          I Purchased it for the purpose of keeping my eye shadow & liner in place. It has worked great for evening out skin tone all over, prior to applying other products. I love it!

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don't Stray:

          I purchased this product because i could not find Ulta's version, in witch i have used before. I normally do not pay much for makeup so I was very excited to get this product. I tend to have oily eye lids and eyeshadow has always creased on me, and it did so w/this product as well. I thought maybe I applied it wrong and so i re-read the directions and gave it another try and it still did not last all day and my eyeshadow creased. Because I paid much more than I would have for the eye shadow primer that I tried before, I am disappointed. I will not say wether i recommend it or do not recommend it because it could be because of my skin that it did not work for me....

                This is EXACTLY what I've been looking for. I use it daily under my normal eye concealer and it truly works wonders. I used find that my eyeshadow was no longer visible by lunch time each day. Now, When I get home from 9 hours of work, I can still see it on my eyes, just as vibrantly as I did when I left the house that morning. It takes 2 second to apply and gently rub in all around the eye area and totally prevents any need to reapply my under eye concealer or eyeshadow. It is an easy and definitely required new part of my morning routine. Love Love, Love It!!

                        I do not recommend because it does not dry leaving the eye shadow to crease - exactly what the product is supposed to cure. It did not work with my skin type.

                          I wear winged gel eyeliner everyday and I'm looking for a primer that will keep it from sliding off mid-day. Will this work as well with gel liner as it would with shadows?

                          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.
