If you have had a child, you have had dark circles under your eyes. It’s like a rite of passage. And if you are “blessed” with my kind of genetics, you still have those shadows long after your little one is sleeping through the night. Enter Erase Paste from Benefit. Through the years, I have tried countless brands and types of under eye concealer—lipstick-esque applications, liquid, mousse-like fluffy stuff, the list goes on. It’s always either too yellow, too thick, doesn’t blend well, there’s always something. Having dealt with dark under eye circles my whole life, I knew what I was in for with parenthood (they could only get worse); so when I read a recommendation for Erase Paste on a parenting blog just before my daughter was born, I figured I’d give it a shot- who better to recommend an under eye concealer than a new mom, really?
Well I loved it! It helped cover the dark circles without looking like I was using concealer, and it was really easy to work with. It also really brightens my entire eye area. I use it everyday so I don’t look like a zombie. It’s a little pricey ($26 for the small pot), but I’ve had it a year now (again, using it daily), and I still have plenty left. Bottom line, if you’re trying to banish dark circles, you need to try this stuff!
