This is what it says on the Benefit website:
This multitasking FULL COVERAGE liquid concealer hides it all, from dark undereye circles to blemishes & discoloration.…yet it feels lightweight & doesn’t cake or crack. The Cushion Tip creates a smoother than smooth application and blends seamlessly for longwearing, waterproof** coverage.

So, Benefit just came out with this concealer, and when I read the claims on it, I couldn’t resist, but I did get a little disappointed when I tried it.
Now, when it comes to concealers, I usually use them to cover my dark circles, and since this claims to be full coverage I expected it to do that, but it didn’t.
I mean, it did cover them a little, but I wouldn’t say that it’s more than a medium coverage, which did disappoint.
However, when it comes to covering blemishes and discoloration, it works just fine, but I find that my foundation covers that more than good enough, so I don’t really think that this is one that I’m gonna get a lot of use out of.
Now, when it comes to the claim that this is a lightweight concealer that doesn’t look cakey, I have to say that I agree if you only use one layer, but it is a little more on the heavier side once you try to build it up, so I would recommend that you use this sparingly.
And it is a little on the drier side, and it does dry very quickly, so I find that it’s best to do one eye at a time.
But, the thing I really like about this is that it doesn’t crease, and it does last all day, so it’s not the worst I’ve tried, but it’s not the best either.
So, overall I think that this is a concealer that will work for you if you don’t have too dark under-eye circles, or if you just have a little discoloration you’d like to cover, but I don’t think that this is a must have.
This is available on Benefit cosmetics in 12 shades for $22.
