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

      I've been buying this product for years. I've tried alternative products that are cheaper but it definitely does not work as well as Stay Don't Stray. It's pricey but worth it in the long run. My eyeshadow lasts all day.

          I have a difficult time with eye make up. Shadows simply wear away before the end of the day. I have tried several products of this kind, all saying they will keep your eye shadow in place all day long. None of them work for me. This product creased on my lids and simply did not keep my shadow on.

                I bought this and used it right away. It does not stay on long. It creases up. Worse product by Benefit.

                    I wear winged gel eyeliner everyday and I'm looking for a primer that will keep it from sliding off mid-day. Will this work as well with gel liner as it would with shadows?
