No..no...no. Creases like crazy. Flakes. Is it because I am 44 ? I prefer my dark circles to this concealer. I am now waiting for this to finish so I can justify bobbi browns corrector and concealer purchase.
I tried with eye cream without eye cream....
Benefit products are great and I love them...but maybe boing is for younger skins and not my 44 y/o.
I bought the MAC pro concealer corrector palette for NC 42- one lighter than the deepest in the range. it comes in 4 shade pallete. so I bought number 3 per say.
though the MA suggested the deepest NC45, but i am used to ignoring MA in Hongkong. They are clueless with any shade 'darker' than Rose.
great. Lots of shades to play with. Didn't flake like Boing.
But having said that Boing No 3 is my perfect skintone (the yellow tone) and MAC doesnt have that "YELLOW" tone

I am on my fourth boi-ing concealer. I absolutely can not live without it. It covers my acne scars and dark circles really well and stays on all day. I had melasma during pregnancy and this product even covered that really well. I am forever hooked on to this

I went into Ulta looking for the light shade of Erase Paste but opted for this product as Ulta was out of the Erase Paste I originally wanted. I am so happy with Boi-ing. I have patches of acne that tend to be inflamed and raised and nothing comes close to covering my problem areas up like Boi-ing does. The best part about this product is it's thicker texture. It needs to be applied with a brush and blends incredibly well. I would recommend this product to anyone that is looking to cover very obvious blemishes. Best $20 I have ever spent.

This concealer does it's job, for the most part. I'm not in love with it, but I don't dislike it either. It's supposed to be heavy duty concealer, but i'm not sure it covers as well as it claims. The packaging is cute, and the color that i bought 01 matches my fair skin tone pretty well. It does conceal blemishes and red spots for the most part and is the best liquid-y concealer I've tried so I might repurchase when I run out.

This stuff is great for blemishes and the redness around my nose. It's opaque and pigmented, a little goes a long way. I can always count on it to cover up the worst zits and acne scars. It lasts all day when set with powder.
I've tried to use it on my dark eye circles MANY times because of the great coverage. But I find it just doesn't work for me. The skin under my eyes is super thin and delicate and this concealer clings on to all my dry patches and ends up looking caky. When I over-moisturize to counteract that problem, it creases.

This concealer is cakey, messy and I found the color unusable for either under eye or on the face. Perhaps it is only young people or those more talented with make up who find it helpful. Unfortunately, like with Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage, I just find the consistency of this poor.

This is one of my go to concealers! It lasts all day and I think one of the best kept secrets of the makeup world. I have tried some top name and drugstore concealers, but this is the best in my opinion. It is not overly expensive and it lasts all day. It is easy to open and easier to use. I am on my 4th purchase of this product! Love it!

I like this concealer a lot. I am in between NC and NW 15 in MAC, and a beige 0 in Alima Pure, and the lightest shade, 01, is a good match. It looks darker in the pot than it does on my face. This concealer is very creamy, but not greasy. I can put it on blemishes on my forehead and it does not get any greasier than any other concealer I've used there. It is easily buildable and nicely pigmented. HOWEVER, for me, I can only use it on redness and blemishes around the face, not on under eye circles. When I put this under my eye, even the teeniest amount, it settles into lines. I have no undereye lines, so I don't know what this product is doing under there. That said, it is great for the rest of the face.
Creamy, easy to blend
Buildable coverage, from medium to full
Shade 01 is pretty darn light for us pale gals
Great for blemishes and redness
Creases under my eyes
Packaging is annoying to open and looks like it may allow the product to dry out- we'll have to see

I purchased this from Sephora online for 20 USD and I have had it for about a month.
It comes in a little pot with a screw on lid. I took a point off for this as I think a snap on lid would be more appropriate but it isn't a deal breaker for me. I have this in 01 Light which is the lightest shade. I have relatively light skin. I ordered this without swatching it and was a little nervous but it's perfect! It might be ever so slightly lighter than my skin but I can get away using it all over my face.
My favorite is to use it under my eyes. It covers dark circles so well. I usually use my finger to apply and blend concealer but with this I find it works best with brush. Be sure to set it with a powder as it is rather creamy and it will last all day. I think this will last me a long time as you only need the tiniest bit because it is so pigmented. However, when I run out, I will repurchase because I think it is worth it.

This seems to be a hit and miss, but for me it was a hit. This is actually my first concealer ever. At 19-almost-20, I finally discovered that the reason foundations didn't cover my red cheeks is because that's what concealer is meant for. Duh. With a little spot application of Boi-ing -shade 01 works for my super pale neutral/pink skin -I barely need makeup at all. Crazy, huh? It doesn't crease or crack on my dry skin, and makes covering up a breeze. Due to my paleness, I can put as much of this as I need on. Others with slightly darker skin may need to go lighter. I love the screw-top container, too. No worrying that it will flip open and spill expensive product all over my makeup bag. I'm only taking a lippie off for the price. You get a lot out of the container, but it's concealer, not liquid platinum...

This product just doesn't work well for me. I initially bought it to conceal my under eye circles, but it tends to show creases in the area even more than not wearing it. It works wonderfully on other areas of my face, (nose area, chin), to conceal any redness, but I wish it would have worked for my under eye area. Will not be buying this product again.

I really wanted something for my under eye area. Cream based products typically scare me because I do have oily skin. I also have oily skin around my eyes but I wanted to try this product since the #1 shade was a great shade for me. I have fair golden based skin (asian skin) and #1 is just slightly lighter than my skin tone, which is great for under eye circles. The concealer was a great color on me and it really did brings some "boing" back to my eyes. It made my eyes look bright.
However, as I said, I have oily skin. This does not last all day or even half a work day very well... It slipped around even with powder. I was disappointed. I would reapply this every 5-6 hours. It does have a tendency to sink into the creases if you're too heavy handed. Warm it up with your finger tips and put on a very thin layer. This has a medium/medium-strong pigmentation. I can see this working for women who don't have oily skin. I don't believe it works that well as a concealer because it doesn't seem to stay put very well and doesn't dry well like a good spot concealer should. I would just use this for under eye circles, honestly.

AMAAZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZING!!! This is my go to product on those lazy days when I wanna go au natural and just run out the house this stuff wakes up a sleepy face brightens up and hides those bags!

I just bought #1 shade less then a week and I am in love with it. I use concealer on a daily because I have under eye circles. I have to say when I first used this I thought it was going to be to sheer but after blending it in I saw that it worked really well. I well have to buy this product again. <3

Got this as part of a set along with their foundation, powder and primer. I already use the powder and primer and was excited to try the other products. I love this concealer. It's worth saying that in the gift set I have it comes in two shades which you can blend together for natural results. I don't think I could use just one shade of this and end up looking even slightly natural, but together the shades work well. I don't think it's too stodgy but I dislike overly liquid concealers. Covers my dark circles very nicely and stays put.

I actually bought this in the half Boi-ing, half Lemon Aid sample at Ulta, and I fell in love with this concealer! It's so much better than any industrial strength, or regular ones. Personally, I like it better than all my Mac concealers, and my Hard Candy. It's cream and DOESN'T CAKE. I have pretty bad under eye circles, and this conceals them almost completely ( I cover with Bare Minerals powder concealer) and doesn't cake into the creases. It's also good for blotchy spots on your face, but I don't like it for pimples. I think it's a little too strong and it just makes the pimple more noticeable. The only downside is that there aren't many color options too choose from, but if your skin is a shade lighter or darker then I would still buy because it blends well to match skin (but only a shade lighter or darker). This is my new favorite concealer, and I will be buying the full size again!

I neither hate or love this product.
It does the job for me, it covers really well, and have an alright staying power (about 6 hours on my oily skin).
It is one of my top concealers - but I don't think it is right for just anyone!
I am 24 years old, and very pale with pink undertones. I have acne prone skin and tend to get very oily - I also don't really have any wrinkles just fine lines under my eyes.
I have tried a gazillion concealers throughout my life, and my favorites are bobbi brown, mac and this one.
I usually have a hard time finding a color light enough, since I am so pale - but 01 is perfect for my skin tone.
I love that this concealer dries after you apply it and almost doesn't move!! (You have to warm up the pot before applying it though.)
What I dislike is its tendency to melt if you are in a very warm climate or feel very hot - then it gets into fine lines (I wore it on a trip to Asia) but at home (Denmark 10-20 degrees) it works just fine for me.
It is also the only concealer who have covered my veins so well :)
My Verdict is:
I like it and use it occasionally, however after I started using MUFE's foundations, I don't need a concealer anymore as it covers so well :)
I would NOT recommend it for gals with mature/wrinkly skin or people who have very dry skin! I would try it on before buying, if I lived in a hot climate and use powder to set it.
I would recommend it for girls with normal-oily skin with a minimum of undereye wrinkles (who live in a moderate/cool climate)

"Industrial strength concealer" - damn straight!!
Love this for covering blemishes or unevenness before my foundation. Makes everything even! Nice texture and easy to apply.
Shades are great. 01 is perfect for everday wear and 02 is great for going out when my make up is a bit darker.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair, Neutral Hair: Brown, Straight, Medium Eyes: Hazel
I purchase this after reading lots of reviews (some loving it, some hating it) and ended up being somewhere between those.
Some pros: shades greatly matches my skin tone (I use shade 01, and I'm Fairly Light in Bare Minerals when I'm not tanned), it is not scented, it doesn't cake on my face
BUT, honestly I expected much more from this concealer in several aspects:
1) it claims to be "industrial strength concealer" - where did they get it from? it is no way concealer with such strength, I would say mostly medium coverage, nothing more - it doesn't help to cover dark circles very much (yes to some extent, but not much as I expected from reviews)
2) the packing could be solved better, it is rather inconvenient
3) obviously the price - if it was "industrial strenght concealer", it would be so-so reasonable, with my experience from 1)? not really
I won't repurchase it in future and will be looking for some better concealer.

This is my go to concealer. I only use it under my eyes, but it lasts all day and doesnt smudge. I am very pale so finding a shade that isnt too dark can be a challenge this color is perfect. I dont use it to conceal acne, as I dont really have it. I have rosacea though and cant seem to find anything to use to cover that without settling into my pores and making them look larger. I pretty much use a primer or foundation to conceal that because all concealers seem to settle in.
