Benefit's Confessions of a Concealaholic

Image source

Hi, my name is Stephanie and I’m a concealaholic, well not exactly but I sure do love it!

So when I saw this palette online at Benefit, I though it was quite fitting and a great excuse to try out some of the different concealing and brightening products from their range.

The palette, Confessions of a Concealaholic contains five of their best concealing and brightening products and includes:

That Girl – Brightening face primer
Erase Paste – Brightening Camouflage for Eyes and Face
Boi-ing 1 & 2 – Industrial Strength Concealer
Lemon Aide - Colour Correcting Eyelid Primer
Eye Bright – Instant Eye Brightener

The palette also contains two double ended concealer brushes and a booklet containing illustrated pictures on how to use and apply each product. The packaging is quite cute and resembles a lockable diary and includes a nice size mirror. The products included are sample sizes but I find it’s a great way to try before you choose to buy your favourite in its full size.  

My favourites from the palette include:

That Girl Brightening Face Primer – Great multi purpose product and can be used as a foundation primer or as a highlighter over your makeup. The pink pearlescent formula is silky to apply and is a glycerine based (applies like lotion) which allows your makeup to stay put and adds a bright sheen to your completion – it smells yummy too.

Boi-ing Industrial Strength Concealer – Which is a waxy based concealer, however don’t let this put you off. Boi-ing quickly becomes smooth and manageable when warmed with a finger or concealer brush. I mix 1 & 2 together for the perfect coverage which I didn’t find it to crease or become cakey. Boi-ing is great for full coverage and concealed my dark circles like a dream.

Lemon Aide Colour Correcting Eyelid Primer – I have been wanting to try colour correcting products for a while as I have redness is some areas and my eyelids are quite sheer. I like Lemon Aide as it colour corrects my eyelids, hiding any visible light veins and doubles as a great primer too. As yellow is great for counteracting dark colours, I also use Lemon Aide on early mornings (or the morning of the night before) to diffuse dark circles before I tackle them with Boi-ing.

So, are you also a concealaholic like me?

  1. what were your thoughts on Erase Paste? I have horrid under-eye circles and am keen to know more about it :)

  2. I love Boi-ing, probably my favourite concealer of all time for under-eye circles. Haven't tried any of these other products though.

  3. My friend bought this back for me from the UK and I love it!!! Love "That Gal" Primer and the cute packaging gets extra points from me :)

  4. I love benefit, all their products are packaged so fun and different. I've been wanting to try Boing for ages, I have Erase Paste and I really like that. You should try 'High Beam' its by Benefit and I love it.

  5. I'm nearly finished my second kit! My faves are the Eye Bright and Boi-ing in the lightest shade. Love Benefit so much!
