REVIEW: Benefit FakeUp Concealer Event & Review!

Thursday, March 07, 2013

WARNING: Picture Heavy Post
Benefit FakeUp Concealer - £18.50*

I was invited to my first ever event on Tuesday by the lovely girls from Benefit! I was super excited as I'd never been to an event before and plus the event in question was held in Fenwicks, Newcastle... a mere 10 minutes away from where I live, which was perfect! I was quite nervous but everyone else I had spoken to on twitter beforehand was too so that eased my nerves a little. We got champers, canapes and a lovely demonstration from the Benefit gals, and probably one of the most exciting parts of the night was getting to take home all three shades of the new FakeUp concealer!! I had a really lovely time and can't wait for future Northern events but anyway onto the review:

Benefit FakeUp Concealer is a brand new hydrating and crease-control concealer!
It contains a hydrating ring with vitamin E and apple seed extract and an inner concealing core.

First impressions I was immediately slightly dubious, what with my oily skin, I thought adding moisture to my face for the day seemed like a bad idea. However I was very pleasantly surprised!! This concealer has an incredibly silky texture, not at all oily like I was expecting, and glides on so well. I was colour matched to the shade Light (obviously, I didn't expect anything else aha) but it also comes in two other shades, Medium & Deep; although that isn't a huge variety of shades they blend into the skin really well! The coverage, lack of creasing and staying power is amazing, definitely rivals my Collection Lasting Perfection concealer in terms of under eye coverage, only it does so much more. I thought the hydrating ring would make this concealer just slip off my face but it didn't, it stayed on all day, I did set it with a little powder but that was purely to set my face a little. Normally when I get to the end of the day my under eyes are feeling a little dry and sometimes a bit sore, so my under eyes are where I slather on a load of eye cream every night. But with this I am sitting here at half 11 on wednesday night and my under eyes are still silky soft and hydrated, which is a miracle in my eyes. Probably wouldn't recommend this for blemisehs and spot cover ups but for under-eyes this is a dream come true.

As you can probably tell I can't stop raving about this concealer enough and I think it is going to be a huge hit when it launches on the 30th March. I predict long queues for this little baby!!

Thanks once again to Benefit for the invite!
