Benefit Boi-ing Concealer

Its no secret that Benefit are one of my favourite beauty brands, and have been for a couple of years now. When I first started noticing my cholesterol marks under my eyes Benefit's Boi-ing concealer was the first high-end product I picked up to try and cover them up.

To be perfectly honest I think they did a pretty great job which is why I stuck to using the same products for years, before realising it was actually quite a lot of money to be paying out. Typically I had to buy two different shades (1&2) to create the closest colour to the marks as I could get, however this was costing me £35 (£17.50 each) a month with daily use of both shades, which isn't great when you're a student. Further down the line I'm now working part time and definitely can't afford those types of prices every month for makeup (as much as I would like to!), which lead me to start my 'Quest for the best concealer' posts.Honestly, so far I haven't found another concealer which have covered the marks up as well as the Benefit Boi-ing but that doesn't stop me from continuing my search. 

I will give Benefits Boi-ing concealer a mark of 9/10 as it covers both my dark circles and cholesterol marks incredibly well, however there is a possibility I may find one that completely covers them up so I can't go any higher with the mark for now! 

So for now I guess the quest continues...

Thanks for reading!


  1. Well I'm glad this worked for you! I bought this in a peachy shade as that is meant to cancel out pigmentation on darker skin tones. This did not do a thing for me, it's just sitting in my stash now :-( A tip when purchasing next time, I got mine from ASOS on sale it was £8.50

    1. Thankyou :)

      Oh wow thats such a bargain! I will definitely keep an eye out when purchasing in the future :) Its such a shame it did nothing for you, have you tried out some of the others mentioned in my quest for the best concealer posts, they may be of some use?


    2. I will defo check out those posts :-)

  2. I haven't tried this but it's so tempting!!! Have you tried the NARS Creamy concealer? That's such a great concealer - it blends beautifully and gives amazing coverage!! :)

  3. I am all over this post. I, too, am on a quest for the perfect concealer. I'm building up quite the concealer graveyard as I purchase and reject. I considered buying Benefit Erase Paste but I think my curiosity about Estee Lauder's Double Wear concealer is gonna win out ;)
