      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste:

      I had had dark circles under my eyes since childhood. I wear glasses rather than contacts lenses, because glasses help hide the dark circles better. The beauticians at every makeup counter I could find have failed to provide a workable solution, I am seriously considering surgery, combined with laser treatments to help alleviate this condition.

      For those with less extreme conditions, this concealer may work fine. However, at least on my skin, the "pinkish" color also seems to accentuate the circles, rather than help conceal them. With my very fair, translucent skin tone, even the lightest shade of this concealer is too dark. To lighten it up, I have to layer it over a base of creamy white eye shadow, and then set it with a loose translucent powder to prevent it from settling into the creases.

      I'm giving it 3 stars regardless because I really like Benefit cosmetics. It's a great product line, and realize that my personal experience with this particular product is probably not typical.

                Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste:

                It's okay. I got it expecting a heavier formulation, more like the eponymous paste, because I have very dark blue circles under my eyes, which are hard to cover. But it's only a concealer cream just like any other, neither better nor worse.

                          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.

                          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.
