        I don't think this product does much and it doesn't feel that great on your skin (feels greasy). For the price I expected more.

              If you're truly oily, this won't work. But, then again, nothing will except for blotting and reapplying powder occasionally. This isn't any different than any other product I've tried. I'm still oily at the end of the day.

                    I use it daily, works with every foundation, I work long hours as a nurse and don't have time to touch up my combination oily 32 year old skin. Makes pores invisible and I applyit after my moisturizer.

                      I love this product, it's everything you need in a full face makeup primer. I even use this product on my lips, my lipstick stays all day and it gives my lipstick a richer look. Its great to have one primer that is excellent for every area on the face.

                      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.

                        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.

                            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.

                                  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.
