Like I've said in previous posts, I've never really been a huge fan of Benefit products simply because I find the packaging to be aimed at teens. I do however, love their Boi-ing concealer and High-brow highlighter pencil and I've now branched out to their Fake Up concealer. The reason being, it's meant to be perfect for the under eye area to brighten and conceal so I decided to make a purchase to see if it lived up to its claims.
I ordered the concealer off the Debenhams website as I still had some money left over on a gift card I got at Christmas so the concealer didn't cost me that much which is a bonus. The delivery was extremely fast which is what I love about Debenhams, it arrived within two days.
So onto the concealer itself... well I opted for shade 'Light' as recommended by another makeup artist, she said she uses it under clients eyes to lighten and brighten especially for the more mature ladies. Once it arrived I tried it on myself a couple of times before adding it to my kit... I was really pleased with how well it brightened my under eye area without looking too much (some lighter concealers can make you look too drag queeny but not this!).
It includes a moisturising ring of vitamin E and apple seed extract around the outside of the concealer which helps hydrate the eye area. Gliding onto the under-eye area so easily, it looks even better once set with a powder such as Laura Mercier' Secret Brightening Powder. It lasts all day once set with this specific powder and is perfect for older ladies who have dryer eyes with wrinkles. I find that it feels silky smooth and is extremely light-weight which is perfect for those who like to wear makeup but still feel like they have nothing on the skin.
There's nothing I don't like and I highly recommend this amazing concealer from Benefit, I know for a fine fact I'll be picking up the medium shade next time! Thanks again Benebabes....
