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.

Love that it can be used on lids and under eyes
Purchased

This primer goes on very smoothly and blends right into the skin. It provides good coverage to brighten your lid and the one reason I really love it is because it really helps cover my dark eye circles. I use it as a primer before using concealer and therefore don't need to use as much concealer on top of it since it provides some coverage = no cakey under-eyes. I don't usually wear a lot of heavy eyeshadow so I can vouch for its primer purposes for a smokey eye but for me it does the trick. Another major plus is it is NOT drying at all! Most eye primers suck all the moisture out of your eyelids but this does not.

Keeps shadow from creasing!
Purchased

I workout everyday at lunch in sometimes 90 degree temps so I have always had trouble with my eyshadow ending up in the creases of my eyelids. This product does the trick. My eyes look the same in the evening as they do when I first apply my makeup.

Best primer I have ever used

I am in awe of this product. Goes on smoothly. Not at all irritating to my sensitive skin. My eye makeup looks as good at the end of the day as it did in the morning when I left for work. Enough coverage under eyes to skip concealer... Most days.

Love It

I received this product in my Birchbox for the first time a year or two ago. I loved it so much I purchased a full size. The full size has lasted me well over a year. Definitely something I use everyday. I have very hooded eyelids and this makes it so that my eye shadow stays in place all day and sometimes even into the next day!! I find that it can also double as a concealer, it covers redness and blemishes nicely as it reflects the light off of them. Definitely worth the extra money.

Good concealer and/ primer
Purchased

I only gave 4 stars because my concealer still ends up caking/streaking hours later. Put on alone it conceals and lightens dark circles and eyeshadow seems to stay longer. Yet, in a few hours I have to blend again because it looks streaky under the eyes. For me its better on non-makeup days to lighten dark circles.

works well as a concealer

works well as a concealer, however, my eyeshadow still creased while using this. It's a very thick product though, so it has good coverage.

Great Primer
Purchased

I've had many of these products. Most make you out on your finger or use a brush cause of the squeeze container. Love that this one has a wand. It's soft and keeps things out! Amazing!! Love all Benefit products!

A must have!
Purchased

First started using this when I received it in my my monthly Birchbox. Have been using it ever since, I don't wear eye shadow but I still use it on my lids as well as underneath my eyes. Helps keep the oil at bay on the lid, no oily sheen up there and also helps keep my concealer underneath my eyes to "stay not stray". :)

Surpirsed how much I like this
Purchased

When I first tried this I was a little skeptical. It was much thinner than I was expecting and not as "pasty" as other eyeshadow bases I have used before. However, this stuff keeps my eyeshadow on all day. I never put eyeshadow on without this stuff now.
