Creases, cakes easily, doesn't cover blemishes well
This concealer has a borderline sticky/moist consistency that NEEDS to be set with a powder. Even when it is set with a powder, it still develops creasing and kind of slips away throughout the day. It doesn't work well with hiding blemishes and is only OK at covering under eyes. Makes it really apparent if you have dry skin around your eyes because it kind of soaks into it and doesn't blend out. I also have almost yellow skin, especially when I get color in the summer and this seems to have a pink undertone that doesn't blend well at all with my skin.
I love this stuff.
I bought this because I have quite dark under eyes (which are partly genetic although they can be better when I am not stressed and deprived of sleep) I went in and the lady matched me very quickly although at the time I had quite a deep tan. It is slightly dark for me now maybe just a tad too dark but still I continue to use this as the coverage is perfect for me. Its a nice formula which hasn't creased on me during wearing and it lasts all day. I have practically finished the pot I bought at the start of the year so it really hasn't taken me long at all and I will be repurchasing this.
great for dry skin
I wouldn't use this on blemishes, but on my under eyes and slight redness around my nose this is perfect. It's verrrry creamy. You need to apply very little as it's extremely pigmented. It lasts a fair amount of time, too. If you don't moisturize beforehand, or if you apply too much, it'll definitely look cakey. I recommend applying it with your finger to warm it up, then blending it out with a fluffy brush like a MAC 224 or something similar.
This was the first piece of make-up I ever bought, and it was brilliant. Considering it was the first time I ever wore make-up, I didn't want to buy something like foundation yet and just wanted to 'try it out'. But this did the job very well, and covered all of my problem areas. Was a bit expensive, but it was definitely worth the money and I would buy it again and again.
Way too thick, cakey, doesn't blend well, doesn't last, bad color selection. Was not impressed at all with this. It's hard to tell if it's full coverage because of it being so cakey and thick. Not ideal for active blemishes because of its thickness. It cakes around pimples, etc.
Not the best concealer out there
Not good for undereye circles bc it settles into fine lines
I noticed that in pictures of me with a flash, I was able to see the concealer spots so that was embarassing
I gave mine away since I barely used it
I'm very light skinned and it's very difficult to find a shade that matches perfectly. This one does! It is a thick formula, but it's a paste and is meant for just dabbing or blotting on the problem areas. If you put a lot it does sometimes appear cakey. It looks best if you already have foundation on, it's not for if you wear a bare face and just want a little coverage. Overall I love this product for my skin.
This product does exactly what it says its supposed to. I'm still not sure how I feel about the thick formulation of this product though. I only use this when there is something I really want to conceal, but I don't really recommend it for every day use due to the fact that anything that isnt applied with a light hand is going to appear cakey and thick.

I read in a magazine that Benefit's Erase Paste was a really good concealer. (I really needed a concealer to hide my cystic acne after using the Merlot peel off mask and Queen Helene mask too often. Prior to that, I rarely ever used makeup to hide uneven skin tones.) When I went to try it at Sephora I thought it was way too thick. After looking next to the Erase Paste, I saw the Boi-ing and quickly sampled it. I purchased two of these and thought it was decent. The concealer itself was okay but it didn't last and accentuated further my cystic acne and dry skin (I was using a strong acne treatment to get rid of zits causing my skin to be red, irritated and dry with flaky skin.) Now that my cystic acne is gone, I would reconsider buying this again.
It does what it's supposed to do.
I have two shades of this concealer which came in the Benefit Look The Best At Everything kit. I dab 01 on my undereye circles and then mix a bit of 01 and 02 to cover any problem areas that I have. It's a nice concealer but I find that it has a dryer texture. I also would make sure you set it with a powder, my undereye circles were still noticable without any powder on because they were a smidge lighter than the rest of my face.
