Erase Paste - Benefit

This Erase Paste was also part of the PorefessionallyPretty Kit I received, it was another product I’ve always had my eye on but haven’t wanted to part cash for in the past. It’s £19.50 RRP and available here. My little tester pot is adorable it came in shade medium which I probably would have picked from the three shades on offer - Fair, Medium and Deep. 

The Benefit Website Says - This concentrated, creamy concealer brightens and camouflages in one easy step! Targets dark circles, discolouration and imperfections. Three shades with brightening melon undertones to suit every complexion. Comes complete with a fully illustrated, step-by-step lesson and mini-spatula for easy application.

This concealer is very thick and the medium shade is very pinky which is something I’ve never really found in any concealer I’ve previously owned. I thought it would be far to pink for my skin but it actually blends well onto my skin. For me it doesn't sit well on top of my foundation where I mostly use other concealer but as it is so thick it works brilliantly underneath foundation. As my foundation wore off during the day this kept cover on my blemishes somewhat longer which I really liked. 

The peachy colour of it is brilliant if you wanted to brighten up some dull skin tones I'm not really sure its right for my skin and complexion overall as I think it would work brilliantly over foundation to really brighten up eyes. It’s only a little tester pot so I will definitely make my way through it for breakouts as it’s so thick it’s perfect to go under foundation to cover all kinds of blemishes. 

I don't think I'd buy this product again mostly because its not completely right for me and has a hefty price tag in my opinion. I also find the little pot a bit annoying in terms of application for a concealer I like a tube or brush, the sample didn't come with a spatula like the full size one does but I can't see myself loving a spatula either to be honest.
