          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Fakeup:

          I have deep-set eyes and undereye circles, so concealer is my go-to product. I use Benefit's Erase Paste in the morning, and I carry this with me in my purse for touch-ups during the day. I really like it because it it quick, easy-to-apply, and doesn't settle in creases. One thing I have noticed is that the color isn't what I would expect. My skin tone is fair with yellow undertones. Usually I would choose "light," but I've found that I have to go with "medium" for this product. This doesn't cover as well more heavy-duty concealers, but it is a nice, easy moisturizing option.

            I was so excited to use this but was disappointed. This product is good don't get me wrong. It went on smooth and looked great but as the day went on the rest of my makeup slid down onto it. I looked like a raccoon by days end. Maybe too moisturizing for me, would recommend to someone with very dry skin. I was bummed because I have loved all the Benefit products I have tried but had to go back to MAC for my concealer.

            I love this stuff!!! and love the consultant at Ulta who showed it to me! Great for every blemish and goes on without really even seeing that it's there. It blends great and love that it's moisturized. I mostly use it for under eye black circles and along the sides of my nose, but can use anywhere I have blemishes when I really get dressed up and go all out on my makeup. I will use this stuff forever!

              Absolutely love this product. I have horrible dark circles under my eyes and this is the only prodcut I have found so far that actually covers them and doesn't wear off all day! It's also great for contouring.

              Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Fakeup:

              I have this in Medium, but it's actually lighter than the typical medium so when I use it in my under eye area, it has a brightening effect. I find that it blends out very smoothly and lasts a whole day if you set it with a powder. Sometimes, it does settle into the creases in my inner eye corner though. I also use this to spot conceal around my face and it hasn't caused any sort of break out. I love blending it in with the elf flawless concealer brush, or some sort of round concealer brush. It can get streaky using a flat concealer brush. I've liked this product enough to have repurchased it!

                I use this product for under eye area. It covers well and does not settle into the creases. It does wear off sooner than I would like. I'd say it lasts for about 5 hours.

                  Hi. I have acne and my acne tends to be dry and most concealers cling to the dryness. Would this be good for making my spots less dry? If it is not full coverage do u recommend using before a full coverage concealer? For example...applying fakeup and then apppling boing?

                    Fakeup features a hydrating ring of Vitamin E & apple seed extract to help relieve dryness. It provides natural looking coverage and can be layered underneath additional concealer such as Boi-ing for added coverage. To ensure smooth application, we recommend exfoliating your skin and using a primer prior to concealer such as The POREfessional.

                  I have oily skin and I recently bought this product. The t-zone of my face of my face is quite oily while the sides of my face that are not. I mainly bought this to cover up some of my spots, but if I were to put it on my under eyes would it make it look oily?

                    Though its formula is hydrating, Fakeup features a natural finish and won't leave skin feeling or looking greasy or oily. It is ideal to cover dark under eye circles, and it works great to cover up any other skin imperfections, too!

                    This product's intended use is as a concealer to hide dark circles and diffuse fine lines for a silky smooth, ultra-natural look. This product can be applied before or after foundation application. Stroke Fakeup underneath each eye. Using your ring finger, pat gently outward to blend. You can also use it to touch up throughout the day. This “double duty” hydrating & concealing formula won’t cake, crease or settle.
