Benefit Cosmetics Air Patrol BB Cream Eyelid Primer

Between sun exposure, pollution, and eye makeup, we put our eyes through a lot—and hiding behind sunglasses isn’t the solution. This is: a BB cream eyelid primer that protects, primes, and color corrects lids. It keeps delicate skin nourished and provides a smooth base for makeup—thanks to its patented CushionCalm™ applicator tip. The cream is also formulated with SPF 20 and a potent EnviroDefend complex that delivers serious eyelid defense against environmental stressors.

Applicator sucks

The product itself is good, but the applicator is terrible. It takes forever to come out and then clumps up in the tube. I won't buy it again.

Awkward packaging
Purchased

So the eyelid primer is ok- nothing great- but the packaging really bothers me. I though I would be able to use the tip as an applicator but it's totally awkward. I wind up clicking the pen to get the primer to come out, then taking my finger and using that to apply the product. Overpriced and not worth it.

I wanted to love it BUT-design flaw w/packaging
Purchased

Unfortunately there is a flaw with the packaging- the bottom twist is supposed to release the product- one twist per eye HOWEVER you can twist and twist and The product will not come out- for $29.00 you would think this would work!

Liked at first..
Purchased

When I first tried this product I was excited. I love the fact that this has SPF protection for you eyes. I found the product dried in the applicator and made it hard to evenly dispense the product the next time. The yellow coloring looked back with my pink undertone. I felt like it made my eyeshadow last less time than my normal eye primers.

I wasn't a fan
Purchased

I bought this product based on the reviews but I really didn't care for this primer. I felt like it made my eye area very yellow. I have fair skin so that could have been reason.

Not as good as I had hoped
Sampled

I thought I would love this because I love anything Benefit but my experience was that my makeup didn't last when I used this. :-(

Kind of Lame

Maybe I haven't grasped the whole eyelid primer deal yet, but for 29 bucks not sure I'd buy this. Overall it was ok, but not worth the price.

Not Effective With Oily Eyelids

After only a couple of hours my eye shadow creased. By the end of the day, my eye shadow was in my creases above and below my eyes. My eyelids also felt greasy.
I wish it would have worked because the color correction evened out my lid color, creating a good base for eye shadow.
Definitely made for people with "dryer" skin on their eyelids. I really don't need any more moisture on mine.

Meh

I tried this primer. It goes on pretty wet for a primer. I let it dry a bit and then started fixing it to my eyelids with powder and shadow. It was very creased by mid-day. When it comes to primers, I haven't found anything better than MAC's paint pots - now those will not crease and they add lots of intensity to shadow. I'm totally open to new things, but this product did not deliver professional results. I'm not even sure that I'd finish the sample.

Made my eyeshadow crease

I was surprised to find that my eyeshadow creased after using this product (without using it, I've never had this problem). For that reason, I don't see any real benefits. For me, an eye primer is supposed to keep this from happening.
