I have been lamenting my lack of a good concealer to hide those big red mosquito bite spots on my face for a few days as all my concealers were sheer coverage under-eye concealers. When I got pretty desperate and started rummaging around my drawer to see if I had any that would nicely hide those ugly spots, I happened to come across my Benefit eye contour kit that I used to use every single day when I first got it, and completely forgot about after a few months!
I opened the palette and lo-and-behold, the kit contained the Boi-ing concealer in the shade no.02! To be honest, I never thought much of this concealer a few years back, but! I probably didn’t care that much about my skin then and didn’t think it was that big of a deal. As I have grown and matured (ahem), I realized that this baby did the trick! It is really awesome! I love the texture, it applies on like a dream and it is creamy with a nice consistency, not too watery and not too thick. It is buildable so if you only need sheer or heavy converage, this gem still works!
From Benefit’s website:
This kit contains: boi-ing medium, industrial-strength concealer, alabaster pink base shadow, cocoa shimmer contour shadow, rich chocolate brown liner shadow, two brushes for easy application and an illustrated, step-by-step professional makeup lesson.
Here’s the picture of my annoying mosquito bites before covering them:
A swatch on my arm:
Here’s a swatch to show you the consistency and colour of it. Unfortunately, I think I have become fairer than I was when I bought this, so as you can see it doesn’t completely match my skin tone. No matter though, since it provides such awesome coverage, I layered this to cover up the redness first, then use a bb cream of the correct shade and stippled it over!
Here’s a quick eye look I created with this handy palette =)
Have you guys tried the boi-ing concealer and eye contour palette before?
I absolutely love it and am so glad I rediscovered it! It’s definitely going to appear in my August favourites and it is already a handbag staple for me!
I’m still hunting for a good concealer so if you know of any, so let me know in the comments bubble above!
I hope you have a lovely week,
Ta for now!
