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

      I have used this product ever since I started purchasing high-end cosmetics 3 years ago, and I've never even thought about trying another eye primer. I mainly use this product as an around-the-eye concealer, as I don't usually include eyeliner or eyeshadow in my daily makeup routine. If you're looking for something to cover up those dark under-eye circles, look no further. This primer blends brilliantly (I use it with Benefit's Boiing concealer and Pur's Mineral Powder) to create my look. In addition, when I do wear eyeliner, eyeshadow, or do a brow highlight, it helps those things stay on all day or all night long!
