*Fake up is a hydrating, crease-control concealer and the hydrating effect promises to last for at least 6 hours. It comes in three shades which are adaptive to your skin tone - light, medium and deep. For me the lightest shade is perfect for under my eyes as I like to use a paler colour to make my eye area look brighter while medium is great for any other areas to conceal redness or imperfections. Deep would be an ideal contour shade for me, but I'm a bit nervous about giving it a go. I've looked up that infamous Kim Kardashian contour image but I really don't think I have the skills to recreate it!
On my skin fake up applies really smoothly and it's not at all drying or cakey because it has so much moisturisation built in. The twist up stick has the concealer in the centre with a moisturising ring around the outside containing vitamin E and apple seed extract.
I put the crease-free claims to the test by using fake up under my eyes. Other than the fairly prominent crease which is always there under my eyes, I didn't get any other creases whilst wearing fake up underneath my foundation. I'm tempted to try it as a base on my eyelids as that's where my makeup always tends to crease regardless.
I've been applying fake up straight from the tube onto my skin, either dotting it on to imprefections, or drawing a v shape under my eyes before blending in with a brush and applying my foundation on top which gives a really smooth finish. I've been combining fake up with Benefit's hello flawless powder - which is really living up to its name - and I'll be posting about that soon.
I reallt love the hydrating effect of this concealer - it's a brilliant idea that really works. Some concealers I've owned can be so drying on my skin that they instantly look cakey or powder or even streaky on the skin whereas fake up seemlessly blends in and leaves a smooth creamy finish. Just a little bit in love with this right now.
