Benefit Powderflage ($28.00) is a great product for setting your concealer, to further help diffuse the appearance of dark circles and minimize concealer settling into fine lines. I found it didn’t work nearly as well without a cream/liquid concealer underneath first — I don’t normally wear concealer since I don’t have too noticeable dark circles, so I figured I’d try it without first. You don’t need a lot of product, which is good, because the container only contains 0.11 oz of product–but it should last you six months or more, I imagine. The brush included with the product is really, really small. I actually liked using a fluffy shadow brush to apply this rather than the fan brush! I know I’ve heard several people rave about this over Laura Mercier’s Brightening Powder, but I haven’t tried it, so I can’t compare unfortunately. Overall, it helped to soften any darkness under my eyes, and I really liked how well it set my cream concealer (Kanebo) so it didn’t budge, migrate, or settle.

    Interesting…I’m going to have to try this. I tried Laura Mercier’s Secret Brightening Powder and didn’t like it at all. It made my circles stand out even more – and I tried the darker shade.

    I have both, and have tried both. Laura Mercier for years, and it is great. The Benefit has a pinkish cast and it looks like it highlights the under eye area, but I think so far, it is more drying for my eyes. I have to try a different eye cream underneath. You’re right tho.. the little Benefit brush is too small and fragile. A good fan works better.

    @ Shefali: maybe you should try the lighter shade? the darker one would make your undereyes darker.. imho.

  5. It would be nice to see more of this.

    I tried this but the concealer still sets in my fine lines as with a normal powder. Disappointment for me.
