It’s Benefit day at we heart this! We’ve had a few of their amazing products cross our path within the past couple of months. Don’t miss out on these recently released beauties! ~wht
Welcome to the world of a Conceal-o-holic. My world, to be exact. I’ve long loved concealing products, mostly out of necessity. I inherited ruddy skin, mild acne, and permanent eyeshadow (how lucky am I?) HOWEVER, you would never know these things thanks to Benefit’s Confessions of a Concealaholic. Plus, Benefit has a sweet story behind their fun brand that only enhances my love for this kit!
Everyone here at wht is aware of Benefit’s amazing propensity for presenting quality products in a unique and entertaining manner. Their packaging tells an enticing story long before you even try the product. When I received this clever kit in the mail, I was immediately enamored at the sight of a bright color palette and great copy! (Seriously, the instruction manual and descriptions are brilliant.)
Since I’ve never tried Benefit’s concealers, this kit was a great way to find the right product(s) before committing to a larger purchase. Sometimes sample-sized kits are not worth the money, but when it comes to concealer you should always try before you buy. Concealer is one thing that can be difficult to get just right.
I think anyone with fair to medium skin tone will find a product or two to love in the Confessions of a Concealaholic kit. I especially like how easy it is to match your skin tone using the the two shades of Boi-ing concealers that you can mix to find your perfect match. It’s fab for covering up redness, acne, and dark spots. I’ve found it is best to apply a generous layer of moisturizer just before using the Bo-ing for perfect results. This was my favorite product because of my specific needs.
But there are so many other great coverage products to try in this clever kit! The wht-reviewed Erase Paste is fantastic for medium under-eye coverage. Lemon-Aid and Eye Bright (aren’t these the best names?) both work to brighten your eyes with creamy coverage and repair the last-night’s-musical-themed-party-got-out-of-hand look. (I think my all time favorite Benefit product is the Eye Bright pencil – I’ve worn through three pencils – end to end – and have yet to find a better brightener and concealer for under my eyes then this pink hued, creamy stick ~ Tyna). And when you need to spice up your evening look, use That Gal Face Primer to create glowing cheeks.
I’m a fan of this kit, can you tell? But Benefit has other great primers too. Like the Stay Don’t Stray Primer that preps, protects, AND perfects the eye area! A few testers had the chance to review this newish release from Benefit that also prevents eyeshadow creases. Enough said, right?
Oh, and did I mention it is a 360 degree primer? According to Benefit, “This dual-action primer works 360 degrees around the eyes to make concealers and eye shadows REALLY stay put. Concealers never crease and eyeshadows stay vibrant and true…”
