Benefit Stay Don't Stray Eyeshadow Primer

This little gem is a foolproof way to ensure that your undereye concealer and eyeshadows stay put from morning to night (to late late night). It comes in one surprisingly versatile shade that brightens underneath and above the eye. The lightweight formula blends in easily and won't clog the delicate skin around the eyes.

Didn't as an eyeshadow primer for me at all
Purchased

It's supposed to be an eyeshadow primer and concealer but it is definitely all concealer. The consistency of the product made my eyeshadow slide off my eyelids faster than it happens when I have no product on at all.

I usually get my eyeshadow primer from Urban Decay because it works so well but though I would give this a try since I had some points to spare. It just didn't work at all for me. I will definitely be returning to my normal brand.

bad

felt heavy and stung my eye lids. I prefer a different brand that I've found to be light and long-lasting.
bottom line: I would not recommend this product. Love some of their other products!

So far so good
Purchased

Bought this after watching a video on Birchbox on dramatic eyes, as I usually lose even my basic eyeliner about halfway through the day. This seems to be making a difference for basic days; I recently coupled it with benefit push-up liner & mascara for a wedding and had flawless eyes from noon until midnight without having to touch up!

This concealer blends into my complexion so well and is truly does stay on all day! It blends great under my foundation, you can't even tell I'm wearing concealer!

Wonderful!
Purchased

I was a little hesistant to try this product based on some of the reviews, but I'm glad I did. This product worked great as both a concealer and eyeshadow primer! I didn't dab it on like the instructions said, but swiped it on then used my finger to smooth it out. The trick is not to put it on too thick and let it dry a few minutes before putting on anything over it.

Not great

This product did not function as an eyeshadow primer. Most primers have a thick consistency. This one was thing and no different than any regular old concealer. I just use it as an under eye concealer because eyeshadow wears off when it is used as a primer.

Great!

This product was great. It is amazing eyelids primer and your eyeshadow really stays, and doesn't stray. It doesn't budge for a very long time

Stay Don't Stray
Purchased

I am not a huge fan of this product. I purchased it because I was looking to buy an eye shadow primer and I trust benefit. This product is good for keeping your eye shadow in place. However, I really did not like the texture. It didn't go on smooth and it made my eye lids have a rougher texture that i really didn't like. I also have sensitive eyes and it kind of burned them just putting it on my eye lids.

Primer & Concealer
Purchased

This is a great primer for eye shadow! I also use it as an under-eye concealer, as other reviewers have said. The only thing is that I can't really tell if it makes that much of a difference. I've enjoyed using it, and it goes on smoothly and blends well, but I'm not sure it's one of those products I just can't live without.

Great as a Concealer but...
Purchased

Benefit's Stay Don't Stray Eye Primer claims it won't clog the skin around the eyes. I have fine lines & it seeps into them rather than helping to "prime" them. Maybe I'm just confused. Other primer's I've tried don't do that, I really love the coverage though.
