Benefit: Powderlage makes me sparkle!


Camouflage dark circles and lines with Benefit’s latest product and my latest obsession, the “Powderflage“. I have been keeping this in my make up bag– not recommended as all the powder spilled to the top and when I opened it and got all over my new dress. So now I leave it on my make up counter to avoid more spills of this precious powder that makes me sparkle ever so lightly while hiding the fact that I have not slept properly since I returned home from my NY-LA adventure.

I use it over my Laura Mercier concealer and just lightly tap it in with the flat brush (enclosed with Powderflage). Voila, as good as 9 hours of sleep! $28 at

  1. Hi Tina,

    Does this product only come in one shade that flatters all complexions? I too, don’t get enough sleep (soccer mom), and being Italian really makes it bad. I’d love to try this, but want to make sure that on fair skin tones with dark features, it won’t look too white, if you know what I mean.

  2. So, on a related note, which is better? Laura Mercier’s concealer combo, or Bobbi Brown’s? I can add this on top of either, I guess. 😀

  3. I work for Benefit! Yay!

    I actually have used both the Laura Mercier and Bobbi Brown concealer combos and I prefer the Bobbi formula.

    The powders in the two formulas (which I used before the release of Powderflage) always made me look cakey and dry, but I couldn’t find anything else that worked. However, the Powerflage is perfect. It does come in that one color, but I am a dark tan color (I am Some Kinda Gorgeous Deep or Estee Lauder Double Wear Light 4 or Bobbi Brown Honey or Laura Mercier Secret Concealer 3 dark) and it works for me!

    I love it. Everyone loves it.

    I and all the girls I work with can’t get enough of it.

  4. Hi there, I have dark hair and fair/medium skin tone, my friend is very fair and blonde and it works on both of us. It is a neutral shimmery shade, so obsessed with it. Go try it at the counter, I guarantee you will love it!

  5. Hi, it is not too shimmery for day! Go to a Sephora or benefit counter and test for yourself. It’s a subtle highlighting shine, fabulous!
