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.

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.

Perfect primer

This stuff lasts forever because just a little bit of it can be applied all over the eyelid. It makes your eyelids nice and soft, and you will see a difference in your eyeshadow application immediately. The colors will go on much more vibrantly and it sticks on all day for me without going into the creases! I love it. It's good for nights out too.

Creased terribly even on normal-oily lids
Purchased

Most primers make my lids dry, but my eyelids always get oily and shadow creases without. I thought this would be perfect because it claimed to provide hydration. It felt nice upon application (not drying), but after about 6 hours, my eyeshadow was creased terribly, almost as if I had forgotten primer entirely. I've used several brands of eyeshadow primer, and I've never had one that didn't work, until this one. I tried applying the primer more thinly and more thickly on subsequent days, but the product creased regardless. I even tried setting it with a powder before applying shadow, but still the creasing occurred. I wish this product was effective because the packaging is adorable, and I enjoyed using it!

Great

The applicator is so fun it like a little gummy and serves as much more than jut a primer with spf it is very long lasting and at the end of the day there is till no creases.

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.

Love this item
Purchased

Finally found a great eyelid primer. wasn't sure about this because sometimes benefit products are hit or miss for me. however...this is great. my eyeshadow stays all day and my eyes aren't irritated. I have oily eyelids and anyone that has this same issue knows that their shadow disappears by 10am. this makes shadow stay until you take it off. will never be without it. Thank you benefit for making this.

I love this primer, it isn't too heavy and doesn't effect my shadow colors when I use it like so many do.

Perfect base for eyeshadow
Purchased

This is a prefect base to make eye shadow go on and stay on and look smooth! It keeps it from smudging off you just have to watch so the tube doesn't dry out, the product can get a little caky at the top where it comes out.
