Does not keep eye shadow in place. Very drying when used under concealer & pumps out too much product than is needed.
I will be returning this to the store.
I was very excited to try this product after hearing about it online. A 360 degree primer around the eye sounded like a great idea! After I purchased this and tried it out for a few days I found that the primer works very well on my lids ( I actually liked it better than Urban Decay's) with no creasing by the end of the day! As for priming the under eye area, it was awful! I tried it with 3 different concealers to make sure it wasn't the concealer that was creasing. My concealer is much better off without this product. As for the packaging, IT IS AWFUL !! The pump sounds like a good idea except it doesn't let you control the amount of product it dispenses! You end up wasting a ton of product each time you use it, which is a complete waste of your money. Overall : worked very well as a eye base only, but due to the frustrating packaging I will not be buying this again.
I loved this once I figured out that if you tap the top instead of pump it all the way down half a drop comes out instead of a teaspoon full. 2 taps in enough for each eye. I'm more mature in the eye area and loved the way it made both the my top lid and my under eye look not so much like crepe paper. I can get away with shimmer on the top again and don't have to powder my under eye to make my concealer stay.
I am one of the biggest Benefit fans of all time and I am incredibly disappointed in this product.
The good news is that it has lots of silicones that sit on top of my lines and doesn't sink in and accentuate them.
The bad news?
1) The packaging is terrible. Way too much comes out of the pump and the product dribbles down the side of the pump. Ugh.
2) My shadow creases MORE on me when I use this than when I don't. Isn't that the exact opposite of what's supposed to happen?
Back you go to Macy's -- I'll stick with my Erase Paste.
I used 100 sephora points to get a pretty good sized sample of this. It's a tiny tube w/a doe foot applicator, so I can't speak to the good or bad of the full size bottle, this one is easy to use. I was very excited to try this, but it is a total failure IMO. I've used this several days now and it looks nice on the under eye area upon application, brightening and seems to have a bit of coverage. As a eye primer it looks very much like the original udpp, and there the similarities end. Creased within 2 hours each time I've used it, and that just is not acceptable in a world in which many good primers already exist. I've learned to like a couple of benefit products, it seems to me they throw a ton of adorable, mediocre products against the wall just to see if they stick. This one did not stick, eyeshadow or otherwise! Lol
Stay Donít Stray is absolutely, without question, one of the worst eye shadow primers Iíve ever used. By the end of the day my eyeliner had joined my eye shadow in the crease of my eyelid. I havenít had creasing like that in I donít know how long! I followed the directions to a T, patting three small dots on top of my lid and underneath. I loved how my eye area looked instantly brightened after applying, but thatís all I liked. I like the idea of a pump, but as others have all ready stated, unless you can do half a pump, way too much product comes out and for the price, thatís not acceptable. Back to Sephora!
I have used UDPP for years and I wanted to try something new. I usually like Benefit's products so I was excited to try this one. The first time I used it, I had to pump like a million times and at first I thought that I may have gotten an empty container then all this product came out. What a waste! The packaging definitely sucks since it's so hard to control how much product would pump out. It also didn't do anything in preventing my eyeshadow from creasing. It started to crease after an hour. So I am returning this one and going back to my trusty UDPP.
Received a generous sample from Sephora and was excited to try this out as I don't really like the UD eye primers. Applied this both under eyes and on lids since I have trouble with creasing. I was so disappointed!! My eyeshadow looked okay, but my concealer was creasing within 10 minutes, and the eyeshadow had all but disappeared within a few hours. I'm glad I didn't purchase this, and I never will.
I got a generous sample of this from a nice Sephora rep. I love UDPP for my oily lids, but like many others, wanted something with a tint for masking slight discoloration on the lids. Stay Don't Stray accomplishes that, but then falls short in its staying power... this product was applied on my lids at 11 AM, and by 5 PM, there are visible creases of shadow on my lids. UDPP doesn't crease for me till near midnight, so back to UDPP I go.
OMG! I canít believe how much better this works than UDPP. Of course I never liked UDPP because I couldnít blend my eyeshadow when I used it Ė so I was using LG Spackle Ė but Spackle started it irritate my eyes and made them water. I tried this from a sample for Sephora. This is eye primer is easy to spread and doesnít tug at the eye area. I had no problem blending it at all Ė and it was super easy to blend my eyeshadow over it. It brightened the eye area and helped to conceal my dark circles. It made my eyeshadow POP! Super vibrant! But best of all? Iíve been wearing it for 8 hours (so far) and NOT ONE CREASE and my eyeshadow is still there and looks great. This is so hard for me to believe because I have the oiliest eye lids on the planet and with UDPP and LG Spackle Ė my eyeshadow was all melty and had become one color by 11am every day. So frustrating. But with this Ė so far, my eyeshadow is awesome AND my eyeliner is still there too! Iím stocking up on this! LOL
