Review: Benefit Erase Paste


I just got my Benefit Erase Paste and tried it out. I'm sick today, so my under-eye circles seem to be a bit worse than usual, which the camera doesn't show as much thanks to my flash, but here's photos anyway.

It seems to work better than my MAC, Boots, Smashbox and Vincent Longo concealers, is very easy to blend but doesn't cover up the dark circles perfectly. I give it 4 stars.

It's not the holy grail of concealers but it's working way better than all my other ones until I find the perfect one. I think I'll try the Philosophy concealer next. __ “Fashion fades, only style remains the same.” —Coco Chanel

Thank you, thank you, thank you for reviewing this. I've been debating whether to shell out cash for this or not. I'm still not sold. Don't get me wrong, it did work on you very nicely but I'm still not sure if this is would be the "holy grail" of concealers. I like that it can work for any part of your face, though. I MIGHT try it some day!

Awesome post. I am curious to try this. I need a bit more help. My CARGO One Base isn't that exciting.

Like I needed another reason to hit the Benefit counter... :) I might test this out as a comparison to Bo-ing as well.

I forgot that I also have Well Rested and it still doesn't cover everything. I even tried layering it over other concealers. Thanks x_juicyfruit! Even though my eyes look droopy from being sick. I've been wanting to try some Laura Mercier stuff too. I've heard good things about a bunch of the products and that new Shy Violette color quad keeps calling my name. :P __ “Fashion fades, only style remains the same.” —Coco Chanel

to dermablend's defense even though it is cakey it is supposed to be super strength concealer and cover up major facial problems. so that is problem the reason behind its consistency. i think my next concealer i try will be laura mercier after i try this erase paste. i almost tried LM a few months ago but the Sephora girl bad mouthed it saying LM is too difficult and takes too much time because of the mixing to get the right shade. i think she had something against LM to be honest. I however love LM and should have stuck with my instinct. It is so pricey though. :(

It looks pretty good, I may try it. I have also tried Dermablend and it's very hard to apply and cakey. Right now I am using Neutrogena 3-in-1 concealer and to my surprise it works rather well. But I am still on the hunt for the holy grail of concealers. Any suggestions???? I should note that I did try BE Well Rested and had no luck with it at all.

You know what I've found to work really well for slight darkness like that!? BE's 'well rested' for eyes. It's awesome stuff!

It looks alright - not perfect, but an improvement. I think I'll skip it. Hope you feel better though!

Well, if you do try Erase Paste, I'd love to know if Boi-ing is better/worse. __ “Fashion fades, only style remains the same.” —Coco Chanel

Wow, I can really tell the difference. Very nice. I have dark eyes there naturally, so I might have to purchase some! Feel better. :)

Looks decent - thanks for the review. I am wondering how it compares to Benefit's Boi-ing! under-eye concealer, though...? (Hope you feel better soon!)
