Most Helpful Positive Review Amazing Concealer w/ Great Coverage ❤❤
First Impressions -
Anyway, overall I would say I really like this concealer. I try to avoid things like this because of my sensitive/oily skin type, but by far this has been living up to my expectations.
First of all, it came in a very pretty and light-colored packaging and the item itself had a very cute design. It has the design of a medium-sized pencil and the main frame is glass with black writing on the front. Its very simple, but cute.
Inspecting & Applying -
Now, when opened, it doesn't have a strong nor offending smell. Its very faint, which is a go to when you are not looking for one laced with chemicals.
As for the concealer itself, it has a slight thicker texture than other concealers I have used. Yet, with the cushion tip, it made it quite easy to apply it despite this. It smoothed out very easily and blended very evenly.
Though, at first do to its color, I mostly used it around my eyes as a test. But, it passed very efficiently at hiding my dark circles and unevenness around my eyes. So, only after then, I used it as a full coverage concealer. In which, it did even better. It hid my dark spots and my blemishes quite effectively with an overall smooth finish. So, I absolutely love the option of both coverage options.
This product's NO.10, kinda reminds me of M·A·C Pro Longwear Concealer NC45, but comparably better in feel & quality.
It overall looked amazing. It also felt good on my skin and blended well with other makeup. I didn't have any allergic reactions when using and my oily skin didn't disrupt the concealer too much. It felt very lightweight on my skin and it did live up to its claims of not caking. It stayed on evenly and lasted me quite long throughout the day.
I have yet to try out its waterproof compatiblities, but it lives up well to its others. So, by far, I haven't had any issues, but this is a wonderful concealer I was very excited to try and I am very glad I did.
I received this product complimentary for test and review.
Most Helpful Critical Review Why is this so heavy??
I received this product for free from Benefit (through an app which I am not able to log into on my cell phone or tablet so I am writing it here on my PC) as part of a contest and I couldn't wait to test it out and wear it; however I found that some of the claims such as the waterproof were not so accurate.
I was easily able to wash the concealer off without any soap and while the application wasn't cakey to begin with the longer I wore it the heavier my face began to feel and the feeling that my skin wasn't getting any air was very noticeable.
I also found that this was not as full coverage as some other brands that I have used in the past. The coverage when blended out looked streaky / splotchy on my face against the foundations I tried it with. I am pretty sure it pulled up the drug store foundation when I tested it out.
The cushion tip seemed to hold onto the product well, but when swiped barely anything came off the applicator onto my skin.
Finally the shade range seems a little limited with only 12 shades to choose from, I am a little bummed out there.
The packaging is very cute as the unicarton is definately some aesthetically pleasing colors. I found the pencil eraser tip to be very adorable on the product itself and it was very light weight all around. It's small and easily tossed into a makeup bag or kit and taken when you're on the go.
For the price I would say it's a fair deal and I know not all shades have the same formula as different undertones and shades require different mixes of ingredients. But I am disappointed in the product after having waited so eagerly to test it out and wear it for the first time.
Again I did receive this product for free in a contest from Benefit through an app.

I have dry skin, this can sometimes looks good , sometimes just look so bad. After multiple attempts, I finally give up, not recommend for dry skin.
Sometimes what works great for youtubers does not really work for me.
Trying too hard to be Shape Tape
Shan from Virginia
The coverage of this concealer is fine but not fantastic (granted, I have SUPER dark under-eye circles, so it's hard to find anything that completely covers them). However, it gets way too cakey and it creases like crazy. It is also extremely drying, even on my oily skin. I think it's supposed to be a dupe for Shape Tape, but honestly, I'll just spend the extra $5 and go with Tarte. Also noticed that it breaks me out if I use it to spot-cover. Won't repurchase.
Good concealer but shade range
Hannah from USA
This is a good concealer I'm just made abt the shade range this is unacceptable it's 2020 this should not be a problem
Better than shape tape!
Leah from Boston, ma
I've been using tarte shape tape for a while (probably like a lot of you 😂) and it was just too drying for me and was causing breakouts. This concealer is a little lighter in consistency and easier to blend out, not as drying, is FA safe and does not break me out, but still lasts all day and doesn't crease. Winnnnnnnner!
Stays all day
Jewel Marie from Rochester NY
I love to use this on a bare face. I apply just a tiny bit under eye and on any blemishes. Then gently blend. LOVE IT
Shella from Boise ID
I love the consistency of this concealer. I went into the store and asked for a full coverage concealer to cover a bruise. This almost did the trick. I would say it's more medium to full coverage than full coverage. After putting foundation over it, some of it rubbed off. It does get into creases a little but not as bad as some concealers and it wasn't cakey. Glides on effortlessly. It's going to be one of my favorites but I didn't give it 5 stars because it doesn't provide total coverage.
Roytan from Felton, DE
I have tried several concealers due to broken blood vessels,on my cheeks. Non cakes, hides the vessels and is waterproof. I would like a smaller size since a little goes a long way and would be better to not contaminate the tube.
Mostly love this product
Thirtysomething from Texas
This concealer is GREAT on my under eyes. It totally covers my dark circles without settling into my fine lines, caking, creasing or drying. However, this is not for highlighting/contouring. The coverage was patchy when placed over my foundation and didn't blend well at all. Perfect concealer for under eyes but just "meh" for everything else. Be prepared to buy a second product for your contouring needs.
Nini from Tampa fl
For me it's one of my favorites so far , hasn't creased on me and lasts all day 🖤
No Crease Concealer
MissMV from Orange County
Really brightens up the eye area.
Dani from Los Angeles
I honestly am an in between feeling. There are days it does the job— no creasing and no cakey-ness of any sort. But the days it does crease it's creases BADLY, and it gets so cakey. My eyelids have a lot of skin and the lines are pretty steep, they've been that way my whole life, so I need this to really work. I've had this concealer for a while but I don't think I'd purchase it again.
Exactly what I was looking for
Susan H from San Jose, CA
I was switching over from MAC HD highlighter because of the hassle of going to the mall. I had no idea what to look for. Even during covid I got the best match possible to the MAC.
I WAs a little concerned after reading reviews about it being dry and cakey. But my experience was completely the opposite. It went on great, very smoothly and evenly without settling into my fine lines and wrinkles.
Cakey and creases
Amayes from Cypress, tx
I will continue to search for a creamy concealer... I had high hopes for this. In my opinion, it enhanced my creases, was very cakey and drying. Everyone is different though.
Really Liked This Concealer
Mary from Georgia
Purchased this concealer on the 21 days of Beauty and was very impressed. Since I was unable to sample the color due to the covid situation, I took my chances and picked up a color that ended up being a shade too light. I kept it anyway as the color is a very forgiving . Would recommend.
Sarah from OH
Not full-coverage, very thin formula. Not for dark circles.
Bad news from Longview, Texas
It was a great coverage but I had to throw it away because my eyes started developing red rashes around them and burning, it began after a few days of using. I will be sticking to my Tarte Shape Tape Concealer. Only bought it because it was on sale and wanted to try. I
Not full coverage
Gg from Bc
If ur a shape tape kinda girl, this isn't as good so just get shape tape
Wouldn't buy again because it made my eyes water
Cher211 from Fernandina Beach, Florida
My daughter and I each bought one. It ended up irritating my eyes but not hers. So I must just be very dry to this product.
Miracle from Bay Area
It covers every crease and no flashback in photos
Julie from USA
I don't know why it took me so long to try this concealer, but I'm actually in love with it now! It truly doesn't crease under my eyes as long as I set it with a bit of powder. It's reminiscent of Tarte's Shape Tape, but less drying, a bit cheaper, and easier to work with, in my opinion. My new favorite concealer for sure!
So cakey and set in fine lines
Allie from CA
I was super excited to find something that wouldn't sink into my lines and cake but this was not it. I tried with and without primer and thick and thin lines and blended like crazy. It ws terrible! It caked and i couldn't get my lines to even be less visible. I set it as well, no good. I'm returning it.
Lacey from California
I really do hate this. It does not blend like at all. I have put it on my face and then started blending immediately after and it still won't blend or spread. It's insanely dry, cracks, creases, and doesn't cover. It makes my under eye so dry and flaky and doesn't cover my pimples. It oxidizes after a while so you can tell where I've put my concealer which is really embarrassing. Plus benefit tests on animals so if you're debating whether or not to get this just don't.
Love the concealer, but...
Sndaly825 from Palmdale, CA
This is a great concealer, I love that it's slightly tacky when blending with a sponge and it blends very easily. I have tan to dark skin and it works great for me and the shade is great. The only thing I dont like is how it creases after wearing for awhile. its not as bad as some others that I've tried, but still playing around with it.
The best concealer I have ever used
KayWaWA from Federal Way
I am so happy that the young lady in the store recommended this product to me. I really really like it and it looks very natural
Full coverage but cakey
Rani from LA
I really liked the coverage but it settled in my fine lines and emphasized my wrinkles.
