Sneak Peek: Benefit Perk Up Artist concealer kit

By Aisling | June 21 2012 | 11 Comments

He’s smooth, sleazy and looks like he wants to perk you up in a way that’s totally unconnected with makeup and totally connected with sweet sweet lurve.

It’s that handlebar moustache and those shades – just cue the Barry White.  But we should try to forget that he picked up his makeup skills on the sets of 70s porn films – because his concealer kit is pretty great.

With three concealers, a  dinky application brush, a decent mirror and a much more robust hard plastic case than we’re used to with Benefit kits this is a good ‘un.  I’m particularly pleased about the case – I loved my Realness of Concealness Kit and Confessions of a Concealaholic more than life itself but the cardboard casing slowly disintegrated in my handbag.  No such fear with this one.

Three shades of concealer reside within – a yellow corrective colour (think Lemon Aid), a beigy Cover up (think Boiing) and a pink Brightener “to lift tired eyes in a heartbeat”

Available August €34.50

    It seems that Benefit just keep repackaging the same products over and over….don’t get me wrong I Love Benefit products but the same thing over again is getting a bit tired now…,

    Babodpower – totally agree and I’m a huge Benefit fan. I also hate that all the kits have concealers in shade 02. It’s too damn dark. I had Confessions of a Concealaholic and it had Boi-ing in 01 and 02 so I didn’t use the 02 at all, but it also had an erase paste in 02 – so that was a large part of that kit that was no use to me. The Realness of Concealness, Finding Mr. Bright and Big Beautiful Eyes kits all have concealers in 02 as well and they’re a big part of those kits which makes the kits not worth my money.

    paying for the marketing and packaging here methinks.

  • Orna says:

    Will definitely be picking this up. Loved realness of concealness but was too bulky and awkward. Yay for this!!

  • Babodpower says:

    Yeah I’m totally sucked in by all those kits and palettes,but I’m like you Cait boing 2 will never be used as well as other bits and pieces from each one… I love Erase Paste,it’s my fav undereye concealer but I had to give my sister the one from Confessions of a Concealaholic.

  • LynnieDoll says:

    I’m still using my Confessions of a Concealaholic and the realness of concealness and I’ve a touche eclat on the go and my new Dermablend – so I think I’ll give this one a miss for now. But I’ll file it away in the brain archive for when I need a new one.
    Perk up artist – that made me laugh…..

    Looks the Catrice correctors set, ( a friend put me onto and its amazing!), But with less in it, and a more expensive price-tag! I love Benefit, use their Foundation, primer, powder and bronzer. But when it comes to some of their other products, you can get better value products from others and who can turn their nose up at saving a bit of money?!? ;)

  • OtherMary says:

    He is not going to be perking up any ladies with his ‘pocket-size’ boast, haha.

  • Nicola says:

    KA – I saw that Catrice kit the other day, looked like a bargain to me.

    I think when I bought my Big Beautiful Eyes kit (at the Benefit stand at Gatwick airport) they said that they had it in shade 1 or 2. Although maybe it was a lie, because she insisted that I was a shade 2 and I’m really not. Though I had been in Africa, so maybe I was a bit tanned.

    €34.50 just seems like way too much for a few concealers.

    Nicola, defo worth a try, it blends really well!
