The container is very small but the teensiest amount of Benefit's Erase Paste will go a very long way. Erase Paste can be used with the supplied tool or with a sponge or brush. I always suggest brushes in lieu of sponges as sponges also do what they're told - they absorb everything! While helpful for retaining water when washing your car, sponges will retain $$ product instead of disseminating it all where you intend when it comes to makeup. But I digress; continuing, the Benefit Erase Pastes will work nicely with all foundation consistencies, including mineral, as the powder will help to set them.
