Ok, so I finally got my tail to Ulta and returned that awful Revlon PhotoReady Foundation and picked up this baby! I have been wanting to try this, and other consealers, from Benefit for months! I have really fair skin, so I knew the lightest shade would be best for me. I couldn't wait to try it out when I got home! So imagine my surprise when I opened up the box and found this in the color MEDIUM! Ahhhhhhh!! It was late and the store was closed. What to do? I sadly put this away in my makeup room until I could return to Ulta to switch it out. =( Later that night, very late, I was in my makeup room just moisturizing (Whooray for moisturizers!) and I was eyeing that cute little box. It was just calling my name. I thought, "Well, Ulta will take it back anyway, might as well try it. Just to see how it covers and if it gets cakey on me." So I pulled out the little spatula and just dipped the very tip into the paste. I didn't get enough out to dab on the back of my hand so I just put some on my ring finger and patted it on under my eyes. Here's my intial thoughts, I will update you guys later on after I've used it more.
This stuff is amazing! I used such a tinsy amount and it covered my dark circles under BOTH eyes! And the color actually was right for my skin!! I couldn't believe it! I've never worn medium anything on my skin before, except for bronzer maybe! So I was so glad I didn't have to take another trip to Ulta to trade it out. I can only imagine how it would have gone had I bought the light shade. Perhaps it would have lite up under my eyes like a Christmas tree and I woudln't have liked it or thought to try the medium shade.
I've really been liking my Maybelline Mousse Consealer, but I had to use so much more of that to get the same effect. And for the record, I didn't think that I had been using that much of the Maybelline before I tried this Erase Paste. This didn't get cakey or settle into any **cough** fine lines that I may or may not have!! Since it was a night, I can't speak on it's staying power yet. I am full of hope for this little gem in a jar! This has got to be the best $26 I've spent in a looooooong time.
Has anyone else tried this? What did you think? Would you recommend I try Boi-ing or Powderflage? I really want to get Benefit's Confessions of a Consealaholic! I'm actually going on a job interview today (wish me luck!) and it just might be my celebration gift to myself if I get it! Brazil may just have to wait! I'll keep you posted!
