Benefit Cosmetics 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.

Not Happy

Super disappointed in this product. Based on the reviews I expected something better than what I was using. I eneded up doing a test and using my old primer against this one. At the end of the day I had one eyelid with no creases and the other with major creasing. Test over. This stuff did not hold up. I want my money back.

Didn't Do The Job For Me

Plain and simple, I had major eyeshadow creasing when I used this. Big fan of Benefit but this was a no go for me!

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!

Nope nope

Too much product comes out of the pump! I like the new packaging that has a doe foot applicator.
I still don't like it - it's too drying to use under the eye.

not good at all

I love trying new primers however this one does not do its job. After a long day my eye shadow is creased and super oil. I am not sure if I can return a used products but I wish I could. Doesn't do a good job primer my concealer under my eyes either. I do not recommend this one. The balm put a lid on it is the best I have used so far.

Didn't Work for Me

This was way too greasy on my eyelids, which has never been an issue for me before. My eyeshadow ended up all over my face and creasing before noon. I had to return it....really wanted to like this product.

Doesn't work

I really love most Benefit products, but this one misses the mark. I was using Bare Minerals eye primer which worked so great. No smudging or lines. I tried Benefit because it was in my Birchbox. I always have creases by the end of the day. One day I went with no primer on my eye lid, and it looked just the same as the eyelid with the primer. This product just isn't effective. Bo-ing, on the other hand, works wonders. Oh well.

Didn't work

My eyeliner and eyeshadow smudged/faded so quickly into my day. I tried it a few more times and tossed it when it gave the same results. I think I had a bad one since everyone else seems to love it. Or I just have skin that doesn't work with this formula.

Smugdes

It did not work for my eyeliner. It still made a crease across my eye lid. But it does work under eye areas well.
