      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer:

      This product was so sticky and even after trying different tricks and techniques I NEVER could get this to work. I tried it on 2 separate occasions and never could get it to work for me. I am not a newbie to makeup, primers included. I Have tried dozens. By far this was the worst.

                      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.

                            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.
