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.

Although I have been using foundation for years, I am still fairly new to concealers. I am really happy with this product! I didn't actually use this as an eye primer, but rather, as an under eye concealer for the bags under my eyes. If you have the sample, take the stick and dot a line down your nose line and then go diagonally up to where your eye ends. Dot some inside, too, and then blend it in. This really helps to brighten up under the eye and hides those bags!

I have been trying to find a nice concealer that does not look too yellow under my eyes. This is it! It was awesome and stayed on all day, which says a lot since I am an eye rubber. Definitely worth purchasing.

great product
Sampled

I've used other eye primers that clump up and crease even hours after it was applied-this one is perfect! I used it all over my eye (underneath as a concealer) before my 12 hour work day and it looked just as it did when I first applied my shadow/liner in the morning! I also received many compliments on how good my makeup looked from coworkers after our crazy St. Patricks day...I didn't even need to reapply all day long! Soo awesome!!
100% recommend this product!!

I'm in love!

When I first applied it I paniced. I'm extremely fair skined and it went on DARK on my eyelids. But after it dried I was able to breath again. I went on with my makeup routine and applied eyeshadow and eyeliner (just a black eyeshadow). Now we're talking about 7:30 in the morning. At 8:30 that night when i went to wash my face everything was just where it was supposed to be with out smudging or fading. Far beter than any primer I've tried before!

Not just an eyeshadow primer
Sampled

I received a sample of this product when I purchased a Benefit kit from Sephora in January and fell in love with it. I was so happy to receive another in this month's Birchbox. This product is hands down the best under eye concealer primer. I have oily skin, even my under eye area gets a little oily and my concealer used to settle into tiny lines and look cakey mere hours after application. This product completely eliminates that. My under eye concealer looks fresh all day long, I'm talking 10+ hours. I use it with Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch concealer and I swear together they are the under eye concealer dream team. This is also a great eye shadow primer, not only does it provide a great base color wise but it also makes eyeshadows appear brighter and more colorful. My eyeshadow does not crease even after 8+ hours with this product. I also sometimes dab a bit on any blemishes that I have before I apply concealer and it makes it stay all day.

The formula is easy to blend and creamy without being greasy feeling or heavy. It is tinted a yellowish shade to counteract blue/purple from dark circles but it's very natural looking and it also provides light to medium coverage. This is great for those with fair to medium complexions because you don't need to use as much concealer. Because of the light shade I'm not sure if this would work for those with darker complexions. The sample packaging is great, the little wand is great for controlling how much product you want to use. Like I said I got a sample of this in January and it lasted me a little over a month. I recommend using a little bit and letting it sit for a minute or two before applying eyeshadow or concealer.

I received a sample of this in a Benefit kit I purchased from Sephora in January and fell in love with this product. I was so excited to see it in this month's Birchbox. This product is great because not only is it an awesome eyeshadow primer, but it's also the best under eye concealer primer. I have oily skin, even the skin under my eyes gets a little oily, and my concealer used to settle into tiny lines and look cakey mere hours after I applied it. This product prevents that completely. My under eye concealer looks fresh all day, no touch ups needed. I use it with Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch concealer and I swear it is the under eye concealer dream team. It does not settle or look cakey at all, even after 12+ hours. This is also a great eye shadow primer, my eyeshadow does not crease for at least 8 hours with this product.

The formula is very easy to blend and creamy, but not greasy or heavy. It is also tinted (a bit yellow to counteract dark circles) and offers light to medium coverage which is great for those with fair or light skin. Because of the coverage from this primer I don't use as much concealer. I'm not sure this would work for darker complexions because of the light tint. The sample packaging is great, the little wand is much better than the pump on the full size product. I recommend using a little bit and letting it sit for a minute or two before applying concealer or eyeshadow.

This is a really nice primer. While I try to limit my daily routine, I do use a primer when I'm going from work to somewhere else. This primer kept my eyes looking fantastic all day.
