Benefit Stay Don't Stray

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.

It was ok
Sampled

It was just ok to me. I have another eyshadow primer I like much better. I didn't realize you could use it under your eyes though. I definitely need to try that!

I wanted to love this product, but couldn't.
Sampled

Applied under my eyes, it does a great job of brightening--until I look in the mirror an hour later and find that it has settled into my lines, and I now look very tired and very old. I have extremely oily eyelids, and this product did not prevent eye shadow from creasing, even shadow that Urban Decay's primer always keeps in place.

not exciting
Sampled

This product was just "ok." Didn't think the primer was totally effective, but it did help somewhere. Not up to par with the usual birchbox products

Doesn't Stay

Got this because my creamier eyeshadows were migrating and clumping over the course of the day. I am not convinced this product did anything to help this problem; I was surprised because I usually find Benefit products work well. I was disappointed but it does give nice undereye eye concealing power, but I had to start using my Laura Mercier under-eye stuff with it...

Pretty Good, for an eye-primer
Sampled

I don't see the use in eye-primer. My eye shadow stays fine. Have tried this product before, tried it again with the sample in birchbox, don't really see a difference. I liked the texture more than others I have tried.

OK
Sampled

I got this sample in my Birchbox and started using it as an eyeshadow concealer as well as to help conceal any major blemishes. The first few days it seemed to be working, especially in correcting red spots, so I decided to use a coupon I had and purchase the full size. After using the full size for about a week I am not impressed. I like that the color is great for concealer, which I don't think that is what it is intended to be used for. But it seems to make my eyeshadow crease even more than it did before!

Not So Great For Me
Sampled

I have oily eyelids, so an eyeshadow primer is necessary for me. I'd never used this particular one before, so I was pleased to receive this sample. Unfortunately, it didn't really live up to my expectations. The primer I currently use manages to keep oil at bay all day, but with this my shadow was creasing and unattractive in just a few hours.

It's OK

This product was just OK. I like the Urban Decay primer much more.. The Benefit one just doesn't last as long.

Almost there
Sampled

The primer worked very well. The issue I have with it is the color. The color almost comes off orange on me, due to the fact i am VERY pale. I will use it for dark colors but not my everyday eye makeup. Kind of disappointing.
