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

      Product is not bad but I like Urbad Decay primers much better as they last longer throughout the day and barely crease at the end of the day. Product is not thick but seems to be more efficient if you apply a double layer and let it dry before spreading product on lid. I have oily skin/eyelids with sensitive skin so I am cinstantly trying different products, this product did not flaked my eye lid skin. Overall, product is good but not the best on the market.

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

      I love the product, it blends well and does not crease. I have very thin skin under my eyes, so I was very pleased with the finished look. The only con is that it is not very long lasting, but I would buy it again.

      awful

      By hannah

      from pennsylvania

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

      i bought this because i liked the applicator, and the urban decay primer potion didn't have one. now that it does, i will be buying that from now on.
      this primer really doesn't do ANYTHING to keep your eyeshadow on all day. it fades. it does even out your eyelid but that's it. i think my eyeshadow would stay better even if i didn't have any primer on instead of this one. it's not worth it at all

          I guess my eyelids must be oily. This is the only primer that works for me. The others crease and do not have great coverage.

          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!

            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.
