          Has worked really well for me just need to use a lighter hand with the darker eye shadows since the pigment seems to stay really well even on the cheaper eye shadow.

            I love this product. Goes on smoothly. Blends easily. Conceals dark eyes. I have oily eyelids & this keeps my eyeshadow from creasing or smudging. I set my make up with Urban Decays De-Slick as well & require maybe 2 touch ups a day! Highly recommend.

              I struggle with oily eyelids. My eye shadow just doesn't stay on and it always just ends up in the crease of my eyelid. I have tried many eye shadow primers. I like this one the best so far.

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

                  I bought this product to make sure the eyeliner will "stick" or last most of the day. I was so wrong to trust the online "positive" comments. Not only it did not help the eyeliner stay on it actually "helped" it smudge all over the eyelids. I will return it and never purchase again.
