Benefit Erase Paste Review

Hey Everyone,
If you've seen my last post which was a haul, you'll know I recently bought up the Erase Paste concealer from Benefit. I've never owned a Benefit Erase Paste before, even though it's been on my wish list for ages. Last  week was not only payday and I also had some time off work, so I finally went out and bought it!
I know Benefit have only just released their brand new Fake Up concealer, and I did have a look at it when I was at the Benefit counter. I swatched both the Erase Paste and Fake Up concealers. Even though the new Fake Up concealer is lovely and I was really tempted to buy it, I decided to go for the Erase Paste instead. Not only has that been on my wish list for longer, but I also preferred the colour of it. I bought the Benefit Erase Paste in the shade medium, which is almost like a salmon colour, and that's the perfect colour for correcting and concealing dark under eye circles.

Like all Benefit products, the packaging of the Benefit Erase Paste is really cute and girly and would look lovely on any dressing table or vanity.
Benefit Erase Paste comes with a small spatula and you get 4.4g of product which is a very generous amount for a high end concealer. Benefit advise using this product by scooping at tiny amount of  Erase Paste out of the pot with the spatula provided and placing it on the back of your hand, then using your ring finger to blend it underneath your eye.
I'm quite messy though and I have a tendency to lose things, so give me a week or so and the spatula will have miraculously disappeared somewhere!
I use the Benefit Erase Paste with my Real Techniques Domed Shadow brush. I lightly dip my brush into the concealer and then gently buff it into my dark under eye circles.
Benefit Erase Paste is very creamy and blends really easily. I would however suggest setting it with a powder to stop it from creasing. I'm currently using the Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder and I find that my concealer lasts all day when I do this.
Benefit Erase Paste 
Here I've used the Benefit Erase Paste so you can see how well it works. I'm not wearing anything else on my eye and the only make up I have on is foundation. I've also not put a filter on or retouched this image so you can see the true effect that Benefit Erase Paste really has.
This product can also be used as a highlighter or to conceal spots and blemishes, but I'm just going to use this as my under eye concealer, which brings me to the only slight negative thing I have to say about Benefit Erase Paste. Like many Benefit products, it only comes in 3 shades and I do wish they would bring out more shades because sometimes it's difficult finding a concealer that matches your skin tone when there are only 3 shades available.
As an under eye concealer however this works great, and I'm really glad that I finally got my hands on one of Benefit's best selling concealers!
What's your favourite concealer to use under your eyes? 
Thank you for reading and till next time,

  2. I have been using Bobbi Browns corrector but this has always appealed to me so I may have to try it one day! :) I completely agree about there not being enough shades - I think it's silly they only have 3 shades in certain products! xx

    2. I've just got a fake up, it probably would work better on people with already hydrated skin. It's really really hydrating, a bit too much for oily skins so I wouldn't recommend it for those with oily skin.

  16. I've just finished my pot of this and whilst it is a good concealer, I did eventually find it sinking into the creases under my eyes :( I've now bought a Mac Pro Longwear one, and seem to be getting on better with that.
    Hope you don't have the same problem with this one.

    1. Ohh that's not happened to me. I'm setting it with the LM powder and that seems to work great. MAC pro longwear is fab too though, and MAC do offer a better colour range xx

  18. I loooove Erase Paste! It is my HG concealer for sure. I also own Boi-ing & Fakeup, and they are both wonderful as well, but I feel like they serve different purposes. However, Fakeup is wonderful layered on top of the Erase Paste, because it keeps your under eye area super moisturized and looking fresh. I definitely recommend it.
