Review: Benefit "Fake-up" + Peter Thomas Roth CC cream

Benefit Fake-Up
I mentioned purchasing Benefit's Fake-Up Concealer and moisturizer in one a few posts ago and I had a couple of requests for more info or a follow-up review.  I thought that was a great idea since I really would like to let you ladies that haven't tried it yet know about it and whether or not it really does what it claims.

Well, I am here to tell you that I am in love after using it for the past week!  I have been using it in a shade lighter than I would typically buy for a concealer to highlight under my eyes, forehead, down the middle of my nose and my chin area primarily. I also dab some one the lines next to my mouth to help make them "disappear". What I can tell you is that I have plenty of "lines" in many of these areas and this concealer does not settle in those lines and pronounce them like so many others I have used. It also seems to stay put all day. This one is a winner!!

Verdict: BUY IT AND BUY IT NOW!! :)

Peter Thomas Roth CC Cream
Complete with a broad spectrum SPF 30, this is the most amazing of all of the BB and CC creams I have tried by far!
I know that many use BB creams (beauty or blemish balm) and that they are happy with that amount of coverage. For those of us that have a need for a little more coverage and some corrective properties a CC cream may be your answer.  "CC" stands for "color or complexion correcting" and that is exactly what this formula does. It corrects skin's uneven color including acne scars, hyper-pigmentation and even lessening the look of fine lines and wrinkles (yes, it really does that!). PTR CC cream is a great primer and brightener too. You can learn more about it on the Peter Thomas Roth website (you can get 15%, 20% or 30% off right now and FREE shipping on orders over $50!).

Verdict: I would HIGHLY recommend buying!  At the very least stop into your nearest Sephora and get yourself a sample of the shade that matches your skin tone the best. I think after trying it for yourself you will be hooked too :)

I hope that everyone is having a fantastic Monday!
