Excellent coverage, but not for the clog-prone
Received some Benefit concealer samples from BeautyMNL sometime back, and went for the Industrial Strength concealer first (lotsa dark PIH from a recent breakout, figured if this variant didn't cover 'em up well then the others probably wouldn't be worth trying). The verdict? This stuff delivered EXCELLENT COVERAGE, better than a lot of other concealers I've tried, though if you get the wrong shade you could end up highlighting spots instead of concealing them due to how pigmented it is. This concealer is a bit on the thick side, so you need to apply lightly with a brush only where you need it and blend gently. Unfortunately, it triggered some fat new zits under the PIH I was covering up, so I'm not too keen on getting the full size version (granted, I wore it for over 8 hours then — wore it again on a different day for approximately half the time and I got some mildly inflamed bumps that went away without growing into monsters thanks to some BHA assistance). I suggest avoiding this if if your skin is sensitive or acne-prone, but if you really need impeccable coverage and have no other immediate options then at the very least try to avoid extended wear.
