Flawless : Review of Erase Paste by Benefit

May 7, 2013

I was going through my mom’s makeup and came across so many unused goodies that are still in perfect condition. I found several natural looking blushes and lovely bright eyeshadows. I decided to get my hands on Benefit’s Erase Paste, magic in a little pot that I’ve never used before.

This thick and creamy concealer has become a bit of an essential for me. The consistency is very different from what I’ve tried before. It really is a paste. When you touch the concealer, a small amount of the product sticks to your finger. Just like a toothpaste.

The only thing that bugs me is that the product is a bit of a pain when it comes to blending… I find it’s better to pat it on rather than sweeping it. I believe this concealer is only buildable if you keep the layers thin as it can cake up and settle in fine lines.

The product provides enough coverage for daily use. If you’re the type who loves full coverage concealers, you might want to skip this. It also has pink/salmon undertones making it a great corrector and highlighter by leaving a “YSL Touche Eclat” effect which is the main reason why I got attached to it.

I’ve been enjoying this concealer a lot lately by using it only on my dark circles. As it does a great job at highlighting, might want to avoid applying it on blemishes. You’ll end up looking like you have discoloration problems unless it matches perfectly your skin color.

Now, I don’t think that people with dry skin will enjoy this as much as people with normal to oily skin. If you have dry sin, the only way to make this concealer work is by moisturizing A LOT before applying it.

Mine is the the shade 2 medium. You can get Erase Paste at any Benefit counter at Sephora and Faces.

What’s your favorite concealer of the moment?
