Concealer - Fake Up by Benefit Review and swatches 01Fake Up* by Benefit RRP £18.50 available HERE.

We all love a good make-up gadget and Benefit have recently released their newest concealer to their range. Meet Fake Up. Now this concealer isn’t your normal concealer. This is a hydrating crease-control concealer that not only hides dark circles but diffuses fine lines for silky smooth coverage!

The team at Benefit kindly sent me this a couple of weeks ago and I’ve been using this every day to test it out for you guys. As you can see the actual concealer runs through the core of this stick and there is a hydrating ring running all the way around it. There are 3 shades in total (Light 01, Medium 02 and Deep 03) which isn’t a lot but no doubt with Benefit expand the range… At least I hope they do! The shade I have is Medium 02.

Recently, my under eyes have been very dry and this concealer has been a perfect match for me. It’s super hydrating and conceals my under-eye circles really well. Although I think this shade is a tad bit dark, I tend to mix it with my YSL Touche Eclat to brighten the area up. Below are some before, during and after pictures which I hope will help see this baby in action.

The packaging is great and the product does what it says on the tin. I would say it’s equivalent to MAC’s Moisture Cover concealer (the one which looks like it’s in a lipgloss tube) but this creases less which is a bonus! I will definitely be buying this once my tube is finished, but in shade Light 01.

Have you tried this concealer yet? Will you be picking this up? I’d love to know what your favourite concealers are :)

    I’m so reluctant to spend loads on concealer when I love my Collection 2000 so far, but it does look great on you!
    Maybe I should branch out a little when I get some more money :)
