        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer:

        I am a make up freak! I love everything and anything to do with makeup so I have had experience with many different brands. This primer in particular is good for long lasting makeup if you're going out, to a concert etc. (ONLY if you were planning on wearing one coat of liquid foundation) However, since I am such a make up person I wear a full face of foundation, concealer, cream bronzer and translucent powder when I go out. This primer sticks to the first layer of foundation and repeals the rest leaving quite a messy finish. If you are looking for a primer for one layer of foundation then I recommend breaking your fave up into fourths and applying your foundation directly after applyin the primer to avoid any issues.

                      Hi gorgeous! It really depends on how often you use it and how much you use. I would say that if used daily, it can last 4 to 5 months give or take. Our unopened products typically have a shelf life of 36 months.

                      Hi gorgeous!

                      Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer locks on foundation for 15 hours. If you're looking for a primer to wear solo, we recommend the POREfessional! This face primer quickly minimizes he appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin and can be worn alone, under or over makeup. The translucent, oil-free formula complements all skintones and helps makeup stay put.

                      You can find the POREfessional here at ULTA: http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod2290003

                      Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless 15-hour primer can be used underneath foundation of any consistency, including both liquid and powder formulas. For best results, allow a few seconds for your primer to "set" after application before proceeding with foundation application.
