There are two products that have seamlessly made their way into my daily beauty routine. Individually, they’re great. But together, they are even better. They are Benefit fakeup concealer and NARS Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder. Fakeup is incredibly moisturizing with a vitamin E-packed hydrating outer layer and a light-diffusing inner core. It reminds me of a tube of lip balm!
The dewy finish lends a freshness to the skin that my winter skin really needs. I am not plagued by dark circles, but the under eye situation tends to be a little dull. I almost never set my concealer but I can’t resist sweeping NARS Light Reflecting Powder over the top of fakeup. It feels wrong to call it a powder because it doesn’t act like a powder. It is weightless and feels invisible to the touch. I will sweep my fingers across the pan and I’m all why can’t I feel anything? It’s an exciting innovation! NARS infused it with a light reflecting technology that actually adjusts to new sources of light throughout the day. The formula is never drying — not even under the eyes — thanks to glycerin and vitamin E. It’s perfect with fakeup because it doesn’t change the way it looks just how long it wears. I use a double-ended eyeshadow brush from Mally to apply. I like to pat it on with the flat side and blend it out with the fluffy end.
I’m pretty fixated with the NARS “not a powder” Light Reflecting Powder for all over, but is especially phenomenal under the eyes. I think I must not be the only one, since every time I go to Sephora it’s sold out!
Not that I needed any pushing, but you’ve totally sold me on the NARS “not a powder”. 🙂
It’s so fab, Lauren! So fab that I even want the loose version. It’s the same thing, but I can’t be reasoned with 🙂
Love my NARS light reflecting powder. I bought the pressed version but I kind of wish I had the loose too!
I think we can be totally justified in having both, Kara! I use your tip of rolling and I love it:)
Do you like the Benefit fakeup for blemishes too? Or just under eyes? I have been looking for one product to do both!
Hey Megan! I use fakeup on redness around my nose but I don’t really like it for blemishes since it’s so dewy. I’ve been liking Revlon PhotoReady for blemishes!
Oh my gosh this is a brilliant combination! Both are on my “To Buy” list, so I think I’ll have to try them together almost immediately.

I think you’ll like them, Jessica. The powder (that’s not a powder) is unlike anything I’ve tried. I’m pretty obsessed!
