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

      It didn't really do anything it was supposed to do. My eyeshadow wore of and creased by the end of the day. I was disappointed because I usually really like Benefit products.

      I returned it and went back to the Smashbox 24hr primer. That is a great product and works really well.

            I have tried many shadow priners, and this one actually works. It is slightly pigmented but will not interfere with your eye shadow colors. It has not prevented creasing on my oily, mature eye lids.

                    I bought this product to aid in keeping eyeliner on my lower lash line. Did not work well- liner was a smear by the end of the day. Shadow on upper lid creased as if no product had been applied. Returned.
