Benefit Erase Paste

During summer, to my horror, I developed dark circles under my eyes as a result of many terrible night's sleep due to hayfever. Under-eye shadows had never been a problem in the past, but I soon found myself on the search for a product that would eradicate the bags. I'd remembered Benefit Erase Paste had often been mentioned as a solution to this problem so I was keen to try it myself.

Available in 3 shades, I chose medium, an almost salmon coloured shade that counteracts any darkness or shadows. Along with the concealer is a small leaflet outlining how best to apply Erase Paste on different areas of the face, very useful if you're a novice, and a small spatula. The instructions advise scooping out a small amount, placing it on the back of your hand and lightly dabbing along your under eye area with your ring finger.

The paste is creamy and easy to apply with no dragging of the delicate skin under the eye. Although expensive at £18.50, only the smallest amount of product is needed for good coverage, so despite being a dinky sized pot, I can see this product lasting a long time. Now my hayfever has subsided I no longer have dark circles to conceal but I continue to use this to brighten up my eye area. A great product that's worth the money.

Benefit Erase Paste is priced at £18.50 and available from Benefit counters or online


  1. I just included this in my latest post. It's a good under eye concealer but it can be a bit tacky if you don't set it with something. In my opinion Estee Lauder's Maximum Cover foundation is the daddy of concealers!It's incredible and it lasts forever.

  2. I have erase paste and I use it quit often. I think it could be cheaper even though a little goes a long way, and on me, sometimes it gets blotchy out of nothing \:

  3. I have never tried a benefit concealer. I will have a swipe of this when I'm next near a benefit counter as my dark circles as awful in the mornings! x

  4. I've also been searching for a good product to get rid of the dark circles. Thanks for doing this post! :)
