Boing! Boing! Boing!
Benefit Boi-ing concealer, that is. B’s bestselling cream concealer is getting three new shades.
A sheer cream concealer designed to disguise under-eye circles and blemishes, Boi-ing has been part of the Benefit line for years. The new shades include a revamped shade No. 03, also known as Deep, and two new darker shades in 04 and 05, bringing the total number of shades to five.

I’ve actually Boinged before…and when I did, I didn’t feel like any of the colors really suited my NC42 skin. Now, among all of the shades, the new version of 03 seems like the closest color match for me.

I have friends who love to Boing, but most of the time, I need a little more coverage than this formula provides. Yesterday, when I tried 03 under my eyes, I could still see my gray and purple dark circles, clear as a cloudy day. And after a couple hours of wear, the formula began to settle into my fine lines.
Boi-ing may not have the coverage I need, but I’m still glad to see Benefit expanding the line. I’ve often wished for a wider range of colors across Benefit’s product lines.
If you find a shade that fits and only need light coverage for minor blemishes or light circles under your eyes, Boing! You’re in luck.
