This past weekend I lost my Benefit Erase Paste.
Somewhere between getting ready for brunch on Sunday and doing an evening touch
up, that little pot of ivory colored magic went missing. I’ve searched my room
high and low and turned up absolutely nothing.
Considering I spent a small
fortune on car stuff this week, splurging $25 on a replacement concealer just
didn’t seem like a very frugal decision. So I stopped by CVS on my way home
from barre a couple nights ago, and after standing in the beauty aisle googling
reviews for about 30 different concealers (some are too watery! some crease
after an hour! some are too pink!) I finally settled on the TruBlend FixStick Concealer Crayon from Cover Girl. Besides for the Cheekers blush in Classic Pink, I rarely
ever buy Cover Girl makeup. However, after a few days of using this FixStick
Crayon, I’m never splurging on concealer again.
This crayon has a smooth, creamy consistency that’s
incredibly easy to apply. I was concerned that a crayon might not blend enough
for under eye coverage, but it’s perfect and it doesn’t budge. Plus, the crayon
packaging makes it perfect for toting around in a purse for midday touchups. The
ivory shade is spot on for my porcelain skin, but I could see also buying one
of the darker shades to use for contouring. Reversely, one could use the darker
shade for concealing and the ivory for highlighting.
