The Curious Case of Benefit Fake Up

Last Friday, Benefit had invited me to an urgent meet-up with a handful of beauty bloggers and vloggers to solve the case of the missing Benefit Fake Up Concealer. I was horrified at the thought that somebody could do such a thing to the kind peeps at Benefit! As a devout user of the brand and as a friend, I went to investigate.

When I got to the venue, they immediately told me: RAISE YOUR HANDS! YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT! ANYTHING YOU SAY CAN AND WILL BE USED AGAINST YOU IN THE COURT OF LAW! Flabbergasted, I did what I was told to do and they inspected my bags and body. In the end, they didn't find anything. Whew! I was safe! I thought I was going to beauty jail! (Of course, this is just an exaggeration. They just asked me to pose with the SUSPECTS sign LOL!)

And so we proceeded to the facts about Benefit Fake-Up in order to determine our main suspects:

Fake Up is a gorgeous skin care- based concealer. Enriched with Vitamin E and Apple Seed Extract to keep under eyes hydrated for up to 6 hours, and its lightweight, wrinkle- diffusing coverage provides a comfortable, natural finish. It comes in three shades (light, medium, dark). Sounds like a gem product that's why it was stolen!

Here's Professor-in-Pink Alyanna and Detective RJ who both lead the investigation.

In here, Professor-in-Pink Alyanna-in-pink was telling us more deets about the product. Since Fake-Up was primarily designed to treat dryness and conceal dark circles and wrinkles, we narrowed it down to two suspects:

Photo Credits: Benefit Cosmetics Philippines

Frenchie: The vain French Maid who'd obsess about her dark circles and wrinkles in front of the mirror when here masters are away.

Imma Dry: The donya who deals with undereye dryness on a daily basis. (Forgot to take her photo! :D)

Professor-In-Pink Alyanna showing us some nifty tricks with Fake-Up and the rest of Benefit's under eye products. We figured that by using Fake-Up, we'd trigger some unusual reactions from the main suspects and get tell-tale signs that would end this mission once and for all.

So who stole Fake-Up? The crook was Detective RJ! He started quivering when he saw Fake-Up in action and looked dead obsessed as Professor Alyanna used the product-he finally admitted to doing the crime! OMG-didn't see it coming! Sorry Imma Dry and Frenchie, you were innocent gals after all! But we had to let Detective RJ go 'cuz we understoond why he stole Fake-Up-HE NEEDED IT! :D

We deem the Curious Case of Fake-Up, solved! What a fun way to end the week! :)
