Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste:

I started using this some time ago after I was introduced by my sister, I use it when I need to cover red spots, other blemishes and I apply it under my eyes daily, to hide dark spots. It's quite easy to easy, although sometimes I notice if I use too much it settles into the creases and shows lines, but it's easily fixable with some further blending. I use this right after I apply my foundation, but before I apply pressed powder and bronzer and I find that's when I get the best coverage.

Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste:

I have some horrible dark circles, I'm a new mom so I was desperate in hiding them and I found this! It's so great, I apply it with a eyeshadow blending brush and it's perfect!

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste:

    I don't spend a lot of money on beauty products, but when it's worth it, it's worth it. My dark circles are out of control, no matter how much makeup or concealer I wear. This stuff goes on smoothly and I notice a difference right away. I still have to use some other concealer over it but overall I think this is a great product!

        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.

            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.

                    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.
