I have very dark circles and have very fair skin with pink undertones. I love this concealer. I didn't like the pot at first, but then I used a concealer brush and it's perfect to control the amount I want. It doesn't settle into fine lines, but doesn't hide them either...
This really is the best under eye concealer I have ever used. Really brightens up the face.
I have MAJOR darkness under my eyes (hereditary) and now with age (38) I'm getting fine lines and -gasp!- crinkles! ew.
This concealer was great for me! Didn't settle in lines and went on very smooth with great coverage that lasts all day. Now this is only if i apply loose powder over to set. W/o l/p it does settle in lines and shines bit. I think the name "paste" scared me a bit but reviews here seemed so good that I had to give it a try.
Will definitely buy again!
Ok, I was sucked into the Erase Paste hype, thinking I needed a 'good' concealer, even though I have about 6 already at home. I paid $28 (after tax) for this, and its a teeny weeny tiny jar with a little spoon/spatula thing for product removal. Ok, so like all BeneFit products, very very cute. The color of the jar is pink, so it even looks cute on your vanity. I purchased the 'light' shade (Mac NC20) and its a perfect color match for me. As an undereye concealer this works just fine, As a blemish concealer it tends to slip a bit unless you administer heavy powder immediately. The problem? It works 'just fine'. For $28 I expect a little more than 'just fine'. I'm going to return this and see if I can't continue my search for a really fantastic concealer.
Yes, this is really a paste and requires a certain technique for using it properly.
I think this works best as a concealer for dark circles under the eyes but it really exaggerates wrinkles, even fine lines. Your really need to be sure to moisturize very well and try to avoid putting the product directly on wrinkles. I am 27 but have some fine lines and they look much worse if the Erase Paste gets anywhere near them. This does work really well for me as far as disguising dark circles is concerned.
This product is also pretty good for covering acne but I don't actually know if it is non-comedogenic. I just recently purchased a few items from Benefit for the first time; because I am not familiar with the Benefit line I don't know if all of their products are supposed to be non-comedogenic. When I looked at the insert I couldn't find any information about this.
I wish that the packaging was a little different, perhaps in a tube and that it was less expensive. It is the best concealer I have used so I think I would repurchase, but I am conservative about how much I spend on cosmetics; if I could find something similar and less in price I would probably opt for that instead.
Pretty expensive for such small amount. I liked the creaminess of the concealer, but the SA matched me to Medium when I'm NC20 in MAC. The light shade was too pink based in my opinion and the Medium turned out too orange. Wish they had more shade selection.
Well, Firstly I am a Benefit Junkie but I normally like to buy the sparkly,bronzy,colourful things and don't like buying 'practical' things like concealer! However Erase Paste is the best Benefit product I ever bought! I have very fair skin and the light tone is perfect. Usually I use bo-ing and that works great but Erase Paste is like a miracle cream! I use it as the booklet suggests, scrape a bit out with the spatula, put it on my hand and use my finger to apply. This works great for me.
This cream seriously does appear to erase blemishes. I apply it on top of my foundation on all blemishes when I have them and under my eyes. It feels so silky and gives your face a perfect matte look. It makes your skin look so good that you feel you could almost go out with just foundation and concealer on! (I haven't but it's tempting!)
This product works for me because I like the 'flawless look' but if you were going for something a bit more natural, I can see how it may be a bit heavy. However it works so well and provides such amazing coverage, i just love it!!
I bought it about 2 months ago and I am scraping out the jar now (the only bad thing about Erase Paste - the jar is quite annoying but I can live with it). That's only because I use a fair amount and sometimes use twice a day if I am going out in the evening.
It is definitely worth the money and I will be buying another jar this week!
Wow! Iím so impressed by this!!
When I opened the packaging I was disappointed; the jar seemed tiny & the FAIR shade seemed too dark. But the product is really easy to blend & if you use the (included) spatula to measure the amount of product, the jar will last a while.
When you apply Erase Paste you wonít notice much difference in the mirror, but when the light hits your face the brightening effects kick in. Lots of products go on about reflecting light from your imperfections, but in this case it really works.
My skin appears even, most blemishes are covered & my under eye shadows are greatly reduced. What more can you ask for? I use my Erase Paste as foundation & have received loads of compliments on the condition of my skin.
Buying Erase Paste was a total waste of money. I bought it in the fair color and hoped it would erase my dark under eye circles. This paste was thick, but did not cover my circles. It also didn't take long to settle into the fine lines under my eyes. I had a hard time getting the right amount of product out of the little jar using the spatula. And it was too messy to stick my finger into the jar. I would have returned this, but I purchased it online and did not have the time to mail it back. I threw it away.
This is probably the worst Benefit product I've experienced. It is SO thick and concentrated. And, even when I just use a little, I feel like my face is being painted on and my skin feels like it can't breathe. The packing is weird because you can't use your hands and have to use that paddle to get it out. Also, there is SO much (considering that you only use a small amount) but it expires in 6 months which would be a waste. I returned mine
I bought the Erase Paste No1 (Fair) yesterday at Shoppers Drug Mart for $28 CAD. The only other BeneFit product I've tried before this one, was Lemon Aid (yellow base for lids) which I like alot.
I absolutely love this product! I'm very fair; don't tan ~ only burn and this colour is perfect for me. I've got fine wrinkles under my eyes so I was concerned that any concealer would settle in those wrinkles, but this one doesn't. I think the trick is to warm the product up on the back of your hand (just as the pamphlet explains). And I didn't have to use much at all - just a tiny dab and blend, blend, blend. (To those other reviewers who said it was too thick, then you're probably using way too much.) Then I applied my usual Pur Minerals 4-in-1 powder all over my face, and you can not see any crinklie wrinklies under my eyes.
I agree with others on this one....that it's too bad the little spatula wasn't attached in some way; I know I'm going to lose it sooner or later. But overall, I highly recommend Erase Paste.
