Benefit Fake-Up Hydrating Concealer

We’'ve always subscribed to the "‘Fake it '‘til you make it’" philosophy. Thankfully, on those all-to-common bleary-eyed mornings, we can turn to this brand new hydrating concealer to pretend as if we’'ve had eight hours of shuteye. The sleek silver tube twists like a lipstick to reveal a two-in-one combo of undereye concealer and featherweight moisturizer. The crease-proof, easy-to-blend formula effortlessly masks dark circles and keeps skin hydrated for up to six hours. The creamy product provides heavy-duty coverage and instantly brightens tired-looking eyes with light-reflecting pigments. Moisturizing vitamin E and apple seed extract give the concealer its silky-smooth texture and soften fine lines. Consider us hooked.

Hated it.

I had bought this because of its said properties of "masking under eye circles" I tried it on and all it did was make my undereye area look shiny and oily and I still had dark circles. It's way too expensive and I have wasted 24 dollars.

Hydrating -- but wrecked my mascara.

This concealer is a miss. It provides great coverage and really brightened my undereye area. It is also super hydrating. BUT that hydrating property meant that it has this awful wet feel. In fact, it was so wet that my mascara kept running. I wore this concealer for three days and despite trying different ways to prime my face and set the concealer, I was still was wiping mascara circles off my face the entire time. I bought this product at a brick and mortar store on a Friday, and it went back on Monday. Fail.

No coverage

This was one of the first benefit products I used and didn't like. I didn't feel like it gave my undereye circles any coverage. It was so featherweight that I felt as though it slipped right off.

Terrible

This product was greasy and slid off my face and this was not due to my complexion. I would not recommend at all.

I received this product in a sampler from Sephora, it wasn't great and does match all skin tones, I have fair skin.

Greasy, thin coverage

This concealer feels like Chapstick on your skin and provides only light coverage. It was too greasy to build the color up to the coverage level I need. The fact it only comes in three shades made it tough to use on my fair-pinkish skin too. I ended up throwing my sample in the trash.

It's ok

I typically use benefit erase paste. I do not find this fake up to have good coverage like I am use to. I didn't feel like it did much covering at all. It seems more like a highlighting moisturizer. I would not buy this again.

A greasy mess
Sampled

I had such high hopes for this concealer/moisturizer. It did not work for me. Applying it went on smoothly and melted into my under eye area nicely and then it disappeared. It offered no coverage for me. Maybe my dark circles are that bad? Don't waste your $, stick with a good eye cream and a true concealer is my opinion.

Not the concealer for me
Sampled

I didn't like this product one bit. It went on VERY oily and made my skin shine too much. I did pick up some of JUST the concealer portion of the product (with a toothpick) and that I did like...but there is WAY too much moisturizer on this product.

the formula goes on smoothly but settles into fine lines. The color matching is impossible to hide circles & not look waxy
