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.

Great Primer

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.

Wonderful!

This eyeshadow primer is the absolute BEST I've found. I've tried numerous brands, and I thought I was set on the Urban Decay until I tried Benefit's Stay Don't Stray. I work in NYC and I can take an hour and a half nap on the train in in the morning and my makeup is still perfect. I can sweat when I'm out in the sun all day long and my foundation and powder will disappear (still working on finding better face primer) but my eyes will be gorgeous. Hands down this product is AMAZING, a fantastic buy and will be a staple of mine for a long time to come.

my experience

This was my first primer that I have had experience with and I did not enjoy this primer at all. I did not purchase this but instead it came in a value set that I had purchased. At the time that I was using this, it did not have the doe tip applicator but the old application of a pump. It pumped out too much product and I found the formula to be quite thick and too creamy for my taste. The blending of this product was difficult because of the product formula and I did notice that this primer did crease on me within 4 hours of wear. I usually wear light and shimmery eyeshadows and I would notice a visible crease line on my eyelid.

Its drier thsn I'd like
Purchased

This has good color and coverage but its not creamy. its better if I apply it right after I put on eye cream but that seems to make it settle in the fine lines. My daughter uses it as a general cover up over acne spots and likes it for that. I think I would try something different next time.

a daily user!

I have a sample of this that I received in a gift set for Xmas. I've been using it on a few choice spots that I prefer. The texture is thicker so I don't use it on my eyelids, but use it under my eyes. It provides some additional coverage. For a sample it's lasted a long time! I will need to get a full size product soon. Happy that BB has it!!!

Never knew I needed it

I had never through about priming my eyelids until I tried this but it makes my shadow pop and last. I also like dabbing a little under my eye to help my concealer cover my dark circles.

Literally indispensible...if you can find the right formula

I've tried many, MANY products over the years to hide my natural dark circles caused by the thin skin under my eyes. This stuff made me throw almost everything else I owned out, because it was pretty much the best thing I'd ever found. The original formula is incredibly thick, and practically works as primer, concealer, and foundation in one. However, the pump-top bottle had a tendency to separate and/or give out too much product at once. Like many other users, I just shrugged and mixed the product on the side of my hand before applying.

However, Benefit (very generously) changed the packaging back to a wand...only it's not the same formula. The new stuff is much thinner. If you can, try to find the old pump-top stock for maximum coverup. If you're just looking for a pigmented primer, then the new formula will be fine.
