Put your hand in the air if you don’t have dark under eye circles or blemishes. I do. And a lot! Especially in that place between the corner of the eye and the bridge of the nose where the glasses rest. So can you imagine who is my best ‘beauty product’ friend? You’re right, the concealer!!
I have a lot of concealers (more than I need, because let’s face it…I only have two eyes!) but as if choosing the best Foundation for the skin type wasn’t already tough enough, choosing the right concealer to suit our specific needs is another mission (not impossible, don’t worry).
Well, I tried two of the four benefit concealers on the market, to bring you my opinion on the ones that work (and the ones that don’t).
boi-ing Airbrush concealer
The first time I used this product I liked it – take the fact that I bought the wrong shade, but still used. (I bought no.2 instead of no.1)
I noticed that it hide some dark of my under eyes but only because it was darker than my skin. The problem? This concealer doesn’t go on smooth and fresh like they promised. The product goes on patchy and flaky, especially in the under eyes. No amount of blending makes it look good.
If you reapply it during the day it goes even worse. It makes my fine lines even more prominent. I had a birthday party where I used this product and in the photos, I look so old, I’m always miserable when I see it!
The packaging makes the product a lot bigger than it needs to be compared to the product you actually get.
After two months (I don’t know if this only happened to me) the product turned Orange and flakey on the package. So strange!
According to the website, the boi-ing airbrush:
- Sheer-to-medium coverage
- Lasts 10 hours
- Instant “airbrush” finish
boi-ing brightening concealer
I had such a bad experience with the airbrush concealer that I didn’t want to spend more money on a benefit concealer. But I gave it another chance….
First I can see some difference when I use this product. It covers my dark circles. I used it after applying the foundation or even alone. They’re still there but not so prominent.
It is easy to apply with fingers or a brush, without requiring a lot of product.
I like to use a little bit of powder after this because the formula is a little bit oily (but nothing too much, don’t worry). After some time it dries but I didn’t feel it cakey! It can be used all over the face in the places that need some coverage.
The packaging is smaller than the airbrush concealer which is good.
According to the website, the brightening concealer:
- Full coverage
- Ideal for dark circles
- Brightening melon undertones
- Creamy, blendable formula
- Radiant finish
Both Products are available in three shades (light, medium, and dark). If you have very light or darker skin, probably you won’t find a compatible shade. But for me, the light shade is perfect.
5.0 g Net Wt. 0.17 oz. (Airbrush) – 4.4 g Net Wt. 0.15 oz. (Brightening)
I read positive and negative comments about these two products. So I think that it all goes to the type of your skin. For me, the brightening concealer is a lot better than the airbrush, but I want to hear your opinion. Which is better for you?
