Most Helpful Positive Review Very good camouflaging tool
Erase Paste was the first Benefit concealer I started using, and I still use. I began using it even for blemishes and the work it did on them was quite good, but now I've taken to mixing it with Ooh la lift for the under eye area, at least for those days when I've got more time to do my make up. For my blemishes, of which I've got quite a few due to hormonal reasons and also to stress, I prefer using Boi-ing. It's not half as dense as Erase Paste in texture, but it is very effective as well. My complexion is pretty fair, and I'd like a shade in between 01 and 02, because there are times when both look either too light (01) or a bit dark (02) on my skin. I'm pretty inclined to mixing and combining shades when it comes to makeup, because I believe that a lot of ideal combinations are hidden in those mixtures, and waiting to be found out; therefore, I mix both 01 and 02 and get my ideal concealing shade.
Boi-ing is a very good concealer, both in colour range and also in texture, and I've lately discovered another use for it: it can be an improvised foundation. Since I'm quite an early riser and, sadly, haven't got as much time as I'd like for a thorough but leisurely make up, which is what I really like, because I must leave home soon for work, what I've taken to doing is as follows: first, I apply Boi-ing on my blemishes, mixing shades 01 and 02, which I can also find in two kits (Confessions of a Concealaholic and How to look the best at everything in light); then, I apply some Porefessional on my face for an additional mixture that leaves my face with a lovely aspect: concealed pores, the blemishes don't look half as angry as they did before anymore, and with a subtle, yet visible veil of colour, as if it was an improvised liquid foundation; and last, but not least, I can always use some Hello Flawless powder; therefore, I apply some of that in my choice shade, and I'm quite ready to walk out the door.
Not only do I do this when I'm in a hurry to make it to my work on time and look quite alright, but I also do it when I want to be more at ease and without any hurry, enjoying every step of my make up, and in that case I add a little bit of That Gal, for a luminosity extra.
I quite like Boi-ing, applying it both under and over foundation, I find it very useful and natural and, provided you choose the right shade for you, it is a very good camouflage.
Most Helpful Critical Review Just Not a Good Daily Concealer
I was shopping for concealer at a retailer and was initially inquiring between Erase Paste and Fake-Up. The woman assisting me immediately dismissed those two in favor of the Boing and said, for dark circles like mine, I wanted the "better" coverage of Boing. I have very dark circles and I'm always on the hunt for "the one" as concealers go, so I listened and let her try it on me. In the store, it wasn't terrible and I bought it.
Got it home and I've found that it creases horribly and between gradually wiping it off throughout the day to fix creasing and it's innate heaviness, it's just a horrible all-day wear concealer. It doesn't blend well and, after looking at it more in natural light, it looks like it's just sitting on top of my skin under my powder or BB cream and powder. I've noticed my skin also tends to feel a little greasy where I've used it (under eyes, around my nose, blemishes) and not in a creamy way, but just like it's separating after being on my face awhile and all that's left is the grease.
Ultimately, if I could remember where I put the receipt to return it...I would in a HEARTBEAT.

Lots of coverage and not too cakey when set with powder BUT I think the price went up from when it initially released. Even so, this is my go-to.
I've been buying Boi-ing Cream Concealer for years!!
Amy from Cave Creek, AZ
I highly recommend this product as it really covers up uneven skins tones and blemishes. It's very light & creamy, yet covers very well. It isn't waterproof so you'll have to reapply after the pool or beach.
Not for fair skin types!
socalbrohoe from La Jolla, CA
Really wanted to love this concealer, but I have very fair, pale skin (that's very oily too) and the lightest shade they make was just too dark/orange for me! Wish they would make another lighter/cooler shade for us fair skin types! Please?!
Great coverage but product too small for the big price
Cloudy from Humble
Great coverage! But for such high of a price it's not enough product.
Kate73 from Hong Kong
It is actually cake under my eyes, such a disappointment! Very heavy , don't like the texture, money wasted
Latindama from Florida
This concealer is great for covering my under eye bags. I remember getting this concealer years ago when the packaging was different. It really gets the job done at covering because of its thick consistency.
Lexi from Columbus, OH
Had a monster imperfection pop up the day before I had to be in a wedding. Went in and cried, "I need something to cover THIS." She suggested the industrial strength concealer. It lasted the 12+ hours I had the make up on and was easy application for someone who uses makeup like once a year.
Not my fave
Puliswifey from El Cajon, CA
I had such high hopes when I tried this concealer. However, it ended up being quite cakey on the skin and doesn't layer well. Another issue I had was the coverage, it just doesn't cover as well as it claims. There are a ton of other benefit products that I like better. This product just isn't it for me.
I would buy again. This is not my first purchase of this pr

This concealer is by far the best I have ever used. I use it daily. Blemishes. Scars. Age spots. I'm in my 40's and this product is amazing!!!
gingerelle12901 from Columbus ga
I love this product it covers dark circles and breakouts pretty good the lightest shade is perfect for me I have dry skin and its the only product I've tried that doesn't settle into wrinkles or make my skin look scaly
I would buy again
Kris from Chesterton In
I really liked it
Required from OH
This is the all time best concealer, which I use for a full coverage foundation. It's convenient for compact carrying and doesn't sit too heavy or clog pores in the middle of summer if you use a modest amount. The color options are also not too yellowish but not too orange and blend very well with skin tones.
My holy grail makeup product
Megan from United States
This is the very best concealer that has ever been made. I'm sure of it. Not only is shade 1 an exact color match for me, it performs immaculately. I'm in my 40's so even the best concealers settle into my fine lines by afternoon, especially around my eyes, but NOT this one. I also use it to even out a few areas in my face on days when I don't wear foundation. It's perfect and completely seamless when used this way also.
Covers and lasts all day!
Allison from Wilmington, NC
This concealer covers everything! Works great to cover acne scars and dark circles. It lasts all day, even during humid days.
Luci from Houston
Very nice coverage.

I wanted the Boing Brightening Concealer that I've always used. No longer available. Hope this concealer works for me.
