Product Review - Benefit Fake Up Concealer

Benefit Fake Up Concealer Review Swatch

Finding the perfect concealer is one of my goals in life. Even when I think I've found it...  (Bobbi Brown Corrector/Creamy Concealer I'm looking at you) I still insist on sampling others just incase there's something more perfect!

If you took a peek at my Boots 3 for 2 Haul you would of seen I picked up Benefits new FAKE UP Concealer. This concealer promises to hide dark circles, diffuse fine lines, and give you a silky smooth, hydrated look.

Benefit Fake Up Concealer Review SwatchI've been using this for around a month now and am really loving it - it's smooth to apply, and covers dark circles really well. I thought the hydrating ring might of been a bit gimmicky but it actually works - it makes the stick apply easier then any concealer I've used before and makes it really easy to blend.

I apply it in 3 lines under each eye and then either blend out with my Mac 187 Brush or just using my fingers depending how much of a rush I'm in!

On weekends when I'm heading out I apply my foundation/powder and then add a touch or YSL Touche Eclat/some kind of highlighting concealer under my eye - this isn't necessary but I just find it gives a perfect airbushed finish!

Benefit Fake Up is priced at £18.50 - I feel this is a reasonable price to pay and I will be repurchasing when I run out! This product covers those horribe bags well and doesn't feel make you feel like you pulling at your eyes when applying (less wrinkles for us yeyyy!) I've seen a few bloggers use the Dark shade as contour which I'm quite interested in trying too!

  3. I've been meaning to try this and I think you may have just persuaded me!
    Do you know how many shades it comes in? Cause I know the erase paste only comes in 3 which is a bit annoying!

    1. It too comes in 3 colours (Light, Medium & Dark). I agree could do witha few more shades. If in doubt always go for lighter!

  9. I have been hearing SO many good things about this stuff. I really struggle to find good under eye concealers because my inner corner area is very dry! I've heard nothing but good things about this stuff though!
    Thanks for the review!
