Benefit Fake Up – £18.50* in Light, Medium and Dark
Okay. Confession time. I am the girl that carries her entire make-up bag every where. I’ve been trying to cut back for months (do I really need 3 types of mascara and a pressed powder in my hand bag) but the fact is I’m not in the house a lot. Gym, events, work – I’m usually hopping from one place to the other which means top ups (or fresh applications.) It’s becoming impractical for me to carry my entire face around in my hand bag.
Which is where Benefit’s new moisturising concealer “Fake-Up” comes in. It’s about time I start investing in more multi-purpose products and this guy ticks all the boxes I need from a good base. It comes with a concealer core with a hydrating balm surrounding it and packaging wise takes up no more room than a lipstick in my bag. The actual product is lovely – gorgeous creamy texture, even application and super snaps – doesn’t cake under the eyes. So far so good. In the past week I’ve been reaching for Fake Up not only as a concealer but as a foundation stick to top up my make up before events or give myself a less heavy face post gym. With Vitamin E and apple seed – it really is moisturising which is perfect for my skin as it transitions from Winter to Spring.
If you’re having a good skin day and looking for a quick freshen up this works great as a foundation alternative and perfect for under the eye circles, though I will still opt for a bit more full coverage when I have the chance. It’s a handy edition to my handbag (ideal for top ops on the subway) and already find me working it in to my daily routine. Great wee product if looking for a light coverage concealer that doesn’t dry out.
Benefit Fake Up will be available from the website and their counters March 29th.
