Apply 3 tiny dots under your eyes & blend. Next apply 3 dots on eyelids & blend. Let set, then apply concealers & eye shadows as usual.

    This product is just ok - it creased at the end of the day and my eyeshadow (urban decay) did not stay on. I was disappointed because it was highly recommended by the gal at the store.

      Sorry, Urban Decay. Although you are my absolute FAVORITE make-up, THIS eyelid primer beats yours. It's not "creamy", so it doesn't budge all DAY!!!

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don't Stray Eyeshadow Primer:

      I have very oily, very fair skin and have a problem getting foundation and concealer to stay on the bridge and tip of my nose (even while I am initially applying it, it refuses to stick!). I had never seen a product specifically for getting concealer to stay (though I understand this can function as an eyeshadow primer as well) so I picked up a sample of it. I can't attest to its effectiveness for eyeshadow but this is the only product I have found so far that gets foundation and concealer to adhere to my nose and stay there! Unfortunately when used under my undereye concealer I did notice that it settled into some fine lines/wrinkles but overall I am very pleased with its performance. I plan on picking up the full-sized product very soon.

              Use it under foundation for extra cover for spits, rosasea or just to make anything you put on top of it STAY put.

                I've been using this product since it first came out. I've tried others, but this is my go-to primer now. It keeps my shadow from creasing and disappearing. I've told so many of my friends about it, that they all use it now.
