Benefit’s Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer comes in a pink cardboard box on which the shade and properties are inscribed. Its glass container is shaped like a pencil with a rubber tip to indicate that this concealer does wonders in erasing all under-eye blemishes. The packaging’s design is very unique and distinct compared to that of other concealers that come in a basic glass packaging. As for the applicator, it’s long and wide enough to speed up the application process.
This concealer is available in 12 shades ranging from light to darker tones.
We tried out shade #4 (Light Cool)
Due to its relatively thick formula, blending it out thoroughly is essential for a natural look. We recommend using the provided applicator brush for that. Benefit emphasizes the importance of the “blend, blend, blend” step as a tip on its official website.
This concealer smells like chemical products to a small extent, but it doesn’t cause any irritation.
The goal behind using this concealer is to hide black under-eye circles and blemishes and fully cover them. That’s exactly what this product does. It’s true that it takes a longer while to apply compared to other concealers, but it gives excellent results regardless.
It was capable of completely hiding all blemishes around the eye area, whether skin blueness or redness, with one single layer. It also added a remarkable glow to this area, and it lasted for an entire day with no need to retouch.
The reason it’s named Cakeless Concealer is that according to Benefit the brand, said concealer neither cakes nor cracks up under the eyes. Truly so, it looked exactly the same from the moment we applied it up until it was time to remove it, which is a perk that saves a lot of time and effort when it comes to makeup retouching.
Moreover, we tried it out on two skin types: dry and oily skin to observe the difference in results. In terms of dry skin, it required thorough blending in order to be absorbed well, but it still looked nice and fresh. On that note, we recommend applying eye moisturizer before applying concealer to protect the area from any additional dryness. As for oily skin, the concealer did a great job in erasing any traces of sebum as it turned out completely matte.
This concealer retails at 31.6 USD per 5 ml in Lebanon. Its price is similar to that of other high-quality concealers like Urban Decay’s All Nighter Waterproof Full Coverage Concealer at 32.9 USD for a small quantity of 3.5 ml or Bassam Fattouh’s Fits All concealer at 34 USD.
