Benefit Boi-ing~Eye Bright duo review and Update on my Contest

Boi-ing / Eye Bright

I picked up this duo at Sephora two weeks ago. I had wanted to try both of these products for a long time. It was one of those things that I didn't really need to have so I always put it off, because the Eye Bright is $20 and Boi-ing is $18. I would have rather spent that money on lipsticks or eye shadows, you know the fun stuff! :-)

When I was at Sephora two weeks ago they had this duo at the checkout for only $8. I thought that was a good deal to try both products out.

I've been using it for the two weeks now, and this is what I think of it.

Packaging ~ The packaging is small, cute, and sleek black, but it does get fingerprint smudges on it.

Eye Bright side ~ This originally comes in a chunky pencil that you sharpen. I have it in pan form in the duo. The consistency of this feels dry. It says online that you use this to brighten up your inner and outer corners of your eyes. I have also used it to highlight the brow bone and highlight the cupids bow. I think this product is ok but I prefer my Mally eye brightener.

Boi-ing ~ The shade is 02 Medium. The consistency of this is really creamy. It has a lot of slip to it which makes it easy to blend BUT I don't think this does a good job at covering the under eye darkness. Online they say it's an industrial-strength concealer. I completely disagree. This didn't really cover much plus what it did cover didn't last at all. It faded within an hour. I was not happy with this concealer at all.

Would I buy this again, No. Would I recommend this, No.

Overall I just thought the Eye Bright was ok, but I think there are better brighteners out there. There are WAY better concealers out there as well in my opinion.

One last thing I wanted to mention, I know I posted in one of my last posts about doing a contest or giveaway for reaching 100 followers. I have been getting prizes here and there for it. I'm thinking of putting it off for a few weeks because we are getting closer to Halloween and I REALLY want to do a Halloween contest! FYI I'm a HUGE HUGE lover of Halloween! I LOVE taking my son trick or treating and I LOVE dressing up and doing crazy makeup! So that's what I am probably going to do. What do you think about that? Let me know. :-)

Thanks for following, reading, and commenting!

I've been wanting to try Boi-ing for a while now, but put it off also. I think I'll probably skip it now. Thanks for the review.
