Benefit Fake Up

 Today I'll be reviewing Benefit's Fake Up, a concealer with moisturising qualities, formulated especially for use in the under eye area. It's supposed to combat under eye bags and dark circles, while moisturising at the same time.

I haven't seen many people talk about this but I decided to give it a go, being a huge fan of Benefit!

It has really nice packaging, once again typical of Benefit. It's a really sleek, silver tube which is surprisingly sturdy.
"This hydrating crease-control concealer- with Vitamin E & apple seed extract- hides dark circles and diffuses fine lines for a silky smooth, ultra- natural look"
 As for the actual product, it has an incredibly unique design. There is a ring in the middle of the concealer and then on the outside of it there is a ring which moisturises under your eyes without creasing- and they mean that!

Overall, I think that this is a unique product, which really lived up to my expectations. I usually apply it after foundation and set it in place with powder, otherwise I find it to look a little too shiny. 

The coverage isn't completely there but I wouldn't expect it to moisturise as well as completely cover dark circles- it's good enough for me! I love how hydrating and crease-free the formula is, something I was incredibly wary of!

I do like Fake Up, but at £18.50, it's quite expensive for a product which isn't full coverage. I would still recommend it if it's within your budget or if you manage to find it during sale time!


  1. I've seen this in stores but have always passed it up because I was skeptical that it would work. Thanks for the review.

    1. I can see why it seems like a bit of a gimmick, to be honest if your dark circles are really bad this may not be the right product for you x
