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.

not great

This works a little bit, but by the end of the day my eye shadow has mostly disappeared. I prefer just using everyday concealer

Primer doesn't stay
Sampled

Primer didn't stay a full 8 hour day. It also contained shimmer and is light on skin (not transparent), which I didn't favor either.

I did not dislike this product, however, I have one that I really like that I have been using for quite some time. I'm reluctant to change at this time but that doesn't mean I won't in the future.

just ok
Sampled

I liked this product and it does its job, but I use a drugstore product that is just as effective and a fraction of the price.

too dark as under-eye concealer/primer for fair skin
Sampled

i'm a redhead, so i have very fair skin. i was excited to try this product because i love benefit, but upon application it was clear that the product was too dark for my skin tone. i think it would be fine as an eyeshadow primer, even if you have fair skin, but i had intended on using it as an under-eye concealer/primer.

Not Effective
Sampled

I used to be a die hard Urban Decay Primer Potion user, but recently I've started using Too Faced Shadow Insurance and it is unbelievable how much better Too Faced's primer is. It's almost perfect. It doesn't make my eyes look dried out and it actually holds my eye shadow all day long. The Benefit Stay Don't Stray actually made my makeup look worse than if I wasn't wearing a primer at all. There was bad creasing within and it didn't make my color pop as much as Shadow Insurance. Don't waste your money!

I used this primer in the morning and by mid afternoon my eyeshadow had already creased. I don't usually use eye primer, and this did not really do much for me so I will not buy it.

Not a necessity...
Sampled

I had never used an eye primer before this sample, and that's ok with me. I do like this product, it keeps my eyeshadow put and blends nicely with my skin tone (I'm fair skinned)
However, I don't notice a benefit from the use of this product. Wouldn't be on my must have list.

Good but there are cheaper options
Sampled

This primer was fine, but the cost is crazy, especially when compared to other high end primers out there. It works fine but I wouldn't purchase.

Not Bad

But not great. It kept my shadow from fading or creasing on my days off, but once I was back to work, it just didn't hold up. I've used much better primers.
