Benefit's Erase Paste in 'Fair'.
One thing I have always struggled with is dark under eye circles. It doesn't matter how much sleep I do or don't get, those tricky things never disappear. I've used countless concealers and although many of them do help, none of them have been amazing or made me less self conscious about them.
This is where Erase Paste comes in. I was lucky enough to get my make up done at Benefit for graduation, and Erase Paste is the concealer they used for me. Straight away I loved it, it covered up my dark circles and blemishes, and I knew I had it to have it.
As a guide, here is my eye without any make up on at all:
I don't think this picture shows the true extent of dark circles, but you can definitely see that I've got them!
And below is a photo of me with the concealer on. I'm also wearing a thin layer of Body Shop BB Cream.
As you can see, my circles are a lot less visible now, and my skin tone is far more even.
It's a very thick concealer, you only need a smidgen to cover your under eye area.
This small amount covered both sections of my under-eye and my nose, and is the size of probably a pea. I've used it every day for two weeks and it's barely caused a dent in it.
It's a very creamy, thick concealer, that doesn't crease or melt off my face too much during the day - I have extremely oily skin so that's a God send!
At £20.50 it's not the cheapest concealer, but if you can afford it, it's certainly worth it. If you're a student, you can get 10% off at ASOS, which I recommend! I've not managed to find a dupe for it, if you know of one, let me know!
Have you used Erase Paste? If so, what do you think?
