      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer:

      You would think this product would be great for the price you pay, but it is difficult to apply correctly. It acts more like a glue stick than anything else. It dries way too quickly, so you have to rush to put your concealer/foundation on over it; if you don't apply fast enough you will have patchy/uneven coverage with your makeup. Oftentimes, it causes my makeup to lift off my face too.

          I use this and the Hello Flawless foundation together. I work 12 hour days at the hospital and my makeup looks as good at 7pm as it did at 7am. It does take practice to get it right, which is why I'm giving it a 4 star. It dries quickly, so I apply to one area, apply foundation, move to next area....it's described as make-up magnet....it's just that!! I love it and I never write reviews!

                        Just gently apply to your face then apply foundation. You will look just as good at 8:00pm as you did at 8:00am when you put on your makeup.

                          This product isn't the easiest to work with, however if done right its great.
                          The trick is to work in pieces. This product dries quickly so start on one side of your face then, work on the other parts of your face. Also, for me, using my fingers worked best.
                          I have combo to dry skin. I seen a lot of negative reviews on this product and thought THIS could help.

                              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.
