Great product. Keeps eye shadow looking fresh day into night!
Most Helpful Critical Review This WAS one of my must-have products!
I was very loyal to this product, it was one of a few that I HAD to have and I bought it over and over. Sadly, since the switch to the wand container, the product just isn't the same. I was initially glad about the switch, as I always dispensed too much product with the pump. I've been using the new one a few weeks now, and the product is thinner and glossier and doesn't cover and apply nearly as well. (I LOVED this product as a concealer, too.) Please bring back the product in the pump container, I NEED this in my life again! I've had to resort to hoarding the original product from wherever I can find it to hold me over until I can discover a suitable replacement. (or until Benefit brings back the original product, fingers crossed!)

Dry and pasty.....doesn't want to blend. I was hoping this would be the one, but it is not.

Waste of money!

I was recommended this product by the ulta staff, I had run out of my eye primer I have used forever (order online) and needed something quick. I used this product and applied my eye makeup and 15 minutes later it looked like I had my make up done 6 hours before. Tried it several more times with the same failure. Worthless!
The greatest Eye Primer!
Evie from Miami, Fl
Great as a spot Concealer and normally used underneath the concealer and eye makeup first to make a clean canvas. I find myself always going back to this after trying many options. It's earned a spot in my makeup Arsenal "must haves."
Never straying again.
Son from Brokaw San Jose
Use very sparingly try three small dots first. Work fast and if you had put to much on adjust using a makeup dampened makeup sponge. I use to clean around lid and crease if using full eyeshadow makeup but I use it as a natural highlighter under brow.
Vicki from Tennessee
Does a great job
One of my favorite Benefit products!
KC from Michigan
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
Would not buy again

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
Maya2531 from Chciago, IL
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.
