      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste Brightening Concealer:

      Just looking at this in the jar, you wouldn't think it would cover dark circles or look at all natural, but the apricot tint is perfect for offsetting the purplish tone of undereye circles. A little really goes a long way and I would recommend starting with only a tiny amount and then adding as necessary for coverage. Also use the included spatula for dipping to avoid contamination. This also works well for smoothing out minor discolorations. But this is just a concealer, so if more coverage is needed, use foundation over it.

        After researching for a good under eye concealer for a while, I came across this item. I read reviews, watched youtube videos, and read lots of blog posts about it. I never spend this much on a product so I had high hopes. Unfortunately, it's nothing special. I have cheap concealers that do the same job. I will NOT be buying this item again.

                Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste Brightening Concealer:

                Recently, I have developed melasma on my forehead, cheekbones, and above my lip... obviously the last places you would want dark spots to pop up. My skin is naturally light, but I tan very easily. So, any amount of sun instantly makes my melasma spots much darker. After watching YouTube videos of others who had success covering large patches of discoloration I decided to give Erase Paste a try. Unfortunately for me, it was ZERO help in providing any coverage :/ I tried applying under and over foundation, with other concealers, with a GOOD primer and moisturizer, but no matter which way, my melasma was still extremely noticeable. This also dried very cakey on my skin and made me look like I had a lot more "texture" than I actually do. I was really hoping I could give this product 5 stars, but it did not work well for my purposes.

                  I love this product! As an.older woman I have dark cirxlest under my eyes from aging and from when my allergies act up. This really helps to cover that and to also brighten the entire eye area so I don't look as tired too. I definitely recommend it if you are looking for something to brighten up your under eye and lid area. And it stays on all day too! Was a bit pricy for my taste but worth it.

                    Just too greasy and settles in under eye creases even after being "set". If you have very dry skin, this may benefit you. It is better than wearing nothing at all, but for the price I would not purchase again.

                        Fakeup is a hydrating crease-control concealer that hides dark circles & diffuses fine lines for a silky smooth, ultra-natural undereye look. Erase Paste is a brightening concealer in a concentrated cream formula for concealing dark circles. If you have dry undereyes, we recommend Fakeup!

                        You can find Fakeup here at ULTA: http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod5120021

                        A:

                        You can use your finger or a concealer brush, gorgeous! Dip your finger or brush into Erase Paste - a little goes a long way! Dot the inner and outer corners of your eye and delicately blend.
