Benefit Erase Paste Brightening Concealer

No spatula, and not super effective
Purchased

I didn't receive a little spatula with this product, so that was disappointing, but I use a brush to apply instead. I don't find this to be a terribly effective concealer - the coverage isn't great for dark circles, what coverage you get doesn't last very long, and it's a bit heavy so it tends to collect inside fine lines. I've definitely used better.

Best Concealer
Purchased

This is a great concealer! Medium is the best shade even for fair skin tones. It really covers dark circles and redness very well!

Excellent coverage
Purchased

This product has excellent coverage and brightens under eye circles. I use every day under my powder. Slightly greasy, however, once powder is applied over, there are no issues.

Meh

Paste is right. This is SO thick that it's difficult to use. I basically love every other Benefit product, so it surprised me that I didn't love this. Swing and a miss for me.

Great for under eye and to hide and little imperfections and stays put all day. It didn't feel heavy at all

The Last Concealer You'll Buy

...and I mean this both literally and figuratively. It lasts FOREVER, and you'll love it so much you can say goodbye to other concealers! Perfect for undereye circles, scars or blemishes. It's heavy, so use a light hand and make sure you blend it well. And then rejoice.

Great Concealer!
Purchased

I have horrible dark circles. While other products will cover, the coverage does not last. The Erase Paste does. I can go all day and not worry about my blemishes or dark circles, at all!

Not worth the money!
Purchased

Yes, this concealer works well. It covers everything very quickly; however, it does not stay in place at all! I much prefer my ELF $3.00 concealer which has almost the same coverage but does not make my face look sticky and damp! Because it is so thick, even when warmed up, it does not look good. Very disappointed.

Great coverage, blends easily.

I ordered this product based on prior reviews and it didn't disappoint! I use it daily and it is great for blemish coverage and under eye concealer. Highly recommended!

Your Experience Probably Won't Be Like Mine...

About a year ago, I was searching for a new concealer, and I tried this one in the lightest shade. It worked well for my skin tone and shade, and at first, it blended in perfectly, as many users have noted here. However, each time I used it, after less than 30 minutes, the pigment melted into an oil-slick patch. Very unattractive. I followed the instructions that came with it, and also watched several YouTube tutorials in order to get an idea of the best way to make it work for my skin. THEN, after just three uses, I started noticing the beginnings of huge, cystic acne under the places where I had used the concealer. I stopped using the stuff immediately, and that's when I decided to look at the ingredients for the first time. At least four (possibly five) different oils are currently in the formula! And the second ingredient on the list: lanolin! OMG, NO THANK YOU. What followed after I returned the concealer after the three uses was two months of nightly serums and daily and weekly masks. I have acne prone skin to begin with, and keeping flare-up free means walking a fine line at all times with a schedule of the above-mentioned masks, serums, and oral medication. Non-comedogenic makeup became a much, much higher priority for me after this disaster. While I know this concealer works well for lots of folks, it destroyed the fine line I have been working on for years, and it took months to recover that lost ground. I do recommend that anyone considering this product read the ingredient list. I am well aware that this is a HG product for many - it just wasn't for me.
