    My cousin spoke so HIGHLY of this product so i went to ulta and bought it,i couldn't wait to use it ,price didn't matter to me as long as it worked as well as my cousin said ... i used it yesterday like the box said three dots underneath the eye and above it , 3 hours later ....creased horribly ,i was so upset especially since i use to use the Mary Kay eye primer and the bottle was small and it was 12 dollars it worked so well and was long lasting but eventually it did crease after 14hrs ,but still that was enough for me.ugh this product was S&!# especially since i paid almost 30 bucks for it , i expected it to work >:/

      I use it for shadow base, brightens my overall look, as you age it seems I have begin to seen a lot of dark around my eyes, this takes that away.

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don't Stray:

        Product is light and easy to apply. Worked perfectly for my very light skin tone and covered better than any concealer I've used yet. I don't know how long the product will last me but daily I am not using much production my eyes with amazing coverage. To apply I put product on my undereye in a V shape and 3 or 4 light dots on my eyelid. I blend with a beauty blender and set with a simple product. Works nicely for my natural makeup routine and stays on all day. Only coins that it wears off a bit in hot weather especially when wearing sunglasses.

                      works terrible as a concealer as it REALLY settles into fine lines... works even worst as primer. product does not help eye shadow adhere to lids at all.

                      Perfect eye shadow primer!

                      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don't Stray:

                      This conceals and creates the perfect base for my eyeshadow! I have oily lids AND a lovely purple vein thing going through my eyelid and this is the only primer that conceals so I can wear sheer light shadows and also combats the oiliness. I've tried the other top eye shadow primers and this is the one I will continue to buy again and again. Also- it lasts forever as a little goes a long way.

                      • Q:

                        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?

                      • 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.
