    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!!

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

    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.

          I use it as an eye shadow and concealer primer.
          I find that shadow still creases as the day goes on. Not their best product.

              It's so easy to use and helps eyeshadow stay on til you take it off. I used it for wedding makeup which means I had perfect eyeshadow from 6am til I got home and took it off at midnight

                    Apply to your bare eyelids, under your makeup, to extend the wear of your eyeliner and eyeshadow and to keep lids matte and crease-free.
