so far, i love this concealer. it covers up my very dark under eye circles really well and is easy to blend. you only have to use a very tiny amount to get good coverage, so the product lasts for a very long time. i would re-buy this concealer, but it wont be anytime soon.
OH and you MUST set this with something. I set it with elf's translucent setting powder. perfect match!!
I got a sample of this at sephora cuz iv been dying to try it, but to tell ya the truth its really not that great.
some what brightens under the eye
sheer coverage, even after 2 layers of it.
feels kinda sticky
very disappointed in it. had such high expectations for it.
I love this. I'd been using Revlon Age Defying Spa Concealer (the one in the click pen) for awhile and I liked it, but lately it just wasn't cutting it on my under eye circles. I'd been eyeing Erase Paste for a long time but I was worried that it was too thick/sticky, and also it's quite pricey. I bought it on a desperate day, swayed by the salmon-pink color which I've always heard is good for counteracting bluish circles. I find that it's super easy to blend (with just my ring finger, which I dab into the pot) and you only need a tiny bit, and it brightens incredibly well. I use this every day now and I always feel so much better with it on - I actually look forward to putting it on, and the little jar is so cute! However, I'd never use it on blemishes, because I think the pink tone that makes it so good for under eyes would look too obvious on skin.
Good colour. Nice consistency. Mediocre coverage. I'm not overly impressed with this product. I bought it on recommendation by an employee at Sephora for my hereditary circles, and it does lighten the darkness quite a bit, but they are still very noticeable. The $30 I payed is not worth it - I plan to try the Laura Mercier Secret eye concealer next, because it is supposed to moisturize while this one easily cakes and it takes me 10 minutes just to blend it so it looks natural.
I bought this product because I've always loved the brand and my sister mentioned how she liked it better than my favourite concealer -Boiing!
First of all, I honestly have no use of the tiny spatula that came in the box. This is also TOO creamy for my taste. Just dab a little or else... Bottom line is: it doesn't cover my under-eye circles as well as Boiing did. Lastly, I noticed (to my horror!) that it looked "cakey" and so obvious after a few hours of work.
In fairness, this is a good concealer for pimples and small imperfections but I am still in search for a better (and more lasting) concealer for my under eye circles.
I don't think I'd repurchase again.
This is a nice creamy concealer, and even though I think it works well, it can get a little cakey if you're not careful. Also, I don't like this for under my eyes, its so creamy that it creases in my fine lines by the middle of the day. But for covering my cycstic acne, it works well. It is a bit expensive, and even though I said that I wold buy this again, if something better comes along, I won't.
I bought this product after reading mixed comments here and watching them on You Tube. Had I listened, I may ot have purchased Erase Paste. Turns out that this concealer is really wonderful and does everything they claim it will. I have fair skin and very dark circles all around my eyes. Erase Paste took care of this situation completely.
Some reviewers, especially on YouTube, had complained about the recommended application, which is with a small spatula. I was very able to use a medium sized concealer brush to lightly sweep over the product directly and apply with ease. A little will go a long, long way. Next time I will try this product in medium so that I don't have to go over the application with a powder or concealor closer to my skin color. This is one great product.!!
I think if you can find the right shade in this product it could work well. I understand the packaging is hard to deal with, but its ok. Its very creamy, so it doesn't accentuate dry lines and it really does brighten. Less is more with this product. If you apply too much, then like any concealer, it will crease. I really like to pair this off with the powderplage. This will set the erase paste and prevent creasing.
I am always on the hunt for a good concealer, due to my very noticeable dark under eye circles (inherited from my mother). So while looking through Sephora I came across Benefits Erase Paste and decided to try it out.
The consistency is very thick, I found it difficult to blend with a brush and had to use my fingers to smooth it over. I try to use brushes as much as possible because blood rushes to my face when I touch it.
Once it's blended it adds a lot of brightness to the eye area, which is nice but you have to be careful because you can easily overdo it. I usually set this with powder, but even then I've found it doesn't have very good staying power; on me it lasts about 3-4 hours.
Lastly, the packaging sucks. It comes in a small pot with a protective lid (not attached to the main lid), as well as a spatula. When I bought this product I thought it would be okay, but in practice it's a little annoying to scoop out the product and then replace everything to get up and go. In fact, I actually lost the tiny spatula on a recent move, so I've been breaking a Qtip in half and using the rod to scoop out the product.
It's not a bad concealer that does what it says for the most part, but I am going to continue looking for something better. Thanks for reading. xx
So after finally talking myself into buying some mega-expensive Benefit products, I got this in the mail pretty recently. It comes in a cute little tub, with a tiny amount of actual product inside. The box contains a lesson and a little scooper for getting the product out. The scooper is a waste of time, it's really not that hard to get out of the tub. I also use a concealer brush instead of a finger because well..i find it works better. So like the other reviewers have been saying, this is a horrible under eye concealer. It falls into wrinkles and makes you look terrible. It is however, a great blemish concealer. It works great on covering imperfections in the skin and this shade works well with my skin. I wouldn't necessarily buy this again because my make up addiction tends to mean I have about 10 of anything on the go at one time, and never finish any of them. Even if I did run out, I probably wouldn't buy this again, I'd try out Boi-ing or a Mac concealer just to see the difference. Overall, pretty good - great for blemishes, bad for undereye, and the scooper is a waste of time.
UPDATE: After using this for a while I realised what a TERRIBLE concealer it is. Super hard to blend and just bleurgh, waste of money. Was sitting redundant but then I thought hey, why not try it as an eyelid primer? OMG I am so glad I did because this is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G as an eyelid primer. I have oily lids and with this, not one crease. Literally, don't waste your time using it as a concealer, it's the best eyelid primer ever.
