Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless:

I was so excited to buy this. I always tested it on my hands in the store and found it always felt nice. After buying it I used it with different foundations to see how it worked with different types, but I found it feels a bit wet or sticky for a while until it dries. It really does hold my foundation amazingly though and keeps makeup breakdown to a minimum even in humidity and hot weather. I've spent a night dancing away and still had less makeup breakdown then I would've without it.

A Clumpy Mess!

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless:

    When I first started using this primer it was great! I noticed that my make up was staying on all day. Then as a few days passed i noticed once I put it on, then put my foundation on, my foundation was sliding all over the place and would get clumped together! I looked like a clown! If you even scratched your face your foundation would just clump together. I usually use a sponge that makes my foundation look flawless, but because of this primer it wasn't happening. I am so disappointed cause it is long wearing, but you just end up looking like a clown, and it made me almost wish it wasn't long wearing so those clumps would just disappear.

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless:

        This primer was suggested to me by a friend that works for Ulta. I love Benefit products, but this one just fell flat. It felt as if I had glue on my face and made my foundation go on very streaky. Unfortunately, I will be returning this product.

          This primer is great! It doesn't fill in every acne scar, but it definitely keeps my makeup on all day with little oil. It has not caused any breakouts on my sensitive but oily skin and I am so thankful for that.

                    This is the easiest primer I have used . It makes the powder foundation slide on smoothly and evenly. I swipe it across my face and smooth it out and then apply the powder. Easy as that !

                          I love this stuff! I have combination skin and it does a super job keeping my foundation where it belongs. My face gets oily after a while, but I can last about 8 hours without getting shiny.

                            I like to use a cc cream under my foundation. I know cc cream can be used as a primer, so if i use the Stay flawless would i put it under my cc cream? Or would i stop using the cc cream and replace it with the Stay flawless?

                              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!

                              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.
