I’ve been using Benefit Erase Paste for over a year now, and can definitely say that it is one of the best concealers I have ever used. So I thought I would do a bit of a review as a good concealer is a makeup bag staple, and can sometimes be hard to find!
Benefit Erase Paste is a full coverage concealer that can be used to cover dark circles and imperfections. Unfortunately I no longer have the packaging to show you, but I’m sure that most of you will be familiar with it already. On the Benefit website, the Erase Paste is described as follows:
“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.”
I use Benefit Erase Paste in the colour Fair, which is the lightest of the three available (Fair, Medium and Deep). However, although the Erase Paste does come with a mini-spatula, I’ve never actually used it to apply my concealer, as I feel it picks up too much product. Instead, I prefer to apply my concealer with my fingers, as this allows me to blend the product into my skin for a better finish.
I purchased my Benefit Erase Paste from my nearest Benefit counter in Debenhams, for £19.50. However, I did agonise over whether to buy this product, as it is very expensive for a concealer. But after trying Benefit Erase Paste for myself, I can definitely say that it is worth the price as it seems to last forever! As I said, I have been using my Erase Paste for over a year now, and I have still only used a tiny amount (as you can see from the photograph above).
