I loved the good coverage, brightening effect around undereyes and nose, and this was so creamy and easy to apply. Boing, the new version of this product is not the same - it does not provide the same intensity of coverage or brightening shade. Anyone know where I can find a product like this one again? Thanks!

I think they call this Boiiing! now, but it's the same consistency and product. The consistency is very thick and seems to apply well, but you need a beauty blender or small makeup brush to get it where you need it most. Covers dark circles well, seems to cover other areas like acne scars and discoloration well in general. Took off a lippie because it does need to be touched up, this is not a long-wearing formula. However, since I discovered "baking" my face, it seems to stay better once anchored with setting powder and finishing spray. The packaging, as with all Benefit products is cute and you only need a small amount for most areas you want to cover. Would repurchase.

I bought this a few years back and still have it. It's a tiny jar, yet a little goes a long way so I still have plenty left. The only one little thing about the concealer I have a problem with is that it's a bit too warm toned for my cool skin - but I still give it 5 stars, since the quality itself is fine. So I'm not sure if I'll repurchase for this reason, but I'm still happy with the formula.

I am literally a concealer junkie. I have bought EVERYTHING based on reviews on MakeupAlley. I think it is a totally subjective process - based on your skin type, coloring, and skin prep. You do have to try many products before you figure it out. My eye prep has used every eye cream and I always go back to Burt's Bees ResQ to prep eye area. I put it on as early in the morning to let it set in. Other eye creams leave residue and mix with concealer when I try to blend. Erase Paste does not crease nor have a consistency issue when trying to blend. I normally put it on, let it melt, then blend with my light tinted moisturizer/powder to foundation. it definitely has staying power but I don't think coverage is that great. Would love to find a heavier conceal that blends as well as this product.

I got a free & ample sample at Sephora. Shade #2-Medium is a peachy-nude tone with no scent. This sample is still only halfway gone. A little goes a long way. Its a thick and creamy concealer and does a great job for medium to full coverage. It comes in a jar so some might not like that. The shade #2 is a bit too light for me to use as a spot concealer on blemishes. I have a Cle de Peu sample in Beige for that. After a while, this concealer tends to get too draggy on my under eyes and it takes more to blend it in. I used to use my fingers at first but then switched to a Beauty Blender. I'm in my mid 40's with a few fine lines. I've moved on to the NARS Creamy concealer as of yesterday. I may still use Erase Paste on an occasion where I'm just running errands or maybe to the gym if I need some coveage under my eyes. I believe this would be great on younger skin.

This product has been renamed Brightening Concealer but it is same product as Erase Paste. The Medium shade is a great corrector for dark circles (it is a peachy pink) while still looking natural and not weird like a lot of salmony/peachy correctors can. I apply with a damp beauty blender and it is flawless. Very moisturizing and great on my dry, mature skin. I've repurchased several times. I learned about this product from EmilyNoel83 on YT and she has swatches on her channel.

Not the best concealer ever, but it covers dark circles well when applied before your "regular" concealer. Careful with the application, as you only need a tiny bit of product.

I purchased this to use it as a colour corrector beneath makeup but unfortunately it's just too thick! It is very pigmented yes but it has such a moist slip to it that it's almost impossible to layer anything on top of it (let alone concealer or setting powder) Will not be repurchasing.

This is a wonderful dark circle neutralizer. I have considerably dark circles (kind of red / purple) and I have tried the Erase Paste (in fair and medium) and Bobbi Brown corrector (in bisque). Both are quite similar, the biggest difference is in consistence / texture. While the Bobbi Brown Corrector is a bit more difficult to spread, the Erase Paste is smoother, pasty and spreads easily, it's more emolient and for my dry under eye area it's better than the Bobbi Brown one. The Shade Bisque (BB) and Medium (Benefit) are dupes. You don't need much of this product, a little definitely goes a loooong way. It's a pasty product, so obviouly it's gonna crease (especially if you apply too much) and you have to set it with powder. For my skin tone (MAC NC10, NC15) I can get away using the shade Fair alone. If I use the shade Medium, I need to mix it with a light concealer because alone it does look pink / salmon. Bear in mind that these correctors are REALLY pigmented, so apply only a little bit and only where your dark circles are, avoid the area right under your eyes where the fine lines are, that's where it's gonna crease and emphasize wrinkles.

I don't think it's a good product for people with oily under eye area because it's quite creamy.
