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.

Did not change much.

I used this product under powder eyeshadow and I didn't notice any benefit to using it. It did not prevent eyeshadow from clumping in my crease. I have an eye primer from Urban Decay that is much better and keeps my eyeshadow perfect all day. I would not recommend this product.

Product

Good product, does the trick, however seems like an extravagance for my 5 minute beauty routine.

Not worth the cost/time

I don't use a lot of eye shadow, so maybe that's why this product doesn't seem worth the time, effort, and money to use.

Applicator needs redesigned
Purchased

The product itself is great but the applicator is terrible. I wish it was a squeeze applicator or roller ball as opposed to this turn and click that doesn’t dispense until it’s everywhere. When the product isn’t coming out very well it pulls on my skin. Overall I wouldn’t buy this again due to the way it’s packaged. I’ve even tried storing the tube upside down so the product will come out easier.

Love the product, but not the applicator
Purchased

I fell in love with this product when I got the deluxe sample, but when I ordered the full size product I was disappointed because it takes too long for product to come out when you twist it, and I feel like a lot of the product is wasted and gets dried out and clogs up the applicator head. I wish the full sized product was easier to use like the sample was.

Good concealer, not primer
Purchased

I preordered this before release date, and was a bit disappointed. It makes a great concealer but my shadows still creased by the end of the day, so not so great as a primer for me. I ended up just using it as a concealer. Applicator is nice.

Love this BB cream
SampledPurchased

After receiving the sample size in one of my Birchboxes, I HAD to order the larger size! It is goes on smooth and silky and provides more than adequate coverage. I really like the SPF component to protect my face. I use the product on smaller blemishes on my face as well (not just my eyelids)

nothing fantastic
Purchased

I didn't see anything exceptional about this eye primer. The applicator tip was meh. I will finish using it but will not repurchase.

Primer is ok
Purchased

I love the Benefit products so it's always my go-to when I need something. It's a nice primer, but I'm not exactly sure if it's so much better than any primer I've ever used. I have nothing bad to say about it, there is no "wow" factor like a lot of their products.

Okay- nice

To me this was just another primer for the eye.. I'm not one to judge it's use in the long term though. I just don't use primer unless it's a special occasion and I see the need for longer wear makeup. I work inside so it's just no necessary. Now if I worked outside that'd be a different story.
