    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste:

    I was very disappointed in this product. I saw on Pinterest that it was recommended as the best concealer. it was very greasy and after about 1/2 hour I could see my dark circles coming through and had to apply frequently throughout the day. Not to mention, it was expensive.. I returned it the next day and went back to my cheapo concealer which did a better job.

          They call it paste for a reason. This product is pasty and difficult to blend. It sits on top of the skin and beads up into clumpy little balls of makeup--very attractive. Skip this one.

            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste:

            I actually like this as a concealer. As someone with oily skin, I've found most concealers to wear off through the day but this one has fairly good staying power. My only complaint is, in using it under my eyes, it does settle in the creases. I've noticed that a little bit of primer underneath the concealer seems to remedy this issue though. A little bit seems to go a long way as well so the jar seems like it will last awhile.

              Luckily a tiny bit goes a long way, because I almost passed on this product when I saw the price for such a teeny little package.....sooooo glad I sprang for it. This is a fantastic under-eye cream/imperfection cover. Applies so sweetly and creamily that "paste" is almost a crime in the naming of it. My entire eye area looks brighter and this makes me happy :)

                    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.
