The Curious Case of Crease Control Concealer | Benefit Fake Up Launch
Breaking news! Somebody stole the great hydrating concealer coverup! Benefit Cosmetics invited beauty bloggers to come in their best ala C.S.I outfits and help them investigate who stole the new Fake Up Concealer.
Upon arriving, I met two suspicious ladies. One is a french maid who’s obsessed with under eye circles, likes to cover her blemishes especially when she’s done cleaning the house.
Benefit Fake Up - Review
Concealer, concealer, concealer… There are so many out there but what one do you choose? The drug store brands, or the high end brands?
Well.. I’ve tried high and low priced concealers and some are great like the bourjois healthly mix, I really did like it but since I have dry skin it made my skin look cakey as the day progressed and I needed something more hydrating.
I came across the new Fake Up concealer by Benefit and I have to say this is really amazing! Its so rich and creamy, and goes on so smooth while providing excellent coverage to hide under eye circles, dark spots and discolouration.
It’s 29.99 but worth it!
The packaging is interesting, it reminds me of lip gloss packaging.
BEAUTY REVIEW: BENEFIT'S NEW FAKE UP CONCEALER
On Monday I descended on Hugh’s Champagne Bar in Glasgow’s House of Fraser department show to discover the secrets of Benefit’s new concealer Fake Up from their Head Make-Up Artist Lisa Potter-Dixon.
The bar had been turned into a Benefit paradise with Fake Up walls and cushions, and a Benefit make-up counter to have a play with their other products.
The Fake Up concealer comes in 3 shades- Light, Medium and Deep. The sticks look amazing withtheir moisturising outer rim, and coloured concealer centres; and I love the idea behind Fake Up not just concealing but moisturising too with it’s Vitamin E and Apple Seed Extracts.
We were given all three shades home so that we could experiment with them. They can be used not just as a concealer; but for contouring also (by using a shade darker than you would use as a concealer).
I am most definitely the Light shade for concealer, and i‘ve been trying mine out for the last few days. I really wanted it to be the perfect concealer for me; but unfortunately it isn’t. It just doesn’t give me enough coverage. I need my dark circles hidden, and it just won’t do that for me. I am impressed however with its contouring abilities. If I contour with a mix of Medium and Deep (as Deep is slightly too orange on its own for my Snow White skin tone) it has great effects that last a long time. For me, Fake Up is my go-to contour product rather than concealer.
Available at end of March at Benefit counters nationwide, and online, for £18.50.
