I love Benefit Cosmetics… with all their fake-its and fix-its! They always come out with such great quick fixes. I recently tried Benefit’s Fake-Up concealer to see whether it lived up to the hype of “ultra-hydrating crease-control concealer.” See my thoughts and photos below:
The Good It is definitely hydrating… probably one of the most hydrating concealers on the market. It goes on so smoothly and doesn’t need much blending action to do it’s job.
The Bad It is NOT a full coverage concealer and there are only three shades (Actually, if you go to a Benefit Counter to purchase this, the person checking you out will probably tell you that it’s not full coverage and will make sure to ‘add on’ a Boing concealer)
Final Thoughts This concealer really lives up to it’s name. My entire eye area, which gets dry and flakey very easily, stayed hydrated for hours… and it didn’t crease! If you have very dark circles or shadows like mine around your eye area, you will definitely have to layer the Fake-Up over a full coverage concealer, like Mac Pro Longwear or Amazing Cosmetics. If you want just a little coverage around your eyes I would highly recommend this product, but if you have those dark circles like, i’d say it’s a great addition to your current under eye cover-up (this won’t be a one stop shop).
