Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste:

I get bad undereye circles and this completely covers them.It also covers slight imperfections and blemishes.The only down is that it settles in creases so i have to vheck for that throughout the day. But i would not recommend using the spatula that comes with it, it gives too much product

      I mostly use this underneath my eyes. Although I do not even have large bags, it really helps to brighten up my face and make me look more awake. It's a great product as you can even use it as concealer. It goes on very smoothly and stays on for the entire day. I have not had any problems with this product yet.

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste:

        When I first put this product on at 8:00 am, it covers well and blends nicely. However, I'm already showing dark circles again by noon. It's almost as if it melts off. I use mineral makeup and would think that a setting powder would keep it from running, or smudging, but it doesn't. I think I'll go back to the Boing after this. It works better and is cheaper. I guess the good news is that this stuff lasts for forever, so it will be a while before I buy something new but I am not happy.

              Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste:

              I've heard great things about Erase Paste, so after using my ring finger to dab coverage under my eyes, I figured I was "doing it wrong." I watched a number of YouTube tutorials and some recommended using a setting powder. That didn't work, because it settled into the lines around my eyes. I was sold this product as an eyelid primer, and it is truly not intended for use as a shadow primer. The color is very nice for neutralizing darker blue-purple shadows under my eyes, but it seems to crease quite quickly. I will keep this product in my arsenal but will not buy it again and will likely not recommend it to anyone else looking for the "Holy Grail" of concealers.

                      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.

                      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.
