This product makes my prominent bluish undereye circles virtually disappear. My circles are dark and hereditary and nothing will make them invisible but this certainly comes as close as possible. Yes, it's a bit greasy but it blends easily and when set with powder, lasts all day. I place a small amount in the corner of my eye and a small amount on the outside corner and blend the two so that they meet in the middle, just as the instructions say. It works perfectly. The worst of the blue is close to the inner corner and that where I concentrate the Erase Paste the most. The orangey tone of the corrector almost completely neutralizes the bluish tint of the dark circles, making me look like I've had a very good night's sleep. I do one eye, then the other and the difference between the two eyes is striking. The heavy consistency of Erase Paste is necessary to completely conceal the circles. If it was any thinner it wouldn't work as well. I'm so glad I decided to finally try this product. Nothing I've tried has worked as well. I don't even need a skin tone concealer on top because the overall effect, once the blue has been neutralized, is flesh colored. It's strange, but true. If you have bluish circles, I urge you to give this a try. You might be put off by its heaviness but go ahead and try it. You might be pleasantly surprised. I was. I definitely recommend it. If it works for me and my heavy duty circles, it can work for anyone. I promise.

I was so disappointed with this product having read, and watched, such good reviews. Yes, the product is thick and pigmented, but once blended in it simply disappears. In a nutshell this does nothing to cover my dark eye circles.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE...here's why:

1. Creamy texture never dries my under eye area out (even when I forget to apply eye cream).
2. Doesn't sink into my under eye wrinkles (I don't have heaps, as I'm only 32 - but other brands have been known to highlight those babies!)
3. Has never caused a reaction on my very sensitive skin.
4. I only need an itty bitty bit to completely cover any under eye circles meaning it lasts AGES (I'm talking 3 months minimum - which means at $47 it costs under 50 cents a wear - #winning)
5. When I apply this product I look like I have just had a 2 week holiday with 8 hours of perfect sleep all night (seriously!)
6. I have used NUMEROUS concealers/brighteners and none come close to this product.

Only reason I marked it down on packaging, is because I don't think dipping your finger into a little tub is the most hygienic way of packaging this product - would much prefer a pump pack...still not enough to make me stray to any other product!

Skin: Sensitive, Fair-Medium, Neutral

Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Medium

Eyes: Brown

My situation: Fair olive skin tone, between nc20-25. Very dark eye circles, purplish brown

I think this was the first corrector I've tried. I didn't like it at first, but after trying others, this is growing on me. As others have said, color is great, opacity is great (not perfect though), however the freaking formula creases like a mofo. Who would put petroleum in a concealer?? If it was even a moisturizing product, I could deal, but it is greasy without being moisturizing/does nothing for dryness or eczema.

I use the medium color even though I am quite fair. I apply this only to the dark circles, then use a skin colored concealer over top, then set with powder. I'm currently experiencing with ways to make this not crease so much. I use prolongwear concealer over top with setting powder and that does a decent job of locking it in place, although there is still creasing.

This would be a 5 star product if they could make it less greasy.

I use this product for my under eye dark circles. It does the job but it is a difficult product. If you warm it before use, you will have better results.

This is a very thick concealer. I didn't purchase it for under eye circles or under eye discoloration. It is way too thick and greasy for that area for my personal taste. I use it for covering my melasma on my cheekbones. I was initially scared of the orangy pink color and thought that it would make me look like a clown or make the melasma more obvious, but it doesn't! While it is very thick, that texture is necessary for covering up my discolorations. The best tips I can give someone that wants to try this product is that it must be set with a powder or it will slide right off your face and use it only in the areas that are discolored. Otherwise you will look horrible. I initially tried to apply/blend with a brush, but found that a finger tap works better. Pros: covers heavy discoloration like a dream, lasts all day if set with a powder, the tiny tub lasts forever, no heavy obnoxious scent, easily blendable with a finger on flatter areas (cheekbones, forehead) does not break me out. Cons: expensive, cannot be used anywhere but on purple, blue or grayish- brown discoloration (not good for covering acne or redness) too thick and greasy for under eye, will crease even if set with powder, not recommended for areas of the face that get a lot of movement as it will settle in fine lines.

I have fair skin but medium works for me due to salmon deletes blue. The color is not the problem. The problem is that this concealer is greasy. It creases more than any other concealers I have. It would not be acceptable to use this without setting it with a powder. I have to hand it to benefit for labeling exactly what it is, a paste. Thick and unbledable.

Bought this concealer because of good reviews online and because of it's salmony colour which was supposed to help cover dark circles. This concealer is really creamy and is easy to apply and blend. BUT I think it is a bit too creamy and sort of slides off during the day. Mid day my dark circles reappear and if I apply some more of this concealer it become cakey. Maybe because I have oily skin the concealer doesn't wear as well as on others. The packaging is also annoying as it is hard to dip my finger into the jar without getting concealer under my nails, not to mention unsanitary.

I heard a lot of people raving about it so I decided to check it out in sephora and I loved it in the store, it was brightening and looked like it had a ton of coverage. It was pretty expensive so I had high hopes and I defiantly gave this a good test before I came up with my opinion. The one main thing that turn me off from this product is that is DOES NOT SET. I put this under my eyes before school and I was watching a video in class shortly after lunch, I was resting my head on my hand. I looked at my hand and the concealer was all over my hand not to mention it feels heavy and sticky on my skin. It's not for me but it could work for someone else just that one thing made me stop useing this.

When the sales associate showed me the pinkish tub of Erase Paste, I really didn't think it would work for the purple crescents I have under my eyes thanks to genes and allergies, but it does! A product I didn't have to return and just bought again?! Even stranger, I have light-olive skin that is warm with yellow undertones and steer clear of anything pink, so how this works I do not know, but I think it's magic.

As for picking the shade, I was certain I'd need the lightest (#1) as I tend to have that sickly-olive look per some, but not so according to the sales associate who was right, of course. I think the medium shade (#2) is for you unless you:
A) Have anything darker than my skin tone or something similar and probably need #3.
B) Are the type who is very fair and prone to sunburns and probably need #1.

It is thick, hence being called a paste, but the little tub has lasted over a year so no need to overdue it--a couple dabs with your finger or whatever tool you prefer is all you need. I do have dry skin due to rosacea, especially under my eyes, and need to apply this product over a light moisturizer, but then it blends quite well and it doesn't blend away like most concealers. I believe it stays put, but I have to use a lot of eye drops throughout the day and they spill and then I'm wiping under my eyes and there goes my Erase Paste, but I don't think that would happen to most people and if need be, they sell a teeny size tub of the product to throw in your purse if the normal size is too big, but it's just fine for me. I haven't noticed an issue with it settling in wrinkles, but I have bubbly-shaped eyes so my under eye circles are below a little puff I get when I smile if that makes any sense at all.

I do think Erase Paste is best suited to erase under eye circles as I've tried using it to cover up small, rosacea blemishes and I really need a straight concealer that matches my skin for that job. And while everyone has different allergies, I'm highly allergic to almost all makeup and with a long history of eczema under my eyes, I can't believe this doesn't cause it! It's a keeper for me and I don't have to look like Uncle Fester anymore like my brother does.
