BENEFIT POWDERFLAGE

"For camouflaging dark circles & fines lines, powderflage is fast, easy, light & breezy! Virtually weightless, this silky, light pink powder magically camouflages & diffuses. The "flager" brush conceals in 2 quick strokes."

To celebrate my new job, I recently picked this up at Ulta. I was told it would work great with Benefit's Erase Paste, which I adore! It comes in a cute little tin, shown above, and inside is the container with the powder, which it super cute as well! There's also a little fan brush to apply it with.


I opened it in the car, no...I couldn't wait until I got home. And applied some under my eyes (which I had already put Erase Paste on that morning) to see what would happen. I was pleased to see it further concealed my dark circles! Wooray! Who could ask for more right? The brush is small, but works great for under eyes. I love that it's pink!

 So I happily put it back together and plopped it into my purse. When I got home and looked at it again, I noticed that all the powder had come through the sifter!! Well, not all, but a lot.

So this is great to have at home, but obviously not to travel with. Now I have to be super careful when I open it to not spill out half the product. Erg! But on another awesome note, when I touched my face after applying the Powderflage, I was shocked to feel how silky it was!! I had no idea it did that! Amazing!!!

So all and all, I do with the packaging, as cute as it is, was better suited to traveling but...
Will I buy this again? Yes!! So if you haven't tried this yet and you were on the fence, please go try it and let me know what you think!

Don't forget to shop my blog sale!

I don't find that Powderflage does much for concealing my dark circles, but it is great for setting under-eye concealer without making it cakey. Plus the packaging is super cute! x

I haven't tried this without Erase Paste, but I'm pretty sure it wouldn't cover my dark circles. But it does add a little bit more to conceal my circles with the Erase Paste. I'm still in love!
