Benefit users - Foundation / Concealer help please

kjean2kjean2 Posts: 145Registered Users
I just recently tried Benefit (bought Dr. Feelgood, the Realness of Concealness mini kit, and Big Beautiful Eyes kit). I love the results I'm getting with Dr. Feelgood, but feel I'm ruining it with a sub-par foundation and powder. Any recs for Benefit foundation and powders that offer medium coverage without caking?

Also, I haven't had much luck with the Boi-ing concealer. I'm applying it like they say, but it doesn't seem to do a thing for the dark circles under my eyes? Any other Benefit (or other lines) concealers work for you?

Thanks much.

    I use their Playstick Foundation and love it. I use it as concealer and foundation. It took me a while to figure out how much to swipe on my face but I have it down now. One swipe on each cheek and a swipe on forehead. I blend it with a foundation brush. To apply it as concealer I run the brush over the stick then apply under eyes and where necessary. I also have to use a loose powder lightly brushed over my face or the foundation will rub off.

    Thanks for the rec, pinksugar, and for the application tips. That's the one I was leaning towards anyway, so I'll check it out :)

    I use their Lemonaid with The Balm's concealer over it.

    i use the BBE Kit with the Boi-Ing and have great results. i found that for under the eyes, the more u use, the better. so i load up the brush that's included and go to work. i use a little pressure and press the brush in so the concealer gets in there. then i take my ring fingers and dab continuously until the concealer is blended. it lasts all day.
