Advantages: Hides dark circles and imperfections
Disadvantages: Expensive at full price
I purchased this concealer off eBay as it was a little too expensive instore. I paid £6.99 for my pot as it was listed as "seconds", due to the bashed packaging. However the concealer itself was fine - no marks or scratches. It was just the box that was damaged. It's £16.50 in Boots, significantly more expensive than what I paid!
The concealer is great for hiding dark circles under the eyes. It helps to even out your skin tone - hiding the evidence of the night before! I find the concealer easy enough to apply. I apply it gently with my fingertips, dotting the concealer on first before I rub it in - the store assistant kindly told me to apply it this way. The concealer goes on well without feeling too heavy and the lighter colour blends in well with my pale skin. You can't tell that i'm wearing it once it has been blended in - so i've been told anyway!
The concealer hides my dark circles, making me look more awake and younger, which is a great thing! I am NOT old aged 26 but it definitely makes your skin look more youthful as it hides "bags" and makes your entire eye area look much more radiant and it leaves you with glowing skin too.
I would recommend this concealer to all - especially people with paler skin tones like myself.
I also like the packaging as you can see the concealer underneath the see-through lid, which I like as you can grab a colour quickly and go!
Summary: A good concealer from Benefit - Great for pale skin
