Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Fakeup:

I think that the Benefit Fakeup Concealer is a pretty outstanding concealer. I like that it is a portable product and doesn't necessarily require a brush for application. I use this product every single day, especially on the days when I'm just heading to work! I love that it has the moisturizer built in which helps prevent drying of the skin. It CAN be a little greasy if you're having an oily skin day and sometimes after my 12 hour shifts I feel a little greasy, but no complaints other than that!

          This is the best cover stick ive used, very smooth, covering, and blends with the color of my skin very well, I use for dark under eyes and the under the eyebrow, works great to cover some blemishes too. Not flakey or dry!

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Fakeup:

          I had been told that the moisturizer and color would blend well, and it does, sorta. When I first put it on it covers any blemishes but be careful when you try to blend, it tends to thin out a bit an I have to reapply. All in all not bad so far.

                    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Fakeup:

                    This seemed like a good product in theory, but it just didn't work in practice. Concealer with a moisturizing ring of white goop surrounding it, what could go wrong?

                    Perhaps because I am middle-aged with fairly dark circles under my eyes and this is geared towards younger skin, this was NOT a good match. Two hours after applying, Fake Up ran like a river into the creases while leaving the dark circles hanging out
                    there for all the world to see.

                            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.
