Review: Benefit Erase Paste
The benefit website describes this product as "concentrated, creamy concealer (that) brightens and camouflages in one easy step! Targets dark circles, discoloration and imperfections." This product comes in three colours: fair, medium and deep. Thank goodness the fair works for me, or else I would be SOL. I am surprised they only have this in 3 colours. I was earlier under the impression that yellow under your eyes is best for concealing, I guess from drugstore concealers which tend to be yellow. But no, peach or salmon colours are best because they neutralize the blue/purpley veins around your eyes. And this erase paste is that colour exactly, a peach colour. Also the shade is said to have "brightening melon undertones to suit every complexion."
I don't sleep well and so I feel like the bags make me look older and tired, which is not cute. Others probably don't notice it so much, but I notice it and it bugs me. This product makes me feel more confident, and that's what makeup should do. As you get older, the skin around your eyes thins and can sag. I want to prevent this from accelerating as much as possible. Any tips that you guys may have, in terms of creams or anything, please let me know. I've read that for tired eyes you can apply cold teabags, drink lots of water, and of course, get more sleep. I know you can't stop aging, but you can fight it, with makeup!
I am really happy with this product. Have you tried it? What did you think?
