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

      I had this recommended to me by an Ulta employee because I wasn't happy with the Urban Decay Eden that I'd been using. This is less heavy, blends better, and keeps both eye shadow and my concealer in place all day, while adding just enough coverage without looking unnatural. I'll buy it again.

                  I have been using this product for about 4 years. I don't do my makeup without it. I use it to carve out my brows then blend into my whole lid as an eyeshadow base. It makes your eyeshadow more vibrant, last longer and easier to blend. It never creases on my lid but when I tried it under my eye it emphasized my fine lines so I only use it on my lid.

                  I dont like this primer. it doesn't really make my eyeshadow pop like the urban decay one. it creases and doesn't like more that 3-4 hours. won't buy again. maybe ill use as concealer haven't really tried yet.

                    so my skin is super dry but my lids are super oily.... it's tough finding a good eyelid primer. unfortunately, this one is another checked off the list of primers that just DON'T work. my eyelids were creasing before i even left the house. very disappointed.
