So it’s back to reviewing my big box of tricks from Benefit – Confessions of a Concealaholic. Today I will be looking at the small pot of Erase Paste that comes with the set. This is a creamy concealer that comes in three shades light, medium and dark to suit different skin tones.
You can apply using either a brush or your fingers but its generally easier to use your fingers as you can use the warmth of your skin to blend the product in. The general idea is to only apply a small amount to your fingertips so you’re not overloading yourself and that way the product will last longer too.
Dab it on whereever needed such as dark eye circles under the eye, blemishes and to cover fine lines and wrinkles.
The product applies really easily and gives off a light reflective surface that is designed to bounce off light so it looks like you don’t have any imperfections. I am quite aware of the dark circles under my eyes and I’m always trying new things to try and hide them. In light the darkness isn’t as evident and it is a lot less noticeable although its not 100% as no product ever really is.
Overall impression is that skin is a lot lighter and the real imperfection is concealed. I’d give it a rating of 3.5/5.

- Only need to use a small amount at a time so lasts ages even in a small pot
- Easy to use and apply creamy consistency
- Can be used for both blemishes and undereye circles
- Product on its own is generally quite expensive at around £19 a pot so if it’s not the right shade you’ve wasted your money!
Benefit products are available at all large Boots stores, Debenhams and other large department stores. You will also find it widely available online.
Tip – Try before you buy!
