The packaging for BeneFit Stay Don't Stray proclaims to be a primer and a concealer. Well, I have a different opinion of this product. First, the product has a pump, which is good, however it dispenses too much of the product . It is extremely wasteful. At 24.00 a bottle, waste must be kept to a minimum.Second, if you have any real darkness around the eye, it just doesn't cover. I am a women of color (light caramel), it looked like I had cream color paste around my eyes. That is not attractive. Third, the reason that I purchased this product, as a primer. It falls short in the realm of primers. It was very difficult to place the eye shadows and blend. The brush just dragged across the primer. It never looked right the colors were dull. The worst part is that it creased within two hours. I tried it everyday for a week. I used different methods of applications and it still didn't work. Not the product that I thought it would be.

I received this as a complimentary gift in a gift bag, so I tired it for the past week and half and sadly it did not work for me;*My eyeshadow still creased and faded.*I used BeneFit eyeshadow with it as well as other brands and it never worked. *It could be that maybe my eye lids are just naturally oily? I think that may be the case with gals having combination skin, such as myself.

I tried this product, hoping to love it but sadly it just didn't measure up for me. Pros:-nice neutral colour for my lid (although I'm assuming it's probably not so great for women with darker skin tones which kind of sucks)Cons:-major creasing! I don't have overly oily lids (I can use paint pots as a base with no creasing at all) but this was a nightmare. I tried it several times to no avail.-the packaging is horrible; you are basically guaranteed to pump out too much product thus wasting a ton of it.- this stuff is expensive! Too Faced Shadow Insurance is $24 cdn for .35oz (in way better packaging) while this is $30 for .33oz.Overall, I'll stick to paint pots and Too Faced. While Benefit is a cute and kitschy line, I wish their products would live up to their promises.

Stay with your current primer, do not stray to this one. Kitschy does not equal effective. Mine was free and I still never use it (used to manage a benefit counter.)Fergalicious puts them all to shame, IMO.

After having tried all benefit eyeshadow bases on myself and customers I have to say they suck so badly!!! None of them seems to keep my eyeshadows from creasing. Not even the ones I never had problems with in the first place. I really hate that I have to sell them and never really reccomend them to any of my customers.Stay don't stray is the best out of the bunch though. The pros about it are that it neutralizes the eyelid colour very nicely and actually does keep concealer from settling in fine lines. As an eyeshadow base it's pretty useless. Doesn't make the colours more vibrant, doesn't prevent creasing, nothing. I wish they would finally make a base that's worth buying considering benefit is not a particularly cheap brand. The packaging is kinda tricky too. The pump makes it hard to get out the right amount of product.I wouldn't ever buy it myself.

Okay, so the pump dispenser sucks, but I find that if I just sort of squeeze lightly (almost more of a tap against the top of it) it will dispense just enough for under both eyes and on each lid. The product itself is great. I got it because I needed a flesh-toned eye primer (I was using MAC paint pots as eyelid primers before I got this). It does a fantastic job of keeping eyeshadow on and uncreased, and that's high praise from me since I have unusual shaped lids and oily skin which cause my shadow to crease easily. The sales girl at the Benefit counter said that it also primes skin under the eyes to help your concealer stay on. Because this product is tinted it actually conceals the dark circles a bit itself as well. It was pretty expensive but I only use tiny dab each time so I can see it lasting quite a while.

Love this formula, and everything it does for me. Its a great shadow primer, goeson smooth and dries super-quick. Makes my shadow stay on all day without any creasing. Only thing that frustrates me is the pump dispense, which is why i gave it a rating of 2. Even thought this is a liquid, it should be put in a pot because you only need a SMALL amount , I acutally use just a dot to cover BOTH of my eyelids. I made my own solution to this by using one of my empty plastic Sephora sample containers (I always keep and reuse them) pumped as much as I could get in there and I carry it in my purse and just dip my finger in it to get my perfect "dab" of it. Try this and you'll really like this formula in the long run.

This was recommended by the sales girl at Ulta. I have very oily skin- nothing lasts. I'm also beginning to get fine lines under my eyes :( I will say that this lasted longer then most, about 6 hours. Then the oil returned and it seemed to settle into my under eye lines. I really wanted this to work but back it goes.

Hate it. It does nothing. Actually, even worse, i have the impression my shadows stay on better without any primer than with this stuff.

This is a fantastic eye primer, and my eyeshadow stays put from about 7am to 9pm. However, I do use decent eyeshadows (Estee Lauder and Lancome) and I'm not sure how much that has to do with it. I also use it as a concealer all over which works brilliantly.I wish I could score it as a 5, but the thing which brings down my score is the wretched pump. It's just rubbish. By the nature of the product, you need a very small amount. The pump squirts out loads, causing mess and waste, and is really hard to make it dispense just a very small amount.When mine runs out I will buy it again, but I hope by then that Benefit has rectified the issue with the pump.
