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.

Never Knew I Needed This!

I don't even use eyeshadow primers, but I may start now, because this product is great! It hides the dark circles under my eyes even better than my foundation, and my eyeshadow lasts noticeably longer using this product. Greatly reduces creasing too. I don't even see creasing until maybe 10 hours after application.

Not bad

I've tried a few primers before, and this one ranks in the middle.

Works great!

No complaints about this product. Looks natural and offers good hold. My one grip was that I didn't love the applicator, but it didn't hinder my overall experience

Nice Product

I usually just use my regular Bare Minerals foundation on my lids before applying eye shadow but this did the trick too. Much thicker and my shadow seemed to go on smoothly after application.

I liked this product because I'm pale, and it worked well as an under-eye concealer, as well as a lid primer. On days I work, I usually wear cream shadow because it's quick. I've started experimenting with eyelid primers, and have about 3 that I'm testing out. This one works really well for powder shadow, but when I used it for my cream shadow, it creased worse than when I don't wear primer at all.

I have another product that keeps my cream shadow in place, so I'm going to continue using that product.

I do plan on purchasing some benefit products in the future, because I like some of their other stuff I've seen in stores.

Good Primer
Sampled

This primer does what it says, it keeps your eyeshadow and concealer in place. I like that it also helped under my eyes, making my dark circles less noticeable and kept my concealer on better. It didn't make my eyeshadow as pigmented as some other primers, but still did a good job.

Best of the eye primers

When I remember to use it, this stuff really works. I have a fair complexion so it has good concealer-like coverage, but I wonder if this would be true for people with darker or tanned skin. It glides on smoothly, holds my eye makeup in place all day and prevents creasing. What more could I ask from a primer?

not useful to my beauty routine
Sampled

While this product felt great and looked fine, it is not something that I would use on a regular basis. My makeup is very minimal, i rarely wear eyeshadow or concealer. A little BB cream, lip balm/stain and occasionally eyeliner and/or mascara are all I do, so this is not a product I was excited to see in my birchbox. Oh well, I am always open to try new things, which is why i signed on to Birchbox in the first place! Quality was excellent, just not for me.
