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.

I didn't know I needed this...

But I can't live without it. It's almost like applying foundation to your eyes, but it holds eyeshadow like no other. It's also pretty brightening, so if you're applying a light color, it definitely enhances it. I don't wear dark colors much, so I can't speak to that side of it. I got this as a sample size and it lasted about 6 months. I'm definitely getting the full size!

Didn't Do The Job For Me

Plain and simple, I had major eyeshadow creasing when I used this. Big fan of Benefit but this was a no go for me!

Works!

I have the most greasy eyelids imaginable and this stuff grabs onto my shadows and locks the color in all day -- even on the most humid days. I also apply under my eyes before concealing and it keeps my concealer from creasing. (but i still set with banana powder)

Makeup that stays put

Thanks to this product, my under eye concealer and eyeshadow last all day. I have dark under eye circles that used to show no matter what I did. Thanks to this product paired with the Benefit Fake Up, my dark circles are hidden al day.

I cannot do without this product. It not only acts as a primer for my undereye concealer, it brightens up my entire eye area and acts as a concealer in its own right. So good.

Totally worth the $$

With my lids that can be oily or dry, I need an eye primer. I've tried both the Urban Decay and Smashbox primers, and I felt like my eye makeup didn't just fade during the day, it disappeared. This primer works so much better. I wouldn't have bought it since it's so pricey, but I had a teeny sample that lasted 6 months. The full size is huge in comparison and will probably last a year.

Not great as an eye makeup primer
Purchased

I have used other products that worked MUCH better at helping my eye shadow to last during the day. This dried quickly and then my eye shadow didn't grab onto my lid like it does with creamier primers. Not happy with the results.

Perfect eye primer!

I'm hooked on this product! I use this without any moisturizer underneath and it goes on light and smooth. Great for keeping everything in place. Can't do my face without it!
