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.

Brooke from WV
My usual go to is the NARS radiant creamy concealer. This was dry and tacky in comparison. I gave it a chance before returning.
JBL from Athens, GA
Terrible! Of course the staff suggested this... they only suggest what they personally like or are told to sell and only the expensive products. I told them that I needed full coverage for under eye that would be moisturizing and good for super sensitive eyes. This was not what I needed! Very disappointed!
Allison from Wilmington, NC
This concealer covers very well and doesn't crease. Last through the humid NC weather and you don't even need to set it with a power.
I will be returning this product!
Bev from Fair Oaks, CA
I was told this was "cakeless". Well, it is not!
Shades 10-12 are dark skin friendly!
Melanated Benefit Stan from Dallas, TX
I wore this makeup (boing concealer + air stick foundation) to a wedding where I was dancing most of the night and was moving around constantly -- my makeup did NOT move! I wore it for 10+ hours and didn't touch up once. I love it.
Not careless but a decent concealer
Squid from Ohio
I'd say it's a pretty good full coverage concealer despite not being necessarily careless or creaseless. But it covers redness enough. It's a pretty basic concealer, in my opinion
Did Benefit Not Test This Stuff Under Eyes?
celizabeth from WI
This stuff is definitely the opposite of cakeless under the eyes! It dries fast and it's so full coverage that it clings to every little fine line and texture under my eyes. It's super hard to blend under the eyes. I cannot use it for under eyes which is what I had bought it for. Fortunately, it does offer some great coverage for pesky breakouts. Yet another issue is the lack of shade options. I tried three shades - the only three that could possibly work for me - and NONE of them were a good match. I kept this stuff because of the coverage for breakouts, but I have to mix it with other concealer to get a better color match which is super annoying and time consuming.
Really does what it says
Erika from NJ
I asked an associate to recommend a good under eye concealer to use by itself. I don't typically wear face makeup, especially day to day for work.
This product is great! I was skeptical because i did not like the old Boi-ing that came in the little pot. This goes on smooth and doesn't get caked or dry. Recommend!
I wish they would change the packaging
Dana the tired mom from Alabama
I use under my full coverage powder. I think the tube is silly looking. It looks like a pencil which I think is kind of juvenile. I'm in my 40s and would like a more mature looking packaging. I thing Benefit should consider changing the packaging for this product. If I were ordering online I would probably never have given this concealer a second look. You need to market to the clients that actually use the products, teenagers don't need concealer normally.
definitely not cakeless
TxMama from new braunfels, tx
Settled into every line & made my undereyes look crepey. No thank you.
Really love 💕 the texture of this conceler.
patticache from Amagansett NY
I like to start with applying conceler at the inner corners of my eyes 👀 and work my way out and up. My eyes are deep set and this technique immediately brighten them. You only need a little and don't forget to blend.
This is the BEST concealer I've ever used!!!
Ktothek from Muskegon, MI
BEST concealer I've ever used, it blends so smooth and long lasting
Favorite concealer of all time
Kathryn from VA
I converted from Tarte Shapetape and haven't looked back
Great product. Horrible packaging.
Laura from KS
What's great: This formula works great for me. I'm only using it under my eyes but it hasn't settled into fine lines or caked up on me yet. I'm setting (but not baking) it with the Laura Mercier under eye powder. The coverage is fine for me. I don't have super dark circles so I'm not sure if it is good for extremely dark circles. I haven't really used it anywhere else (maybe a couple of dots on my forehead?). Also, I haven't noticed it being dry or oily on me. I would describe my skin as normal to oily in the summer and normal to dry in the winter.
What's horrible: The little plastic insert that sweeps the excess off the applicator is really tight and every time I use it I splatter makeup all over everything. It's been on my mirror frame, on the wall, on my hand towel. I now open it over my sink to try to contain it but my sink stays splattered. I have to clean it every time I use this concealer. The very first time I opened it I wasn't in the bathroom and the plastic insert was so tight it came flying out. It got all over my clothes and all over a blanket. Thanks for ruining my stuff Benefit. I wish they would focus less on cutsey packaging and more on functionality. I don't need my concealer to look like an eraser. I need it to be in a usable package. I believe that the applicator tip is slowly being pulled off by the tight little collar. I will probably have to throw this away soon.
Even though I love the formula I will not re-purchase because half the product is on my walls and the rest will be wasted once the applicator finally tears up for good. I should have returned this right away.
Truly cake proof
Kristen from Memphis, TN
I've tried several concealers for under my eyes and I always end up with creases. Not with this one! It works perfectly and stays put 🙌🏼
Simone from Sunnyvale
Would not buy again
Kelley from Indiana
I was so excited to try this out, and I loved the color and how it blended, but it's definitely not cakeless. It settled into every single line I have and made me look much older. Super disappointing.
HappyGirl from CT
I used the Ulta app to determine my skin shade. A worker helped me choose. I honestly thought it was too light a color for my skin, but after I blended it, it looked okay. The amazing thing was since using this product I've gotten three compliments on how pretty my eyes are.
I would not buy this product again
Cynth from Sc
I really liked the color and how it blended but it left a crumbly mess under my eyes.
Yes I love it
Sins from Carson CA
Its is full coverage and its not heavy on your face and its full coverage you do need to put on a lot a little goes a long way its better than the tarte shape tape
Gigi from Laurel, MD
I like to have a flawless look.
linz from texas
this product covers any imperfection on my skin
Miriam from San Jacinto Ca
It covers all all the dark spots in face. Goes good under the make up. Non greasy. Last long. Best concealer i had tried.
Best concealer I have ever used 👍🏼

I really like this concealer. It doesn't cake up like some of the others I have used.
