      I WAS LOOKING FOR ANOTHER PRODUCT, HOWEVER, ULTA STORE WAS OUT OF IT. FOUND A SALES PERSON AND ASKED FOR A RECOMMENDATION. SHE STARTED HELPING ME LOOK FOR A PRODUCT THAT HID MY DARK CIRCLES. AND EVEN DEMONSTRATED HOW TO APPLY. MOST OF THE OTHER CONCEALERS I HAVE BEEN USING ARE TOO YELLOW OR HEAVY. THIS ONE IS PERFECT AND I WILL STAY WITH IT.

      Use it under my eyes for my very dark circles. It's great, highly pigmented and blends so smoothly.. Have used it for years, haven't found its match yet!a bit greasy--less is more, set right away. I apply it with a concealer brush and blends with my ring finger.

              Originally bought this to use under my eyes for concealer. However, I found that it would crease about 10 minutes after applying. It could have been something I was doing, but I have to put my makeup on quick in the morning so I can't really set it properly. But, I do love it to cover up blemishes and imperfections! If you have time to build this correctly I recommend 100%!!!

                Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste:

                I had high hopes for this product based on reviews I've read around the web. I unfortunately have dark brown under eye circles. I was hoping since this product was on the thicker side it would cover better. Unfortunately it didn't work as much as I wanted it to for the price. Not to mention the amount of time it takes to put it on correctly. I watched a gazillion YouTube videos where it really did help some. again for me though, the price wasn't worth keeping it since I wasn't in love with it. I bought the NYX conceal/contour pallet and surprisingly works A LOT better!

                  Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste:

                  I recently purchased this from Ulta, having fallen in love with other Benefit products. It provides absolutely perfect coverage and those dark purple circles under my eyes are nearly invisible now!

                  A VERY little bit of this product goes a very long way. It is thicker than it looks, so only use a tiny amount. Dot under your eye with the spatula provided and tap - not rub - the product until it is smooth, as the directions suggest. If it is caking or settling in creases, then you are using too much - clean up, try again, and use a little less and you're good to go!

                  I've tried many products to take care of the under eye area as well as a few other skin imperfections, and this one definitely exceeds them all! And since so little is needed at a time, you get a LOT out of the money spent on it. Highly recommended!

                    I love this product. I use it with a damp beauty blender under my eyes. I got the lightest one because I am fair. I have allergy eyes with some dark shadows and puffiness. I used to be loyal to Bobbi Brown under eye concealer but I think I'm converting to this one exclusively! It's a better price point, too!! Sold!!!

                          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!

                          Benefit does not test for or claim that their products are hypo-allergenic (least likely to cause an allergic reaction) or non-comedogenic (does not cause pimples & blackheads).

                          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.

                        I have really bad dark spots (discoloration) on my face and sun spots. I have tried everything to try to cover them but nothing seems to work.. Would this product cover them? If not what product should I try?

                          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 your purposes, you may prefer Benefit Cosmetics Boi-ing Concealer:
