REVIEW: Benefit Boi-ing Concealer

Wowzers!  I can't believe it's March already.  Time sure does fly by.

So, I was looking for a concealer that will help cover up my dark circles because lately they have gotten worse (must be my lack of sleep and financial stress).  I finished up my MAC Studio Concealer and the Benefit Paste in Medium which has an orange/peachy tint that helps cover up dark circles really well. However, I thought I'd try something different.  So for the past 2 weeks I've been using Benefit's Boi-ing Concealer in Medium.


What it claims:
According to benefitcosmetics.com, this concealer camouflages dark circles, shadow, and discoloration for a seamless, natural-looking finish without creasing or fading.

My Opinion:
It's quite creamy and helps brighten up my under eye but doesn't really cover up my dark circles like other concealers I've used.  It also settles into fine lines and when I use powder to set my concealer it looks cakey.  It's not long-lasting and I find myself having to apply it throughout the day.  I really wanted to love this product but it's not doing what its suppose to do - conceal my dark circles!!  So I've decided to use this product to conceal blemishes and brighten the under eye area instead.

Have any of you used this product?  Any concealers you love?

Hi, i just purchased this is the same shade "02" and absolutely love it! i understand that not everyone will have the same result as i did using this concealer; it does a beautiful job brightening my under eye area and it does help conceal whatever i need it to. I have oily skin and i have not experienced any bad cakey looks or it settling in fine lines. I think it looks great and natural on me. Sorry it didn't work for you.
