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.

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.

I used this product before (received a sample from the Benefit counter) and I did not think it was effective as an eye shadow primer. I saw the editor's note that you can use this as an under-eye concealer/brightener, so I'm looking forward to see if the product works for me in this way.

not useful to my beauty routine
Sampled

While this product felt great and looked fine, it is not something that I would use on a regular basis. My makeup is very minimal, i rarely wear eyeshadow or concealer. A little BB cream, lip balm/stain and occasionally eyeliner and/or mascara are all I do, so this is not a product I was excited to see in my birchbox. Oh well, I am always open to try new things, which is why i signed on to Birchbox in the first place! Quality was excellent, just not for me.

I love this product! Will definitely be buying! Makes my concealer stay on and without lines for much longer than normal use.

Not the greatest
Sampled

Not impressed with this product at all. After using it for two days, I've seen no difference in the longevity of my undereye concealer or my eye shadow. In fact, I'd venture to say that it's made my eyes look worse by the end of the day. Won't be purchasing.
