  • Doesn't Cover Well

Best Uses

Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Fakeup:

This is a great product under eye but I find I can't use it as a concealer on nose above lip or chin because you can see the concealer. It blends better on the softest parts of my face (endereye and eyelid) so that's where I use it. This definitely is not my only concealing product either since it isn't totally full coverage. I combine it was thicker heavier products if I need to conceal dark circles.

Goes on smooth, love the easy application of it and acts as a good base for eyeshadow.

                I have dry skin, so after getting a sample of this, I immediately bought the full size to use in conjunction with my other concealer. Normally, concealer can look thick and cakey when I use enough to cover my dark circles. Now, I apply this concealer, let it sink in and then add half (if not less!) of my other traditional concealer on top and I get great coverage without cakey dry under eyes. Love that this combines moisture with a cover up.

                        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.

                        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!

                        A:

                        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.
