    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer:

    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.

    DOES ITS JOB

    By MelLovesMakeup

    from San Jose, CA

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer:

    I have oily sensitive skin with some texture.
    If you are looking for a primer to pro long the wear of your make up on definitely give this one a try! It's so easy to get caught up in everything that social media beauty gurus are pushing out it can sometimes be overwhelming to give a primer a try but this one is definitely worth a shot. The stick makes application fast & easy. It has some what of a tacky consistency to really give your foundation something to grab on & adhere to, it definitely pro longs the wear of your makeup. I would suggest to put the primer on in sections as you apply your foundation just because it does dry fast & I have found that if you apply the primer all over then go on with foundation then nightlight & contour you can kind of see where the primer had dried because it grabs the foundation differently. I have repurchased & have this as an option in my kit.

                                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.
