Beauty By Benz approved: Benefit Fake Up concealer
Anybody who's ever had their concealer crease up on them (aka, anyone who's ever even tried to wear concealer) can appreciate Benefit's new Fake Up Concealer ($24). This is a moisturizing concealer with vitamin E and apple seed extract to nourish the skin at the same time that it's hiding dark circles. The real magic though is that it's crease-proof. It promises to keep the skin hydrated and crease-free for 6 hours, but I can testify that I've worn this for a full 8+ hour work day and had NO creasing. Kind of revolutionary if you ask me.
The secret, whatever it is, is in the clear ring that surrounds the concealer, which keeps the skin from feeling dry, and keeps the concealer from settling into all your fine lines and wrinkles. An added bonus for me was that I was able to wear this concealer over a breakout and it covered the blemish without giving me that dry, crusty feeling that you often get when trying to cover a pimple. I usually don't even bother with concealer because I can't deal with the creasing, and I don't like a product that feels cakey or heavy under my eyes, but THIS has been going on just about every day since I got it. It's that good.
Available in three shades (light, medium, and dark), this paraben-free formula is now on permanent rotation in my makeup routine.
