VERY DISAPPOINTED

By Hails

from Portland Oregon

Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless:

I got this product in the Flawless Four pack and I'm glad I tried it in the pack before buying the full product. This primer emediately makes my face feel dry. After applying I put the liquid foundation on like it says and the primer doesn't allow the foundation to blend and absorb into the skin. It ends up looking chalky. And I know it's not the foundation because when I don't use the primer this doesn't happen. Will never get this product again and wouldn't suggest to anyone.

Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless:

After years of searching for the perfect long lasting foundation, I have finally found the solution. Stay Flawless is not only AMAZING, but does exactly what it promises! Stay Flawless goes on lightly and evenly and blends perfectly over my moisturizer and under-eye concealer. I then follow with my Bare Minerals Ready Foundation, which brushes on perfectly smooth. And while others have said it makes their foundation hard to blend, I have not had that issue at all. Stay Flawless gives the perfect amount of 'grip' I have been searching for to keep my makeup not only looking freshly applied, but maintaining the coverage I need from morning to night. Great job Benefit!!

Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless:

I really like this product but it's a little pricy for a primer that doesn't actually stay on all day. Over all it is a good product and I would recommend it to a friend, but it doesn't stay on for 15 hours.

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless:

    I glide this on underneath my bb cream in the summer and foundation in the winter. I can tell that it's really smooth when I apply bb cream. I really like this in the summer because your makeup won't melt off. It's great under heavy foundation also because it keeps it looking great from morning until evening.

                  I love this primer. I use about 1/4 of the makeup than I used to before using the primer. Seems to make my foundation last longer throughout the day. I will continue to use this product

                    Bought this in a benefit package deal. It takes a try or two to learn how to apply it right. Has to be applied in sections because it has a narrow window of opportunity for application. When it cools, you know you're ready to apply foundation. If you miss the window, nothing sticks on top of it. That being said, if I do it right, it's moisturizing and keeps my makeup from moving. It's lightweight and doesn't bother my skin.

                    This is a good primer, but on the pricey side. I have combination skin, and tends to get oilier during the day. This primer will work for awhile; feels good on the face. Just would not go as far to say it lasts 15 hours. Maybe six.

                      I was shopping around for make-up for my wedding and came across this product. I LOVED it the moment I applied it. I did not have any makeup on that day just moisturizer and when I applied Stay Flawless! My skin looked AMAZING and clear, no shine and pores appeared smaller. I did not purchase right away I wanted to see how it would look as the day went on. I went the following week to purcahse and this time I applied my spray make-up and it was turly amazing!!

                          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.

                          You can absolutely use this product with your CC cream! For best results, apply your CC cream first (since it moisturizes your skin), then apply this product over top. Your CC cream will even help Stay Flawless to glide over your skin more easily!

                          A:

                          Stay Flawless is ideal if your primary concern is to lock in your foundation or tinted moisturizer for long-lasting wear (this product keeps makeup in place for up to 15 hours). POREfessional is ideal if your primary concern is to minimize the appearance of pores for smooth, flawless skin. POREfessional can also be used throughout the day for touch-ups. The two products can be used together in this order: Stay Flawless applied all over the face, followed by POREfessional applied to problem areas.
