    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don't Stray:

    I use this on my eye lids and around the outer eye to cover up redness from Latisse. It's magic and stays all day. It's just liquid enough to spread easily and looks natural. I follow it up with a dusting of Tarte Smooth Operator. STAY never cakes up either ~! Fab.

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don't Stray:

      I have been searching for something for my dark under eye circles and this is it. I went in to Ulta specifically to pick up Erase Paste but after talking to the lady at the Benefit counter she suggested this. I was apprehensive since it is not described as a concealer but I bought it anyway. I am so glad I did. It works great as a primer and really helps my eye shadow stay put all day. But, what I am most excited about is the great coverage it gives under my eyes. I am obviously using more than I would as just a primer but it does not cake, dries matte and stays put.

        I really like this under eyeshadow. I also put it on over discolorations on my skin and then put concealer over it.

          This is a really great primer. It evens out color of my lids and makes my eyeshadow stay all day. It blends easily with a tapping motion. I have tried a few other primers but this one is the best so far.

            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don't Stray:

            I have EXTREMELY oily skin, so primer is a must as my eye shadow all heads to the crease of my lids half way through my day. This product worked better than no primer, but after 10 hours I still had creases. Everything stays put with Smashbox lid primer. Amazingly my eye shadow looks great 15+ hours later.

              I loved this product. I have highly sensitive skin and this product worked wonderful. However, the last two purchased were all dry with hardly any product left. I finally took the second one back to the store. I traded it for another product which I am sensitive to. Miss my Benefit!!! What happened?

                        I love that when applied, you can feel it setting. The natural pigmentation is great. It covers up any discoloration. Best of all my eyeshadow lasts all day. I have tried a few primers before. This one is the best so far.

                          This product works as both a concealer and primer.
                          Just dot around eyelid and under eyes and blend.

                            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.
