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.

I have never felt the need for an eyelid primer. Just one more layer to put on. I tried it. I didn't notice any difference in how long my eye makeup stayed on. I have never had a problem with my eye makeup not lasting in the past. I would not purchase. I do like this brand, though.

a little too runny

I love eyeshadow primer and typically love Benefit products. This one was too runny for me. I prefer a cream shadow primer. I do like that it has spf

It doesn't work too well for me
Sampled

I love the concept, but this doesn't work as well some of the other eyelid primers I've used. My eyeshadow doesn't stay in place and still creases. I love the concept though!

Good color

but it was only marginally more effective at keeping my eyeshadow in place.

Okay

I actually tried to use this as a base for concealer. Not really the intended purpose but I figured it would work the same since it's a primer. Didn't really work the way I would hope and it also didn't last as long. Will try with eye shadow but I have my doubts now that it will extend the length of the eye shadow as well.

No chsnge

I really didn't notice a difference and was a little confused that the package said to apply multiple times a day.

Nothing Special

It didn't cover the veins on my eyelids very well and my liner did smudge some. Bottom line - there are other products I like better.

Eh

I really wanted to like this. I love benefits but I really saw no difference from when I use any other primer or just apply eye shadow to bare skin.

Air patrol

I have never used a primer before so this was a brand new experience. It wasn't bad. It was a nice color.It was smooth on my eyelids and if it protects my skin, it's a plus

Interesting product

Not the biggest fan of Benefit Cosmetics, but this is an intriguing idea. I generally put my BB cream all over my face, including eyelids, so am not sure I would purchase a product just as an eyelid primer, especially since I don't usually wear eye shadow
