Most Helpful Critical Review Not a fan
I spoke to one of the women on the floor and asked for a primer that would be good for greasy lids after my concealer stopped doing the trick. She recommended this, though I was skeptical because it seemed like she only recommended it because it's what she was standing closest too. The first time I used it my eye shadow was majorly creased two hours later. I made sure to reread the instructions and apply exactly how they said the second time but still major creasing. I'm definitely going to return it.
Reviewed by 1233 customers One of my favorite Benefit products!

I have used the Stay Don't Stray for years and love it! I have oily eyelids and every eyeliner I've ever used smudges onto my lids without using this primer. I also love it as a light coverage under eye concealer. It is designed as a shadow primer and works great for that as well! Eyeshadow appears freshly applied even 12 hours later! Overall an incredible product.
Great for dry and/or mature eyelids!

I love Urban Decay's original eye primer but I wanted a matte look on my eyelids and something to even out the skin tone. I tried Urban Decay's eye primer in Eden (it has a slight tan color) and it emphasized the dryness and creases on my eyelids; it was a terrible product for me. I read the reviews for the Benefit Stay Don't Stray and took a chance. I absolutely love it! It has a creamy texture, dries fairly quickly and gives a nice, smooth canvas to apply my
eyeshadow. No dry lines or flaking of dry skin. I removed one star because it has only one shade for lighter skin tones. I feel like people with darker skin tones are missing out if they are looking for a product with these benefits; it should be offered in a variety of skin tone colors.
I can't live without this

I love this product, I'm a personal trainer, I'm able to use this daily without looking like I gave too much make up on
Eyeshadow Still Runs
Abi from Westminster, CO
I wanted to try something new because Urban Decays eyeshadow primer also ran but this one is even worse. I didn't even have eyeliner at the end of the day. It would've been better to not even use it at this point. Will give it props on my under eyes
Works perfectly to keep eyeshadow in place
JC from CT
As I am getting older I have more creases on my eyelids. This stops by eyeshadow from creasing. I love it!
Glttrbaby from Maine
I use it for concealer in various spots all over my face. Works great and definitely stays!!! Great for prolonging a look!
Sugarlandfan from Lodi. Ca
I bought this in hopes that I could get my eyes to stop creasing. let me tell you it did just that!! I put 3 dots on my eyelids and blended, then I put on my regular eyelid concealer. I will buy this until they stop making it.
Long lasting eyeshadow!
Eli from Miami
Another great recommendation from the Ulta staff! I've just started doing my eyes and using eye makeup as something new to learn during quarantine. This primer was easy to apply and had my eye shadow on and unmoving from morning to night, through several shopping stops in Miami heat. Definitely recommend.
Did not work at all for me. Am returning it.
Kat from Stuart Fl

The BEST eye primer
Nina from Champaign, IL
I wear minimal makeup, but this is one product that is my go-to. You can dab it under your eyes as a concealer (depending on your skin tone), and also on your eyelids to keep your eyeshadow in place. I don't even wear eyeshadow, I just wear this to even out the thin skin of my eyelids. It's a perfect neutral for fair to medium skin. I'm not sure if it comes in other shades for darker skin tones, but it would be a shame if it didn't.
Absolute must-have, especially for minimal makeup wearers like me.
Can't live without this

I use this for under my eyes to cover up dark circles. Works great!
I pray they NEVER discontinue this
Katie from Philadelphia
I've use this product for over five years don't even know when I started using it. When they are out of it I'm sad. It lasted very long time so I don't keep one in back up. I hope they never stop making it.
Best one I've tried!
SAR from Green Bay WI
Due to hot flashes I am often warm and my eye shadow gets runny. This product helps it not run.
Have been buying this for years!
Libby from Scottsdale
This is the best lid concealer there is. Will not crease and gives a beautiful canvas for eye shadow. Can also use it as under eye concealer. The best!
Great product I've been purchasing this for several years.
AMG from Grand Blanc Michigan
Great product. I've been purchasing this for several years Because it works on my eyes to keep my concealer on and my eyeshadow. Sometimes I use it alone for a more natural look.
DG from Las Vegas
Eyeshadow creasing before I can even finish my day. Awful product. Waste of money. Don't buy.
Living Fit from North Carolina
I love this product not only as an eye shadow primer but as an everyday eye brightener. There are very few products that I buy repeatedly, but this is one of them! I love to wear on my lids and inner eye corner for an unmade up look...only fresher!
Definitely a repeat user!
Linnie from Ga
Have used 3 other bottles of this ..so I do like it and recommend you try it too!
I told my daughter about this, now we both use it.
Mimi from Macomb MI
I use this for dark circles under my eyes and as an eye shadow base. Works well for both applications. I'm a return user.
I would buy this product again
Bev b from Clovis California
Good product and never knew about it until somebody at also told me a few years ago I've been using it probably 5 years now
Wouldn't buy again
Jessica from NJ
I applied this product prior to putting on my eyeshadow as directed. Within a few hours I noticed a crease in the middle of my eyelid. I have used other eye primers before and this has never happened. Will definitely not be buying again.
I dont even let this run out!!!!
IFBBJennSedia from Texas
I use this in the at 5am when i go workout, covers just enough but not to thick , just love it
I will buy this product again!
Renea from Pinehurst, NC
I have hooded eyes and my eyes and find it hard for my eye shadow to stay n place. This product works for me very well.
Did not keep my eyeliner on more than an hour.
Catherine from Illinois
I returned this product. For the price I fully expected my eye makeup to still be there in an hour much less a full day as it states on the box.
