Make Up | Benefit Fake Up

I seem to be incredibly and uncurably intrigued by Benefit at the moment. Lately everything I've tried by them I've fallen for - not good news for my bank balance but great news for my make up bag (and said blog). This is the latest love in my life. I swear my entire base consists of Benefit at the moment...

So, this is their hydrating under eye concealer. It's unique in terms of holding the coloured concealer inside a balm of vitamin e and apple seed extract - this balm being the hydrating powerhouse behind the product. I pop a swipe of this under each eye, and then use my Real Techniques Foundation brush to blend outwards - or my ring finger depending on how lazy I'm feeling. I have it in the shade light, which is perfect for under my eyes.

I immediately see a difference under my eyes, they are brighter, and smoother. It's also incredibly long lasting. What I will say is that I don't particually like the balm around the concealer, I find it to be quite greasy under the eyes which is uncomfortable to wear, and where I can oily skin anyway, this isn't great. I find it's not so fab on blemishes as say my Collection Lasting Perfection concealer - but a girl can never have too many concealers, right?! What I would say is if it didn't have the band of balm around it I would like the product a lot more. 

Have you tried Fake Up? What's your go to under eye concealer?
