As I mentioned in my previous post, Last Friday I attended the Benefit "Fake up" event. I'm always on the look out for new concealers, so I was delighted to find out more. The newest addition to Benefit it aims to hydrate, brighten and conceal dark circles and blemishes. The creamy concealer is surrounded by a hydrating ring made up of both Vitamin E and apple seed extract, which not only hydrates your skin but keeps your concealer in tip top condition all day, and helps avoid the dreaded cakey look, which we've all been guilty of!
As with all Benefit products the packaging is so cute, with clever names. I know you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover and all that jazz, but how cute are these tubes? It comes in three shades. Light, Medium and Deep. I was surprisingly matched to a medium concealer and with all this working mad hours lately I was eager to try it out as I've read so many rave reviews from other beauty bloggers! I was especially looking forward to trying it out on some of my random spots I get every *cough,cough* time of the month ;)
What I love most about this concealer is the hydrating ring. It's a pleasure to apply to the skin, and it's good knowing you're actually helping your skin, while you beautify yourself! I applied it in a V shape under my eye and was amazed with how it vanished. It's definitely going to be my go to concealer for tired eyes! It's extremely moisturizing on the skin and glides on effortlessly. As we were luckily given not one, but three samples we were told that we could potentially use the others for contouring. I've yet to try the deep out yet, but I'm heading out tonight, so I'm sure the proof of the pudding will be in the pictures!
Fake Up*€26.50 available Nationwide 30th of March.
Fake Up is specially formulated to avoid creasing, so you avoid the cakey look,so it's a win win, all round! As you can see below you can actually see how moisturizing the ring is! you can see a light sheen accompanies the concealer. It's a light coverage but buildable and once you've applied your foundation and powder it gives a great coverage with, yep, you guessed it no cakeyness!
Over all a fantastic product, and I will definitely repurchase :)
