The best concealer I have EVER tried.
covers dark circles perfectly, great for winter, and covers spots too!
I always hate, for some reason, to say I won't buy a product again, especially when I am on the fence about it . That said, this product works for me and I will probably use most of it, I just can't say it is something special. It seems to do its job but the consistency is rather thick and I have noticed a little creasing even when I am careful to use it with a light touch. I have found several other products I like better but did want to try this out. Oh well. Live & learn. continued >>
This is probably the worst concealer I've ever used, I simply do not understand the hype (or the price!)
I bought this thinking it would "erase" my dark circles, which it doesn't. When I tried it out in the store, I stupidly put it over my foundation, which of course wasn't the best way to try a cosmetic out. What this concealer does do is brighten the under eye area up, but doesn't cover the dark circles. Maybe if you have very slight dark circles it will work, but if your like me and have awful hereditary ones your SOL with this product. However, I will say that this makes a pretty good eye shadow primer.
I purchased this once before a couple of years ago and didn't like it because I found it cakey. But I recently bought it again in a moment of weakness because I was on a Benefit kick. Surprisingly, the second time around I really liked this. Now that I am more skilled with makeup, I realize that I was applying too much before and that's why it was cakey. A little goes a long way with this stuff.
So expensive, but like I said, it doesn't take much to do the job. When I applied this, I immediately saw a difference. My dark circles were gone, thus making my eyes pop much more. Many undereye concealers are too yellow for me, but Erase Paste is much rosier so it's good for pink-toned, fair-skinned women. This product also covers my acne quite well. I would say it's full coverage.
It's a bonus that the packaging is so fun and colorful!
I agree with the reviewer who commented on the smell. It does have that odd, waxy smell that the "makeup" in a child's play set of makeup has. This is their lightest shade, and it's still too dark for me. I have a broken capillary and had to put at least five layers on to cover it up, and then I just had a dark peachy spot instead of a red spot. It covers up the dark circles under my eyes, but again, it just makes them a different shade of dark. And because it's so cakey, it shows off fine lines easily.
This is not my HG concealer, and I would NOT use it under eyes, as my complaint about this is that is sets really fast, is cakey (because it's so thick, like tacky), and would be hard to blend, and would cause alot of rubbing near the eyes.
It IS great for a horrible blemish, or let's say you have a random body blemish that you need to SPACKLE OVER. this is good for that, just set it with some powder.
For the price, I need something for versatile, and as always I am a sucker for a creamier formula.
This is hands down the best concealer I have ever used. It does not settle into lines, and the coverage is smooth and light.
I gave into the rave reviews I had been hearing about this product and unfortunately I was disappointed. Firstly, it has an odd smell - not exactly rancid but sort of like cheap, play makeup you get as a child. The packang is adorable, but the price is too steep.
I also found it settled into lines (which should not be noticeable if you're 19 haha!) and looked cakey. I would not repurchase or recommend. However, for a fraction of the price check out Hard Candy Glamoflauge. It's amazing coverage and only around $7 at Walmart.
I don't really like the little pot (and I have no idea if I am meant to "scoop" with the little spatula - I just threw it away). The apricot tone really cancels out dark undereye circles well. What annoys me about this concealer is that it's too pink to use anywhere else. Also, now that my skin is somewhat paler in winter, I feel like the color match isn't as good as it initially was - might be more of a summer product. Overall, like other reviewers have said, if you set it with powder, the overall effect still is quite good.
This is the best under eye concealer I've ever used, it ranks HG status for me.
It covers dark circles wonderfully but you MUST set it with powder or it will crease like crazy.
The color is a great match for me, I don't find it too pink at all for my NW10-15ish skin.
It is a bit pricey for the amount that you get but it lasts forever since you only need to use the tiniest amount. I've been using mine every day since March (almost 8months) and I still have well over 50% left.
It comes with a small spatula to scoop out product but it's basically useless as you will always end up with too much product. It's easiest just to dip your ring finger into the pot and pat around the eyes.
