I try: Benefit Erase Paste


I was lucky enough to be in the chair this morning getting a manicure at the marvellous Magic Tan in Newmarket, when owner Petrina showed me the latest and greatest addition to the beauty hot spot – some absolute must haves from Benefit.
One that really caught my eye is Erase Paste, which I have heard about for months now but haven’t been lucky enough to try. Well now I am and I most certainly have, and it is a real wonder!
A cult product in the blogosphere, it’s a brightening camouflage for the eyes and the face. A very concentrated, creamy concealer, it brightens and camouflages in one easy step, targeting the likes of dark circles, discoloration and imperfections. It comes in three shades with brightening melon undertones to suit every complexion, and also a fully illustrated, step-by-step lesson and mini-spatula for easy application. It’s a product that will take a few goes to get right as it is quite heavy at first glance, but once mastered is an absolute life changer!
For under eye concealing and brightening for dark circles, start by using the
spatula to scoop out a tiny amount. Place the paste on the back of your hand then using your ring finger, take erase paste and make a dot on the inner and outer corners of the eye. Delicately blend or for complete under eye concealing, connect the dots. For blemishes and spots of discoloration use the side of your finger to draw an “X” on top of the imperfection then pat and blend with your ring finger. It’s a good idea to run your fingertips under warm water to heat them up before blending as well, and start off light – you can always add more.
This baby is definitely a wonder product when it comes to concealing, and is great for clean up after eye shadow application as well… go forth and erase!
