    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don't Stray:

    This primer is more than that, it acts like a concealer as well. In addition to making my eye shadow stay put until I wash it off, even the dime store brands, it fills in my crow's-feet without emphasizing them and covers up the circles under my eyes. A little goes a long way. Well worth the price.

    I have a lot of trouble getting makeup to stay on and this product did help with eyeshadow, although it did not help eyeliner stay on.

        This is a very good product. I use it around my eyes as a brightener. I use it on my chin and the tip of my nose to keep my foundation in place. I love it!

          Makes me miss F.Y.Eye...

            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don't Stray:

            I used to use Benefit's F.Y.Eye, which I loved - and then they stopped making it. Still, I love Benefit products, so I gave this a try. I've been using this for a while (at least several months), and I'm not impressed. I don't feel like it's my eye shadow or liner last a significant amount of time. (If my liner is still there at the end of the day, it's because it's a gel and difficult to remove to begin with, not because of this.)
            The worst, though, is that it creases all. the. time. I've tried to use it in conjunction with Benefit's Lemon Aid (which is fantastic), and the two together crease terribly - even before I get my eye shadow on. Ugh. F.Y.Eye was perfect. Why ruin a good thing?
            It is easy to apply and this tube has lasted me a while, which are plusses. But it just means that I'm waiting longer to go find something else that I like better.

            If you want to keep your eye shadow in place then this product is for you. I prefer when it was in a pump bottle but it still works great.....

                  I have always had trouble keeping both my eye make-up and eyeliner on all day. With this product the eye shadow and eyeliner are both still on at the end of the day. Especially the lower liner. Very Impressed.

                  I like the applicator that comes with it. I wish the formula was a little thicker, because I have some pretty dark circles under my eyes and oily skin. I was wanting this to extend the wear of my eyeliner and eyeshadow. It's probably a little better than some others I have used, just wished it had done better

                  • Q:

                    I have very oily, aging eyelids. Does this need to be applied over or under make up to keep eyeliner from smudging?

                      A:

                      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.
