Finding the perfect under-eye concealer is like searching for your shoe size at a sample sale—time-consuming and often fruitless. As someone who sports hereditary dark circles, lack of sleep-related bags, and a few budding crows feet, I spend countless days test-driving concealer after concealer in a quest to find one that will lighten, brighten, soothe, and stay put without creasing or caking. So far, my pursuit has been fruitless, ending in frustration and tagged pictures I wish I could forget.
When Benefit rebooted its most popular concealers with new monikers and packaging under the Boi-ing Concealer Collection (at $20 a pop), my ears perked up but only slightly. I've been let down by adorable pink branding and charming product names before. Each of the brand's new products targets a different under-eye ailment with various textures, formulas, and shades. I tried each one—first swatching it against my arm and then layering them along my under-eyes, lid, and brow bone.
