    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.

          Set With Powder

          By Benefit Eye Shadow Primer

          from Frederick, MD

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

          The first couple of times I used this product I was disappointed. I was using it alone on my eyelids to even out the color and make it look the same as my face make up. I have very oily lids and this would settle into my crease about an hour to two hours after putting it on. I found an eyeshadow shade that was the same color and started putting that on top and it made all the difference! Set with powder. I also use it on my nose before putting foundation on and it seems to help my foundation stay on my nose better.

                    my best friend really loves this product, my only problem is how thick it is, it's kind of hard to smooth out. its perfect use would be cutting the crease with it for putting a light glitter shade over. i prefer using the boing concealer for a primer
