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.

Great!

This product was great. It is amazing eyelids primer and your eyeshadow really stays, and doesn't stray. It doesn't budge for a very long time

Stay Don't Stray
Purchased

I am not a huge fan of this product. I purchased it because I was looking to buy an eye shadow primer and I trust benefit. This product is good for keeping your eye shadow in place. However, I really did not like the texture. It didn't go on smooth and it made my eye lids have a rougher texture that i really didn't like. I also have sensitive eyes and it kind of burned them just putting it on my eye lids.

Primer & Concealer
Purchased

This is a great primer for eye shadow! I also use it as an under-eye concealer, as other reviewers have said. The only thing is that I can't really tell if it makes that much of a difference. I've enjoyed using it, and it goes on smoothly and blends well, but I'm not sure it's one of those products I just can't live without.

Great as a Concealer but...
Purchased

Benefit's Stay Don't Stray Eye Primer claims it won't clog the skin around the eyes. I have fine lines & it seeps into them rather than helping to "prime" them. Maybe I'm just confused. Other primer's I've tried don't do that, I really love the coverage though.

I love this primer! I'm not sure I'll switch again!! The only bummer is sometimes it doesn't come in the lighter color and then I have to switch :(

I really like benefit products! I purchased this after seeing the rave on beauty blogs. I love how it gives you a nice pale canvas to work with. It really makes your eyeshadow pop! Long lasting, I can where my eyeshadow for 12 hours and it looks great!

Great Eye primer

I like that it keeps my eye shadow from smudging or fading over time. It can feel a little bit oily but I like to let it dry completely and then go over it with a oil absorbent paper. I also use it as a under-eye highlighter.

Ehhh

Wasn't overly impressed with this, an eyelid primer is still a better option to put this on before eyeshadow. Is slightly watery and smudged eyeshadow when the eyeshadow stayed on for awhile. When used as a normal concealer it went on watery and dried slightly cakey. I love the primers benefit makes! if you want a benefit pre-eyeshadow product go for one of those over this. Love benefit but missed the mark on this one.
