This is a great product. I put it on under foundation or over it - depending on the effect I want. It's very light in texture but amazingly effective for brightening up the eye area and correcting any dark circles. I like to use it on my eyelids as a primer for my eye shadow. The little scoop thing that comes with it is fairly useless and has now disappeared forever (who has the patience to locate that thing?) - however the pot itself is awesome. I just apply it with my finger. A container will last for months.

Really love this product, does a great job of concealing my under eye shadows.
I apply concealer after my foundation.
Start with just a little product and pat gently, the warmth of your finger helps it to blend into your skin.
I then pat in a little more to the darker areas and no more shadows!!
Lasts all day and no creasing, wonderful stuff!

I really do love this product. It gives great coverage, illuminates excellently, versatile. The only complaint I have is the consistency, a bit too thick for me. I discovered early on it cakes, as others have noted as well, so the process of spreading such a small amount can be a little distressing for the fragile undereye skin.
I've heard tales of others using it as a blemish concealer, but every time I've tried to figure out how it became a bit too pink for me.
Overall, yes, I would repurchase. I would also reccomend to a friend, should I have had any that fit the three skintones.

I seriously love this product. It is the best concealer I have ever tried. I have quite dark under-eye circles and vein slightly visible under my left eye. Nothing ever seemed to cover these problems up until I found this product. This concealer cancels out the blue/green/purple tones and leaves my with a much fresher, more awake looking face.
It is very creamy and you only need to use a small bit to get wonderful coverage without any caking. I also love how long this lasts. I set it with a bit of translucent powder and it lasts me all day and for me "all day" usually equals 12+ hours.
It may seem a bit pricey, but you really get a ton of product so I think it is worth it. I've been using my travel sized pot for over 5 months and I still have over half left.
If you have dark circles I would definitely recommend this!!

I have very dark undereye circles (genetics + allergies) and my undereye area has been dry lately. I bought this as a replacement for my forever favorite, the discontinued dior moisturizing. the coverage isn't as good as the dior, and isn't very buildable. It also applies really patchy unless I moisturize right beforehand. It has a somewhat brightening effect. Overall it's OK, but I'm still looking for something better.

This is a must have if you are plagued by under eye circles. I'm super fair skinned to begin with, and I've had allergies my whole life and have developed circles under my eyes that never go away no matter how much sleep I get or water I drink. I've tried so many concealers and they just don't work. They are either the wrong consistency, or have the wrong undertone. Erase Paste is very thick, but still blends well into the delicate under eye skin, and into foundation. It reflects light similar to some foundations which really helps diminish under eye circles as well. It wears really well, and unlike some foundations does not get that dry, cakey, chalky look after a few hours. The price is a bit steep, but I can't take away a lippie for that, some stuff is worth the price.

great for under eyes, not for covering spots, has lasted me ages, a little goes a long way

This is a corrector (it is a pink-melon color) not a typical concealer.
I am currently using MAC Mineralize compact cream foundation - and I 'correct ' and 'conceal' after applying my foundation.
This (and my foundation & concealer) MUST be set with powder or it will slip/creep/move.
This is meant for one thing - those dark circles. It is not meant to be a general purpose concealer - try 'Boing!" for that.

I have dry skin and very dark under eye circles that I try really hard to cover every day. The Erase Paste has peachy/orangey tones that are perfect for counteracting purple eye circles, and it's a thick, creamy consistency which means it won't run or fade too quickly. Although the pot looks small, a little product goes such a long way, so one pot can last me around 6 months! However, the limited shade range means it is tricky to find a perfect match to my skin or foundation. I am currently using the shade #2 Medium, but in winter when I am very pale, it's much too dark. I have also noticed that it is prone to creasing and can look cakey or dry if you apply too much. The spatula that it is sold with is a bit redundant, and application with a finger can sometimes leave more product on your finger than on your face.

Peachy color, never dries fully. Great coverage but it wears off after a few hours and if you add powder to set it you might have some creases...
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Acne-prone, Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
-Mosturizing (doesn't show flakes)
-Very High Coverage
-Easy to apply
-One jar will last over 6 months!!
-Needs to be set with powder to stay
-Needs to be applied with finger
-Can build up bacteria if you don't wash your hands (which you should)
This is the best concealer I've found. It's peachy undertones actually make it look like natural skin color with the high coverage. I also have very dry, but very acne prone skin, so this doesn't break me out while also getting rid of the dry flakiness. Awesome!!! Worth the money because it lasts so long too!!!

This provides good coverage initially, but wears off after a few hours. I love the finish and consistency. It feels very moisturizing; and for someone like me who has dryer skin under my eyes, I can appreciate that. However, within 3-4 hours, it's basically gone. I wish it didn't wear off so quickly. I'm returning this back to Sephora.

Seems like there is a love hate wit this concealer here on the makeupalley reviews but i personally love it. Its got that peachy color instead if just a skin color so it really corrects the dark circles uner you eyes. I always have dark circles under my eyes even if a get a full eight hours of sleep so im always on the hunt for a grest concealer. There are plenty of other good concealer out there but something about this one i love. Maybe its that it corrects with use of color rather than just conceal by putting a thick gross concealer on there... Idk. Its seems kinda thick but id applied lightly it just turns out light and fresh. Gave it four stsrs because it does crease s bit so i have to touch up by patting with my finger throughout the day.
Overall i like it a lot and helps give me that fresh faced wide awake look.

I bought this awhile back and ended up returning it. Here's why..I was on the hunt for a good long lasting concealer to cover up my dark circles but not too much as to tell I was wearing a cake load of it since I wear a little amount of mineral powder foundation. [sally bs]. I swatched this on my hand and it seemed good so I bought it. I applied this first to my eyes. [i didn't use the little spatula it comes with; i don't have that much time to stand there and work around with it]. I didn't like the texture of it when I put it on my eyes. It looked too thick; yet it STILL didn't cover my dark circles. It did a good job of covering up a couple acne scars, but as for dark circles. NADA. It looked too thick combined with my powder. It's gross too to think that you dip your hand in a jar to get out some concealer when you are working it very close to your eye so I put a 1 for packaging quality. Luckily I returned it. It may work for others, but it just didn't cut it for me.

An absolute essential for e , I have been using this concealer for a few years now and could not be without it, this is very heavy duty stuff.
You only need a tiny amount as it goes a long way, a tub will last me around 10 months and I use everyday.
I do find this on the expensive side but I think with this one it's a case of you get what you pay for.

I absolutely love my Erase Paste concealer by Benefit Cosmetics. I have acne-prone, oily skin and using this over my foundation, under powder, makes my skin appear as close to flawless as possible. I wouldn't recommend this concealer for undereye circles because it is so thick and doesnt blend into that thin-skinned area as well. I rated it a 4 overall because it does appear slick on the skin if not set with a powder. I rated the product a 5 in pricing because it is $28 which is very pricey for the amount that you get (although I will say that one container lasts me for about 6 months, even though I use it every day, because a little goes a long way). I gave the packaging a 1 because it comes with a little scoop gadget that I immediately throw away because it is useless and the jar is too small to really use your fingers, so you have to invest in a concealer brush. I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone.

Wow, as the name suggests, this is a paste. Really thick, hard to blend. Definitely covers up everything. Must be very light handed when applying, then tap, blend, tap, blend.

I received a travel sized version of this, in medium, with a BeneFit sampler kit. At first, I HATED it. It was fairly thick, and I'm used to concealers with a more thin consistency. Also, the color was so odd. It was a tad dark for me, but more than anything is just seemed so orange. I tossed in my makeup bag and forgot about it.
I recently dug it out and figured out I better try to make use of it. I can't use this to cover blemishes. The pinkish-orange tint stands out too much against my skin tone. However, I did discover that this is great for the under eye area. I have very slight dark circles, but also my face casts shadows underneath my eyes, so I usually need something to cover them. I normally use a light mouse foundation and dab it there, but this works so much better. It really brightens the area, and the consistency works well against my somewhat dry skin.
My only advice is to apply using your fingers, rather than a brush. I normally use a concealer brush, but it looks unnatural with this product.
Overall, however, I'm glad I found a use for this. I'd definitely recommend this for college students who, like me, don't get enough sleep!

Some people said it's heavy and greasy, while I find it a good texture for undereye circles. I had the sample of a medium color which was a bit too dark for my skintone, bug I like the texture alot and got the lighter shade that fits my skintone so well. It is rare to find a salmon toned concealer which shows very natural under the eye area. I have not used any other concealer for undereye circles since I got this product.

Love this! The texture is very creamy and it's great for moisturizing my dry under eyes. It does settle into fine lines, but I find all concealers do that, so I can't knock off a lippie for that. I usually prep my undereyes with TFSI. I also love that it has peachy-pink undertones that cancel out my blue under eye circles, and it does well brightening up other areas of my face. I usually apply this around the sides of my mouth since I have some darkness there and voila! I look bright and refresh! Lasting power is pretty decent. I can get about 3-4 hours of wear before I start to see creasing, but I usually pat it back in place so it's not big deal for me. A little really does go a long way so the pot should last a while. With that said I don't think it's really expensive for what you get. I would repurchase this over and over.
