This dual-action power primer works 360 degrees around the eyes to make concealers AND eye shadows STAY PUT. Concealers don't crease, eye shadows stay vibrant & true. Contains sodium hyaluronate known to hydrate and vitamins C & E known to help fight signs of aging.

Features a "dip & dab" wand for easier application. Just a dab'll do ya!
Apply 3 tiny dots under your eyes & blend. Next apply 3 dots on eyelids & blend. Let set, then apply concealers & eye shadows as usual.

Beauty tip: Wear it alone to help even out eyelid discoloration & under eye circles...it's perfect for the no-makeup look.

      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.
