Good morning everyone, what have you been up to this weekend? I have actually written this post in advance, I am in Thailand at the moment. A few readers have requested for a review on this product because I have been using it a lot in my looks. Here it is, I hope it helps.
I have previously mentioned this product here.
According to the website, Benefit Powderflage is a light-diffusing powder concealer for under eyes and face. It’s virtually weightless and camouflages fine lines and dark circles. Because it does not absorb water, it not only camouflages but is a famous setting powder for the under eyes or face. Wear alone or apply over cream concealer to help it last longer.
I had this product with me for the longest time but never realized its full potential until half a year ago. Initially, I was quite disappointed because it didn’t seem to make any difference. I wouldn’t say it makes a good concealer because it doesn’t provide enough coverage (for me) and I don’t have very dark undereye circles to begin with.
But, it makes an excellent setting powder for concealer.
Due to its ultra finely milled texture and light-diffusing properties, it wears so light under the eyes – I couldn’t feel its existence, it doesn’t cake, it’s doesn’t fill in the fine lines under my eyes nor makes my undereye area dry.
This product comes with a mini fan brush which I might have discarded. I prefer using a dense fluffy brush like MAC 225 or Inglot 6SS for application. Burberry No. 11 and Laura Mercier Angled Eye Colour Brush are also perfect for applying Benefit Powderflage – the slanted angle is brilliant for reaching the inner corners of the eyes.
For myself, I pick up a generous amount of product with either brushes mentioned above, tap off the access and apply over my concealer in a rolling motion (or patting motion) before setting my face with loose powder.
I hope my camera captured the beauty of this product for you in the above pictures.
Benefit Powderflage brightens up the undereye area in a very natural way. If you are looking for something that will give you a pow-wow factor, this is not for you. I love it and will continue using it, if I ever finish this product, I will buy it again – this product takes forever to finish.
I think what makes me so addicted to using this product is its light-diffusing properties. It reflects light and my undereye area looks brighter and plump especially in flash photography.
Other then under the eyes, I also apply this product on my cupid’s bow, between my brows and occasionally along the bridge of my nose for some subtle definition.
I would recommend this product to
I believe this product is suitable for most people, most skin tone because of its light and sheer quality. It’s a great agent for setting concealer. I have not found a substitute for this product yet – or maybe I didn’t look hard enough. This is a product I enjoy using and I think it will benefit those with less severe dark undereye circles who are looking for something to lift up the eye area.
Some say the Benefit Powderflage is magic in a pot.
Thank you for reading.
