          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don't Stray Eye Shadow Primer:

          This is one of my most favorite products. I have dark eyelids and ridiculously dark undereyes and it just looks like I have permanent black eyes. It looks like I haven't slept in weeks even though I sleep 8-9 hours each night.
          But when I put on Stay Don't Stray, it looks like I'm actually getting the amount of sleep that I do sleep each night. I use this in conjunction with concealer most of the time, but if I wanted I could go without concealer because this product is basically a concealer on its own while also doing a really really really great job of keeping eyeshadow place all day. It is magical how great this works. I will definitely be rebuying this for as long as they make it.

              Use it as a concealer under my eyes and to cover redness. That's not the intended purpose, but this works great for me. The medium color matches my skin and works well on dark spots. I've also used it on my eyelids to hold the eye shadow in place.. That's what it is supposed to be used for and it works well.

                  Apply to your bare eyelids, under your makeup, to extend the wear of your eyeliner and eyeshadow and to keep lids matte and crease-free.
