From the Brand:This award-winning concealer camouflages dark circles, minor
imperfections and discoloration without creasing or fading. Even
better…the industrial-strength formula is now available in FIVE shades,
with a full range from light to deep. Now all gals can be
imperfection-free. WHAT ELSE YOU NEED TO KNOW: Favorite shades 01 and 02 stay the same, with a new 03 shade and extended range to include 04, 05.
My Thoughts: If you've read my review of the Benefit Erase Paste, you know that I'm a HUGE fan of the Benefit concealers. I've been using Boi-ing for years now, and it's never let me down. There's a reason they include the whole "industrial strength" part on the packaging- this stuff works! I'll admit, I'm not a huge fan of it for the under eye area. The consistency of this concealer is on the drier side, which doesn't always sit well on the typically-dry undereye area of most women. However, that drier consistency makes it perfect for sticking to a breakout. Pimples don't have the same surface texture of the rest of the skin around it, making creamy concealers a poor choice for coverage with staying power. Even notice how the creamy concealers just seem to slide off the pimple and settle around the edges of it? Instead, use a bullet tip eyeshadow brush to dot a dry concealer onto the breakout, and you'll get much better staying power that sticks only to the breakout!
I was getting ready to say that my only negative feedback was the limited shade range (Benefit does seem to cater to the pale people of the world), but I just saw on the website that they have expanded the range with three new shades! Wa-hoo! I'll most definitely be picking some up for my makeup kit once I've surpassed my No-Buy Challenge deadline in August.
Final Verdict: Would I buy this? Um, did you read that last sentence? Oh yeah, I already own it for myself, and I'll be buying more to use on clients soon! Come on, August! Momma needs some more makeup!
