    I use it for my undereyes and it works perfectly, but I love it more for the red or different toned colors around my nose. It's just so good and you don't even need a lot of product.

        I use this to cover the darkness under my eyes. no matter how much sleep I get I always have dark bags and people always tell me I look tired. this clears it right up. It looks natural, easy to use, and people now tell me that I finally look like I got a good nights sleep!

            SOOOO disappointed. I had this recommended to me in the store. My biggest gripe with concealer is that it tends to settle in fine lines even if I dont use a lot. The salesperson told me this stuff was great and if I get the creases its because I am using too much. I got home from her application and there were creases. I tried it sparsely againg this morning and withing a mjnute the product was settling into creases. My lines are very fine...not deep and I do not have oily skin.

            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste:

            I had heard a lot about this product and wanted to give it a try. It does what it says it does...covers. However, I have to put matte powder on top of it so that it has a drier appearance/feel. I put this on and hours later, it still feels kind of greasy (for lack of a better word). I have to avoid touching my under eye area for fear that I'll smudge it. Also, the little spatula that comes with it is worthless. You end up using WAY more than you need. Just use the tip of your ring finger and dab it on.
            It looks great and the coverage is awesome. But it doesn't stay put if you touch it at all. I'm not sure I'd purchase it again...it's pretty expensive for what you get.

              This has been THE BEST cover up for my Melasma! I have tried several products but they left my skin looking grey-ish rather than covering my dark spots. This color is perfection and blends perfectly with any skin tone. Love it!!

                              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?

                              This product can be used to conceal imperfections such as scars, blemishes, and spots of discoloration. Use the side of your finger to draw an “X” on top of the imperfection. Pat & blend with your ring finger.
