    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless:

    I was shopping around for make-up for my wedding and came across this product. I LOVED it the moment I applied it. I did not have any makeup on that day just moisturizer and when I applied Stay Flawless! My skin looked AMAZING and clear, no shine and pores appeared smaller. I did not purchase right away I wanted to see how it would look as the day went on. I went the following week to purcahse and this time I applied my spray make-up and it was turly amazing!!

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless:

    I have tried 4 other name brand primers from Ulta. This one works the best and makes my makeup last the longest. I dampen my brush before applying to make it go on a bit easier. Even when I have not used foundation, my blush "sticks." This is my favorite face primer.

        I love Stay Flawless. It is so easy to apply (you just rub the stick over your face). This blends great with my foundation and makes my skin feel so smooth. This product also has super cute packaging! I love the polka dot lid and the font.

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless:

          I bought this to use for everyday because it was recommended in the store for helping control oily skin. It's terrible at it; my skin now feels more oily than before. The primer is also supposed to blend with the foundation, and it doesn't feel like it does. The first thing I noticed about this product is that it actually feels sticky when you apply it. All in all, will never buy again.

                    The product is really thick in the tube but soft and smooth. My makeup stayed on for almost 24 hours! (I fell asleep wearing it and my makeup still looked good the next day!!) Worth the price. So far, it is my fav primer. The stuff is AWESOME!

                    Fantastic Product - Extremely Longwear

                    By laurenC

                    from Fort Worth

                    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless:

                    I have seen some bad and mixed reviews about this project, but don't agree with them. I think the "trick" to using this product is to apply it in sections with your foundation. That way the primer doesn't dry out before you put foundation over it. I use Mac Pro Longwear Foundation and together my makeup lasts 12+ hours with no problems! If you're not sure about spending the money buy the smaller size first. It's definitely worth the money!

                    Obviously everyone's skin is a little different, but mine personally is oily in the T zone and "normal" every where else.

                      Feels a little "thick" when you put it on, just took a couple times to get used to the feeling of it. I apply it over most of my face and neck, don't over do it, and blend for even coverage. Then apply my concealer and foundation. I have never had my foundation stay so well! Wonderful! I live in Texas and it gets hot, sweaty, but it stays!

                          Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless 15-hour primer can be used underneath foundation of any consistency, including both liquid and powder formulas. For best results, allow a few seconds for your primer to "set" after application before proceeding with foundation application.

                          You can absolutely use this product with your CC cream! For best results, apply your CC cream first (since it moisturizes your skin), then apply this product over top. Your CC cream will even help Stay Flawless to glide over your skin more easily!

                          A:

                          Stay Flawless is ideal if your primary concern is to lock in your foundation or tinted moisturizer for long-lasting wear (this product keeps makeup in place for up to 15 hours). POREfessional is ideal if your primary concern is to minimize the appearance of pores for smooth, flawless skin. POREfessional can also be used throughout the day for touch-ups. The two products can be used together in this order: Stay Flawless applied all over the face, followed by POREfessional applied to problem areas.
