Maybe I got a bad batch? My chief complaint on this one is that it does not apply evenly. I've tried applying with a brush, with my fingers, with moisturizer underneath, with no moisturizer underneath... what ever I do, it doesn't go on smooth, i.e., there are "clumps" of pigment throughout. I don't think it's my undereye area, because my other concealers (Bobbi Brown, Edward Bess, even my Maybelline) do not do this. The positive is, if you are a NC 20 or so (as I am), this is a very good color match. It also does "brighten" like they advertise. But not my HG. I'm surprised because this gets a lot of of love out there, but I'll be continuing my search for an HG.
Amazing. This concealer is for dark undereye circles and shadows on the face. It illuminates, conceals and brightens. It is expensive BUT when you consider how long it lasts then it really isn't. I've had mine for a year before I needed to rebuy. You need very little. Minimal creasing.
Great Concealer, great coverage for my fair oily skin. Great you gotta try this !
I really like this as an undereye concealer. Unlike others, it goes on thick and the color really cancels out darkness, but doesn't crease throughout the day. (I am late 20s, no wrinkles yet, so not sure how it would work on different skin types.)
Finally! I found a concealer that works for me. This is HG (for now). The color is more pink/salmon so it corrects dark circles. The consistency is very creamy and soft therefore easy to blend. You only need a dab. The coverage is great...not wimpy or too sheer. It lasts 6-8 hours. Minimal creasing! That was my biggest problem with all other concealers, they settled into lines within 10 minutes. Erase paste does not so I am beyond thrilled.
my only gripe is the price and amount of product you get for that inflated price.
I have tried........EVERYTHING...to cover my dark under-eye circles. Nothing worked.
Just today, I went into ULTA and attempted to try just one more. I gasped in astonishment as I sampled Erase Paste in Fair. My circles were gone. I bought it immediately. It is worth every single penny.
Ladies, if you aren't sure - go to ULTA or Sephora and try it. Unbelievable. I'll never be without it again.
THANK YOU, BENEFIT!
I ordered this product online and waited nervously for it to arrive. I was a bit concerned because I had read many reviews that said it was very pink, and I have SO much trouble finding bases that work with my skin tone. I'm very pale - have to buy the lightest shade available in foundations, but often still have trouble matching my skin tone - for example with Dior foundations of the two palest shades, one is too yellow and the other too pink. I've NEVER found a concealer that matches my skin tone. So my erase paste arrived today, I eagerly tore it open and ran off to experiment. It's perfect! not pink at all! nice and brightening for under eye circles, and works beautifully as a subtle highlighter (I hate most highlighters because most are so damn sparkly and look ridiculous in natural light) lovely light consistency, not thick and sticky like many other concealers I've encountered. On the down side, you need to have pretty good skin to use it...I have good skin except for a couple of little patches of occasional dryness and some large pores/tiny blackheads on my chin. both of which became extremely obvious with erase paste applied. So if you have VERY pale, relatively flawless skin, and just want something to even out dark circles or redness, you will love this product!
I purchased this product to cover a scar (it's thick and offers opaque coverage, FAR superior to the DermaBlend colors I tried) but it's worked really well for the redness from my rosacea, pimples and dark circles. It has this weird peachy undertone that covers everything.
HG concealer. Will definitely repurchase.
This concealer is a great shade for cancelling out the discoloration associated with undereye shadows. The light salmon shade works for a lot of skin tones without leaving a pale halo on your eye socket.
Unfortunately, there is a lot of slip agents in this product. It probably works best on normal to dry skin with few wrinkles...which is a pretty small demographic, if you think about it. I find that just a dab of this stuff will end up in any creases around the eye in few hours, even if set with powder. Also, this product just seems to 'disappear' after a few hours on my oily skin. It literally seems to thin out with skin oils and migrate away from it's intended place, leaving my dark circles looking worse than ever about 6-8 hours after application.
This concealer works well when I'm going out for the evening or for touch-ups, but it doesn't make it through a full work day. Because of this, I feel like this concealer is too expensive for something that isn't usable 24/7. I would recommend getting a sample and trying this concealer before buying.
Pretty decent concealer. I'm used to using Mac concealers but i find they're usually too orange for me.
