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

      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.

      blends so smoothly, is subs creamy and pretty shade, and creates a beautiful natural look. It can be used for full face makeup since it also helps to keep makeup long lasting and not smudging or creasing.

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

            I swipe it on under my eyes to cover the darkness and on 2 blemishes I have next to my eye, blend it in, and then I don't really need makeup, just some blush for everyday wear. I will put foundation on if I am going someplace special or will be under lights (singing in Choir or Chorus). It goes on easily and smoothly, unlike regular concealer which pulls on the fragile skin under my eyes and tends to cake.

                  Hands down the worst product I've ever purchased at Ulta. My eyeshadow was creased in less than two hours and when I started using it for my concealer, it made my face feel "gummy" and it made no improvements with helping concealer stay on. Never again.

                      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.
