Benefit Review || Confessions of a Concealaholic

Hello! 

A few weeks ago I was wandering aimlessly around Frasers with a £20 voucher burning a hole in my pocket. I decided to get the 'Confessions of a Concealaholic' because it's great way of testing out different products.

It cost £28.50 and includes Erase Paste, two shades of Boi-ing concealer, Lemon Aid, Eye Bright and That Gal primer - not a bad deal! 

What did I like?

I love that you get two shades of Boi-ing - I mix them to get the perfect colour. I use it on spots, under eyes and any discolouration. I put my BareMinerals over the top and it stays in place all day! I would definitely repurchase this on it's own in future.

 I also liked the Erase Paste but was given shade 2, which is slightly too dark. I think it would be really good under eyes because it's so peachy toned. 
I'll try this out again when I get a bit of a tan.



Boi-ing Concealer (Shade 1/Shade 2)                                     
      Erase Paste (Shade 2)

Eye Bright is a light pink highlighter which I tried on the inner corner of my eyes, it was okay but nothing special.


What didn't I like?

I tried the primer under liquid foundation and under powder and it just didn't work for me. I found it left my face quite greasy. It's pink in colour so I can see why it would be brightening, but the formula didn't suit my skin type. 

I was surprised at my opinion on Lemon Aid. This is a creamy yellow corrector which counteracts any blueness or discolouration on the eyelids. I've read great reviews from people who only wear liquid eyeliner so use this on the lids. But for me, it creased really quickly.  



Would I recommend?

Definitely! I love that I was able to try so many products for only £28.50. I've always been curious about these products and probably would have purchased them at some point anyway to try them out. I'm sure this will last for a long time and when it's done, I'll know what I like enough to repurchase!

  1. I have this and I loved it!i think it's great that you can try lots of little products before committing to buying the full size versions! I didn't think much to eyes bright either :( xxx

  3. I have the full size 'that gal' primer and I really liked it to brighten up my complexion! I probably wouldn't repurchase though just because I didn't feel it did much to keep my make up on all day! Next on my list is the boi-ing concealer, wanted to try it for ages and heard so many good things about it! X
