Undereye Primer

By KittyKatz

from Florida

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

As an eyeshadow primer it's pretty good, but I think it ahould really be advertised for an undereye primer. Put this on before you put on underwye concealer and it will stay for days! Also, can be worn alone as an undereye concealer for light coverage. Highly recommend!

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

    I use this under my eyes and on a few moles on my forehead as a concealer. It goes on easily and does not pull or cake like thicker concealers. If I don't feel like wearing foundation, I just blend it to my check and add some pink to my cheeks.

      I've tried many different types of concealers for my dark circles, but over and over I end up with mascara/eyeliner smudged under my eyes. I keep coming back to Benefit and won't leave it again. This product was made for my eyes!

      only eye primer I've found that works for me

      By Karly

      from Western NY

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

      I have really oily skin & my eyeshadow used to always crease, no matter what I did or what I used. Finally tried this & it works great! It keeps my eyeshadow in place all day, it seriously doesn't crease AT ALL, even after a long day. I swipe on a tiny amount & gently blend it out with my finger to cover my lids, then set it with a damp sponge & translucent powder immediately.

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

        I love that this eye primer is tinted. It really helps to smooth out my eyelids and covers up any discoloration. I feel like sometimes if I'm wearing it for an extended period of time or if I wear it on a really hot day, the product doesn't prevent creasing. However on a daily basis, it does a great job.

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

            It didn't really do anything it was supposed to do. My eyeshadow wore of and creased by the end of the day. I was disappointed because I usually really like Benefit products.

            I returned it and went back to the Smashbox 24hr primer. That is a great product and works really well.

                  I have tried many shadow priners, and this one actually works. It is slightly pigmented but will not interfere with your eye shadow colors. It has not prevented creasing on my oily, mature eye lids.
