Benefit Fake Up Moisturizing Concealer

Benefit Fake Up Moisturizing Concealer sounds interesting, right? Especially for people like me – dry skin types.

We just need moisturizing. No, I’m not exaggerating. Only those with my skin type sit and nod as they read these lines. They know how painful it is to see when concealer dries out the already dry skin under the eyes. And when a contender like the Benefit Fake Up Moisturizing Concealer is announced, there is hope. Small, but it is.

Benefit Fake Up Moisturizing Concealer Description

The manufacturer vouches for the care around the eyes and the simultaneous masking of bruises. He promises:

  • hide dark circles under the eyes
  • smooth out fine wrinkles
  • minimum thin coating
  • useful composition

“Not a concealer, but a dream!” – you tell.

But do not rush to conclusions, because only a photo can confirm the manufacturer’s words.

Description of the shade and swatch

Fake Up packaging is original – in lipstick format – and very easy to use.

Package

I will note that now I have far from pronounced bruises, but they are still there. Therefore, I thought that this product would be enough to completely cover them.

I hardly saw the difference between “before” and “after”. And you? It turns out that if the bruises are more obvious, then Benefit Fake Up Moisturizing Concealer will not cope with them.

But it is worth noting that Benefit Fake Up Concealer has everything in order with its moisturizing and caring properties:

  • does not dry the skin around the eyes
  • does not emphasize wrinkles
  • wet finish effect

The latter feature can be a problem for those who do not like the wet effect on the face in principle.

Another feature is the lack of stamina. I understand that this is some kind of payback for the caring properties, but 3-4 hours is too little to become the best concealer in its category.

Output

Benefit Fake Up Moisturizing Concealer is the story of eye care and minimal disguise that I could never see.

Alas, if we are talking about real camouflage, then you have to sacrifice dry skin, since dense concealers with a high pigment content a priori cannot be moisturizing. To one degree or another, they will dry out the skin around the eyes and nothing can be done about it.
