Concealing spots, blemishes and other unsightliness has never been my strong point; no matter what my choice of tools or product. That said I think the tables are finally starting to turn for me thanks to the newest Benefit product: Fake Up hydrating and concealing stick.
My usual downfall with concealers is that I need a highly pigmented, long-lasting product however these are exactly the type of products that tend to dry out skin and make my blemishes “flakey”.

So it’s safe to say I don’t get overly excited when I hear news of new Benefit launches and I felt much the same about their new highlighter Sun Beam. That was until I got to sample it at a recent blogger event and boy did I have to eat my words! Read on »
