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

    I got a mini as a tester in a huge kit and searched everywhere for it afterwards. I mainly use all around my eyes, on the lid as well. It's never irritates, the color is phenomenal but my favorite thing is you can layer it bc ounces it warms it meshes with your sling WITHOUT looking less concealed. You don't even really need to blend it that much. TOTALLY worth the money and I literally have tried everything

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

    It's a smooth application. It covers up very well. When applying shadows the colors look amazing and also easy to blend out the color and the primer. A little does go a long way, all you really need is one dot on each eye.

          I'm barely learning how to do my own eyeshadow and when I went to the store, one of the associates showed me the difference between urban decay eyeshadow primer and this primer and this product is holy grail. Highly recommend!! Makes your eyeshadow more pigmented!!

          I bought this to compare to Urban Decay's primer. Though it goes on smoothly it left me with creases in my concealer and noticed in take away from my eyeshadow color. My highly pigmented pink shadow looks very tan with this product. I love the Benefit brand but will be switching back to my previous primer

              This product works very well. I had tried an inexpensive eyeshadow base and the eyeshadow will not go on smoothly. This is really a step up and I will buy it again.
