This is the first time I've purchased a color correcting concealer for my eyes and I think this product should only be used as such because it has a peach color/coral color
(I have medium fair skin with yellow undertones and green/blueish/sallow under eye circles)



What I like:
-Really does cancel out the discoloration of my under eyes
-the packaging is super cute
-the color is perfect
-brightens my eyes and makes me look awake even when I really look like a zombie
great coverage

What I don't like:
-If your under eyes are dry or if you have any fine lines, the thickness of this concealer REALLY likes to settle,crease, and accentuate them, so you really have to get the application down and see what works for you

-like a few other benefit products I've tried it has a weird smell, like plastic or chemicals or something. it smells just like the foundation faker by benefit. Yuck!



I might repurchase but I also want to try bobbi brown's color corrector to see if the texture is better.
also tried the maybelline age rewind concealer in both of their "corrector" shades and neither were exactly toned correctly to counter my undereye circles but it did have a vastly nicer texture than this.

This is a great, creamy & full coverage concealer that does a fantastic job of covering dark circles if you do it right - apply it ONLY on the dark area underneath the eye (being careful to avoid fine lines as it will settle) then gently dabbing it in with a finger. If you use it over your whole eye area it will settle in lines and make you look older.

I use this to cover marks that have been left from spots and it covers them like magic :) however, I have found that it is way too thick to use under your eyes as it settles in fine lines and makes you look way older :( but, it lasts ages

The coverage is really good and conceals undereye circles. However, it slides around a lot if you barely touch it. Sometimes, it brings out the fine lines near my eyes.

I have bad, hereditary dark circles and fine lines under my eyes. I have tried many concealers and none of them treated my dark circles so nicely as this product did! My skin is a medium shade with yellow undertones. I get more fair/medium in the winter months but, still decided to opt for the medium shade in this product. When I first opened it up, it was pinker than I expected but, the tint just cancels out the blue/black dark circles. It came with instructions on how to properly apply this, too. You're supposed to use the spatula to take some out but, I prefer to just dab my finger on the product since it's thick and I don't want to over apply. Plus, it's still fairly new and filled to the top! With your finger, dab on the inner corner of your eye and then a dab on the outer corner. Then you should blend the product from these corners along the half moon your circles follow. Using these directions, you can't go wrong with it! It does crease if you use it incorrectly and try to apply it over your whole under eye area! I think for best results to apply a regular lightweight concealer under your eyes first and then dab along this area! Great Product, I would highly recommend this!

This concealer covers great, it really is an erase paste, but it settles in to fine lines and creases big time even if you set it with powder. I've tried a few powders, hello flawless, mineral powder and translucent and none help it. I hate that it settles in fine lines as i love the coverage, it makes you look older than you truly are. anyway I do not recommend this product.

I purchased the tiny container of Benefit's Erase Paste on a whim at Ulta's checkout. It was $10 in the 'medium' color. I did some research on it afterwards, and learned that it only came in three colors to begin with. I swatched it on my hand and realized that it was way too pink for my skin. I'm pretty tan and yellow, so it was obvious that the color did not match my skin.

Not only is the coloring a problem with the erase paste, the texture and smell definitely put me off. It was very, very, very thick, as the name may have tipped off. I rubbed it against my fingers to warm it up, like the other reviews suggested, but it was still very thick. The smell was also offputting. It smelled like freshly melted crayons. The smell, coupled with the texture definitely turned me off to this product. I have pretty hardy skin, but I feel like if I used it all the time, it would definitely lead to breakouts. I would not recommend this. I returned it a day after I purchased it.

Perfect. Reflects light to give brighter eyes. Natural coverage. The tub is kind of deep, difficult to take product out

I love this product for using under the eyes on dark circles. It covers and corrects, brightening up the area without looking cake-y like many other concealers I've used. It feels a bit sticky right when you apply but sets quickly and holds up all day. I feel it definitely needs to be set with a light dusting of powder otherwise it will crease. I have small, slightly hooded eyes and use this in the inner corners as well to make my eyes appear bigger and just for that overall "rested" look.

I like the small pot it comes in because it is easy to take with you to work or even travelling. I think it is pricey but worth it because it lasts a long time and you use a tiny amount. The pigmentation is great, medium to full and you can build it up as needed without that gross gunky feel. Looks natural, blends in and meshes with skin and is undetectable (although I suppose that depends on how much you use!).

I have been using this for about 6 months and have no complaints. Would definitely repurchase.

This has been my go-to concealer for about 4 or 5 years now. It kicks MAC Pro Longwear's ass. It's a little pricey in my opinion (28-30 dollars) for that tiny little jar. A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY!! I barely use any under my eyes and WOW it totally covers my dark circles!! I look so well rested and get compliments all the time. It's the creamiest concealer I have. It's very, very pigmented, and slightly thick. Stays on ALL DAY no complaints !!! I'm on my 8th jar now :)
