    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer:

    I apply this directly to my skin right before adding my foundation. I've found it's a perfect match combined with Lorac translucent powder, making my make up last all day even when it's extremely hot out.

    Best primer EVER

    By Skye

    from All 4 seasons in one day

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer:

    I've been using this for 3 years and I love it.
    No breakups, no melting, doesn't budge a bit!!
    I've tried other primers when mine runs out and nothing works as well as this one.
    I swipe once across my tzone, and make two large circles on my cheeks, and then I rub it in with my hands. My makeup goes on perfectly and stays all day with absolutely no problems at all.

    APPLICATION IS KEY

    By Rachel

    from oceanside

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer:

    I was given a half used tube about two years ago and gave it a shot. I've had the cakey makeup, the separated makeup and everything in between. The glue stick went to the bottom of my makeup bag after that. Sometime between then and now I ran out of eye shadow primer and was desperate, so I threw some of this on with my finger and my eye shadow stayed on and applied lovely. Wash your hands well and use your fingers in small sections, the glue stick application is an odd way to apply a product that is supposed to "float" over the skin. I use this primer mostly for my eyes and have noticed that I don't have "palette problems" and it will keep all shadows in place. I recommend trying a sample and seeing if it works for you before purchasing an entire tube.

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer:

    If you put this product on and layer it with foundation using a brush, it will smear the product around and make it look clumpy and cakey. However, if you bounce foundation/powder over it with a beauty sponge (I used beauty blender) it looks flawless and lasts all day.

    Grosss

    By Kate

    from Michigan

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer:

    I applied this primer and it felt like I had just smeared glue on my face. I applied Oxygen Wow on top and at first I thought it was going to look okay, even if it didn't feel that great. However, while applying my highlighter, the primer built up and smeared and became a clumpy mess.

              I did not like this product... it's hard to apply the right amount and when you put on "too much", it makes your makeup look splotchy.. it makes your skin feel like wax and it DID NOT make my makeup last long at all... would not buy again..

                  This product was so sticky and even after trying different tricks and techniques I NEVER could get this to work. I tried it on 2 separate occasions and never could get it to work for me. I am not a newbie to makeup, primers included. I Have tried dozens. By far this was the worst.

                      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.
