When you need to cover up a blemish or dark circles concealer can be one of the most vital make up elements known to man. For years I’ve strived to find a concealer that will hide dark circles and give me back an all over fair complexion. So far I’ve tried virtually every concealer going (well it feels that way anyway) and still can’t say I’m truly satisified. They’re either too bright, too dark, just sink into your skin and simply diseppear or make you look like a panda.
So a couple of years back a friend recommend Boiing a industrial strength concealer. So this brings me onto the current review Benefit’s Confessions of a Concealaholic. At £32.50 it’s incredibly steep for a makeup product but it does include both shades of Boiing concealer (Boing 1 and Boiing 2), That Gal brightening face primer, Erase paste, lemon aid and eye bright.
This review is primarily about the Boiing shade 2 ladies so don’t get confused.
The saying less is more certainly applies when applying this concealer and after stroking the brush over once or twice you will have enough coverage for any darkness or marks. The result is suprisingly quite light and depending on whether you like that or not you can cover up with a powder finish.

Now there is a noticeable difference between the two photos (apart from the clothes of course) of a fresher look in the lower photo. You must take care when applying though as if you don’t rub it in properly you will end up with blobs of concealer all around your eye. The concealer does work well on covering up blemishes such as red marks too which I use it for but be warned it doesn’t stay on that long.
By about 5 a clock the product will have pretty much soaked into your skin and you will have little coverage left so don’t forget to reapply.
- Good coverage that lasts many hours
- Versatile so it can be used on both blemishes and dark circles
- Has a good coverage
- Strongest concealer on the market
- Although this product came in a pack the product alone can cost about £19 so it can be very expensive
- If you don’t apply it a certain way you will end up looking like a panda
