Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste:

It covers my dark circles great, but after a bit it's all on the creases. It feels like it rubs off easily too, but I'm trying to keep it so I'm finding ways to make it work using powder over it, or the primer from Benefit underneath and it seems to be okay.

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste:

      I was pretty disappointed with this product. After reading some reviews, I was excited to try it, I thought it was the "one" for me. Only 3 choices to choose from and the closest one to my skin tone does not cover well at all. I usually use "tan" cosmetics. It also gives a peachy look and looks caked.

        I bought this product because one of my youtube people used it and liked it so my expectations were kind of high but it does not cover my dark circles at all. To lighten them sightly i had to add, in my opinion, quite a bit and it settles into creases very easily. I would not buy this product again.

          I have heard praises sung about this thing and had to try it myself. WHERE HAS THIS THNG BEEN ALL MY LIFE!!!!!!!!!!! Dark circles, GONE. Blemishes, GONE. Dark Spots, GONE! My only complaints are that it settles into creases under the eyes and can dry out skin sometimes, so don't apply too much.

              Amazing product!! I was a little skeptical at first because I didn't see a significant difference when I sampled the product in the store, but I think that had to do more with the store lighting. I went ahead and purchased because it was so highly recommended, and when I tried it again at home, I noticed a major difference. It not only covers, but "lifts" your under eyes as well. No need to use a lot, just a few dabs under each eye does the trick.

              Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste:

              This is a wonderful product. It has smooth flawless coverage and really makes your eyes look bright and well rested. The consistency is on the creamy side. I like to dab the very tip of my ring or pinky finger in and then dab under the eyes. It blends very well with a concealer or foundation brush, and can be used as spot treatment throughout the day for tired eyes. Also great to use after long plane rides so that you don't look so "washed".

              My only con is that it is on the expensive side of the spectrum, but I only use it for days when extra coverage is needed or on long trips, so it lasts a long time.

                Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste:

                Okay, is this magic or something? It literally works WONDERS. I recommend this to anyone who is trying to hide any discoloration. The lady at Ulta recommended me a color that I felt was too dark for me, but I just decided to trust her judgement, and I'm so happy I did. She really knew what she was saying and it is so perfect. Do not be alarmed if the color seems a little too dark in the pot, because it blends out so easily, and you can add highlighter to it to make it even more bright. This product is perfect for hiding discoloration and if you want a highlight, then you may want to buy another product with this. But I looked far and wide for a product to do what this one does, and it's seriously such a good buy.

                    A:

                    Erase paste is an easy-to-blend, creamy formula that has melon-pink undertones and brightening pigments—perfect to neutralize the blue tones of dark under-eye circles.

                    Boi-ing — With more golden undertones, this industrial-strength concealer provides long-lasting full coverage.

                    For extremely dark circles, these products can be applied together. The order of application would be Erase Paste first as a corrector, then Boi-ing layered over as a concealer.

                    Both work beautifully for skin of any age!

                    Erase Paste features melon-pink undertones that are ideal for color-correcting dark under eye circles; to conceal blemishes, dark spots, or imperfections on the face, you may prefer Benefit Cosmetics Boi-ing Concealer, which features a more neutral undertone:

                    However, many do use Erase Paste as a concealer on the face; we recommend testing both products at your nearest ULTA store to see what works best for you!

                    We recommend first applying an anti-aging eye cream like Benefit Cosmetics It's Potent Eye Cream (Item #: 2229445), which is formulated with peptides to help minimize fine lines and wrinkles on the eye contour. Layer Erase Paste over your eye cream to conceal dark circles and brighten the eye area. Applying eye cream first will also help Erase Paste glide on effortlessly and smoothly.
