18 Jul Makeup Review, Before/After Photos, Swatches: Benefit Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer, Fake Up Concealer: Best For Dark Circles 2013
Also, the fact that Birchbox Co-Founder Katia Beauchamp created a video using it didn’t hurt either. Watch it HERE:
The very next day upon receiving it, I applied it as seen in the video; the texture goes on smoothly and there is no tacky feeling left on the skin. It was 96 degrees out and I opted for the Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow SPF 25 Brightening Makeup over it to truly put it to the test.
I also used the new Fake Up Concealer ($24.00) in Light under my eyes, as is has been proven to keep skin hydrated for up to 6-hours. I was SET! Literally. All my cosmetics were in place and I was ready to walk ten blocks in 96 degrees to my destination.
Hours later, my makeup was still in place and only my clothing was drenched! I felt like I was in an Orbit gum commercial, yet my face was sparkling clean!
Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer is said to keep your foundation on longer, visibly improve the look of your skin, increase coverage of foundation and also enhance your foundation’s performance. Yes, I agree with all four statements. Don’t forget it is the first stick primer of its kind! Ohhhh!
The Fake Up Concealer comes in Light, Medium and Dark. It has a hydrating ring around the concealing core color.
It applies smoothly and I do think it adds hydration to the eye area, which in turn, and over time, will minimize my dark circles. It diffuses light, which is what is needed to get rid of under eye darkness.

Overall, I was completely over the moon with the primer, and the concealer seems to do its job relatively well. Tomorrow, I shall only use the primer, as I believe less makeup in this heat would be more enjoyable for me.
What do you beautynistas think of a 15-hour working primer? Think it has what it takes? How about a hydrating under eye concealer?
