I don't know about you, but I always find myself buying new concealers. I've always suffered with quite bad dark circles and am forever searching for a miracle concealer to make them vanish completely, well Benefit's 'Boi-ing' and Soap & Glory's 'Kick Ass Concealer' come pretty close. They are both really popular & talked about concealers. I bought the S&G concealer a while back but never really used it much as I was being loyal to my Collection concealer, but after recently buying bo-ing, I discovered that the 2 are very similar... They both have a similar consistency and are in very similar sized packaging. So what is the difference between the 2, which is the best?
In the photo above I have applied each concealer to one side of my face (apologies for the brightness, it's very gloomy outside today so I had to brighten it for you to be able to see anything!) As you can see, there isn't much difference between the 2 at all, apart from Boi-ing having slightly better coverage around my dark circles. They both have their pros & cons, S&G is better in the respect that it has 2 different colours in the pot, one for blemishes and the other for dark circles, it also has a setting powder & mirror in it, making it better for 'on the go' fixes. Whereas, Boi-ing I feel has better coverage and stays on a lot longer, so there is no need for top ups throughout the day as S&G did seem to separate a bit more under my eyes and needed reapplying every few hours. Here is who I think wins each quality:
Staying power: bo-ing
Shade choices: boi-ing
Verdict: Both concealers are very good and similar, but I think boi-ing is the winner for me! Although I love the compact case that the S&G comes in and how convenient it is, I prefer a concealer that I don't have to keep topping up and boi-ing doesn't seem to separate on my skin too which is a bonus! You definitely get what you pay for, Benefit you have won me over again! However, if you don't want to spend £17.50 on a concealer as it is a little pricey, I would definitely recommend the S&G Kick Ass Concealer at £10 as it is a really good concealer and still one of my favourites - especially for my handbag.
Let me know if you have tried either of these & which one is your favourite!
