          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don't Stray Eye Shadow Primer:

          I have super dark circles so I have to wear A Lot of concealer. Plus, I have fine lines and sometimes my eyes get greasy, so I used to end up touching up my concealer several times a day because it would melt away. Now I put this primer on, then thin layers of concealer til it's the right shade, set with a tiny dusting of Undereye Setting Powder and I'm good to go for at least 8 hours. My concealer stays and I don't end up with tons of black streaks from my mascara smearing in the concealer. In the high humidity of FL it's a real must!

            I have really oily eyelids and unfortunately with this product I still crease. Will go back to my bare minerals for this application.
