had been eyeing it for a while but I'm sad to say its awful for me when I put it on it covers nicely but it just does not last! It comes off and I'm left with nothing on my eye after about half an hour really not a good product for me.

I bought the Benefit Boi ing & Lemon aid duo by the checkout at Ulta, I bought it on a whim because it was just $12 and I am a concealer junkie.
At first I just used the boi ing side to conceal my under eyes, I was skeptical about the yellow side. Not knowing that the lemon aid side was actually to conceal and prime on and around the eyelids I tried it as a concealer for some redness I had from an acne scar. It did amazing. It's the perfect consistency for concealing blemishes, it's not too dry and it's not too creamy. I use it on an eyeliner brush to get in there and pinpoint conceal and it does magnificent. I do it before I put on my foundation (BareMinerals) and although it's a little light, once the foundation is on top it sets it and makes it the perfect color.
Unfortunately they don't do the Boi ing/Lemon aid combo anymore :( it was the perfect size and it lasted me two years! I am very sad it's discontinued, however I believe you can buy just the Lemon aid by itself in a larger pot so I will do that and I'm sure that will last a LONG time! And on top of everything else, it doesn't break me out and I have VERY sensitive skin!
