Boi-ing Concealer Range | Benefit Cosmetics

Benefit have just relaunched their concealers, and now have a uniform look! Their 3 old concealers have been revamped, repackaged and renamed as part of the boi-ing concealer family. The family includes, Hydrating concealer (fake up), industrial strength concealer (the original boi-ing), brightening concealer (erase paste) and the newest baby – Boi-ing airbrush concealer. The ones that have been repackaged are still the same formula we are familiar with.

The 4 concealers all come in adorable eraser packaging. It’s such a cute play on erasing imperfections- exactly what I would expect from benefit. They all come in 3 shades each (1, 2, 3)
I do feel the shade range is a little limited. I would love to see a 0.5 added as well as possibly a 4 and 5 to be more inclusive for all benebabes. All of the concealers retail for $34 each here in Australia which I think is a fair price.

Let’s talk about the newest one first. My first impressions swatching this was that it felt like a mix between fake up and the original Boi-ing. It feels so smooth, and glides on like a dream. It claims to be crease proof, waterproof, with a soft focus finish,  so it has some bold promises to live up to. I actually really have been enjoying this concealer. It has a light to medium – but buildable coverage, and it doesn’t sink into my expression lines.

I used shade 2 to cancel out my dark circles, shade 3 to add warmth around the outside of my face, and shade 1 to highlight and brighten the center of my face. It definitely had really good coverage. For all these before and after images I did not set the concealer with powder. I can almost get away with that for this concealer, but it looks much more flawless when set.

This is the original Boi-ing- one of the first products I tried from benefit, many years ago in a set. This is a drier formula than the other concealers in the range. I personally don’t use these thicker, drier concealers under my eyes, as I have drier under eyes and I don’t find they usually work well for me. But this works so well for spot concealing blemishes! It really has amazing coverage too.

In my before and after images below, it photographs amazingly! This is because of the matte finish. I didn’t actually realise how flawless it looks on camera until I was editing this blog post – maybe it will have to be my new filming concealer. If you have normal to oily skin and are looking for something that won’t budge off of your breakouts, pigmentation or other areas of concern then this will be perfect for you.
I am lucky enough to not struggle with breakouts regularly, but if I do- they’re so often on my cheeks. This makes it so difficult to contour. So I have been using shade 3 to contour when I not too heavily fake tanned, and it looks divine.

I personally find fake up such a catchier name than ‘hydrating concealer’ but the new packaging is so damn cute I will let it slide. My ‘fake up’ was defiantly well loved.

I really love this concealer for highlighting my face. Not only is it non drying, it’s actually dewy! So many popular concealers for highlighting have a matte finish, which can make it really heavy on your skin, especially if you’re on the drier side like me. If you have any dry patches around your nose and mouth this is so good to tone them down, but also hydrate and sooth them. I’ve seen them used as hydrating nude lipsticks- I gave it a go and it wasn’t actually too bad.

Now that I have darker shades I’ve tried them as a dewy bronzer (not contour) and it actually makes me look so radiant- I will be doing this all summer long.
I do find it can crease under the eyes if it’s not set very well, but if you have dry under eyes, it won’t cling to those patches like matte formulas. However being so light reflective, I would recommend setting it with a powder under the eyes, so it looks more flawless. As you can see in the before and after below – it doesn’t look ‘flat’ due to the light bouncing off it.

Boi-ing brightening concealer

Formally known as erase paste. This line runs more peachy to counteract the blue/purple tones usually found around our eyes. But if you have sun spots or darker pigmentation this will also work well. Because I have horrendous dark circles, I have tried a lot of correctors, and this is the most unique one. Most are a drier formula, similar to industrial strength, or a regular liquid with a doe foot. This one is much creamier, and almost the consistency of a lipstick that’s been left in a hot car. Because of this it is so emollient, blendable and easy to use.

You can see how it really cancels out those purple tones under my eyes. Here I used shade 1, but I definitely could have gotten away with shade 2. I only use a really small amount of correcter over my dark circles. Then I would usually follow up with foundation, and a lighter concealer through the centre of my face to create dimension.
