Well..............it is nice to see from all of the other reviews that I am not alone in my frustration with the pump on this product!!! So annoying that you press it one time and way too much comes out! You end up trying to use it all and then having to wipe some on a tissue or whatever. A big waste. I can't say that I noticed any big changes on how my make up looked.......I mean, I think it does okay with helping eyeshadow stay put etc. but there are lots of products that do the same thing without having to waste a lot of the product because of that darn pump. I love Benefit products.......I hope they see these reviews or whatever and maybe reconfigure the packaging. I am debating on whether or not to return just because it is a hassle and I don't like returning cosmetics unless I have too!
i bought this because i am looking for a product that can ease my lines under my eyes so when i put on my concealer it doesnt sink in my lines. this thing is disappointing. first the pump always gives way more than what u need so u end up wasting a lot. then it just didnt do what i want and irritated my eyes a bit. i returned my and will not buy again.
I checked this out @ Sephora since I was running out my usual Urban Decay Primer Potion. They gave me a generous sized sample, enough to try the product for at least a full week. Within the first 4 hours after using it my eyeshadow had already creased. Save your $ & buy the primer potion from Urban Decay!
I tried this as a sample from Sephora and I really liked it. I have a lot of redness so I use it on my red spots and any blemishes as well as on my eye lids. It adds extra coverage and helps my foundation (liquid and mineral) stay on well. It keeps my eyeshadows from creasing and when I put it on my bottom lid, it keeps my eyeliner in place too! I really like it and will buy it again.
This worked for me but will not be repurchasing because of the pump. It dispenses way toooo much product. I've tried many ways to gentle push on the pump but it still gives me toooo much. I have others that work just as well without all the hassle. I'll use it at night when I have time to tangle with it.
For me, the product does keep my e/s in placed all day without creasing and that pretty nice and the color blends well on my lids. It's just too bad that it's such a hassle to get the right amount of product out.
i went to the Benefit Brow Bar in SF and had an MUA give me a makeover... I actually bought this product a few weeks earlier and hated it; and i think it was because i didn't know how to use it... the MUA first applied Ooh la lift, then stay don't stray, just a tid bit though.. followed by some kind of gorgeous in deep and hello flawless in i'm cute as a bunny.... we all know that MUAs have the magic wand to pull off your looks, the test is when you get home the next day... well i was on vaca and was able to recreate my look in the hotel using the techniques he showed me! no concealer needed!!! and i have horrible dark circles.. i use my index finger to lightly tap the pump so not too much comes out.. i hope they can find a better airpump for this product though...
I really wanted to like this, but it burned the skin around my eyes on application, make my eyeshadows crease, change color and mix together. I wore MAC gleam on my lids and a dark brown contour, and in a few hours the brown mixed with Gleam and made it brown, too. my eyeshadow creases in 2-3 hours. I also wore it with a different brown and in a few hours it looked orange. I don't even know why it burns my skin...crazy. It did make my concealer look amazing and last longer, but I don't wear concealer often, so it isn't worth $24. This was my first experience with Benefit, and it wasn't happy...sigh.
I really don't think this stuff works. I got it as a deluxe sample and I used it a bunch of times, and I didn't notice a difference. For eyeshadow priming I suggest Urban Decay Primer Potion/Too Faced Shadow Insurance...and for concealer I don't think there's anything you can put underneath it that will make it last longer...save your money and invest in a good concealer.
I purchased this product about two weeks ago n let me tell u I was not happy with it! It didnt work for me it did not do what it claims it does I bought it ad a primer for eye shadow n although u could easily blend the shadows after a couple of hours they will crease! The container has a pump n one pump waists more product than what u would needn tjetes no way of puttong it back in! One thing that I did like is that its a different consistancy from other primers u could use it as a light Concealer! But I would not purchase it again n ill go back to my Mac paint pots! Its also pricey for what it does n I'm returning to the store!
I love BeneFit products- so much so that I didnt even ask for a sample when this product came out. I just bought it assuming that it would be amazing. Overall, I am SO DISAPPOINTED! The pump dispenses way TOO MUCH for one use and I feel like I am wasting so much of the product.
It does an adequate job of keeping the shadow in place- but it didnt last for me through an entire 9 hour work day. I do have oily lids, but I have used other primers that took me through an entire day- or at least until I checked my makeup while I was stuck in commute traffic.
It took me about a week or two to get the right application and blending techniques. Even then, I noticed it changes the color of my favorite go-to NARS eyeshadows. I feel as if the color of Stay Don't Stray is a lot lighter than my actual skin tone (Mac NC35)
I am attempting to hang in there and make this product work for me, but I definitely will not be buying this product again!
