You might have seen yesterday's post on my Benefit haul, and I mentioned that I picked up this little gem on my second trip to Benefit in two days! I always have really dark purpley-black circles underneath my eyes, even though I sleep for well over 10 hours most nights! The assistant used the Erase Paste when I had my make-over, but if I'm honest I wasn't really paying attention at that point as I was yammering on about horses and riding and stuff.
I picked this up on the second trip along with the moisturiser, as I really had a hissy fit with my dark circles that morning as nothing would cover them up! I tried this out for the first time on Saturday and was AMAZED! It did a brilliant job of concealing my dark circles, made my eyes look less puffy and it wasn't obvious at all that I was wearing concealer. You only need the tiniest amount, and I apply mine with a Body Shop concealer brush for a flawless finish. It's really easy to blend as it's so soft, but gives excellent coverage with one application. Sorry for the scary no make-up photos but I didn't want to just swatch it on my hand, as that's not going to show you anything! It's a pet peeve of mine when people just swatch things on their hands and then you have no idea if it works or not. As you can see, the eye on the left has had it's dark circle concealed, and on the other eye the dark circle is there in all it's glory!
I was a bit reluctant to get this, as the pot looks tiny and it's not the cheapest concealer, but I'd say it's definitely the best. I got the lightest shade, No. 1 Fair, but I was horrified when I opened the pot to see a medium beige colour glaring up at me! I was so relieved when I used my brush and underneath the top layer was a much more pale-skin friendly shade. I think the fact that it's not really light works to it's advantage, as it actually conceals the blemish/dark circles rather than just highlighting them like really light concealers. It comes in three shades, and they are really versatile as I think they'd work on pretty much any skin tone.
Have you tried Erase Paste? What did you think to it?
