Benefit Boi-ing Concealer Review




I purchased this Boi-ing concealer in shade 01 after trying it in the Confessions of a Concealaholic set. I'm not sure I'd have spent £16.50 on a concealer before but this is worth, almost, every penny. (I say almost because I'd have preferred to keep that 50p and made it £16 ;) )


"Say good-bye to circles and shadows around your eyes with Boi-ing. Our industrial strength concealer camouflages those pesky problems without creasing, smudging or wearing off."


Boi-ing is available in 5 different shades which makes it quite easy to find one to suit any skin-tone. Benefit increased the number of shades up from 3. Shades 01 and 02 stayed the same whilst altering shade 03 and extending. I chose shade 01 after trying shades 01 and 02 in my concealer set but if you want to choose the perfect one for your I suggest either swatching the concealers at a Benefit counter or getting help from the Benefit MUAs.


I use this concealer mainly for my under-eye circles but it does a great job covering even the red-est of blemishes. This concealer gives amazing coverage and has a nice texture for being a cream concealer as it's not too thick or cakey.
I apply Boi-ing with my fingers, using the heat of my fingers to soften and blend.




I recommend this to any one who worries about dark circles under their eyes, to anyone looking for a thick concealer and to anyone who struggles to cover up blemishes. This concealer really is industrial strength!

Have you tried Boi-ing, what did you think? What's your favourite high-end and 'drug store' concealers?

    2. I've run into the same problem! It works great for the under-eye circles, but when I use it to cover up any other redness or scarring on my face it makes me break out. I wasn't positive that Boi-ing was the culprit but after not using it for a few weeks and letting my face clear up then using it again I had the same problems. Unfortunately I'm going to have to find another concealer for my acne scars, but I'm going to keep using it for my dark circles - it works wonders after a crappy night's sleep!

      Sidenote: Loving your blog Jenna!

    1. I have to agree, I've encountered my fair share of makeup artists who needed some lessons in customer service, but persevere there's loads of nice ones out there ;) xo
