a great buy!

By Tori

from Navasota, Texas

Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste:

I bought this product yesterday and couldn't be happier with my purchase. It does a great job of hiding my dark circles and brightening my under eye area with minimal caressing. Another great thing is that a little goes a long way, so I feel it will last a long time. I will definitely repurchase.

Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste:

This stuff would probably cover anything you wanted to hide on your face. I love it and the specialist at Ulta that reccommended it suggested I apply on top of my foundation, which I have never been told to do before, it is amazing. It is a little pricey but it is worth the extra oney and a little dab goes a long way.

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste:

      I have such a terrible time with the dark circles under my eyes. Many other products I tried either did nothing for me, or had to be layered on so thick that they caked, creased, and looked horrible. This has been the best thing I've ever used. I apply it before my foundation, blending it past where I "need" it since it does have it's own color. Then I use my foundation, and finish with a light eye brightener for the last bit of brightness. I've never looked more well rested before.

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste:

      I bought this while I was looking for new concealers to try out. For the price that this was for I was very disappointed. It is a decent concealer but I'd prefer some of my drug store oldie but goodies. I felt like this did settle into my creases and it can look a little cakey. I would not buy again just because I don't think it was worth the money.

                  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!

                  A:

                  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.
