Fake Up in Light, Medium and Deep £18.50

A while back I attended the launch of the new Benefit Fake Up Hydrating Concealer*. I was verrrrry excited about a concealer that claims to be hydrating and and cover up under eye darkness. I have personally never come across a concealer before that works like this one.

Cover-up goes incognito!This hydrating crease-control concealer - with Vitamin E & apple seed extract - hides dark circles & diffuses fine lines for a silky smooth, ultra-natural look.Available in three shades, it’s proven to keep skin hydrated for 6 hours!

Unsurprisingly I love the packaging of Fake Up. The packaging is so sleek and pretty with the shiny silver tubes and pink detailing. I think it is really lovely and they are all sitting on my dressing table for me to admire every day! It is also very compact so you can easily add it to your make up bag or handbag.

Fake Up has an outer ring of hydrating balm with vitamin E and apple seed extract to give immediate moisture and help with the prevention of aging. The middle of Fake Up is the concealer, which covers dark circles, illuminates and smooths the skin. Fake Up comes in three shades, Light, Medium and Deep. I am pale skinned and the shade Light is a good match for me. I can also get away with using Deep as a contour shade, which is a big bonus!

Fake Up is so easy to use and gives me an immediate result of brighter looking eyes and covers up any darkness really well. It is light in coverage and sinks in so quickly that you don't even really need to blend it. I expected the balm to move everything about and be slippery but I was wrong! It feels very silky and hydrating on the skin, which is perfect for the skin that is under the eyes. It doesn't crease til about 8 hours after applying. Fake Up works really well under the eyes and on any areas you want to highlight but isn't designed for blemishes as it is so lightweight. 

I can't really compare Fake Up to any other product as I haven't seen anything like it but I am completely addicted to it and it has become a staple in my make up routine. Benefit I love you.

  6. I really like the look of this, I have really really dry skin so a concealer that also moisturizes looks to be exactly like the sort of thing I need in my life!
