Benefit’s Erase Paste Concealer ✯✯✯✯

17 Nov

This concealer brought up a bit of controversy.

Don’t get me wrong! It’s great for under eye but when it comes to blemishes it leaves a greasy mess.

This concealer has a salmon undertone to cancel out the blue in your under eye circles. It’s VERY thick so you need a really good setting powder. If you don’t the concealer can crease like nothing else!

That’s where I’l tied! As a student, I stay up very late with school work, leaving me with dark dark circles. It took a bit of trial and error to get this concealer to work for me! But now that I’ve got it, it’s a LIFE SAVER!

Step 1: PRIME – I put a bit of eyeshadow primer under my eyes.

Step 2: Apply a THIN layer or Benefit’s Erase Paste. Think about how much you need, then cut that in half.

Step 3: SET THAT SUCKER! Apply a nice amount of powder to set the concealer. Either your foundation power or just a setting powder.

This concealer is a hefty $26 for .15 oz. I personally opted in for the $10 mini that came with a kit. I recommend that because you truly just need the tinniest amount. I’ve had the mini for over 2 months now and barely made a dent.

*For blemishes I recommend Benefit’s “Boing”!*

“Thinking of Blue” 11/04/12

I’m wearing “460 Thinking of Blue”by Sally Hansen. It’s a gorgeous deep navy blue. I’m not much for wearing intricate designs on my nails, I try to wear a versatile color. I find this matches with most of my outfits because it’s just such a basic color.

This will last me about 4-5 days with a topcoat before it starts looking awful.
