    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don't Stray:

    I have always had trouble keeping both my eye make-up and eyeliner on all day. With this product the eye shadow and eyeliner are both still on at the end of the day. Especially the lower liner. Very Impressed.

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don't Stray:

    I like the applicator that comes with it. I wish the formula was a little thicker, because I have some pretty dark circles under my eyes and oily skin. I was wanting this to extend the wear of my eyeliner and eyeshadow. It's probably a little better than some others I have used, just wished it had done better

                  I use this on my eye lids and around the outer eye to cover up redness from Latisse. It's magic and stays all day. It's just liquid enough to spread easily and looks natural. I follow it up with a dusting of Tarte Smooth Operator. STAY never cakes up either ~! Fab.

                    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don't Stray:

                    I have been searching for something for my dark under eye circles and this is it. I went in to Ulta specifically to pick up Erase Paste but after talking to the lady at the Benefit counter she suggested this. I was apprehensive since it is not described as a concealer but I bought it anyway. I am so glad I did. It works great as a primer and really helps my eye shadow stay put all day. But, what I am most excited about is the great coverage it gives under my eyes. I am obviously using more than I would as just a primer but it does not cake, dries matte and stays put.

                      I love how easy the application is...don't have to use a finger to get it on your eye area. I use this every day and I don't have to re apply my eye shadow again that day unless it is super humid outside. love love love it.

                      • Q:

                        I have very oily, aging eyelids. Does this need to be applied over or under make up to keep eyeliner from smudging?

                          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.
