This review will be on the newly released/new reformulation of the Benefit Boi-ing Airbrush Concealer. This product is different from their existing line of Boi-ing Industrial Strength Concealer and is supposed to be a replacement/reformulation of their Erase paste. There are 2 variations in this product, which is a brightening concealer, comes in 3 color correcting shades. The one that I have is an airbrush concealer which also comes in three shades.
A waterproof, soft-focus concealer that delivers sheer-to-medium coverage. Blur, smooth, and conceal with the Boi-ing Airbrush Concealer. It’s a soft-focus, lightweight concealer that covers uneven texture and dark undereye circles, while reducing the look of fine lines with a flawless, natural-looking finish that lasts up to 10 hours.
My Experience with Benefit Cosmetics Boi-ing Airbrush Concealer:
Packaging: This concealer comes in standard tub in which you do have to dig your fingers or brush.
Texture/consistency: This is a very emollient ultra creamy concealer. I have used the Benefit Erase Paste in the past, but was never a fan of how thick it was so I am glad to see that while this product retains the same creamy texture, it melts easily into the skin and does not feel so heavy.
Pigmentation/ Blendability: I have the shade light-medium and it is such a perfect match to my skin tone that you may not even be able to see it in the swatch below. It has a light peachy tone which I love as it cancels out our natural bluish/purple tinged darkness under the eyes. Since it is very emollient and creamy, it blends effortlessly with your fingertips but works best with a sponge. If you have dark underlies, you will love the hydration and non-cakey feel this gives but that does mean that you cannot leave this as it is without setting. This is a perfect concealer to bake with as the very hydrating nature of this concealer balances out with the drying baking technique to give you an airbrush look.
It has sheer to buildable medium coverage which is more than sufficient for me.
Staying Power: Since I have oily eye area, I almost always bake with this concealer. The baking itself helps the longevity of a product by leaps and bound and I never notice any creasing or fading for over 7-8 hours.
Overall, I am very impressed with this product and will recommend it. Those with dry skin or people who usually use the baking technique will love this concealer.
