benefit erase paste: asos (£22.50)

Benefit Erase Paste is one of those products that I've been wanting to try for years. I saw it on ASOS one day and though I may as well FINALLY try it! I've seen various reviews over the years and I know Emma uses it so I thought whats the harm in trying it out, you only live once right?

I do like Erase Paste, However I found that not the kind of product thats slap on and go. I think it needs a bit of work, you need to pat it onto the skin rather than blend it in with a brush. It has a strange texture, more wet and gel like than other concealers I've tried before. The coverage is adequate, I still see some of my dark circles peeking through. I like that is has the peachy tone to it because it does neutralizes my under eye darkness, but overall I dont think its that luminising or brightening and the coverage isn't impeccable. I found it creased on me if I didn't set it properly with a powder, so I think it might be more suited for dryer skin where as mine is oily. The packaging is really cute and Im sure would appeal to most people, It comes with the most useless little scooper thing to get the product out. Its so useless I don't really understand why they included it!

Like a fair few Benefit products, I think this is incredibly over priced. It's OK, and I don't think something worth £23 should just be OK. I'm personally don't think its worth the money when there are conecealers much cheaper that can do the same, if not better job. I wouldnt purchase it again as I much prefer Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer or even the super cheap Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer!

  1. I agree with you completely, I love the C200 concealer! Not tried the BB Creamy Concealer as I don't have a counter near me to see what it's like!

  2. I agree. I like products I can just whack on and run and frankly the little thing that looks like a plastic eyebrow that they put with it is just so pointless! I use the MAC studio finish and I can just get a bit on my fingers and pat it over blemishes and I'm fine. I'm totally devoted to the Lasting Perfection for undereye circles too :) It puts these sorts of prices to shame too!

  3. I do love Benefit products in general but I think they can be overrated/overpriced. I think they rely on people loving them because of their branding and put out stuff that isn't up to scratch.
    I really like the Mac liquid concealer at the moment.

    1. i agree, i think their success is partyly down the the gimmicky way they present their products, i like a few benefit products (porefessional and their blushes) but their other stuff is so so-so, especially for the price!

  4. I really love benefit earse paste but it is super expensive, however does last a long time. One of my favourite cheaper concealers is rimmel hide the blemish. xxx

  6. Overpriced maybe, but I've had mine for TWO YEARS (Eugh)? now and use it pretty much every single day, it just will not run out! I'm looking for something else to try next though, bobbi browns duo maybe? Have you tried it? Do I remember seeing a review here or am I deceiving myself? :|

    The little scoop thing came in handy at first, before I realised I could use the back of my nail to scoop it out - Its really awkward as you start working your way down the tub with long nails - Messy!

    1. i personally just think its a ok product, no matter how long it lasts for £24 I'm a firm believer it should be a good product to begin with! I haven't reviewed the BB concealer, but it is one of my favourites and i always repurchase it!
