Benefit Fake Up Concealer

Benefit's Fake Up Concealer in light

Finally, my first post in a long time but I'm glad to be back and blogging again. I managed to get my hands on Benefit's Fake Up Concealer a few weeks ago and have been amazed by it, so much so that this was  going to be my first review back.

Benefit are known for their gorgeous and quirky packaging and this does not disappoint, this sleek silver tube is embossed with a pretty pink and black logo on the front. My only gripe is that if you do get a little concealer on the packaging it is visible and gets dirty quite quickly. Other than that yet another gorgeous looking product from Benefit.

What makes this concealer different to others is the fact that this is a two-in-one product, with moisturising properties. The clear outer layer packs a highly moisturising balm which helps to smooth the skin whilst the apple seed extract helps to brighten the skin. The concealer part is held in the middle of the tube, which is simply used to help hide blemishes and redness in the skin.

When I first swatched this in Debenhams I was worried that this would be a little too oily for my skin, however once I started to blend I noticed that this does disappear. Considering it does appear oily this will stay on your skin for a good 8-10 hours which is fabulous for a concealer. I have heard a lot of people say that the coverage is too light for what they'd want in a concealer but I find this does provide a good coverage, it helps hide any blemishes and especially darker areas under the eyes. So for me personally, whilst it's on the sheerer side it still provides ample amount of coverage for what I am after. 

This blends really easily into the skin and honestly takes no time at all which is a big bonus as I can sometimes spend ages trying to blend concealers if they don't sink in just right. I love how this feels when I apply, purely because of it's gel-like consistency, it applies softly and once on feels very light. 

The range consists of only three colours which I thought was a little strange, I was expecting more of a colour range but Benefit do insist that these three colours will be a match for everyone. I went for the lightest (as always) and find the colour is an exact match for my skin tone, it's not too yellow nor too orange, just perfect!

Benefit's Fake Up Concealer retails for £18.50 from any Benefit counter.

I'm back!

Hi loves,

So recently you may have noticed I have been inactive from the blog and blogging world but my last major assignments have now been handed in which means my three years of university is now coming to an end.

However it does mean more time for blogging, which I cannot wait to get back into the blogging spirit!
