A Dupe for Benefit's Fake Up, for less!

Concealer is the most important part of my makeup collection. I have cholesterol marks which I often feel embarrassed about, so I made it my 'mission' to find a concealer that would completely cover them up so I wouldn't be as concious of how they stood out on my face. This post is a bit of a mixture between my quest for the best concealer posts and a high end dupe post as I have two concealers which I would consider to be quite similar, but from different ends of the shopping scale - a high end brand in the form of Benefit's Fake Up and a drug store in the form of Makeup Revolutions The One


From Left to Right: Makeup Revolution The One, Benefit's Fake Up, No Concealer

I have had Benefit's Fake Up concealer for quite a while now after trying out numerous products from their concealer collection. Fake Up is available in three shades - light, medium and deep and is priced at £18.50. The dupe of Benefit's Fake Up, otherwise known as Makeup Revolutions 'The One' is a relatively new purchase of mine which I picked up from Superdrug for just £3; it is available in three shades - light, medium and dark. 

I found that when comparing the two products that I actually prefer the coverage from 'The One' as it has managed to cover up my dark circles, and reduce the pigmentation of my cholesterol marks to a much better standard than the Fake Up. The fine lines and creases under my eyes have also been diffused better when using 'The One', which did surprise me as this is one of the main selling points for Fake Up. I picked up the lightest shade in both concealers, which as you can probably tell are very quite different - the one is much lighter than fake up making it ideal for those who have a paler complexion like myself. So taking all that into consideration, I would award Benefits Fake Up a mark of 5/10 and Makeup Revolutions 'The One' a mark of 6/10. 

Overall I actually prefer the dupe product, it gives a greater coverage and it costs a whopping £15.50 less! If you are thinking of picking up Benefit's Fake Up I would definitely suggest trying out Makeup Revolution's 'The One' first as it might just be what you're looking for.

Have you found any other dupes for Benefits Fake Up?
