Shopping my stash: Benefit Erase Paste

I have re-decorated my dressing room recently and had a good old sort out of my make-up stash (don't you just love a good sort out)!

Due to this, I have started using a few old products and have been wondering, why the hell did I ever stop using them! So, I thought I'd do a little series of post on each one to show you what I've been loving, and you never know, it may remind you about a certain product too! 

The first products is Benefit's Erase Paste.

So what does Benefit say about thisThis concentrated, creamy concealer brightens and camouflages in one easy step! Targets dark circles, discolouration and imperfections. Three shades with brightening melon undertones to suit every complexion. Comes complete with a fully illustrated, step-by-step lesson and mini-spatula for easy application.

Price: £19:50

Shades: 3 - fair, medium & deep (I have medium)

My thoughts: I love this product - I really don't know why I stopped using it. It's a gorgeous creamy consistency and works perfectly under my eyes. I've mentioned before that I suffer terribly with dark circles under my eyes, it looks like I haven't slept for weeks on a daily basis (which to be fair, I feel like that at the moment with 9 puppies), but this product works wonders. 

I've used the usual suspects over the years, Laura Mercier Secret concealer, Bobbi Brown Creamy concealer, and they do work, but just not as good as this. 

It comes with a little spatular, which to be honest, I threw away pretty much as soon as I got it - I just pop my ring finger in a warm it a little on the side of the tub, and then gently blend under the eye, going from the inner to the outer corners. 

I don't often get blemishes, but, if I'm completely honest, I don't think this works particularly well on them when they do appear - I'm happy to keep this all for my under eyes. 

This has been a godsend over the last week trying to look somewhat presentable in work! I don't think this will be going back in the drawer - I think I've found my holy grail concealer for under eyes!

Do you shop your stash often?

    I want to try this so bad, I've seen so many good reviews on it! I just can't justify spending that much money on it though :( Maybe one day!

    I love Benefit Erase Paste, it's definitely one of the best concealers I've tried. I used to use it underneath my eyes as well, but I've been finding it a little heavy recently, so I've switched to using Garnier Caffine Anti-Dark Circles Tinted Eye Roll-On. Also works really well, but a lot lighter coverage :). xXx

    I bought this ages ago as a treat but I know what you mean about the money, but if it helps at all, it last so long-a littler definitely goes a long way :) X
