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.

Although benefit makes great products it need to stay away from my eyes in general. I have come to this conclusion after multiple uses and repeated attempts to use there products around my eyes. I am a contact wearer and I'm not sure if that is the case. I do however find that most of their products leave my eyes irritated

Great primer!
Sampled

First time using eyeshadow primer and I love it. My shadow lasts all day and I can tell this really sticks it on. Not heavy and easy to apply

Great primer
Purchased

I've used other primers that seem to have a life of their own. They glimmer, they shine, but this product does exactly what it states ... it primes and color corrects. I wear it both under eye shadow and when I go without. It makes my eyes look refreshed and alive.

Ouch

I have sensitive skin and while I love the idea of this product it made both my skin and eyes burn. I should have tested a patch first but I haven't had trouble with other benefit products....point is, watch out if your skin is sensitive!

Wow, Great Stuff
Purchased

Ok I used the Stay Dont Stray by Benefit and Ive tried all the others out there. I stopped cuz it was too thick imo.This time I'm inlove. The applicator is weird yes But idc because the product is amazing. The yellow tone cancels out any redness you might have on your eyelids and its super silky soft formula is not greasy but stays put and makes a lovely base for any cream or dry shadows you want to wear. Wish is cost less, but I'll have to buy more anyways.

Doesn't Stay All Day

It's nice that this primer has an SPF but it honestly doesn't work. By mid day my shadow and liner were halfway down my face. I returned this soon after purchase.

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!

Great Product

I am a big fan of eyeshadow primers, and this one is a great buy. It goes on smooth and even, and semi-sheer when done as a single layer. Holds highly pigmented solid colors just as well as shimmering metallics.
When removing, I have noticed that my eye area doesn't seem as red as with some other eyeshadow primer products, which is due to its BB qualities.
For eyeshadow primers in this price range, its definitely my preference.

Air Patrol
Purchased

The product works great, keeps my eye shadow in place all day, and actually feels soothing going on. I have extremely sensitive skin around my eyes, prone to allergic reactions and eczema and this gave me no reaction at all. I love everything about this stuff except the applicator. There is no happy medium when it comes to dispensing it. Either I click it twice and it never makes it to the top or three times and it's rushing out and it's too much. Product goes to waste and at this price, it's not economical for me to have to waste that much every time I use it. I've run into a similar problem with other Benefit products, which is unfortunate because the products themselves are great!
