Hydrate and Conceal with Benefit's Fakeup!

retails at €26.50
Why hello there my lovelies!

On Friday evening last I was invited to a Benefit event to show us bloggers their newest product 'Fakeup'. Before I talk about this amazing new product I just want to take a minute to show you the kindness of Benefit who always throw the most amazing parties. Bubbles for everyone[not me- driving :-(] and oodles of yummy food including the cute as a button picnic style fish and chips. 

Now- back to the main post!

What is this 'Fakeup' I'm on about you are thinking? Well it's essentially an under eye concealer that has a ring of vitamin E and Apple Seed extract... huh? Basically this means that not only will you be hiding away your dark circles but you'll be doing your skin wonders. It won't crease and will last all day. 
We were all colour matched by the amazing Mark I of course am the palest of the pale(I don't look it at times but trust me-I am!) 
They come in 3 shades; Light, Medium and Deep. I was very lucky to receive all 3 the other night and boy did I have a field day when I was getting my self dolled up to go out last night. 
I used the light shade under my eyes, down the bridge of my nose and a little on my forehead I then contoured with the deep shade. I love contouring with cream products and this is a gem, easy to blend and a beautiful dewy finish too. You can see the results on me below. I can honestly tell you that throughout the night my makeup stayed on without the need for touch ups(well bar my lippy!) which was great so I could spend more time dancing the night away!
 We also got the Hello Flawless powder in honour of it's Birthday which I will review at a later date when I've used it a little. 
I hope you guys get a chance to check out this new concealer and if you do let me know your thoughts bur for now I hope you are all enjoying your paddies day while I nurse an incredibly large hangover..

All the best,
Alice May xx

  1. It was so nice meeting you at the event. I'm looking forward to using this product a little more it sounds really amazing. Benefit are bringing out such nice products lately. Oh I was meant to ask you on the night, where did you get your dress I love it xxx

    1. I'm very pleasantly surprised by it as I'm not usually a huge concealer user! I love Benefit though, their packaging alone is just to die for.
