        I tried this because of all the "great" reviews and I wanted something to help my make up stay put because I am a little oily. I tried it twice and had to wash it off both times because it felt horrible on my face , almost like a glue stick . It didn't blend well at all and felt awful on my face . I was really disappointed with this product , especially since I normally like Benefit products . I'm glad it works for other people, but I just didn't like it :(

            Stay Flawlesss primer actually blended horribly with my foundation. Immediately while applying my foundation, I noticed everything starting to clump together and crease. This product actually dried out my skin and I had to wash my face and go without the primer. I was actually really excited for this product, but will try something else.

                I wanted to use this as a primer underneath my concealer and powder cover. I was having issues with my concealer creasing towards the end of the day and clumping at the creases of my eyes. It did not blend well at all even with other Benefit products I was using. It had a sticky texture when I applied it on. Short story- I returned the product.

                              Hi gorgeous! It really depends on how often you use it and how much you use. I would say that if used daily, it can last 4 to 5 months give or take. Our unopened products typically have a shelf life of 36 months.

                              Hi gorgeous!

                              Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer locks on foundation for 15 hours. If you're looking for a primer to wear solo, we recommend the POREfessional! This face primer quickly minimizes he appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin and can be worn alone, under or over makeup. The translucent, oil-free formula complements all skintones and helps makeup stay put.

                              You can find the POREfessional here at ULTA: http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod2290003

                              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.

                            Does it work with powder foundation or does only have to be liquid foundation?

                              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.
