    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don't Stray Eyeshadow Primer:

    I Previously used tart 360 clean slate primer. Loved it, but it was recently discontinued. I was recommended to give this one a try, but it did not work for me. After a few hours, eyeshadow was faded into nothing. I returned it for Smashbox primer, which seems to work well!

      This product is great for eye shadow. Also can be used as a base for concealer. However my concealer still creases and the outer corners of my eyes STILL smudge! Does not make outer corners bullet proof.

                  I use it as a base for shadow and for under eye concealer. It works well for those things but I didn't get the same results with blending eye shadow that the salesperson did.
